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.
This was the plan. BLM leaders and Democrats knew this would happen. These riots were planned before the unfortunate death of the felon that was used to justify them. This is going to be a long and violent Summer/runup to the election. Pelosi and other Dems in congress have blood on their hands, they were part of this plan. It is past time to declare Antifa to be a terrorist organization and now time to do the same for BLM. Let's have the FBI do their job for a change and investigate who is funding and controlling these groups. It's time for some perp walks.
Instead of taking care of the greatest city in the world, we've got this asshole of a mayor painting this "black lives matter" bullshit in yellow paint, on the street in front of City Hall? WTF?
I was here in '77 when this place hit the skids, and this douchebag De Blasio was on his honeymoon visiting Daniel Ortega and his Sandinista pals in Nicaragua. (Who the f*@k takes their wedding trip to that hellhole?)
We are heading back to that crap with lightning speed because of this one moron, and it a f$^@king shame. Not everyone who lives in NYC is a complete liberal butt plug. Lots. Not everyone. I don't think there is another Rudy Giuliani hanging around to bail us out this time. The sick part? If these leftist sh*tbirds had another opportunity, they'd vote for him again.
Everybody understands that Antifa and BLM are highly-organized, well-financed organizations. Everybody understands that their actions across the country reflect much deeper planning than would be possible from a simple socio-emotional reaction like George Floyd's death at the hands of the police. They are too well-organized, too well-financed, and too well-coordinated.
Everybody understands that Trump is battling Democrats. But the battles he has fought against the institutions of the Fourth Estate and the Administrative branch since his inauguration are much more indicative of a fight with the prior Administration. How many times has it been pointed out that there are members of a 'Resistance' hell-bent on completing their mission, working in stealth within the bureaucracy?
How much further would one have to stretch their imagination to begin suspecting that Trump is really fighting the intentions of Obama's legacy? I'm starting to wonder if Obama decided that his Presidency would always serve to be the reference mark to this much-bigger, post-Presidency conflict. Is his planned legacy to be credited as the precipitator / enabler of a vast change in American culture?
Maybe ego demands that he be recognized in posterity on a level with names like Roosevelt, Lincoln, and the Founding Fathers. By transforming America from a Republic to a Socialist Paradise, he could finally be recognized as 'Great'?
