Truth is, #US history is a chronicle of white Americans rebelling, rioting, murdering, looting anything that moves. The veneer of civilized violence over "liberty" is tissue thin. It tore yet again, and some people got caught nekkid.
I understand why Joe Biden does not have a grasp of #US history. It would extraordinary, if he did. What I find particularly tragic and disappointing is that many of our friends on ["]the left["] seemingly have the same affliction as Joseph R. Biden."

"This is not even a logistics problem. This is a management issue and a coordination problem."
I was in a local grocery store, just picking up some food to cook dinner on New Year's day. And I was offered the Moderna vaccine by the pharmacist who had some extra doses and was going to have to throw them away. There were two people who were scheduled to come in and get their vaccines, who didn't show. And as a result, she had two doses left in the vial that she had prepared.

National Guardsmen begin leaving Washington following controversial deployment | TheHill
Besides the poor conditions the guardsmen were met with, an outbreak of the coronavirus rippled through the ranks in Washington. It was not immediately clear how many guardsmen were infected with the virus, but reports indicated that somewhere between 100 and 200 service members could have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Despite the threat, the citizen soldiers [BWAH!] on the ground [no cots ?!] say they have been given little information about the extension, and wonder why they are being forced to endure combat-like conditions in the nation's capital [sic] without a clear mission.

"Quite frankly this is not a `combat zone,' so combat conditions shouldn't apply," said one Guard member on the ground in D.C. who has deployed twice to Afghanistan.

C'mon, man, inaugural address, Jan 20, 2021, transcript
And now, a rise in political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront and we will defeat.

To overcome these challenges - to restore the soul and to secure the future of America - requires more than words.

It requires that most elusive of things in a democracy: Unity. Unity.

Democracy is not well understood.
