The days of simple, forgivable disagreements on the golf course or at the company Christmas party seem to be fading into the ether at a pace unprecedented in our political lifetimes.

Nowadays, we seem to be stuck in some sort of perpetual hatred, with kerosene soaked fuses in every which direction.  At the first sign of anger, we return to the default, “burn it to the ground” speed that we imagine exists way beyond the rabbit on the classic Briggs and Stratton push and you shall receive mower.  This figurative switchblade has sent a number of Americans down a path of consternation and uncertainty.  Will our nation be free from the violence reserved for revolutionaries, or in on the act?

The White House said Sunday that a small plane that the military intercepted because it flew near President Trump’s New Jersey golf resort was deemed not a threat by law enforcement officials.

A U.S. Air Force F-16 fighter jet on Saturday intercepted a small, general aviation plane near Trump’s private golf resort in Bedminster, where the president stayed this weekend.

Lindsay Walters, a White House spokeswoman, said the plane had entered a “no-fly” space too close to the golf resort. Law enforcement officials interviewed the pilot upon landing, and determined he was not a threat.

Given the incredible rate at which the liberal left is multiplying, the precautionary fighter escort may be a bit more common in the coming months than previously considered.

Over the course of the last several weeks, the “resistance” to President Trump has continually gained speed and stamina.  While today’s incident was proven to be a non-threat, there is little doubt that an issue such as this one will be incoming in the coming months.
