    What a absolutely disgraceful display of our modern youth and what Democrat policies create.

    'Funny how I didn't seem to notice anyone walking by carrying boxes of work boots?

    I think it's past the time for the military to step into these areas with a show of force using armed soldiers, tear gas, flash bangs, MRAPs, and LRAD's to disperse and arrest these crowds of miscreants. F#@! these scum, they've forfeited their rights as soon as they started looting, destroying properties, and hurting people...

    Looks fine to me... just some joggers, people riding bikes, and some fine youths getting involved in urban renewal and community organizing and rebuilding...





    ... said every thug arrested yesterday.

    The real travesty is that those elected to serve and lead these cities just pulled out, lock stock and barrel, and left them to fend for themselves. They should all be tried, convicted and serve a couple of years in jail.

    The Dems are actually more scared of that, and the Trump/McConnell/Repub Senate majority which has been running the tables since 2017 on getting federal district and appellate judges confirmed, than anything else in the Trump agenda.

    Even before you get to possible SCOTUS appointments in Trump's 2nd term, the last four years have seen the continuous seeding of the federal judiciary with Trump appointees who have a conservative/libertarian judicial mind-set and a deep suspicion of the Administrative/Deep State power structure.

    These are the more scholarly Federalist Society types who Schumer and other far left-liberals would ban from being even considered, either due to overt membership or some provable connection, but would still allow the lefty ABA to push mediocre left-wing collectivist sycophants who happen to have law degrees.

    I read SHTF online stories. I used to laugh at how fast in the story society breaks down. I was WRONG.

    I was 18-20s neighbor pulled a fast one. Dad and I discussed it. I could do it even better, and it actually was “legal”
    My mom told me “if you do that you will NEVER eat at my table again”. I quickly decided $50k was not worth that.

    More then once when I did something that might be illegal. (Shoot a deer, bring it home and butcher it 4th of July). She was going to call the Sheriff. Till I explained a car hit it, badly injured, Police informed I finished it off, a permit to let me harvest meat.... I knew dang well she was serious.
    I joke of going to cities to loot. I couldn’t do it. She’s been dead for over a decade. I’m still not allowed.

    My dad would have beat the hell out of me, then my mom would have shamed me to death.

    Yes, there's the judges as well.

    I think the Dems are fighting for their lives. The things that are being done reek of desperation and are unprecedented.

    It seems to be one thing after another.

    And yet they still don't have the stones to try this stuff in a Republican town.

    It is my understanding that insurance does not cover riot damage. The store owners lose bigtime.

    Dad hated to physically punish us. Often I would prefer a physical punishment to disapproval, perks revoked.

    I got my mom mad when she “spanked “ me and I asked if she was done. I’m not ticklish, rather high pain tolerance. Nights are where I feel it. I block all day.
    Much better then Being chewed out.

    I believe it is China controlling the zombies by remote control through those little boxes attached to the end of their arms. They can't take their eyes off them.

    None of them looked exactly like they were starving and no one was "just trying to feed my keeds".

    Well...yes. Just as it took only 3-4 weeks in March to peel away the liberties that this nation was founded on. Freedom of assembly? Dead. Freedom of worship? On life support.

    The Founders understood this-hence a system of devolution-power spread among multiple branches and governments. It remains t be seen if that design will endure and save us....
