i am just a kitten and while i have studied a little behavioral economics in kittengarten, we have not started political theory yet, so please excuse me if this is a silly idea:
but it seems like if you send people to jail for obstructing congress, then probably people will stop doing it.
is that what you really want?
because based on what congress seems to do all day, i think maybe obstructing them ought to come with a stipend instead!
it could solve a lot of problems!
mightn’t it be worth a try?
Sure would like to see a large number of well deserving politicians headed to jail. Anyone remember Benghazi? How about Afghanistan? How 'bout running guns to drug smugglers in Mexico (and now, on steroids in Afghanistan)? How 'bout lying over and over and over to Congress by Congressmen and Congress Women and Congress-inbetweens? And, oh, so very many more "recent" incidents.
I don't agree with what Mr. Chansley did, but this is severe overkill.
20 years for taking a selfie in a government building while allegedly trespassing (People's House indeed) and willfully engaging in bad cosplay.
For reference, here's the sentencing guidelines for my former state on charges of RAPE, generally in a dead heat with murder for the most culturally and morally forbidden transgression:
Class D Violent Felony (Rape in the Second Degree) – At least 2 years, with a maximum of 7 years
Class B Violent Felony (Rape in the First Degree) – At least 5 years, with a maximum of 25 years
So. Let's clarify. The activities depicted in the picture above- which by all accounts are the majority of what this person did on January 6- carry sentencing guidelines almost as severe as the most heinous version of the most heinous crime in modern society- the violent sexual assault of another human.
liberals, who used to just want to take our money, now want to take our freedom... they are a scourge, a cancer ... the only way to reconcile is to part ways... succession
Elections have mother-fucking consequences.
stolen elections matter.
one way to keep an fbi plant from going to jail.....
the flag he carried had a sharp spearpoint!
Gato, most all your writing centers around critiquing. Can you tell us what you're advocating for and working towards as a replacement? Politically what do you consider yourself?
He can add the stipend to his FBI-asset performance payout. Maybe he could win an Emmy, too, like Baby C.
