    As a Christian, I too want peace, but as a pragmatist I don't think Antifa is going to stop until they get a major smackdown and know there are consequences to their actions.

    And they need to pass a federal law that prohibits wearing masks at civil demonstrations and protest gatherings.

    I wouldn't be against that. Anonymity invites anarchism.

    Happy Trump of July. I hope someone’s going to send him the bill.

    The US hasn’t been invaded and occupied by a foreign power in over 200 years, so the same memories don’t apply here. I’ve taken part in a few.

    That doesn't make sense. Denmark has a military parade (though they tend to be rather smaller affairs): http://royalcentral.co.uk/europe/den...enhagen-112087

    France has a MASSIVE military parade on Bastille Day,



    The Greeks have a pretty big one on their Independence Day,



    Poland, Romania, and a number of other European counties also have pretty big parades with tanks, planes, helicopters, etc. Most other nations in Europe have at least some sort of military parade though they might be smaller affairs.
