      A good read. But basically it’s a lot of purple prose just to say that he doesn’t have a clue what to do.

      He’s right, though, when he says that “The horrors they perform…in all but scale, rivals the barbarity of the Nazis”. Anthony Burgess wrote the same back in 1980: “The Nazis had, in a quantitative age, exploited the horror of surfeit; that was their sole new achievement” (Earthly Powers).

      I think they’re both right. And that is very disturbing.

    So, watching Fox News special last night on the RNC this coming week.

    Cut to a meeting of leaders of 20…count ’em…20 left wing groups planning protests and demonstrations.

    Next, interview with a member of “Bikers for Trump”, also planning to show up, in numbers. Other Trump supporters are figured to not stand by and turn the proverbial other cheek to all this bullshit.

    There’s concern that “anarchists”, the ones that dress in black and face masks, are also planning to make their presence known with the usual smashing, burning, etc.

    Cut to store owner who is prepared for whatever comes in the direction of his shop.

    Pretty evident that this is going to turn into a shit storm. A showdown of sorts between the usual suspects of the left and people who have about all they can take of their incessant crap, threats and inevitable violence.

    Why, for the love of God, cannot the left mind their own damn business, accept that there are other points of view besides theirs in this world, and let everyone have their say without feeling compelled to shout down and intimidate anyone who doesn’t agree with them? Freedom of speech to these zealots and tyrants means absolutely zilch, nada, zip!

    Gonna be an ugly week I’m afraid.

      Meanwhile, starting to look like open season on police officers…

      Much more of this, a great many of them are going to walk off the job and stay home…and who could blame them?

        What has happened to the police officers is sad and unacceptable in a civilized society. It does not surprise me. The only thing which surprises me, that it didn’t start soon.

        In both cases the police killings were done by Veterans of the middle east wars. I don’t know what that says about the war, the military, guns or anything else. When people fight for their country, come back and then kill police officers there is a deep problem in the country. People who kill police officers know it isn’t going to end well for them. What is it similar to are suicide bombers. Have Americans become so disillusioned by their own country that they are killing police officers and then committing suicide by cop?

        It is an extremely sad situation. However, given the number of black men murdered for being black, by police officers, there are still way more murdered black men than murdered police officers.

        It is most likely not going to get better in the short term given the hate mongering in the U.S.A. we have only to read about the Republican who suggested Clinton ought to be tried for treason and hung in the Mall. When that is how the leading politicians in a country “talk’/tweet” that country is in trouble.

      “20 groups”

      That’s the thing about left wing groups. They don’t all blindly follow one leader.

        “That’s the thing about left wing groups. They don’t all blindly follow one leader”. Lol, leftist groups remind me of Python’s ‘Life of Brian’ “….we’re the Judean People’s Front not to be confused with the People’s Front of Judea”

      Well there’s your first mistake… you were watching Fox News.

      I assume you were also chewing on tobacco with a can of open Budweiser near by whilst you ironed the wrinkles out of your confederate flag standing next to a pile of paper clippings about Obama not really being an American and how the “Mooslims” are lurking under your bed at night with Hillary just waiting to take your guns away.

      “Grrr… those damn lefties; why can’t they just mind their own damn business?!” [*As he seethes at his inability to prevents the gays from getting married and women from deciding what they want to do with their own bodies*].
