    .. that we're getting close to seeing that national-level purge that so many people are worried about? By purge, I mean a point where the boiling political environment will overflow and give certain groups the excuse to mass loot (TV's and tennis shoes), riot (car-tipping, etc), commit random acts of physical violence, arson, run around wearing scary-face bandanas, black hoodies and various types of oversized dark clothing, weaponized - even if its just a piece of pipe - but weaponized nonetheless. Just curious if anyone besides the people and groups that I work with see this as very real and coming soon to a community near you.

    And yes, I'm going fishing this week so you will see a report somewhere other than The Lounge. Yay !!!!

    I'd imagine we're closer now that we have been in a long time. My view is if it does happen, it'll be Election Day night next year. Regardless of the winner. Some group or another will be upset enough to start raising hell, and it'll probably roll downhill from there. Unless of course some massive political upheaval comes along between now and then. At that point all bets are very much off.

    I think every day is political upheaval. If one issue is proven to be not fruitful, another is immediately manufactured and aired by CNN.

    True. However, I'm thinking it'll take Congress to lose its kollektiv mind and start really and truly changing the rules of the game politically. Until 2020. It'll be more predictable that year at least. Before then it'll take an impeachment to stir the shizzpot enough to make it all roll downhill.

    I obviously don't see it at the same day to day level as you and your colleagues, but I've been listening to the talking points of 2020 prez candidate Andrew Yang, who's primary concern is how tech and automation is displacing millions of American workers. I can see this as the catalyst that sparks riots.

    The auto industry already automated away 4M jobs, half of which never found work again and the other half went on disability. Soon, self-driving trucks are going to displace 3.5M jobs. Amazon is eating up every mom and pop shop across America. I have not heard of any politician address this other than Yang (who's really a CEO, not a politician... Maybe you'll like him Creek, although he is a Dem).

    So yeah, in a few years millions of older Americans without an industry to work in who are being told to "just learn how to code." Yeah, right.

    I've seen on the news nor to long ago that they are making a robot for fast food places that will cook and flip the burgers. They already have machines in the fast food places where you can order and pay, eliminating the cashiers job of taking your order and payment eventually.

    I can picture that happening easily. The mood is right. So many disgruntled Americans out there right now. Things could pop off at any time.

    You mean like the nuclear option invoked in the Senate or refusing to act on Garland’s nomination for +290 days?

    Let me ask an honest question. Do any of you think we will come to know what’s in the Mueller report?

    What’s your confidence level that we’ll be spoonfed only the upper 30% of the findings?

    Impeachment is a waste of time only because the blind allegiance in the Senate

    Jussie smollett could have very well started riots and looting with yet another fake hate crime. Dude should get a buttload of jail time.

    Hi,
    Point 1. The nuclear option was frist used by the Dems, even though other Dems warned them if used the Republicans would use it later.

    Point 2. It's already been reported that not all of the report will be made public.

    Point 3. Blind allegiance isn't just a Republican thing.

    If that wasn't the best reason to vote no on it, then I don't know what is.

    I could see Melania and Ivanka join in with a haughty “let them eat cake” statement – as the hordes topple the barricades.

    If they did they would be accused of plagiarism for stealing a quote from Marie-Antoinette.

    As far as a lot of people are concerned, Smollett's shenanigans set us back as a people 100 years. Im sorry, but I have to agree with that. Ironic how it wasnt white America that tripped the trigger. Problem is, black America isn't saying a thing about it even though one of their own is the guilty party, so I guess it never happened? What a mess.
