    Have you read "Galapagos" recently? I keep wanting to read that again, just to check our "great big brains".

    Make no mistake... even house minority leader mccarthy says trump is bears responsibility for the attack on the capital.

    I remember one of the Republicans speaking against Impeachment asked if any of the people assaulting the Capitol showed up because the President told them too.

    no! Good call.
    If interested in my blather, check out Robin Dunbar’s book on human evolution. A tad controversial, because all anthropology is, but readable and fascinating.

    [sidebar] Which one?

    I read one many years ago but forget the name and don't want to search my shelves for it. It was a psych book if I recall.

    Noted. In the future, please refrain from any discussions on how Black felons are disproportionally affected from voting. TMan acknowledges they full deserve to lose their voting rights for their decisions and should pay the price. AND we should CELEBRATE!

    Agree with you that there's no celebrating to be done in any part of the assault on the Capitol, but I think some, (not speaking for anyone in particular), are just glad we still maintain some semblance of law and order, with arrests and consequences. There were many arrests and consequences for BLM-related riots as well.

    I do, because I'm a sap, continue to feel sorry for people who were duped by the president into a state of hyper-anger that will now mark their lives moving forward. To become a felon as one follows Trump is a very common path over his lifetime. Just a **** human being of the lowest order.

    Inside job... I wouldn't be surprised if Boehbert helped these insurrectionists. The coming days and weeks will be very telling and frightening for those who aided in the sedition. Conspiracy charges INC.

    This (and many other things) is why this was an organized coup attempt.

    Anyone involved should be investigated and prosecuted for the parts they played, even if they were nothing but useful idiots for the cause. I also feel the same away about any other situation that involves rioters.

    My position is that as long as you're a US Citizen, voting rights should be inalienable.

    As do I but the irony that the party of voter suppression and gun rights may have many who lose their right to not only vote but have a gun is absolutely hilarious.

    Yes when you eliminate all context, it's just all the same.

    The last refuge of the moderate conservative: "mah both sides!"

    ...or when you insert context to cover your own ass.
    ...Laws are made to be followed, unless I'm the one who needs to break them when the "truth has been "colored"...;)
