Yet Another Mass Shooting

Update: 10 dead, including 51 year old Boulder Police Officer Eric Talley. RIP Eric, until we meet again on Fiddler’s Green.

You may have seen the news today. Another mass shooting. This one was about 15 miles from my house, so a little closer to home than some. If you need links, all you need to do is go to any major news site and I’m sure you’ll find them. This is the nation’s number one story this evening. I spent the afternoon listening to my brothers in blue on the police scanner. Not radio traffic I wanted to hear. One police officer was killed and several other civilians inside a local grocery store were gunned down. I just finished watching the news conference which, while national news outlets will have much type, can be boiled down to one sentence, “We had an active shooter situation today with multiple people killed, including one police officer and the investigation is ongoing.” At that point, the press did what the do best and made complete utter fools of themselves not accepting that sentence and asking every stupid and moronic question they could ask.

The internet is ablaze with talk of white supremacy and crazy conservative racist gunmen. Who am I to say who did this and what their motive was? I know as much as you. I will say one thing, having been born and raised in Boulder, Colorado, and lived in this county my entire life except for my service in the military: Boulder, Colorado, is run by leftist Democrats. There is no mixture of politicians within their government. The whole town is governed by a 100% Democrat controlled city council, the entire county is run by a 100% Democrat board of commissioners, and about 65-70% of the population are Democrats. (It may come as a surprise, but in the 1950’s and early 1960’s, Boulder was THE center of Republican politics in Colorado.) While I am not a registered Republican, anyone who reads my posts knows me to be ultra-conservative. I know NO one on my block who isn’t a Democrat. Should I leave? Of course. I’m not stupid. I’d have left years ago, but I am married to my best friend. We’ve been married for going on 48 years. Some of her grandchildren live here and she does NOT want to leave them. I’ll stick it out behind enemy lines because I love my wife. This is the same reason there are a LOT of good Republicans/Conservatives who live in places like California, Illinois, New York, and probably even Portland, Oregon.

That said, you do the math. The odds are highly in favor of the shooter being other than a white supremacist and racist conservative asshole. Could he/she be a Democrat? Of course, nobody has a clue, so anything is possible.

Please pray for my county and community. As yet, I don’t know the identity of the police officer. In all honesty, most of the cops I worked with are probably all long retired, but there are a few seriously old geezers who just can’t leave no matter what. Even if it isn’t one of the men I know well, it is tragic that a fellow officer was killed today by an insane gunmen. That’s a given, I don’t need a press conference to know that.

While the carnage and death is the saddest part of the day, almost as sad is the number of Democrats that will come out of the woodwork and not let this “crisis go to waste” while they don’t give two shits about the dead officer or the other victims of today’s carnage.

Oh, and on another note, while I spent most of my afternoon glued to the police radio traffic, I did see a few news clips here and there. Hard not to since it was on every single channel since about 2:30pm and is still nonstop. I concluded what I already knew to be true. Had the gunmen come out of the store guns blazing and killed every news reporter there, I would not have shed a tear. These people are truly some of the most despicable human beings on the planet. The only thing lower are the insane nutballs that actually commit these heinous crimes.

    I should have appended this to the end of the post. From comments at Faux News:

    Sensible gun control laws:

    If you are liberal, you may not own or possess a firearm.
    If you vote Democrat, you may not own or possess a firearm.
    If you believe that a gun is responsible for the death of a person, you may not own or possess a firearm.
    If you believe that making guns illegal will keep you safe, you may not own or possess a firearm.

    See, conservatives can compromise on sensible gun control legislation.

    It was stated a few weeks ago this would happen even before it actually happened

    It’s about gun control taking our guns 100% away from the American People

    We’ll be hearing from O (again) in a short amount of time on this matter

    It’s a virtual certainty that we will NEVER hear the truth behind the shooters ideology and motivation….unless it serves the lefts agenda. The authorities now REFUSE to identify the
    subjects in such crimes for hours or more so that Big Tech has a chance to audit and scrub
    the suspects online presence to remove any information that doesn’t serve the lefts agenda.

    And this shooting….like the one in Georgia was predicted. We had LOTS of “spree shootings” while Obozo was in office….and very few when Trump was POTUS. Now that the dems are back in the saddle they are pulling the strings on their wacko believers to get them to act out in order to provide
    an excuse for the gun grabbing they have been plotting and planning for. Expect MORE of these incidents in the coming weeks as the left ramps up it’s assault on the Second Amendment.

    Notice how quickly the skin color of the Atlanta killier was publicized? Nothing but “crickets” from Boulder.

    They are waving the false flag again….

    Reality check:

    The shift from conservative constitutional thinking to Mass-mind control Socialism is rapidly overtaking the country. Wishing it won’t happen is a non-starter.

    In the not too distant future gun owners must decide

    1-Surrender weapons voluntary

    2-Refuse and go to jail

    3-Refuse, resist and Die

    In all of the 3 cases you’re gonna wind up disarmed. And if you haven’t opted for #3 you’re gonna be severely shocked when the police officers you know personally are the ones enthusiastically doing the confiscation.

    Forget the White Knight Conservative Republican politicians coming to your defense. The culture most of us knew growing up in the 1950s is gone.

    “We’re DOOMED”, like it or not. Reality overrules fantasy every time.
