Yesterday, we went for our walk at the lake, got there about sunrise. Then we went into town and had a good breakfast at a nice restaurant. After that, we did some shopping and went to see a matinee of "War Dogs". We finished up with an early supper, at a nice place overlooking the lake, and that will be our adventure for the long weekend.
This is one of the songs in the movie. I think of it as the "Hillary is President" song.
I bought some .45 ACP and some .40 S&W Saturday. Found it at a good price, reloadable brass, and so I bought a good bit. I don't know why, really, except that it feels like doing something, at a time when I know I should be doing something constructive, and don't know exactly what.
I had a doctors office appointment last week. Met a man in the waiting room. He looked at my "Walther" ball cap and said "I see we are on opposite sides." He was a Hillaryite. Not your average moronic , unthinking slave to the hive. This guy was honest about their agenda. Articulate, intelligent, and utterly detached. Not at all like the usual idiots you run into from the Moon Bat crew.
It was like sitting in a room with Heinrich Himmler.
He explained to me that Hillary wouldn't take our guns. I quoted her recent assertions she would. He laughed, and said that was true, but it would be done slowly, a little at a time, until private gun ownership in America was utterly eradicated. He said he only meant "right away."
This guy explained to me that it had to be so, because the average person in an American city was too unintelligent and too violent to be trusted with guns. I told him , that given who lives in American cities these days, his own co-coreligionists would condemn him as racist for that belief. He said not so, that it was a widely shared point of view, but of course not one that could be promulgated among "those who lack understanding."
He told me that human beings have to sacrifice some of their freedoms and rights to make society work smoothly. I told him that I was not a hivist, that I was an individual, and that I had no intention of doing so. This fellow said it wasn't up to me.
The conversation went back and forth. He was perfectly willing to acknowledge most of the things we believe, but he said this was not about "truth", it was about engineering a society that was "functional" and "inclusive."
I don't know how to describe the man. Like a snake, really. It's hard to argue with someone who freely acknowledges that what you say may be true, but is irrelevant. If people like him wind up running the government under Hillary, as I strongly suspect they have been under Obama, then a lot of things I thought were in the realm of fiction novels may really be happening in the near future. If they aren't already.
Thought for the Day:
It's a good idea to stay out of cities.
