And speaking of POTUS trolling the hell out of the right this week, apparently people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because morons too stupid to know they are morons stand ready to announce to the world what their secret villainous master strokes are to pretty much everyone (and people in law enforcement) who then say “Hey, thanks for the tip.

Were an angry group of disenfranchised citizens to target in a strategic manner the substations leading to a city or geographic area—say, Albany, for example—they could put the area in the dark for as long as it took to bring the substations back online. Were they committed enough, and spread their attacks out over a wide enough area, perhaps mixing in a few tens of dozens of the residential transformers found every few hundred yards along city streets, they could overwhelm the utility companies ability to repair the damage being caused or law enforcement’s ability to stop them…
How many days with partial power or no power, how many nights in the dark, would it take before the local economy collapsed in the targeted area? Insurgents could cripple a city, region, or state, without ever firing a bullet at another human being.

It could be a cold, dark winter.
It was at this point the wingers stumbled onto The Other, Other Operation…
