It’s not weird.
a) People don’t congregate in large buildings anymore.
b) police are EVERYWHERE in everything now.
c) The USA gave everything to the Taliban after a meeting at Camp David, and reports are that the Taliban and ISIS are teaming up now. So, basically, the USA supports ISIS now by proxy.
So, we don’t hear about it.
Wait – nvm, it is weird. But the USA isn’t what it was.
I didn’t pay Obama any attention Same with Bush or Clinton.
Only reason I’m annoyed at Trump is he demands daily news be all about him every single day. He never shuts up for a moment.
I’d like to hear about something else but he keeps yapping. I like a quiet President who does work and gives a nice speech every month.
He wasn’t much different than Bush or Clinton though. Center-right politics. Big business is great. Talk about the little people but not do much. I liked the gay marriage thing but that was overdue anyway.
The reason why these guys all stood together in a lot of things? They were basically the same person 5 different times. Trump’s politics aren’t even that different than these guys except he’s noisy and he says the quiet things out loud.
All presidents are egotistical and racist and sexist and only pretend to care. Sociopathy is part of the job. But he doesn’t even try to hide it. It’s embarrassing.

ok. skin cells destroyed. causes pain. white blood cells rush in to fix things. causes swelling and more heat as it inflames tissue which adds to the raw dead cell hurt. new layer of skin forming from outside in, also tightness between old and new, plus liquids oozing over for protection leading to cold/hot/wet uncomfortable sensation for even another kind of weird pain.
Now, it’s not nerve damage. If it was nerve damage you would feel less pain because nerves = pain. nerve damage = less pain as they’re not functioning right. Well functioning nerves = pain.
Americans don’t need Soviet help. Our inner paranoia about each other does us all in.
I’m not pro direct democracy and I dare say I don’t think anybody significant is advocating for actual direct democracy.
In short, I think it’s a strawman in this case.
Progressive measures in the USA are equivalent to FDR policies, a far far far far distance way from Athenian Democracy or anything close to it.
