A new civil war is possible in the U.S. At lest that is what I am reading in some editorials. I don't think so, but I do think it could be something like what happened in the 60's with armed gangs shooting politicians and politicians calling out the national guard to shoot protesters. and as I recall the police did a lot of that in the 60's as well. The 60's was not all drugs and free love. any thoughts on this subject.

I don't think "civil war" would be the right term, either. Civil unrest on a massive scale, yes, and I suppose a fall into something like anarchy might be possible.

I'd be inclinded to think about where the reports are coming from, where these sources are politically, and what that political direction has for a benefit from a civil population that is scared that the world is about to fall apart.

I'm waiting to see if the biker gangs will put 'wanted posters'up like the Hell's Angels supposedly did. Let them all have an all out biker war at same time. Would be interesting to see the mixture.

Man, biggest part of the bs posted around are from the political rags on both sides of parties and damn if dumb asses don't take those rags as the 'true gospel' because by god it came from them and has to be true.

I hate those damn things. I told some on Face Book that I'd be more inclined to believe the National Enquirer as truthful than any of those stupid ass political rags they so much fall for. Should had seen the pissing and moaning I got form both sides of the coin on that remark. 😆

Civil unrest is already here. ICE headquarters in NY city is shut down due to protesters, In Portland Oregon there are protesters trying to shut down ICE there. Thousands of protesters marching in cities on both coasts. Have not heard of any shooting yet, I am sure that will come soon.

Don't think it'll do much good to protest the ICE. They're doing what Carrot Top tells them to do. Don't know if it would do much good protesting Carrot Top either.

The Cheezel in Chief would likely enjoy all the attention

He usually does enjoy the attention and if it's against him he'll just point fingers and rant/rave that it's someone else's fault that they did it first etc. I swear if you take away his Twitter account he'll be like a fish out of water gasping for air.

people are fed up. no doubt about it.

the violence always comes from the tiki carrying wack-a-doodles, however.

protesting is a right - as one man said, we can't ignore those who are doing wrong, because that would mean ignoring the victims.
Every American has a moral imperative to protest what is wrong.

Feds in riot gear break up protest that had effectively shut down ICE in Portland Or for nine days. and with Kennedy retiring from the supreme court it will now move farther to the right.
