 I enjoyed the book once I figured out that it was actually a cluster of books. I like the title now for the simple reason that I think it may well be the next target of the know-nothings. They have successfully made the great mass of people and all media people terrified of simple weather and weather related phenomena. This was OK back when people were recommended to have a healthy concern for tornadoes and hurricanes and killing cold in white-out conditions and nuclear winters. However it is pretty obvious that the shills who use science to terrify the ignorant haven't yet breached the sleep barrier. No doubt they'll pick up on it soon and try to convince people that they sleep too much or some other silly thing that the ignorant will trip over themselves believing since they believe everything they hear.

And finally, we live now and forever in a Banana Republic. I didn't really think even Trump Derangement Syndrome would carry away an entire grand jury. I guess I know less about New Yorkers who live in Manhattan then I thought. When exactly did they stop living in our Republic?

I like that Batman-Joker meme of the Joker saying "things haven't gotten worse, just more obvious."

And the Frank Zappa quote:

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

Bread and circuses work until you run out of other peoples bread. The EBT entitled crowd will respond "Poorly" when no matter how much "Emergency Aid" CONgress (spelling intentional) throws into it they cannot buy enough food.

The Fed can print money but not single loaf of bread to buy with it.

The 4 horsemen are warming up their acts. Protect your family.

Killhouse rules are in effect.

If the Democrats pull this off, it could mean the end of the United States. Their winning would give them the power and precedent to do as they like, against anyone whom they disagree with.

There are Democrats like " The Squad ", and Pelosi and Schumer, that would be most unlikely to object to the estabishment of Camps, to house their political enemies. Other Camps could follow those.

I hate that the state is now entirely weaponized against those who defend a family. As we used to say in the old Navy, pick your state, pick your fate. Well, maybe a different word. That idiot Bragg and his clutch of demons are prosecuting a murder case in NYC against yet another citizen that defended himself and wrestled the gun from the man who shot him and shot the criminal. I think perhaps Shakespeare had it right. Who knows what happens when the lights go out? And who is making sure the lights go out? Yeah, OK.

I think at some point it will turn into a julius caesar moment.

did i say that? I'm sure I meant some sort of orange julius, officer. I mean woe betide the man that thinks that the deep state has to die a most grisly and horrible death.
