The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg

So back on August 6th, the attorney general for the state of NY, Letitia James, has announced that she's basically trying to put the NRA out of business. She has accused the NRA leaders of financial malfeasance and her solution is to dissolve the entire organization.

Note that she's not bringing criminal charges against the NRA leaders, she just wants the entire organization gone. No half measures here!

I think she's overplaying her hand. As I said, she's a progressive. Overplaying their hand is what progressives do.

This is obviously a political hit. In fact, it's clear that Letitia James has pretty much politicized the office of the NY State Attorney General, like all progressives do.

But how bad is her timing?

Coming as it does right after many American cities have been set on fire by rioting mobs which have resulted in record firearms sales, many by first-time buyers and even many by liberals. Imagine that: Progressives have figured out a way to get Americans to buy more guns. Because if there's one thing that this summer has taught Americans, it's the necessity of having the means to defend yourself against looting, rioting thugs.

But the message from the Democrats is

1. Your cities will burn
2. The police will be prevented from helping you.
3. And we're going to try to shut down the biggest organization that will support you.
4. Shut up, peasants

And you have to ask, WTF? The intent, ultimate goal, and timing of James' lawsuit is are all mind-bogglingly stupid. Why are the Democrats going out of their way to give reasons to not vote for them?

Look at their convention. There's *not one* Democrat who will emphatically and unequivocally condemn the rioting and looting of our cities. Because all the Democrats have to do to do well in the election is to not be batshit insane. That's it. But they just can't.

When he is 97 years old and long retired, President Trump is going to write a book explaining how he successfully managed to sneak in a number of deep-cover operatives into various levels of the Democrat Party whose sole mission is to come up with really stupid, self-destructive ideas and then trick the Democrats into implementing them. And I'd guess that nothing in this book would surprise me in the least.

Monday's Who Dis: I first saw Colombian hottie Sofía Vergara in the 2012 reboot of The Three Stooges and was immediately impressed by her huge and spectacular... comedic acting chops. She was *really* funny and that movie is criminally underrated, in my opinion. She has been married since 2015 to Joe Manganiello, who, according to imdb.com, skydives with the Army's parachute team "The Golden Knights". He also used to shovel sand and gravel off of a truck and do demolitions for a construction company. So he's not a soy boy. They were in the 2019 film Bottom of the 9th together.
