Hitler had brownshirts. Trump has twitter followers. The reality is identical. This is fascism, pure and simple, playing out before your eyes What do you expect, history has a tendency to repeat itself. In the future this particular version of Fascism will probably be called "Trumpism" (FYI, German...

Re: sums up the past few months, nicely

A bit late for protesting... In response to Trump's victory, a shocking win fueled by the rural roar of a dismayed white America, tens of thousands in at least 25 US cities -- including New York and Nashville, Chicago and Cleveland, San Francisco and Seattle -- shouted anti-Trump slogans, started fi...

Re: Gun Bans work

Easily and legally when you pay your dues is pretty vague.

Vague on purpose since the skill levels are on a sliding scale from 0 to 100 as is the red tape -...

Oh, and Grendel, I don't see where Clinton fundamentally got much wrong on the core point. Disagreement with the details of the ruling doesn't mean one is opposed to gun ownership, just a difference on where one draws the lines.
