    ‘President Donald Trump suggested passing a law to make the burning of illegal flags during his speech at a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, lamenting the demonstrations he saw throughout the country...

    ...Trump told his supporters gathering in a half-filled arena.

    “And you know, we have to do something, Mr. Senator, we have two big senators, we have to make a law that if you burn the American flag, you go to prison for one year,” added the president, turning to Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe and James Lankford. “Jim and James, you know we have to do it. You know, they talk about free speech, and I believe in free speech. But that is blasphemy.”

    We should have elected a chimpanzee. They're smarter.

    I suggest Trump use the Constitution to read it instead of using it to roll whatever whack substance he smokes.

    I think the only ones who believe that and repeat it anymore are the ones in denial and have to tell themselves that so they don't have a mental breakdown.

    Fortunately a president as he has thoroughly demonstrated he just doesn't have the ambition, intelligence, or support to be a dictator. And it seems possible the excuses of desperation are finally starting to break his support. In two months the economy still won't be doing that good, covid will still be rampaging, people will still be dying, and as of now it looks like people are fed up with Trump, and are especially angered by his mentions of "military domination" against protestors and persistent divisiveness, instead of the traditional approach of trying to heal the nation. Big name Republicans are abandoning him, and even Bush Jr. is supporting Biden.
    With many Republicans abandoning that ship, the women vote looking to turn against Trump, and the latest bouts of racist police and protests might throw Trump's chances this time around. Especially if mail-in voting surges and more states do what California is and mailing a ballot to all registered voters.
    With the election only a few months out now, at this moment I'm leaning towards Biden winning. The BLM protesting at this time, it may very well become Trump's version of Hillary's email, especially as there is no shortage of white cops killing black men in this country. It happens late October/early November and Trump is done.

    If I’m honest, a lot of your politics look like fascism to me.

    Any chimpanzee you claim? That's quite a bold claim.

    Btw. I once had a boss who told me a chimp could do my job. So I did an analysis of how much it would cost to bring a chimpanzee into the office for a day.

    I got a raise.

    Still not making even close to what they would pay for a chimp. But you get what you pay for.

    I always thought of it more as a kind chaotic, nihilistic mobsterism. They're not disciplined, organized, or spartan enough to be considered fascists. Our political culture is completely devoid of any principles, other than "he who dies with the most toys wins."

    Compulsory flag idolatry is as creepy and cultish as it is unconstitutional.
