I'm just reliving the good times ... 6 January 2021.

Renewing old acquaintances.
Remember Larry Rendell Brock? Retired Air Force Lt. Col. with the zip-cuffs on the Senate floor?
The one who looks like an officer - which he was - giving orders to his subordinates during the insurrection?
He got indicted and charged. 7 counts. No trial or plea deal yet, but I hope the FBI/DOJ is pressuring him to talk. My bet is that he was in charge of a capture mission ... congresspeople...maybe Pence.
This guy took an oath to defend the US. Instead, he attacked us.

The trumpers are clueless. We know that. But their take on "Don't Look Up" proves it beyond doubt

Their response to "Don't Look Up" puts the needle on the clueless dial off the scale.

Here's some remarks from the ONE entry I could find on the Freepsite.
Literate conservatives, like National Review, see what's there and agree the movie is a spot-on satire about the trump cult... and that cult's intellect.
The trumpers think it's a slam on the Left.

"The left destroys their own arguments and beliefs in a film that I am pretty sure was meant as a reinforcement to them. I am sure it was meant as slam on Trump and his followers, but it really was the opposite.
In real life the “don’t look up” crowd are those who pimp Covid fear as a means of control."
"The Hunger Games was another one that backfired on the left. It was meant to target the evil republicans, but they didn’t realize how much it mirrored themselves."
"THIS is from lefties? Do they not realize this is exactly how they behave? Do they think they’re portraying the right? Did they wake up from their nonsense?"
"Seems like they shot themselves in the feet. Did they understand or did we take if wrong. I found it comical that the points they were making made more fun of how they behave."
"It’s no great surprise the left doesn’t see the humor because it unmasks their totalitarian bent. Parts of it had me laughing out loud because it was obviously made by leftists with absolutely no self awareness. If you can’t see Hillary in the amoral movie president, you need to put down the bong."

Hey.... Du'ers in cannabis-legal states...

Are you hearing of any robberies of pot shops?

It's an all-cash business, and from what I've seen, business is booming.
The banks are all tumescent about getting their hands on that money, but since it's still illegal Federally....

Any word on robberies... or why there isn't?

Went to freeperville to find their views on "Don't Look Up"...

Nothing. Nada. Zip.

I thought they'd be all over it.

Any of the RWNJ sources talking about it?

I've been reading DU posts about Harry Reid's letters to Comey...

... and posts asking why Garland hasn't acted bigtime.. and posts asking why indictments are not raining all over trump and his henchmen/women in Congress.

Why not accept the simple explanation: Fear?

The Powers That Be are afraid that if anything big happens...trump indictments or congressional member indictments, for example... it will start the shooting civil war that is on the near horizon.
The outcome is a foregone conclusion, of course, but the destabilization might kill the economy and send ripples all over the world.

OK... I'm screaming at the TeeVee..

David Muir of ABC is interviewing the President, and he's asking blame questions.
Not verbatim, but close... "Why didn't you see Omicron coming?"
Biden - to his credit - laughed and pointed out that NObody saw it coming, instead of saying something like... "It's a fucking virus, you moron! It wasn't HERE a couple of months ago because it didn't exist!"
WTAF????

Why was the candle factory in Mayfield KY...

..operating full blast - 110 people in the building - when all indications are that tornado warnings went out hours before?
Same with the Amazon warehouse.

Did those companies ignore the warnings and keep people in the buildings? The Teevee is saying that one super-tornado was on the ground for 200 miles. Were there any "take shelter" warnings?

NOT from a tornado area, so I don't know how people normally deal with tornado threats.

Oh... and Welcome to Climate Change.

Be careful out there! Or.... be very lucky out there.

Does this look like a disaster?
Nope...

"In what can only be described as a miracle, a driver is heading home with minor injuries after surviving a collision with a semi-truck near Mount Vernon, Washington.
Washington State Patrol Trooper Rocky Oliphant said the car – apparently this was once a Nissan Altima – was struck from behind by the truck, folded it in half, and then rolled on top of the car, crushing the vehicle, on the I-5., in Skagit County, WA."

"Dexter" fans will get it....

(Mods: I'm currently in FB prison for a week for getting snippy about the Rittenhouse verdict. If this violates DU "community standards", just let me know and I'll pull it. I don't want banned for having bad taste.)

A hypothetical question:

A black men - armed with an AR-15s - attends a MAGA rally, and is attacked. Could he open up and kill a few people in "self defense" and be found not guilty in a court?
