FEAR AND STUPIDITY*
note: yesterday I posted a article on my other blog on The Logistics Of Beyond Thunderdome
The more I think about it, the more I’m convinced that I might be mistaken by the level of stupidity in the gun owning public and may have over estimated it. While at the same token under estimated the level in the Left. Specifically in the matter of gun control. I was giving the gun owners very little credit, assuming they would cravenly once again give in to a semi ban. And I also just assumed the Left was no more retarded than usual wanting more guns banned. I believe that, actually, this time it will be different.
The problem with studying history to guess the future is that despite our best intentions we get the poem wrong ( as in, history doesn’t repeat but it often rhythms ). We look for patterns and probabilities, and then get the math wrong. History makes sense when you notice underlying themes-those are repeated over and over, like the few clichés that underpin all stories ( love conquers all, etc ). It is how those themes are played out it is so easy to get wrong. Which is probably why I love logistics so. You can’t screw up resource availability. It is far more certain than how the imploding empire script plays itself out.
Now, having excused my failures in such a profound and intellectual manner, so as to minimize its occurrence, allow me to summarize prior to discussing what has changed. Yankee Scum New Yorkers allowed themselves to be disarmed way over a hundred years ago. After allowing Prohibition to be passed, the cowardly pukes then made no noise when machineguns and silencers were made illegal unless you were rich. No protests were made with the gun control act in the 60’s, 80’s or 90’s ( and that is just the guns. I won’t get into the drug illegalization, the free speech impediments and etcetera ).
After Clinton made semi-auto’s illegal for the poor ( I don’t know what level of stupidity passes for federal rule these days, but the best thing that could have happened to baby snipers and child burners would have been to continue to allow the Chinese SKS to be imported. The things had the accuracy of a mail order Italian bolt action carbine and posed very little threat to the jack booted thugs. And the SKS was the only affordable semi allowed-actually, now that I think about it, it was just greed rather than stupidity. Clinton sold out to anyone like the Chinese military and domestic arms manufacturers. The gun companies are probably the ones pressuring for the ban ), and other than two bright boys that couldn’t hit the broad side of the White House with a gun or a plane, nobody protested the gun ban in any meaningful way.
Okay. There were a whole lot of burying guns going on, but does that count as protest, or tactics? The whole thing just left me wondering with a bad taste in my mouth about gun owners as a whole being able to actually shoot back if it became necessary. I get that they didn’t HAVE to, because as long as you have money you can have your precious semi-auto, and it is always smarter to NOT fight. I get that. I was just assuming all the squeals and bloviating over losing their shiny black carbines was noise that was probably never going to get backed up by real action. It was what has historically been the norm.
And up until Obammy, I think I would have been right. All talk and no action. All hat and no cattle. But here is where the left showed their ass and how stupid they are as a mob. They were correct that electing their less than fair haired immigrant Muslim would allow socialist health care ( as they perceived it, of course. Obammy paid back his handlers by keeping it All Profit ) and a full on social engineering to completely change the remaining culture, but they had no understanding there can be unintended consequences to any action.
For whatever reason, Obammy wasn’t allowed to institute gun control. The bankers probably didn’t want to spend any extra on guerrilla war here, but who knows ( perhaps I’ll have a better theory another time ). But everything else was allowed. The stupid transgender bathroom drama. Sure, dumbass, no blowback there, when you allow a still young and strong fathers little princess to be molested in public bathrooms. Not prosecuting Blacks for the Knock Out Game that was all to often deadly was pretty stupid. It allowed the Left’s goon squad to train for their guerrilla war against Whites. And then, going from unlimited Latino immigration ( most folks didn’t think about gang bangers, but instead Pedro the gardener ) to Muzzy immigration? Are you guys really, I mean REALLY, that humping stupid?
You guys JUST got done spending trillions in a futile war to convince us that Muslims are terrorists. You think you can have your cake and eat it too, just by claiming all behavior is nurture over nature and as soon as these ragheads passed through border control they turned into docile melting pot American democracy loving consumers? Your over educated ivory league douches might fall for that, but the ignorant redneck unemployed in his trailer has enough common sense to call BS on that one. If he isn’t already pissed you keep importing more workers as less jobs are available.
You can pretend unemployment is 4%, but you claimed that twenty years ago when there actually were jobs everywhere. Any damn fool with no education, only trained enough to scrub toilets or slap together assembly line parts, is smart enough to know from talking to his friends and looking at his towns job situation that he is being lied to. This stuff isn’t rocket science. The 9% straw bosses WANT to believe the official numbers. The statistics are not there for the masses. The masses are smart street-wise if not educationally. The numbers are there for the oppressor class to justify to themselves hating and screwing the poor ( “it is THEIR fault. They are lazy and on welfare. If they don’t want to help themselves, screw ‘em!” ). I’ll continue tomorrow.

Oops, I thought that was a scam. I'm venturing out today, as Kroger has 77cent chicken. I'll check my mail box and swing by the PO.Delete
as to some unemployment--husband's job way back when was hiring.ReplyDelete
man had lost his job, had kids, and was on welfare.
when he found out the several months' waiting period for health insurance he did not take the job.
said he couldn't leave his kids without health insurance that long.
lots of stupid policies in place that make transition from welfare to employment difficult.
that is just one example.
Once you are in the system, you are not allowed to be anything other than 100% dependent to receive any money.Delete
I am aged out, and not bilingual thus job prospects get slim. Considering the total amount slush money (pallet loads flown overseas) thrown about by all levels of gov't. A small stipend to keep my lights on and be fed is a small price compared to a screw loose running amuck in the streets (like the rogue cop Dornan in kalifornia bringing things to a stop) I consider it more of a safety valve, not socialism-welfare. It is all dept money created out of thin air, so kick the bucket down the road and where do I sign up?Delete
I completely agree. It is a safety value and we need it more than ever because of the growing inequality.Delete
Remember the house I bought 6 years ago and everyone thought I was crazy. It's paid off! Triple payments for 6 long hard years. I am exempt from property taxes so I pay home owners insurance, that's it. I own enough tools and a shop so I could go back to work if needed. I have skills that no one can take away from me. That's about the best I can do! While my retirement dollars keep coming I will invest in tangible worthwhile stuff to safeguard my future. When the well runs dry, I'll be as prepared as anyone. Buy land, get some silver stacked, arm yourself, have some rations-spend your available money wisely. That's all you can do!ReplyDelete
Damn, has it been that long? I'm sure I was one of the doubters. But you kept the RV as a BOV if I recall correctly so it was never a huge gamble. But I'm impressed you got a house paid off in the length of a used mobile home loan.Delete
Please explain how you're exempt from property taxes. I've never heard of this.Delete
Got a VA loan, no money down and 3.5 percent! Made a lot of sacrifices so I could make huge extra payments every month. I still have the motorhome! Keep good batteries and tires on it. You never know?Delete
Hmm, I would have thought you'd have needed more money down to get it paid off that quick. As for a BOV living in the LA East area, yeh. I had one just for Carson City and there is no comparison in population ( too bad the Cali refugees found and swamped the region twenty years ago-very mild region temp wise with a great watershed and, for the state, good soil ). Thanks California, again!Delete
anonymous, I don't pay property taxes because of my disabled veteran status.Delete
I'm surprised that tight RINO twat Sandaval allowed that one to stay on the books.Delete
Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.ReplyDelete
I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to

The design and style look great though! Hope you get the
problem solved soon. Many thanks
