    What you went through is very greatly appreciated. Thank you for your service!

    Thanks. I’m not looking for accolades, though. I just want it to be understood that there’s a substantial difference between the two hardships where they shouldn’t be likened to each other. One thing I can’t complain about though… I put my name on the dotted line. I don’t think anyone signed up for what 2020 had in store for them.

    You deserve it.

    Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who made 2020 a lot worse than it would have been, including the president of the United States.

    Bitch McConnel I mean “Mitch McConnell for the first time publicly cast blame on President Trump for the violent attack on the Capitol earlier this month as he moved to try to preserve Republican sway in the Senate on the final day of the party’s majority status.

    “The mob was fed lies,” Mr. McConnell said on the Senate floor Tuesday. “They were provoked by the president and other powerful people, and they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government which they did not like.”

    Mr. McConnell’s rebuke followed an earlier statement that he is considering whether to vote to convict Mr. Trump during his second impeachment trial, which will take place after he leaves office and Democrats take effective control of the body, with 50 senators and incoming Vice President Kamala Harris breaking any ties to their advantage. At Mr. Trump’s first impeachment trial last year, Mr. McConnell took pains to corral all 53 Republican senators into voting against a conviction and succeeded with all but one of them, Sen. Mitt Romney (R., Utah).....”
