Let's think about this...

Yes, we had to suffer for four years of a lazy fat slob corrupt incompetent going around wrecking things we hold dear (selling rights to drill on pristine land, take away protections for wild life, allowing more pollution, embarrassing our country on the world stage), and what did we get in return?

Thousands of idiot Americans videoing themselves with metatag devices trying to overthrow the government.

Ol' Joe can fix all of Fatass Trump's EOs and rescind most, if not all of Trump's orders, but society will be rid of some really very stupid, really very mentally ill, gun-owning MAGAts who will finally be getting the mental health services they desperately need...in prison.

In the final analysis...America has won and came-out ahead.

I would of preferred that they laid hidden and did not have the opportunity to recruit and indoctrinate a bunch of formally apolitical jackasses into believing they are not responsible for their own lives and must go out and kill everyone who doesn’t look like them or believe that the most important things in the world are carrying around guns and screaming about a book of faerie tales they’ve never bothered to read, much less understand.

Lots of radicalized, extremist law enforcement participated in the attempted overthrow of the US government on January 6, 2021. They're being hunted-down and arrested.

The people who really hate America self-select by going to events like the Capital insurrection or the Michigan statehouse invasion. It's important we put all of them in prison until they are grateful just to be out on weapon-free life-long probation.

They did recruit a lot of useful idiots, and it's important to, convince them they were misled and used. That may involve prison, weapons bans, probation, counseling, ankle monitors, etc. A lot of these folks are men suffering from testosterone poisoning, so chemical castration or mandatory tranquilization might be useful.

It's fine to believe anything you want, but we have to make it clear that when you act on those beliefs in a manner that harms others, you have to suffer the consequences.

Some will lose their right to vote. Some will die or be crippled by Covid-19. Some will lose their jobs or elected offices. All self-select. That's not irony. It's serendipity.

I think their actions have negated their "right" to bear arms, for life!
This is more important than the freedumb to own an AR15 to protect oneself from school-kids, even if they ARE on your lawn, and you feel threatened.

I figure most of these folks who were arrested will get little more than a wrist slap for their trouble.

After all, Kyle Rittenhouse is free, hanging out in bars, and is viewed as a celebrity by a majority of Republicans. His sentence will be light.

Remember the Bundy's? Where are they now?

There is no silver lining and Biden isn't going to fix much of anything.

I know! It's Day Three of the Biden Administration and why hasn't ol' Joe #LockedThesePeopleUp ?

Merrick Garland hasn't been confirmed yet. The wheels of justice are slow. Kyle is going to make a fine prison-bitch. smile

Maybe a year for manslaughter...How bout that guy who killed Trayvon Martin? He's still in jail, right?
