Well, for starters, let's find these pieces of shit, arrest, try, and imprison them.

This is what happens when the rules don't matter anymore and there are no consequences for thuggish behavior. It's only going to get worse.
Go armed, be safe.
Hey bud, give it up. We lost! I'm as big a fool as you are but even I know nobody was buying our anti-American crap the last four years and we're just embarrassing ourselves now with our sad, misguided hatred. Gawd we suck!

Part of the bhus drivers training should be geared towards being able to take a punch. This type of action is normal in our society, so bus drivers must adapt.

Soon we'll need bus marshals. Now there's a good job for some of our wounded veterans! They know how to use a weapon. They could sit a couple of seats behind the driver and pretend to read the paper but have their hand ready to fire.

This is really a good idea. Of-course it will never fly; bus drivers' union would insist on having them as members and company would balk about possible firearms repercussions. Security guard companies would balk imagining lost work. And there would be a host of other insurmountable impediments/regulations and naysayers. Ain't America great!

Cross train the drivers as zoo keepers so when the monkeys get out of hand they can control them.
