I used to think that after five years of this corruption and Unconstitutional nightmare we would have come to a “we are not going to take it anymore” moment.

Looks like people are too cowed to stand against self ruination.

“I used to think that after five years of this corruption and Unconstitutional nightmare we would have come to a “we are not going to take it anymore” moment. Looks like people are too cowed to stand against self ruination.”

I have a theory on this. Those of us who “took to the streets” in ‘98 to protest the clintoon’s abuses of power are now 15 years older. It seems like every time I come to FR I see another oldtimer has passed or has health issues. Bottom line: If Congress won’t take action, it’s up to the people to MAKE them uphold the law — it’s clear to me that Congress will not do anything unless We The People get organized and do something more than sit at a keyboard complaining. Take to the streets like we did in 1998.

Yeah, well... there may be a problem. The younger people who have the energy and health to take to the streets are now the Millennial Generation. As a general rule, these are kids who grew up getting rid of their frustrations by banging away on a keyboard or playing video games instead of addressing a problem head-on. They don’t remember the power of “real-life” in-person protests in the 60’s and other times of social upheaval. They may not realize that some problems cannot be solved by a computer. They don’t even know what life is like without one.

Yeah, we have a problem, alright.
