I would not look to the US constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012. I might look at the constitution of South Africa.

RBG died a few weeks before seeing her dream realized.

The Marxists are now re-enacting what Stalin did to the Ukrainians. This is a stuff that I tend to not think of to happened today but it did.

The holodomor is why abandoning cities and retreating to the countryside won't work.

When the Founding Fathers fought against the British Empire, they didn't retreated to the countryside and instead, fought them inch by inch in every major cities. This is getting more dangerous. These actions will sure to bring famine to the USA, as the left intended it to be.

What? No they didn't.

They repeatedly abandoned cities. House to house fighting was way too difficult, the Americans didn't have an adequate supply of bayonets, and urban warfare was a crazy plan even at the best of times because the whole thing could burn down.

No armed American resistance fought for control of Boston when the British occupied it. They besieged Boston, and surrounded it with Artillery, causing the British to then abandon it.

No armed American resistance fought for control of New York. After the Battle of Long Island, the Americans made mild attempts to keep the British from landing, but they eventually just evacuated.

The Americans abandoned Philadelphia, their capital.

The Americans surrendered to a British siege in Charleston (SC). They did not fight house to house.

The Americans repeatedly abandoned the control of cities because urban warfare was dangerous for all but crack infantry with excellent equipment. It's also a defensive fucking nightmare. It made more sense to burn towns than it was to waste time fighting in them. It's why the British burned Charlestown (MA) when they tried to push the Americans off of Bunker/Breed's Hill.

The Americans abandoned cities because it was basically lunacy to try and fight in them. Normally, towns and buildings were used for sniper fire (like at Bennington & Concord), or specific buildings were used as defensive strong-points (like the 1st Maryland's defense of the Church on Long Island to cover the American rout). The Americans did launch attacks on Trenton & Princeton because in both cases the British/Prussian garrison was completely unaware of their presence.

This is such a standard practice in the Napoleonic era that it's why civilian casualties were dramatically small in even the largest wars. Literally only 1 Gettysburg civilian died at the Battle of Gettysburg. She got hit by a stray round.

If you ever go on a ghost tour of Gettysburg, they always stop by that house. Supposedly the bullet hole is still there, but I really doubt the original wood lasted this long, I think they mocked it up as a prop

The would could have lasted if they had been actively preserving it, but I doubt that that's the case. They've repeatedly had to rebuild lots of Gettysburg.

On a side note, I'd never learned that the Americans didn't have proper, muzzle attachable, bayonets for most of their battles and units. When I found that out, suddenly, a lot of British military behavior made sense, but their commentary is infuriating. All those aggressive frontal assaults make sense because if you get close to the Americans... they have to break. They literally do not have bayonets and literally can't defend themselves from a charge. Meanwhile the British letters are all "haw haw haw, the Americans run from the bayonet. What cowards!" That's bullshit. Your rifles have pointy bits. Of course the Americans aren't going to get stabbed in the gut. No wonder they started shooting from 100 yards.

Simultaneously, it really gives credit to the Americans at the Battle of Germantown. They made a ballsy fucking charge right into the British lines, through a town, with close artillery support, under cover of fog, but with no bayonets. That's great to have those advantages, but make no mistake, charging a defensive position that has bayonets when you don't have one... is super sketch.

There's simply too many humans for that any more, anyway. People leaving cities en masse would just be a large-mammal version of a locust swarm, or army/soldier ants on the move. They might devour everything they can get their hands on, yeah - and then have to resort to eating each other once all the wildlife and cattle is dead or run away.

You know that Simpsons halloween episode with the clone Homers devouring everything in their path? It'd be remarkably like that, but with more blood and swearing, and with millions and not "just a handful".

And as far as raiding fields goes ... some clowns were up to that around here a few years ago; they trampled more than they stole.

I have to have a limit somewhere on decorum. You really can't just post shit that's openly in favor of literally gunning people down.

yeah, mess with the farmers. that'll get people on your side real quick.

They don't want to get people on their side. They want to do as much lasting damage as possible before anyone tries to stop them.

The left wants the American version of Holodomor baby, that'll ensure Donald Trump's demise because the farmers will now go after him!

Fucking criminals get millions in GoFundMe money to get away with literal murder.

This farm doesn't even get 10k.

Oh, man. They don’t realize what a miscalculation this was. Farmers are just about the only ‘normal’ white people that approach anything like a protected class. They are generally looked out for incredibly well because of the somewhat exaggerated, but still true ‘no farmers, no food.’

That, and the obvious part that farmers are typically in jurisdictions that are going to have their backs if they happen to start defending their property and killing intruders.

Yep, this just advanced the possibility of retaliatory bloodbath exponentially. And you can't forget- farming is NOT a wealthy career prospect.

It these days. A serious Ag tractor starts at $250,000. A combine STARTS at $500,000 and can easily get up to $1M with bells, whistles, and a couple headers. It took $2M in cash to plant just shy of 3,000 acres. That's not counting the $15,000,000 the land is worth these days. Farming is something you have to be born into frankly. And you really don't make any money until you get out of the business. That's because even if you clear $500,000 at the end of the year there's always a transmission that blows out and you are writing a $50,000 check for field repairs. Or you need to put up a new grain bin or something.

Norenia 3 points ago +3 / -0

Hell, that $500k you talk of clearing? Most of it is probably going into the loans made pay off the equipment.

Depends. We were an old farming family and my father had spent a 30 year career and retired as an exec at a Fortune 500. So by the time he took over he had a nice pension to live on and plenty of cash with which to take over. When I took over it was a similar situation. I had sold a successful business and my wife is a lawyer so we had other income sources to live on and plenty of cash in the bank. But it got to the point where we actually make more money renting the ground than we did farming it. It's been weird the last year to get in checks and then realize we could go out and afford to buy a new vehicle or in my case I could start looking at buying a Cessna 206 to indulge my airplane habit. Which airplanes man...drugs would be cheaper.

I'm not sure about this being legit. First of all, it's Nebraska. It's a blood red state. These are major commercial pieces of equipment, and it's a lot of fires. You mean to tell me that some Antifa guy, was just randomly driving in rural Nebraska, saw an American flag, and decided to burn 5-6 pieces of equipment?

That doesn't really make sense. If this was a targeted attack on a farm that was involved in some dispute with environmentalists, that would make more sense. But, just flying an American flag in Nebraska? That doesn't make sense.

American flags are pretty common all over the place in the US. They're pretty much not gonna bet targeted except by Leftist loonies in leftist hives. That's not rural Nebraska.

Talking to a friend that's a Sherriff's deputy up in Nebraska. His first reaction is "insurance fraud". But his second comment was that this isn't far from a liberal arts college in Hastings and in his words: "Shit's getting weird even around here." Now he's between Omaha and Lincoln further east of where this happened. After all the bar owner who got indicted after protecting himself from BLM was in Omaha.

That's fair. It's sketch, but it's not impossible. I just don't buy the tweet's logic of "there was a flag". Like I said, a targeted attack by a group would still make sense.

After all the bar owner who got indicted after protecting himself from BLM was in Omaha.

Right, the man who was driven to suicide by the Black National Socialist movement, whose friends & family abandoned him, whose land lords (for both his business and apartment) evicted him, and whose death was celebrated by both lynchers and their allies in the state government.

I forgot.
