#1 Until some people are actually on trial we shouldn't be calling it a coup. Just bad sportsmanship or something.

#2 Yes, and Looey Gomer, Jason "Tim Curry" Chaffetz and Curt Gowdy-Doody did nothing to stop it or slow it down. They just grandstanded hoping to improve their own positions withing the swamp. F*ck them...

#3 No, it was a coup attempt, but it did not come close. We did not have to clean our guns and head to DC, we did not have to take our nation back by force. It would have come to an armed revolt if they even came close. To the authors point, they have no idea how close they came to making their political attempt an kinetic one.

#4 Yes to all you said 49 Pan. Except for the gun cleaning part--it's good to keep them clean and at the ready all the time.

#7 I'm guilty John and Vader, I don't clean them like I should. But before I go they are ready for sure!!

#8 Mucerek is 100% correct. Lots of talk but all hot air. The only way you defeat a coup is a counter-coup. That means lots of dead bodies. None so far and I doubt there will ever be any.
