GWB Jan 19 2020 at 7:36 am We can only hope. If only buckets of roof tar weren’t so danged heavy….. Henry Jan 19 2020 at 12:09 am Now for some actual history of how Virginians handle gun-grabbers (OK, technically powder-grabbers): When Lord Dunmore confiscated the powder at Williamsburg, Patrick Henry marched on Dunmore’s treasurer with a group of armed men, and didn’t leave until he had cash in hand from him to replace it fully. This was what our government today would call a “terrorist” action. Subsequently, the Orange County committee published in the Virginia Gazette a resolution of support for Patrick Henry entitled, “AN ENDORSEMENT OF VIOLENCE AND REPRISAL.” It was signed by chairman James Madison and others. An “endorsement of violence,” fancy that. Should it come to that, we can rest ourselves that we are in good company, gentlemen. GWB Jan 19 2020 at 7:58 am Do you have a link? I can’t find it with my search-fu (which sucks), and would love to read what those treasonous radicals* said. (* Not saying that like it’s a bad thing.) Henry Jan 20 2020 at 12:53 am I find only one other reference to it on the web: “Scribner, ‘Revolutionary Virginia,’ 3:112-13.” It seems to be a massive multi-volume work, but can be found in libraries close to you by going to https://www.worldcat.org/title/revolutionary-virginia-the-road-to-independence/oclc/802770 I myself came across this informational gem on a personal tour of the scene of the crime. I took a photo of the relevant plaque, but since this was before digital photography, I’d be hard-pressed to find it now. John M. Jan 19 2020 at 1:00 am Wait – Jan in a top? Where are they… definitely not Argentina! John M. Jan 19 2020 at 1:02 am …and thinking about it, why shouldn’t Damon make up history? The media certainly does! Pamela Jan 19 2020 at 1:11 am https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AV2mFEVtccY Hmm. Interesting. Old Codger Jan 19 2020 at 11:18 am To what POTUS action is he referring, Ma’am? Pamela Jan 19 2020 at 1:52 pm https://www.dcclothesline.com/2020/01/18/faa-declares-airspace-over-richmond-va-national-defense-airspace-until-after-lobby-day/?fbclid=IwAR02oxMHH-iDYF1Xs0O84UYy-Cv_eHoJE1nFz_bn26VmlNQ3gurRsI-T4Y4 Someone appears to have thrown a money wrench in the Tar Baby’s gang to go after the 2nd Amendment Crown for Lobby Day tomorrow. Kafiroon Jan 19 2020 at 4:24 am There is one point to consider and maybe keep in mind. Punching a Tar Baby leads to being trapped. Now where is that Briar Patch? Bill G Jan 19 2020 at 4:45 am Putting agents provocateur into a peaceful crowd? Northam would never sink to such a level. Rise to it, maybe. Fox2! Jan 19 2020 at 4:50 am Klan Act violation as the predicate felony for a RICO action? Pete231 Jan 19 2020 at 4:50 am Gov. Coonman, it’s time for your pineapple enema ( ala “Little Nicky”), stalk end first and no lube ! Old Codger Jan 19 2020 at 11:21 am Pineapple? i was thinking more along the lines of a cactus – barrel or saguaro. Badger Jan 19 2020 at 7:23 am I wish them well tomorrow. Weather looks like severe clear, so the .mil drones & surveillance aircraft that operate in the temporarily restricted airspace will have clear views. Be a shame if someone was able to also access a couple of highpoint overlooks to that area with quality cameras so that – later – “alleged” can be washed with “actual.” The VCDL has previously had very good relations with VA SP and Capital police for these things. We’ll see how their behavior is tomorrow – the reputation is the uniforms’ to lose. Punta Gorda Jan 19 2020 at 8:29 am In my experience they seem to have the innate skills of Larry, Moe, and Curly. Pamela Jan 19 2020 at 4:50 pm One thought I have is should Northam substitute the local LEOs with UN Hires dressed as Locals LEOs and turn them loose. interventor Jan 19 2020 at 8:28 am I’ve long advocated for restoring the tradition of applications of pine tar and feathers upon politicians that attempt to remove liberties and rob the public purse. It’s a humane step, lesser than the swinging from a rope, they deserve. cmblake6 Jan 19 2020 at 1:36 pm I’d settle for rope, even though tar and feathers would be more entertaining. Henry Jan 20 2020 at 12:55 am The contemporary analog would be superglue and packing peanuts. DogByte6RER Jan 19 2020 at 9:08 am Some interesting historical perspective … https://allthingsliberty.com/2013/12/5-myths-tarring-feathering/ Old Codger Jan 19 2020 at 11:33 am If it caused so much as a blister it would constitute aggravated assault in pretty much every state in the union and would be a felony. I don’t know about Va, but most states have statutes making assault of a public servant a more serious offense. I wonder if thinning the pine tar with a solvent – turpentine? – would allow the material to flow easily without needing to be so hot. 140 degrees is definite scalding territory. The turpentine should evaporate quickly enough to make the feathers stick. A simpler, more modern equivalent might be to use cheap spray adhesive and then dump the feathers on the victim. ExNuke Jan 19 2020 at 9:21 am What is the name of the government site for citizen petitions for the President requesting actions? The GOA and VCDL should start a petition asking President Trump to direct the DOJ to open an investigation of Northam and the Virginia Legislature for Violation Of Constitutional Rights Under Color Of Law and Conspiracy To Violate Constitutional Rights Under Color Of Law. There are enough of us aware of Coonman’s power grab that it might push the Department of “Just Us” to actually act like the Department of Justice. cmblake6 Jan 19 2020 at 1:38 pm I’m thinking it’s whitehouse.gov. I might be wrong, but that seems right. Buck Jan 19 2020 at 11:53 pm ExNuke if you’re referring to the Right to Petition the government for a redress of grievances in the First Amendment, that hasn’t been honored for a long time. In direct contradiction to the debates surrounding the framing of the First Amendment Petition Clause, the Supreme Court has erroneously concluded that the right to petition government has never included a duty of government response. A careful examination of historical practices reveals not only that the Supreme Court’s analysis of petitioning is misguided, but that the Court has it backwards. Wood Jan 19 2020 at 10:05 am Rent a couple box trucks. Hang banners upon them which read “ACME Tar Co.” and “Chicken Little’s Feathers”. Park them near the gathering point… JTC Jan 19 2020 at 12:18 pm But…the NYT just told me the only legislation pending the gov’s signature is “background check to purchase a gun” and “no guns in gov buildings”, and they are considering a bill to “keep guns from those who are a danger to themselves or others”. Sounds like simple common sense, no? Everybody just calm down, nothing’s awry… JTC Jan 19 2020 at 12:43 pm If you haven’t watched the vid of today’s launch and recovery of the SpaceX Dragon you should…it is awesome and a final test for manned launches. Hopes and prayers that it portends a hopeful future for our next generations. Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Jan 20 2020 at 12:11 am Time to seriously work to escape the nest, a la Robert Heinlein.
