It is hard to decide which alarms me more: that the most impassioned call to arms comes not from RKBAians but from an Investment Management Analyst or that few RKBAians even acknowledge the imminent threat as it takes shape before our eyes.
The Three Percenters will say we need more time “to get ready”. Clock is ticking down folks, if you are not ready now how will you ever be ready when it is too late?
So I guess I am the fool-Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right….stuck in the middle again!
Does America still truly have the capacity, as a people, as a nation, to get angry? To demand redress of grievance? To call, support, and honor a general strike? To take up, keep and bear arms not to commit violence but to stand shoulder-to-shoulder as our Constitution recognizes as our God-given right to prevent violence against not only ourselves but our neighbors – any and all of them? To peacefully occupy The Capitol and shut it down – not to loot, pillage or destroy, but to force the cessation of all commerce in an unmistakable and singular statement: This far you have gone, and you shall take not one step further until each and every guilty man and woman is under indictment, the institutions and businesses responsible are closed, and the ill-gotten gains returned.
Do we still have what it takes to make that happen? Do we have any more Rosa Parks’ in America? Any Dr. Kings?
Or is all we have left in us a descent into random lawlessness – civil unrest, or even full-scale riots where the looting and burning is not of the banks and others who have robbed America, but of the random store-owner, house or car – simply because it’s there?
I fear for my nation and her future.
I fear we have too few men like that gentleman in Arizona and too many muggers in Lakeview.
