People don’t even use their 5 senses anymore. This demonstration was quite tame. Watch the videos. Always go to primary sources. 

We lost Mags and gained Dazey.    Worst trade in history.

I guarantee you neither are the richest man in the world. That richest man would never allow plebs to know his business. 

People like the Aga Khan have so much more money and power that very little of the world knows or understands, especially when only looking at "traditional" wealth ....the Niarchos family is in the same category

Dance, my puppets! Dance!

 

It’s crazy how humans can be manipulated so easily. What I find most insane is how critical thinking can be bypassed like it’s nothing.

 

Very interesting times to be alive.

 

I think because the two political sides are so binary, they deal in absolutes right? Trump is fully right, Pelosi is right - that inspires other binary thinkers. And the half wits in the media love it because that’s an easy story. It’s clear and it has a story arch. Critical thinking is too complicated to control. That actually is what they do. Think about it, you want votes, I want to target people who have a certain or guaranteed opinion. People who are religious or are social justice warriors are not changing their minds. So in a way, people who don’t vote are indicative of the problem. How do I even get out of bed in the morning! I’ll die and nobody will know I figured it all out.

It seems that tribal mentality trumps (lol) critical thinking.

 

We’re just dumb apes with smartphones.

Because then he's a martyr. If they strike him down he shall become more powerful than could ever imagine.


But aren't they making a martyr of him as it is, dragging this out, and basically making this a prolonged political execution? It has to be clear to your average person - not your Trump supporter or Liberal, but your average Joe American - that he has been raked over the coals and continues to be. It has to be clear as day that they have become unhinged and relentless and that since even before his Presidency began, they've been trying to destroy him.

I like to think that your average American has enough sense to see that, and to feel bad in some ways for the man. I do not agree with him on all things; I do think he is in many ways the author of his own misfortunes - But no other political figure in American history, save perhaps for Abraham Lincoln, has been treated with as much disrespect and contempt or as unfairly from the very outset of their term.

That would be horrible and would totally break the country.  But if they do take him out I just hope they pin it on Downzy.   His walls probably resemble Ray Finkle's room except Trump is his Marino.  

Whilst I disagree with your point I do at least give you props for the Ace Ventura reference.

I'm starting to think that Dems don't know what unity means

 

They hate you. Unity means nothing to them. It's a bullshit bit of sloganeering to allow themselves to look morally superior as always, while at the same time they are openly purging you from existence just short of shooting you dead. You are scum to them and they justify it because orange man bad.

It has been for our entire lifetimes.  Now they no longer feel the need to hide it, cause they're too powerful to ever fail and the American public is too horse-ass stupid to wipe their own butts.

There was a symbiotic relationship. Chimerica.

 

But now the US is turning into China in terms of controlling speech and surveillance.
