You Say You Want a Revolution… Well, You Know….

I’m still trying to figure out how in the hell the idea that we have an “oppressive government” keeps rising in the disgruntled, but NOT disenfranchised, idjits who take it upon themselves to do something stupid…. and then wonder why they’re in jail. (Because they’re STOOPID, that’s why.)

This is hardly the Colonial Period, with the British Crown abusing the good nature of the locals so much with egregious taxes on everything, including printed material like newspapers, that the massacre at the Boston Commons took place in 1770. George III was not a good manager, although some of that might be blamed on his disease.

The history of that is here:

That took place in 1770, when a foreign government, knowing that it was losing its hold on the American colonies, sent troops in to enforce British laws and add more, including the Tax Stamp Act. And those of us who were taught real history in grade school and high school know how things evolved between 1770 and 1776.

So, two hundred years later, in the 1970s, what was the complaint really about?

Perhaps some of  you have forgotten the Days of Rage in 1969 and the Weathermen, who instigated that crap?  And later on, there was that bunch of LaRouchies who were “gonna roll their tanks down Michigan Avenue” (I think it was supposed to be in Chicago), or some such thing.  So we had both the extreme Left (Weathermen) and extreme Right (LaRouche) sides of the political fence on display there, mostly over imagined wrongs. In the 18th century, they’d have been exported by the British Crown to Australia and left there on their own.

Or maybe some of you simply weren’t around for the draft protests, the Weathermen blowing up an apartment building in Greenwich Village, and the protests at the Democrat Party convention in 1968 in Chicago.

Since I lived at Quarters K at the Naval Annex at the time the draft protests were going on, it was interesting to watch, from a safe distance, the attempted invasion of the Pentagon by a couple of draft dodgers looking for the Selective Services files, and the subsequent event of the MPs throwing them out on their butts.

But every society has, and will always have, disgruntled do-nothings and ne’er-do-wells like that bunch of meatheads last week, who take it upon themselves to try to destroy a system that really does work, despite its flaws. They talk themselves into being idiots and doing idiotic things, and wonder why they got busted. They exist in every society at every level, and some of them are quite good at stirring the pot, while others are too inept to do anything besides talk themselves into doing something abundantly STOOPID, which those Michigan boneheads did.

They may be, as USMC Steve has observed elsewhere, deadly serious, but none of the rest of us want anything to do with them.

There is no oppressive government, except what exists in the tiny minds of these twits, on both sides of the political fence. The only reason we see so much of the left-wingers is that they’re good at recruiting a few disgruntled dopes to join them. They are attractive to the left-leaning media who don’t realize the sheer stupidity they are watching unfold, and encouraging it to keep going. Nor do they realize the consequences of supporting something like that.  But now, as you may see on YouTube, people are starting to walk away from them and their rhetoric and violence.

Watch this young lady’s video all the way to the end. She has switched from ‘liberal” to “conservative”, and her reasons are given in the video, e.g., some things she’d thought were “correct” (meaning accurate) turned out to not be correct/accurate at all.  She is not alone; there are many others like her quietly slipping away from the so-called liberal side of politics, because it no long means what it should mean.

If laws on the books become overbearing and unreasonable, then We the People have the right to question them and get them repealed. The entire career of legislators revolves around making more and more laws until the shelves full of those law books groan as they near the collapse state. Some of it is necessary, and some of it is ridiculous and should be fuel for a dumpster fire. It is up to us to make sure we get our money’s worth out of our Elected (but certainly not holy) Reps. Period.

How do you get rid of them?  Simple. Vote their silly butts out of office.

Did I tell you I also cook?

Major Moonbat swooping in with his cult propaganda in 3, 2, 1,…


Only he sees the Whole Picture and he recommends, for now, that we lay prostrate at his feet for he is the One True Arbiter of; Truth, Logic, Reason and Equity.
Obey him or get re-educated, you f**king swine!

Shhhh…DAMN IT! Don’t call one who shall not be named a 3rd time for fear that “it” will show up here. “It” is still screeching over on the transition of power thread.

And Roh-Dog….DAMN IT, do NOT point that spapos toward Nebraska, I got people there. And it’s a nice state. Keep “it” in Commiefornia along with the other fruits and nuts.

I agree Mi’Lady that we have had screeching howler monkeys around for years. IMO this time tho, they have some serious financial and propaganda backing. And who knows how many sleeper cells of real terrorist hiding out. With a warehouse full of Fast and Furious weapons laying around. I’m not very concerned about the soi boi latte slurping punks. I am a little concerned about the shadow ones using them as a smoke screen.

Be Aware…Eternal Vigilance.


You have documented proof that many of the ’60s and early ’70s assholes were influenced and bankrolled by the KGB. Only difference now is that between a generation of propagandizing our youth and some serious non-governmental financial sources (cough cough Soros Blomberg cough cough) the threat is if anything more serious. Many of those soyboy looking folks are combat vets, and let’s be honest… many of the gang-affiliated POC protesters coming from the barrios and ‘ghettoes’ have killed more people and have fewer scruples than most here. Take the enemy seriously.


Sorry, FA. The inclusion of Nebraska was a pragmatic one only, Kansas would be a good choice too. Main consideration is the straight lines of their boarders for fencelinin’ and remoteness.
And before I’m accused of being a monster by our local political officer, it’s a g-d joke.
Only the commies wanna lock up people with whom they disagree.

5th/77th FA

We good Bruh, I had ya. I knew you wouldn’t pollute the popcorn state, and the Homes of Heavy Western Grain Fed Beef Beast. And, no I’m not into locking up people that I disagree with. I also don’t have a problem with giving sissy punk asinine pieces of sh^t a HANO…no matter what their political, ethnic, social, religious, or economic status is.

We could give the Marxist/Socialist wanna be Commies what they want. A Socialist Utopia. I hear that Venezuela is nice this time of year, or Cuba, or any number of places in Africa.


My question is, how long are those labeled as the silent majority gonna let this go on? People are losing their lively hood and some, their homes and cars. These spoiled children are committing felonies and are being released (when caught) by activist DA’s and judges. So they can still vote.

This is what I said before. The elected officials in the blue states refuse to do their jobs. The popo in many of those places refuse to do their jobs. The people who live in those places have no recourse whatever. Meanwhile you have anarchy, and no one is accountable. And the poor people who are getting fucked over have no recourse. This is what gives rise to groups like the Michigan dweebs. Consult your Declaration of Independence. When government no longer does its job it is the duty and the responsibility of the people to rise up and take the government back and set it right. That is the case in varying degrees in each of the blue states at present. Now, if the people getting screwed keep voting for that sort of shitbag, well, fuck ’em with a sharp stick then.


The biggest problem with voting them in and out of power is that once the lefties are voted in, it’s nye unto impossible to ever vote them out again – as we see in Congress. Sure, we the peeples certainly are able to accept socialism as the new way of life. There just is no changing your mind once done. It’s over without outside intervention.

Take down the US and there is no country with the ability to fight for the oppressed around the world. Probably why we have been the target for over 100 years now. They keep chipping away at our freedoms – they are nothing if not patient.


Wise words regarding Congress from former House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) back in 2013, “We should not be judged on how many new laws we create. We ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal.”


Great Song.
(This YouTube video is The Beatles’ hybrid music video version.)
Even better, I looked at the lyrics again, today.
It’s NOT the song a lot of protesters,
then or now, think it was, or is.

Revolution – The Beatles

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it’s evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don’t you know that you can count me out

Don’t you know it’s gonna be
All right, all right, all right

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We’d all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We’re doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell is brother you have to wait

Don’t you know it’s gonna be
All right, all right, all right

You say you’ll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it’s the institution
Well, you know
You better free you mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow

Don’t you know it’s gonna be
All right, all right, all right
All right, all right, all right

I guess I never really listened to ALL the lyrics. I thought he was just being ironic, but he was in fact being realistic!
I always classified John as a liberal and Paul as a conservative until he married Lynda and went looney (have you heard his lyrics lately?) Now I will have to re-evaluate.


Taxman – “one for you nineteen for me”

He wasn’t kidding.


“Declare the pennies on your eyes”

UK Death Tax
+ Brit morgue practice of
holding dead eyes closed with pennies.


Yup. As bad as our tax system was, the Bits have it much worse.

I had written them off, but Brexit shows there may yet be enough for them to recover. Maybe.

THE UNITED STATES of AMERICA, a nation so terrific that even those who say that they hate it refuse to leave!


We do imprison more of our population, in both per capita and total numbers, than any other country in the world.

And our law enforcement kills more of our citizens than any other industrial nation.

And public sentiment has had a statistically negligible impact on legislation for the last three decades.

We also do not rank in the top ten in any measure of political or social freedom. Not even in the top 30 with respect to freedom of speech.

So, it is not out of the question to start wondering if our society is oppressive.


Somebody kicked over the stone and the slime rolled out.
Maybe the prison population is high because we have more than our share of assholes breaking laws? Did you consider that possibility?
I guess you didn’t bother paying attention during your extensive career in law enforcement.

What about the percentage of population imprisoned in such liberal utopias as the USSR under Stalin or Communist China under Mao, Major Moonbat?
