Lol! I guess I'm not the only one sick of all the breathless "sky is falling" posts about somebodies uncles best friends former roommate hearing that Obama plans to issue an Executive Order next Tuesday 1:13PM and then using Madame Cleo and the Psychic friends networks, he's going to find and send the military to pick up every gun in the country before 2:30pm.
Yes. You’re not the only one. Here are a few tidbits that we know so far.
The gun control efforts have been pushed by a few constituents, who believe that they’ll somehow hold onto their wealth in our eventually radically shrunken economy (default process, etc.). Maybe there are fears in a few influential constituents, that some sort of armed middle class riots will happen in the near future (possible bond collapse, repudiations of debt, accompanied by more huge layoffs of bureaucrats, shutdowns of government-connected business, and so on). The same kinds of constituents, BTW, also have family members who focus on family issues: issues of other people’s families (feminism, homosexual issues, pathological expectations about how others should raise kids, etc.). ...and environmentalism, strange regards toward animals (animal “rights”) and more.
The recent massacres were carried out by sons of families with big cash flow (upper middle class? whatever) under very strange circumstances. The case of the first one is sealed up tight. Not saying that there is a conspiracy of some kind behind the mass murders, but only that some of the circumstances seem strange.
Meanwhile, there’s an underlying fear in politics, that big labor will return. Return to what? The productive folks are in Asia, south of our border and other places (manufacturing). Well, yes, Obama was elected and reelected to boot the “progressive” Hillary regime in upscale constituents.
IMO, the answer would be to dump many regulations in all levels of government—regulations against small manufacturing shops, owner-builder projects and similar undertakings. But the current crop of political regulators doesn’t want to let it go. We’re morally bankrupt. ...dump anti-family intrusions by social regulators, too.
But here we go, to more poverty. I doubt that we’ll see any vainglorious insurrection, but one thing’s for sure. Where we’re heading so far, technically inclined, hard working people will do relatively well.
Sorry for the hastily written mess, but there it is. Maybe someone can add useful info or put some of the puzzle together.
