That was touching

Americans can be quite noble and generous when they aren’t constantly being whipped into a frenzy of hate and fear.

Our immediate problem is fighting off the ongoing attempt to overthrow our government.

Once that is accomplished, the biggest problem we have as a nation is the dishonest, hateful, inflammatory right wing echo chamber.

It has deepened our divisions and poisoned so many minds with disinformation.

I believe in a free press, but this is a propaganda machine that should not be allowed to continue unchecked.

We need to reinstate the fairness doctrine or regulate propaganda disguised as news and opinion.

Trump would never have come to power without talk radio.

How about impeachment rallies in DC twice a month until the orange stain is removed?

I've never organized anything like before this but as fired up and angry as many people are, I bet we could draw a million people to D.C. Starting in March or April, when it's not ridiculously cold.

Start drawing huge crowds and maybe our law makers would do the right thing.

It would be a great forum for talking about epionage, lying, collusion and conspiracy.

Oh, and don't forget laundering money for Russian mobsters.

We might be able to change the national conversation and untrack Orange Mussolini's fascist agenda.

We could make it clear that there is nothing normal about this situation.

Thoughts, comments, advice from experienced organizers?

A lot of suburban white women who voted for Republicans in the past flipped

And voted for Doug Jones.

This was also a factor in the VA elections in 2017 and is why it gets mentioned like it does in the Alabama special election news stories.

A huge turnout of black voters was necessary for Jones to win, and huge thanks to the black community for getting out the vote.

I don’t see anyone trying to minimize the importance of black turnout.

And I’m not trying to defend anybody crazy enough to vote for Roy Moore, female or male.

But without the millennials, the soccer moms and unenthusiastic Republicans staying home, Jones loses anyway.

The soccer moms voting Democratic this year first in VA and then in Alabama are a sign of hope that the Democratics will flip a number of suburban Congressional seats next fall that have been safe Republican seats.

This is sad, but predictable

I’m sorry people were injured.

But this is exactly what happens when enough people start running around with loaded guns.

In this instance it was an accident with limited casualties and no deaths.

One day, there will be a “bad guy with a gun” in some public place, maybe the mall, that shoots his weapon.

A “good guy with a gun” will be there and take matters into his own hands and fire back. Other bystanders will be armed and fire back.

It’s entirely possible for a full blown gunfight to break out in a mall like this.

God only knows how many people will be hit by “friendly fire” from one of the “good guys” in a scenario like this.
