Well I spent about 5 hours with Trumpsters and anit trumpsters. I never didn find anyone who really knew anything about Trump or why they liked him. The anti Trump Blacks matter folks were dumb as that pile of horse shit I interviewed. All in all I feel a deep sense of "Oh shit the country is fucked" feeling. The trumpsters just love him and haven't a clue why. Craig Henne FB
The United States engaged in the War on Drugs for the same reason it passed Alcohol Prohibition—to save people from themselves. However, people still used intoxicants anyway.

I look around my own average, ordinary neighborhood of people going about their average, ordinary businesses. And I see solid people with good sense who could be counted on. I see a nurse and a volunteer fireman. I see people with food pantries and generators. I see people with multiple firearms. But also people with abundant connections in local leadership and the local supply line. I see people who keep their mouths shut, but also share important matters in common.
I don’t know when, where, or even whether another “Lexington moment” will come to this country. But I do know that these people don’t need anybody to groom and recruit them. Clair Wolfe

These quesions are irrelevent and immaterial, redundant and ridiculous. Most barely qualify for "rhetorical". We are beyond asking questions - especially since we already know the answers to most --- and herein lies the rub:The "answers" solve the "problem". With that information - the knowledge that solves the problem, apply the solution - tacitly, implicitly then transfers to you.True, only agreement to a moral imperitive might actually obligate one to act -- but, if nothing else, it forbids one from ever asking the question again - or to marvel that the problem still exists. James Bovard’s blog
"I find Donald Trump appalling and abhorrent. My only right is to be appalled and disgusted — and to express myself. Not to stop the Donald’s speech or to prevent others from hearing it." Unknown FB
