What are the opponents of the January 6 Commission afraid of? – Twin towns
Some politicians oppose the formation of a commission on January 6. I do not remember such opposition to the 911 Commission. Obviously, the insurgency of January 6 was much more threatening for the future of our country.
So why the opposition to a January 6 commission?
There may be concerns that more culprits will be found.

Take the guns off our streets
St. Paul and Minneapolis have two of the most capable police chiefs in the country. I have resided in the Twin Cities area since 1938. But these cities are deteriorating.
I no longer go to downtown parties. It’s too dangerous. My wife and I wanted to take the tram all over the area, just for fun. Not going. Too likely to be robbed or assaulted. I graduated from St. Paul High School, attended Hamline, graduated from U. I never had any problems. I knew and I was hanging out with kids from Mechanic Arts and Central, families I knew in the Rondo area, used to go to the theater there. No more.
Theater events and other evening pleasures that I gave up. As part of the group, I walked back to Harriet Island after dark. Working at the Metropolitan State, St. Paul Cable, the former Emporium, has interacted with people of all races that exist. Never had a problem. Most people are good citizens. Today I am afraid to approach most of these places, I cannot go to MIA and I am worried about my relatives and friends who do. I can no longer spend money in the central cities.
The problem is simple: too many guns. I could get shot while driving on University Avenue. A 10-year-old girl gets shot on her trampoline? Was she laughing too hard? City councils are supposed to deal with these kinds of issues. Leave me alone! Get the guns off our streets.

What do the Democrats represent?
It is certainly not democracy. Not with their insistence that there were no problems with the 2020 elections, despite evidence that there were alarming problems in many states that were audited (qu ‘they seem to want to stop). Not with their nationwide efforts to prevent “one person, one vote” methods of verification. Not with their insistence that all states be forced to conduct their elections according to the S.1 / HR1 method and not what is best for each state. There are issues with “ranked choice voting” that should be resolved before it is imposed on everyone.
It is not law and order. Not with their insistence that the January 6 insurgency was one man-led and that he should be punished. Not with their suggestion that all the riots, destruction and deaths since George Floyd’s death were justified or ignored if it didn’t fit their “cops are bad” story.
RELATED: What Does GOP Mean?
It is not the primacy of the market economy. Not with their protectionist policies towards unions or companies that are “awake”.
So, Democrats, tell me what you stand for. Please tell me this is not hatred of Donald Trump and all he stands for.
