From Vox today:
"... I find it morbidly amusing that in the middle of a global economic downturn, with the world gearing up for a whole series of shooting wars and Americans openly arming to defend themselves against a corrupt federal government..."
;",,,Americans openly arming themselves against a corrupt federal government..."
Can't get much plainer that that.
Damn. Looks like I'm not going to be able to just get a bit older and die in peace.
An idea growing in popularity among some old fogies is to take a few corrupt bastards with you when you go. A patriotic gesture, sort of. And a way to get into the history books. Not my cup of tea, but I'll bet some real money there a quite a few out there getting ready to do just that. And the fact that when someone is more than ready to die and/or with nothing to lose, they are almost impossible to stop.
An old world curse:"May you live in interesting times"
It just may be that those interesting times are almost upon us. .\\
