A REVOLTING DEVELOPMENT
Talking about Jarhead Checkpoints, domestic troop deployment and other Lincolnesque actions, I of course let my attention wander aimlessly until it landing on another topic you could care less about and I am eager to annoy you with. Let's just say, for the sake of argument because I would never attempt to formant dissent because it is forbidden by the new and improved subject to change without notice constitution ( now spelled with a small "c" to denote less importance ), that things actually got bad enough that a revolt took place. Since I have very little faith in my fellow man, forced by DNA programming to seek out their company, acknowledging my need as a naked defenceless ape to band together with my herd but not for one minute liking it because the filthy flea picking toads will turn around and stab me in the back in a split second to advance their own welfare, I of course will always assume the worse. So here are the basic things you have to keep in mind come a revolt.
When the food runs out and hyperinflation has ruined you since COLA's were outlawed except with home interest rates, we might actually see a few formally fat brutes drag themselves from their easy chairs and take up black market arms against the government. When this happens you can be assured of two things. One, it will not be about the peoples rights, despite its original intentions or propaganda. It will be about a new set of rulers taking power. Initially, the masses will see some improvements. But don't bet the farm they will last too long. Perhaps as long as it took from the end of the original Revolutionary War to the Whiskey Rebellion. Two, you most likely won't be able to opt out of it. When you aren't "for" a side, you will be declared to be "against" them. Both sides will play this game and you will be just like a poor Vietnamese rice farmer forced to hide weapons for the VC and bombed by the Americans for doing so. Between a rock and a hard place.
Oh, of course you'll scoff at my observation. Declare me unfit for publishing. Send big cash donations and then turn me in to the IRS for not declaring them ( hint, hint ). But look at history. Not our own, as it is so clouded in propaganda and mysticism you'll be hard pressed to find much published that is impartial. But other countries. Revolutions were nasty, vulgar businesses. The helpless suffered, innocent or not. The guerrillas used fear to compel the population. Of course, many had popular support. But if you opposed them you were killed. And a lot of times not helping them was the same as opposing them.
Keep it in mind. As a neutral you will still be attacked. So either hide really well or be able to keep both sides at bay through the use of superior force. Think Appalachian moonshiners. Or desert nomads. They were left alone when the fight was not worth the reward.
Huge, big-hugs-and-sloppy-kisses for another very generous donation from Eugene in the Silver State. Thanks, bro!!
