Anarchy in the United States?

Not there yet, but LC&IB Confederate Yankee notes that people are getting nervous and buying guns like they’re going out of style.

We’re going to have to severely cut social programs. As much as liberals are burying their heads in the sand (or other warm, dark places) to avoid dealing with that fact, we simply have to cut spending, and that is going to mean significant entitlement reform. Combine that with an entitlement mindset and a consumer culture with eroding moral guidance, and you have the recipe for the kind of violence you saw in the United Kingdom, and the very distinct probability that it will happen here to some extent.

Exactly, as I mentioned yesterday. What can’t go on, won’t, and when the gravy train stops we’re in for a rough ride. However, entitlement reform now, even though it will most certainly lead to rioting by the Usual Suspects, is nothing compared to the Mad Max future that awaits us if Washington DC continues to follow the “victorious” McCockless/Boner playbook of “kicking the can down the road” until we run out of road.

Reality will catch up with us sooner or later.

The big question no one can answer is that we don’t know how widespread or deep the rioting and violence with occur.

Will it be mindless, but weapon-free looting and racial attacks like we’ve seen in recent weeks that just sent a few people to the hospital, or are we going to see cities burn again?

Will the violence be confined to small isolated incidents quickly stomped out by effective policing, or will President Empty Suit dither as America burns?

Depends on which part of the country the rioting occurs in.

Down here, stomping them out won’t have anything to do with policing as the disturbance will be over before they have a chance to arrive. All that will be left will be for the meat wagons to clean up. Elsewhere, it may be different.

But the blame for all of it will be Washington DC’s alone, so maybe that’s where we ought to start cleaning up?

We have a feeling that the cleanup, and that part is inevitable, will be much more civilized if we do it at the ballot box in November of next year than if we wait until our cities are burning.

Because, in the latter case, there’ll be an awful lot of heavily armed, justifiably angry citizens looking for some well-deserved payback.

Discuss.

Thatisall.

Mrs. O and I were discussing the “flash mob” beatings last night. I said it’s just a matter of time until they pick on the wrong “victim” and the cops have to come haul away a few bodies. Sooner or later they’re going to choose someone with a CCW, or just someone carrying without a permit, and then… will it… Read more »

I was reading another forum and this exact question came up. Urban wastrels Youths come out of the cities looking for food and other things, It sort of went like this.

Nothing spells trouble like taking away “entitlements” from people who are convinced they are “disenfranchised” (or some other psychobabble) and therefore magically “deserving” of a place at the trough. Guess I need to get my CCL after all.

You know what, Grammar Czar…..you ask what he would do should his loved ones be threatened………..is defending them counter to Gods will too? Sounds like a cowards paradise to me, the denial strong in this one…….I can tell yout this. I wouldn’t lift a finger, trigger or othrerwise, to help him…………

Caveman,

Actually, I DID ask him…what if it was his wife or his sisters (he has two) being attacked…he hemmed and hawed…and then said…well, I guess I would defend them, but I would feel TERRIBLE about it, knowing that I was going against what the Bible teaches.

The irony is just too rich.

If you want to understand the wave of black “flash mob” violence against whites that is sweeping the country, listen to the music they listen to, glorifying gangs, drugs and filled with misogyny and hatred of whites, urging the killing of cops, treating women like trash.

I get a kick out of libs trying to cherry pick the Bible. It would seem to me that self-preservation is the most powerful of our God given instincts. Try telling a mother, of any species, that she should not defend her young. Good luck….for she will kill to do so or die trying. A man will instinctively move to… Read more »

“If the US Government was a family, they would be making $58,000 a year, they spend $75,000 a year, & are $327,000 in credit card debt.

These are the actual proportions of the federal budget & debt, reduced to a level that we can understand.”… Read more »

I live in central Iowa, just south of Des Moines. I’d say that there are really only a handful of cities in all of Iowa that are at risk for serious rioting, although anything is possible with the number of illegals we have in this state. Iowa City is a wild card since it’s got a large number of Arabs… Read more »

Y’all that have SKS type weapons and are worried about the reload time, let me enlighten you about something I learned during my “Stans” tours. A couple of well delivered rounds from a distance that the “yutes” aren’t looking for will discourage many “flash mobs” from continuing operations. And since I replaced the standard load with a mag and have… Read more »
