To be fair I wouldn't go near a Trump rally either but Bernie has the streak for unpredictable events. The others seem tame by comparison. Bloomberg even cut an ad about Bernie bros harassing people at events and online.

You arent kidding.  White Bernie Bros reportedly attacked an African American at one of his rallys for wearing a black guns matter shirt.

Even in progressive Hobart attacking kids wont fly.  They are looking at minimum of a year in prison, most likely 2.5, and everything they own taken in civil suit. Rumor is they had Bernie stickers on the car.

Indiana couple drove boys with Trump flags off road: police

A northwestern Indiana couple allegedly used a car to force two teenage boys off a road, angered that the twin brothers were riding bicycles adorned with flags supporting President Donald Trump, before ripping one of the sibling's flag from his bike, police said Friday.
...
According to a probable cause affidavit, the boys told officers that a vehicle with a man driving and woman passenger followed them before the male driver pulled up nearby and asked one of the boys “if they were Trump supporters” - to which the boy replied that they were.

The driver then swerved at the boys, forcing them onto roadside grass to avoid being struck, according to the affidavit. The driver followed the boys before exiting the car and tearing off the flag from one of the brother's bikes, the affidavit states.

The driver dropped the flag, which was affixed to the bike with fishing pole, ran back to his car and drove off, “but not before running the flag over,” it states.
...
In a video posted to Snapchat, allegedly by the couple of their encounter with the boy, shows “the driver turns the wheel sharply as if he saw the boys and wanted to hit them with the vehicle while yelling `ya'll better get home,'" according to the affidavit. A male's voice is then heard telling the female passenger “pull that flag down" in the video which shows the female trying to reach it through her window and her saying, “get closer."

“The female is then heard saying `ya'll scared, just like your president'' and `America is not great'" followed by an expletive, according to the affidavit.

In a second Snapchat video, Perry-Jones allegedly says, “Don't let me see you downtown" to one of the boys and threatens to beat him up.

Everyone think about your "public" image. Don't set yourself up for punishment by the crazies. My suggestion is to quietly go by the Democrat & Republican campaign offices, get a yard sign for a no-win candidate from each party. Stick the sign of the LOSING party on the edge of your yard by the street the night of the election. That way the angry people will think that you are on their side but you are too stupid to be a real threat to anyone. After the tempers calm, use the sign in your hydroponics tank.

Keep your true thoughts to yourself.

Well it's "Super Tuesday". That's not to say that we won't see some voting shenanigans as tempers flare. I have neighbors down the road from me where one side of the road is festooned with Bernie signs and the other side is equally kitted out with Mike Bloomberg signs. But, thankfully no issues of violence.

We should know, by the end of the day, what the breakdown of voting totals are in the primary. We'll see if one candidate can get the delegate total to be the party leader or if this will be a brokered convention in Milwaukee (which does scare me a little). Also bear in mind that 2 of the 3 front-runners aren't Democrats. Bernie is an "independent" and Bloomberg is a long time Republican so the party politics are a little messy and you can see lifelong Democrats reluctantly going to Biden retreating to at least a known quantity.

Getting past 2020 I have some real questions moving forward. What will the Republicans do in the wake of Trump? What happens as we inevitably see the loss of party leadership like McConnell and Pelosi (neither are spring chickens). I don't know if it comes to violence in the streets but the bumps in the road are clearly coming.

I will say I was a little surprised to see staff at my daughter's school wearing "I Voted" stickers. Now granted I live in Minnesota and we're all some flavor of Democrat up here but announcing you voted in a primary when only one party is having a primary is a little bit more of showing my hand than I'd be comfortable with. My parents instilled that you keep your vote private and announcing that you had a hand in the primary is about as far removed from the secret ballot as one can get.

It did strike me as odd.

Wow the Bernie shenanigans keep going. Bloomberg ducked out and threw his support to Biden. If you're not aware of the dirty tricks going on everyone who ducks out supports Biden and the only candidate to stick it out without a chance to win, Warren, keeps in the race because she splits with Sanders on the extreme end of the party.

I can't make a claim the Democrats are involved in electioneering Bernie out but if they were it wouldn't look any different. All the moderates are aligning behind Biden while they keep Warren in to leech Bernie support.

My friends and family back in Milwaukee are openly joking about buying fire extinguishers and upping their home insurance. Lots of concern about the DNC getting a little out of hand if they walk in with 2 potential candidates and go hammer and tongs between party establishment and a socialist outsider.

It isn't just Bernie.  Bloomberg wrote a big 'ole check to the party and word is they took a sizable chunk of that and dumped it in primary races against AOC PAC backed candidates.  It looks like they got wiped.  It is a full on fight against the democratic socialists.  Health related stocks are flying this morning

Oh, I'm seeing that locally. Bernie tapped Ilhan Omar to be his MN surrogate and Biden trounced him. They are conducting a purge.

Holy cow.  Schumer is essentially calling for attacks on Supreme Court justices.

Help avoiding the issues:

No yard signage
No stickers on my car
have a good food supply; now harder to do with zero MRE's or freeze dried items for sale.

Good gas mask that you could use for painting your car, or other items.  Also good safety glasses is also useful.

Good routes, road maps, etc - standard items in a good quality GHB
refresh your bail out bag
good first aide kit

A place to rent a Prius to fit in?

We just watched a coup in the Democrats. You remember how for something like 30 years the "pay to play" was the Clinton Foundation... That's gone and the new moneybags in town is Mike Bloomberg.

That's where I see a sustained risk. It's 2020 and the kingmakers in both parties are doing musical chairs. We're a couple heartbeats from losing both Mitch McConnell and Nancy Pelosi as leadership icons and where do you think each party goes to replace them? That's not the fear of a "fight it out in the streets" civil war. It's more the fear of a massive rudderless ship and a power vacuum at the top. We are dangerously close to a non-functional federal government.

No kidding. Just to get them to change the debate rules so he could be in them, he wrote a $400K check to national DNC and spread another $400k among state parties to go along with it.  That was just a first downpayment contribution, talk is total deal is for over a hundred million.  Now he just got them to change again to keep Tulsi Gabbard out of the next debate so as to help Biden.  The DNC is literally selling debate podiums.  The Bernie Bros are furious and it is looking more and more that violent protests are in the works.

I did not understand why Gabbert and Yang (while I might disagree with them) didn't get higher billing. Those were the only 2 in the field who articulated an agenda moving forward.

You have to really scratch your head looking at the Democrats these days. The rockstar coming out of the Obama admin was supposed to be Hillary Clinton. Retrenching back to Biden seems like they swung and missed and this is the best emergency option. I guess it's either that or we turn America into Venezuela.

I'm not really scared of Americans gunning it out in the streets; even with hot tempers we tend to back down. But I do worry about the lack of service when the feds are busy drawing guns on each other. I think the Mueller probe is the perfect metaphor for our failed government on all sides. It starts with wild rumors and ends with a doddering retiree who can't keep his own facts straight.

I guess as a person moving forward what gets me is not my neighbors who disagree but the federal Katrina response. We're not making things work; we're dysgenic on all sides.

I'm becoming increasingly of the opinion that they're just humoring Biden, this time, so they can get him out of the way.  Sort of ". . .it's his turn and we know he's going to lose, so why not do it now so he can't complain. . ."

Then again. . .maybe I'm just grasping at straws in disbelief that they can be that stupid.
