Teh Squeaky Wheel
ShamingKitteh Friday salutations, GN!
Hope your power is on (or that it will be shortly).
I suspect the attempted “cancellation” of ~33% of all voters in this country will lead to wacky, fractured, slapstick, ding-a-ling, laff-riot consequences.
Well, at least the “riot” part.
Holy flurking schnitt…the people who run our country truly are malevolent morons. They’re not just playing with fire; they’re playing with freakin’ nukes.
I wonder if they’ve “war gamed” the likely results of making it impossible for tens of millions of Americans to simply live their lives? Cancelling banking, participation on social media, ruining their businesses, etc.
And let’s not forget the non-trival overlap between those who are threatened and the 2A. Or that desperate and wronged folks -- especially Americans -- are unlikely to simply roll over.
Still have power, altho Edison called at 1:30 AM to tell us that we would lose it imminently. One fire in Thousand Oaks area yesterday, but it looks like they knocked that one down.
Happy Friday (despite what teh kitteh says), Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Fatwa -- in regards to your questions about “wargaming”, I read an article the other day about an FBI informant who infiltrated the Weather Underground. He talked about a meeting he attended where all these Ivy League grads discussed what to do after they won the revolution. They hadn’t a clue -- they simply hadn’t thought things out that far. They eventually thought of re-education camps for those who wouldn’t get with the program. When the topic of what to do with those who resisted re-education came up, their response was that they would have to be eliminated. They casually discussed the logistics of the mass murder of what they estimated to be 25 million people.
These people don’t think beyond their immediate goal -- the destruction of America -- and don’t consider that individual Americans won’t “go gentle into that good night”.
Well so far we made it through the daylight hours without losing power, altho the flatlands have been doing without since about 9:30 this morning. No wind at the moment.
NRA files for bankruptcy -- that’s not good news even if it makes sense strategically.
Wow! Not good.
Sometimes it feels so good just to get in bed and close your eyes.
I can’t argue with you there!
