Amy Pond: You took my baby from me. And hurt her. And now she’s all grown up and she’s fine, but I’ll never see my baby again.
Madame Kovar­ian: But you’ll still save me, though. Because *he* would, and you’d never do any­thing to dis­ap­point your pre­cious Doc­tor.
Rory: Ma’am, we have to go, now!
Amy Pond: [to Kovar­ian] The Doc­tor is very pre­cious to me, you’re right. But do you know what else he is, Madame Kovar­ian? Not here.

If you’ve read the first three parts of my wor­ries con­cern­ing the IRS scan­dal there is one assump­tion that might not make sense to you.

The left often por­trays the Tea Party as a group of vio­lent gun tot­ing thugs, ready to snap into a multi-​shot rage at the drop of a hat. A col­lec­tion of cow­boys. That being the case, why on earth would they not fear to pro­voke such well armed peo­ple with a vio­lent streak?

The answer is very sim­ple. The left may say all these things about the right and vio­lence, but the lead­ers who spew this stuff know it sim­ply isn’t true.

They’ve seen the tea party crowds pick up after them­selves, they’ve seen the right to life marches bury the cap­i­tal in peo­ple with­out an arrest. They saw Glenn Beck events take place with lit­tle or no incidents.

Even more sig­nif­i­cantly they’ve seen their own speak­ers at col­leges around the coun­try walk with­out fear while speak­ers of the right need mas­sive secu­rity to function.

This has gone on for years and years and years with­out a reac­tion. The left assumes that as long as they don’t strike first at the right they can do what they wish. It’s reached the point where the very sug­ges­tion that the right would fight back is almost quaint.

This for­gets a basic fact about the tra­di­tional Amer­i­can Cul­ture that the left have aban­doned: Amer­i­cans take a long time to reach their break­ing point but if you keep prod­ding them they even­tu­ally reach it. Consider:

There were decades of prob­lems with Eng­land before the colonies finally rebelled and even so only a 13 of the sup­ported it.

We paid off the Bar­bary pirates for years before finally decid­ing Enough!

Impress­ment went on for many years before War was declared on England

Ten years passed between the Alamo and the Mex­i­can war

The slav­ery issue boiled for decades before Sumter, Europe fought for 3 years before Amer­ica jumped into World War I and if Japan didn’t hit Pearl Har­bor FDR would have had a hard time get­ting the US to declare war on the Nazi’s.

Even in mod­ern times, the 1st gulf war took months before things started. With­out Sep­tem­ber 11th there are no wars in Iraq or Afghanistan and even in Iraq it was a very long build up to war and votes in con­gress before the bombs started falling.

Amer­i­can cul­ture tra­di­tion­ally is like an old Pop­eye car­toon. It takes hit after hit after hit until finally it exclaims:

Or if you want a more cur­rent exam­ple one you might under­stand bet­ter. (and cur­rent is pretty rel­a­tive here) con­sider the Star Trek the Next gen­er­a­tion episode: The Most Toys. After kid­nap­ping and impris­on­ment Data finally gets a chance to escape.

When peo­ple read this this

As chair­man of the House Home­land Secu­rity over­sight sub­com­mit­tee, Dun­can (R-S.C.) toured a fed­eral law enforce­ment facil­ity in late May and noticed agents train­ing with the semi-​automatic weapons at a fir­ing range. They iden­ti­fied them­selves as IRS, he said.

When I left there, it’s been bug­ging me for weeks now, why IRS agents are train­ing with a semi-​automatic rifle AR-​15, which has stand-​off capa­bil­ity,” Dun­can told POLITICO. “Are Amer­i­cans that much of a tar­get that you need that kind of capability?”

and this:

A bureau­cracy is bad. A politi­cized bureau­cracy is worse. A para­mil­i­tary politi­cized bureau­cracy is nuts. And, in fact, evil. There is no rea­son in a civ­i­lized soci­ety why the Deputy Assis­tant Com­mis­sioner of Paper­work should have his own Seal Team Six. As I wrote in the mag­a­zine last year

and this:

Please note that the story says that the Secret Ser­vice acknowl­edged that there was no threat. Then why were they vis­it­ing this per­son and talk­ing about tak­ing his guns away? I have no prob­lem with the Secret Ser­vice fol­low­ing up on a pos­si­ble threat, but this is sim­ply harass­ing polit­i­cal oppo­si­tion – sim­i­lar to the mis­use of the IRS.

peo­ple are going to start con­clud­ing this:

The gov­ern­ment of The United States is not legitimate.

Act accord­ingly.

That’s all he can stands, he can’t stands no more!

If enough peo­ple start think­ing that in our well armed soci­ety, bad things hap­pen. I really don’t think the left sees this dan­ger or if they do per­haps they have decided that an armed para­mil­i­tary IRS etc is the way to solve it.

I sub­mit and sug­gest that the best solu­tion to this is not IRS agents with AK-​15s ready to shoot gui­tar mak­ers who might resist. Per­haps instead Gov­ern­ment might try regain­ing the trust of the peo­ple by act­ing like they work for them rather that rule them.

It’s so crazy it just might work, but I sus­pect there are plenty on the left who won’t care, as long as will­ing dupes do their fight­ing for them

If you’ve read the first three parts of my worries concerning the IRS scandal there is one assumption that might not make sense to you.

The left often portrays the Tea Party as a group of violent gun toting thugs, ready to snap into a multi-shot rage at the drop of a hat. A collection of cowboys. That being the case, why on earth would they not fear to provoke such well armed people with  a violent streak?

The answer is very simple. The left may say all these things about the right and violence, but the leaders who spew this stuff know it simply isn’t true.

They’ve seen the tea party crowds pick up after themselves, they’ve seen the right to life marches bury the capital in people without an arrest. They saw Glenn Beck events take place with little or no incidents.

Even more significantly they’ve seen their own speakers at colleges around the country walk without fear while speakers of the right need massive security to function.

This has gone on for years and years and years without a reaction. The left assumes that as long as they don’t strike first at the right they can do what they wish.  It’s reached the point where the very suggestion that the right would fight back is almost quaint.

This forgets a basic fact about the traditional American Culture that the left have abandoned:  Americans take a long time to reach their breaking point but if you keep prodding them they eventually reach it.  Consider:

There were decades of problems with England before the colonies finally rebelled and even so only a 1/3 of the supported it.

We paid off the Barbary pirates for years before finally deciding Enough!

Impressment went on for many years before War was declared on England

Ten years passed between the Alamo and the Mexican war

The slavery issue boiled for decades before Sumter, Europe fought for 3 years before America jumped into World War I  and if Japan didn’t hit Pearl Harbor FDR would have had a hard time getting the US to declare war on the Nazi’s.

Even in modern times,  the 1st gulf war took months before things started.  Without September 11th there are no wars in Iraq or Afghanistan and even in Iraq it was a very long build up to war and votes in congress before the bombs started falling.

American culture traditionally is like an old Popeye cartoon. It takes hit after hit after hit until finally it exclaims:

Or if you want a more current example one you might understand better. (and current is pretty relative here) consider the Star Trek the Next generation episode: The Most Toys. After kidnapping and imprisonment Data finally gets a chance to escape.

When people read this this

As chairman of the House Homeland Security oversight subcommittee, Duncan (R-S.C.) toured a federal law enforcement facility in late May and noticed agents training with the semi-automatic weapons at a firing range. They identified themselves as IRS, he said.

“When I left there, it’s been bugging me for weeks now, why IRS agents are training with a semi-automatic rifle AR-15, which has stand-off capability,” Duncan told POLITICO. “Are Americans that much of a target that you need that kind of capability?”

and this:

A bureaucracy is bad. A politicized bureaucracy is worse. A paramilitary politicized bureaucracy is nuts. And, in fact, evil. There is no reason in a civilized society why the Deputy Assistant Commissioner of Paperwork should have his own Seal Team Six. As I wrote in the magazine last year

and this:

Please note that the story says that the Secret Service acknowledged that there was no threat. Then why were they visiting this person and talking about taking his guns away? I have no problem with the Secret Service following up on a possible threat, but this is simply harassing political opposition–similar to the misuse of the IRS.

people are going to start concluding this:

The government of The United States is not legitimate.

Act accordingly.

That’s all he can stands, he can’t stands no more!

If enough people start thinking that in our well armed society, bad things happen. I really don’t think the left sees this danger or if they do perhaps they have decided that an armed paramilitary IRS etc is the way to solve it.

I submit and suggest that the best solution to this is not IRS agents with AK-15s ready to shoot guitar makers who might resist. Perhaps instead Government might try regaining the trust of the people by acting like they work for them rather that rule them.

It’s so crazy it just might work, but I suspect there are plenty on the left who won’t care, as long as willing dupes do their fighting for them
