News of the day:
I was so disappointed and HURT on January 6th when our Capitol Building was defaced and treated with
such disrespect. I was just as disappointed in our President who did nothing at

wrote, noting that the president and federal government have the power to put
down insurrection and punish those who engage in violence.
So I don’t

more likely — less bloody
but just as disastrous — if we remain on our present course: A country
