Dumbest shit ever.
Doing nothing but solidifying the divide and encouraging more radical behavior from loonie Trump supporters.
Big Tech ain't helping either.
Alienating a group that doesn't normally do much but roll their eyes at the left. Some will feel pushed to further action.
what is the parallel in roman history? Civil war after the death of Caesar?As a fan of Roman history, the pendulum that swings back after a charismatic populist is taken down generally results in what people are actually afraid of. I really don't like what I'm seeing.
It was literally the most bipartisan impeachment in the history of impeached US presidents.
All of this is true about the first impeachment, but not this time.It's a waste of time and taxpayer dollars.
We don't have anything else to worry about other than getting Trump impeached 6 days before he leaves office.?
It's stupid political stunt that could have drastic unintended consequences.
And it's also a great example of why the vast majority of this country hates the people running the government.
This is a very bipartisan, non-jetboat owner point of view.All of this is true about the first impeachment, but not this time.
He encouraged rioting. Read his speech. Of course he softened it at times but the message was the same. We need to make sure he can never run again when the Dems fuck shit up like they eventually will.
this doesn’t make much sense mate. These rednecks and their president have been enacting the most aggressive, divisive, conflictive, authoritarian play in American political history. They just invaded the Capitol. Now you’re worried that these people will react from oppression by the evil left?Like the Capitol?
I don't know man. I have a lot of very redneck acquaintances. Between big tech, biased media, the alleged stolen election that many of them believe was crooked, and now an impeachment 6 days before his term is up - many of them are legit just done with it all.
Especially after a year of our cities being taken over and vandalized with elected officials actually encouraging the behavior.
People are done. They aren't just rolling their eyes at this shit anymore. And the people I know aren't what I would call radicals - but they are certainly talking like it lately. I can feel a shift - and this impeachment might not be the win the Dems think it's going to be.
You sound clever. I’m trying real hard to find out what you mean but I can’t get there. Best I can do is to picture a mob of chubby middle aged men wearing sunglasses and maga hats having a hard time lynching Bernie to death. A couple of them get scapegoated and fed to the media. Breitbart news claims it’s China’s fault. Business remains as usual in Wall Street.We're closer to the Gracchi than we are Caesar. If we'd made it to Caesar it would be abundantly clear.
I was referring to the political atmosphere rather than actual civil war in the streets. Like the Gracchi, Trump is a populist seen by his supporters as being "for the people against the establishment". Also, like the Gracchi, his ousting is being exacerbated by establishment politicians who are acting in a manor in which "We need to make sure this can never be allowed to happen again." In this case the DNC are attempting to use tools for things they aren't really meant for because it will meet their own political goals. This impeachment is the third attempt in a week to get Trump stricken from the record and all 3 have been using different mechanisms, and by extensions different reasons. The guy will be gone in 6 days, and instead of letting him skulk away into irrelevance, they're further galvanizing his supporters. So he or one of his cronies will be running in 2024, and probably have a lot of support and that's completely ignoring what big tech is doing. Whether you agree with their actions or not, the atmosphere being created speaks for itself.You sound clever. I’m trying real hard to find out what you mean but I can’t get there.

I have not. I'm currently going to be looking for something new to watch as Vikings winds down though. Any good?btw have you watched the new series Barbarians?
Donald Trump supporters pay significantly less taxes than those that have voted against Donald Trump.Pissing off the half of the country that actually generates tax dollars. Great idea. Haha.
A majority of voters, 56 percent, say they hold President Trump responsible for the storming of the U.S. Capitol, while 42 percent say they do not hold him responsible.
A slight majority, 52 - 45 percent, say President Trump should be removed from office. Voters also say 53 - 43 percent that he should resign as president.
Donald Trump supporters pay significantly less taxes than those that have voted against Donald Trump.
States that went to Donald Trump contribute significantly less tax revenue to the federal government than states that voted against Donald Trump.
Neither the GOP or Donald Trump have represented half the country since 2004.
Most Americans blame Trump for the capitol attack
If you're in the group that think he wasn't responsible, even though there are many reports that he watched it positively and refused to intervene when staffers asked him to, did I get that. If he's not responsible then of course he shouldn't be impeached for it. But I find that there are many people of the position that Trump is directly responsible for inciting a direct attack on another branch of government but wish to do nothing about it because he's leaving anyway and to do something his divisive. To me this seems pretty short-sighted. To do nothing is quite divisive as well. No harm no foul? Good try your attack failed?
The impeachment is all but guaranteed.
There's also a really interesting political piece here where Republicans can confirm the impeachment during Senate trial and are not forced to remove the president because he'll already be out... But it will prevent Trump from holding office again. and I think there's a surprising number of Republicans who have now used him for what they can and are ready to make sure that he doesn't come back into the party in 2024.
