Trump is like a set of studded tires. They suck most of the time, but then comes a blizzard – and you are grateful.
Just so now.
If he were not jefe and instead we had her instead, it is probable that – before this day is out, an emergency executive order would emanate from Washington, outlawing the possession of “weapons of war” (as she has styled them) by other-than-government-workers and, of course, the people such as this Stephen Paddock character. The laws – and strict punishments – that attend murder didn’t much persuade him. It is doubtful new laws would have much if any power to restrain the next Paddock.
Most people understand this.
So does she, incidentally. It is why she has a cordon of heavily armed protectors with her whenever she goes out and around her the rest of the time, too.
Those guns do not “kill,” apparently.
It makes all kinds of sense.
But 59 people killed! Only “weapons of war” could facilitate such carnage! Well, no. Shooting people is actually a very inefficient way to kill lots of people. Ask Heinrich Himmler, the Reichsfuhrer of the German SS. It became a chore to do away with people one bullet at a time. Hence the gas.
Until this Vegas thing, the most deadly mass killing at an American school was not done with guns but with bombs. In Bath Township, Michigan in 1927. Andrew Kehoe planted several bombs, some of which went off (but not all). He succeeded in killing 38 kids and wounding about 60 others. It is interesting that fewer people have ever heard of this massacre than remember a third tall building collapsed on 911. Everyone knows “Columbine,” meanwhile.
Undoubtedly, it is because bombs don’t fit the agenda, notwithstanding their superior effectiveness at killing large numbers of people. Hence, “Bath” it is not a trigger word brayed unctuously by the media donkeys and, of course, her.
There is also a racial fritz.
She would have had a field day with this Paddock guy, a “deplorable” in every way, it appears. Old and white. Likely disgruntled. No official news yet, but he probably will turn out to not like “people of color” (white people being, of course, translucent).
Meanwhile, the other shooting, which happened just a couple of days ago in TN, barely got any coverage on the day it happened and has since evaporated like mist on Mars. Emmanuel Sampson – a guy of black color – shot up a church full of white people. It is likely he did not like them – probably on account of their translucence. When the shooter-victim roles are reversed, we all know what the results are. Endless unctuous braying about “hate.” Sampson hated just as much but the unction is nonexistent. It does not fit the agenda.
Back to her.
Imagine she is jefe today. You are waking up, have just turned on the news. A “deplorable” has shot up a concert, the highest body count to date.
Better start clinging.
This event would provide a pretext similar to that of 911 – for which a “Patriot Act” just happened to be handy. Already written, in fact. It wasn’t read but it sure got passed – by overwhelming vote because if you’re not with us, you’re against us. The flag. Etc.
It is certain that a similar document is also written – and ready. Waiting for her signature. Or the signature of someone like her, just waiting. Elizabeth Warren, for instance.
Lucky for us – and for all his numerous faults – the national cockatiel (as my amigo Fred Reed styles him) will not be signing it. Because he does not fit the agenda – on this score, at least.
And for that, we should all be extremely, extraordinarily grateful on this second day of October, 2017.
