There is a peaceful way to deal with Trump and tonights firing.

Other countries do it.

Nation wide strike.

Say home for a week.

The bastards will get tired Trump real fast.

Just stay home.

No buying anything.

The rich bastards will start to see the dollar go down and stock market.

We have the power we just got to use it.

My father was a union man and there is power in us standing together.

No body has to be killed just stay home.

2. We have power then all rich bastards.

Hell just after two days the dollar would drop.

Like my daddy said you have hit them in the pocket book.

3. Unfortunately, for many this is simply an impractical suggestion

Though I am of a mind to agree w/ you, sir, if done w/ sufficient numbers only because it might actually have a significant impact. However, for anyone living paycheck to paycheck, the idea of staying home for a week just won't pay the bills. Like it on not, most are not unionized, and like Mr Comey, work only at the pleasure of their boss. I wish it weren't so.

4. I understand that.

It may come down to it.

Life under a dictator will not easy either.

At some point if Trump and company are not removed life will be a living hell.

We can already see some their blue prints.

10. Why not wish for talking llamas or free waffles? They are as likely to happen.

Better course would be for everyone to contact their 2 senators and 1 congressperson. Demand a special independent prosecutor.

11. Really think that will work.

The republicans are in charge of Congress.

Nothing is going to happen.

Putin is in charge of the white house.

Calling Congress will not work now.

The fox is in the hen house.

12. A general strike is a bold move but perhaps too scary for most Americans however

There is an alternative it slower but will eventually work. Every left- leaning person can cut the discretionary spending by 10% or more. Do you really need a new TV or car in the next year? Can you cut the number of times you eat out? Perhaps you can use less electricity or water? Surely we can find ways to cut our spending

13. And by the way

If your mother is also left-leaning, perhaps he would be willing to forgo flowers and dinner out this Sunday. Of course, if he is a Trump supporter if you're still on the hook
