    Sam as a Founding Mother. That might be interesting to see.

    Especially since those 18th century women were always fumbling with their bodies.

    And garters.

    (women didn’t wear undies back then (hint, hint))

    • GruntGI

      Well, they might have been fumbling with their bodies…we will likely never know.

      🙂

    • Delilah T.

      Yeah, we did too wear undies, formwiz. Layers and layers of them. I made period clothing to wear to Renaissance Faires. You try making your way around in chemise, bumroll, corset, hoops, seven petticoats, a doublet, a forepart and an overskirt, in addition to pantalettes that had your stockinettes pinned to them.

      No undies? I don’t think so! That that stuff went from the 13th century up to the 19th century, when we girls ditched the hoops and other stuff in favor of the newly-arrived empire waisted drapey dress, which was basically a maternity dress, until we all decided we wanted our 18-inche waistlines back and went back to corsets and multipl petticoats and hoops, and yes, stockings.

      I don’t know where you get the notion that women didn’t wear undies, but it is completely incorrect.

      • GruntGI

        Well, darn…no wonder our Founding Fathers started a revolution…sounds like it would take them days to get our Founding Mothers undressed to get their ramrods straightened.

        No wonder we are so pissed off at the British.

        That’s why I like wearing sarongs

        • Interventor

          Sarong are so right.

      • formwiz

        There was a crime in London described as “turning women upside down”, so most women didn’t.

        Some in the upper classes might have worn drawers because woemn at the French court did it as a kind of cross-dressing, but I disagree it was commonplace.

    • Interventor

      A reason the Can Can was so popular – sans culottes.

      • formwiz

        Also topless. There are some interesting illustrations from the Belle Epoque on that subject.

  • formwiz

    Ooops, supposed to be bodices.

    • Henry

      Thanks for the correction. I was begining to think I hadn’t seen any the correct historical re-enactments.

  • WayneM

    I’m sure the Founding Fathers would be delighted with how cultural marxists have interpreted the Constitution into a near meaningless document…

    Amazing. In our divorce with the left, they get custody of football. 😛

    • Pamela

      They are better suited for things which are limp and flat.

      • itsspideyman

        Pamela, you are a pistol, honey.

        • Pamela

          Thank you Spidey and I know how to use one.

    • Deplorable B Woodman

      No…..WE get football, and the choice of players.
      Maybe we’ll adopt that Aussie version…

      • Pamela

        Yeah! Blood Donations 😉

      • Fox2!

        Only if the officials wear straw boaters and make those jive hand motions for a score.

      • Fox2!

        What’s a hand-ball?

    Education is their main stronghold. As long as they control education they can brainwash the students.
    And what will the next generation of teachers, today’s Antifa, be like?

  • eon

    Well, according to Paul J. Watson, Antifa is now openly calling for “civil war”;

    https://www.infowars.com/antifa-plans-civil-war-to-overthrow-the-government/

    So I’d say the answer is “yes”.

    Rather like the last letter from the alleged Zodiac killer, they are shouting that they are “now in control of all things”, and they will settle for nothing less than Blood , Devastation, Death, War, and Horror to “depose the Trump/Pence regime'”. And incidentally kill anybody and everybody they define as a Nazi, which by all indications amounts to about 90% of the American people.

    Future historians will have to delve deeply into the psyche of those still around to speak as to exactly what it is about the psychology of the left that invariably demands everybody else’s blood, while simultaneously insisting that it’s everybody else who is violent and insane, rather than themselves.

      Bring it! I ain’t gettin’ any younger. I want to at least be able to see my targets.

      • Merle

        yeah, I already need a scope to see much of anything!!! 🙁

  • PaulS

    This Antifa group is starting to sound a lot like the islamist groups. Their next phase may be to start killing each other and blaming everyone else.

    And as for the “Never Full Lamebrains”, there are some things that can’t be challenged for review, no do-overs dipshitz!

  • Alex J

    Chris

    Is the Revolution starting soon? By that I speak of the new comic strip, Sir.

    • Chris Muir

      After Irma and thumb, it’s put off to October…the author, Sam, will explain later this week!

      • Brasspounder

        Thanks, Chris. I’m looking forward to it.

      • Deplorable B Woodman

        (End of) October? What a great birthday present! Thanks, Chris!

      • GruntGI

        Heh, can’t wait to see that (ahem) explanation…

      • Delilah T.

        I’ve seen a video where the Bad People are blocking a freeway in Los Angeles, holding up signs that read ‘November 4 It Starts’. Is that the Rev9lution? If so, how do we stop it? It looks destructive to me.

        • Deplorable B Woodman

          I’ll be on the road that day travelling to visit my mother down in Phoenix. But with all that forewarning, I’ll be as ready as I can be, in spite of the odd looks my wife will give me.

          • Delilah T.

            Just be careful!

          • Deplorable B Woodman

            Thank you Delilah, with my wife’s and God’s help, I’ll do my best to be careful.

    Is it time?

    Not until sufficient numbers say it is. Rebellions only start when enough people act up sufficiently. With the makeup of the Judiciary, Congress, State and City elected Rulers Leaders as it is, I’m not entirely convinced that ANY leftist group can actually start a revolution since said Ruling Governing bodies are unlikely in the extreme to consider their actions to be other than right and proper or at the very least ignorable. The only ones who can actually “start” a revolution would perforce be members of HRC’s “deplorable” class. Until and unless the increasingly militant left commences direct action against deplorables resulting in organized action in response, I do not see how even that could spark a revolution. I believe that for a rebellion to commence, it will have to be the result of intense, outrageous, direct government action against “deplorables”. I do not see that as probable so long as Trump is in office and keeping a lid upon things. If we deplorables can re-elect Trump in ’20, I do not see how conditions will favor the sort of direct, brutal, outrageous, and intense government activity (think British Crown in late 1760s through mid 1770s) necessary to spur a rebellion by the members of the deplorable class.

  • Old Codger

    If we deplorables can re-elect Trump in ’20, I do not see how conditions will favor the sort of direct, brutal, outrageous, and intense government activity (think British Crown in late 1760s through mid 1770s) necessary to spur a rebellion by the members of the deplorable class before the mid to late ’20s. Even if the left does succeed in stealing the election in 20. it will still require years of activity by a leftist government to spark a revolution. As Jefferson wrote in the rebels’ manifesto, people will put up with a whole lot of crap before rebelling. Rebellions do not simply “spring up” over night. Even the most ardent of revolutionaries do not simply jump willy-nilly into a revolution since participating in one presents a very real chance of getting one DEAD and thus unable to enjoy the fruits of one’s sacrifice.

  • armedandsafe

    In my opinion, any “civil war” will not be started by us, the deplorables. What I do see is the “Lefts” the “antifas” the “anarchists” and the “controllers” joining together to purge our country of all those they detest. When that happens, we will see a sudden and swift counter by us, the deplorables, to put the country back on track.
    It won’t be pretty.

    • Deplorable B Woodman

      A “civil” war………isn’t. An oxymoron.

  • Delilah T.

    Someone needs to tell these “revolutionaries” that the Soviet Union died in 1989 and hasn’t come back to life since then. It was bankrupt. A\conglomerate of states that sat on a wealth of crude oil and natural gas, and mineral wealth that could have put it on top of the world, collapsed because it was bankrupt.

    And when these twits decide to try their “revolution”, the things they depend on, like food resources, coffee bars, the internet, heat, water, electricity — well, they can just kiss all that goodbye because there won’t be any of it available.

    Power stations and gas pipelines (which they hate!) will be shut down, so no heat or electricity will be generated. Coffee won’t be available, either, because imports won’t be coming ashore or delivered. The internet will be shut down until Big Brother and the Ministry of Truth decide to open it back up. Food won’t be delivered, stores will have bare shelves, and even over the counter medicines will be gone. And water? If it comes out of the faucet, it should be boiled and reboiled before using and even then, it should be boiled again…but that’s if there is any water at all.

    Shut down a thriving capitalist economy and this is what you get.

    Oh, wait – that’s already going on in Venezuela

    Chris, I’m bit preaching here. Just stating facts.

    • Pamela

      Reality is not part of their equation.
      There is a series of books titled 299 Days.
      Interesting reading.

      • Delilah T.

        Just the blog site is interesting reading. The 1965, 1977, and 1990s blackouts in New York City, when the power grid failed, were prime examples of what happens when the system simply collapses Remember when Hurricane Sandy ripped right through Long Island and no one could put out the house fires that followed, because of storm damage? It’s that bad in Puerto Rico. But what if the help now in PR and more on its way never came?
        I think most of the world is teetering on the edge right now.
        Sorry, don’t mean to sound so pessimistic, but still….

    Auburn vs Mississippi State, Damn Straight GAME ON!!! War Eagle!

  • Spin Drift

    Auburn win, game over. War Eagle!

    As to the revolutionaries, bring it. The average American that is fed up with the BS going on and will do their duty to save this republic. They don’t get the press, go by the name of deplorables, flyoverlanders, rubes, evangelicals, the great unwashed. They have always answered the call. Reluctantly to do what needed to be done but knowing that if they don’t there will be no country for their progeny born and unborn. The response will be slow but it will be ugly and fierce and unforgiving. They know that it will be for all the marbles and will behave accordingly.
