I certainly don’t expect any outrage from my fellow Murkans. They’re too busy getting ready for the Super Bowl to care about creeping tyranny.
But a few people I admire are plenty outraged. Some have even taken action.
The first step is admitting there’s a problem. Otherwise, just move along folks and get back to your shopping. There’s nothing to see here!
Sometimes you just gotta dig a hole. But keep one eye on your neighbors – they might not be as friendly as they appear!
Greg Gutfeld is a tool. Mark Manfield beat me to it so just go ahead and read his critique of Gutfeld’s shamelessly statist monologue.
The collapse has begun and last week may have been the tipping point.
If Murkans take to the streets like they have in the Ukraine, then suddenly it will all become clear to you why they want your guns and your metadata…in advance.
Here they come, the brainless power-drunk gun-grabbers! This DeLeon fool has absolutely no idea what he’s doing (the cop behind him knows it too).
They want your “ghost guns” kids!
What I find very interesting about yesterday’s mall shooting in Columbia, Maryland is that it occurred less than 24 hours after that state’s legislators began debate on a new law that would enact a 50% tax on all ammunition and firearms (what few guns are left for legal purchase after last year’s ban went into effect).
Surely you don’t think any of this is a coincidence, do you?
If you still think the surveillance state is a good thing, congratulations! You’re in the minority (along with poor blind and misguided folks who think Congress is doing a great job and Dear Leader is the best President ever.) Enjoy that company!
Face it, either you’re for the 4th Amendment or you’re against it. And if you’re against my Constitution, you’re the enemy that I and millions like me have sworn an oath to defeat. Hope you’re ready for that…
I’m embarrassed. Two years ago I hyped a coronal mass ejection as a major threat to civilization. Here we are at the peak of an 11-year solar activity cycle and nothing…is…happening.
So which is worse? Getting blasted by streams of charged plasma burping out from an angry sun? Or living on a planet that is slipping slowly into a new mini ice age?
This BBC news video explains it well. Worst case scenario is some unholy mash-up of Global Warming wreaking havoc on the climate and a new Maunder Minimum. Somehow, I doubt these phenomena will cancel each other out. So dress warm and take an umbrella. It’s going to get weird out there!
Samuel Whittmore is my personal hero. Read his epitaph for yourself. He took out three Redcoats on the very first day of the Revolution and then fell on the field of battle. An 80 year old patriot sacrificing himself for his country. Think about that for a minute.
The best part? He lived for another 18 years!
Take a good look at this hideous mug. The she-witch before you is a so-called “journalist” known as Ruth Marcus and she really doesn’t like Ed Snowden’s attitude. In fact, she believes Ed is afflicted with a personality disorder. Sounds like an ad hominem to me. “Insufferable”? Really Ruth? Is that the best you can do?
Glenn Greenwald roasts Ruth on a spit in this nice little interview. The points raised are good ones. I particularly enjoyed the mention of Daniel Ellsberg because he’s who Snowden is rhyming with the best (in the grander historical sense).
I hereby add another prediction to my list: Snowden will return in 2014. Why he left the country in the first place is none of my business but it’s pretty easy to figure out. Let’s just add up some facts: a) the Whistleblower Protection Act doesn’t apply to contractors; b) Bradley (“Chelsea”) Manning was tortured and then sent to rot in a Murkan gulag for sticking around and “facing the music”; c) Dear Leader has shown a fondness for extra-judicially assassinating US citizens who step out of line. Does any of that move you a bit closer to sympathy? OK, maybe not. A few of you have told me you want to see Snowden dead (which makes you simpatico with Dear Leader and his heinous gang of regime thugs – congratulations!). I think Snowden will be treated like the hero he is once all the truth comes out and Murkans wake up to this regime’s tyranny. I think amnesty is the right call here, not assassination. And some fairly important folks agree with me.
Ellsberg is practically a saint and the poster boy of whistle blowers everywhere. Snowden will be too, in time.
Remember that jackass Bateman? Well, he’s doing it again. Braying long and loud about all those bad guns in Murka and why they need to be gathered up pronto…for our own good.
This guy is an idiot and should be formally reprimanded by his chain of command for using his rank and uniform in a political setting. Also, a swift kick in the ass might be called for too. Here’s a good shot at the man’s backside.
I can’t help but think that statist sycophants in uniform (and there are more than a few, trust me!) are itching for that “domestic operation” (under DHS control of course) that will simultaneously boost their careers while tidying up the country of all those pesky “patriot” types and other “domestic terrorists” like you and me.
Gee, ya think it’s safe to assume that Bateman is not an Oathkeeper? It’s also quite obvious from reading his latest piece in Esquire that Bateman has never heard of another country (yes Bob, there ARE more than two!) where there is an assault rifle in every home and it’s one of the safest places on Earth. Bateman can pack his bags for his beloved Uttar Pradesh (bon voyage Bob!) but I’ll take Murka (or Switzerland) any day.
Go here for your best defense against tyrannical do-gooders like Bateman and his ilk. Membership isn’t cheap but it sure feels good.
