2020 Reading Stats + Coup Thoughts: This is not a politics-free zone

We’re eleven days into January and I’m just now posting my reading stats.

Blame the jerks who tried to take over my country’s government last week while the president did nothing.

My nerves are shot.

In other news, this statement from Andrew Yang sure hasn’t aged well!

Gif from MSNBC of Andrew Yang, Former Tech Executive, saying, "It is not left. It is not right. It is forward."
Shut up.

Goodbye, 2020. Good riddance.

Last year was so bad, I have no intention of writing a retrospective.

Just gonna take my reading stats and go.

Before I do: what happened at the Capitol was insurrection.

The Capitol raid clearly showed how dedicated white voters are to maintaining power.

This was not Antifa in disguise – this was a full-on tantrum from people who believe the government belongs to them.

They attempted a coup with the intent to harm government officials and throw out Black votes.

They scaled the walls of the Capitol to instill fear and took photos in the House and Senate chambers like the whole thing was one big joke.

I will not be bothsidesing this shit.

Shame on everyone who allowed this security breach to happen.
