Default So, What Do You Think?

Part of me thinks that Trump is just stupid enough to actually believe there's going to be some kind of uprising in the next few hours' time, and that he will [somehow] still be President on January 21st.


I think it's more likely that he'll just skip the country within the next few hours' time, though. Or at least, try to skip the country.

Regardless, I expect that he and his staff are frantically destroying documents right now.


Personally, my hope is that, 24 hours from now, he will be in prison. Where he belongs.

Default Re: So, What Do You Think?

The past semester was ... rough. So far, this one doesn't look like it'll be much better. I've already got lots of students out on quarantine, and I expect it'll only get worse, now that school is back in session.

No matter how many times I badger, beg, or threaten them to wear their masks a significant number simply will not do it. (Many will grumble and put the masks on, but the instant I turn my back, pull them down again.) We've had lots of students and several staff get sick and have to be quarantined -- that no one on campus has died yet strikes me as nearly miraculous. Meanwhile, our Idiot President [I'm talking about the President of the college in this instance] still downplays the issue and insists that there's nothing to worry about, we're taking all precautions, and even if someone does get sick, it's no worse than a bad cold.

Ugh!

I still hold out hope that he'll be imprisoned, but I don't think it will happen quickly.

Today ... I'm expecting him board Air Force One as stated, but instead of flying to Mar-a-Shithole, he'll commandeer it and fly to Russia. Who will turn him away because they have no use for him any more.

I'm so glad he's gone - but definitely not forgotten. I can't wait till he gets slammed with lawsuits and criminal charges. Goodbye executive privilege!

The radio is playing Ray Charles' Hit The Road Jack. Incredibly appropriate.

I don't think he has the temperament for Moscow - exile life in Russia is usually pretty modest and muted (for as long as it lasts, at least). Riyadh sounds about right, though.

He's probably been told that he can't land in Scotland. Probably not Ireland, either. Dubai, perhaps? https://golfweek.usatoday.com/lists/...-donald-trump/
He doesn't own any in Russia.

There will be conditions in the prenup that limit Melania's options if she wants to see a cent.

I told Laura the psychologist that I talk to that I thought there wouldn't be violence today. The hard core are probably still raring to go, but I think lots of white people have a refractory period between racist outbursts. I think around the core group or hardened racists there is a layer of like enablers who talk about how they patriots and shit.

after what happened on the sixth, they need time to convince themselves that they are just once again. they need to invade some state capitols with no resistance. spin up new batshit theories via Q and so on in order to build resolve.

While I think the majority of Republicans are racist, a majority aren't such motivated racists that they want to commit terrorism themselves.


right now I am seeing lots of Republicans talk about how bad it was in 2017 ignoring the insurrection entirely and of course ignoring the preparedness that was in response to an insurrection. They will build back to critical mass though.

No, it's that the trap was sniffed out in time.
The deep state minions put a whole bunch of soldier-types and their vehicles and weapons all over the place, built fences and barricades, all out in plain sight, a week ahead, on fake MSM, all just to lure our brave and loyal warriors into their trap. Well, we showed them! Hah!
