    I think that would actually make it more entertaining.  I’d love to have a chat with those folks that just got their brand spanking new ARs... 🤣
    You mean, as in, pulling your high capacity pistol and dotting some 'i's? :D

    Nooooooo....  Maybe........  Well if I was an actual resident of the new country (Home or business owner) I’d demand to see their IDs and if they can’t produce one I’d assume military invading force or foreign terrorist.

    The idiot mayor has already set the bar.  There is no turning back.   It is time for America to ask mayor Durkan what she plans to do now.  This is not a First Amendment issue.  If people in the area are not allowed to come and go as they please, they have been kidnapped.  If they are being extorted for money, food, goods, there is another crime.
    This is no different than a foreign country invading.  Think Red Dawn on a smaller scale.

    I wish you were right but the city is actually providing porta potties and other services to these thugs.
    Property owners are at the mercy of the occupiers.

    You gotta remember, the mayor likened this to a block party.
    There is another level of stupid at play here that I've never seen.
    That's all I got.

    Imagine if this "movement" decides to take over another precinct...like the one that houses 911 central!  OR it happens in another US city.   Glad its only a love-peace-in to quote the Mayor.

    And the citizens will vote for the same idiots next time.
    It's like they are ok with it. 😵
    That's all I got.

    Seattle's mayor says it is time to peacefully take back the district in Seattle.  It seems the summer love in has turned into a cesspool of shootings, beatings. Rapes and strong armed robbery.  I for one am waiting to see how peaceful this works out.
    In the rest if Anerica, buildings and statues are being destroyed. Not one member of Congress or the senate has stood up and said enough.  Tearing down the Washington monument or blowing up stone mountain is only going to piss off most of America. 
    Seems that is the actual goal. Civil rights and equal right has only been a front for destroying America from within.

    This too will pass. The events being sensationalized are comparatively small. That reality doesn't attract viewer recidivism. So sensational images, extremist rhetoric, and high volume, high voltage show and tell compete for mass attention. In due time it can not compete with the necessity of all of our daily work. That necessity will resume its timeless perpetual imperative.

    early you need to get out and see first hands what these people are doing.  They are destroying parts of America.  I am sure it will pass someday, but at what cost until them?
    Whats next, blow up Mt Rushmore?

    The statue in the park in a rural town I drove through yesterday continues its silent vigil practically un-noticed. Im sure it has nation wide company without measure. 

    I don't want to get out too much. Its not safe out there.  :)

    Just because your area of comfort hasn't been affected doesn't mean that the rest of the world around you isn't on fire. And it doesn't change the direction that things are heading either. My old man always said he figured there would be another civil war but doubted he'd be alive to see it but the writing was on the wall. So far he was half right. A ship can only take on so much water before it sinks.

    Unless my scources of information are wrong???

    The riots in the 1960's were of much greater volume and intensity. As were the 1963 NYC draft riots. As was the Bonus Army massacre. As was the post war reconstruction of the 19th century. 

    My area of comfort faces the same uncertainty as everyone elses. Same as always. I will not accept the premise of significant popular disagreement with my perspective as the nell of doom. Such is the incubation of extremism. My comments are meant as conciliatory, and not inflamatory. 

    Re fighting the Civil War would be a bit more than ranting against the tv or tearing down a statue. One battle killed over 50,000 people in three days. The smell lasted over a year. Bodies were still being found almost a hundred years later. And that was nothing to what happened in Europe down the road. Perspective...................

    The 1950's called, they want their ideas back.




    And the nice person of not-color telling him he isn't black enough to enter.

    Early, the Civil War ending and Reconstruction didn't settle the issue; it set up the conditions for the eventual Second Civil War. The history of why that is is readily  available if one wishes to search it out, just as the First World War set up the conditions for the inevitable Second World War. The truth is standing in the middle of the room pointing to itself but everyone else in the room pretends not to notice it. Whistling while walking past the  graveyard comes to mind.

    What it looks like to me is people that have different agendas of how they want to be governed. Differences that can be reconciled through the application democratic process. Instead extremists, politicians, carnival pie hocking pundants, profiteering news outlets, and opportunists cater to peoples fears, and generate general animus, and maliciousness in order to distract, make money, and sew the seeds of personal gain at the expense of people just trying to live their lives. 

    Everyone excepting an extremists minority will get real tired of ruined statues, ruined cities, no law enforcement, and empty pockets sooner than the cable tv screen can spin up enough hyperbole to matter.
