Thoughts on Events the Weeks of September 6 and 13

Posted in Uncategorized by EloiSVM42 on September 21, 2021

Insurrection Impotence: It was predictable that the protest planned for the 18th would be a whimper. In fact, I predicted it, and the same for all such future protests in support of what’s his name, the disgraced former president.

These people are crazy, but not stupid (well kind of stupid or they wouldn’t have been out there in the first place but not that stupid). They know that if they show up at another rally and behave badly that they will be photographed, identified and busted. Plus, there’s the little matter that the security at the January 6 insurrection was overwhelmed, and the security personnel were not about to let that happen again.

So, this one boiled down to a teeny tiny, garden variety protest. Only a few people were arrested, and most were the ones stupid enough to carry weapons.

I’ll give them this for creativity: seeing that their protest was going to be a bust, they advised their fellow cockroaches to stay away because it wasn’t their protest anyway. It was a trap set by the authorities to entrap them. Yeah, right.

Perversion of democracy in America: We used to be a nation of laws; now we are a nation of lawsuits. Everybody sues everybody at the drop of a hat. It’s the default response to anything that displeases us rather than a resolution of legitimate issues.

Worst state: Case in point: The Attorney General of Texas has filed a lawsuit against a proposal made by President Biden. This is not a law. It’s not even an executive action. It’s a proposal. The AG is suing over something that hasn’t even happened yet. How can there be standing? How can there be harm? It’s a damn suggestion!

This is a frivolous lawsuit brought by Texas’ Attorney General, presumably a person with serious responsibilities and familiarity with the law. Obviously, this AG is just jacking off his base with a waste of time and money. Texas gets the cup again this week.
