The pathetic goons who call themselves “The Boogaloo Bois” and others of that ilk failed to show for their planned Capitol takeovers. They chickened out because the U.S. Government showed…

I am a Marine Corps Expeditionary Medal recipient, so give me that respect. Respect that I know something about military service above and beyond some who haven’t been ordered to risk their lives in a hostile environment. That is all the respect I ask for and that is all anyone with my credentials deserves.
