    I'm sure there was some context and nuance to it than that, or maybe at least there was in my mind. I'm not an open carry advocate.

    The most surprising thing for me in all of this is that El Trumpo knows how to spell and use the word provocateur. Who knew?!

    Here's an interesting tidbit...

    Trump's "communications capture" conspiracy theory came via One America News Network, which employs a "reporter" who also works for Sputnik, the Kremlin-operated news service that had to register as a foreign agent after the Russia investigation!

    Wat?! Is he now living in a separate dimension?

    EDIT: I wanted to write a long rambling post on Anglo Saxon Common Sense vs Euro Rationality, but Trump's defeated me. I just can't.

    I love capitalism. Nothing scares people in a free market society more than being told they might be "defunded". I know, I've been told that once or twice. Watch how the rats scatter, and the heroes come forward. It's happened before you know. There's nothing new under the sun.

    Being "police" is an honor, not a right. So if the honor is lacking, say sayonara to your special police privileges. It's that simple to me, at least.

    What I didn't realise is that Kristian Brunovich Rouz actually did the OAN piece about Martin Gugino staging a "false flag" operation by cracking his own skull against the pavement.

    Trump is literally getting his talking points from a former Kremlin employee.

    I said this before, but I find it funny that a big part of the problem with police abuses are the unions (which fight to keep many, many bad officers on force), and in the US the biggest of all is the FOP (Fraternal Order of Police).

    So in a way you have something similar to the Freemasons, another kind of fraternity, but with guns, dogs, and cages and a long history of violence. It really makes you wonder how the founding fathers of America would view the current use of police force around the country. I'm of the opinion they'd already have begun planning Revolution 2.0, because that's just what happened during 1.0. Soldiers in the street shoving and shooting people, eventually people just get fed up, organize, and start shooting back (and worse, throwing out perfectly good tea). :)

    Here's a good article on how the FOP is starting to recognize the need for top-down leadership on this issue, because a large number of FOP lodges are stirring up anti-protest and pro-aggression sentiments, and that has to stop.

    Police union says don't 'protect bad cops' amid calls for reform

    Stay safe out there.
