And Wisconsin Deep Blue Gov. Tony Evers has told President Trump he's not welcome in Wisconsin. Trump is scheduled to visit Kenosha this Tuesday, and Evers wrote him to ask him to stay away. Evidently Evers feels the protests are cathartic, and that they are helping Kenosha "overcome division and move forward." Evers' letter to Trump said, "I am concerned your presence will only hinder our healing."

Yeah. Right. All the Dem-run cities allowing violent assaults and rioting to take place unchecked in their streets are doing a gosh-darned super-swell job of moving forward and healing.
My gosh. The thoughts leftists come up with just leaves me shaking my head in astonishment. It is like they live in some alternative universe. There is just no way they really believe some of the truly ignorant things they say. Healing??? What healing? Healing implies some sort of butt hurt has been put upon the poor dejected looters and rioters. There is no healing to be had. What they need is to all be put in jail. They are not going to stop until forced to do so. No amount of compromise is going to satisfy their taste for blood.
One of my favorite quotations from William F. Buckley, Jr., from the show Firing Line that ran until 1999:
I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.
Well, like I said, one of my favorites. Buckley also came up with these gems:
The best defense against usurpatory government is an assertive citizenry.
There is an inverse relationship between reliance on the state and self-reliance.
A Conservative is a fellow who is standing athwart history yelling 'Stop!'
One must bear in mind that the expansion of federal activity is a form of eating for politicians.
Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.
Liberals, it has been said, are generous with other peoples' money, except when it comes to questions of national survival when they prefer to be generous with other people's freedom and security.
Buckley died in 2008. But there was once an era when the mainstream media didn't consider "conservative" and "intellectual" to be mutually exclusive terms.

Sounds like it comes straight out of the movie "The Purge".
Oh. Snap. I never thought of that. The Purge's "New Founding Fathers" were purposely represented as extreme-right white nutjobs...Hollywood would never have bought the script, otherwise. But flip the "New Founding Fathers" to be radical leftists and antifa Marxists, and you just painted a pretty chilling analogy of the seemingly incessant riots and violence. Next step: "To protect the cities we all live in while still giving the oppressed, the demeaned, and the overlooked the opportunity to release their just and righteous anger, for 24 hours each year..." Once they've confiscated the guns from lawful citizens, they could even use the supply as a lending library for the poor and downtrodden who can't afford their own firearms but want to exercise their right to Purge.

Er, anybody want to discuss a bunch of us chipping in to buy a couple thousand acres with a defensible perimeter, good underground water supply, and arable land?

You had me at "confiscated guns" I'll put money on the table that says that is not going to happen. They could pick us off one at a time but any mass effort is not going to end well, if they can even get anyone to attempt to carry it out. Given that the same people are the ones who are anti-police, I cannot imagine the wide-spread support for the confiscation concept among the police forces who serve the places where most of the guns actually are.

As far as the arable land, i'm in.

There was some family discussion Sunday about maybe needing to find a place. I suggested Montana or Idaho (sorry, if you are forced out of Texas where do you go) ( sorry, heaven, I forgot )

Well anyway a member of the family piped up, not Montana or Idaho that’s where all those crazy far right wing militias are.

It’s pretty easy to spot people who listen to MSM.

No. But we tried to pry out of her, specifics. Was it the man who baracaded him self on his ranch and the FBI came and killed his wife while she was holding a baby? Was it the man who sawed off a shot gun and before it was over 100 people had died? Or was it some ranchers who wanted to burn brush on federal land they were leasing? No. No. And No. I just know there were militias.

Speaking of militias. They want them banned in Wisconsin.

Is this how we get guns confiscated? No militias, no guns?

Okay. I don't want to derail this topic any more than I already have, so I'll stop after this. Dunno why, but some time ago I started following the real estate company Hall and Hall's YouTube channel. Just for those daydream moments of, "I wonder what I'd do if I suddenly had 100 million dollars extra to spend?"

But their videos are always pretty good, and most of the properties are pretty spectacular. As an example, here's a property that sold in 2017 to an individual buyer, for his personal use, for $28 million. Some of the listings are larger than this 15,000 acre ranch, but Kessler Canyon in Colorado was move-in ready for a shooter. Check the two walk-in gun vaults and the eight-station shooting range; also has a dog kennel and a complete game cleaning and prep facility.

Large turnout in LA (so far peaceful) for a memorial to man killed by a police officer when he was thrown off of a building during a fight, when he resisted arrest.

Footage available shows police officer shouting racist language afterwards.

Saw this on Twitter this morning:
• Give me Liberty or I'll get up and get it myself.
• I don't carry because of the odds, I carry because of the stakes.
• My dream is to have lived my life so well that future generations of leftists will demand my name be removed from buildings.
• Independent Minarchist.
