I don't want to side track too much, just want to add DC deserves statehood if anything so they don't serve as a pawn to any future president because they aren't a state. 

 

And not absorbed into Maryland, not after what they have been through.

Then he'll just claim victory. Its become a no win situation until the SOB is out of office.

 

I support protests everyday until the election.

 

I do not support rioting and looting everyday until the election.

 

It's tough, some how the states need to figure out how to get the resources to allow peaceful protests during the day and stop the violence and chaos that seems to pickup at night.

 

That may require some "shocking" coordination with the protesters instead of trying to, checks notes, dominate them.

Maybe a . . . curfew?  Enforced?

We'll see man, curfew's approaching and still big crowds.

 

 

btw, being out of state, I always glance at the traffic cams to confirm what I'm watching live:   http://app.ddot.dc.gov/

 

Its hard to confirm what's actually live vs live footage.

"thank you President Trump" (from visionary's post with Jose Andres and Trump tweets)

 

There are more than a significant number of people out there who believe that Obama is more egotistical than Trump. Seriously.

No.  I'm fine with activating the full national guard in every state, as long is its focused on stopping the violence, not the 1st Amendment.

 

Normally you need permits to protest, have the states just given up on trying to steer folks towards the proper channels to hold folks who don't use them accountable?

Cross posting. Facebook is one of the most destructive things to happen to democracy.


So I agree, but I also see the benefit in using social media in countries that are oppressed. So to me, it’s a double edged sword.

 

I’m not the most well versed on the subject but wasn’t the Arab Spring largely possible due to social media?

Right to peaceably assemble is a Constitutional right (in the very first amendment as a matter of fact).  We cannot capitulate.
