1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Sue Pertwee-Tyr Well, I can dream, can’t I?

    Watching live on CNN, it’s disturbing.

    It's odd isn't it? Several hundred far-right Trump supporters try and storm the Capitol building, and the police are nowhere to be seen. But just get a gathering of a few peaceful BLM protestors and suddenly the cops are everywhere, and armed.

    To borrow the title of another thread, bonkers, bonkers, bonkers. Vlad the Impaler must be loving this - he doesn't have to do anything, Americans are doing it to themselves, completely discrediting their own much vaunted system of government. President Xi can point to the orderly Chinese alternative to the chaotic Western model. A different sort of day that will live in infamy, I fear.

    I have to assume these protesters are all white, because they are not already dead.

    Remember when Trump told the Proud Boys to "Stand back and stand by?" Well, we can see the results now. This has been planned for weeks, if not months.

    This is all very Reichstag 1933 isn’t it? I only hope this does the Republican Party huge, huge damage. They are clearly no longer a democratic party in any shape or form.

    TheDecameron Unicorns fart glitter.

    Watching CNN and looks like balls out ( old overweight white balls) insurrection in the Capitol building, guns drawn, people cowering on the floor. New York Post published laughably faked images of Trump’s Washington rally, inflating numbers beyond the pitiful turnout.

    Eric Trump at the rally earlier today said “This is no longer your Republican Party, it’s Trump’s Republican Party”.

    So there you have it. It’s a coup attempt.

    Yes, the party will split into Trumpists and not Trumpists now. All of which will make it easier for the Democrats to win future elections.

    They have control of the Capitol, basically, and we can have a literal 'Reichstag fire' if someone wants.
