Trump Statue

Artists are submitting proposals for a statue of trump.
I guess it should be tall enough so vandals cant reach it, and solid enough that it can't be pulled down.
So far they have three proposals.

I guess they would properly be called Trumps statues of limitations.

These are actually performance art. Damn clever.

The second one is off by a mile. As a supreme narcissist he wouldn't even have love for a teddy bear. He might sexually assualt a teddy bear, but he'd never cuddle one.

Your civil liberties are in better shape than they've been in half a century, and will remain so as long as you don't have Democrats in office. You do need to have an enlightened understanding to figure that out, though -- and no fan of the nondemocracy of the deep state.

The Trump administration has quite simply tried its best to vandalize the United States and has been very successful.
Other Republican officials at the Federal and state level have shamelessly abetted this effort.

I can't think of one good thing they have done. Can you?

FAR be it from me to praise Trump in general, but I think it's important to be honest about good things even when bad people do them. So I will say that Trump signed the bump stock ban--which the NRA was against and he certainly could have rejected--and that was a Good Thing(TM).

Yep - because nothing screams civil liberties like federal troops pepper spraying a wall of mums and bundling teenagers into unmarked cars.



You disappoint me UG. I knew you were a die hard for civil liberties but I always assumed you wanted those liberties for everyone not just your own side.

This made me tear up - that line of veterans. That's kind of beautiful.

That video shows only a handful of veterans when over 28,000 veterans live in Portland. That don't impress me much.
