Who can afford to travel the nation just to 'protest'?

A lot of people, especially local people. A lot more people apparently can afford to travel to DC to protest than can afford to travel to attend Trump's inauguration.

People on political payrolls ... appearing to coordinate the violent ones.

Bullshit. Link to non-RW media video or STFU.

Many have been filmed at protest after protest, around the nation. Like gromit deadheads.

Been happening for years, but Obama's justice department had no interest, so they got overconfident. As I said in another post, conspiracy laws are a bitch, the crime spreads like herpes.

Yes, many have been filmed protesting. But no one has been filmed getting paid. That is just a right-wing nutjob conspiracy.

Bold assertion. Where do those chanting morons get their pot money? Many individuals have been filmed in many cities, there is clearly a roaming cluster fuck of fuckwits.

Now that the cops have all these phones, we'll see how far down the rabbit hole actually goes. Good news...

It is MUCH more bold to claim you have to pay people to protest Trump than to claim you don't have to pay them. Still waiting for my paycheck.

The secretary of state issued the memo after a Hawaii judge blocked the Trump administration's revised travel ban on citizens from six predominantly Muslim countries.

The ban is for six predominately islamic extremist countries. Are you bigoted against Muslims or something?

WTF? The countries are not "predominantly islamic extremist." That would require more than 50% of the population to be extremists.

I was once asked to list every address I had ever lived at. That's just about impossible unless you stayed in the house into which you were born for your whole life.

Um, no. I've lived at 11 addresses and I can recall all except two that were temporary relocations (and I can partially recall them). Granted, it is a ridiculous request. Perhaps all the addresses you've lived at for the last seven years?

So your assumption is that Facebook et al demand birth certificates, picture id, fingerprints and DNA prior to opening an account in any particular name. There is real insanity in using something like social media at borders where the validity of any social media account ie what is you name, John Smith, provide social media account details and passwords, I have none, liar John Smith is all over the place, prepare to be strip searched and anal probed and be held in custody until you provide details for all social media accounts tied to John Smith or variants of John Smith. So basically guilty for the entirety of social media until you can prove which accounts are not your account.

Well they could look at all the pictures of John Smith and see if any are obviously you, or if any of them posted about just visiting the country you're coming from. Of course this assumes you're dumb enough to have privacy settings that allow unknowns to peruse your profile.
