Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July everyone. This has nothing to do with Linux today, rather the condition of the United States. While traditionally this is the day we celebrate our declaration of freedom for the oppressive rule of a foreign monarch, I thought I would post a video as to how well the most basic tenet of how we accomplished this task is holding up.

If a picture says 1000 words, then this is nearly the library of congress. Lesson learned? If authorities ever come up to you without a warrant and ask if you have weapons ... well I wont say to say no, but use your best discretion. If you want to be able to continue your constitutionally guaranteed right of self defense I'm sure you can pick a proper response.

Sadly, as soon as the NRA is mentioned, a substantial number of people just stop listening.

These sames sorts of things happened with the recent floods, but again it's been ignored or downplayed by the "mainstream media" because they don't like guns.

Americans are being accustomed to the idea that an "emergency" means that all civil rights are suspended, especially anything that allows people to fight back. It's being done in full view of everyone, which would never have worked 20 years ago, but is working like a charm now.

Openly declaring martial law is next. Watch for it in the next disaster.
