Denninger Points Out The Credibility Issue
In one of his essential posts today, Karl Denninger points out a painful truth:
...Forget it folks, unless you're planning on going Rambo. And if you're going to do that, you may as well get started now. You'll go to prison or die - but over time people dying for what they believe is nothing new. We call them terrorists when they lose - and freedom fighters when they win. In 1776 a bunch of men decided they had enough, and they pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honors. They, in aggregate, won and thus are "freedom fighters" - but some of them also died.
All the noise I hear - all words and bluster behind keyboards but no gunshots - tell me that nobody's prepared to do that. So quit babbling about it. All that does is get you on the No-Fly list and a visit from the guys in the black (and armored) Escalades. Don't bother with "sound and fury" nonsense. You're not only wasting your breath you'll get arrested - for nothing...
You, your spouse, and your children keep getting raped and torn in every orifice by the political class and their minions because they can.
Every single one of them -- from the newest TSA stooge to the members of the highest councils of business and government -- knows they can take your money, your dignity, and your future from you and your family, and you will do literally nothing to stop any of them.
At what point does repeated inaction become consent, if not outright enjoyment?
Hint: Look for that point in your rear-view mirror.
Take this article, change "gun owner" to "citizen", and apply.
And your meditation tonight is on this phrase (Google it if you must):
