It has been awhile since I’ve put up a ding bat political post. In the spirit of the infamous Washington State Owl Party, out with logic and on with lunacy, here it goes.
While the true story of the Oklahoma City bombing may never be known, most will agree it was brought about by the participant’s perceived outrage of government overreach and arrogance.
What I remember most about the aftermath, lasting several years, was a marked change in the attitudes of government employees towards the populace. This was at all levels. City Hall, the local post office, county, state and federal agencies all seemed to display a helpful attitude. There was an undertone of fear and wariness on their part. At least, this was my experience and perception.
How soon memories fade, and old, bad attitudes come back. Does any of these people not recognize the anger and discontent bubbling within the populace? That next eruption of outrage may eclipse the OKC bombing a hundredfold? Nah, they are smug in their insular worlds.
Today, it isn’t monthly mimeograph pamphlets in the mail; it is instant transmitting of views and information via the internet. Even a person like me with little financial resources can get his opinions out to the world (rather effectively per Sitemeter). Talented folks with real wordsmith skills and understanding can have a huge impact. Look no further than the works of Vanderboegh and Correia in exposing “Fast and Furious”.
Damn, I don’t want to see this country explode. With the Lightbringer’s promise to use, “his pen and phone”, along with the complicity of Progressive politicians and the cheerleading of the 4th Estate, I think it is inevitable.
