I can't smoke in a restaurant.... I cannot drive without a seat belt..

many stores I go into in the summer all say, no shirt no shoes no service...


I have never seen anyone storm a freaking statehouse, fully armed with military grade ordnance...screaming their rights are being diminished over those issues, but wear a mask when in groups of people??? some are losing their minds,..

Folks (in deference to the future President) there is a "disturbance in the force"

4. Russians influencing the Turnip... oh yeah I can see that ellen

I am so sick and tired of stupid people, people who actually think that threatening legislators or reporters somehow makes their screwed up thinking process viable

2. Other than Portland's annual naked bike ride

public nudity is banned. I have never feared being a target of violence because I have worn clothes outside of my home.

5. The right to ride nude is addressed in the right to assemble

law.

3. Oh, I think they lost their minds a long time ago.

They just haven’t had anything to yell about until recently.

7. I know. If there wasn't social media each one

8. Politics has become toxic in this country

It has become ingrained into our culture, amplified by social media and infotainment news.

9. We don't drive on the sidewalk either

There are lots of rules we follow for public benefit and to avoid unnecessary injuries and death.

People tend to accept these.

They don't threaten governors so they can drive on sidewalks. They don't walk around state capitols carrying firearms to defend their freedom to drive on sidewalks.

They don't post to social media that automobile deaths are fake news, or that seat belts are a conspiracy funded by Bill Gates to brign about socialism.

13. Now that makes too much sense Peacetrain

Could the lockdown protestors possibly being paid? But who would risk their own life like that? And don't some of these people have children and/or spouses who would be begging them not to be involved. Maybe that is happening or there would be more? We would be remiss to underestimate in November if these people would literally risk their life to help trump.

Anyway you look at it, some one/some group is organizing them. Remember reading when the protests started ...these groups formed LLCs. All within days of each other and had similarities in the information they distributed.

Think this article interesting..cellphone movement of protestors.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/may/18/lockdown-protests-spread-coronavirus-cellphone-data

Snip
In the 48 hours following a 19 April “Operation Gridlock” protest in Denver, devices reached the borders of neighboring states including Wyoming, Nebraska, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Utah.

In Florida on 18 April, devices returned to all parts of the peninsula and up to the Georgia border. In Wisconsin on 24 April, devices returned to smaller towns like Green Bay and Wausau, and the borders of Minnesota and Illinois.

14. Many people do drive without seatbelts.

You hear about them in news reports of fatal car crashes fairly often.

They're probably the same people who never wear a mask, too.
