No magazine!
On the cover of today’s NY Post, we see a masked NG Trooper standing in the DC area (capitol dome in the background), in his digital-camo utility uniform, carrying his scoped M4, muzzle down, finger draped over the trigger-guard, manual safety “on.”
Near-perfect picture of a soldier dutifully guarding his capitol city.
Except, there is no magazine in his rifle!
Once again, our “unarmed forces” really mean business, except when they conspicuously don’t!
The incoming administration obviously doesn’t trust these gallant troopers any more than the last one did!
We’re told our FBI is busily “vetting” all these NG troopers. I wonder if the FBI is “vetting” its own people!
“No society has succeeded in abolishing the distinction between ruler and ruled. To be a ruler gives one ‘special status’ and usually, special privileges
Throughout Communist nations, the abolition of the old ‘ruling class’ was followed by the rise of a new class of party bosses and well-placed bureaucrats, whose behavior and life-style came more and more to resemble that of their much-denounced predecessors.”
Peter Singer
Imagine that!
