Yeah but you were implying that the US is leaning more left in a way where the NDP will be the new Republicans? I just don't agree with that personally.

 

No I just don't deal in absolutes where backing out is inherently a terrible or awful decision. I believe that calling them out and garnering support that way can lead to reform. It all depends how the dominoes fall afterwards.

As protesters arrived at Pennsylvania Avenue/Lafayette Park, the White House has been locked down. 

The doors to the White House briefing room, where reporters have their offices have also been locked and Secret Service officers are not letting anyone off White House grounds.

There were members of the press corps around the press entrance but they were just cleared out and have been brought back to the White House press briefing room.

You have to play the game with the cards you are dealt. You can't push for meaningful reform while being on the outside. Walking away is easy, also known as "I take no responsibility". You can make a big show of it and claim moral superiority but it doesn't change facts that you now have no leverage. 

Leverage. Key word.

 

By getting out of all these world organizations, America loses mass Global leverage.

 

And that is exactly what the Red Square wants.

I think it can be possible. Like I mention in another post I don't deal in absolutes. If there's a will there's a way. That said in a worse case scenario yeah it can be bad. But if you're able to garner support from backing out then you can have a winning battle.

 

Also with governments, when you play this sort of game(particularly as a powerhouse country), you run the risk of running your teeth too deep into corruption that it starts to taste good. Then you become the corruption.

Sure just was suggesting that they may have some left. Big items.

Then again, really I was just pouring cold water on his weak joke. Unless he lives in Minny...then maybe it made sense.

Nothing will come of this. Similarly to school shootings. Rinse and repeat. The protesters huff and puff but they eventually fade out.

Media all about the doom and gloom. Turn off the TV, folks. Like George Carlin said - it's bad for ya!

Reminds me of the 2011 riots. Cleaning up isn't sexy to the media as people smashing things.

White cops kill black people for breathing. 
 

Caught on film. 
 

White cops start riots to shift social conversation to protests.

 

And they’re really gonna vote in 4 more years of the guy who promoted this :lol:
