Yes, it has. Brought on by the hypocrites who spent the last four years trying to overturn an election, and all last year actively inciting and supporting and having orgasms over riots, looting, burning, blocking public highways, and pulling innocent folks out of cars and killing and beating them. Until the shoe is on the other foot. Canceling the president of the US, calling for expulsion of duly elected representatives, changing election laws, and etc. When they start the gun confiscation crap, blood will flow, and I will be dead. I hope y'all enjoy your totalitarian socialist regime. I will not be back here after seeing y'all revel in this crap. I assume this will be deleted and I will be cancelled, per y'alls belief system. People are fed up. Go for it.  What happened the other day and why it actually happened (hint: it has nothing to do with Trump and will not go away when he is gone,) will be ignored. At the cost of spilled blood, I'm afraid. Unity? Bullshit. It's called divide and conquer. They don't want unity. They want total control. And for those who don't agree with them to go away. Or better yet, be imprisoned or die.

America isn't just those blue dots.The rest of it matters, too. My heart cries for my country, which no longer exists. It's just whatever the urban liberals want now. Trump didn't cause anything. Trump was manifested by a hundred million disenfranchised Americans who were born in America and woke up one day in Russia or China. For the first time in my life, I have absolutely no hope for the future. We are fucked.

For every action (force) in nature there is an equal and opposite reaction.

During early 2019, Nick Sandmann was accused of various things by certain media outlets.  Remarks by at least one commentator suggested he deserved to be physically violated.  Nick was a minor.  Lawsuits were leveled, and won. In the eyes of the courts, certain outlets were deemed slanderous. I believe we can all agree Trump is full of shit, but some of Trumps critics in the media are equally full of shit. Trump talks shit, but CNN in particular has a huge fact deficit, and spin problem.

After the George Floyd incident, opportunists who are bent on smashing norms, property, and others with aspirations to be petty dictators seized the opportunity to cause mayhem across the land. The justification for this violent acting out was dubious.  The real BLM protests that were not violent, and clearly legit.  During 2020, 432 whites were killed at the hands of police.  226 African Americans were killed.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2020/07/03/police-black-killings-homicide-rates-race-injustice-column/3235072001/

During the course of the year, there may have been one national story about a white person being killed by police. Whites dying at the hands of police just isn't newsworthy, and neither is the murder of a Mennonite mother at the hands of two black men.

The grasp for ratings, moral authority were sought aggressively. Yellow journalism, bigoted condemnation of whites as a race ensued, as well as the witch hunts. Zealots were doxing, reporting pictures of OK hand gestures in private residences which is a violation of the Right to Privacy.  While the riots, burning, brutality went on, then candidate Biden did not condemn the violence.  He finally did when there was pushback from armed militias. Justified bigotry worn by lefties was now fashionable, and normalized.

Simply opposing a very problematic POTUS dues not make one moral, just, or relevant. This has been the great Woke delusion. The lefty jackassery of recent years have provided wind for Trump's sails.  Hubris displaced rational thinking, and emotional intelligence.

Meanwhile others across the land were staying composed, and hoarding ammo. Bitterness, the lack of trust in our government began to grow, adding to the layers of establishment mistrust that started in earnest after NAFTA.

It is very clear that Trump lost the election due to his own incompetence. He also appeared to be the cause for the two Senate seat losses in GA. Trump also incited emotions, and eventually the zany and embarrassing aggression on the White House.  However, the events that have occurred in the last year has served as the primary catalyst for the impending disaster.

Tribalism is GAF.

Violence begets more violence, and the lack of trust. The Summer party is a conveniently distant memory, and much more violent season looms. The US is at a precipice. This nation has embraced a broad spectrum of bigotry, and this acid will devour our ribs, and heart.

We're at the cusp of a struggle that may be a cross between a Venezuela political struggle and a Rwandan genocide.  I hope I'm wrong, but we should come to terms with this possibility. Arnold stated that Nazi Germany was the most evil empire ever, but the percentage of murdered in Rwanda per capita was much higher.

Best wishes for 2021.  We earned it.

It's called elections.
I've survived Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama, and Trump. Rode a roller coaster this long. I'll weather Biden. I expect to survive with a good economy, a good stock market, return to civility, good fishing, all my guns, a better EPA, way better climate response, better civil rights, better immigration policies, better world standing, a re-adjustment of big tech for better competition, same for big ag, big pharma, big banking, big this and that, better taxing of those big business (which leads to getting out of this horrendous debt), more good fishing, better infrastructure, a better justice system, a better energy transformation, a better environment.

Pretty much. As long as people keep othering each other, it won't stop. Hypocrisy doesn't become anyone. We have forgotten that this is America, the melting pot. Except it doesn't melt any more. It just floats in clumps. And the media loves it. Nobody has any tolerance for anybody else any more, especially the ones with the Coexist stickers on their Subarus. Cancel culture is evil. We forget how much we have in common, while embracing the things we don't agree on.

I wish I was as optimistic. I see the next four years as bringing a tanked economy, $5 a gallon gas, massive unemployment, gun control that makes felons out of millions of law abiding Americans who just want to be left alone, unfettered immigration, complete control over free speech and opposing opinions, globalism in control of our country, and an America that is divided like never before and ready to start shooting at each other. I hope that you're right and I'm wrong.

I just walked outside, looked up the Back Creek valley at the stars.  I swear I heard them say, "I have given you CHNOPS: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur – all you need for life.  It is now up to you, and if you fuck it up, I really don't give a shit."

You need to chuck some magnesium, calcium and phosphate (plus more) before you're good to go.
But hey,  'c; .
Sulfur is the sneaky one. Can't build DNA without it.

I needed to sleep on some of the head scratching comments made last evening.   I, like many of you, worry about all our nation's warts, and often those worries border on the ridiculous.   

I have no recollection of personally "having orgasms over riots, looting, burning".  Any act of senseless destruction ain't good.  But comparing the looting of a 7-11 to what happened in D.C. last Wednesday makes absolutely no sense. 

Yes, I think we still have a problem with skin color.  I will not use the word race; I hate the fucking word.  I consider the way most use the word race a product of folk taxonomy, not science.  It is just another human construct. 

Yes, most of realize more whites are killed by police than blacks, but we also understand that blacks makeup 12-13% of our population and whites are ~64%.  And spouting the difference in the number of dead after praising the attributes of organizations like BLM in the same paragraph is just another "prototypical white boy response".    No, I do not have white guilt; I have human guilt.

We've all heard the same apocalyptic prognoses after every new elected president.  Will the predictions ever come true?  No idea, but I think we'll be ok.

Peace.
