    I'm sure you also have a hot take on Milo's statement yesterday:

    “I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight,”

     Yeah, then there is that.  Lets not focus on the alt-right though.

     Xactly what we need.  pump up the ignorant to nuclear levels of partisan hatred and create violence.   whip out the pitchforks and torches and repeat Salam history.  (call it a witchhunt).  except witches don't exist.

    It will be interesting to see how many of those that were so vocal that we shouldn’t have political statements on a bbq site a few days ago show up to castigate the OP this time. I’m sure in their mind they will have an easy distinction.

    Violence is never the answer to anything, but the main person who seems to be calling for that is a fairly obscure writer, not some party official.

    In any case, some of these Trump administration officials dining choices are ... interesting, for lack of a better term.  Carry yourself with the confidence of someone enforcing the nation's current immigration policy who has zero fear about the kitchen's preparation of their Mexican dinner.

    In my mind there is a difference in journalism and opinions expressed by a blogger, desperately posting for click bait.

    It seems, the OP has forgotten about the planned parenthood facilities that were bombed, and the people which were killed, as both a political and religious statement of the fundamentalist right. 

    There are so many other examples as well.

    There is crazy violence on both sides, and to think it is only one sided, is lunacy.

    Any violence is senseless, and anyone supporting such vile actions, are unstable, at best.

    It is true we have idiots in DC, but it is our fault they are there, or remain there.

    However, giving any thought or attention to an obscure post as this, only keeps idiots that blog like this guy hanging around.

    OK well maybe sometimes it is the answer.  Still not sure about that roundhouse though.

     Roundhouse was definitely required.  Otherwise you see the girly scratches on the big dudes throat when he falls backwards.  Dalton cannot rip a throat out.

    Rasmussen today shows that 31% of Americans think another Civil War is likely soon. Pretty crazy to think about.

    No one side is going to fight the federal government in anything other token violence. Our Armed Forces are not going to fight each other. A large portion of this country believes in a lot of crazy things.

    Speak for yourself. It was a movie, but I could do faster and higher than that. My buddy and main sparring partner was faster still. And the guy that taught me was a blur. We called it a reverse spin kick, BTW.

    Honest question, Have you ever witnessed or personally applied martial arts practically in a real fight? Not an MMA match but a real street fight. I mean specifically spin kicks and the like. Not grappling techniques or punches. I can't think of many scenario's where something like a round house to the back would work effectively. Most fights last 30 seconds or so probably. I guess better to be trained and not use it than not trained.

    I agree with this statement Ron, but it seems that true journalism has all but disappeared. 

    When was the last time you watched a hard news shows, when you had no idea what the anchor's opinion was?   The oldtime anchors are spinning in their graves.
