    I learn so much about the USA just listening to John Oliver. (even get a laugh about his comments on New Zealand although Steven Colbert on NZ is better). Perhaps it takes a sort of outsider to get an objective viewpoint on American society. Thanks Mr Oliver

    Why is it that all of america is so hard for 'Alba an Aigh' on bagpipes? You are literally playing what would basically be another countries national anthem there, if britian ever could let willingly go of teriotory outside of their borders. EVERY time somebody plays bagpipes in american media, it's that. AFAIK it even was the default for a lot of military funerals if you wanted the bagpipes and didn't specify anything else. EVEN SCOTTS THEMSELVES don't play that much 'Scottland the Brave' on their bagpipes. PSA; There it's usually 'For auld lang syne' that you can't escape being multiphonorously funneled into your earholes at hazardous decible levels.

    This is a very serious situation, Barr aligning him with any President. he is an asshole that at will spews bullshit and uses word salad. to allow the particular President and himself. to have complete control and power to whatever they wish at a wimm. this is very dangerous and should never be allowed to happen no doubt. (an example) of his bullshit is him trying to justify himself by saying no tear gas was used and pepper spay was ok. I've got news for him pepper spay is just as bad as tear gas.

    I agree entirely with this characterization of Barr. But one thing I think is missed here: Demonizing line police officers makes as much sense (as in no sense at all) as when people spit on ordinary soldiers when they came home from Viet Nam. The courts can deal very well with police officers who go WAY over the line. Think Michael Slager/Walter Scott, NOT Derek Chauvin/George Floyd. But when social media becomes Judge, jury, & executioner, things go off the rails.....as in the very real, unjustified crucifixion of Chauvin. The problem lies with management.....NOT labor.

    Trump doesn't know ANY articles in the Constitution! He only spoke about article 2 repeatedly because he had just learned about it. But article 2 DOESN'T give him the "power" to "DO WHATEVER" he wants to do!!! However, Barr and the GQP allowed him to do whatever he wanted.
