Well, I guess it is time for the crazies to make their appearances.....


Mr Rosenfeld - who waived his right to remain silent - was charged with two counts of manufacturing and transporting explosives on Wednesday, the prosecutors say.
"Had he been successful, Rosenfeld's alleged plot could have claimed the lives of innocent bystanders and caused untold destruction," said Assistant Director-in-Charge William Sweeney of the New York Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
"Fortunately, his plans were thwarted by the quick action of a concerned citizen and the diligent work of a host of our law enforcement partners and the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force," he added.


He could be jailed for up to 20 years......
Should get life IMHO.


They say he wanted to draw attention to his belief in "sortition" - a political theory that advocates the random selection of government officials.

Think this is only the beginning?

Rand Paul could be right.

Be extra careful who you talk to about candidates.

In governance, sortition is the selection of political officials as a random sample from a larger pool of candidates. Sortition ensured all competent and interested parties had an equal chance of holding public office.

I had to look it up as I had never heard of it. I prefer a Republic myself. This sortition is a form of straight Democracy.

www.sortitionfoundation.org...



Each table discusses proposals, with a facilitator making sure no one dominates and everyone gets his or her say, and a note-taker typing comments and decisions into a computer. A "theme team" can see what every table is discussing and summarises the output, which is then presented to the entire assembly, who have individual voting keypads to prioritise results. In this way the assembly can come to large group decisions.

Stratified random sampling enures that participants accurately reflect the community they are drawn from, unlike open meetings where often only socially privileged or more vocal people attend and dominate discussions. Stratified random sampling ensures that half the participants are women and half men, with proportional representation for the young and old, and across all geographical areas and educational levels.

If this assembly formed a legislative parliament, then every 6 months or year a part of the assembly (say, one quarter) would be replaced with people randomly selected from the electoral roll, ensuring the assembly remained representative of the general populace. These representatives would be paid as politicians are paid now, and would serve one single term in office of two-four years.

Not sure if you’re being sarcastic but 200 pounds of even a low order explosive is no joke especially combined with shrapnel.

2 pounds is roughly a claymore.

20 pounds is less than the Boston bombing.

200 pounds is... horrific.

Will anyone be held accountable?

That's a view that belongs to a period prior to the election as leader, of a man who favours the every man for himself approach, and the total demolition of decorum and standards of etiquette.

Those who voted Trump, created a scenario in which the political correctness that kept people from thinking "This talking thing is not working any more, better act instead", is now frowned upon. This is the inevitable result.

He is a symptom of the US political climate, not the cause.

Anyone who wants to put all the negative blame on Trump for America's woes washes the hands of previous administratons, and the wrongdoings they did to our nation.

No it doesn't.

Look here. Prior administrations messed up financially, morally, and technically on lots of occasions. But none of them, not a one, not a single one, contributed to the dissolution of basic respect. No American President in living memory, has run on the notion that being rude to people, denying people their rights, taking steps backwards in terms of equality and decency towards ones common man, is a good idea.

Trump and his hangers on, those who support him materially, those who supported him with their votes, those who support him as his administration, are no longer and will never again be, part of a polite, even tempered debate space, or indeed a nation which values the notions of decorum and good conduct. They advocated and won for themselves, a safe space to be cretins in, and the thing will come home to roost eventually. Its a matter of time before the death of political correctness in the backwater they are creating, will come to bite them in the arse, and when they complain, they will have not a leg to stand on.

They have GUARANTEED that violence and force will replace the political correctness and politeness that used to be the norm, by making polite conversation impossible and normalising total disrespect.

Johnson started the major initiative in Vietnam, which showed what we think of other nations adopting a system of governing we don't support, and the willingness to sacrifice our young for the mission of stopping that.

Nixon was an alleged racist and anti-Semite according to a WaPo article and tapes supporting it.

Reagan started the war on drugs, changing the language on how we plan to address policy regarding our own people, a war. This has helped lay the foundation for the prison industrial complex. He also ended the good neighbor policy in South America.

Obama didn't rewrite the rules, but he weaponized existing ones to go after whistleblowers, and the journalists who tried to conceal their identity. He ramped up the campaign of indiscriminate drone strikes that many analysts believe help fuel the insurgency to our missions abroad.

I purposefully used these examples to try and bridge gaps in time, and use both sides of the isle to prove a point.

His policy is nothing new. Some may see it as extreme versions of other ways it was used in the passed, and in many cases they are right.

So your saying that just because he doesn't pander and BS he is the worse? I'm not a Trump supporter but that is a position of emotion.

That's why we're here, people vote for the best panderer, and if they talk their way through lying and reversing their platform, so be it, as long as we look good.

Trump will be gone soon, and you'll see the corporate funded partisan hacks you're used to. Everyone will be relieved to have the establishment that makes us feel cozy and good because they speak like Obama while they conduct their war escapades.

You successfully posted the only song by A Perfect Circle that I enjoyed as much as a Tool song.

Fitting too, kudos.

Excuses. Worse, dangerous excuses.

People are responsible for their own behavior. Just because some people think Trump is "mean" it does not follow that they get to riot and exercise mob rule. And if you want to talk about who is being rude and encouraging disrespect...

Representative Maxine Waters calling for harassment of Trump administration officials:


Remember Madonna wants to blow up the White House?


Ex-Attorney General and potential Presidential Candidate Eric Holder: When they go low, we kick 'em!


Senator Cory Booker wants Democrats to "get up in Republican's faces.":


Or how about Hillary? She says people can't be civil to Trump supporters:


But all that means nothing because Trump is mean? Really?

I know what you're doing... you're spouting the same old vitriol you always do, in hopes of getting a few folks upset and getting some yucks. It's probably all funny to you. But we have a real issue here, with Sarah Sanders and Ted Cruz being chased out of restaurants, rioters throwing their temper fits across the country and trying to call it "protesting," rowdy mobs interfering with government operations, evidence of illegal spying by the US government under Democratic rule, Rand Paul viciously beaten in his front yard, Steve Scalise still having trouble walking after being shot for being a Republican, vehicles being torched because they have Trump stickers, the overt denial of due process to men because they're male, and a host of other examples of increasing violence and criminality on the part of the DNC and it's supporters too numerous to mention.

So laugh it up. Your assertion is beyond despicable, beyond deplorable, and beyond any semblance of civilized demeanor, your impressive vocabulary notwithstanding. I know you don't care, but I am still going to call you out for your inhumanity.
