Let them protest,riot and loot who cares . To follow the call for such acts by all the buttercup leaders is an attempt to force there rule upon us . The Libs are unable to understand a very simple fact they lost in a landslide they can cry and call for protest , they can point fingers at others and say we lost because of the Russians .
In four days we will be ” free at last “, yes free at last from eight years of corruption .

However, in light of recent events, lets play another game.

Here is the situation: 20 JAN 2017, Inauguration Day.

The anti-Trump types light the fuze to the powder keg. And it goes boom.

Major protests in large cities and college campuses, many with violence, arson, general chaos.

But it continues for not just one day but over several days with no end in sight.

There are those who see Trump as a Nazi, doing everything they can to save America from him and his Nazi ways. Real or not, does not matter.

How would you see national events like this playing out in your AOO?

How would you respond?

What actions could or would you take?

Not to worried…!!!

In my area, It really would not be vary smart for protesters (what ever they are) to come walking down the road.
Neighbor’s would ban together.

Any ways its to flip’in cold for those idiots to venture this far out of there comfort zone.

I would be more worried about martial law. Don’t think it will happen..never know.

Haven’t been in Detroit in over 10 years, nothing there for me, last time I was there was for the casino’s, and all they did was take my money.
I have my boundary lines between suburbia and rural and seldom cross them.
just my 2 cents

A few years ago a volunteer at the hospital here came down with the flesh eating bacteria from a cut received while pushing a wheelchair. She died. So this crap is floating around now. It’s just the luck of the draw whether you catch some of these bugs or not.

The Japanese are experimenting with a paint that supposedly kills viruses. I read that some time back and have not heard anymore. From my readings about ozone I don’t know why hospital don’t use it to disinfect the operating rooms and equipt. Sttrong enough it kills all viruses and everything else. ( I found out the hard way this includes house plants and goldfish)

This weekend I took advantage of a KMart store closing sale. Picked up a portable butane stove, some batteries, first aid and bicycle repair items. I was also looking there for a deep cycle battery for my 2017 solar project, but no luck.

Also attended a natural cordage workshop and learned a bit more than I knew beforehand about natural fibers and braiding them into rope.

Let us know what you find out. The CDC (like everything in government these days) seems pretty politicized, based on what we saw during the ebola situation.

I’m nearly halfway in between Philly and NYC. I’d expect protests in those cities. Perhaps even in Jersey City or Trenton. I’m at least 30 miles away from the closest of those 4. Where I actually live, commute, and work is not going to see any of that. I also don’t wear my politics on my sleeve. Thus, I’m not likely to get my tires slashed or truck windows broken by some anonymous POS in the middle of the night because of a bumper sticker they don’t like. No political affiliations are advertised.

If there’s a week of escalating protests, I’ll just have something to watch with popcorn as things clamp down on those potential pockets of unrest. Safe to say most police departments have plans for this, and of course there’s the National Guard. My only concern would be if there’s some actual disruption to the continuance of government with our newly elected. That would be bad. In that event… I’d work from home, bug in, and stay tuned into developments.

Thank you all for playing.

I am in a very rural area and, admittedly, out of touch with society in some regards.

Not Ted Kaczynski out of touch, but enough I can not name a current prime time sitcom.

Those of you in urban areas, your input and observations are valued.

Good advice all around.

Out of everyone here you seem like you could be the most affected by anything, unless the big cities start to riot. Hope your daughter takes you up and comes home for a visit.

As liberal as Vermont is, I’m not worried at all, or at least no more worried than usual.

Highly doubtful it would affect our neck of the woods. Sure, we have plenty of liberals…….ok, we have a few……but they’re so outnumbered (and much of the area is armed) that they’re not going to try anything stupid. Nor would law enforcement use kid gloves with them. So again, they are not likely to do anything stupid.

Most likely the only action you would see is on tv news unless you were foolish enough to venture into areas you shouldn’t or areas where protests are taking place.

That said, it still doesn’t hurt to be aware of your surroundings & people nearby when venturing out, especially if you’re in a city. I think of the video of the poor older man drug from his car & taunted / beaten while being accused of voting for Trump………as they were bold enough to video it. (still hoping the idiots involved were arrested, can’t say I’ve heard)

Our main problem is that like Driven, we live in southern ca. Want a CCR, forget about it, they aren’t issuing until after all the court fights are over about 2 years from now. At 74 I don’t worry to much about not having a permit and using a gun to protect the wife, and me. At the speed and, the way the courts work I will probably die of old age before going to court…..

You’ve got to live your life. As for myself, as an IT professional there just aren’t many good paying jobs in the rural areas. I need money to support my family in the now and enough extra to prep for the future. That’s just how it is.

Having lived & worked in Detroit, I agree with Ray. Know your ‘hood. Times I’ve been broken into: Detroit 0, Hooterville: 2

I’m in KC’s boat. Have to work & pay the bills. I go where the job that pays the most takes me. I’m not fussy about the ‘hood I work in. It’s only a means to pay the bills.

India’s death rate according to CIA world factbook is about 7 per 1000. Based on this, 8.4 million people die every year in India which comes to 22,500 per day approximately.

https://www.quora.com/How-many-people-d … -every-day

No one actually knows how many die every year or the causes of their deaths. This is due do to an inadequate and antiquated health care system for the masses. What we do know is millions of Indians travel every year. This could get interesting real fast, as you can carry this bug and not be ill! Swamp

So why isn’t all of India dying off? Have they developed an immunity? Do they have drugs we don’t?

Don’t forget, we’re like the hogs in the barns. Protected from most diseases. No herd immunity built up. We travel to other countries where we get sick with the water and food that doesn’t bother the locals. Look at the crap the illegals are bringing in.

RayMac nailed it. Avoid stupid people in stupid places and you’re mostly good to go. Of course sometimes stupid will find you anyway, so a well practiced situational awareness is key, but that’s true anywhere.

As for riots, I’m not too worried. Mobs don’t mess with armed people standing their ground and guarding their property. Lot’s of videos from the LA riots, Ferguson and more recently Portland prove my point.

Oh, it ain’t that bad here. For the most part, if you know where NOT to go, and more importantly WHEN not to go there, you’re fine. Sure, you guys hear on the national news about shootings in Detroit or Chicago, or any of the other big cities, but what they rarely say is its at 1 am in some gas station in the hood, or the parties know each other. Smart people stay out of those places. I give you a prime example. We have a contract for fuel with a gas station on 8 mile near my job for the security trucks. Guess who is responsible for going by to pay them weekly? thats right ME! So do i go after work at 5:30 when the crack heads are up and hanging around asking to pump gas for change? HECK NO! I go a 7 am on the way in when the place is empty. Yes, I’m carrying, but the best way to win a gun fight is not to be in one in the first place. Now, breaking in your house or building, or stealing your stuff out of your car, thats a different story. That happens anytime.

But to Cast Iron’s question, any real protest will be limited in geographical scope no matter what. There simply aren’t enough people for it to be wide spread. Look back at the 68 riots. As scary as they were at the time for the country, you could fit all the “action” here in Detroit in less then a square mile. Detroit is about 150 square miles FYI… Thats the same for the other cities that had disturbances. 99% of us are in no real danger. What that WOULD be is a perfect opportunity for is some kind of martial law, and an excuse for a power grab by the feds. I wouldn’t would worry about the Snow flakes so much as i would worry that about a knock on the door and some police standing there with a sack of 4473’s with my signature on them.
