Mandy's Thu Blog: I Am Still Super Angry


WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY IS A TRAGEDY AND AN OPPORTUNITY I am still reeling over yesterday. Still genuinely shocked that people who associate themselves with my political party could create such havoc. And please don't tell me they were Antifa. Maybe a handful were, but most were not. The woman shot to death in the Capitol building sure wasn't. Four people are dead. We all have to get real about this and I'm starting today. Oh, but it won't be all Trump bashing, I've been thinking about how this all became a perfect storm that allowed this to happen. I'll share it with you later.

HOW DID THE SECURITY FAIL THIS BADLY? Why were these people allowed to storm the Capitol? Here is an overview of security failures but I think it comes down to too many people in power positions never thinking that Republicans would do something like this. I know I felt that way until yesterday.

I AM GLAD CONGRESS RECONVENED LAST NIGHT TO AFFIRM THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE It was the right thing to do and Mike Pence did the right thing by certifying it.

THANKS TO ALL THE PEACEFUL TRUMP SUPPORTERS IN DOWNTOWN DENVER YESTERDAY I may not agree that Trump didn't lose this election, but peaceful protests like the one downtown yesterday are the way to go. Thank you for truly being patriots in expressing your displeasure with the outcome of the election.

THE JEFFERSON COUNTY TEACHERS UNION DOESN'T BELIEVE IN SCIENCE As they held a rally yesterday to protest in person learning resuming in JeffCo. They did this even after charter schools have been safely operating since August, the CDC recommends in person learning and even our lockdown loving Governor endorsed it because the science says it's safe. But the union says teachers, who apparently don't know or believe science, don't want to go back in person. I get it, I love working from home too, but I'm not supposed to teaching kids who aren't learning at home.

TRANS WOMEN RETAIN AN ATHLETIC EDGE FOR YEARS AFTER BEGINNING HORMONE TREATMENTS And this is an important study for female athletes and transgendered female athletes who are currently competing. The Air Force did a study on how hormone treatments affected physical performance and found that the advantage for males on estrogen treatments remained for at least two years. This should be taken into consideration when allowing trans women to compete against biologically born women. It shouldn't happen.

THE NEW YORK TIMES DOES AN ABOUT FACE ON VIOLENT PROTESTS And this story about the reaction to the summer time editorial by Senator Tom Cotton calling for violent protests to be put down violently and how the Times views what should have happened YESTERDAY is a perfect indictment of the media that most on the left will ignore.
