President Demolishes Statue of Liberty. Declares Antifa a Terrorist Organization After Riots Become Violent.

President Demolishes Statue of Liberty. Declares Antifa a Terrorist Organization After Riots Become Violent.

After being asked why he would actually destroy The Statue of Liberty, The president said, “If you take down one historical American monument, why not another? Would you prefer I take down Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln? Who draws that line? Do violent Antifa and Alt-Left protesters get to decide what gets taken down? Is this only their country? No! This is a nation of laws!” Riot Police and SWAT were quickly overwhelmed by protesters and counter protesters. After the first full 24 hours of rioting, the National Guard was called in to subdue the chaos with tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets, and electric tasers.  This had little effect and only seemed to anger the crowds and intensify the conflict.

Far Flung - Guest Post by TCC Edwards

In 2169, five massive colony ships are filled with volunteers and employees of the Ulysses Space Corp. Each ship has a faster-than-light jump drive and can cover the 12 light years between Earth and the Tau Ceti system in the blink of an eye. Supplies, colonists and crew are loaded, and the five ships make the jump across the light-years. Only four of them, however, arrive at the destination. Far Flung is the story of the ship that vanished.
