    True. There is a distinction, and it's even worse. Many of the shutdowns are just edicts. Maybe all of them actually. Politicians weilding power never even given to them by law.

    The thought is, you don't lose your constitutional rights just bc some politician says it's in the public interest.

    But the police go in and enforce the edict as if it were law.

    I'm not sure how or why Courts haven't been taking cases or lawsuits to overturn the edicts.

    Anyone have any info?

    Still amazed there wasn't more during the certification vote. This inauguration needs to be heavily secured.

    Wow you got me. Dude at least stay in roooc when debating. And saying birch she. Your point is “duh I’ve been to Seattle and Portland” names you look like a stupid teen.
    And what’s funny about your continued idiocy is that the right actually disavows their violence, unlike you and your constant cowardly dodging

    I can remember when BLM and ANTIFA had surrounded the White House, were rioting and harming the Security Guards for the President, the president was reportedly taken to a secure bunker, yet repeated calls for Virginia and the DC mayor to send police or for the national guard to be sent to protect the White House and President were ignored. It was said that only Maryland sent national guard troops since the Maryland governor was a member of the GOP.

    Glad that DC is good and secured with the national guard this time. Hope no violence happens. It's nice to see that the Democrats do like the police after all.

    It's crazy how you throw out random off topic and poorly worded claims or challenges, then just keep calling me a coward or say I'm dodging.

    In this case, you're making a super vague claim about me not acknowledging leftist violence.

    I'm down. Let us do an accounting, and see which side has the bodycount, since that's the one metric you people seem to appreciate, until the numbers are actually brought forth, that is.

    I brought, what, 34 deaths, specifically attributed to right wing ideology AND in which the killers cited countless popular right wing "thinkers", pundits and politicians.

    I'm here, boyo.............

    Pretending your side never does anything wrong. Having the news cover for you and make excuses. That’s what the soft has done.
    Meanwhile the right disavows any and all violence from its side and doesn’t have the media run cover for it Notice how the right here has said the riot was bad. You don’t have that from the left with all the BLM riots. In fact you never admitted there was violence, not even from antifa
    I’m sure your mom loves your attitude and it makes you the edgiest person in the house.

    I am hoping the 6th was an anomaly. Thousands of batshit crazy, but otherwise peaceful Trump supporters getting caught up in the moment of an inciteful speech. Then they were nudged into a weaksause insurrection attempt by a small group of well prepared anarchists, hate groups and domestic terrorists. The fact that many of them boarded planes to go home the next day like they were at a kegger shows they did not grasp the magnitude of what happened.

    We are going to find out on inauguration day if that was the case.

    There is no ambiguity about what lays in store for any malicious encroachment this time. If there is an insurrection attempt, it will not be a pick-up game. Only serious people will be playing. Everyone that participates will know it's not paintball.

    My guess is that after what happened on the 6th, fewer Trump supporters will come at all. And the ones that do will be subdued. I think if there are real attacks, they will not come in DC, but in other places. The true bad actors in this are not idiots. They are preparing and planning. Even a small number of well prepared, well armed people can cause an enormous amount of trouble. But what is not known is just how many truly bad actors we are dealing with.

    With a name like that, I'd say "send billions more to the MIC"

    But, not sure how that makes it any different than the Democrats and Republicans.

    Worst case scenario, some unrest which will be much less extreme than the 60s-70s far left unrest. Best case scenario, this will all be forgotten in a few months.

    Their platform is to destroy the institutions that run the country. They have no plan after that. But I imagine if allowed they’d replace those institutions with people who believe 3rd grade level ideals. Or maybe a fully socialistic idea.

    I'd say one doesn't have to be a supporter of the president but only against what Biden is and what he stands for...

    I agree, just like the Right will never let go of or forget the rioting, looting and violence perpetrated by Left leaning protestors and how Left leaning politicians glossed it over, condoned it and in some cases encouraged it. The fact is that too many of the divides between Left and Right have simply grown too engrained and calcified to fill in. There are some very fundamental differences in how they view their country, their society and their freedoms.

    Issues of gender
    Issues of education
    Issues of personal freedoms in regards to interpretations of 1A and 2A
    Issues of religion and or religious freedoms
    Issues of fetal life
    Issues of parental rights
    Etc.

    With both sides characterizing each other as racists, fascists, destroyers of Democracy, etc. There is very real hate that has been generated and is still brewing and growing on both sides of the societal fence. This will become much more an issue on the Right as they find themselves hedged in more and more by society, government, media, educational institutes. In many ways, the Right is having their Native American moment. They're finding their "lands" overrun and their reservations getting smaller and smaller.
