I'm sure Trump's threat to send Feds into Chicago for the 'carnage' has nothing to due with this...

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-donald-trump-chicago-street-signs-removed-met-1207-20161206-story.html

After much fanfare from Chicago aldermen over the righteousness of tearing down President-elect Donald Trump's honorary street signs, city workers quietly removed the placards over the weekend.

A city sign shop crew pulled down the remaining two street signs on Wabash Avenue near Trump Tower at 8 a.m. Sunday, according to Chicago Department of Transportation spokesman Michael Claffey. A third Trump sign was stolen months ago

The City Council voted a week before the Nov. 8 presidential election to take down the signs, citing the "caricature" of Chicago that Trump presented during the campaign through his frequent mentions of the city as a place overrun with violent crime. Aldermen also knocked Trump's pledge to deport millions of immigrants in the country illegally in voting to take away the street sign honor.

7. Ah Ha! So that's' what's behind his little tantrum!

 

I knew there had to be an ulterior motive. He is becoming very easy to read. Every action of his is an act of vengeance toward some individual or group. He does nothing out of principle.

8. If he wants to send Feds anywhere,

he needs to be sending FEMA to Mississippi and Georgia.

12. What Feds?

Is he going to get soldiers to fire on American citizens?

I can see all Chicagoans, no matter their allegiance, creed, color, getting behind a fight against something like this. Then there will be carnage.

I am waiting for him to start punishing blue states like Illinois.

14. It would be interesting to see how tRumps brown shirts

 

would deal with a few million angry protesters. Maybe there should be another march on DC at the same time, make sniffles really paranoid.

20. Why do I feel a Posse Comitatus Act violation coming?

I think we'll see the U.S. military patrolling the streets of an American city before all's said and done.

Maybe not this time, in Chicago, but we better hope and pray there's not another terrorist attack of the 9/11 magnitude any time soon.

In the event of something like that, Trump would suspend civil liberties as reflexively as a frog leg twitches when you hook it up to a battery.
