Yup. In Russia they know how to prevent such problems. Opponents of the Tzar simply die or disappear. So simple. What took us so long.
If Trump gets elected again, I will be shocked if he isn't assassinated. I suspect it won't be a foreign power, but more likely a member/department of our own government at the root of it.

This next election is going to get ridiculously nasty behind the scenes. ... real-life plotting, corruption and scheming.
I'm starting to root for Russian interference in hopes that DC just gets wiped off the map.
Such fighting and hate among ourselves, I've observed this for 63 years(I was 5 when I got called the "N" word for the first time). It is clear to me that "It does not belong to man, who is walking, to direct his own step." We are suppose to be the "civilized" nation, "the top of the crop", but this fighting between repubs and dems, black and white, rich and poor, Californians vs the 49 staters, citizens and non-citizens is just....I hope you guys don't think that you are really going to come to some sort of unified agreement, even in your grankids lifetime, do you?...It's silly.

We'll, we know that the Roman Empire didn't last forever.

I don't fit my flame suit anymore...

Spot on. It’ll go away about the same time as ME conflict. In other words, never.

You posted that like you don't think the last one was that way. But yeah, it will get worse I'm sure.

The wisest words I've read here (or anywhere) for quite a while!

What I feel missing in our culture (starting with our education) is some humility to acknowledge that we don't and will never have all the answers, and it's OK to live with open questions. It is un-American to not be always proud, self assured and have all the answers. It's unpatriotic to exercise self-reflection or ponder whether some answers might come from other groups or places.
I see this basic disconnect between us espousing frontier individualizm vs. our strong need to belong (and conform!) to a pack, be it a sport team, a cable network, a party, a look, etc.
There, now you know where I sit...

Seemed to be a pretty one-sided coup attempt last time, not too much fighting or nastiness at all... ;)

I'd go so far as to argue that questions should be taught. Question everything in fact. I had an incredible Civics teacher in high school that opened a lot of people's eyes before being canned for not towing the school system's agenda. African fellow, displaced by wars in his home country. The basic thought was to question everything, including things you previously thought to be true. Look at the motivations of the individuals, groups, etc. In almost all cases, you only have to dig 1-2 layers deep to see the true motivations for most actions.

Of course, we're now in a society that expects only teachers to teach instead of the parents fulfilling their own role as educator. Once you get into that system with no counterbalance at home, you end up with good little government robots that are taught to have all of the answers given to them. Same applies to church-based private schools. I'd expect those kids to come out with thinking beneficial to whatever religion runs the school. I doubt there are many classes in public schools that teach kids to question government anymore than there are Christian schools teaching kids to question the existence of God.

A world gone awry.
I've known for a long time that many American's, and I have to choke calling these morons American's, are so stupid they don't know they are stupid. They take mass media news at face value when it is at best, terrible fiction, and not even close to actual "news". There are so many people I used to call friends, that I now wouldn't let in my house or anywhere near my children. My Filipina wife and daughters are far more intelligent to how the world really works than many home grown "Americans". Our education system hasn't just failed us, it has hoodwinked generations and, it seems that only a few citizens have the moral and intestinal turpitude to know reality and see the danger in front of them. My day has come and gone although my voice will never be quieted. But it is up to my wife and kids, who have been here all of 6 months, and their generation of wise Americans, to save this country from the hell that is coming. I do have hope every time I hear a 20 something that shows they think instead of just regurgitate. God bless them and their kind, I hope they prevail.

Well AOC is in for a ride:


Representatives for Ocasio-Cortez did not return an email seeking comment.

Eight Republicans and four other Democrats besides Caruso-Cabrera have announced plans to run against Ocasio-Cortez this year. The filing deadline for the June 23 primary is April 2.

Great news. My passenger window was broken recently on the company work truck I drive to San Francisco daily.

Also, there is a phone number you can call to report the feces for cleanup .. although, I still have yet to witness single dropping in my travels between North Beach and South SF / Hunters point. We may take another job on Treasure Island also .. the Navy's radioactive dump site needs new infrastructure and multi-million dollar condos.
