There is a failure of leadership in the Senate. I noted a thread by a reporter asking many Senators about the events leading to the President’s photo op in front of St. John’s church in Washington. Non-violent protesters were petitioning our government for redress of wrongs. This is written in the Constitution. ‘Congress should make no law…abridging…the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.’ When questioned about reports of these protesters being teargassed, several senators walked by without comment. A few made modest comments signifying nothing. And a few others said, ‘I’m late for lunch.’
The country is burning, and you say, ‘I’m late for lunch.’ These are not serious people and we need to start removing them from office.
While Senator Graham advocates for another round of hearings on Hunter Biden, I advocate for immediate hearings on policing in America. We need to show the country that we want reforms. We need to show the country that we are doing our jobs. Forget Hunter Biden. Forget the President’s tax returns. It’s time for leaders to lead.
There is an obvious problem with policing, and it is complex, has many facets, and the solutions aren’t easy. This is just the kind of job an engineer wants. And I want it. We should dig in, get our hands on it, and do the real work our country needs us to do. Let’s start.
And by the way, I don’t eat lunch.
