Cedar:
You might want to stay away from the National Mall today.

Two totally unrelated protests are happening.The unrelated events could bring thousands of demonstrators to the area stretching between the Lincoln Memorial and the United States Capitol. Both have attracted widespread attention.

Fans of Insane Clown Posse, known as "Juggalos," are holding the "Juggalo March" to protest their classification as a gang by the FBI and Department of Justice. A 2011 report on emerging trends by the FBI's National Gang Intelligence Center listed Juggalos under "non-traditional gangs."

The pro-Trump rally, labeled the "Mother of All Rallies," has been billed as an opportunity for participants to "demand protection for traditional American culture while they express their love for the United States and the America First agenda," according to its website. The event will also include speakers and musical performances near the Washington Monument in the center of the Mall.

So... we're talking about promoting massive credit card debt, arguing politics with family members on Thanksgiving, and thinking a loudmouth with a website trumps a peer reviewed scientific study?  Because that seems to be traditional American culture.

Mr. Bill:
Political comments in Political Discussion only, please.  Keep this thread clear for emergency information.

Mr. Bill:
Amtrak train derailment in DuPont, WA (near Tacoma).  Deaths reported but statistics unknown.  First day of service on a new route through the area.  A passenger says the train hit a truck, and it has derailed onto I-5 blocking all the southbound lanes.
