The fencing around our Capitol remains. Washington DC is still an occupied zone. Occupied at the request of our elected representatives. To protect themselves from us. Or something.
Every week there are articles claiming that the Capitol Police, or some other agency, has received intelligence indicating that some Conservative group plans to attack members of government or government property or... .
Of course it isn't happening, no attacks are taking place. But the government is keeping their soft brained followers in a state of anguish, making them believe that an attack is imminent. And the attacks won't come. But the news will continue to carry the stories about the credible threats to our elected officials made by the radicalized military arm of the Conservative Party. Or something.
But it isn't. It's optics. It's fear mongering. It is propaganda. Herr Goebbels would be impressed.
And the soft brained followers of Liberalism will continue to believe.
I had a conversation with a friend this morning about Seuss, Potato Head, the Coca-Cola polar bear, etc. He is a true believer. He said "cancel culture" does not exist. I asked him where #metoo went? Still there, he said. I asked if he was sure. He said yes. I told him I had not heard one peep out of #metoo since they sold their souls to the Devil to make sure that Creepy Uncle Joe, a fella who is antithetical to everything they stand for, was the Democrat nominee... He looked at me like... Seriously? I said yeah, you fuckers are a bunch of hypocrites. I told him that there wasn't a person among them who wouldn't walk over their dying mother to fuck their syphilitic sister.
But anyway... They live in a world where ethics and morality are situational. Where truth is fluid, depending on the needs of the day. Where the ends justify the means and where having a conscience is frowned upon...
But I do think that a lot of folks from all sides, who are not Progressives, are starting to question all of the "cancellations"... :)
And Biden is coming after your guns. I don't think I need to post any links to prove that.
I hope that you are all writing those letters and making those phone calls to your elected officials letting them know that you are opposed to any and all gun control. As screwed up as the NRA has been at times, they seem to have a couple of decent communication campaigns going right now. You can easily get involved using their pre-written letters to your representatives. All you have to do is fill in a little info, and click. Same with GOA.
Support your local advocacy groups. 1000 voices carry more weight than one. Here in Iowa we have the Iowa Firearms Coalition. Great bunch of folks. Hard workers. Looks like Iowa may get a Constitutional Amendment to our State Constitution protecting our gun rights. We are one of 6 states that do not have an amendment protecting our gun rights. Also looks like we may get Constitutional carry this year. Thanks in large part to IFC and a few very active members. Because, honestly, gun owners are the worst people to get to advocate for themselves, to write those letters and make those calls. We tend to sit back and say that they can't come for our guns, and if they do, by God, "it ain't happening!" Molon Labe, mother fucker!... You know the drill.
Truth is, when someone from some agency shows up at your door with guns to take your guns, 99.99999999% will comply. Without a whimper. Because the alternative is to die in a hail of bullets from folks with "the law on their side". For nothing. Who knows what the newspapers will say about it? Make up something outlandish and go with that... LOL.
I think about a lot of things. There are a lot of things that I want to say. There are a lot of things that need to be said. Personally, I'm exhausted. I want to take a nap. :)
