Deplorable Diversity

A lot of “deplorables” showed up to donate during last week’s fundraiser. Below is the final tally of places, after all the stragglers came in:

Stateside: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin

Far Abroad: Germany, Hungary, India, Israel, Lithuania, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Thailand, and the UK

Canada: Alberta, British Columbia, Newfoundland, Ontario, and Saskatchewan

Australia: Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, South Australia, Victoria, and Western Australia

The spring quarter was the Corona Quarter. It seems the summer quarter is shaping up to be the Race Riot Quarter. When I open the next fundraiser in the dog days of August, I dread to think what conditions will be like at that point.

Yes, the lockdown will probably be over by then. But will city-dwellers be cowering behind locked doors, hoping the looters and arsonists stay away from their neighborhood? Will Gates of Vienna readers in urban centers be looking out their windows at towering columns of smoke while sirens wail all around them?

Or will a brand new deadly crisis have appeared, ginned up by the media in a last desperate bid to keep Donald Trump from being re-elected in November?

Once again, I dread to think…

One thought on “Deplorable Diversity

  1. Not cowering at all. Got the Remington 870 out a few nights ago and have since put it away again. My besty shoots a trap league and hand loads. He gave me a box of his target loads he says are too hot too shoot clays. Those aren’t my only shells but they were a gift and I know it would warm his heart if I used them for something ‘important’.

    I know everyone has grown up on TV and thinks 00 buck is the end all but I’m guessing 1 1/8 oz of #8 shot will be plenty of discouragement. He was loading 18.3 gr of powder and pulled it back a little so he wouldn’t have to change his lead. Heck, there was a time when people loaded gravel and rock salt and it seemed to do the job. Hell on a barrel though.

    Not worried, prepared. But I think it’s passed – this time. It will probably happen again when Trump wins. Meh, I’m in the burbs of LA. Squarely middle class. Not much to steal and plenty of us to shoot back if the cops don’t come. The skinny jeans wearing man bun soy boys aren’t coming. Once the malls are emptied out they run home to mommy.

    I passed towering columns of smoke on my way home from work in the LA riots of ’92. Nothing new here. Watts, Rodney King, Baby needs a flat screen. There’s always something at hand to be outraged about. My vote is for a novel tactic for the October surprise. It will be a fail except for the timing and the media support but I think the bigger threat to the election process will be fraud.
