Sometimes we see other people’s problems more clearly than they are able to see them. About half of my readers are from outside the U.S. and it’s always interesting to get their perspective on what is happening here in the U.S. My special friend David, sickened by the events of last Wednesday at the Capitol in D.C., has written his take on our current situation, and in my book he is spot on. Thank you, David, both for this post and your (implied) permission to share!


It’s been just a week since one of the most sickening events in American History, some say since my lot were over there kicking ass before having our collective asses kicked. Whenever it was, and whatever it was are irrelevant as nothing in recent history compares to this. It was a definite attempt at a coup and there’s no denying that had the insurrectionists managed to get their filthy hands on certain people like Nancy Pelosi or Mike Pence there may well have been executions.

Whilst I don’t care for Mike Pence I think it ridiculous that he’s being targeted by Trumpites for letting Trump down. Firstly he obeyed the vow he’d made to the country-not to Trump- and secondly he did not have the power to do as he was asked anyway. What does leave me with a sour taste in my mouth and the obvious question, is why…

  1. Thank you for sharing!!.. most, if not all, assumed that this was America and things like this does not happen, therefore turned a blind eye.. the past events has been a wake up call…. this could have been avoided if common sense and wisdom had prevailed, but alas, such was not to be… perhaps it was Fate telling us just how fragile democracy is and what happens when minds become closed and no common ground reached… one has the left and the right and few inbetween,. 🙂

    The key now is to allow democracy do it’s thing and not to over react as one can view the countries of the world and see the consequences of over reacting… 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!

    • Thanks, Dutch … your insights are spot-on, as is your warning not to over-react. It is all too easy in these troubled times to over-react, and to judge. I find myself doing the same. That said, I don’t think it’s over-reacting to be concerned about the inauguration on the 20th, for these terrorists have claimed they are planning an even bigger attack, and after last Wednesday, I’m not sure our law enforcement agencies are up to the job. I will breathe much easier once I know that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have taken their respective oaths and are firmly ensconced in office. The Maya Angelou quote is ever so true … I think those walls have already been built, and now we must figure how to ‘un-build’ them! And thank you for the Irish Saying … those always make me smile!
