It's homeopathic evil. The more decent people who go along with it in hopes of diluting it, the worse the effects become.

A coworker of my SIL's was telling her that she needs to give my brother a website they use to track scheduled protests and show up armed "in case law enforcement won't do their jobs." My brother looks like a good ol boy, but isn't. For Christ's sake, his wife is Indian. They've had to deal with more racist bullshiat in the last 4 years than ever before. I guess at least the racist assholes my SIL works with are making themselves known to her so she can be careful around them.

/also, these assholes are nurses. I'm sure they're giving a high level of care regardless of patients race, origin, etc.... /s

Atlas Aegis is not licensed to provide security in Minnesota, according to Richard Hodsdon, chairman of the Minnesota Board of Private Detective and Protective Agent Services, a state regulatory board. Hodsdon said that Atlas Aegis told the board this month that it was recruiting on behalf of a licensed company in Minnesota, but he said that it declined to provide a name to the board.


I don't think that "don't worry about it, I know a guy with a license" is a valid response to a licensing board asking to see your license.

Hope you're right, but as countless recent events have shown us, mixing armed fanatics into already tense situations can be deadly.

3000 of them? Nationwide?
Somebody is going to get hurt. And don't count so much on the cops - they are often on the wrong side.

Guys... I have been around a long time and I have never made a call like this.  No matter what "side" you are on you should hit the streets in peaceful demonstration if the election results are not honored.  Democracy has been under assault for a long time but if that happens it will be the last battle for it.

Pretty heavy stuff, but it is true.  The public will lose the last little centimeter of power it still hold on to.

I humbly submit "a taint".  It's a nasty body part, but also a word for dirtying or besmirching which is exactly what a taint of Trumpanzies would do.

I think the preferred nomenclature is "alternative good."


That works, in the sense that homeopathic medicine doesn't contain any of the active ingredients and this does not contain any good.
