This is a pretty good description of the Trump years.

There's no need to even read that. The retardation displayed in the last couple of weeks by our handful of resident Trump fluffers is a good description of Trump and his administration.

"It almost happened here" - says the guy who is:

-free to talk shit about Trump whenever he wants without consequence,

-a reader of articles published from a virulently anti-Trump press,

-represented by an anti-Trump congressman whose anti-Trump party controls the lower legislature,

-filled with glee every time Trump loses a case in the judiciary,

-a recent voter in a regularly-scheduled election that is likely to unseat Trump from office.

Yeah we really were on the verge of a fascist dictatorship for a second there. Lol

Rugian, are you disappointed that you may have to return your brownshirt?

Are you disappointed that Mitch holding the Senate means you have to wait to unfurl your red flag?

The current debacle is playing out like the beerhall putsch. So early days Ruggy.

I note that you did not list "losing election" as one of the differences. How odd.

That is just proforma. Unless you are hoping for a coup.

You mean like these guys?

But no, I am not hoping for a "coup." That being said, there are still lawsuits pending, so until the EC actually votes one must engage in equivocations.

The problem is polarization, not any one candidate. If Trump and his supporters were one of 5 or 6 major parties vying for leadership, we would not care nearly as much. Even if they ended up winning.

Still could. His replacing of DoD senior staff with loyalists is disconcerting.

It is rather. The chain of command does not run through joint chiefs, it runs by way of the defence secretary and fragments from there to various commands.

the only meaningful dissenters from deep state spokesman and their journalistic stenographers.. are people like snowden assange and manning who are either imprisoned and tortured in history's greatest gulag system [biden boasts that it is democrats who created this] or forced to flee and hide for their lives

americas primary racist xenophobia is against russians.. and after 6 years of "the 1980s called and want their fp back".. resurfaces with biden overseeing nuland and pyatt in ukraine.. now watch under trump lunatics on msnbc present classic conspiracy theory russians are behind *everything* and mention nefarious "russians" literally about every 10 seconds during broadcasts.. that russophobia is used by deep state and cheering journalists to promote censorship of countervailing narratives or authentic facts [see hunter biden influence peddling for latest example].. btw its nazis who hate russians

far from being hitler figure in foreign aggression.. trump starts 0 new wars and is so opposed and blocked by deep state that earthpig is disconcerted that president might halve troops in afghanistan and iraq.. bush hillary obama and biden are the ones who like starting new wars based on lies.. obama not even consulting congress with the big lie that bombing a new country [having nothing to do with the fight against al qaeda - whose side he takes in syria btw] does not constitute "hostilities"..



in summary.. democrats and deep state and antitrump republicans are responsible for creating most imprisoned unfree warmongering russophobic country since adolf hitler [if not moreso]

Pretty sure I was highly critical of Obama's expanded drone wars at the time, for the record.

Anyways, my sincerest hope is that Trump is just putting loyalists in so he can gain access to classified information that he can later use for his own economic benefit once he is back in the private sector. That would be amazing and awesome.

There are less optimistic reasons why he'd want to gut-and-replace all the senior military and intelligence leaders a couple months before he is *supposed* to hand power over. I'll let you fill in the blanks here.

Like I said. Hopefully, it's merely attempting to gain access to classified information for his personal use as a reality TV entrepreneur. That would be great. I'll take it and call it a win.

Earthpig, While your here, I had an oven that the board took a shit. I could just replace the board, but I really want to replace it with a raspberry PI, even if costs more, any suggested info/sites?

Ovens should not have circuit boards. They should be ovens. Better set the whole house on fire just to be safe.
