  1. Why do I get the impression that tRumpsky is just itching to turn all this into a political statement?

    • Hello Nan. Because he is. Last night he ordered the 82 airborne onto the streets of DC, with bayonets. 1,400 more on an hour readiness, meaning they must be ready to deploy with in an hours notice. He had military helicopters do a “show of force” over the protesters when ever they located any groups, which is when the helicopter hovers as low as it can to create hard winds and very loud noise which is used to disperse crowds. I told Ron this morning I think June 2 2020 is when the coup attempt was made in the US. Hugs

      • You could be right … although things seem to be quieting down today. In any case, there were SO MANY things wrong about this whole event!

        Now we wait and watch the COVID-19 numbers go up.

        • Hello Nan. Yes the numbers will go up. But even if tRump doesn’t move any farther with the military, the damage is done. His own Sec of Defense is saying not to use the military. Lower Deputies of Sec are resigning. A turn has happened. It can not be undone. Just like Kent State changed all future ways of acting and viewing of that times, this will do the same changing how our time is viewed and how much force will be allowed. If tRump and his kind succeed with this then the authoritarian way will be the standard. Flash banging peaceful crowds burning peoples skin will be the new standard. If tRump fails it will be that no way such actions will be tolerated in the US for several generations to come. This is going to prove how far into fascism the US has fallen. Be well, both Ron and I am very worried tonight. Hugs

          • I just read that the Secretary of Defense disagrees with Trump on the use of active duty troops to quell the protests … and of course, this has put him on shaky ground. You. Don’t. Disagree. With. Trump. And this is sooooo wrong on so many levels!! But as we’ve discussed before, this man must THINK he’s in charge, even though he really isn’t.

            • Hello Nan. Just before I went to bed last night I seen the headline that Secretary of Defense Esper walked that back after a meeting at the White House. As you say you do not disagree with the dear leader. The troops that were to be withdrawn are now being supplemented with more troops. Despot tRump is tripling down. Hugs
