Re: I had to come check on you............

So True, Trump and his congressional co hearts did indeed treat small businesses, middle businesses and sole entrepreneurs like step children by giving all the breaks to the very most high capital businesses. I agree with you, but I doubt that's what you meant.

Re: I had to come check on you............

The summer BLM riots where small businesses burned to the ground, I no where near label everyone at the George Floyd march a terrorist" most at the 2:00pm marches were just stupid and naive  people that knew to go home when it got dark and the looting started. 

The Trump rally that ended with a HANDFUL storming the Capitol was a reverse case in which the few stupid and naive ones did the damage.   There`s reports of Capitol guards letting the protestors in the building and taking selfies with them.  I`m sure there could be a few innocent people that saw it was okay with the guards and followed the herd in and now will be looking at 10 years in the pokey and on the "do not fly list" just because they followed a security guard smiling and waving them across the threshold.

But to go ape sh-t about this when 2 sh-ts weren`t given last summer at those more deadly riots, solely based on "skin colour" is ridiculous.

Jenny - To be fair, some of them were plain old Trump supporters who were indeed protesting. Those folks went home or to their hotel after the rally, but about 3,000 of them were an amalgam of Q Anon, Proud Boys, wanna be military, insurrectionists, murderers, second amendment nuts, and people who fancy themselves as 1776 patriots - All not giving a hoot about the laws of this nation. Scores of them meant to overtake the government and kill a lot of people. Some were just dumb enough to think they could overtake the Capitol and make Trump king for life. We shall hear their stories when the trials begin.

Don't be like some of the fools here who paint them all as the same. Every time rioting occurs, it is a minority of the people.

You want to post those numbers Hypoknap? What you just did was to point out the failure of socialism. It is always a transfer of money from the poor to the rich.

What happened at the Capitol was something more than 'rioting'

But it was nothing when compared the BLM riots of the past seven months.

I really doubt if any of the Capitol rioters knew what they were getting into, is anyone really so stupid they think they can knock down guards, break windows in a federal building, put your feet up on Nancy Pelosi`s desk and not be in one hell of a lot of trouble?  BLM gets away with it, they tear a statue down and the city council votes that "it needed tore down anyway" that doesn`t make it right.   But those rioters sure didn`t do president Trump any favors.

BA, so you are saying those insurrectionists who came equipped with gas masks, mace, pipes and baseball bats, climbing gear, restraints etc. were just too stupid to realize that following your dear leader was going to get them in trouble.

If you really believe that I have some great corn growing land to sell you just outside Tuktoyaktuk.

Re: I had to come check on you............

Where did Trump tell anyone to "takeover the Capitol"...let alone the specific things you added about pipe bombs and handcuffs? 

Ever see the old James Bond movie Goldfinger where the plot was for hot women in single engine planes to fly over Fort Knox spray the guards with nerve gas and set off a nuke to make the nation`s gold supply to be radioactive for 1,000 years?   That`s farfetched just like 90 clowns taking over the US Capitol in a nation of 330 million people people where too many if not most were stupid enough to vote for and support Biden.  According to my math if only half the Biden supporters mobilized they would out number the 90 clowns about 1 million to 1.   Not good odds.

Aside from the hideous false equivalence, it might be worth mentioning the levels of public support within our democracy for the separate “causes” that are being subjected to it.
