You called UG a violent fascist just a half day ago, so it's not funny at all, really.

This is literally the Nazi playbook: define your scapegoat in such a way that it's desirable to kill them.

Biden 'would shut [country down]' to stop spread of COVID-19

Former Vice President Joe Biden said in an exclusive interview with ABC "World News Tonight" Anchor David Muir on Friday that as president, he would shut the country down to stop the spread of COVID-19 if the move was recommended to him by scientists.

“I would shut it down; I would listen to the scientists,” Biden told Muir Friday, alongside his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., during their first joint interview since officially becoming the Democratic Party’s presidential and vice presidential nominees. ...
This isn't going to go over very well with the business community. It also makes Biden look too reliant on some factions which may not yield balanced decisions. It's one thing to say he would've given more weight to scientists than Trump; but, another thing altogether saying he'll just go along with whatever the scientists say regardless of other consequences. I don't see this working to his advantage.

Urbane Guerrilla, I dedicate this video to you:

V, you have those rights you -- and me, and Undertoad, and so on -- can enforce. Since there are about three hundred and thirty million of us who can get equipped, a piece apiece, to do just that, the individual effort is still pretty light.

Now, who of the big boy candidates doesn't want that electorate enforcement capacity?

It is very clear. So very clear.

For a cleareyed instance, note that the founding ideas of the Republic -- written where we can still read them today, into the bargain -- sowed the seeds of slavery's demise. Frederick Douglass -- who has one fewer statue now than once he did, thanks to iconoclastic morons with *no* history -- believed this, and was actuated by this belief.

Read. The Federalist Papers are a good choice, and too neglected nowadays.

Where you'd stop with the regulation is another point needing examining.
And not yet getting that examination after this many days.

Don't you have a game / trail camera?

But then what would you do with it after you caught it? I think the rule is you can't slaughter it if it has a name.

I'm gonna put it up a tree.

There is a guy right on the border who to his misfortune has a billboard on the edge of his property. The Trumpets got the billboard so he hung a Biden banner next to his 'merica flag. The Biden banner was stolen off his front porch.

I guess it isn't just us, apparently it's all over rural PA. They aren't shooting us yet though.

The Chinese would like to help you by providing affordable signage:

2020 Joe Biden for President Garden Flag 30*45cm yard lawn sign Hot

The ad says these signs are "Hot"; so, they could be selling yours back to you!

I don't think the trail cam is a given without some hard thinking.
You may not want to know who it is.
Just be thankful there are closet Biden fans who cherish the banner but can't be seen buying one.
