    Senator Proposes Deploying Military On Congress

    Yup. Not a joke. Right Wing war monger Lindsey Graham says the first thing he would do if elected President is send the military to Congress and force them to restore defense and intel cuts. Aka he's proposing a coup on congress as to force his agenda. In his words...

    "And here's the first thing I would do if I were president of the United States. I wouldn't let Congress leave town until we fix this. I would literally use the military to keep them in if I had to. We're not leaving town until we restore these defense cuts. We are not leaving town until we restore the intel cuts."

    As the article I'm posting says... he's not talking about keeping them there until there is an up and down vote allowing democracy to decide. He said until the cuts were restored. The only thing shocking about this is that he actually said it out loud. It's plain to see the right wing in America want to do away with all Government and form a right wing dictatorship.

    Not shocking that he said it out loud at all. The Right is spiraling out of contriol and showing us who they really are

    losing their collective mind

    True Kate. The recent anti-American letter to Iran is another example. It's treason. That little publicity ploy backfired.

    I lean to the right on some issues; but that's seriously fucked up.
    64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday. Somehow, it didn't make the news.

    Yeh, and I've just outlawed Russia and the bombing starts in five minutes. Blast from the past anyone?

    The only thing surprising about this to me is that he didn't tack on "until they repeal Obamacare and finally bring me some real Egyptian cotton sheets with a threadcount befitting my office - and a shrubbery, a nice one, not too big but with lots of leaves."

    Joke or no joke, I think it reveals a lot about the man's personality.

    Maybe it's time for a remake of "Seven Days in May".

    That was a good movie. No green screens or cgi, just good old fashioned acting. Fail-Safe was another flick that scared the crap out of me.

    It says nothing about his party no more than the knuckle headed crap members of your party have spouted out defines the democrats. When people who think like you can eventually get their minds wrapped around that will be when we can have a less partisan discussion.

    Anyone who defends what that war monger said is an extreme conservative and should stop trying to pretend that they aren't. I don't recall a Democrat Senator saying they would perform a coup on Congress to pass his agenda. I don't recall a republican doing it either.

    Folks say the darndest things sometimes don't they. Way too much traffic and barriers around there to get a decent size APC or Tank in.

    It's just not necessary to always push the narrative in that direction. And yes, I'm ignoring your vulgar PM.

    That's not conservative - that's batshit crazy.

    The guy is definitely no Abraham Lincoln - but he could be a Log Cabin Republican if he would finally poke his nose outside of that little ole closet.
