"Chinese Fly deaths ..." Spanish Fly was even more deadly.
Un-willowed rant: "punish the whole country unnecessarily for the sake of the blue hells" This and statewide school closings and other broad unfocused mandates are IMO based on motive and justification ... Motives: Deep state gets to select crony corporate survivors and cull the herd of competition from capitalism. Take credit for eventual recovery. Create dependency on the deep state and punish the country "for not voting the right way". Justification: Equityism ... such that unpeople and their spawn in flyover country shan't thrive while goodfolk in Utopian Hives whither in protective custody. Motives unspoken while euphemistic justifications seem perfectly reasonable to the left, their fellow travelers, and unfortunately far to many of the GOPe.

Seems like there will be some excellent "exposure" as the dims cheat them out of the nomination.

"I would rather try to rally hearts and minds to fight off thugs trying to "Occupy" us [sooner] than later ..." [edited for clarity] My preference would delay or prevent violence because Trump and supporters are gaining strength faster than Bern thugs. Trump is changing the battleground in our favor. Besides, better that thugs expose themselves sooner over losing the nomination than later in the general. YMMV

"so risky to go with Bernie" IMO having Bern as the dim nominee greatly increases the likelihood of serious political violence. Too soon for violence, anybody but him.

Ig, I think that's what you might call an inference. Doomy said "I could teach anybody, anybody, even some people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer." Lacks explicit context IMO.
"doesn't mean you have to act as dishonorably as them" Well there is no "honorable" requirement to infer or create context that wasn't in Doomberg's original statement. His statement drew no distinction between farming over the last 3000 years and now. So yeah, maybe he should have, and maybe you can infer it, but others are not honor bound to do so.
I think MJW's last question on the last thread is an interesting one:DOJ simply folded, almost certainly because the odds of getting a conviction did not justify the effort. ... Suppose a liberal politician and a conservative politician committed the same offense in Washington DC. Conventional wisdom says a DC jury is considerably more likely to convict the conservative -- and I think conventional wisdom is correct. Does that mean the conservative should be charged, but not the liberal?Great example of Disparate Impact people. Seems like prima facie justification for any politically tainted trials to be held elsewhere.

Also, in this case "the law" is mostly administered by the deep state and the deep state considers lies that damage the deep state as criminal but lies that protect the deep state as honorable.

"It was the first time I really considered that Trump could ask for and people would respond to pitchforks and rope" Yes, as I called it years ago, Trump could call spirits from the vasty deep and release the Kraken. It's why they keep trying to drive some kind of wedge between Trump and his supporters and why they hate and fear us and him. IMO it is against our interest to give them the impression we would submit rather than fight.
"It was people with a clear sense of where they wanted us to go, working they way through, regardless of who was in power, and taking over inch by inch by inch. That's what saving the Republic will take" People who wanted to control the lives of others infiltrated the cultural, educational, and government institutions, claiming moral imperatives for cover while believing things they dare not admit. Once an institution has a comfortable controlling majority tolerance for different opinions disappears and those willing to express them are driven away. I'm afraid our side can't take it back the same way. So what then ...
"there’s a hell of a lot of work that should be done first, before we resort to our weapons" I have not seen anyone here advocate resorting to weapons first. So "who should we shoot and then do what?" seems like a straw dummy to me. If it starts it will be a submit, die, or fight back situation.
... just as insulting and say "The clouds are lifting, we are winning, but people alarm themselves by magnifying the success of their political opponents and minimizing the importance of the strides their side has made" Well to be comparable I think it should be written thus:The clouds are lifting, we are winning, but people alarm themselves by focusing on violence from the left by antifa and others at rallies, protests and the ever increasing leftist hysteria at every important gain in economy and foreign policy"Because that's what is obvious under discussion.
Or another theory ... Just as dimorat leaders (used to) get away with sexual misconduct where GOP could not because GOP voters were prudes about sex ... ... dimorat thinking goes GOP voters have always been hostile toward Russia will not tolerate Trump getting help from them. So making Russia the boogyman is to separate Trump from his supporters.

"suddenly became so fearful of Russia" Not fearful, they're afraid their former ally has turned against them and is helping their true enemy ... us.

"So now I am a troll?" Another straw dummy. Trolls got more push back than you but getting push back doesn't make anyone a troll.
