    I don't think you can vote a dictator out of office, and these days I'm pretty sure that will happen with Trump in just a few months.

    I can remember when such talk was the province of far-right crazies. Either you owe them an apology or you’re being disingenuous.

    I just saw a video clip of that, it appears the tear gas was used to disperse a crowd surrounding him chanting "Quit your job, quit your job" while a few others threw rocks at him.

    You have to admire his ability to stay on point as he continued to appease the crowd who were upset that Federal Police were actually protecting federal property.

    That's an interesting point, I read today they they're using unmarked cars because they discovered marked cars immediately became targets on the street. That and the fact that most media refuses to acknowledge it or the patches on their uniforms seems like a version of clickbait to me. Whatever works I guess.

    I also don't understand the claim that "random" people are being grabbed off the street rather than "targeted" people. Where's the value in that other than to inflame the easily inflamed? It doesn't make sense.

    Kidnapping people off the street and detaining them wit no charges is what Hitler did.

    Dictatorships only work in Socialist or their parent Communist countries. Thank goodness we're not there yet.
