So there policy is you can’t express your feelings at a protest? Hope that is in writing. January 7, 2021 at 3:54 pm Rosenblatt says: Well-loved. Like or Dislike: 91 25“his post does not indicate he stormed anything” Technically correct, but he said “we’re all trying to get into the Capitol to stop this.” That’s not just “expressing [his] feelings at a protest.” He admitted his illegal intent to overtake the Capitol to stop the certification from happening. Good for Goosehead. January 7, 2021 at 5:29 pm Craig Winston Cornell says: Poorly-rated. Like or Dislike: 9 19Hidden due to low comment rating.

Violence is never the answer but these proud boys & girls are guilty of sedition and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Maybe if they lose their jobs they’ll understand the plight of those to whom Mitch McConnell et. al. won’t give more than $600 bi-annually. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

Click here to see.your statement is exactly what is wrong with this country today. Rather than think maybe there was election fraud or maybe a group from within “adjusted” the numbers to favor one candidate, you simply assume its a lie. the problem here is that maybe just maybe your party is lying to you maybe not. because of all of the secretive dealings on both sides no one will ever know. before you start spewing your opinions in the future make sure that you are not demeaning the opinions of others just because they do not agree with you. as for myself i believe there was more fraud then usual in the normal election process, do i think it could have been enough to change the outcome not particularly but i just like you will never know the extend of it. with all of the items that came out and laws that were broken to me the simplest thing to do for everyone is redo the elections where the evidence shows that laws were broken on a large scale, those places would be Arizona and Pennsylvania which is not enough to change the result of the election, but it would ensure that each person in those states are confident that the outcome was reasonable and just. While i do no agree with how it was done every one of these people had a right to redress their grievances with the governing body, when your “representative” on both sides of the fence ignore you, what choice do you really have? moving on you the stimulus statements, how about this if your deathly afraid of the virus stay home, protect yourself how ever you see fit. but that small percentage of the population should not interfere with the rest whom choose to walk free as the constitution allows. had the states not issued those unlawful orders all of us would have been much better off, we could have went to work, the store etc freely and then the stimulus wouldnt have been needed pandemic unempoyment would have kicked in for those who choose to stay home for fear of their health. instead we have a government that encouraged people to collect socialist welfare, to not be a positive contribution to society. again there are always more than two sides to the story but your statements are definitely one sided and unfortunately inaccurate.

Safe to assume there’s no real evidence and you’re just believing lies by a grifter and a con man. January 7, 2021 at 7:41 pm MeowMixerq says: Hot debate. What do you think? 37 43LOL First of all, I need SPECIFICS! Because standing your ground against murdering COPS, is not a “bad” thing. And since cops were LITERALLY caught attacking PEACEFUL people, I need you to show me SPECIFICS!! Who was participating in UNJUSTIFIED acts during the 2020 protest and didn’t lose their jobs? Because I will need you to explain to me why a person that stood in the STREET to PROTEST STATE SANCTIONED MURDER of Black people should lose their jobs, just because some Seditious White supremacists TRIED TO OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT.

(Dumber) And he stated on his video that he wanted to force an audit of the Dominion machines? Oy vey…what a mental midget. I’m sure Goosehead will look into who hired him….lawyers are a dime a dozen and this guy’s an obvious idiot. January 7, 2021 at 5:18 pm Craig Winston Cornell says: Poorly-rated.

Since thousands of people participated in the violence in multiple cities for months, there must be SOME brave business that fired someone somewhere (even though they were leftists).

Like or Dislike: 48 13I’m fine with businesses firing people for committing violence, either for pretending they’re done in the name of the BLM movement or for clear acts of domestic terrorism. I’m surprised you’re not more outraged that police had kid gloves dealing with 99% of these rioters. It’s somewhat a false equivalence to equate rioters losing their jobs and getting fired for treasonous acts when the alternative for people of color is to be beaten, jailed, and killed in a lot of cases. The BLM protesters agree with you, they’d much rather prefer to just lose their job than their life, dignity or freedom. And every insurer I’ve worked in required that you disclose misdemeanor/felony convictions. If you’re convicted of violence/looting(yes, for whatever reason, leftist or not), you’re most likely gone. It’s fine if you disagree with liberals. But don’t start defending what happened at Capitol yesterday and saying what about BLM? What those people did when they disrupted Congress was a disgrace and doesn’t warrant a comparison. I don’t want to equate radicals breaking into a symbolic building and disrupting lawful government functions as the Republican answer to BLM, do you?

Like or Dislike: 38 8He’s facing 20 years in prison so losing his job ought to be the least of his worries. His main problem is that he took part in a textbook case of seditious conspiracy. Read the statute keeping in mind that the purpose of this conspiracy was to stop the counting of the Electoral Votes, which they did. It’s pretty cut and dried. “If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both”.
