Re: Racism in America Becoming Fashionable Again

My husband, born in 1954, grew up in a small NE Iowa town which was mostly settled by Czechs. It was just common for them to speak Czech at home and with his grandparents. Half of the stories my sweetie told me of growing up in his hometown were told in Czech which he would then re-tell in English. ...

I don't know how it may affect protests here in the Twin Cities, but over the weekend the weather was clear and cool with low humidity. Now it's 80° and the humidity is climbing. Basically this will be a hot, humid week.

Re: President* Trump - *Impeached

IANAL, but I can see laws defining Domestic Terrorism. And I can see laws about labeling groups as Foreign Terrorist Organizations. But defining a group as some sort of domestic Terrorist Organization doesn't seem to be a legal thing.

Not that Antifa is a legal organization anyway.

I'm confused.
