Nervous

Yesterday, Trump supporters violently breached our nation’s capitol building.  The authorities have things more or less in hand.  But the thought of a Trump-inspired coup succeeding still makes me nervous.  Historically, revolutions don’t end well for anyone.   Coups aside, I’m nervous about a democrat-run government swinging the pendulum far left in reaction to Trump’s…
