A couple of ponders-
A. I have sworn off on the news ------about 99% and it leads me to wonder how much is really taking place -----''body countwise" vs the population --and how much--------- goes on into civil resistance   as described in ponder B. It might be 1 out 3 or------- odds more like- 20 out of 10,000 --As far as being somewhere at a protests party  and no   innocent 3rd party getting bothered ,I see nothing there that is any of my concern and will listen to any good and new knowledge for the human race--if I am in the mood
B. Wiki -- goes in depth with categories beyond --------protests vs riot---Wiki is about all I could find-in my short hunt for knowledge on the protest concept. Down at the bottom of Wiki-- I do believe I am running into a little of a ''for it'' attitude

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protest

I hope No one gets too mad because they think I am citing stupid links or saying stupid things again.

Body count vs population..... I think it varies a lot depending on what they are protesting. I think in most cases the ratio is pretty small. Then when you take into consideration that a lot of the protestors, when asked, don't really know the actual history of the situation they are protesting, can't really define what they are protesting, or what kind of solution they want to see, but are just there for the drama and excitement, the ratio of serious protestors gets even smaller. The fact that some government leaders, give so much credence to such a small percentage of the population, just because they are loud and disruptive continues to amaze me. Allowing a peaceful protest to take place is one thing, but failing to stop a protest involving violence, burning, and looting is quite another. Allowing honest citizens and business owners to suffer, just to appease a relatively small group of violent radicals is hard for me to understand.

I always laugh out loud when people "get inside" of the protester's heads to tell us what they (the protesters) do and don't know about what they are protesting.

Hi Tom. What’s that drive-by all about? Being passive/aggressive isn’t a good trait for you. I know you spend your entire life posting and starting multiple threads here... but I don’t have the time (or interest) in keeping up with your game. I’ve been engaging with members who I respect and wish to engage. Have a nice day. Maybe play your banjo a bit or get some fresh air?

There is a rich tradition of Canadian songs called "Complaints".

Well, when the news reporters at the scene of a protest ask them, and they can't answer the question, it says a lot about what they know and don't know.  I saw that a bunch of times at the scenes where statues were being toppled over and destroyed. I also saw it when reporters asked some of the people who occupied the chop area in Seattle.  One of the answers they got was "free food".  How can you construe that as legitimate, informed, protestors?

Mr.Bolie

I am talking to you so -I am entering discussion with you -- I guess i thought you would get that.The banjo and fresh air are already being done to death and no i don't worry that you are not hangin on to --- every one of my historical words ha ha-- The jay-pegs--Those are just reusable signs----- I think will'' come in handy''---- but I don't see needing one ----for our 2 way street

.I needed a word so the post would recognize some subject matter---you got elected--since you were in the neighborhood
Passive-aggressive -I guess the native american proverb of the one that you feed --is the one that grows fits us one and all

Tom, I am just confused because on several occasions you have posted about me, by name, and I just haven’t had the smarts to figure out why you tagged me...without further context. I wondered “is this reference from a past thread?” or “what specifically did I post to merit being called out?”. Some, not all, of these threads bring out interesting points from both sides. I just can’t keep up, but that’s on me

I am not calling you out about anything Bolie-- I am trying my damndest to get that across. I really don't know how to say it more plainly.--The signs ain't for you at all--

As a forum member-You face things hurled at you --No problem at all with our discussions here --

I just said good morning ,since I knew you were around and also------- maybe guessed wrong,,that you would sometimes --wish you had a  j-peg  like that to use . ---Bad idea, you think???

Btw --back to our usual topic---now don't get mad--what latigo says --supports my  such as --''kids are crying wolf'' ''make them write it up''

i am headed for outdoors

Tom, no worries. I obviously was "overthinking" things. I take the responsibility and apologies. I've never had issues with you here and often think that your threads provoke good discussion and I appreciate your responses (and yes, your jpegs might be useful, lol). My tongue in cheek "play banjo/get some fresh air" might be good self-advice for me! Have a good one
