Morehead City, NC

July 14, 2020

TO THE EDITOR:

This letter is addressed to the young man who has made the choice to picket our house over the past two weeks. Yes, our house has the lone Biden campaign signs on Arendell St. As I told my middle school students over a thirty-year career; (not elitism – not subversion - just math), life is a series of choices. My question to you is to what end does your choice to parade a tattered Trump flag in front of our house champion the re-election of your candidate? Clearly, you are not changing our votes. It is unlikely that the Democratic Party’s candidate will carry this county in the general election, so we are not intimidated nor impressed by the extra beeps.

Are your actions helping to persuade needed independents or democrats to swing their votes to re-elect your candidate? Would not your energies be better spent participating in our electoral process? Could you volunteer your time at the Republican Party headquarters to stuff mailers, make phone calls, or assist individuals in registering to vote? You can actively participate in these activities to support your candidate. Unfortunately, we cannot. The Covid virus and our at-risk ages limit our choices to support our candidate through signage on our property.

To our dismay, the virus has curtailed our volunteering in the Morehead City community. We miss going to the Leon Mann Center to deliver hot meals to senior shut-ins. We pray they stay healthy and safe. Last week, as you were posted on the sidewalk, we received a phone call from our son in South Carolina. He is a biomedical technician for a rural hospital in a community the size of New Bern. He fixes the medical equipment. He had just finished a shift where he geared up in the “moon suit” to repair monitors in rooms with active Covid patients. He was on the way home to his family - his wife, and our grandchildren! We pray that they continue to stay healthy and safe.

To our family, this virus is real. Last month, his hospital had no cases of Covid; in four short weeks, their beds are full. We choose to protect our health care workers in the Morehead City community by sheltering in place, wearing masks, and practicing good hygiene as public health officials advise. We believe this is the pathway to economic recovery and opening schools safely. We choose to spread kindness in Carteret County, and I will continue to make masks to help protect our community, freely available in our front yard. As three generations of my family fought to protect your choices, please respect ours. We choose to support the candidate we believe has a plan to restore the health, heart, and soul to this nation. Unfortunately, it’s not the current occupant of the White House.

If that’s all he’s doing, consider yourself lucky. Apparently the other way around brings violence. In 2016 a “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” hat could bring all sorts of “nastys”. Oh yeah then the dems would Follow trumps cabinet members to dinner and create chaos. You are the party of tolerance as long as everyone agrees with you...if not then it’s name calling, violence, labeling....I ask you lady... how many strangers have YOU taken to YOUR doctor and paid for complete medical care? How many strangers are walking around with cell phones that YOU have attached to YOUR plan. How many homeless strangers do YOU have laying around YOUR house out of the elements.

"We choose to support the candidate we believe has a plan to restore the health, heart, and soul to this nation." That person isn't Joe Biden. The guy is being used as a puppet by hard-core Marxist individuals who wish to take this nation down the path of communism. He's being kept on a short leash, as when he's out in public he tends to make many bizarre statements such the one below:

"I got hairy legs that turned ... blonde in the sun. And the kids used to come up and reach into the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and watch the hair come back up again"

Joe Biden should be living in assisted living, not running for president.

Good one

David Collins

I for one do respect anyone’s choice for anything . Do not have to like or agree but must respect your effort to be counted . It’s supposed to be the American way .

So you have some zealot showing his or her hind parts in front of your home . Just for kicks and grins , try offering a cool drink and a sweet treat . You never know .

The world is not all warm , fuzzy and welcoming . Dog eats dog is the nature of some things . Lots of things . Having a President that knows this and is not timid about standing up for our country is not necessarily a bad thing . No one said things would not get ugly at times and folks would not be divided on the issues . All that can be a good thing , showing that we can agree to disagree and not kill each other . For the most part , that is . There are those foreign and domestic that strive to do just that and hopefully will be dealt with quickly and harshly . That takes rule of law and toughness for the anarchists have no rules of engagement and respect no one or nothing .

Amen Mr. COLLINS

Everyone has a choice who to vote for in any election. I am a Trump fan but with saying that leave the woman alone she can vote for whoever and when ever she chooses she has the same rights the trump fan does. Stop parading around with a tattered Trump sign. What is the reason behind it. You won’t change her vote but you do cancel out hers wouldn’t be more feasible to get others who haven’t made up their minds who they are voting for in election. Trump isn’t about harassing ppl.

Bear26Actual

Thats right. At least she is decent and not beating in someone and spitting in their food or destroying other peoples property like a lot of them do.

Rusty Scupper

Sadly, Ms. Nelson you have asked a young man to stop holding a Trump flag in front of your house with a lot of additional words in your letter to the editor which shows perhaps your true intentions to “hoist your flag” about the great things you have done for our community. So I ask you: which is it? Are you upset with the young man or do you want to talk about yourself. You can be glad to publish in this newspaper that doesn’t edit your letter due to space limitations or mandatory word counts.

Speaking of the young man who is in front of your house in some of the worst heat thus far, it may be safe to say he knows full well the prominence of your house on the busiest street in MHC. He has every right to be there, and I have seen him. He isn’t taking down your sign, walking through your yard, or making gestures towards your windows.

As far as all of your contributions to the area, as well as those in your family, I thank you. These are stressful times for all.

mpjeep

Consider yourself lucky, Mrs. Nelson. The person has not harmed you at all or even said anything out of the way to you for your public opinion display.

My experience is quite different. I wear a MAGA hat when I'm out and about. My right to my opinion, wouldn't you agree?

You can not imagine the looks, middle fingers and abusive language sent in my direction for using my first amendment rights. I only wish someone would counter with a Biden sign/flag/hat.

I actually stopped wearing the hat for a while for fear for my safety. Do you think I should feel fear for my choice for president? I don't.

See ya at the polls in November. You'll recognize me, I'm sure.

trouble maker

Your telling us that in carteret county people look at you funny for wearing a maga hat . Man, come on you think we just fell off the truck. Now if it was a biden hat yea, But MAGA hats and trump signs in carteret county are as thick as the fleas on your dog. Carteret county voted 88% republican in 2016 get real. Now don't get me wrong i understand why you would be ashamed to wear it, thats someone upstairs telling you to think once and a while.

saltydog

When he starts throwing bricks, trying to burn your house down and painting BLM on the street in front of your house, well....then, you might have a problem.

Sleepwalker

Saltydog,

That would make him a democrat... he would have a biden flag.

John

KATHY NELSON why do you have the right to put a sign up and he cant carry a flag. It is the same thing you are doing he is just holding his flag showing his support. You put your in the yard and hide in the house. And complain, ...

(Edited by staff.)

CARTERETISCORRUPT

No democrat losers in November. Maybe we should throw bricks and burn the writers house down; since the democrats see it as "peaceful protesting". See how she likes it.

CARTERETISCORRUPT

Anyone who thinks that Biden will restore the soul and health of our nation; has taken leave of their senses. Bunker Joe hasn't had an original idea in the 40+ years he has been in government, no need to think he will change now. Besides the obvious alzheimer's affliction that is evolving, Biden is but a puppet at best. I predict that if the democrats win the election (surely by mail in voter fraud), very soon later Biden will either die, have a debilitating health event, or similar, and his (yet to be named) running mate will be president. The Clintons have killed far too many in the past to avoid that scenario. Thus, if creepy Joe was to win, he signed his own death warrant. We are staring total destruction of our nation squarely in the face. Our only hope is to re-elect President Trump, and take back the House of Representatives, and secure a majority in the Senate. Then, if the Repubs can grow a pair; repeal and replace the majority of the insane laws the democrats have tied around our necks for far too long. Otherwise, Biden will raise our taxes, drown us in regulation, destroy our energy independence, attempt (and I mean attempt), to take our arms. Should the latter evolve, the riots we have seen in the cities are but a very small taste of events to come.

JohnnyR

There's a difference between protesting in a public area and marching up and down in front of someone's house because of their political beliefs. That boy should have had his rear kicked for doing that. I don't see any difference in what he was doing than what those protesters did to the McCloskey's in St. Louis.

But maybe everyone here that commented believe the McCloskey's were wrong for arming themselves the way they did when those protesters were in their front yard? You could apply your logic there too, no?

movinonup

No. Your logic is flawed. The McCloskeys property was on a private street. The rioters broke down a private gate and entered private property. They were carrying sticks and guns.

This young man is only carrying an American flag, while standing on a public sidewalk. He has not damaged anything or threatened the homeowners in any way.

If you do not see the difference, then there’s no help for you. These homeowners just don’t like seeing free speech in front of their house. They can take down their offensive sign any time they like.

Sleepwalker

You mean the dude that backed down corn pop...uncle no no touch biden

David Collins

No JohnnyR , not even close . Those “peaceful” violent Protesters , as you like to call them , destroyed a private gate and trespassed on private property threatening the homeowners . Huge difference here and they are darned lucky that no one went postal on them . Sadly , it looks like the homeowners will end up paying a price for their efforts at home defense and the criminals will get a pass . Can’t believe anyone can with a straight face equate the two incidents Butttt , we all have different eyes .

Sleepwalker

R,

Those “protesters” at the McCloskys house were on private property. They crashed a gate to a private subdivision. You would do the same if protesters came in to your trailer hood.

JohnnyR

Wasn't that boy marching up and down in front of her house? Are you saying your privacy only matters if you're rich enough to live in a gated community?

Wow, that is some view you guys have.

movinonup

I am starting to think jonny r did not know the McKluskeys lived on a private street with an iron gate that the rioters destroyed, to then trespass on private property. His news network conveniently left that information out. How else would you have said what you said?

David Collins

Finally you got it right JohnnyR . In many cases it does take money to buy your freedom from unwanted intrusion but with all the gated communities in this area , you knew that . Just being contrary or as my mom used to say “being cute” . Trying to play you and then put words in your mouth that you never uttered . Lefties do it all the time when wrong and trying to “ save face “ . Being “ rich enough “ is a relative term just like poor enough to be able to graze at the public trough .

If you reside on a public street , you have the honor of putting up with the public . All the public , 8 to 80 , blind , crippled or crazy . Nothing wrong with that but in these days of wall to wall reports of crazies destroying all manner of things , every waking day , it is no wonder she was concerned for her safety . Turn off the darned idiot box , TV , and read a good book . You will be missing Nothing but gloom and doom .

Everyone with a functioning brain knows the McCloskys did nothing wrong and are victims of a political setup orchestrated by cowardly leftist politicians . If it were me , I would file suits against them , personal suits , till the cows came home . Supreme Court here we come !

drewski

There is a video that shows the protesters walking through the undamaged gate and being confronted/ shouted at by the armed Mr. Mcclosky. https://twitter.com/i/status/1277607426934616065

The gate was damaged sometime after that. People who want to believe the narrative that they broke down the gate and were an imminent threat, will not be swayed by facts or videos.Nor do they understand the law. If you live in a million dollar mansion with stone walls, the bottom line is exposing yourself and your wife is just TERRIBLE tactics. I agree with the poster who suggested bringing a cool drink and a snack to the protester outside your house. All the usual suspects have attacked your LTTE with more or less vitriol, while decrying just how awful/ intolerant the left is. I guess that bible verse about the mote is not widely taught in local churches?

mpjeep

Unbelievable, Drew. Go back to sleep.

dc

Will be interesting to see how cancel culture & hypocritical Democrats try to counter & handle Rep. Gohmert's resolution to ban the Democratic Party as well as change its name. Nancy start stuttering. Even Mitt & other RINOs may be put on the spot if a senator can muster the backbone similarly in the senate. Sen. Cotton or Cruz just might find it worth the time.

Sleepwalker

They were uninvited intruders on private property. If someone came into your yard drewski, you wouldn’t confront them. Everyone has seen the destruction that the “protesters” have levied. Remember, you’re a liberal so you can’t call the popo.......

(Edited by staff.)

drewski

You make incorrect assumptions, and assign labels. You do not distinguish between protest and riot. If someone were in my yard my first action would be to see if they need assistance. If they have ill intent I am perfectly capable of detaining them till the police arrive. There is a word to describe ppl who blast away at intruders on pvt property " inmate".

David Collins

My , my . We do have a vivid imagination . Please refresh my memory . When did the McCloskys blast away at anyone ? Good try though . You sure your not Biden with a moniker ?

drewski

No one said the mccloskys blasted anyone. The question was posed, what would I do with an intruder. I suggest you gun slingers take a concealed carry course, or a refresher. The general statutes are quite clear. As always the replies here attempt to deflect. No one addressed the tactics of the mccloskys, which seem designed more as a publicity stunt they anything else. An armed criminal in the group could easily have shot them both.. The comment about corpse or inmate is the usual black or white hyperbole. Criminals and house breakers do exist, reasonable security, situational awareness, and the willingness to use the Approriate level of force will keep you from being a victim.

dc

If you are an innocent homeowner facing a potential lethal situation wonder which is worse being a corpse or an inmate?

JohnnyR

yes dc, an innocent homeowner with some young Trump zealot marching in front of her house simply because she posted her presidential choice on her lawn, (as folks have done for every election in modern times).

But you folks can't comprehend she was just as uncomfortable with this young man on her front lawn as the McCloskey's were with the protesters in theirs.

I think both the McCloskey's and Ms. Nelson were completely right to feel like they were being invaded, but you folks have become so politically polarized you can't even see your own hypocrisy.

Sleepwalker

You can’t call the police...you and your ilk are anti-leo...see how i lumped you in with all the liberals...

mpjeep

The thugs were there to do evil. Anyone that doesn't see that must be looking for a "summer of love" event. My hats off to these folks protecting their property.

David Collins

So now the young fellow is on her lawn , private property by the way . At first he was on the street/sidewalk . Just where was he and is he still demonstrating ? This saga just keeps getting better and better . Good job dodging , ducking and deflecting . Biden would be proud .

dc

Who are "you folks"? Thought you had recently become born again. Guess you forgot.

Bear26Actual

I was in the hospital at Carteret General for 6 days this past week. And I had a lady from dietary come in and saw my hat. It was a Trump hat. I told her my last name. She said she would never forget me because of my hat. And she was not nice about it! So after that I carefully checked my food for anything out of the normal. Then things I ordered were not right or not there. If people like this can work in a hospital and make people feel worse or threatened what else can they do. I asked her why or if she didn't like my hat. Her reply was " We cannot discuss politics!" But yet everyone else saw it and was happy and said so and discussed all that was going on. She was a Demoncrat and just did not want to lose her job.Because I perceived it as a threat how she acted and talked to me. From now on I will be going to Craven. I know people are gonna disagree but to act like that and make me worry about what I eat? No excuse.

SandFiddler

KATHY NELSON, your "lone Biden sign" is " clearly" not changing my vote either. I think our president would be quite proud of the young man's support regardless of his "tattered" flag. Since you crow about being a school teacher and parent, I'm quite surprised you have such a disdain for "tatter" and no disdain for bragging. I'm so thankful you were not an influence on my kids. TRUMP 2020

JohnnyR

And you geniuses still don't get it, you do not put on a political protest in front of a single family home regardless if they live on a public street or not. This idiot was targeting this family because of their Biden sign, this is called harassment and he should have been arrested, (or a baseball bat taken to him which would have been my choice if he was in front of my home). Normal people with any common sense or decency should realize this, you don't terrorize people's homes regardless what street they live on, private or public.

I guarantee you fellows would have been up in arms about the BLM bunch protesting your home because of you flying your swastika.

And the story about the hospital?!? Whew, that is one of the most paranoid things I've ever read!!

drewski

Johnny, you just need to accept that hospital food is a liberal plot,financed by George soros. Seriously though, don't let yourself be bated into angry baseball bat type statements, it just feeds their nonsense. I agree targeting a specific home of a pvt rather then public figure is morally wrong however it is legally correct. He has the right to do so and should be allowed to exercise his rights. Even if it makes the homeowner uncomfortable.

mpjeep

Sand, I find most liberals believe in first amendment rights for liberals only.

Sand, I'm sorry this happened to you. I wear a MAGA hat as well and know some of what you are going through.

Vote Trump 2020!

David Collins

Just when I thought things could not get weirder . One guy carrying a Trump flag does not constitute a protest . Either does someone driving about with a Washington Redskins flag . The guy with the flag is no different than the lady with the sign . No slogans tossed about , no threats , just a sign and a flag . If this sinks to the level of harassment , then both parties are equally guilty . It does not ! Call the police if you wish to embarrass yourself . Whop him along side the head if you wish to go to jail . ...

Bad things have happened in hospitals forever . Not hard to find ample evidence of that happening . They seldom hire the best for housekeeping and food service . In fact , these days food service is contracted out with little to no oversight . Check it out !

(Edited by staff.)

JohnnyR

People have lost the ability to understand basic levels of decency; it's one thing to be political in a public forum, but to stand in front of a residence holding a flag because they don't agree with the resident's presidential choice is insane.

It is also insane that people have become so caught up in politics that they can't even reason anymore, does CNN or Fox News really have that kind of effect on people? Completely blind that you actually think what that boy did was ok only because he was pushing Trump? I guarantee if some nut was holding a Biden flag outside of a Trump household, every opinion in here would be reversed. It's gotten that bad.

drewski

So this lady wrote a LTTE. She was immediacy personally attacked as well as her opinion. She is a bad influence on children, a braggart- hoist her flag & crow, she is verbose-word count, a coward- hides in house, crazy-taken leave of her senses, another writer who tried to support her opinion is no longer born again. Several comments have been edited so who knows what vituperative comments were deleted. Based on her 1st hand observation, she used the adjective " tattered" to describe the trump Flag. Hopefully she has learned that only the most flattering superlatives can be used in trump-world. That flag was actually pristine, crisp,& majestic. I am glad she wisely chose not to respond to the abuse directed at her. It would have only escalated to allegations that she was indoctrinated by lefties in college, is a disciple of R. Ailes , is a shill for the agenda of the CCP, or possibly a practitioner of WITHCRAFT. What we need in Carteret county right next to the courthouse is a dunking stool. That way we can test the ideological purity of those who have a different opinion. It was good enough for the Puritans it should be good enough for the trump cultists.

dc

One born again Leftist talking violence & a regular dyed-in-the-wool D Leftist trying to talk him out of it to try to make it sound as if Leftist don't believe in violence. It's getting hilarious.

drewski

Oh,DC is there no end to your labeling? Anyone who is not dyed in the wool trump is a leftist, a commie, just evil. I have been a registered republican since 1980. I beleive in the republican values that existed before the party was hijacked by the moral majority and their successors the trump cult. Go ahead whip out your ever ready label gun and type RINO in all caps, or SNOWFLAKE if you think that has more impact. I will defend your right to have and express your opinions, even though in my view its just silly  trump cult talking points as presented by Podium Barbie . When I read the comments on here I am often confused if its actual comments, or a transcript of last weeks hannity? Some, I hope many, Republicans are disgusted by tump and trumpism. With the recent court decision on unfaithful electors , I am really looking forward to the election and hopefully a repudiation of trumpism. George Wallace tried the Law &Order/ race baiting strategy, appealing to the "Silent Majority" It dident work. I am also looking forward to the 3 debates and we will see between the two elderly candidates who is fit and who is not.( Spoiler Alert :  trump is dumb as a post)

dc, because I don't share your myth beliefs doesn't necessarily mean anything about my view of the world. You do make assumptions, huh? But I think unfounded assumptions is why you enjoy "The American Thinker" so much.

Btw, you still haven't explained your "personal relationship" with the universe creator. I think that's where we left our last conversation, I'm still anxious to hear your explanation on that. Maybe you can talk me into being born again if you could give me a good enough answer, heck, no telling how many folks you could convert to being born again if you could answer that intelligently.

Sleepwalker

That dude with the trump flag IS an irritant. I won’t argue that BUT, good gravy, if it was one of the leftist marxist groups...it probably would have turned violent eventually. Proofs in the pudding.

David Collins

This conversation has to end . Bout to bust a gut laughing at all the hypocrisy from our socialist friends .

dc

In the Leftists' world their prosecutors protect the criminals from the people.

JohnnyR

Please point me to my hypocrisy David. Drew and I are not the same person and don't share all the same points of view. So you believe everyone that shares a point of view are also supposed to be 100% on agreement on everything?

I think both Drew and I agree that you should not target someone's home for a political protest, but I guarantee if someone was marching in front of my home scaring my family, he would get more than milk and cookies.

dc

Now we have a what may or may not be real RINO & what may or may not be real wannabe RINO claiming to be real RINOs & also claiming to support your right to be a real RINO. Hilarious!

drewski

From the lack of cogent responses to my comments, other then repetitive labeling I am led to wonder if the red dye in those chineese made maga hats is seeping out in this hot weather. And causing neuroligical damage? Clearly another attempt by the ccp to take out the " real patriots"

dc

JR recently converted & says he now owns a gun & will vote for Trump? Hope there are many more like-minded RINOs out there. Could be there are even some of the Atheist faith with similar intentions. We should support their right to do just that.

David Collins

Hypocrisy probably is the wrong word choice . Having re read the letter , I guess she is asking what the guy with the flag is trying to accomplish , is she not ? I say that they are both advocating for their particular political choice . No one is protesting anything . No threats are being exchanged . All is peaceful..... , I guess . So , what is the problem ? Political signage attracts opposing political signage like flies to sugar . Part of the natural order of things . Just amazed at the various tangents that we take while having a minor political discussion . Guilty as well , but enough is enough . Good by .

mpjeep

I'm out as well, David.

The Subjectiveness of the editors editing my opinions is unacceptable to me. Won't let me get my points across and they called me a JERK.

Great rules Mr. Publisher.

JohnnyR

The problem is you don't bother innocent people at their home.

If you can't understand that David, then you are right that this conversation is over.

SandFiddler

Aren't the misspelling of the word "neurological" and obvious frustration over others entitled opinions similar to a certain democratic candidate's symptoms? The red cap just might be the cure. My beautiful cap does not fade. TRUMP 2020

dc

This is actually fascinating. Remember how the "MeToo Movement" faded after getting caught in it's Big Lie? Kind of like the D Party caught in its Big Lie accusing the Trump Campaign of colluding with the Russians when they were, in fact, the Guilty Party. Life just keeps boomeranging on them as they continue accusing others of what they themselves are falling down drunk guilty of. Rep. Louie Gohmert has now put the D Party in the same hot seat he had super agent Stroz in. Remember the Ds' & maybe even some Rinos' disbelief that he would actually have the gall to put the super agent play boy on the spot? It's "Cancel Culture's" turn now. The D Party is the "Party of Slavery, Bigotry, Jim Crow, & the KKK" & there's just no denying it. Seems their only way out is to claim they're really RINOs & have been all along. We just weren't aware of it, but they've decided it's best to break the news before their news conglomerate, Fake News, beats them to it. A real coming out party. Maybe they can rename themselves "The Coming Out Party"? Better yet maybe "The Guilty Party". Hilarious!

drewski

I share your hilarity. Flynn lied,stone lied, don Jr was only talking about Russian adoptions, (lied) individual 1 refused to be interviewed and provided written answers that mostly consisted of " i don't remember" Mueller was a highly respected lifelong gop member. His words were " If the president had not commited a crime we would have so said." All those things are as real and true as the dems past shamefull history on civil rights. God bless America. & Bye-Don 2020

dc

None of it comes close to BO/Biden "Spygate" Crime Syndicate Inc & the two-tiered judicial system one for Ds & none for Rs. Finally, still nothing tops the Party of Slavery, Bigotry, Jim Crow & the KKK like the one Byrd was Grand Cyclops or something like that of & your gal Hillary's mentor & a Biden favorite....

(Edited by staff.)

drewski

Spygate is a far right fantasy promoted by trump on twitter and fox " news". Actually hannity and Carlson and Jeannie and all the rest are entertainers, not journalists. Here is fox news lawyer in June of this yr explaining in court why fox doesn't need to tell the truth

What we’re talking about here, it’s not the front page of The New York Times,” said the network’s lawyer, Erin Murphy. “It’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, which is a commentary show.”

The rest of your argument suggests that since dems are alledged by you to be bad its ok for gop to be corrupt too. I am pretty sure 2 wrongs don't make a right. I am glad that you dident try to deny the Russian interferance in 2016 in favor of rump, since barr said it happened on national television just yesterday.i think the 2 tiered justice system might be another fever dream? I won't be making any more comments on this thread.

dc

... If he didn't know, he should have known it was all a hoax very early on & certainly more than he seemed to know in testimony about that 400-odd page sham written by a ballroom full of Hillary supporting far left liberals & maybe 1 or 2 of your favorite fellow BO/Hillary worshipping RINOs shouldn't he? Maybe he's just a demented BO/Hillary puppet like Biden. Of course the so-called lead investigator being the author & the one who gave her the pre-election party it all makes perfectly good sense. If they found a crime they should have referred it somewhere other than the D Legislature & if they didn't a 5th grader could have said so in less than 400 pages. For how many millions & time enough wasted to ensure a far left takeover of the legislature? Your fellow RINO Ryan & you should be proud. Rosie fell for Fake News stories from leaks pushed by the far left socialist/communist Ds & his fellow RINOs (your favorite kind) believing a fairy tale prepared with big money from Hillary's D Crime Syndicate Inc. He admitted if he could do it all over he would not have done it. We could rehash the pre-election & post-election crimes committed, who's gone to jail & who should be in jail ....

Hmmmmmm , whole lot of editing going on here . Got out too soon . Just gets better and better . My crook is better than your crook and all that muck . They all pretty much bend the rules and make up what they feel they need .

CARTERETISCORRUPT

The most amusing point is that the democrats and their supporters who are opposed to federal law enforcement doing their jobs protecting federal property, and enforcing the law; are the very SAME FOLKS that will want to use federal cops to confiscate our firearms, via a O'Rourke/Biden confiscation law. The local cops largely won't do this (except for a few sheriffs, very likely the one we have), and it will have to be done by federal agents of one manner or another. I invite everyone to note my prediction here: The DEMS WILL USE FEDERAL AGENTS TO CONFISCATE CITIZENS FIREARMS. Wait and see. Of course, the rioters and looters aren't a threat; their murders and such are just peaceful protest. Citizens who own firearms are dangers to our nation. Their logic. IT is coming soon to your area.

dc

The Russia collusion was a plot that failed. People caught up in it & charged could have &/or should have been charged/prosecuted long before the election if authorities wanted to. After the election they all just became extensions of the plot. Then there are those charged/prosecuted only as result of "spying" on the campaign. The Leftists didn't get everything they wanted from this plot but it's looking like they might eventually get what they were after in the plot & much more. You can bet Putin who was really backing the Ds, Communist China, Iran & all of a free America's other enemies are all smiles. These are all a free America's major enemies & will stop at nothing & Trump is the only person of real power who can & has tried to stop their unrelenting effort to destroy us.

Then there is Soros & all of a free America's internal enemies consisting of a past presidential candidate & president & his would-be Trump wrecking crew. These are as dangerous if not more so than a free America's external enemies. And, laugh if you want but if there has ever been an anti-Christ he was in our immediate past.

If we continue to make all issues representative of a democrat or republican view, we have lost as a nation. There is nothing wrong with having differing opinions, but to accelerate the arguments into threats and condemnation, benefits only a small portion of our society. Change is inevitable, so we should be trying to find ways to make sure the changes further the best interests of the majority. It is easy to get focused on only interests that matter to us each individually. But those short term remedies only further compromise our society. We need to be mainly science driven. Our motivations should not be largely driven politically, emotionally, religiously, monetarily, or selfishly.

Our Founders may not be impressed with the crowd currently doing their best to destroy this country who would like for us all to cave to their Far Left Radical Socialism that was promised with the "fundamental change" started around 2008. They've made good progress towards their goals but it may not be as easy as they think.
