Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
Bit of a tiff going on on teh intarhwhebz these days on the meaning and status of”Civil War” and secession. Apparently T.L. Davis wrote up his perspective vis-a-vis the upcomi ng spicytimes, and then the ever acerbic Aesop stepped up to the plate. The links are over at “News to Keep You Out of The Camps” so I won’t link ’em… most of you visiting here have probably already read them.
For the TL;DR crowd, the baseline is Davis lays out the ‘how-who-where-why-when’ of the possibilities of secession. Aesop came back in the comments with his usual wit and demeanor, and launched into a minor tear of ‘How’d that whole secession thing work out last time doofus?’ at Davis. Davis responded with another point by point takedown of Aesop, and this A.M. there’s the response to the responses.
Davis thinks secession can work, and will happen, and be bloody, but we’ll come out ok in the end. He also thinks that voting and lawsuits can help to keep it civilized
Aesop thinks it’s gonna be a shitfestivus of Rwanda times Srebrenicia, Tribal slaughter levels. No real happy ending until Thunderdome is achieved. Two parties enter, one leaves.
I’m with Aesop for the most part on this one.
We just saw what the whole “Vote harder” shit came to… And lawsuits? Don’t make me fucking laugh that hard. Me poor gallbladder can’t take that much of a beating… Fuckin’ courts are nothing more than Glorified Star Chambers that’ll be utilized to instill terror in the Deplorables, in order to keep some of the more ‘malleable’ folks from picking up pitchforks and torches, nevermind rifles and flammenwerfers. And the police? The fuzz are nothing more than a Praetorian Guard at this point, as well as revenue generators for the Powers that Be… The DotMil is part of the new Praetorians… Especially at the higher-higher ranks, who think that they’ll be spared the neck-stretching that’ll eventually happen.
And add on, one addendum that I fucked up… It -wasn’t- a Lt. Col. on the gun that took out Nicolae Ceaușescu and his frau… It was a Captain and two Sergeant-Majors: Captain Ionel Boeru, Sergeant-Major(s) Georghin Octavian and Dorin-Marian Cirlan.
Looks like the lower ranks were the triggermen.
No wonder they’re trying to hand out bullshit awards now. Not that that’ll make one whit of a difference. I knew some guys back in the day that would have loved an opportunity to cap a Pol… hell, even back in the Clinton Days they knew the line-doggies purely hated the politicians. When Clinton went to visit anywhere the first thing they did was make sure to shake down the grunts to makes sure –no-one– had a loaded weapon around the Philanderer in Chief.
And now? Just -how many- empty mag-wells do you see in D.C.? I honestly think I’ve see 3 or 4 actual Mags in the M-4 wells… and even then, I’d be seriously questioning if there’re any beebees in the mag? Highly doubtful IMO. In fact I’d really wonder if there IS a ASP/AHA? That’s an Ammunition Supply Point or Ammunition Holding Area. Nearest ASP I would think is the Navy Yard or the Marine Barracks at Eighth and “I”… ASPs usually are the big fuckin bunkers that hold vast amounts of boom-boom, while AHAs are the locally placed small, guarded pile of small arms supply/resupply… In the Sinai we had sealed pallets of ammo in each bunker for potential “Oh shit!” moments. If there was an actual attempt at a legit overthrow, them National Guard folks, if they have to run back a couple of city blocks to get a basic load? Sheeeeeeeeee-it… the ambulances and casualties from heart attacks alone will choke the ER’s of the greater D.C. metro area hospitals for days…
I’m thinking that the ‘kickoff’ of this will be a complete economic breakdown. Once cash ain’t worth shit, all hell will break loose, whilst our self-designated betters head to the bunkers and compounds, much reverting to the Medieval Mode of living. Rich burgers locked safely in their keeps, guarded by paid gunslingers… HOPING that they have enough power and money to weather the upcoming storm… now, methinks they miscalculated a bit… no matter how much money they have, eventually them hardasses with the guns? Yeah, they’re gonna off them buggers and take over.
The current Enemedia demonization I personally think is part of the greater plan writ LARGEStart now by making at least half of the country eeeee-vil. Evil, by even biblical standards cannot be negotiated with. It must be destroyed, and the current hyping of how evil one half of ‘Murica is being portrayed heads us into the next phase for them.
The initial play however is going to be an further inflammation of the stupid divide… people like me are going to be demonized in the Propaganda Media as ‘hoarders’ when the food runs short… the fucking localities will send out the fuzz to ‘confiscate for the greater good’ my supplies to help ‘feed the poor unfortunate ones’ (i.e. stupid niggers who couldn’t prep to save their lives)… the Grasshopper/Ants situation writ nationally, with the Propaganda Media being the prime movers of the story… I mean isn’t it ironic that the hardcore preppers of the Nation, for the most part, are conservative eeeeeeeeeee-vil right wingers who <GASP!!!> have stockpiles of guns and ammunition and oh yeah, they got food.
And they’re gonna come for all of the above. First the ammo… taxes and whatnot… lawfair to outlaw boolits… make it impossible to get pew to throw out of the pew-pew. Then the guns… violent intolerant raaaaaaay-cist gun clingers… and then, right around then, they’ll crash the system. And expect that the newly-disarmed population will give up their carefully prepped foods and such whatnot…or else.
And ya know what? That’s gonna be the end of that particular brand of stupid.
They’ve been accelerating it, for whatever reason… I mean if they had waited a while, they’d be far more assured… dunno what the hubbub is about bub, but for whatever reason, they’re making a last-ditch grab for the brass ring, by hook and/or crook, and either way, it will not end well.
Hell, I just rejoined the gym today.P.T. even while broken. I gotta ruckit.
Oh, and By The Way, One Year Ago I did Something.
Happy Anniversary Baby.
