Trump extremists crossed the line

After spending this last week digesting, regurgitating and agonizing over the events of (Jan. 6), I am reminded of what my veteran father would have done.

No matter where one’s political persuasions lay, our fathers and mothers and elders fought for and gave their lives for preserving this nation and its democratic symbols and institutions.

I wonder if Congresswoman Lauren Boebert appreciates what our parents did for us? Sounds like somebody needs to be taken out behind the shed and taught a “civics lesson”!
