The amount of respect I have lost for your work after finding out you’re associated with the next for autism event is astronomical. If you can’t do the one google search it takes to listen to autistic voices on this matter, then I dont trust you to properly research your stories. Nothing about us, without us!

How does Barr think the mafia started? A swathe of American society was not given police protection so a group within that community sprung up to protect that part of the community.

I agree entirely with this characterization of Barr. But one thing I think is missed here: Demonizing line police officers makes as much sense (as in no sense at all) as when people spit on ordinary soldiers when they came home from Viet Nam. The courts can deal very well with police officers who go WAY over the line. Think Michael Slager/Walter Scott, NOT Derek Chauvin/George Floyd. But when social media becomes Judge, jury, & executioner, things go off the rails.....as in the very real, unjustified crucifixion of Chauvin. The problem lies with management.....NOT labor.

Trump doesn't know ANY articles in the Constitution! He only spoke about article 2 repeatedly because he had just learned about it. But article 2 DOESN'T give him the "power" to "DO WHATEVER" he wants to do!!! However, Barr and the GQP allowed him to do whatever he wanted.

I don't think the British stereotype personified should be dumping on the bagpipes, especially when Scotland the Brave is what's being played. That aside it's not possible to dump on Bill Bar enough.

Nah, as someone that has danced to bagpipe music for years (both highland and ceilidh dancing) there are far more songs. It's just that Americans only seem to know 'Scotland the Brave'.

A community should not earn respect from the police. But also a police force doesn't work when it has no respect from the community, the politicians, by the media. I wouldn't want to be dealing with the crime in America with the hatred the police force gets while they do many things well but get 0% respect. You need to acknowledge who deals with the crime.

I was framed For my parents crimes
When Barr broke with Trump and announced that there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud and then resigned was no act of courage. It was a calculated move because he could read the tea leaves and knew Trump was a lost cause. Barr is an astute politician just like McConnell and saw that the crap was going to hit the fan and tried to remove himself from the spread. He’s a slimy weasel but politically smarter than Trump. Which is a low Barr to cross.

That’s definitely a faked bagpipe video lol. That’s a famous recording of Scotland the Brave with drums which you can’t see and he’s not even squeezing the bag or using his fingers at the right time for the song. Plus if that were live, the bagpipes would be making a WAY louder sound.
