I have been reading blogs this afternoon, and there is some well founded concern amongst the writers about what happens next. Listening to the Shawn Hannity show a little while ago, he went through a long list of disturbances associated with events in Florida. People are wondering if it will taper off, or if it is just getting going. I'm safe enough up here in my mountain "festung" , but I have kids in a northern city and my wife is up there visiting right now. Makes me just a little bit nervous. If things start going sour they'll have to all come home until it blows over, but that's hard to do since both my kids have jobs.
Holder is at the NAACP right now, doing some rabble rousing and Obama certainly hasn't stepped up to encourage adherence to the rule of law. They see a way to make political points on all this, and as Karl Marx liked to say, there are always useful idiots who can be exploited by an adroit politician. There are also lots of people glad of an excuse to loot and wreck general havoc.
I'm not making any predictions. I already proved wrong on the only one I did make, because I did not for a second believe that Zimmerman had a prayer with a jury comprised completely of women.
I'm not sure a lot has changed in the cities. I know most of the people whose blogs I read would be in good shape, if things went bad. They live out in the country and are well heeled in the defensive equipment department. Moreover, they have the will to take care of themselves, which is essential. As for the Sheeple, it's hard to worry about them. While we were putting ourselves in the best position we could to weather storms, they were taking cruises and buying luxury cars. They were voting for Obama, and doing their best to change the laws so the rest of us couldn't defend ourselves. I don't worry about them that much.
