If the insurgents are successful in neutering the cops,
you and myself,
and most Americans who think the same way
will be forced to walk their talk.

I hope that there are still a majority of us that are in that boat with you……………..
Subject: The New Normal
I used to think I was pretty much just a regular person,
but I was born white into a two-parent household
which now, whether I like it or not,
makes me "Privileged,"
a racist & responsible for slavery.
By today's standards, I am a fiscal & moral conservative, which,
makes me a fascist because
I plan, budget & support myself.
I went to school & always held a job.
But I now find out that I didn't earn it because I was "advantaged."
I am not a Muslim,
which now labels me as an infidel.
I believe in the 2nd Amendment,
which makes me a de facto member of a vast gun lobby.
I doubt much of what "mainstream" media tells me, which makes me a right-wing conspiracy nut.
I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, making me a xenophobe.
I believe in hard work and fair compensation, which today makes me an anti-socialist.
I believe our system guarantees freedom of effort
– not freedom of outcome, which makes me a borderline sociopath.
I believe in the defense and protection of America for and by all citizens, now making me a militant.
I am proud of our flag, what it stands for and the many who died to let it fly,
and I stand and salute during our National Anthem,
so I must be a racist.
All this happened in the last 10 to 12 years; and, if that wasn't enough to deal with,
now I don't even know which restroom to use…
and I gotta go more FREQUENTLY.
