Resurgence of the Klan: The Upside

I first published this entry on the RedState Diary section. A few hours, and approving comments from fellow diarists, later, the article was down. This is the first time RedState has pulled something of mine down. Perhaps the title- clearly a baiting tactic- may have something to do with it; or maybe it’s the subtle suggestion that one good reason to have an armed citizenry is in case the machine- the government- needs to be forcefully righted. I listen to Erickson frequently and I know he finds any reference- however slight- to forceful clashes with the government utterly preposterous and maniacal. 

I stick by this article. There is nothing maniacal or racist about it. I was simply seeing the upside of an otherwise semi-disturbing trend.

I hope the co-worker who made the statement which is the premise of this rant doesn’t take it too personal…if he ever reads it. But some things are just too good not to share.

The brave and patriotic actions of whistleblower Edward Snowden face the threat of being blended  and, ultimately rendered insignificant, into a stew of partisan bickering and mind-numbing rhetoric. God help us all.

“Unintended Benefits of Obamacare”

There’s a speculative aspect of Obamacare that, if true, might not be as bad as everyone thinks. Many times we must be forced like children into somethings beneficial.
