I finished Wasteland 3, so I am entertaining myself watching a little Netflix. Decided to watch the space shuttle Challenger documentary, and I remembered Reagan’s speech that Nooners wrote for him, with the memorable lines of slipping the bounds of earth (which Peggy lifted from a WW1 or WW2 aviator’s poem, I can’t remember which), and how I still remember him giving that speech and how it really was the perfect speech and great for the nation. Can you imagine Hair Fuhrer even attempting to do something like that to heal the nation? Me either.
For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been going back and forth on whether I should buy a rifle and a shotgun. I hate guns. I just have no use for them, I don’t like hunting, I don’t want to ever have to kill anything, I think people act more belligerent when they carry them, and I just wish they didn’t even exist. I think other than going shooting at the range with Tammy’s husband close to 20 years ago, I have not even touched one since I got out of the army.
But yet, here we are. I think Trump and his supporters are so delusional and so caught up in the cult, that when he loses, shit is going to go down. So I’m wondering- would it be irresponsible to not own a rifle at this point?
Knowing me, I’m 99% sure that I will end up not buying one. But what does it say when someone like me, who despises guns, who doesn’t panic about shit but prepares, thinks shit is so out of control it might be necessary?
