"A bigger problem that affects all of us except cops, politicians and the wealthy and that is the liberty-crushing half-assed police state we're all
Very true and part of that truth is that John Q. Public most resembles the frog in the pot of water on the stove. They crank up the heat
incrementally so J.Q. doesn't realize he's being boiled to death until its too late and he's too weak to jump out the pot.
At some point however, this may well begin to affect the monied, wealthy elites and that's when they can't convince J.Q. to live and work in the
wretched pits of despair that so many of these cities have become. Think about it. A State government makes self-defense with firearm so difficult
J.Q. has no choice except to rely on the cops for protection...except, the cops are never around when needed, but are busy harassing J.Q. with
non-refusal sobriety check points. So J.Q. finds himself caught in a repetitive cross fire at the convenience store or gas station or Walmart
parking lot between the crooks who never gave up their firearms and the mall cop. So, for example, Chicago...what working stiff trying to raise a
family is going to work in Chicago?
So what happens then? Well, the government moves the criminals out to the suburbs through its Section 8 HUD housing policies and the crime goes
through the roof and J.Q. has to move......again, only this time, he takes a big loss on the sale of his house which has been devalued because the
neighborhood has gone to crap.
This scene is being repeated all across the country. Look for example, at what's happening to the typical 4th of July festivities. Used to be held
at the County fairgrounds. Now...they can't get anyone to go to the county fairgrounds because of last years beat down flash mob scene. But worse,
the cops have adopted a No Refusal Sobriety Checkpoint system for those leaving the county fairgrounds. So you go to see the fireworks, (which you
can't shoot off yourself because they've criminalized ownership or use of fireworks at your home), you have a couple of beers, you leave before the
flash mob shows up and then you get nailed for DWI.
So what's the deal for 4th of July now? Either people stay home or they get on a Carnival Cruise ship or they fly to Las Vegas where they can party
and stumble drunk to a hotel room. Bottom line? This trend is killing local small businesses and fewer and fewer people are willing to show up for
work anymore at the workplace in a huge metroplex pit of despair and crime and heavy handed law enforcement. And this goes a long way to explaining
the crappy housing market. (this and tax policies, but that's a story for a different day).
