    I love the glitter fart bomb. I want every thief to have very, very bad things happen to them. That’s right– I lack compassion for their condition.

    IDAHO

    On March 20, 2014, Idaho Gov. Butch Otter signed a bill that prohibits state or local enforcement of any federal act enacted after that date relating to personal firearms, a firearm accessory, or ammunition in violation of the Idaho state constitution’s protections of the right to keep and bear arms.

    It reads, in part:

    “Any official, agent or employee of the state of Idaho or a political subdivision thereof who knowingly and willfully orders an official, agent or employee of the state of Idaho or a political subdivision of the state to enforce any executive order, agency order, law, rule or regulation of the United States government as provided in subsection (2) of this section upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory or ammunition shall, on a first violation, be liable for a civil penalty not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000) which shall be paid into the general fund of the state.”

    Something like this is also happening in counties in blue states;

    Unalienable rights are non revocable which covers states, counties, cities and your front door or wherever you choose to stand!!

    Unless those legislators in ID and other states are willing to go kinetic on the Feds (to include the Police and Military which the Trumpkins worship), these “sanctuary” laws are meaningless virtue-signallng nonsense. The Federal gov’t has a long history proving its willingness to use force against intransigent States, and unless those States are willing to go to the mat over this- for realsies, mobilise the NG or State Guard, arm up, and prepare to repel armored and air attacks with the most lethal munitions and the dirtiest tricks at their disposal- this law and those like it mean less than nothing.

    I mean really, what does anyone think will happen the first time Depputy Sweatsox gets banged up for enforcing a Federal ban? Do they really imagine that the entire Federal appparatus, from bottom to top, will simply throw up its hands and say “Well nuts. Better luck next time I hope, Federalism after all…” and go home? No- the Feds will enforce their will. This is the same crap the Sovereign Citizen frauds/idiots get up to and it will end just as pontlessly and badly.

    “Oh but the Armed Citizens of the Militia will-”
    Horseshit. No they won’t. If they would, they would have done it already. And even if they did, to quote Mao- “The guerilla swims in the sea of the people.” When the Militia showed up for the Bundy family, they did succeed in backing the Feds down, true. They also pissed off absolutely everyone in the neighborhood whose name wasn’t Bundy. By the time they left, “our guys” were more hated than the BLM- turns out that having unknown yahoos in unknown “uniforms” setting up roadblocks and checkpoints pisses people off no matter who the yahoos are. How mch support would “our guys” have had from the local population if that situation had gone kinetic? Jack fuck, that’s how much. People would see the Militia as having instigated the conflict and frankly a lot of people in the Militia movement are itching for it. Most, no, but every group has at least one jackhole who can’t keep itself shut abut how awesome it’ll be when La Revolution and La Grand Terreur come around and “we” can finally “do something about Those People.” Those are the idiots the population will hear and remember, the ones who -wanted- a war. The People will not be friendly to someone sharing That Guy’s uniform.

    People who pray for this conflict are either sociopaths or idiots: they have either never noticed that civil conflicts are horrible meat-grinding murder machines that nearly always descend into democide and genocide and mass rape…or they don’t care, and simply want to be the ones doing the killing and raping. Sometimes there is simply no choice, of course. But this crowd has been waiting a long time for somebody to come and tell them “Jesus and Jefferson both say it’s ok the burn your neighbors alive. Ad magna gloria Dei et America, of course.” People have noticed this. They will not help someone who has brought (as they see it, factually correct or not) death and destruction to their friends and families.

    Before anyone asks- no, I don’t have a better idea, though I’ve spent many years trying to workone outp. But I know a pointless, virtue-signalling, practically meaningless -bad- idea when I see one.

    Couple of things comes to mind first and foremost being Thomas Paine;

    ” a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason….”

    Then there is this, not TP;

    “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

    One thing for sure there are those that are more disposed than others and they can make a good defense for their inaction and why suffering should be accepted and resistance is futile but they should understand what they may think is the “Plain Truth” where others may believe it is “Common Sense” to act upon what they see as the right thing to do.

    There is IMHO liberty in the breast of many, both men and women in this country, many more than many of us can imagine, of course those that carry that fire are not a majority but a majority is not needed to change the world, someone once said only about III% but who actually knows?

    “..I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death….”

    Just like in Thomas Paine’s day there were those who are indifferent or hostile to the cause of liberty but there are those today who embrace it and will act when that time comes.

    The only question that will be kept getting asked by some of us; are we there yet? Lord I just hope we get there in my lifetime but getting there in this land IMHO is only a matter of time.

    I laughed and laughed at the bait package with the glitter bomb and fart machine. But then I read the Amazon reviews for “Liquid Ass” and laughed until I cried.
