Exclamation Thin veneer of civilization, part 2

Quote :
Rioting, looting, burning down stores and shooting police officers – is this about to become the “new normal” in America? What we just witnessed happen in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri is a prime example of how quickly the streets of America can descend into chaos.

There is so much anger and frustration in this country, especially among our young people, that all it takes is a “trigger event” to spark a wildfire. ...

It doesn't take a natural disaster or loss of the power grid or even a sale on the newest Nikes. Revolution against the police state can do it too.

Watching societal devolution occur in real time over in Missouri has brought some unpleasant thoughts from the back of my mind to the forefront. As much as I don't like to admit, I am quite worried about my little town when TSHTF. The natives around here are on edge as well, having been fleeced of anything resembling money by the PTB, and relegated to the back of the jobs bus. Many more folks are unemployed than the government cares to report, as many as 12 percent around these parts, making for a very restless bunch of twenty something men and women.

Don't get me wrong here, these folks are the very same people I would see working for a living wage on one of the three bases around here, only they are now laid off on a permanent basis with few alternatives left to pursue beyond menial employment for a fraction of their former wages. The jealousy is palpable and the fury just under the surface. I quite expect to have a Ferguson of our own if shit doesn't turn around soon.

A man can only take just so much. Everyone has their breaking point.

I'm not sure if there was much veneer here to start with.

Maybe if it wasn't so dark in there, they wouldn't all be fighting.

Desperation is a cruel motivator.

Ray Dalio has been talking about political polarization on the back of economic disparity in the current central bank insanity. The last I saw, he actually talked about the possibility of a violent revolution. I thought that was a bit over the top, but watching the impeachment circus play out here in the USA, I'm not so sure. I remember back when Bill Clinton was in office and a large swath of the country thought he was too crooked to stay in office. Passions were fierce, but eventually blew over. Life went on.

Is today more of the same, or is it different - more extreme? I'm honestly not sure. The folks in DC - and I mean all of them (#bothsides) are playing with fire right now.

Slick willie was in the last 1/2 of his second term when his impeachment was going on while donnie boy is in his 1st term still, I think that makes a bit of difference. I think the goings on in Virginia right now are even more volatile than anything that might come from the impeachment though. I do think the communists in VA will back down even more though before all is said & done, at least enough to take things back from the boiling point it is at now before it spills over. I could be wrong though. I wouldd love to see people fighting for their rights for once anyway.

I watched most of the video. A lot of the bills he's talking about sound blatantly unconstitutional and I'm guessing will eventually be struck down. Of course, that takes time though unless some big dog like the GOA, NRA or whoever has already filed some lawsuits or restraining orders.

That's never stopped the govt, especially the libs. Just like criminals don't worry about breaking a gun law on the way to committing another crime, libs don't worry about walking over 1/2 the Constitution when they're using the other 1/2 to wipe their ass. Funniest/Sad part is the dems there saying that L.E. & the N.G. must uphold their Constitutional duty & do what the Gov. tells them to do. Well their oath is to protect & defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC, not blindly follow unconstitutional/illegal orders from anyone, gov, pres. officer or NCO. I wonder if they'd be ok with a republican Gov ordering all abortion clinics shut down cause he says so. I'll bet they sing a different tune to someone stopping murder even though there is no Constitutionally protected right to an abortion, but there is one to keep & bear arms.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, I went shopping this morning at my local Costco. I wore my brand new balaclava (just received from Amazon yesterday), sunglasses (yes, inside the store), old tshit, basketball shorts and Crocs (no socks). I looked ridiculous. No one gave me a second glance or odd look. 90% of the shoppers there this morning were wearing masks, observing social distancing and minding their own business. It was very chill.

BTW, I wore the Crocs because I could (and did) wipe them down easily with Clorox wipes before getting back in my car.

Yeah, I wore my cowboy hat and boot with belt buckle to go with the bandana I had on.

Yeah, well, how high did you peg the swagger meter when you walked?

They were all going "Cowboy." as I walked by, or they didn't do any of that and just kept to themselves.
