Today in history

    “so if the state robs and steals from you, is it ok to liberate the same value of the theft from any government property available for the taking.”

    If you dress yourself up such that the federal gunslinger types mistake you as one of their own, sign out an M240 LMG or MP-5 SMG from their arms room, then walk it out to your car and disappear it into your rainy decade stash, more power to you.

    Helping the “anti-fascist” Antithugs burn down buildings? Not so much — you’re on your own there, as far as I’m concerned.

    For the record, Heinlein wasn’t fond of labels. He preferred to deal with people as individuals, and to be addressed as an individual, if I recall correctly.

    I don’t worry too much about what to call myself, or what others call me.

    I’ve been called a “Nazi,” a “Communist,” a “faggot,” and a “homophobe” at various points in my life.

    I do reserve the right to have fun with such labels, sneers, slander, and libel.

    My prediction?

    Coming to Central Ave between 10th St and Louisiana, at least. Also UNM between Central and the SUB, and around the SUB. Maybe some action at other spots.

    NONE of it will be “sustainable” like the CHAZ / CHOP / CHAZOP goofballs in Seattle — if it lasts for more than a week, I’ll be surprised.

    I found this comment by David Brin on one of Michael Flynn’s posts — this is way, way, way too good not to screen-capture and share (URL is here) — [1]

    Position: David Brin claims that the political “left” “CONTAINS” a few whackjobs, while the political “right” “CONSISTS” of nothing but whackjobs. Thus, whenever Brin claims to be seeking “common ground” with those holding opposing viewpoints, he’s not being sincere, and should not be taken seriously.

    Evidence in support —

    This is “the” David Brin as in the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning skiffy author.
