Outside of getting a bunch of senior citizens all worked up what did they hope to accomplish by protesting in The Villages?

I am sure....I was surprised about folks like Eli Broad ho give a million, and as I said surprised at Kushner s brother who gave at least 50 grand. The funding was done through 501(c)(4) so names can be confidential, but that doesn't seem to qualify as extreme leftists as was said. Fact is, anything that is public is more the opposite.this my interest when I read the statement that seemed to imply nobody but extreme leftists gave money. This was international in scope

But you mentioned the Times, and I always thought theyjust lied and used fake news ������

While I'm thinking about it, can someone please explain why so many that become apoplectic about someone kneeling during the national anthem and claiming that they aren't respecting our country/government, are a lot of the same ones stockpiling guns & ammo...in case they need to fight our country/government.

You don't have to love your government to love your country..

There are few in our government that I respect.... On either side of the isle..

The government isn't our country, the people are.

I missed how respecting NFL players for the "initial" demonstrations (it became a thing then) was a symbol of my patriotism. When I served, words were just words...I actually served both military and once in civilian life. Never had any doubts about my patriotism, while I know guys who "talk a good game"

You are correct by the way, but I think you need to RESPECT

I'm sure that the roads were blocked so an idiot didn't use a vehicle to hurt the protesters as has happened in the past. Good planning on the part of LEO.

All that has happened is that a few lefties have trolled a few old fart righties. Think about it. The lawmakers are never going to do anything, even if the other party takes control in 2019. They all feed from the same trough.
