    I see Trump as the issue with a clear and stated platform under Trump.

    Can Trump be controlled?

    Is Conman Trump willing and able to change, be a team player following a playbook, given his extreme narcissism?

    Nope, not at all.
    He does what he wants.

    The only thing that they may be able to do is talk him out of it at the moment in time.

    But he won’t be a team player.
    To him, it’s all about him.

    He’s not just a narcissist, he’s a megalomaniac.
    Truly

    Just doesn’t have brains like those in the comics
    Just pure audacity and the ability to con others.

    kramus what I might see Donor

    A strange, strange man. He’s willing to give 45* a tongue bath, but is afraid to be in the same room as any woman who’s not his wife.

    They should have said yes, just give NASA the budget the DOD has...

    It would take decades to find the right object to put at I think the L4 Lagrange point to apply some gravitational pull, and it would be even harder to get the rockets and fuel onboard this massive object to move it into the right position.

    That’s hilarious :D

    However, I don’t even want to speculate
    Many get stuck on an idea, whether good or not...even yrs after

    And don’t want even think of the consequences of moving the moon.
    Geez talk about humans affecting climate change

    That would be a worse black hole of funds than the new F-35 fighter. (And I’m all about spending as much possible on NASA...I’m still pissed about letting the Shuttle fade away) :rolleyes:

    Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorn Casually Suggests Armed Citizens Should Overthrow the Government — Vanity Fair

    What I want to know, is when are they going to put these “Nazi” wanna be’s in jail???

    I’m all about freedom of speech
    But sedition IS against the law.

    You’re not aloud to yell “fire” in a crowded theater
    Not should you be allowed to suggest violence.

    Although, I will say this…
    IF they do want to go against the US government
    (especially now that they’re warned)
    They may be in for a surprise.

    All their machine guns are no match for the military, national guard or even larger police force.
    It is NOT the same thing as when our nation was founded and the 2nd amendment put in place.

    Hell, it’s not even the same as the Civil War, WWI or WWII…

    Good luck
    They know you’re coming now
    You may be safer in jail.

    Cawthorn said some stupid things, but I'm not seeing anything that justifies the title of the article. Very Vaguely Suggests, or better yet Makes Ambigious Statements, perhaps.

    Anyone here familiar with my posts knows I don't support many Republican politicians, or the GOP in general. I think anyone promoting, or even supporting (including silent consent), sedition needs to be arrested and put on trial.

    A radical left wing movement has a certain appeal, but....no, not in our current volatile political climate.
