Can you remember when the Democrats decided to impeach President Donald Trump? It was when he first came down the escalator to announce that he was running! Democrats had already determined that they were about to elect the first woman president in Hillary Clinton. She had not only been the First Lady, but the Secretary of State! Things like “First Woman President” are exceptionally important to Democrats. They deem those “Firsts” as enormously important benchmarks. I’m not a Democrat, so things like a thriving economy, low crime rate, controlled borders, and a modest national debt seem of greater value, because the rest of us out there are more apt to thrive when the government is well managed.

There are, unfortunately, many who are a little short in the economics department, and don’t seem to recognize that buying a lot of votes with what seem to be important projects, also means that the people have to pay back the cost. The federal government has no money of it’s own! Every penny they spend comes out of your pocketbook, and mine. That’s why some of us get a bit alarmed when the talk of undefined “infrastructure” gets a bit excitable. “Infrastructure” is one of those words meant to cover a lot of federal misdeeds., as well, of course, as getting more votes. Getting reelected is several notches higher than some fancy repairs to a bridge.

Did I mention that San Francisco is looking at some fancy street waste cans that actually cost $21,000 each? It’s true!

We are just ordinary humans out there, we try to keep up with the news and understand what is really going on, but we have kids and houses and jobs and have to earn enough extra to pay for the bright ideas of some ignorant bureaucrats. Must be fun in a way. You can just shut down a whole pipeline and thousands of jobs, and blame it on climate change in complete confidence that not one in a hundred people have any real idea whether the climate is changing or not, nor if it is of any importance whatsoever.

What I was getting to in the first place is that the Democrats are now attempting to build up the absolute horror of the :”invasion” of the Capitol building on January 6. They are sure that they can somehow establish that the “invasion” was ordered and planned by the hated Donald Trump, and make sure somehow that he never returns to plague them again. We have read that it was planned and organized on Facebook.

Paul Allard Hodgkins was sentenced to 8 months in prison this week, after pleading guilty to
felony-level obstruction of an official proceeding for supposedly interrupting the congressional count of Electoral College votes that took place during the breach of the U.S. Capitol on January 6 of this year. Hodgkins’ is the first felony conviction to emerge from the events that “the mainstream media insist on inaccurately describing as an “insurrection.” Will there be more? I think the Democrats want every single soul who wandered through the Capitol Building behind bars for a very long time. Their dignity was attacked. They might keep in mind that they can be replaced, and voters aren’t all that outraged!

There seems to be a bit of double standard proceeding disrupting. Conservatives who disrupt go to prison, but leftists who do it just go on home. What Hodgkins actually did was trespass and demonstrate without permission on the Senate floor where he stood for 15 minutes waving a pro-Trump flag and taking selfies. Didn’t yield a weapon, threaten anyone, but merely seized an opportunity to make a political statement in an abandoned Senate chamber after others has forced their way in. Prosecutors openly acknowledged that Hodgkins did not personally engage in or espouse violence or property destruction. So there you go. Your elected representatives hard at work protecting the dignity of their efforts. Clearly this is the worst thing that has ever happened to them, and they want every single one of the miscreants in prison immediately. Their dignity has been mortally offended. Hodgkins is the first to be sentenced, It’s not clear if he has been detained all this time, or if there are others and how many of them. His prosecution and sentencing seems absurd and fairly outrageous. The Senators have been working hard at making a very big deal of it all for the last 7 months.
