Stuff making the rounds at The Other Place trying to convince people NOT to go to Tulsa next week to protest shithead's redneck rally.  This thing is no doubt a brainchild of that wannabe nazi Stephen Miller and there's little doubt that there will be right-wing provocateurs there to insure that any peaceful demonstration is turned into a brutal shitshow. Nothing would energize shithead's racist base more than images of disorder and looting - because they know that only their hero can stop it.

.. Biden has a plan
 

Trump has already toasted all those who were halfway competent and has a habit of firing everyone after a short stint.. (he only seems to feel comfortable in a disruptive environment, probably cos then everyone is drawn down to his level). So we can expect this pattern to continue, or even get worse. If you like drama and chaos, he's your man. 

Biden is by no means a first choice, but at least he can hold a team of half-way competent people together.

I will then infer that you are okay with this kind of behaviour and have no problem with your neighborhood being taken over by activists.

So yeah, a dodge.
 
No, it is not. 

This is the conclusion of the  post to which you responded “yep”, with the bold facing provided by you:

This is America's future if Donald Trump doesn't win in November.

I replied that I would take my chances — i.e., I rejected the notion that only the re-election of Trump would prevent Antifa takeovers of our cities. In my response to your further questions, I went broader: I reject the notion that the re-election of Trump is the only way we can avoid chaos and financial ruin in this country.

You now seem to have divorced your questions from the original statement that only the re-election of Trump will prevent Antifa takeovers of our cities. That is the statement to which I was responding. I will take my chances because I firmly believe the harm 4 more years of Trump will cause this country will far outweigh any harm that may occur because he no longer holds that office.

By the way, I am curious about your responses to the myriad questions I posed in my last response to you regarding the existence of a Deep State.

I will take my chances that Trump not being President will result in chaos and financial ruin throughout the country. In sum, I reject the notion that Trump is the only one who can fix (insert problem here).

Border walls.  Imagine that.

Probably a different purpose in mind, or they aren't anarchists.

Nobody would mind the idea of a wall if it included working doors, but then you wouldn't need a wall, would you?
 

I imagine that those who have businesses, jobs, or even homes inside these compounds are completely fine with having a new set of walls -with or without doors - keeping the undesirables out.  And of course the decision to construct these walls and barriers was first approved by all the people affected ...

A day of reckoning is coming, I think.  Multiple days, actually.  First the anarchists will be dealt with, one way or another.  Then the politicians.
