[[ vote_1_value['OULHN9KxD7f5'] | number:0 ]]
The jury is still out on who was, or was not, involved in the January 6 coup attempt. But I’m disheartened that some Americans don’t appreciate the value our government provides. When the “greatest generation” finished its work, the government took care of the sick and wounded. The GI Bill provided...
