Absolutely.

Except I think the goal isn't poached frog ... it's frog soup.

I'm not Fred Rogers either, however I like to try and strive to be more like him. I would hope that someone who is going to see a movie based on his life, and on an interview that was a fantastic read by the way, that the person going to see the movie would seek to emulate him as well. I think he would find the situation and reactions of those involved a sad state of affairs.

Unless you give people like that power and attention, they are totally powerless.


Um, like maybe by voting them in as a member of the House of Representatives and giving her air time on MSNBC?

I would argue that a member of the House has power and that people pay attention to MSNBC.

Kinda disproved your own point there, buddy...

Hm, legal lines perhaps like these?

18 U.S. Code § 2383 - Rebellion or insurrection

18 U.S. Code § 2384 - Seditious conspiracy

18 U.S. Code § 2385 - Advocating overthrow of Government

Nothing wrong with that.

Didn't mean to imply that there was. You can do worse.

I am really and truly saddened, though not surprised, to see the number of people listening and nodding along to that crap.


My Aunt is one of them, my wife wants to unfriend her on facebook because she supports all this stuff. FYI, my wife is a first generation immigrant, green card, not even a citizen.

So this type of harassment has happened 3 times in less than 1 week, to three conservative women. combine that with Mad Maxine putting it out over the airways of MSNBC, that not only is this type of behavior ok, but she also encouraged more of it and we have a very disturbing trend starting here.


Do you think it will help for the rest of us to propagate their message for them?

I don't. In my opinion, Waters is attempting to use her position to instigate riots and gang behavior, if not terrorism.

Implying that she represents "all Democrats" or "all liberals" is given her power she doesn't have; if anything, we need to remind people that she is a cartoon.



I would never say she represents all liberals, but she does represent the far left progressives, and they are precisely the ones who I would suspect would listen to her provokation

Yes absolutely this is all happening because A people have not raised their children correctly or at all. B parents letting kids do whatever they want and have no consequences. C the government getting into the household and telling people and passing laws on how to raise your kids. For me when they started the paddling laws and removing the paddle or spanking from schools. As kids we never cared about a referral or getting in trouble or yelled at. We cared about 2 things 1 getting paddled and 2 losing our recess or field trips and so forth. Kids these days get their cake and eat it to.

This is getting nuts, how long will we stand for this. I know people currently bashing Trump and playing along saying if its noticed they will be contacted or certain groups will reach out to them or a benefactor? Well really only one of 3 people who told me that's their plan. He does not believe any of it but honestly believes he will benefit from it. Can this really be happening or please tell me these are just 3 dummies!

a reply to: toysforadults Yes it's not worth it. Its like the fighting thing that bothers me. Back in my day we would meet up at the ball field make a circle and fight it out until someone wins, a agreement is reached, someone stops it or both are to tired to beat at each other....Now you never know when someone's pride is hurt or gets embarrassed they will pull or come back with a gun.

The phrase “far left progressives” doesnt seem like a valid reference to an actual cohesive group of people. It’s one of those phrases that gets repeated by extremist media. Unless by chance you are referring to the Progressive Caucus ... are you?

It's not even that.

Paddling laws or spanking at school have not so much to do about it.

It's about discipline in the home being so weak that kids feel free to run roughshod over everyone else they meet, including their teachers in school.

When I was a kid, I knew that what happened at school, stayed at school. The minute the disciplinary issues at school followed me home in some way and my parents got involved, I was in a world of trouble because then I was facing my parents' wrath (not how some would interpret it, but for a kid, it was unpleasant enough to make me shape up in school for the usual small disciplinary measures like a name on the board or missing recess occasionally).

We handle my son the same way, and it works. He's no trouble for any of the other adults he interacts with except for that one teacher, and *she* refused to listen when I kept telling her she was butting up against a learning issue and he was acting out to hide that he *couldn't* comply, not because he had no discipline.

But for a lot of families, there simply isn't any real discipline in the home, and I'm not talking about belt beatings or anything. I'm just talking about clear and consistent expectations of behavior coupled with clear consequences for a lack of same. The best time to start is when they're young, and the older you let them get before you start, the tougher your fights will be.

Those poorly disciplined kids get sent off to school, and they're the ones you wish the paddling/spanking still existed for. Because if the parents can't/won't instill discipline, then someone needs to before it's too late, but too often, those are the parents who won't stand for letting anyone discipline their kids and they won't and they sure won't let them be sent home and suspended because often they can't really stand them either.

I don't know how you fix it though.

No, not a traitor.

She is walking the edge of incitement to riot.

Traitor?

No.

I see this, surprisingly enough, much as Gryphon sees it. It's incitement to riot, or however you want to define it. It doesn't rise to the level of treason, not even remotely.

I didn't read too much further than this..

From where I sit, I feel the main problem is currently the left. Its no longer about.. well.. anything other than reacting to media. Now, to be sure, this isn't exclusive to any political standing. However, the reaction itself has become extreme. My biggest concern is this ramping up, with reciprocation. I don't find it funny and I've been growing increasingly concerned for about the past decade.

Now, I have my own ideas why the left was the primary, initial target.. but that is perhaps a different discussion.

Ive seen it in my personal life: People who know me know that I am extremely liberal. The number of times I've been asked "why aren't you vocal against Trump" is hard to fathom. My answer is always the same, that I am (or was) working on the technology and processes to actually work towards what I hold as an ideal. I've been called a traitor for that answer...

Anyway, the left has become defined by how they respond to media and government representatives. It is no longer about anything else like social nets, making a better life for all using novel ideas, or even trying to discuss workable avenues at all. I find it deeply disturbing what has become of folks that I was previously aligned with politically and socially.

If that continues to escalate, I believe our nation may truly lose that MindWar. I'm not sure what will happen at that point, but it wont be good. At all.

I can't and wouldn't try to counter your personal feelings on any matter, and I'm really trying to grow beyond my sometimes irritatingly pedantic self ... but ... I just genuinely do not believe in the generic "left" in terms of specific actions/reactions etc. if the left is Democrats and liberal leaning folk ... because these groups are scattered and focused on many splintered causes and literally consumed by diffused identity politics.

SO many are talking about ramping up. From what I see, it's about the time that the American electorate undergoes a sea change ... much as we did in 2010. 2008 saw one party take the White House and the Congress, much like 2016 did.

In 2018 we see the frustrations of people who feel like they have no voice because "the other guys" are in power just as we did with the Tea Party groups in 2010.

That's because certainly for the last decade or so, when one side comes into unchallenged power, they tend to spend a lot of time "going nyah-nyah" to their perceived enemies, like the Democrats did to some degree with Obamacare.

Perhaps you're right. I do think that there are deep cultural forces at play that are coming to a denouement of international proportions ... I don't think any of us can deny that the world we have known is changing.

I will say this though. If the Democrats do take back the Senate or the House (I cannot see them taking both) I think we will see President Trump move more toward congeniality at least with them.

He likes to be seen as a winner, and if the Red Team is not in power, he will work with the Blue Team.

Which might not be a terrible thing ...

Yeah, nowhere near treason, but one of the statutes I listed certainly might. From the supreme court decision which upheld the prosecution of leaders of the Communist party:


In further construction and interpretation of the statute, I charge you that it is not the abstract doctrine of overthrowing or destroying organized government by unlawful means which is denounced by this law, but the teaching and advocacy of action for the accomplishment of that purpose, by language reasonably and ordinarily calculated to incite persons to such action. Accordingly, you cannot find the defendants or any of them guilty of the crime charged [512] unless you are satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that they conspired to organize a society, group and assembly of persons who teach and advocate the overthrow or destruction of the Government of the United States by force and violence and to advocate and teach the duty and necessity of overthrowing or destroying the Government of the United States by force and violence, with the intent that such teaching and advocacy be of a rule or principle of action and by language reasonably and ordinarily calculated to incite persons to such action, all with the intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of the Government of the United States by force and violence as speedily as circumstances would permit.

I think that might be stretching it a bit... Maybe. I'll have to ponder that for a bit before agreeing or disagreeing.

Surely, she's overstepping herself big time, and leaving herself open for the all but inevitable push back.
