I keep reading things to the effect that if we keep being mean to MAGA, MAGA will act up and throw a violent fit. Fuck that. One of their brighter specimens, and I mean that, he once held a high security clearance, reacted to the FBI executing a legal warrant by trying to attack an FBI office with a nail gun.
Previously, on Truth Social, he had called for civil war and the execution of government agents, and when someone on there told him that his information had been forwarded to the FBI, he said "Bring it on."
Later, after his violent fit, he was shot to death in a cornfield.
I have a hard time being too concerned about those people, mostly because I have run with actual dangerous people for many years, and these fuckers just ain't it.
That's not to say that they can't be annoying and dangerous, just that you don't give in when the toddler threatens to hold its breath until it turns blue. We have a ridiculously over resourced apparatus specifically to deal with such behavior by such citizens. I know this because I have been its focus on a few occasions. I guess what I'm saying is that there's gonna be a reckoning over these folks and their actions (just ask them, they'll tell you all about it, they're not shy) and what I'm describing seems like one of the least ugly outcomes on the options menu.
Another good week. I'm not going to get my hopes too far elevated, but they are indeed alive and well for the time being.
Thank you again for the podcast. They contained the Oak fire (98%) this week and it rained a little, and the forecast has 30% chance of rain next week a couple of days, and we might just live through this summer and see some of the excellent things our president's administration has accomplished actually come to pass.
