    Absolutely. And only mentioned because I assume that most cis straight people wouldnít even think of it. Heck, as a non straight cis person I didnít even think of it until jeppy helpfully pointed it out.

    Peaceful protests carried out legally are good for bringing attention to an issue, especially if they are enduring and if there are many many people involved. Iíve got nothing against it.

    The theory being that people are unaware of this issue, and this will somehow get more involved?

    Sure, protesting brings awareness to others who may not quite know about it, or may not think it’s that important until they see people turn out in the street, driving by crowds that are protesting, etc. Also it builds resolve for protestors out on the street, and it shows politicians what is up with their constituents.

    Protesting can be a fun, free, teambuilding activity.

    Hopefully, after yesterday's hearing, trump and "fellow" republicans will be prosecuted/held accountable for their actions. As Rob would say, "I will go out to celebrate."

    Not only would I celebrate but I have several upscale outfits to choose from now, all bought dirt cheap at the sold by weight Goodwill in Nogales, Arizona. I'm 100 percent ready apparel-wise, lol. Rob

    I'm going to wear my Antarctic expedition wear, because I think it'll be a very very cold day in Hell before they face any real consequences. Alas.

    Good news is I already have all the gear. (Covid put the kabosh on my planned job at McMurdo, alas again, but I had the clothing all sorted :-) )

    Sad if a coup attempt goes unpunished. Doesn’t bode well for our future.

    Why not to vote Republican--because they have let a Mafia boss take over their party, and co-opt it for domestic terrorism.
