Hit and miss

First, the hit; 
"There are already enough firearms of every sort loose in this land to commence hot civil warfare and they will not be surrendered by their owners. The horses are out of the barn on that one, even if sales of military-style weapons are outlawed. Any effort to confiscate them from people already possessing them will only provoke more overt antagonism between the two poles of American politics — and would probably lead to exactly the sort of violence that sober observers discern on the horizon."
Yes, and those who insist that passing a law to ban firearms, regardless of action, features, caliber, et al., will actually accomplish their stated goals is a fucking moron of the highest order. You'd have about as much luck with un-inventing the wheel.

For those scratching their heads, confused about what I just said, well, that fucking morons thing...

...And the miss, and its bigger than Kunstler can possibly imagine;
"Our battered American common culture and its expression in political consensus ought to start with the foundation of the social contract: the agreement to not slaughter each other."
No, there is no contract. Nor has there EVER been one. Not here, not in Europe, not in the history of mankind, as a matter of fact, has there ever been one and Ma Nature surely doesn't give a shit about that ridiculous concept, and in fact, is outright opposed to it. The fact that there were a bunch of sober, clear-thinking men (don't get me started down this road, pansies) back in the late 18th century who recognized the very nature of mankind, and did, for the very first time, something about leveling the field, FOR EVERYONE, is about as close as we've ever come.

The gun confiscation bit is yet another step, directly away from that ideal, and toward the slaughter of each other that he mentions.

Check your history, even recent history, if you don't believe me.

A snippet into my life

Some people think the life of the architect to be quite glamorous, filled with parties in the evening, nice clothing, hobnobbing with the power-elite, fancy, imported cars, and of course, slick buildings out of glossy magazines.

I can personally attest to you, dear reader, this rock-star, cosmopolitan figure is NOTHING of the day-to-day grind that is the real world for most of us.

I am currently performing code research on a certain building I am "designing," (a laughable term, I think) which will be in south Florida. As part of this research, I am ascertaining what logical lengths we will need to go to meet the energy conservation requirements as set forth in the model building code, which happens to be the Florida Building Code, 2017.

It references another Florida standard, the Florida Energy Conservation Code, where I ran across this bit, regarding equipment buildings, exempting them from compliance with certain insulation standards;
"4.Have an average wall and roof U-factor less than 0.200 in Climate Zones 1 through 5 and less than 0.120 in Climate Zones 6 through 8."
So, you may ask, what's the issue?

Florida, as you may realize, is a rather warm and humid climate, year-round, largely due to its maritime proximity, being a peninsula at low latitude in a warm, shallow ocean.

If one looks at the various climate zones in Florida, you'd notice that the word various means precisely TWO. That'd be zones 1 and 2. For the whole state.

Why is it, may I ask, that the FLORIDA ENERGY CODE even mentions, MENTIONS, the other SIX, which covers the rest of CONUS?!?

The shit I have to deal with.

What now, Donkeys?

I'm sitting over here, laughing at your freaks, out loud.

Two years of your shitshow, flinging feces like a troop of monkeys, wasting millions of dollars in the process and there was NOTHING at the end of it all.

By all means, keep up the pressure...on what I'm not certain. You're picking another fight you can't win.

Note the full court press being applied

The Donkeycrats, with the help of their lackeys in the MSM, are in a full court press on gun control.

First, New Zealand, then a Parkland survivor, then another.

They're not letting a crisis go to waste; standard playbook stuff. Now matters are worse.

Time's short.

Another point...

Watch what happens in New Zealand in the next couple of months after the mosque attacks.

I'm sure it will be illuminating.

Note also that the outcome, that is, the "ban," is precisely what the shooter had described as one of his motives.

Watch now, as the murders with firearms goes through the roof in NZ.

Mark this point on the datum

Then see where we are a year later.

Really, I think it's happening, just as some have been predicting all along.

All compasses pointing north indeed

A RTWT post from ten day ago, and a bit that all should read and consider;
"That's why they now openly proclaim the outright plan to strip the clear acknowledgements of the First and Second Amendments, and muse before God and everybody how joyful and pleasant it would be to come and round you up, and kill you."
Yes, joyful and pleasant is exactly how the Commies put it, right now.

And this as well;
"You have half a Congress full of would-be führers, gruppenführers, and gauleiters, openly telling you what they want, and will do given the slightest chance, and yet nobody's fired so much as a single shot. And likely, nobody will. They wait until the columns march into whatever suffices for Poland these days before they'll recognize they let things go too far, and only pay attention too late. Pray the response is not too little."
This is all being played out, right now, if you'd care to watch it, in Venezuela.

Lawyers doing lawyerly things

What else can one expect from such criminals?

They know how to play the system, and the additional intimidation by way of the name association is just a bonus...a brand of sorts.

Fatalism of stupidity

Read the whole thing.

A snippet I particularly liked; 
"The New York Times put that idea forward when it ran an op-ed asking, “Would human extinction be a tragedy?"
"It may well be, then, that the extinction of humanity would make the world better off," it pondered.
More children mean more plane trips, more cows and more carbon emissions. Like the cows and the planes, the children must go for the environment to be saved to go on existing in splendid isolation.
If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? If there isn’t a single human being left on the planet, does it matter how pristine the woods, lakes and skies are?"
The very IDEA that there wouldn't BE any people around to even enjoy, much less...EXPLOIT Mother Gaia gives the Donkeycrat-Prog-Eco-Phreak-Totalitarians a warm fuzzy.
Talk about sick.
Oh, and hug your kids. Every day.
