Avoid the Mess

Quote of the Day

I’ve seen some pretty tough enemies before in my life, and I’m not scared of the gun lobby.

Wes Moore
Maryland Governor

Maryland Gov. Wes Moore says he’s ‘not scared of the gun lobby’ after the NRA sued him over the state’s new gun-control law

This is the problem. They have nothing to lose from infringing upon the rights of millions of people. This is why 18 USC 241 and 242 exist. These laws put some bite into the denial of civil rights. But, of course, since the infringers are essentially the enforcers of the laws, they can safely ignore them.

I don’t think they are looking far enough into the future. At some point people will “vote from the rooftops” and things get very messy. It would be far better for the laws to be enforced and we could all avoid the mess.

  1. I think it is clear that “Laws are for the little people. ‘We’ are exempt”. Until that attitude ends, there will be problems.

  2. VAGA, Vigilante America Great Again. Our forefathers had to shoot them to get them to recognize our rights. It’s the nature of the tyrant to never stop until stopped.
    That is THEIR choice.
    Since the beginning the Ables of the world have just gone about doing what it takes to survive and get along.
    And there is always some jealous-ass Cain that can’t and won’t do for himself.
    The real problem is we have been brainwashed into thinking getting rid of their type is a big deal. It isn’t.
    They don’t lose sleep over getting rid of you. In fact they actively plan it. (Bill Gates, cough, Klaus Schwab, cough, invasion, cough, cough.)
    And they through law out the window shortly after the ink was dry on the constitution.
    Let’s face it. If you can read; “The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed” And come up with some other meaning?
    Your an IDIOT.
    And you act on that idea?
    Your a CRIMINAL. And you should be getting a criminal’s reward.

  3. Stolen from over at Rolf’s Gab feed;
    “Middle class America is no less violent than any other people. They seem passive because they’re results oriented. They rise not out of blood frenzy but to solve the otherwise insoluble. Their methods of choice are good will, cooperation, forbearance, negotiation and finally, appeasement, roughly in that order. Only when these fail to end the abuse do they revert to blowback. And they do so irretrievably. Once the course is set and the outcome defined, doubt is put aside. The middle class is known, condemned actually, for carrying out violence with the efficiency of an industrial project where bloody destruction at any scale is not only in play, it’s a metric. Remorse is left for the next generation, they’ll have the leisure for it. We’d like to believe this is merely dark speculation. History says it isn’t.”

    Damn I miss that guy! Thanks, Rolf!

  4. Ever tell a toddler, “No, you can’t do that”?

    Did they ever listen the first time?

    Did they listen before you had to discipline them to make the lesson stick?

    That’s the type of personality we’re dealing with. The courts undoing their bad laws and saying, “No, you can’t do that,” does nothing to ensure they don’t just do it again. Usually (as with all my kids when they were toddlers) with small variations so they’re not quite doing the exact same thing.

    In Oregon, Measure 114 is on hold due to Constitutional challenges in multiple courts. So what does the Legislature do? Introduce Senate Bill 348, which is an almost-verbatim copy-paste of Mz.114, only with increased fees and a clause that says legal/Constitutional challenges must be brought in Marion County (think: Salem, and a Democrat stronghold with Democrat judges).

    In a perfect world, if Mz.114 gets struck down as unconstitutional, that should be irrefutable evidence of 18 U.S.C. 241 (Conspiracy against rights) violations on the part of the authors of SB 348, its supporters, and any legislator who voted for it. And that evidence would feed indictments and trials.

    Sometimes, the toddlers just need to have their hands slapped before they listen.

  5. “At some point people will “vote from the rooftops” and things get very messy.”

    I rather strongly suspect voting will occur from a great many more locations other than rooftops, become a grat deal more then “messy,” and occur sooner than many expect.

    As our host points out, “plan accordingly.”

  6. “At some point people will “vote from the rooftops” and things get very messy.”

    ….once that faucet gets turned.
    It’s gonna be tuff to turn it off.

    …..and therein lies the rub.

  7. Study history. It’s VERY rare for tyrannical people to voluntarily relinquish power. It invariably requires violence and bloodshed. Such people don’t believe in the “rule of law” thus they simply ignore any laws they don’t like. Laws are merely tools they can use to force OTHER PEOPLE to do what they want. The only language tyrannical minds hear, listen to or respect is the language of violence. Refuse to
    speak the language of violence….and you are guaranteed to be enslaved.
