Such a sweet loving smile. She just loves everyone and cares for them. So kind. I bet she makes soup for the homeless. She did b/4 they weren’t allowed because of fat and salt content. I don’t think those wonderful cupcakes would pass Mooshell’s inspection. No No not allowed along with the big gulp soda containers. She’s also using a plastic server and wooden sticks. At least she still uses a manual typewriter.

It occurs to me, oh, I don’t know why, that our civilization has eliminated survival challenges from the environment such that anti-survival behaviors are not bred out of the herd. The dweebs survive in comfort and security. And now the dweebs have decided that their anti-survival behaviors should become mandatory for the entire herd.
@leelu, Yesterday, my wife and I attended the nearest Day of Resistance rally, at a busy intersection along highway 20 down near Anacortes, WA. There were about 55 people present when we arrived. The organizers said there were about 75 earlier in the day. I wish it had been 7500, but I’m afraid we’re outnumbered by the uninformed voter.
There were a lot of honks and thumbs up from passing motorists, which was reassuring. There were also a few extended middle fingers. We smiled and waved back at them with a thumbs up (giving the impression we mistook their middle finger for a thumbs up, thus pissing them off). There were no confrontations as far as I know.
Since WA is an open carry state, some people brought their “assault” rifles, fitted with high capacity magazines, displaying them prominently on shoulder slings or in-hand. I don’t know what crosses the line into “brandishing”, but there was a lot of waving about. Personally, I thought that might be too provocative, simply reinforcing the stereotype image that the illiberal control freaks have of us.
I didn’t feel in any danger from those guys, but I was a little concerned that one of the effete, nervous Nellies who has never seen, touched, let alone operated a real gun, might call the cops or something, creating a scene.
I would have preferred a rally to defend all of our natural rights, and not only the right to self-preservation. This isn’t just about the right to keep and bear arms (which has already been seriously infringed, by the way — what are we going to do about that?) The best sign I saw said, “The Second Amendment Protects The First Amendment”.
Even if the illiberal control freaks manage to decimate the entire Bill of Rights, we’d still have all of the rights we were born with. To exercise them would merely put us at odds with a tyrannical regime. Sadly, we’d be in good company.
