One more time, there is no moral equivalence between sporadic violence at mostly peaceful protests (some of which was instigated by right-wing extremist infiltrators) against institutional racism and an (semi) organized attack on a co-equal branch of government in an attempt to invalidate the results of a free and fair election.
No moral equivalence whatsoever.
People who committed acts of destruction at BLM protests and anarchists in Portland should be arrested and held to account. But they were not trying to overthrow the government because they didn't like it that they lost. It's just not even in the same universe.
Oh, and Antifa is not an organized group. It has no membership roles. It has no organizing principle other than being against Fascism (like that is a bad thing.) My grandfather was a member of the original Antifa. Back then it was known as the United States Army.

For those of us old enough to remember, Reagan went down this road, and got laughed out of court.
For you strict constructionists here the Constitution is quite clear. Congress shall make no law regarding the establishment of a religion. Furthermore the Supremacy Clause establishes the Constitution of the United States as the supreme law of the land meaning that the Florida state government cannot make laws counter to U.S. Constitution.
Reagan even did the "moment of quiet reflection" bit. Nope. You can pray at home or in your local house of worship. You may take your recess or lunch time (free period, whatever) to pray as some in my public Jr. High did. But the government may not mandate time for religious worship in a publicly funded school. Period.

Many QAnon followers believe former President Donald Trump was fighting enemies within the so-called “deep state” to expose a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibals operating a child sex trafficking ring.
Believing any part of this should be ample cause for the forfeiture of the right to own a gun.
Idiots, caught up in a truly stupid conspiracy theory with guns. What could possibly go wrong?

This will not survive judicial review as it is clearly a violation of the Constitution.
This is Governor helmet hair ingratiating himself with the religious extremists that make up the GOP base.

It’s laughable for posters to say that Biden will cave on Russia and China. He is doing exactly what they feared he would do: unite our allies and speak with a unified voice about breakdowns in international norms, human rights violations and military posturing.
Puttie is not even man enough to attend a joint news conference because he knows what the questions would be and knows Biden would answer them.

At a MINIMUM, there should be hearings into this issue as it is a fundamentally anti-democratic abuse of power. I would not at all be surprised if indictments follow.
This makes anything that Nixon (or holder) did. It is just beyond the pale.

Not a Clinton or Obama delivery, but rooted in facts, didn’t throw our allies under the bus or bend over for Putin, so yeah. I’ll take it.

His speech and the Q and A were just embarrassing. He is clearly struggling
I’m sorry, have you ever heard Trump speak? Flubbing basic vocabulary. Incoherent sentence structure. The beginning and ending of sentences having nothing to do with each other. Reading from the tele-prompter like a hostage video.
Not only is Trump the worst negotiator I’ve ever seen, he’s worse than W at public speaking and that’s not something I ever thought I would see.

Certainly not for Vlad. Poor Puttie.

What a difference getting rid of a narcissistic sociopath makes. Currently 75% of EU nationals feel that the US can be trusted to do the right thing.
under the fat former guy it was 17%.

A war monger who became PM based on his dead brother’s heroics.
Never saw a war he wouldn’t love (for the US to fight for him). Never saw a non-Jewish minority he wouldn’t oppress.
So glad he’s gone regardless of what comes next.

Got records of his own WH counsel’s WIFE after he refused to comply with his illegal orders.
THATS how low he will go.
Yet one more thing to be held to account for. Trump will be in jail or court for the rest of his life. He sure as Hell Isn’t going back to the White House.

Never ever think “It can’t get any worse.” because with a narcissistic sociopath like Trump, there is no bottom. He would do anything to cover his crimes and escape responsibility.

Poor Puttie, he won’t have someone he has pee-pee tapes on , who won’t drop his wrinkled pants (seriously, what the hell is up with that?) and bend over for him.
Welcome back to reality, Vlad-boy

This is beyond the pale. Everything, EVERYTHING Trump accused his political opponents of doing, he actually did himself.
This is utter abuse of power and the politicization of the DOJ for malicious ends. There are multiple people that should go to jail.
And to the trolls that engage in whataboutism, you’re not even worth replying to. Your arguments are factious

A number of HIV patients have realized that they didn't even need to take those drugs. They simply quite, and have been fine for years.
Um, no. No they have not. Even when the virus is suppressed to un-detectable levels, it is still in the body somewhere. If you stop taking the ARV meds, it begins to reproduce again and the patient will eventually develop AIDS and die.
This is a well known fact and it is what killed boxer Tommy Morrison.
