I'd like to start by asking all those who are currently living in right-wing hell-holes in this country to consider moving to the Northeast Kingdom of our once-great country. This began as an invite to the folks in Nevada who are burdened with sharing their state with Cliven Bundy and his gang of over-armed and under-educated militia members. I'm also asking all those who are unhappy living under the rule of King Andrew to consider moving to one of these right-wing hell-holes where you undoubtedly be happier. I'm thinking of starting an exchange program. Let's just divide up. Shirts and skins.
So here is the Cliven Bundy update:
1)Authorities call bullshit on Bundy's land claims.
2)Militia members threaten members of the community.
3)Civil war is threatened between Bundy supporters.
4)Authorities prepare for charges to be filed against all involved.
5)Violence spreads to Utah
If we can summarize what’s happened since the spotlight moved on, we
see the ongoing spread of lies and violence on the one hand — which is
completely unsurprising. The almost-shooting war that Bundy supporters
got themselves into is precisely the reason that the Second Amendment
doesn’t mean what they think it means: As John Locke’s social contract theory explained, civil society was created because individual force cannot
guarantee peace and security — even among the supposedly like-minded.
Hence, the turning of violence against one another was just as
predictable as its threatened spread to Utah as well.
On the other
hand, we see a deliberately restrained, but methodical law enforcement
process underway. Let’s hope it stays that way, because nothing damages
the law as badly as those who abuse its authority, or use it recklessly.
But let’s also hope they don’t take too long in beginning to bring
folks to justice. Hatred, lies and violence already have too big a head
start. We don’t need to let them get any further ahead.
forgot to mention that, apparently, fighting the tyranny that is Barack
Obama's federal government doesn't pay anything. I mean, Bundy is not
paying his grazing fees why would he pay these yahoos. So, if anyone
passing through here would like to slip a few bucks in the tip jar of these domestic terrorists...
The life of an ever-vigilant anti-government armed patriot is hard. And
by hard, I mean dull and unproductive. Also, not very profitable. Maybe
that's why all those guys hanging out cleaning their guns in Nevada are
now begging hard-working Americans to please give them some money.
I would, but I already gave to SPLC.
