    Scary as hell. I know a couple of Chicago cops and have a good friend who was one, but left due to disability. I fear for them. Absolute lunacy.

    Back in the 60s, Abbie Hoffman, who I seem to recall was one of the "Chicago 7", published a book titled "Steal This Book". That way he could make a fortune and still keep his "principals" intact.

    I'm sure it is wall to wall coverage on all networks since a firearm was involved.

    Right?

    Horn6721 Half of seeming clever is keeping your mouth shut.

    Whoever she is and wherever she works there must be consequences for her hate and threatening to burn a child alive.

    And this wasn't just a generic vile statement. She was talking about harming/killing a specific child. She may have bought herself a lot more trouble than she realized... The only thing going for her is that she expressed what her feelings were in the past, rather than a concrete plan to harm that child in the (near) future.

    Technicalities aside, I wouldn't want her working for me, living near me, or being around children, that's for sure.

    That was an AWFUL VILE post, but I'm tapping the brakes on whether this is the same "Mariah Bock" that works at Target. Look closely. Does anyone else see a Caucasian-looking young woman in the top picture and an Asian-looking young woman in the bottom picture-- both "Mariah Bock"...

    The vile poster bears accountability, but hold off on the angry mob with pitchforks going for a "Mariah Bock" who works at Target.

    Good point, and she should be able to clear it up easily if so.

    BUT...what is the likelihood of there being two people with THAT name in the same metropolitan area? It is not exactly Jane Smith...

    I agree, just also agreeing it's possible. Had a flight attendant last week who looks totally different when she took her mask off. So, even though Chop has a good point it could easily be the same person just because of that.

    What a novel idea
    Consequences for crime

    Florida's DeSantis on his Law & Order position

    "You loot, you're going to jail."

    "You throw a brick at a police officer, you're going to jail."

    "You tear down a monument, you're going to jail."

    "If you block traffic or harass people, you're going to jail."

    DeSantis is well positioned for a run in 2024.

    With a Trump win this year, he can use Trumps support in the nomination run. With a Trump loss, he can use the push back against Democrat over reach in 2021 and 22 for his re-election run in 22, then ride a big win there to the 24 race. Governor of the 3rd most populated state, and a swing state, is a good jump off point for the Presidency.

    Trump campaign has been playing YMCA by the Village People at the end of his rallies. I think he is trolling the rioters:

    I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground
    I said, young man, 'cause you're in a new town
    There's no need to be unhappy
    Young man, there's a place you can go
    I said, young man, when you're short on your dough
    You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
    Many ways to have a good time
    It's fun to stay at the YMCA
    It's fun to stay at the YMCA
    They have everything for you men to enjoy
    You can hang out with all the boys
    It's fun to stay at the YMCA
    It's fun to stay at the YMCA
    You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal
    You can do what ever you feel
    Young man, are you listening to me?
    I said, young man, what do you want to be?
    I said, young man, you can make real your dreams
    But you got to know this one thing

    You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal
    You can do what ever you feel
    Young man, I was once in your shoes
    I said, I was down and out with the blues
    I felt no man cared if I were alive
    I felt the whole world was so tight
    That's when someone came up to me
    And said, young man, take a walk up the street
    There's a place there called the YMCA
    They can start you back on your way

    It's fun to stay at the YMCA
    It's fun to stay at the YMCA

    Young man, young man, what do you wanna be?
    YMCA, you'll find it at the YMCA

    Young man, young man, put your pride on the shelf
    YMCA, and just go to the YMCA
    Young man, young man I was once in your shoes
    Young man, young man I was down with the blues, YMCA
