"Chaos of 2020 election has meant no honeymoon for Beto O’Rourke, 47th pres, whose narrow win over Nikki Haley (GOP convention in Charlotte having rejected Pres Pence) had only enraged both the right & increasingly angry left..." If @Will_Bunch wrote it, you should read it.
2/ "You’d think the rapid decline of Western civilization would get more news coverage in America ... but the latest chess moves in the Trump-Russia scandal and the embattled White House continue to trump most other headlines."
3/ "I imagine one reason the mayhem in Paris hasn’t been viewed with much alarm here in the United States is the notion of French Exceptionalism, that those crazy Gauls have always gone off the deep end with their protests -- remember 1789? -- and this is just one more."
4/ "Trump’s so vain, he actually thinks the riots are about him (although it should be noted that the protests had nothing to do with the Paris climate accord and not one soul chanted “We want Trump!”).

That said...yes it can happen here."
5/ "Here’s three key reason why we should be paying closer attention to France, even with the American presidency imploding.

-- Economic inequality and rural resentment.
-- “Fake news” on social media is getting worse.
-- Climate change is hard and going to get harder."
6/ "The tragedy of the Trump presidency isn’t just a criminal wack-a-do occupying the Oval Office but that the current crisis is preventing America from doing the things it needs to be doing."
7/ "That means policies to address income inequality -- universal health care, forgiving college debt and a meaningful minimum wage -- as well as climate change, and rebuilding journalism and the information infrastructure to blunt the impact of fake news."
8/8 "The best way to stop another civil war tomorrow is to start making sense today."
