    I don't like blocking the roads- we get a lot of the from Antifa/BLM here. Only around here, they get violent and pull people from their vehicles and kick them in the head or shoot them.

    Wrt the bus, Trump supporters have a right to drive on the freeways too.

    I guess the snowflakes got skeered...

    True, you need to go check the traffic-carrying capacity of rail vs highway. Besides having plenty of highways, even normal rail would far exceed the carrying ability of the interstates. China has 200 mph rail running mucho frequently. Everywhere, like 10,000 miles of it or something. That's way more capacity than the US has. Way way more.

    There's 1.4 billion people here. I know it's hard to get your head around that until you been, say, at a train station during a holiday. If we go to New York at rush hour, the Assist asks "Where's all the people ? I thought this was a city ?" At spring festival, something like 3/4 of the people in the country are travelling back to grandma's. US interstates wouldn't have a chance.

    The little dinky countryside village I like to hang out in for holidays ? Has four million people.

    I went to Tiananmen for the fiftieth anniversary ... they say you can fit one million people in the square. I didn't count but all of a sudden you understand what claustrophobia is. This is something you can't imagine until you do it.

    Maybe your Nazis will finally show up Milland. Maybe they have been car pooling to underneath your bed every day. Fear runs through everything which you post and the fear is irrational and hysterical. I wonder if you will be able to handle a Trump win and have determined that you are a toxic and spiteful person and you will bounce back to your old poser games that you love.

    Oh my goodness, that's just horrible. How many cars did they burn? How many stores were looted?

    (Oh wait, scratch that, those are the left-wing rioters.........)

    If you want to get into an argument over who destroys more property during a riot, I'm ready and waiting. I've even got the popcorn bucket.



    Imagine, a fuss because someone caused a traffic jam. If that's the best accusation you've got against Trump supporters, you failed.

    Why don't you go burn some more buildings down to protest "the horrible traffic jam".

    This is a democratic country! Everyone must have the right to be in a traffic jam, even the ex-VP!

    Ooo I know I know under Milland’s bed or under a rock in his backyard. Maybe he can hang out in a pointy white robe and the car pool will take him out for some chicken fried steak. That may actually cure Milland some good Southern food and friendly Southern Hospitality. We are still looking for the reported Nazi’s and KKK members and any rioters we meet have not seen them either yet ANTIFA insist they are hiding well but are everywhere sort of supernaturals they suspect now a days.

    Oddly enough, on several occasions during previous riotous periods, cops have been identified as the instigators breaking windows and inciting looting.

    Not that COINTELPRO would influence my thinking on this, but I also remember reading about the Colorado coal mine wars and know that the weaponization of the panthers was by an FBI plant.

    I've got my own bucket of popcorn and know that in history, it's a standard trick to instigate violence, then bring in the troops to 'control' it.

    In fact, that's pretty much what Trumplestiltskin tried to do, with unmarked vehicles, nonuniformed gestapo agents, and illegal kidnappings. Pretty much straight out of the fascist playbook, actually.

    Add to that the "militias" wanting to kidnap/kill politicians, or the same trying to intimidate at polling places and other events.

    Slow boiling?

    I assume you have heard of Yuri Bezmenov

    KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov's warning to America (1984) - YouTube

    I'm sure the methods are well known by all nation's governments.

    And one of those "kid nappers" wants to kill the POTUS! Can you believe that crap? Why would anyone want to do that?

    And then the "organizer of the "militia group" is with the feds... ! I bet they do that just to confuse sheep!

If he didn't start out with millions he wouldn't have two nickels to rub together. He's NOT a businessman. He's a failure.

    He's "for USA jobs" ? He has been pres while fewer jobs were created even before the covid thing than any other president since Bush. His idiot tariffs cost thousands of jobs and billions of dollars. HD and Indian, for one example, moved much of their manufacturing to Poland fer chrissake. The tariffs he collected all went to farmers, billions of dollars worth. So we paid for his handouts to soybean farmers to cover up for the fact that he fucked up the entire system. If the moron had just left things alone, the self-sufficient small-government independent farmers wouldn't need a multi-billion dollar bailout. He's a fucking imbecile.

    He cut taxes ? Not for you. The payment for those tax cuts to middle class people is coming due. This next year you'll be paying much more. The 1% got a lot but you got shit on. It was a trick. Fooled you !

    And the post office, thanks but I like the damn post office. It works. It works good. It's probably the one real service I actually get from the feds. And he fucks it up just out of spite. "We're going to remove the automatic sorting machines to make it more efficient". WHO is stupid enough to believe that ? Let's all throw out our Haases and replace them with Bridgeports !

    Let's not even mention the national parks he is destroying. Excuse me, those are MINE (and yours), not his to fuck up.

    The man is a fake, an imbecile and a liar. WHY does anyone believe the shit that comes out of his mouth ? Compare it to the reality, for god's sake !


    Because he says what they want to hear. It's like when your wife's been fucking the seventh fleet, but your buddy says "nah, she's good" and you believe it because you want to.

    That doesn't make it true.
    “ Because he says what they want to hear. It's like when your wife's been fucking the seventh fleet, but your buddy says "nah, she's good" and you believe it because you want to.

    That doesn't make it true.”

    This might be the most useful statement you have ever made. Remove it from your constant Trump attacks and it is fine.

    That there's going to be a great abundance of gnashing of teeth and hurt feelings in another day or so. Trying to lighten up a bit, but I suppose it's futile.

    As for walking like a duck, I suppose openly criticizing the man for his actual flaws, while pushing back against allegations that don't make any sense (while being right in line with establishment politics instead) makes me a supporter, who... didn't vote for him? In fact, voted for someone else to hold the office, even!

    Please take a step back and engage your brain before declaring that others aren't using theirs
