24. Sadly,

Now the years are rolling by me
They are rockin' evenly
I am older than I once was
And younger than I'll be; that's not unusual
Nor is it strange
After changes upon changes
We are more or less the same
After changes we are more or less the same


For a time, I thought we were on our way to enlightenment, but apparently I was wrong.

4. i think it's that we suck at assessing risk.

 

ie- how many people saw right away how dangerous former guy was? despite experts w their hair on fire.

why do we need idiot warnings on simple products? cuz we're too lazy to think.

9. I think that's kind of the former guy's modus operandi.

Sort of how a narcissist or a sociopath or a cult leader presents normally at first..."I'll protect you, it'll be so great. Only I can solve your problems for you you just have to follow me and everything will turn out great..." Act normal to get in the door, and once inside that's when stuff goes sideways.

Everyone expected former guy to pivot, and he never did. I believe most people on 1/6 were primarily expecting just a loud exterior protest for the cameras for news coverage, and didn't imagine they'd actually breach and go running down the halls howling for congress members' heads and smashing the place.

TL;DR - expectations were set: the right always complain about how the left has "violent" protests and people assumed that would be a factor, when in reality the right-wing groups were there to cause actual trouble the former guy implied with a wink and a nudge to avoid culpability.

15. How about a country when a revelation like this doesn't have people up in arms?

When that is, more or less, Business As Usual.

5. Cue the village idiots to claim that Antifa pretending to be Trumpers was part of the conspiracy

 

And that it's just a bizarre coincidence that the only people who've been arrested are innocent Trump supporters who just happened to be touring the Capitol that day.

Or maybe that's part of the conspiracy, too ...

But plenty of Fa and ProFa. Nobody there was opposing Fascism except for the Capital Police.

21. Those on the Trump side are morons who think they're smart.

They're used to being surrounded by mostly fellow morons who are easy to con. They can't understand that they're in the bottom 30% intelligence-wise. They believe themselves to be smarter than everyone else.

10. On its face, the "antifa" excuse is utterly stupid.

Anti-fascists doing fascist things, like trying to overthrow democracy, to make fascists "look bad." That's like cops committing crimes, like robbing jewelry stores, to make crooks "look bad."

13. They don't know what anti-fa means, They can't even pronounce it correctly.

They always say-- 'anTIfa!.
Shouldn't it be either ANtifa ? or antiFA?


They also don't know what fascism is, even generally.

All the fans at last night’s Lakers game in L.A., wearing purple & gold, were really Suns fans in disguise.

be and Republicans just crapped all over him.
