Ever Thought You Would See This?

You have, and yes, it’s exactly what you think it is:

Death (literally) by Power Point

This flinch is a tell

Comment by Pat Hines is what I really wanted to pull out of this:

I hate to skewer your illusions, TPaine, but the US government’s military will do, at least above the 65% level, exactly what their superiors tell them to do, exactly like they did after Katrina in New Orleans and nearby Parishes.

Betting on the US government’s military to act within Constitutions limitations is a fantasy.

Look up a little further on that page to find the phrase, ‘preparing the battlespace’.

All, we are in for one hell of a fight. Better get ready now, though I have to admit, the concept behind John’s piece did make me smile a bit.

As to regular posting, I’m not sure when I will have time. Our major deal was complete as of last week, and now I’m working through transition and integration. 20 hour days have turned into 22 hour days much to Mrs. Matson’s chagrin. I still owe Kerodin an E&E post with pics. Will do my best to get that complete by weeks’ end.

On My Status As a Domestic “Combatant”

The NDAA is what it is. See my earlier post regarding Mike’s comment and you get where I stand. Could not have said it better myself, so, I use someone’s blog post. What can I say? I’m lazy and I suck. That being said…

I kinda am beginning to think that the wind somehow just changed direction.

Imagine DotMil rolling into south Fulton County here in Atlanta and starting this. Imagine that fence slowly but surely marching north to the burb in which I currently reside. Not much of challenge for them. Control the physical access. Eine papierin herr Matson!

Yeah, no. Somebody would likely get lit up with that shit, and it wouldn’t be where they reside in force.

Remember your Sun Tzu:

You can be sure of succeeding in your attacks
if you only attack places which are undefended.You can
ensure the safety of your defense if you only hold
positions that cannot be attacked.

If you step back a bit, it sure looks like the light at the end of the tunnel is a train.
