The United States Capitol In Better Days

Yesterday when I uploaded my happy little French frogs I had no idea that I would dive into my photo archive today to pick out some photos of the Capitol in Washington in better days.

Shocked and but also fascinated, I watched late into the night the unimaginable but perhaps also predictable events in Washington DC.

Calls for the president's impeachment under the 25th Amendment (impeachment on the grounds of insanity) were growing and this is the place in history that Donald Trump undoubtedly deserves with his toxic persistence in his lies, but is this also the most sensible solution? I dare not say it.

I watched until the Senate and Congress showed the strength of American democracy and got on with what they were doing as President-encouraged riots set out to conquer the Capitol: Confirming the election of Biden and Harris as President and Vice President of the United States. USA.

Reassuringly, at the end of this day, American democracy finally, but alarmingly, there are still a small number of Republican senators and congressmen who support the president's evil fairy tale because they believe it best serves their own ambitions. .
