This is the bravest posting I have ever done. This is a predictive posting, not a call to arms. This all can be easily avoided, but it won't be. Instead, the powers that be will seek to punish those who call out the problem. The people of the United States apparently are in a mood for violent action. I do not agree with them (how can you agree with ignorant idiots). But, if you look around the country and listen to the news as it filters through the talking heads, you will notice that now, every few days, there are mass- more than four at a time- shootings around the country. I think these are the result of frustrations of helplessness of the people, both left and right. The people are frustrated by overreaching and out-of-control bureaucracy, egged on by some irresponsible politicians and many press types and rabble rousers.
All the responsible parties, and if I say on both sides this will be meant by the press to be the Right side, need to calm down. The United States is obviously on the brink of a different kind of revolution. A revolution by dribbles. This revolution is not going to evince itself by a bombardment of a government installation in a harbor somewhere, but by small groups taking their frustrations out on their fellow citizens. Many will shoot up a local government office. Many others will start shooting policemen for grievances real and perceived. As unemployment goes higher, you can add to the mix those who lost jobs because a few rich business owners want to milk an extra few bucks profit by hiring foreign labor. The grievances are unending and it seems that our bureaucrats, politicians and press just support the grievous practices instead of ending them.
Black Friday, a created shopping day after Thanksgiving, has resulted in the populace going shopping --- for guns. On black Friday about 200,000 rifles, guns, and pistols were bought by the populace. That is enough weaponry to equip the U.S. Marine Corps and have a couple of divisions left over. This is not going to result in drastic aggressive action, but it may end up as a drastic defensive action. The problem that must be recognized is that of the current administration. Baseless or not, there are many people in this country that are waiting. for the administration to seize on the current situation and do something stupid, such as declaring martial law. That declaration would not necessarily result in a calming of the situation, but outright civil war. Now we know that Obama fits the definition of stupidity and you can't fix stupid. So let just everybody cool it until after the next election and keep the name calling and incitement down.
Meanwhile, we've been through this before:
"Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition and we'll all Stay Free."
"Trust in God, but Keep Your Powder Dry."
