    ...so, we have many POTUSs/VPs attending space launches and touring NASA/etc many times...that's what they do--attend events!!!!!..special/unique/etc events
    ...Poppy mentions Mr Trump attending the SpaceX launch ---a very unique, non-political event and Takao went insane
    ...TDS is real, folks
    2016 is over..been over
    ..what was supposed to be a non-political, polite thread was ruined because of TDS
    so, here you go Takao ---what do you have to say?

    well, the SA/nazis disrupted political meetings of opponents:
    Sturmabteilung (SA)

    what do you know--the left and BLM [ anti-Trumpers ]did the SAME thing:
    Trump rally repeatedly disrupted by protesters
    Donald Trump rally disrupted by more than 2 dozen Black Lives Matter protesters - CNNPolitics
    https://www.thestate.com/news/politics-government/article64182107.html
    etc many more links

    ..the anti-Trumpers did not accept a legal, fair, American election - and they don't accept fair, legal court verdicts = not only un-American, but uncivilized/etc

    ..the left/etc are PROUD to be ''uncivilized''/uncivilized/un-American/etc
    caps for emphasis

    Friend, you need to chill and see a joke for what it is, a joke. Bob Hope did something similar in a movie switching republicans for democrats as zombies. It was funny then, it is funny now.

    Donald Trump is not the second coming of Jesus Christ, and was not sent by God to save the Republic, far from it. In my estimation only three people can come even vaguely close to that, Washington who turned down the chance to become king, Lincoln who guided us thru the Civil War and FDR who got us through the Depression and WW II when we could have gone down the same fascist road so many other countries did.

    The vast majority of all presidents are temporary place holders, some better than others, some worse. If you want to think the former about our current president, that is your privilege, just as it for others to think the opposite.

    There is only one truth, eventually he will no longer be president, possibly this January if current polls are correct or in 4 years and history will the final arbiter on just where he placed.

    I've got TDS. Going to a BLM anti violence protest March today. All redneck Trump cultists in town say they'll be armed. Wish me luck.

    My how virtuous you are!

    The "Trump cultists" you mention seem quite sensible to be. If there were "anti-violence protests" planned in my area these days, some form of protection is a great idea.

    Just calling it as I see it. 1st Amendment and all. My son is in the cult giving me a first row seat. I see that 40% of the people who voted for him do not agree he is doing a good job. Not everyone who voted is in the cult. Obama had a few I'd wager.

    1000 people lined Main St by our 1 stoplight. I saw 8 LEO's and 4 blacks while I was there so it was under control. I saw 2 armed citizens on roof tops and as I was leaving I saw a cowboy on horseback with a gun on each hip and a rifle in the scabbard riding towards the demonstration. I'm no horseman but that seemed dumb and dangerous.

    I went up to one of the LEO's and gave him the peace sign. I asked him to point out any Boogaloo Boys he saw because I wanted a picture of one. I got him to smile just a tad under his stonefaced look.

    Funny, your son's views are diametrically opposed to yours.

    Seems fitting for a man who called his own father a terrorist for serving his country.

    Not sure how much you know about the Rangers and FSSF but there job description was to inflict terror on the enemy. I'm a Ranger and FSSF historian. We're trying to get my son to seek help. Did you know that my wife's cousin was in the SS? Do you think he was in the cult of Hitler?

    And again you double down on calling him a terrorist.

    I'm quite familiar with the unit, and the thread on your father goes into detail on his very real heroism and sacrifice. As a resident of the US, I appreciate his service and appreciate his sacrifice. I only wish his own son felt the same way, I think he's earned that.

    Indeed. Social Justice Warrior lefties invent societal ills and simply must virtuously address them. This creates large conflagrations in their minds, and many irons to poke them with.

    You say you are familiar with the Rangers? The CO of one of the 2nd Btn companies got promoted to Maj on 6/3/44 and listed Fr Dy To Hosp on 6/4. Why? Name the Ranger for extra cred.

    I'm hoping you know. Really

    Why? Was he a terrorist in your eyes as well?

    Why? Because you suggested you well versed about the Rangers. I was hoping that you are. I'm always interested in learning more.

    Why did MOH winner Shunstrom get a Dishonorable Discharge?. Since reversed.

    Lots of interesting stories are out there that aren't in a book.

    I know enough about the unit to know one shouldn't consider them terrorists. I was surprised to see there are some that disagree with this, but the internet never ceases to surprise me.

    TDS is a form of mental angst suffered for the same reasons that Lytle, Ranger 2nd Btn Rangers, was promoted to Major on 6/3/44 and and was fr dty to Hosp on 6/4/44. This forum is extremely unstable for me. Don't know why. Perhaps OMA or another Ranger historian can supply the details of the incident. About to hit the"post" icon. Hope it works.
