I rather American picked up a PC mouse than pickup a gun.

As long as they keep it contained to venting, and not escalate it to shooting, I'm fine with it.

Unfortunately though, there too many gullible angry and armed Americans.

The Cut: What We Know About the Plot to Kidnap Gretchen Whitmer

...we have learned that she was the subject of a foiled kidnapping scheme. On October 8, the Justice Department announced that it had thwarted an elaborate plot to snatch Governor Whitmer from her vacation home and forcibly overthrow the Michigan state government.

In total, 14 men, characterized as “violent extremists,” have been arrested. And now, six of them have been indicted on a federal kidnapping conspiracy charge...

...the alleged conspirators met at a Second Amendment, the right to bear arms, rally in June, which they followed up with a meeting; there, “several members talked about murdering ‘tyrants’ or ‘taking’ a sitting governor.” However, they soon realized “they needed to increase their numbers” to pull off their plans, impelling one individual to reach out to the Michigan militia group Wolverine Watchmen, requesting backup.

The next month, per the affidavit, the alleged plotters participated in combat drills and additionally attempted to make an explosive device, which they later detonated “to test its anti-personnel effectiveness.” According to the Feds, they also discussed kidnapping Whitmer at her vacation home in northern Michigan and then taking her to a “secure location” in Wisconsin where they would put her on “trial” for treason. “[Whitmer] has no checks and balances at all,” one conspirator allegedly said. “She has uncontrolled power right now. All good things must come to an end.”...

Trumpers are deplorable: "Trump Supporters Mock Biden Visit to Family Grave on Anniversary of Deadly Crash"

 

 

Some of President Donald Trump's most ardent supporters reacted to the Biden family visiting the graves of deceased relatives Friday by accusing the president-elect of "looking for votes" in a cemetery.

 

"Joe Biden makes last minute trip to cemetery to rally up deceased voters," reads a post-turned-meme that climbed to the top of Reddit's largest pro-Trump group Friday evening. The mockery comes as Trump urged his most hard-line supporters to join a "wild" protest on January 6 in Washington, D.C. in his latest desperate attempt to overturn the U.S. election results.

 

"[Biden's] wearing a mask in the cemetery thanking all those voters," wrote Robert Conder, an Indiana man, on the WLKY-TV Facebook page that shared the story of the family's cemetery visit. Conder and dozens of other Trump supporter remarks were immediately chastised by people calling for a "basic respect for human life."

 

Some Biden backers questioned how the comments could be made by Trump supporters who describe themselves as Christians. Many Trump backers accused Biden of infidelity at the time of his wife's death in 1972, just as the 29-year-old Biden was elected to his first term in the U.S. Senate. Numerous top comments on dozens of local news pages even questioned the "honest evidence" of how Biden's family was killed in the 1972 car crash.

I bet this was no doubt a typical, fun-filled Trump staff meeting:

I bet it was full of topics of importance, right? (coronavirus? the cratering economy?) No! Let's talk about how to pretend he "won the election" for the umpteenth time and figure out how to game the system to show he did it! That's what every American is 100% occupied with right at this second, I'm sure 🙄

Just when you think it can't get any worse in the US, you see stuff like this:

 

 

The wedding photographer had already spent an hour or two inside with the unmasked wedding party when one of the bridesmaids approached her. The woman thanked her for still showing up, considering “everything that’s going on with the groom.”

 

When the photographer asked what she meant by that, the bridesmaid said the groom had tested positive for the coronavirus the day before. “She was looking for me to be like, ‘Oh, that’s crazy,’ like I was going to agree with her that it was fine,” the photographer recalls. “So I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ And she was like, ‘Oh, no, no, no, don’t freak out. He doesn’t have symptoms. He’s fine.’ ”

 

The photographer, who has asthma and three kids, left with her assistant before the night was over. Her exit was tense. The wedding planner said it was the most unprofessional thing she’d ever seen. Bridesmaids accused her of heartlessly ruining an innocent woman’s wedding day. She recalls one bridesmaid telling her, “I’m a teacher. I have fourteen students. If I’m willing to risk it, why aren’t you?” Another said everyone was going to get COVID eventually, so what was the big deal? The friend of the bride who’d spilled the beans cried about being the “worst bridesmaid ever.”

 

After the photographer left, she canceled her Thanksgiving plans with family, sent her kids to relatives’ houses so they wouldn’t get sick, and informed the brides of her upcoming weddings that she’d be subcontracting to other shooters. A few days later she started to feel sick and, sure enough, tested positive for the coronavirus. She informed the couple. “But they didn’t care,” she says. They didn’t offer to compensate her for the test, nor did they apologize for getting her sick.

 

[...]

 

“I would say about fifty percent of the weddings I’ve shot, there’s been no masks at all. It’s like we’re living in the pre-COVID parallel universe,” one photographer told me. “I’ve been in hotel ballrooms inside, and it’s been packed like sardines, and everyone’s having a great time. No one’s wearing masks. I’m there as the photographer documenting the reception, and there’s sweat flying, and it’s hot, and the music’s blaring, and the fan’s on, and I’m just like, ‘Well, the odds are that one of every ten people here have COVID and don’t realize it.’ ”

 

 

It goes on, and just gets worse and worse. "I'm willing to risk the lives of the families of fourteen children, so why don't you want to risk your family's life?".

I actually feel sorry for Joe. He's going to have a big hill to climb trying to overcome people who have such self-centred selfish attitudes like that.

 

I don't see America being a "team of 328 million" like we were with 5 million here, all in the name of flattening the curve.

 

Trump has a lot to answer for, but of course he won't be doing anything of the sort.

They're not even fat by American standards. I'd say they're average.

The self-reported average weights of a woman is 159 lbs, 72 KG

of a man 191 lbs, 87 KG

I don't know that they are intentionally being selfish and self-centered (at least not all of them). It seems to be extreme ignorance, and borderline brainwashing from a year of their own governments propaganda playing down the severity of the crisis.

 

A lot of these people probably only consume the likes of Fox News for "information".

New York Times: Ad Spending Soars in Georgia Races With Stakes Far Beyond Georgia

With control of the Senate up for grabs, the two Georgia runoff races have come to feel more like national elections than statewide ones.

...The ad wars in Georgia’s two Senate races, which have soared past the $450 million mark and saturated the airwaves at previously unheard-of levels, reflect the stakes of one of the most unusual special elections in American history — the opportunity to vote for control of the Senate through two statewide races, held at the same time, with a new administration’s agenda hanging in the balance.

What began as an intensely negative, mudslinging ad campaign is now taking on increasingly national messages — that the Senate, and therefore the country, is what voters should consider as they cast their ballots, not necessarily who can best serve Georgia’s needs.

Democrats, who need to win both runoff races to control the Senate, say dual victories are necessary for Mr. Biden to undertake a concerted and complete recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. Republicans say a win in January, when the elections take place, is the only buffer left against what they claim is creeping “socialism.”...
