The latest?

A sitting Congressman claiming that "we" will fight a sitting President..... in the streets.

 

It'll be a long, nasty, dirty war.

If you're not alarmed by this sort of rhetoric, and don't find it to be cause to immediately demand that any such "lawmaker" be expelled and even prosecuted for a terrorist threat you're not very bright.

It would be legal to call for a general strike, for example.

But fighting in the streets is another matter.  That's a declaration of intent to commit violence against a sitting government.

Good luck with that Mr. Californicated.  May I remind you that your Governor has just declared he intends to allow illegal invaders to access Medicaid and that the Federal Government has not only no requirement to fund that it has an explicit requirement not to under current law, and that without said funding California will fiscally collapse within months.

Then what?  You have a bunch of very angry illegal invaders and a metric crap-ton of homeless junkies, all of whom will be cut off, and no way for the state to fund any of their bullcrap.

Good luck with that.
