Obama, Boehner move closer to ‘cliff’ deal. Good, if this gets rid of Boehner as Speaker before the fight over firearm rights, it will have been worth it. Heck, there's no way to save the whole, tottering structure anyway and if it collapses the whole gun control impetus goes down with it, since the only thing protecting the citizenry will be firearms in their own (or their neighbors') hands. Do I like that? Heck, no. I grieve for any innocents killed, especially in wars created by the grasping, selfish tyrannical bastards who almost always start them. The corrupt politicians and crony capitalists who milk the taxpayers with money printing, debt growth and other schemes ought to be hung. It's a choice, if there is a choice, between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. But consider that a 4th Generation civil war over firearms liberty will fall mostly on us, the ants, but an utter collapse of the economy and government -- especially federal government -- will fall heaviest on the grasshoppers in the cities. When the latter happens the best place to be is in a resilient community away from the cannibal zombie apocalypse. Is that selfish? You bet. It is nonetheless true. Both prospects are possible, if not probable, at this point. The only question is which happens first.
