Don't blow my top over anything anymore. The way some of these people react, it likely someone will put Trump into a danger.
Liberals are the only ones smart enough to realise that protest is the only weapon available to stop a tyrant so you can save all your baby a$$wipes for yourself. But the protests will rage on and there will be no calm on the political front for the rightwinger. Got you sitting on eggshells all of the time? Yet, this is just the beginning.....
"Got you sitting on eggshells all of the time?"
Actually, yes. Will it be my car that is burned next time? Will I be caught in the next riot and injured/killed? Will the road be blocked when the ambulance tries to get to my home in an emergency? Eggshells is a good word for it.
Far more subtle than that, Wilderness. How long will the "Exalted One" tolerate a free press and assembly as it brings negative attention to his agenda? It begins with press muzzling and moves toward censorship. Next will be roundups and the gulag for anyone that may have a word of disparity to share about 'His Fullness'.
Peaceful or not, Trump will not tolerate dissent at any level, and will search for methods legal, or extra-legal to staunch the flow. Being the narcissistic clown that he is, watch and see that I am correct in this assessment.
Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with all Americans during their terrible ordeal of being alive.
On a less cutting note:
Using the vast power of the state to crush all dissent and the power of the courts to jail millions can only ever be a short term solution to problems of inequality, poverty, racism and the general malaise of a society dedicated purely to materialism.
Quite frankly ,I believe the right is probably more prepared and primed for the next phase of America's uprisings . Especially if the left gets even more violent . But prepared though , it won't be nice .
No one is sitting on egg shells. I, for one, am simply shaking my head at the selfish arrogance of the left.
Its almost like something bad is going to happen if everyone doesnt give in to liberal demands. Its really frustrating to me because they dont seem to have any explicit or coherent demands.
I notice the right media picks out young kids often and ask them questions. Where if you ask left minded people here online, you will get a much better reply.
To me Onesidedness is not smart. When your fighting , then bankers are laughing away wail stealing your money, and things are going to their plan, excellent. Mmoo ha ha mmooo a ha
I see the primary demand as ensuring we all see their overpowering hatred of all things conservative.
Along with the inevitable and gratuitous warning of you haven't seen nothing yet
LOL. And, I'm sure they fantasize about everyone shaking in their boots. That's OK though. They are simply the flip side of the coin. It wasn't too long ago I had to listen to tea partyers giving dire warnings that the revolution was at hand.
Nobody is talking about Revolution, but we have to give the Tea Party credit where it is due. They may have had a large role in the losses suffered by the Dems during the 2010 midterms. So, we've got 2018 coming up and change can be affected without revolutionary fervor.
I would prefer revolutionary fervor to the childish tantrums we are observing from the left at the moment.
Never heard anybody as deep into Revolution as Steve Bannon.
To be honest I'm a believer that we are nearing a time for revolution. Our government ceased to be of the people, by the people and for the people quite some time ago.
Steve promised not to kill much more than 2nd world war. That is a ball park my vison 150 million. Enough to leave town.
Where is the thought police on him, when you need one.
I don't really know who Steve Bannon is so I can't comment on what he may have said. I will say that one reason we haven't moved to revolution is because of big mouths on the left and right who make those of us in the middle who are fed up with the way this country has been taken over by big corporations leery of jumping on any bandwagon.
I prefer the current approach as it get the changes we are looking for without upsetting the apple cart of government based upon rule by law. You can call protests tantrums if you like, I call it freedom of assembly and speech.
When you pay people to protest it isn't the same. Never was.
Now, that is silly, over 3-4 million women and supporters march from across the globe and you really believe that they were all paid? Remember 1/21? Rightwing propaganda at its finest.....
I don't think they are all paid. But, the less than savory behavior at the protests is largely due to paid to protest participants.Or so it appears.
I'm sorry Credence. I just think the left had 8 years to get it right. They didn't. To act this way without giving the guy a chance is sadly lacking in maturity.
You think he paid off 4.2 million people in 600 cities, because Trump is such a nice guy.
Is Trump a Spartan in 300?
Obama gave everyone free phones. Trump needs to take them away and ground them. Democrats need to go clean their rooms. Philosophically.
Oh I remember tea parties and even tough talk from conservatives. I just dont remember any of them setting cars on fire.
We have got a few bad apples but that does not reflect the whole bunch. The scientist and acedemic community marches and that planned for First Nations will hardly be a riot, but with good press coverage we can put the negative focus on Trump Regime policy, all the same
I guess you all can blame that 'liberal press'?
My problem is with reactionaries, which is what Trump and his followers are, not classic conservative in that sense.
You may be right. They are reacting to the gross mishandling of government over the past couple of decades. And just as you say, neither Trump nor his followers are classic conservatives.
We can agree of something!
Only problem is learning to discern the difference in the 'Trump Approach' and those of the mainstream GOP, he is either 'in like Flynn' with their royalty, or has folded up like a lawn chair before them and their policies. Much like trying the tell the difference pepper and rat droppings?
If something 'bad' is considered more protest (peaceful), then I guess more 'bad' is coming.
First Nations consisting of 300 tribes will be visiting Washington between 3/6 and 10, and they are not coming for tea. More great fun, yes?
Don't you get a little tired of having to continually insert that "peaceful" all the time, and then explain that rioters don't count because they aren't part of the movement?
I know I would...eventually I'd get so sick of seeing the violence every time there is a major "peaceful" protest I'd just give up on it.
Well maybe it's the right-winger nonsense-spinners who can't stand the heat of competition argument. I mean, dropping down to a score of 50 and unpublishing? What sort of metal is that?
Could it be something to do with dual identity? When people claim to have a christian basis to their life, yet then treat others who are less fortunate in material terms as underdogs; and use all manner of questionable business tactics to make a quick buck.... Being called a liberal is therefore not so shameful by comparison....IMHO.
Pardon me for being so bold. You claim the freedom to paint all "liberals" as a group that can be disparaged. You apply a label, as though nothing any liberal ever says can be taken as legitimate.
Is this simply to stir up argument and controversy? Can't you get away from your incessant beating up of "leftists," and intelligently consider each and every point of disagreement, without resorting to political labelling? I purposely painted a picture of the "right wing," so as to show you what prejudice looks like. I hope it registered with you; if not, then go your own way.
Each and every person in a fair and supportive democracy is free to put in his/her point of view. If the democratic society has any wisdom at all, it will listen to those differing points of view and glean, over time, what is most useful and edifying for the society at large. "Universal" health services which are made available to the less fortunate of our society, can be a great benefit to everyone. Granted there will be some who abuse the system and some of those will be relatively well off financially...not just the financial poor. In fact if you have ever had to do business with the wealthy, you will know there can be a long wait before you get paid. Those living humbly are more likely to pay up-front.
So, to address the title of this thread, I feel you need to see people more as people instead of tarring people with particular black/white/rainbow colours. I promise to try and do the same.
Maybe if you wrote liberal poetry youd get a higher score.
Where art thou fair hillary,
In woods oer yonder.
Looking for artillery?
Or bills clothes to launder.
Yep. You nailed us. We are all exactly the same. No differences among us at all. Paint us with the same stroke. Lump us together. Slap that liberal label on us and be done with it. You are exactly right about us. No question. No room for debate. Period. Done. Over and Out.
As to hub score , I was at a 98 or 99 years ago ,You should have been around when it meant something to have a 100 and be thus sharing with real artists , Nothing changed of my contributions in my hubs BUT the scoring by Hub-page staff , maybe they don't like conservative opinions too, ! I haven't contributed anything new for a couple of reasons , one , true artistry on hub-pages is only recognized by how many varieties of brownie recopies you Hub , Hub pages is no longer supportive of any artistic content . Personally I believe hub-pages is changing and not for the better ,As to painting those of the new left the same colors - in political forums - If you act the same - I will so paint you the same .
Here , maybe this helps , general acceptability of conservative opinions .
And If I offend your political sensibilities ;
" I just think the left had 8 years to get it right. They didn't."
LtoL: Don't know how you define right. They saved the economy, reduced our involvement in two wars that had gone on for a decade with the smallest military since before WWII, brought health insurance to millions of people, reduced unemployment from historically high levels, and created millions of jobs. After one of the worst presidencies in history, how much do think can get done in only 8 years?
Even LESS than you are LEAD to believe obviously !
No. They did not save the economy. I am confused as to how anyone could arrive at that conclusion.
They did not reduce our involvement. As far as I'm concerned we have more involvement, or definitely not less, in the Middle East than we had when he took office.
They did not bring health insurance to millions of people. I pay and get nothing in return. I pay so that I won't be fined. What they did was have an orgy of pork barrel spending in order to agree on a bill that lined the pockets of the insurance companies at the expense of the American people. Anyone who thinks we got our money's worth out of that one is a dreamer.
And, my opinions on Obama's presidency are the culmination of watching eight years of ineffective leadership. Exactly how long has the left been able to observe Trump's leadership in order to come up with their conclusions? I don't think they bothered to observe anything. They came to the table with their minds firmly made up and their feet dug deep in the sand.
They have not reduced unemployment. If you buy into the government's figures then that is your choice. Millions of jobs may have been created. I don't know that I would credit that to the government. I do notice that many, many part time jjobs are now there where full time employment was the norm.
You can chalk Bush up to one of the worst presidencies in history. I wouldn't argue that he was an ineffective commander in chief. I simply wouldn't define Obama as an effective one. We are more polarized as a nation than we have ever been. I will credit him with that.

I want everyone to remember that when Obama took office with a far left agenda there were no riots. No state talked secession. It was a disappointment to the right but they didn't act like this.I find the behavior of the left anti democratic, and anti freedom. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Why do we have to respect the Flag to be Patriots?Our flag is merely a piece of cloth. Some though, seem to endow it with certain patriotic powers, as if it held the country together with its stars and stripes. Few however, ever stop to think of the atrocities enacted beneath its folds in the name...
