A few things. . .

Let's start from ON TYRANNY.
"What is patriotism?
Let us begin with what patriotism is not.
It is not patriotic to dodge the draft and to mock war heroes and their families.
It is not patriotic to discriminate against active-duty members of the armed forces.
In one's companies, or to campaign to keep disabled veterans away from one's property.
It is not patriotic to compare one’s search for sexual partners in New York.
With the military service in Vietnam that one has dodged.
It is not patriotic to avoid paying taxes, especially when American working families do pay.
It is not patriotic to ask those working, taxpaying American families.
To finance one’s own presidential campaign, and then to spend their contributions in one's own companies.
It is not patriotic to admire foreign dictators.
It is not patriotic to cultivate a relationship with Vladimir Putin.
It is not patriotic to call upon Russia to intervene in an American presidential election.
It is not patriotic to cite Russian propaganda at rallies.
It is not patriotic to share an adviser with Russian oligarchs.
It is not patriotic to solicit foreign policy advice.
From someone who owns shares in a Russian energy company.
It is not patriotic to read a foreign policy speech written by someone.
On the payroll of a Russian energy company.
It is not patriotic to appoint a national security adviser.
Who has taken money from a Russian propaganda organ.
It is not patriotic to appoint as secretary of state.
An oilman with Russian financial interests who is the director of a Russian-American energy company.
And has received the “Order of Friendship” from Putin.
The point is not that Russia and America must be enemies.
The point is that patriotism involves serving your own country.
― Timothy Snyder, On Tyranny

I wrote that some health insurance might deny paying for Chris David hand surgery.
If he had not gone to those protest in Portland, he would not suffer the beating by that runt.

A federal agent's hand was impaled by planted nails, another federal agent was shot with a pellet gun.
Leaving a wound deep to the bone, and tragically, three federal officers.
Were likely left permanently blinded by the rioters using lasers pointed directly into their eyes.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters Friday.

Same here if they had not gone to Portland they would not been injured.


Why and how did America get to this state?

@Mo Mo

trump's America, making hate normal and Americans hate each other.

There is no doctrine called extremism.
When tyrants speak of extremists, they just mean people.
Who are not in the mainstream - as the tyrants themselves.
Are defining that mainstream at that particular moment.
Dissidents of the twentieth century.
Whether they were resisting fascism or communism, were called extremists.
Modern authoritarian regimes, such as Russia, use laws on extremism.
To punish those who criticize their policies.
In this way the notion of extremism.
Comes to mean virtually everything except what is, in fact, extreme: tyranny.
― Timothy Snyder, On Tyranny

"Believe in truth.
To abandon facts is to abandon freedom.
If nothing is true, then no one can criticize power, because there is no basis upon which to do so.
If nothing is true, then all is spectacle.
The biggest wallet pays for the most blinding lights."
― Timothy Snyder, On Tyranny

"When military and the police intermingle the end has come."
― Timothy Snyder, On Tyranny

"Post-truth is pre-fascism."
― Timothy Snyder, On Tyranny

Anticipatory Obedience
That decide the next step towards an autocrat.
This anticipatory obedience has taught 'Tiny Donnie'.
What is possible.

'Tiny Donnie' hates President Obama with a great hating.

From my dear friend 'Yoli'.
I Just Realized Something:
My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day.
He has his food prepared for him.
His meals are provided at no cost to him.
He visits the Dr. once a year for his checkup and again during the year, if any medical needs arise.
For this he pays nothing, and nothing is required of him.
He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than he needs, but he is not required to do any upkeep.
If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up.
He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep.
He receives these accommodations absolutely free.
He is living like a king and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever.
All of his costs are picked up by others who earn a living.
I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a ton of bricks ~
MY dog is a CONGRESSMAN!!!

Lest we forget.

'Tiny Donnie' mocking a disabled reporter in 2016.

Tell me who you walk with, and I'll tell you who you are.

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Diabetes II or Diabetes 2
Affect a few.
What's a body to do?
Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.

Ricardo in virtual reality.
Virtual reality.
Is the term used to describe a three-dimensional.
Computer generated environment.
