    I dunno', Bodhi. While that's a tough one, I've still got to say 'no'. I don't agree with using the military against the citizenry, and I won't let the ends justify the means. We either stand right, or we don't. No military acting against the citizens. We police ourselves.

    That makes it to late.

    If invoked he will only increase strife and mayhem

    The key question is who are the enemy? Dictators know. Trump knows. But I say they're wrong. And all I have is the law to protect me and my point of view. That's why people like Trump and you are scary.

    They love pointing out Democrats were racists going back to the civil war. Then they turn around and defend the statues of those Democrats.

    Nobody ever said racism was sane.

    My gut feeling is this might panic Indies, but I can't quantify it.

    Oh my.
    I was ridiculed for saying this in 2017. I still hope and pray Iím wrong. Who knows in 155 days, with each new day getting exponentially worse with trumpís political virus. People still canít accept let alone deal with the Fact that we're in The COVID Century.

    Iím sure youíre seeing trumpís dictator friends Vlad and Xi trashing the USA Online. Heís certainly taking pages out of Dictator 101 at trump univ. Weíve never been more exposed.

    If we had the internet and 24/7 satellite media in 1968 when I was 14, today is epically worse simply because of the ramifications of and from COVID.

    Did you see what the church's Bishop said? Priceless:

    Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde:
    "The president just used Bible and one of the churches of my diocese without permission as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus and everything our churches stand for.

    I am outraged. The president did not pray ,or acknowledge the agony of people of color who wonder if people in power.

    We distance ourselves from the incendiary language of this president. We align ourselves with justice."
