Seriously.  

Toby read a piece (a couple of days ago, before this) that the US was already in a civil war, just without opposing armies.  Stuff like this makes me think, yes, that's correct.

The CBC (Canadian) reporter just got surrounded by 'protestors' (if I may refer to those dicks like that) and the CBC cut her feed to get her out of there.

this is insanity.  I'm going to take a pause from work in order to watch the news for 10 minutes. 

My boss told us it's ok if we can't focus because of the news today, it's ok to take work time to watch, and cancelled our meetings because it was too upsetting for everyone.  I think he went up a few notches in my opinion.  However, I also cannot watch any longer.  So many "that will never happen" things have happened this year my OCD brain that needs control over everything is close to melting.

that's a really good response.  My former employer did things that were similar (II separated from them for entirely different reasons).  My current employer is largely about physical safety (making sure that people who work in DC don't do it and work from home).  Now that we're all out of the building, they're starting to worry about ore emotional stuff.

@Gearhead - Did you notice - He said "Three billion bits of well-done steak". There were only three billion of us then. Now we're pushing eight billion, and the world is a far, far bigger human powderkeg than it was back then. And on Wednesday one imbecile lit a fuse just because he could.

Sort of a fitting end to Trump's Presidency. Horrific and embarrassing. If America was founded after the tea party that seemed more like a meth party. I never thought Trump was like Hitler, Mussolini maybe, but what's more worrying is that there's people who support him despite hearing the nonsense he's come out with for four years, because it's fake news and your country is run by satanic pedophiles. He doesn't have the intelligence or ideological motivation of Hitler, luckily, he was just a dumb narcissist who thought everyone who isn't him is inferior and needed constant validation from whatever source it came from. White supremacists like me? Well there are good people on both sides. More worrying than the tangerine fuckwit is that people supported him and attempted a poorly organised coup in his name. There's an audience there for racist, anti-democratic conspiracy theorists which someone more intelligent that Trump could exploit. I hope not. Just a historical blip which future generations will be able to laugh about. Covfefe. Maybe impeachment is a bad idea. Best way to punish him would be to ignore him, because little Donny thrives on attention. I'm not American and I know the British political landscape is far from perfect. Don't get me started on that shit. So glad this fucker got fired.

No. The impeachment is absolutely necessary. It’s not about punishing him personally - the last one certainly didn’t leave him any humbler - but rather, it is intended to accomplish two critical things. 1: To demonstrate that there are consequences for any Chief Executive for failing to uphold the Constitution; and 2: To disqualify Trump from ever holding any public office again, and thus prevent him from fomenting rebellion on the promise of a return to power in four years. For the latter to work, the Senate must convict him, and this is still uncertain, but not hopeless.

Those men and women who breached the Capitol are in rebellion against the Constitution and must be treated as rebels. The oath I took on entering Federal service was to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic - they are the definition of domestic enemies of the Constitution. For those in other countries who don’t quite grasp Americans’ obsession with our Constitution, it is the absolute bedrock foundation of our society, the guarantee of our rights and freedoms, and has endured for 245 years because it works to keep a vast and diverse nation in the control of its people rather than autocrats and tyrants.

Ironically, one of our most heinous rebels, John Wilkes Booth, as he assassinated President Abraham Lincoln, cried, “Sic semper tyrannis!” - Thus always to tyrants! He had it wrong. Today, this is the way it must be done. The impeachment is necessary. Sic semper tyrannis, Donald Trump.
