So, This Is What It Means To “Live In Interesting Times”.

 

 

 

This is not the post that I intended to write today. I had, all lined up for your delight, about 20 photos of me watercoloring a kitty for Vicki in Portland (OR) along with  some deep thoughts about life for our get-together today, but then stuff happened in Washington, D.C. Namely, a coup attempt. And that is what I call a buzz kill.

Things were so innocent, in that pre-coup attempt time, last Monday, that I thought this joke by Stephen Colbert would be the highlight of my week:

But, before we get into the political stuff that I thought I would never have to talk about, I urge you to read the following with this soundtrack:

Also, because I have never typed so much about the official police force of the federal property in Washington D.C. I had to look this up:

Capital can refer to uppercase letters, accumulated wealth, or the city that serves as the seat of a country’s or state’s government. A capitol is a building in which the legislative body of government meets. In the United States, the Capitol is a building in Washington in which the US Congress meets.

So, that’s why it’s the Capitol police, not the Capital police. I’m sure we’re all glad to know that.

I’m just going to let rip:

 

 

 

 

 

So who are these hard-working, salt-of-the-earth, true Americans who love America and Trump and freedom and democracy? Here, let me introduce you to some of them:

 

 

 

I expect we’ll be meeting a lot ore of them, as they are rounded up, one by one, right?

 

 

Unlike Trump, some of the rioters have already been held accountable:And this guy:

 

 

But we have to ask ourselves, when it comes to a lawless crowd of traitors rioting in the Capitol, Who Could Have Seen This Coming???

Well, maybe this guy had a premonition:

Or this guy:

Definitely this guy, who, take note,  tweeted this on December 21, 2020:

 

 

And now, let’s talk about the Trumper traitors and white supremacists who have infiltrated the Capitol Police, shall we?

 

 

 

 

 

Remember  how the Capitol police guarded the Lincoln Memorial (which has zero living persons working there) from Black Lives Matter protestors in June 2020? No? See below:

I wonder what the difference is?

 

 

 

 

For those who don’t know, Rev. Raphael Warnock (above) is one of the two newly-elected senators from Georgia.

 

 

 

In spite of the cops’ best efforts to keep all the rioters safe and pleased with themselves, four Trumpers did die, and I’m sure they died happy:

 

BTW, Ashli, who had taxpayer-supported life-time healthcare and military pension *cough Socialism*, also had two active restraining orders out against her.

Here’s the guy on the left (above)  who had high blood pressure and died from “all the excitement” (see below):

His family released this photo — don’t miss the two hand guns tucked into his waistband — because they thought it was a good picture of him. What the fuck is wrong with these people?

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

Monday should be an interesting day. . .

The sad thing about the Wednesday, January 6 2021 Capitol riots is that they have overshadowed the wondrous events of Tuesday, January 5, 2021:

Thank you, Georgia voters and organizers, for giving us two new Democratic senators and control of the U. S. Congress!!!

Of course, no American election is complete without Trump making shit up about stolen ballots:

And the Georgia senate victory overshadowed the impeachable phone call that Trump made to the Republican Secretary of State of Georgia:

A day later, Trump did just that:

And four hours later, the Washington Post had the tape of the full one-hour criminal phone call:

And Fox News was shocked, shocked! Oh, no, not about the legality of Trump’s phone call, but about how mean Ratffensperger was to our president:

I hope this gets included in the articles of impeachment on Monday:

And even if Trump pardons himself of all federal offenses, there’s always state laws that were broken:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This tweet below is from the Republican candidate for Senate from Delaware, who lost last November, so I guess the House was saved from this kind of idiot:

Let’s all agree that Republicans are all just horrible, horrible people:

That’s it, Dear Ones, that’s my round-up of this week’s news. Breathe, relax all the muscles in your face, go kiss a kitty, and do something nice for yourself. Take that nap after lunch! Light a few candles at bath time! Play you favorite song real loud and dance n the kitchen! Put down that dreadful book that everyone says is so good but you can’t stand (I’m looking at you, The Last Samurai)! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have a great weekend, everyone, Next week I’ll upload all those pictures of me watercoloring a gray tabby and we’ll paint a kitty together and we will exhale, long and lovingly, and give thanks for  Trump’s removal from office and we are five days away from a return to sanity.

That’s my prediction. But you never can tell. Trump could be whisked out of DC by a herd of winged unicorns to the planet Gofuckyourself because that’s how crazy everything is right now.

We’ll see.

    Who would have thought that Trump could incite a crowd of his loyal wing nuts into sedition? How about everyone with half a brain who has been watching him subvert democracy for the past four years? by all means please get this guy out of office in the most shameful way there is, please. Let us make the name Trump as poisonous as possible so that all his grandchildren will have to change their names if they hope to get jobs at Chuck EE Cheese.

    Well … words fail me. I was thinking as people said, “it will be better in 2021” and “it couldn’t be worse”, that they were just tempting fate. Thanks for the great blog post, much interesting material and food for thought… plus a few giggles. Take care, stay safe and hug a kitty.

    Thanks for the well explained and also laugh out loud blog post Vivian. We really want to know who gave the orders for the police not to fire at/arrest/stop these terrorists, it was not an accident as everyone’s watched what happened to real protestors last year. But we may never know……. I hope they arrest and prosecute all these people, the USA should easily be able to do it unless someone interferes. A funny phrase I saw online for the terrorists was ‘Vanilla Isis’ which I thought was pretty good. Stay as safe as you can everyone!

  4. Thanks, Vivian, for the best and most brilliant recap of the past days I’ve seen yet. They should hire you to help suss out those folks! You should send this link to the FBI!

  5. What a perfect review of last week. Whew! It was exhausting, crazy!
    I know it’s not over, but praying it soon will be. Lock them all up and make our country great again.
