We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
So when can we start treating George Soros like an enemy combatant?
Brad Thor gets it right when he calls George Soros-funded BLM a terrorist organisation. So does the head of the Minneapolis police union, Rush Limbaugh, plenty of black cops, one Nevada state assemblywoman ... and if that's not enough of an odd coalition right there to show the fundamental truth of the matter, just keep adding names to the list until you can't help but recognise the facts.
Why does George Soros even have US citizenship given that he funds terrorism not only in the US but also around the world?

This guy spent his teenage years collaborating with the Nazis and turning in wealthy Jews and confiscating their property, so what do you expect.
Soros and co-conspirators inside and outside of his organizations should be charged with inciting riots and all of the other crimes they have been involved in. If we actually had a DOJ that would have already happened. Maybe if Trump appoints Rudy Giuliani to the AG he might do that.
Please tell me more, oh media elites, about how the Republican party is the party of faceless, elite rich men who want to destroy American freedom. Because these rich elite white men seem to be Democrat supporters and seem to be subverting both the law and a sense of fair play.
Relax. I recently had the pleasure of working for months in Mexico. They have it down to an ordinary civic manifestación. Lotsa buses from all over México converge on the Ciudad de México, park on all the side streets, and the people march up and down prescribed routes, chanting with bullhorns, petitioning their government for redress of grievances. Bored police wander the sidewalks, cops on motor scooters shadow the parada. One time I saw the crowd march down Reforma right up to the gates of Los Pinos.
Darn near happens every day. Definitely happens every weekend. It's how the people and the 1%'er elite converse.
In CdMex, el gobierno tolerates it to a point. The teachers had been running Occupy México for a week in the Zócalo. The Federales came in on Friday afternoon and cleaned them out without violence, down to the last, as the Mexico City Marathon was being run on Saturday morning and the Zócalo was the starting line. Not sure the all went, but the buses left.
Down in Oaxaca, it's another story. The manifestaciónes have been going on for months, major streets barricaded for days, with sporadic violence. The Mescal Country tours are discouraged for the visiting gringos, too dangerous they say. Maybe that's just the Mexicans wanting to keep all the good stuff for themselves, ¿quíen sabe?. Then again, the Oaxaqueños have been been a prickly bunch against the nominal dominant rulers of México for the last two thousand years. Nobody ever really conquered them, they all reached accommodations. The Oaxaqueños were too smart and useful to subjugate by violence.
How do I know this? Our company's security people sent us daily emails describing the day's planned festivities, the routes and times, streets. They got this from the Mexican government's web sites. It's all scheduled and planned in advance.
Apparently, the lideres del los protestantes y los gobernantes son cuates. Everybody just wants to have a good time, say their spiel, make their point, and get out of Dodge.
George Soros has been underwriting thugs for years, stashing them in Chicago, northern Indiana and southern Wisconsin with the help of Christian churches who house and feed them. I know.They pick up snack food at the drugstore down the block from me. Bus loads of them, ready to attack Scott Walker when he was protecting his position as governor of Wisconsin, Donald Trump when he was participating in the primaries in Illinois, and now when they are protesting the Trump presidency.
Let's terrorize the world. Where were they over the last eight years?
Well of course the rich can buy socialism. Robert Owen, a rich industrialist, founded the socialist paradise of New Harmony, Indiana. New Harmony had a couple of problems, it attracted needy, dependent people that wanted someone to take care of them and talented, ambitious people shunned the place. Alas, New Harmony only lasted about two years until Owen ran out of money. Like every socialist paradise, it wasn't self sustaining economically. Venezuela is the most recent example.
trouble is - a goodly portion of this cash comes from YOU the taxpayer via Obama's gifts to various businesses owned by Soros. Remember the $2 billion gifted to the Brazilian oil company owned by Soros? Some probably ended up in the Clinton Foundation and more is being used to rent buses and pay "protestors" otherwise known as rioters (or they would be if they weren't democrats). The lovely irony is that for most of them, they don't get minimum wage.
Al lot of the cash comes from the DOJ slush funds created with bank and Big Wall Street financial shakedowns prosecutions and plea bargains and settlements, which invariably involve paying into a "community reparations" fund of some sort. Yeah right. Funneled/shoveled out directly to every left-wing vassal organization.
Basic governance 101: no slush funds, all incoming monies go straight to the General Fund, no Department ever has its "own" money. We have failed this test. The Feds, States, and municipalities now all maintain "special" funds for "special" purposes. It's how the progros survive.
Liberals/progressives are parasites. They cannot survive on their own, they have to live off a host, which they then slowly kill. We should see the past 8-9 years and all the damage that has happened to our country (destruction of our economy, destruction of our healthcare system, destruction of our colleges and universities, etc.) as an example of what happens if you give these people any influence.
I would support legislation to declare the present Democrat Party a RICO corrupt organization, force its dismemberment, and then hopefully begin the reconstruction of an American Democratic party.
