With six you get Gadsden flag

I suppose attention needs to be paid around these parts to this summer's nonsense in Vassar. I was going to a week or o ago, because someone published a story with a bunch of hilarious photos of people walking around with Gadsden flags and guns and a sign that said that Jesus wouldn't break laws (apparently someone has confused Jesus with Ward Cleaver, which I guess is pretty understandable). That opportunity came and went, but there was another one this morning. I think this quote from the story sums up America, 2014 excellently.

“I don’t understand the guns,” said Jake Jacobson, a retired airline pilot from Lake Odessa.

That's in response to people walking around the town heavily armed saying things like this:

“If you allow the immigrants to take over, the country will be destroyed,” said Krol, 56, a building contractor from Linden.

and this:

“My rattle is rattling,” Krol said. “Next is the bite.”

What in Hell does any of that mean? Fuck if I know. But, I think we can enjoy the joke built into the first one.

We have a problem with child immigrants, and not only do these clowns go to a town they don't live in and start trying to strong arm local merchants into sharing their opinions but they've made it all about firearms.

Rattles, bites, bells (4.00 / 2)
"My rattle is rattling," Krol said. "Next is the bite."

Keep in mind, these are the kind of folks who have an affinity for the person who said this:

He who warned uh, the British that they weren't gonna be takin' away our arms, uh by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed.

And we all know how far Linden is from Vassar . . . (0.00 / 0)
Better part of an hour--that's if you follow "government" speed laws. Something tells me that Mr. Krol hasn't had too many contracts lately. The whole thing reeks of heavy attendance by people with a suspicious abundance of daylight free time.
Read down to see the hellkite's response to the hardware store owner who told he wasn't very worried about little brown kids coming to town--she started her little Facebook lynch mob of folks who'll never shop at his store again--not that they ever did.
Madame DeFarge of the Cornstalks--how long before she starts running for Mike Green's seat?

What does it mean? (0.00 / 0)
It means that these teabillies have no clue, of course. Don't mistake random words for intelligent communication.
