  •  There are times, when I'm (15+ / 0-)

    Feeling shell-shocked over some over-the-top Right Wing BS, and the boiling-over macho anger and hatred they seem to spew on a regular basis, that I wonder if someday in the not all that distant future another version of the Civil War might be in the offing.

    I hope not.  The results will be devastating for the country.

    If it does, it'll be because these macho SOB's have the same thinking of the Confederates in 1861, when they thought that any 1 Confederate soldier was worth 10 Union soldiers, and that they'd spank the north in 1 or 2 big battles and be done with it because the Yankees were a bunch of wussies without the stomach for a fight.

    Heaven forbid it ever come to that extreme again, but if it does, these idiots will find out that there are more than a few liberals that do actually know how to handle a gun.  And they'll find out that more than a few on their own side have guts made of Jell-O when the chips are down and only talk a good game behind the anonymous safety of a keyboard.

    Hate to sound so belligerent, but I do get so tired of the endless chest-thumping and barely veiled threats of violence by the right.

      that if some of the new confederacy states wanted to secede, I wouldn't vote for us to stand in their way.

      I keep my ears open on the wingnut grapevines, there's a lot of bloviating, but underneath...

      ...that I wonder if someday in the not all that distant future another version of the Civil War might be in the offing.
      It is coming, be prepared.

      •  I can hardly imagine it (0+ / 0-)

        since we're not divided by a Mason-Dixon line--we're neighbors. Will neighbors start killing neighbors? I can only see massive repression from the government as a result of such a situation.

          neighbors, or people within a reasonable radius?
          There is a lot more evil out there than you maybe can visualize (apparently). Listen to some of them, read the online stuff, just some of it that filters in here as quotes is enough. The answer is probably yes. Although it may vary with where you live.
