Yesterday was never going to be great since the forecast was for 100% chance of rain all day long. I decided I was going to make the best of it anyway. I put a cylinder of 125gr. +P .38 Special through my new revolver to function test it (and just for the fun of it), and my evening plans included Captain Morgan Private Stock and a My Uzi Weighs A Ton cigar. I was even going to blog about the good times so that I could have some kind of positive post for the 4th.
Then I read this, about government thugs kicking in doors so they can 'borrow' a law abiding citizens house without consent.
And then I went over to Tam's and learned that TJIC was surrounded by MA government thugs, who, on the FUCKING 4TH OF JULY had come to seize his lady's guns. On Independence Day.
I decided at that point that there was nothing to celebrate. We live in a police state that far surpasses anything King George ever did, and we are only 'free' in comparison to people whose governments are fucking them even more than ours. "Better off than that poor sucker over there" is better, but it's not independence and it is not freedom.
So fuck it. I decided I'd enjoy what I have while I got it. I shot my ATF approved gun, smoked my ATF approved cigar, and drank my ATF approved booze.
