Even if we're not the worst, that's no reason not to do better.

Most people were wearing masks including myself. And there was plenty of hand sanitizer available. We will see what happens in the next 2 weeks.

Worth it. Fark the GOP. They weren't going to play nice regardless.


My favorite part of the whole thing (& I'm sure 'why' they did so) is by painting that BIG BLM on the street, Donny's going to see it every time he flies in/out of the WH

/and hopefully some of his pilots just happen to hover over it for a minute or two

The fact that they're upset that there are words on pavement that get them upset shows their true motives.  All they're asking is to be treated like human beings and if that upsets them you know where they stand.

And that is unacceptable.

Cool cool.  Let's forget it then.  I'm glad we're finally admitting we're no better than Libya, Bahrain, india, and Lebanon.  Such a low bar to clear.

"Look afghanistan, iran, and Iraq, Saudi Arabia treat their women worse, so we're good."

When you're comparing our country to these countries it brings us to their level.

Olive Garden has an amazing strategy. How do you loot a place when the breadsticks are free? You can't loot that which is free for the taking.

Those assholes launched an attack on nonviolent protesters in *her* city. They tear gassed the rector of St. Johns while he sat on the stoop of *his own church* ministering the needy. And they have the balls to say that *she* is damaging her relationship with them? Painting BLM down the street was a perfect response on her part. You fark her constituency, you farked with her, now shut up and take your medicine.

I wandered down near the Lincoln for the 12pm protest and it was pretty full. It wasn't 1963 full, but I don't think it was the main gathering point for today. There were a lot more people near the White House and towards downtown.

Biden and Obama were great because they are both so good at talking to kids. They like kids. You can't fake liking kids. And talking and moving at kid speeds requires so much more focus and empathy than talking to adults.

I talked to my mom's friend that used to be in the Army Reserve. He said you are trained that you can disobey a direct order if you think it is not right. He said if you are with a commanding officer, and he tells you to go shoot a person in the head, you can disobey that order. He is said there was no excuse for the cops even rookies to be complicit in Floyd's murder. He is black, and he thinks a lot of people are riding the coattails of wanting change. He sees it as another trend. He believe people are genuine if they continue to work with organizations or groups that demands change, and not just go protest.  He also grew up in Milwaukee.

That was great & clearly not staged.

Trump would try to stage something like that, forget what was going on & then either refuse to give the kid anything (maybe if the mother handed him a $20) or be offended that someone black dared to touch him

Protesting and 1st amendment is very America; however, a sizable chunk of the Left has been spouting bullshiat about the USA being stolen lands and defending looting since the "country is a looted country" and shiat like that. 

It's like watching people stuffing their mouths full of cake while mumbling about the flour in the cake being stolen. Then don't eat the farking cake and go back to Ireland you twats.

American racial parochialism is nonsense. I spent all of a week in oceanic and European countries before I saw more open and notorious bigotry, which is a feat given their relative lack of diversity.

https://twitter.com/TheTNHoller/status​/1269420709501165568?s=19


That is how some of the riots started when they first began protesting. Some people were getting peppered sprayed by cops driving by them. People got pissed off and reacted. The other set of rioters were people out of state trying to start shiat, and at least one copy trying to start shiat. Same with the looters. I am not surprised they are still doing this.
