Try to get into gear, my friend! You appear to trivialize a awful happening. It’s as if you are talking about a kids soccer match where parents ended up throwing bottled water at each other and one coach got his foot stomped by some angry matron!
You last “IF such and such“ is so I’ll conceived trivial and superfluous and has no bearing on this grave matter. If a child burns down the shed, the only concern we have is the safety of the child. That doesn’t threaten the Nation State!
Here the President of the most powerful country in the world, committed sedition that led directly to 5 deaths and scores of mercilessly beaten, (now hospitalized), police officers, who tried to protect our legislators.
There is also a clear and present danger he could launch a military attack on Iran before he leaves office!
In addition instead of 8,000 Trump insurrectionists, (many with police and combat training), returning, before the inauguration of the new President, every State Capital is under threat. We could have 100,000 domestic terrorists against 15,000 National Guard, loathe to fire on white patriots
I’m neither here nor there with the insurrection. It is what it is.
I’m suggesting that those who clammed to disgust and criticism either way for get their part in what eventuates.
You as much as anyone can know that a neglect on one part of a system, no matter how seemingly insignificant, can eventually amount to the patient dieing, or at least becoming very ill.
Ask ourself, how is it possible for the so called greatest democracy on the planet get to this point. Did someone not notice? Did you stand back and pretend it wasn’t happening? Has history unfolded to this?
The happenings of USA right now are as a result of systemic errors in judgement by the entire country. People divide themselves into groups, demand rights, resent responsibility, fail in the well being of all their people, confuse success with achievement, value commodities over old will, inflict their will on others, resent interference, argue pointlessly and do fuck all, bicker instead of compromise, consider military might as the ultimate power.
Really, Ash. Trivialise? I’m fucking serious as I’ve ever been. What I see is childish behaviour from all. Such a system cannot survive without significant change and it won’t be brought about here on OPF with Lemon and you doing one on one
Grow up, Ash. To and do something if you care that much. I don’t have to, except maybe tell my local member I don’t like the US defence being here on my home ground and I’d like him to tell them to piss of. Which I have done, and to the PM and anyone else who’s listening that can make a difference. And vote!
