To me, this feels a lot like 9/11 did. I'm still processing, "That just happened? What the actual heck?" Except my internal dialogue language is a little stronger than that. I hope the situation can be resolved without further loss of life and the people responsible go to jail for a very, very long time.

 

Hugs!

Wounds left unattended and uncared-for, rot and fester. Leave it any longer and things will start to fall apart. It's amazing the reserved approach DC and Capital Hill police are being, even though somebody was shot and police were hurt.

Just heard from a person in DC, the person killed had disobeyed a "Stop or I will shoot" order while she was actively breaking a major window.  The shot was from a Law Enforcement weapon, but may also have been accidental on the part of the officer.

I missed this news day completely..haven’t heard a thing. As Jackie mentioned...it sounds like another 9-11 the way it’s been handled.

This situation shouldn’t have happened. I feel bad for those killed and injured.    People have been blatantly lied to by the president, politicians, and right-wing media.

It's probably for the better cuz it was very distressing.

Plus there were so many cameras on what was happening. Damn mob destroyed tons of the reports equipment during the event, but still everybody had there cell phone cameras rolling. Some people just don't have any shame. There were police who just gave up and let them go through the barricades, then some took selfies with the treacherous vandals. At least take a fire hose and water down the crowd to deter them from approaching. The police higher authority allowed this to happen, and they were warned several times. Peaceful protesters get full immediate military assault treatment barely outside where they need and want to be. Rioting mob of delusional people, breaking into a historical central government facility, 'TheCapitol'...only a few tear gas cans and flash grenades. Only 14 arrested??? Marshal's and other services had to be called from other states to assist cuz DC could do nothing...Nothing can describe the anguish my internal scream inflicts on my mind.

Hopefully, the arrest count will rise as the FBI starts rounding the terrorists up. Literal definition here:

 

"a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims."

 

They had weapons. They did all manner of property damage. They were planning to take hostages. Anything after that is speculation, but they did build a gallows.

 

You're right though, this stinks. The person sitting in the big chair in the oval office invited these people to DC on a specific date. They invaded the Capitol building. They disrupted the counting of the electoral votes. Their stated goal was to overturn a lawful election. They defaced who knows how much art, destroyed or stole who knows how much information and planted at least one explosive device.

And there were fourteen arrests. The police just let them in.

 

See also sedition:

 

"conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch."

 

and treason:

 

"the crime of betraying one's country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government."

 

I would dearly love a day when I am no longer ashamed to share my country with the sort of people who would do this. These people had their phones out and recorded everything because in their minds, they're patriots. Apparently they are patriots in the eyes of at least some of the DC police too.

 

I'm very disappointed in my country today. Maybe we can turn things around, but I don't have a lot of hope right now.

 

Hugs!

When people do dumb stuff (for lack of a better word) like this it makes me ashamed to be an American. You know that the rest of the world saw what happened yesterday, and just had to look at that and shake their heads at us. I have a difficult time believing these people are "patriots." They just wanted to tear up the capitol and disrupt legal proceedings. Maybe things will get better soon. 

Hugs, 

Gina

I saw a video the other day. A question posed by an American was, "Oh my god. Are we the rest of the world's Florida?"

 

The host, a Canadian, replied, "Yes. Yes you are."

 

I absolutely feel you @gina-nicole-t. What a disgrace.

 

Hugs!

Wow,  I’ve been watching the news ranging from CBS to NBC to Fox, and now watching Inside Edition.

How is it that Inside Edition has the most in depth coverage?

Quite possibly because Inside Edition doesn't really own allegiance to a major news network. They have the ability  to do investigative journalism without the "censorship" of their bosses. They have been able to do that through every major event since I worked the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. I my opinion that is what makes them better than regular news. They don't sugar coat the truth as much. 

Regards,

Gina

      That's really a wonderful story to read; not the attack, of course, but the community response.  Hopefully the victim will take heart knowing that she has friends in the community.  The attackers need to be punished, for sure.   Carolyn Marie

      I always just call but sometime I have to call a couple of times to get through. My last few appointments have been done tele-health and I was able to get blood work done out by me. They're over an hour from me so I do understand the drive to get there. When I made my first appointment they did ask if I had a preferred name, that's when the name Elizabeth chose me. They're good people there. No one has ever questioned or looked at me strange. Just made me feel normal.

      A bad situation that has a hopeful end.   https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/vehicle-parade-in-mission-draws-strong-support-for-student-attacked-and-beaten-by-peers-1.5877139?fbclid=IwAR0ys3klQAqGXIYfpoRbfniW3wJ7RLvgrFpZKAZsx9u9TswL-BFLkUQ1cDk

      I really wish I wasn't so lonely all the time but, I am to scared to leave this darkness that hides my shadow from me. 😭
    • Jamie68
      I'm guessing Howard Brown is about 1-1/2 hrs. away. I sent them a message once to get an appointment, they didn't respond. It's worth another try. I live about an hour south of the intersection of I-80 and I-55. Thanks

      I wish I could do my own nails. I live with some one right now. That dosn't like my woman side. On top of me working all the time. I just don't have the freedom, and time to do it. So the queen likes to get pampered.   The ladies were loving it this weekend. I was getting a pedicure, and my nails done at the same time, and I must have just had that look. Like I was just super relaxed. As they were doing their work.    Once I'm out on my own. I'll probably pick some stuff up, and figure out how to do them. As I'll have more free time then to. I'm also going to school for nails in the fall or next spring. So I would like to know somewhat how to do them before I start.

      I guess that I am hopelessly romantic. I keep listening to Christina Perri A Thousand Years.

      @AudreyCan't wait to see it, assuming all goes well.   My dumb ass (can I say that here?) inadvertently maybe outed myself to a customer today. We were talking about the service history on his account when I just had to say "Yeah, I remember from the last time I was there". Grant it, it was a few years ago but pre-HRT. I did manage kept moving through the conversation without missing a beat and side-stepped it when he mentioned me by my dead name as being his favorite tech. He's probably scratching his head right now trying to figure out when a woman came out and serviced his account.

      @VickySGV I understand exactly what you mean by the dominant personally of the father. Mine dominated me, and my mother, even though she gave as good as she got from him. Talk about a totally dysfunctional parental relationship growing up. I could never talk about how I felt to them at all. I know that it would have meant either conversion therapy in our church, or a beating within an inch of my life. All they understood was male, female, and straight. Gay, lesbian, was not in their vocabulary and to my knowledge transgender was not even a word yet where I grew up even though it might have been in other parts of the USA. They picked and chose what parts of the Bible to throw at me. From parts of the Old Testament to the New just to make me feel bad about being me. I truly believe this is why I had a really difficult time dating, making friends, and so on. They controlled how I felt to the point I just wanted to be alone all the time, and kids in school left me that way. Plus because they were also school teachers in the same district I went to school in didn't help with the friend situation at all. I never understood how they could act so different in public, and be such monsters in private. I guess that's why I didn't really cry when they died. The monsters were dead, and I could finally go on and heal my life and be me. I know I am not there yet, and it will take time.  Thank you for your wisdom, Gina

      @ElizabethStar Love the bunny slippers! @Jackie C. And the pretty work hat!   This thread is blowing up tonight, I was idle for a while and it said "show 15 new posts?" when I came back. Hope everyone is having a lovely evening. Pretty quiet here, which is good, but it's the calm before the storm I fear. I'm expecting a crazy busy workweek with five days worth of tasks crammed into four because of the holiday today.   Also - ultimately, I *did* splurge and buy the suit! In navy blue. I hope it fits, even though my body lacks the curves to really make it work. It's how I'll feel wearing it that I really want to know...   Love, ~Audrey.
