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.
"Trump’s repeated mistruths, unstatesmanlike behaviour and nepotistic employment of family members may have eroded the truth-based environment to such an extent that evidence-free shifts in issue position become increasingly easy."
Talk about making it easy. Is there a Pulitzer Prize for practicing journalism in a vacuum?
"Revolution"? I don't think so. Just a bunch of young white kids with nothing to do. Breaking things is much easier than making things.
I take them a lot more seriously than that. They have gotten people canceled in all areas of society. In fact there even seems to be very little opposition to their pulling down statues, looting stores, and proclaiming "autonomous zones."
In the American Revolution, there was an actual oppressor doing oppression things like severe taxes. Today it is a boogieman oppressor. These white kids claim to be oppressed which is absurd. The dem party wants a revolt against trump based on lies and tried to undermine his campaign and admin with the DOJ and FBI. The goal of "defund" etc seems to be that they do not want criminals arrested, want vandalism to be "free speech", and want a dictatorship of the woke mob. The goal is destruction of America.
These people better be more alert to who is in their movement.
In Madison, Dane County, WI, protestors firebombed the City County Building, housing juvenile inmates. Quick thinking deputies saved the day. Note that there are claims on various websites, that city officials, maybe even county and state, were aware in advance of the attack on the building and ordered the Milwaukee Police Department to stand down.
Why I moved the minute Trump got elected. No way the pants shitters would let that stand. The olive and orange tress are not the same as cedar and pine....but I don’t have to listen to the caterwauling of children so it’s a plus even with the time lag on SEC and PAC12 football.
One of the things I abhor about current education is that young people do not know how to make things. I believe that leaves them frustrated. They don't know how to envision civilization and create a future.
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
The second half of that proverb is an interesting follow on
