Any comment on the OP, or just sticking with the yeahbuts?
This is the comment I was responding to. You then told me to get the f out with my response about the warehouse and various other things about Walz. Is any of this coming back to you.

Oh. I have WeatherGuy on ignore. Clicking on 'Show ignored content' looks like I have about half the posters on this thread on ignore. :)

Not a problem, just wanted to show that I was simply responding to questions.
I can comment on the op I have no idea what the heck will happen. Trump may be a crazed lunatic but I can see them needing to send in the marines to drag him out of the ovulation office. I do find the question a little silly and with it being directed only at one candidate to be a little transparent on the media’s side of things.

This is why I don't even think we're dealing with classic fascism here. This is a trans-national criminal syndicate operating out of kleptocratic government regimes. In classic fascism, Trump would be championing the state. Instead he's consuming the state, literally stripping it for parts and selling it (mail sorting machines, medical PPT, etc.). It's been like a hostile takeover of an already troubled asset by a corporate raider with the intention of sucking the company dry. In fact, that model is where these people probably got the idea.

But the only way it works is to hold on to power; otherwise you get prosecuted once you're deposed. That's why they'll do anything to stay in power. Or they'll pretend they have the power to negotiate a deal where they escape justice in exchange for leaving office peacefully.
True derangement. If you actually look at the definition and history of fascism, you will see the tactics and policies of the modern left. Political violence is happening across the country by the left. Intimidation, rioting, destruction. Some think of fascism as government controlling corporations. The major corps in the US are all aligned with the left. Their messaging, advertising, corporate policies, all leftist. Most major corps in the country are actively pushing and training their employees on critical race theory.

media is turning up the heat on Trump to 11. Every insider wants him gone badly. The intel community, the establishment. Your conclusion is that this is proof that Trump is bad. But there’s another possibility that you haven’t considered. And there’s a mix of legitimate complaints about Trump mixed in, so it’s hard to see the big picture clearly.
Anyway, this whole “worry” is ridiculous. If the election is in dispute, courts decide. 2000 redux. If Trump loses, he’s out. Who is going to resist? No one. The left holds all the power except the presidency and senate. This is a complete red herring. It is the left that might use violence and attempts to seize power should Biden lose.

Only in a thread where Trump is making excuses for why he wouldn't step down if he loses the election.....a bunch of dotard Trump slurpers would come in hot with "WHY WON'T WALZ STEP DOWN!?".

Despite the fact that he's not even up for reelection. You can't even assign the righties here an IQ. Most of them need something easier....like a color.
They were all amazed by Trump's "Person Woman Man Camera TV" recitation.

My kids can’t attend school every day. They are receiving a sub-standard education.
My son couldn’t play football and basketball tryouts have been postponed.
I had to cancel my trip to Hawaii.
I couldn’t take a piss at McDonald’s this morning.
I have employees that can’t come into the office when needed.
I can’t go to church without wearing a mask.
I can’t get into restaurants and bars I would typically go to without a reservation.

Should I keep going?
Walz cancelled your trip to Hawaii, cancelled your son's basketball tryouts and then barred you from the McDonald's bathroom? Wow. He's a tyrant who must be stopped!

I've seen takes that he's as likely to leave office November 4th as he is to have to be escorted out. Basically an Eric Cartman "screw you guys, I'm going home. I never wanted this job anyway." resignation, with a Pence pardon as a parting gift.

This touches on the key to this whole thing: not giving Trump the power he pretends he has. It's like a toddler threatening to burn the house down--they don't even know where the matches are. Trump would need a lot of help to pull this off, and what needs to be done now is make sure he doesn't get it. Get assurances from state and local officials that there's going to be a normal election regardless of the abnormal candidate.
Well by putting it all out there now...it gives his worshipers some time to come up with reasons why it is good.

GWG trying to equate distancing with Trump trying to burn down democracy.

These people actually exist and are too dense to see how stupid they look and sound.

Walz is using powers that are granted to the Governor by the State Constitution - powers that have been upheld in court.

and to the bigger picture for Galt - every instance you cite is due to the virus. School districts are choosing learning models based on the case counts in their local county. likewise with activities and sports. if case counts get too high, schools are forced into distance learning and can't play sports.

Walz is not spreading the virus or causing case counts to rise. the growth in cases is tied directly to people congregating without face coverings or social distancing. college students - or that age group - are the #1 factor driving the rise in case counts.

In Martin County MN, there was a funeral service followed by a reception with no masks or social distancing. Which lead to a breakout. Which led to the local school going to distance learning. and now the local football coach is doing videos on social media pleading with people to wear masks and avoid these gatherings.

Not to mention the erasure of historical facts (tearing down statues might be one of the first steps), which has also been used by dictatorial regimes to control the populace.

Dems trying to keep elections in tact. Trumpers like you trying to justify ignoring election results.

Lol. Trumpism is truly an infection of the mind. You've got it real bad.

You're trying to explain things to people who think that bypassing election results is democracy. Maybe some will return to normal after their Trumpism subsides. I'm afraid that some are too far gone.

That's why, at least on its face, it's a tactical error on his part. Unless this has the effect of pre-normalizing this shit, which the stupid media will probably facilitate.

I didn't know the election already occurred.

Maybe you're already so used to democratic dictatorship, you think it actually did.
