Most Americans cannot afford to buy expensive weapons or take a trip to Washington ...

... at the request of the President.

Those Americans that complain the most seem to be the most privileged? They do not want for the comforts of life, as many do. They take their excess money and buy guns and ammo and travel to right-wing events.

They complain about everything they hear on talk radio or FOX News. They have grown to hate our country in their comfort.

The average working person cannot afford to buy weapons as these aggrieved citizens do.

It is ironic that those that have profited the most from our system of government are the ones most angry with our government. Many people have much stronger and valid grievances than this bunch of privileged windbags.

2. I've mused many an hour on this very thought.

Why are the people who are the most dependent on the existing hierarchy the most radicalized on tearing it down?

I've never come up with a suitable answer.

3. Unless of course you're a member of a group that is well funded by... um... bad people.

5. A lot of these people by hear like musicians buy equipment

As a friend who ran a music store once told me - two things are recession proof, liquor stores and music stores. Musicians will buy that next thing and they are all starving artists.

Anyone who knows hunters knows all the gear they have from the guns to 50 gallon drums to keep clothes scent free.

Many of these people strike me as that type. Donít underestimate them. They are very well equipped and have as good of training as anyone. The best warrior you can have does not seek fame, the glory is theirs internally. They really believe they are saving their country and will do anything necessary. I hope those guardsmen are ready and I hate it but someone better be ready to give THE order. They may just surround the walls of the Capital and cut the guard off.

7. If Mike Pence is in charge...

... I hope he has a military strike force, with helicopters, not far from the sight.

They should be prepared to act accordingly if these people find a way to strike again.

8. There is a point when it will be necessary to take them out.

If it gets to that point. The terrorists should have their bodies burned.

6. I was once with a group of people I split with because there were too many MAGAts.

Ironically, the one person who truly struggled during the Obama years was, at worst, apolitical, and more likely a quiet Obama fan.

The real MAGAts were actually quite comfortable the whole time.

9. SImple

We're asking them to follow the very laws they espouse.
We're asking they not shoot black people for traffic stops
We ask that they stop calling the Police when they see a black person in public spaces
We ask they stop locking up Latinos and stealing their children from them
We ask they stop obsessing over other's sex lives and worry about their own.
We ask they stop plotting and participating in Sedition.
We ask them to read and support the Constitution.

We're such bastards.
