    Riots, curfews, martial law, runaway pandemic.

    There really are no words.

    Thankfully I have the luxury of being far from the action. As long as the murder wasps stay away.

    When I see the overwhelming majority of peaceful marchers--racially diverse, but almost universally young, I see millions of new votes--not excited by Biden, perhaps, but determined to drain the swamp from the Loch Ness monster on down.
    The force Trump is unleashing will be nothing compared to the force against him November 3.

    Just a bully that sees a way to push people down and use his 'gang' to do it.

    But he won't be leading from the front.

    I don't know, if someone had told me a few years ago that Donald's presidency ended after an impeachment with riots, violence and thinking about deploying the military against his own citizens to fight a made up enemy I would have said, "yep, sounds about right".

    We were warned Obama would do all this. It just took longer than expected to pull off.

    Thanks, Obama!

    That action would make Trump unambiguously responsible for the results. So far he has avoided situations like that.

    Rumsfeld: Looting is transition to freedom

    "The task we've got ahead of us now is an awkward one ... It's untidy. And freedom's untidy. And free people are free to make mistakes and commit crimes and do bad things. They're also free to live their lives and do wonderful things. And that's what's going to happen here," Rumsfeld said.

    "While no one condones looting, on the other hand, one can understand the pent-up feelings that may result from decades of repression and people who have had members of their family killed by [the powers that be], for them to be taking their feelings out ..." he said. "And I don't think there's anyone in any of those pictures ... (who wouldn't) accept it as part of the price of getting from [repression] to freedom."
