Thank you very much for QoTD status; when I saw your heads-up in my comments last night, it was like getting ready for bed and discovering that tomorrow was Christmas morning.

Blogs give us a "wayback machine". The second post after this one is another in a series by prominent bloggers who, all of a sudden (very strange, this togetherness), are counseling the rest of us to NOT WANT an overthrow of the government which wants to overthrow the Constitution.

The delicious irony here is that your very promotion of firearms as protecting liberty is revolutionary, in the eyes of those who would be "reset" with "pushing the reset button", and you are as marked a man as I am for awakening my readers to the possibilities of that "reset".

You can join the real world, and urge those with firearms to practice with them, but also learn something of infantry small-unit tactics so as to be useful in the coming revolution, as the Man from Pinson urges (and as I join him in so urging), or you can remain in whatever sort of box that is that you've built where irony is the greatest truth, and nothing makes much sense.

It won't be a picnic, the coming revolution, but neither will be the dictatorship of the Left which will precede it.

You anticipate revolution. This places you under an obligation to avert it if possible. What have you done to work for political change by peaceful means, and thus render the bloodshed unnecessary?

I suspect very little. The "reset button" fantasy seems to be how keyboard commandos console themselves over their own inaction.
