Again, how is there no barricade closer to the March.  A fully loaded tanker can’t stop on a dime.  If he didn’t know they were around the turn, it’s amazing he didn’t run into the crowd.  If he didn’t know they were there, I can’t blame him/her for trying to start up again when the crowd comes at his vehicle.  They weren’t coming to shake his hand.  

Watching those videos it’s hard for me to believe he didn’t see the protesters. I don’t know how much harm he intended or whether he just figured I’m in a big truck they’ll move. Thankfully the protesters reacted quickly and most people got out of the way. Of course they weren’t coming to shake his hand. These protesters almost lost their life because of a careless idiot, that truck drivers lucky those protesters stayed peaceful and he’ll get jail to me instead of being dead.

The only people who need to be tested are health care workers, the elderly, and those with underlying health conditions.  If you are young (under 50) and healthy and are taking up a test kit, crowding

This country is being bright to its knees by fear....not the virus. Recovery from getting the virus is a couple weeks. Recovery of society from this hysteria will be years.

It’s sad that about half the country still believes outlets like msnbc and cnn.  You would think after they lied everyday for 3 years about Russian collusion, people would get the hint of what their t

There is no 'regardless'.  If you're President, your job is to represent and convey everything that is good about America in a time of crisis; then work with the citizenry to fix the bad.     

Making a statement that invokes segregation at a time like this is beyond preposterous.

Was the looting in Minneapolis before or after that tweet?  I can’t remember. 

Either way, there is nothing good about the actions of the violent protestors.  There also are no demands so there is no way to fix it.

I just think too many nut cases  are fans of the movie The Purge. 

I’m a big fan of The Purge too especially the TV series but I won’t be out doing that. Was thinking though a lot of scenes across the country have looked right out of the show.

Yeah, I like it too.  But I figured I better clarify my statement by saying just the nut cases who are fans of the show. Hopefully that excludes us. :lol:

It took WCCO a long time to clear up the confusion about the truck being on the interstate before closure. He hit the horn and was able to stop. The scheduled time to close the interstate was 8pm and changed to 5pm with little notice. The road cleared and he started up again before people jumped on his truck, pulled him from the truck and attacked him. Driver was arrested. Whomever assaulted him should have been arrested. The video doesn’t appear to show the driver trying to deliberately run into protesters. Someone needs to figure out why he was driving there. Authorities will need to sort out the facts.

Yes. This country needs something to collectively hope for, because we haven't been this screwed since the 60s.   We're in the middle of a pandemic with 100k dead, unemployment is through the roof, citizens are at each other's throats politically, food pantries are full of people, protests and riots everywhere, cities going up in flames.      This is awful.

It wasn't a statement that invokes segregation. It was a statement warning about the dangers of looting.

Why is it hard for you to believe he didn’t see the protestors? They were gathered behind a curve, he laid on his horn and slammed on the brakes. Thankfully there were a few in the crowd trying to protect him but to say the protestors stayed peaceful is dead wrong he was beat for minutes. Those protestors didn’t need to be on 35w and this was also another fail on MN state patrol for not barricading the highway.

Has Walz relaxed the religious gathering restrictions?   Or is it still worse to have 11 people praying together than having thousands rioting, looting, and vandalizing together?

Remember when communist governments put the hammer down on churches and people met in secret for worship?  Never thought I would see the day where churches cower in the face of government oppression, yet here we are.

Agreed.  If he wanted to run over the protesters, there would be dead protesters.  I don't know if he was unaware of what was ahead of him or if he just came to his senses late, but at least nobody was killed.

The idiots were the people on the interstate. What was he supposed to do just stop on the interstate and let the thugs burn his rig down after getting beat up. F no. I will give him the benefit of the doubt because if he wanted to run over people he could have taken out hundreds.

People were laying down in the road in front of him so he was forced to stop. He could have taken out the whole crowd if he wanted.

Time to rename “worship service” into “peaceful protest “.

Well the Supreme Court ruled we can’t worship because of COVID, I wonder what they would rule about the first amendment?

It’s not right wing or left wing, it comes together on the circle.  They are extremists with a lot of frustration and hate.  Look, I’m disgusted by the death of Floyd.  It was wrong.  The cop is in jail.  To use it to set off the powder keg..I guess it was just waiting for a spark. It boils down to disenfranchised people.  Set foot on my $1.4M piece of property with Ill intent...well, I guess I can show some of these thugs some NODaK roots...white tail running at 200 yards...hit 3 mallards in 30 seconds...

can i ask how you got your guns in Cali?  brought em with...bought locally? easy to get or lots of paperwork? i hear rogan talking about guns in california saying things have really changed in his 20 years in LA

I see that the ND Dept. of Health coronavirus page is now reporting serology test results. At present, the test results are approximately 3.3% positive. While I realize you can't necessarily extrapolate those numbers across the state, it is interesting to note that if accurate, that would be mean that the state is catching about 1 in 10 cases. That's in line with what many experts have speculated. Also, it would mean that the mortality rate in North Dakota would be .24 %--almost identical to what the CDC is now saying.

It appears currently that the only way to gather in large numbers at a church and avoid getting arrested is if you have the intention of burning it down
