Economic sanctions...

Cut his water, electricity, etc... until he pays his bills. No confrontation.

Actually, it will come in the form of a list of things we'd...

expect from any Dem President. Of couse, that list would omit the things that really make THIS Dem President very agreeable to the very people his cheerleaders hate so much.

To paraphrase Jeff Foxworthy, You might not be a Democrat when you lose objectivity.

Settle down...An argument predicated on obstruction can be turned on its face...

If moving to the right is a proven path of failure, at some point, start DEMANDING MORE!!!! In so doing, you'll energize your base. The alternative, you risk losing your base. That's exactly what's played out.

Tweeted the BLM (exactly 140 characters link included)

@BLMNational Can you please see to it that Eric Parker of Idaho is arrested for aiming his gun at federal officers? http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2014/04/the-irony-of-cliven-bundys-unconstitutional-stand/360587/

also Tweeted ThinkProgress, The Nation, Harry Reid, and many, many more...

We agree, it's not about Hannity, it's about law enforcement...

Can you imagine letting liberals get away with this?

I'm afraid MM thinks letting law enforcement get bullied AT THE WHITE HOUSE is just dandy, too.

If you understand implicity, I was very clear...

When I say "otherwise," I'm implying that this was acceptable action IF AND ONLY IF they knock on doors this week. If not, it sends an irresponsible and dangerous message. File this under: give them an inch and they take a mile. Happens on Wall Street, too. No punishment, "Fuck it, I'll take more next time!"

I posited my question to you to see if you would have taken a different position had there been adequate reinforcement, but you didn't want to answer that. Instead, you chose to opt out and take a "since it can't happen I won't answer" position.

OK, adequate BLM (or whatever local or state) presence and you're in charge. What's your call?

In case you didn't see the video.

I'm tired of seeing liberals get beaten and pepper sprayed and arrested whether they are provocateurs or NOT. I'm frustrated if that doesn't bother you, too.

Awesome, but that's an extremely rare stance around here.

I never even thought about it that way.

Hillary supporters, would you vote for McCain, Romney, Jeb, Christie.. if she loses the primary?

But, that's interesting, but beside the point.

Please explain why YOU bypass the Democratic primary?

It's habitual with Hillary supports. The thread about Hillary's vote on the Iraq War is a perfect, but not an isolated, example.

Hillary supporters always want to divert the argument, and reframe it as, "Would you rather have McCain as president?"

Wow! Talk about spiking the ball before reaching the endzone!!!

No, virtually NO ONE at DU would vote for McCain, Romeny, Jeb, etc.. instead of Hillary.

But many of us would vote for another Democrat over Hillary.

I gave them some perspective last night...

Want to see what a police state REALLY looks like? And this will be good for y'all to see what you'll be up against when you decide to go "full militia" on the state. I was in the middle of this NATO summit protest in Chicago in 2012. None of us were armed. But this is what the city of Chicago unleashed on us.

Perspective is everything.
