Skip to comments.What is needed? Law and Order? Or Reassertion of Liberty?

America is the light of freedom to me.
What is happening now breaks my heart.
The thuggery of SOME of the "protesters" against what seems to be the brutal and unnecessary murder of George Floyd has now gone way beyond the damage of the original alleged crime in lives lost and all the other harm done.
In response Pat Buchanan has quoted Edmund Burke:
"Society cannot exist unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without.
It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters."
I believe the answer is the sort of rationality shown by "Shelly" of San Diego (see associated link.)
Thats what getting the balance right between Freedom and Law and Order requires.
Plus a heck of a lot of prayer.
While that is true as it would mobilize those of different factions, it is, I believe what the left is salivating for.
And not just an attempt. Success.
“Thats what getting the balance right between Freedom and Law and Order requires.”
The government doesn’t have a monopoly on oppression. Without law and order, freedom becomes a tenuous privilege of the strongest, nastiest few.
Law and Order, of course.
Lenny catches them;
McCoy fries them.
Whats needed is this...The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.
without freedom “law and order” can become tyranny most commonly by kings and other tyrants
the soul of America rejects all kings ........
correct me if you think I am wrong about that
after all, I am not an American
I am not the final arbiter of who and what you are ......
I am just someone who loves the best of what I believe you can be ......
The rioters are children. Spoiled children. Nothing more
Why not print this up and pass around in your precinct

The democrat controlled media dilberately miss portrayed Floyd as an innocent black who was being forceably restrained because he was black. He was arrested for passing a counterfeit $20 dollar bill .When actually he was resisting arrest and was a threat if not secured by not mentioning his size or reporting that Floyd was removed from a squad car because he was acting up under the influence of drugs and also later was discovered to have COVID 19. Which suggests his physical condition may have led to his death which the media turned into a murder change and a charge of serious abuse by police because of police efforts that were tried to get him who under control Check out

This posting has comments that reveals that both the arresting officer and Floyd knew each other and had worked together in bar security
The results of politically induced miss reporting used earlier during and after the post Zimmmerman trial. Led to black gangs attacking non blacks found innocently traversing black neighborhoods and to a score of murders or life changing injuries and later attacks of theft and vandalism on local businesses as well as attacks and murders of police officers during that period
We have made a large step toward that reality this week.
Humbly, I don’t understand the point you’re making here.
The point I was making, put another way, is that if someone coerces you at the point of a gun, it hardly matters if he is “government” or “criminal”. The threat to your life is just as palpable: obey or die. Anarchy spells death to freedom just as surely as tyranny does. And it’s not hard to imagine a dystopian society where both anarchy and tyranny coexist, or where anarchy works in service of tyranny.
