Is The Left Trying To Start A Civil War?

 

...

 

Many believe that a civil war has already started in America.

 

Americans may not be shooting at each other yet, but without a doubt we are in a battle for the soul of this nation. The following comes from an excellent article by Dennis Prager

 

Quote

 

It is time for our society to acknowledge a sad truth: America is currently fighting its second Civil War.

 

In fact, with the obvious and enormous exception of attitudes toward slavery, Americans are more divided morally, ideologically and politically today than they were during the Civil War. For that reason, just as the Great War came to be known as World War I once there was World War II, the Civil War will become known as the First Civil War when more Americans come to regard the current battle as the Second Civil War.

Usual suspects, usual nonsense.

 

The first sentence is enough for any right minded person to say "Nope".

Personally, I think we need another Civil War, but not against each other, or north vs. south type thing, but against all the numb nuts in Washington D.C.

I used to think that way, but i was at this fb group where both troll and make fun of each other, but at the end of the day, they all stand one as Americans :)I hope we can live together accepting our differences

This is what happens when BOTH Democrats and Republicans start catering to the far right and far left. I have often thought they we in America have already been fighting another Civil War. Maybe not the battlefield type, but with the vast split in ideology in both government and society. No one can think central anymore. I mean during the Obama admin we say the rise of the Tea Party and the Alt Right, which at the time helped create more of a split in society. The right may have forgotten this already, but the last 8 years has been nothing but bitching, moaning, conspiracies and blocking of the lefts agenda. Now the left is doing the same, what goes around comes around. 

 

If the right wants to think it's all the left's fault, then they really need to take a hard look in the mirror and reflect on what they did for the last 8 years as well. 

Until our society can actually come back together and listen and work with the opposite side without shutting them down, mocking them etc we will never get anywhere.

And take away the guns in the process. 

 

The hatred among the American people these days and the number of firearms they have is a disturbing combination.

The Uncivil War and What You Can Do About It

 

Dear Parader,

 

Not to be overly dramatic, but a civil war has begun in America. Everyone knows it to be true, but no one knows what comes next.

 

The conflict of visions between freethinkers and the socialists who believe government should hammer humanity into model citizens has reached what divorce lawyers call “irreconcilable differences.”

 

Evidence of the hostilities is abundant. Starting with the daily exchange of conflicting, angry “news” stories pandering only to viewers on one side of the great divide. These stories offer no conciliatory or constructive narratives, just animus, angst, and cold anger.  

 

As with the first US Civil War, wide schisms have formed that now separate families and friends. Schisms that will take years to heal, and maybe never.

 

The odds of this turning into an armed conflict, other than sporadic violent incidents, may seem remote. Yet the vast majority of people living in Sarajevo didn’t see that civil war coming either.

 

Violent or not, the turmoil is just beginning, with the progressives and their allies in the media determined to end the Trump administration by any means possible.

 

Lined up against them are the forces aligned with Trump, staunchly determined to hold the hard-won political ground.

 

There can be no compromise, because Trump is the antithesis of everything his opponents believe in their heart of hearts to be sacrosanct in the Brave New World they have worked so long to create.

 

It matters not a whit that history, science, and culture are replete with lessons proving that the socialist agenda leads to ruin—a ruin that is being hurried along today by sticky globs of political correctness and multiculturalism that supersede the rights of individual expression.

Comments like this are just dumb. As a lefty, as some would put it, I believe in the Second. That doesn't mean I don't think some limits should exist but I would fight like many others on the left to keep the Second in place. The notion that the "left" wants to get rid of guns is just pure stupidity. 

 

You're probably still waiting for Obama to take away everyone's guns. Don't worry it will happen any day now.

      Battlefield 1 gameplay trailer shows off jaw-dropping battle scenes
      by Usama Jawad

      Battlefield 1 caused quite some waves when Electronic Arts showed off a trailer for the game last month, alongside Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. While the latter received almost 3 million dislikes on its YouTube channel, the former soared to popularity with nearly 40 million views, 2 million likes and only 33,000 dislikes. Now, EA has shown off another gameplay trailer for Battlefield 1, which showcases some intense battle scenes.

      The upcoming game uses the same game engine, Frostbite, that will also be utilized in FIFA 17. Battlefield 1 is set to take players back to World War 1, with cinematic scenes of horses, hand-to-hand combat and mustard gas being shown throughout the trailer. Battlefield Global Community Manager Dan Mitre had the following to say:

      Battlefield 1 is set to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation and PC on November 21, 2016. The game is also scheduled for a public beta some time soon, but details haven't been revealed as of yet. If you are a member of EA Access on Xbox One or Origin Access on PC, you will be able to play the game before launch, and will receive a 10% discount when you purchase the game.

      Apple is seeking an additional $180 million from Samsung
      by Steven Johns

      Image via TechCrunch If you've already forgotten about the Samsung and Apple legal battle, then you might be interested to know that it's still ongoing with court cases being filed by either side. Today, however, it's about Apple looking for supplemental damages as they allege Samsung continued to violate certain payments after a court-mandated cutoff time. This comes hard on the heels of Samsung appealing Apple's recent victory, just a few weeks since Samsung agreed to pay Apple almost $550 million in what appeared to have finally been the climax in the five-year long legal battle between the two tech juggernauts.

      Apple is alleging Samsung didn't abide by the court-mandated cutoff time which specified that Samsung should discontinue to produce certain products that were alleged to violate Apple's patents. This referred to five different Samsung handset models.

      Florian Mueller, an expert on patents and an author at FOSSpatents, was the first to pick up on the supplemental charges and commented that "[the] amount seems high to me given that the products at issue in this case (the first litigation between the two companies) were already somewhat outdated by the time of the 2012 trial."

      Where this will go is anyone's guess, but it's clear that the patent war -- or more specifically the smartphone patent war -- is far from over.

      A copy of the declaration submitted by Apple's damages expert Julie Davis can be viewed below:

      Rare albino deer bagged by 11-year-old Michigan's Gavin Dingman shoots white animal with crossbow on hunting trip with his father; story generates wide range of emotional feedback

      An 11-year-old Michigan hunter last week killed a rare albino deer while on a hunting trip with his father.
      This week, the story is generating a wide range of emotional feedback on Facebook.
      Gavin?s father, Mick Dingman, told WZZM 13 that he and his son had spotted the white deer several times in recent the years, and that other hunters had talked about trying to bag the animal.
      An admittedly nervous Gavin used a crossbow from 30 yards to harvest the 12-point trophy buck, and the news quickly spread in hunting circles.
      ?He kind of feels like a rock star right now,? Mick Dingman said. ?Everyone is calling, all of the hunting shows and hunting magazines.?
      Sentiments being expressed on the WZZM 13 Facebook page, where the albino deer story has been shared more than 4,000 times, are somewhat mixed.
      ?He should have let it live. There are plenty of others out there,? reads one of hundreds of comments.
      ?If it?s rare, why the hell would he kill it?? reads another.
      ?I?m fine with hunting, just hate the ?Hey look, it?s different, let?s shoot it? ideas. Shoot it with a camera and let the unique one live,? reads yet another.
      Deer-hunting in Michigan is an extremely popular pastime, so it?s not surprising that so many wrote in defense of Gavin Dingman.
      ?Get over it. The law says it?s legal. Back off the kid!!! Way to go kiddo!!? reads one comment.
      ?He paid good money for his license. He can use it for anything HE chooses, ? reads another. ?Whether it be a brown deer or an albino buck, the state of Michigan gave him permission to kill it. Leave the kid alone. He did nothing wrong. He harvested a great trophy.?
      Some of the commenters criticized WZZM 13 for posting the story on Facebook, opening Gavin to criticism.
      ?WZZM should stick with reporting news, not trying to make an 11-year-old boy feel guilty for shooting a deer, during deer season,? reads one comment.
      Albino deer and leucistic deer (not a true albino) possess genetic defects that cause the white pigmentation.
      Some native cultures revere the white animals, and believe that they possess the spirits of ancestors.
      This story brings to mind the killing last October of a rare albino ?spirit moose? in Nova Scotia, Canada.
      Three hunters involved in that expedition were harshly criticized on social media sites, and ultimately issued a formal apology to the Mi?kmaq people.
      It?s unclear whether any native groups have spoken out against Gavin Dingman?s killing of the white deer in Michigan.
      The boy?s description of his big moment: ?My dad was just like, ?Take a deep breath. Are you sure you can take the shot? If you?re not 100 percent, we don?t want to injure it.? ?
      The family plans to pay a taxidermist to create a full body mount of the deer.
      WZZM 13 cites a report that claims that one out of 20,000 deer are born albino.
