Happy 4th, I guess

Another anniversary of the declaration of independence. We’ve made some progress on the freedom front in the last week or two, with court cases like WV v EPA  and NY v Bruen.

But the world is still upside down, vax mandates are still killing people, woke is corrupting everything it touches, conservatives can’t keep Guido “Vivian” VanCreeper out of the girls locker room or from reading to the kids at Drag Queen story hour where the word of the day is “grooming.” Taxes are up, inflation is up, gas is up, the economy is imploding, shortages are everywhere, deflation is queued up to whipsaw things in a few months, and the Biden admin and his handlers are hell-bent on starting WWIII (nuclear edition) in UKR, while importing the entire 3rd world here to collect welfare bennies.

Other nations are spiraling the drain. Sharing vax memes on social media can get your midwife license pulled in Australia, for example. Totalitarianism is not creeping, it’s at full charge in many places.

As one person commented at Gab, “the 4th day of the 7th month just doesn’t hit any more. Feels more like a mom who invites everyone over to celebrate the birthday of her dead child.

Yeah. Kind’a like that.

There are many specific things to be seriously bummed about. World, hell, handbasket, some assembly required. On the flip side, there are only vague and shadowy rumors of what might be going well in the dim shadows of the clandestine war to take the country back from the usurpers and cons and compromised and traitorous.

In spite of all that, I’m actually rather hopeful that a whole lot of things will sort themselves out. Things didn’t look too rosy on December 8th, 1941, either. There is actually a lot of good in the world, and a lot of good people, people are slowly waking up to some of the evils of the world that have been hidden and festering for a long time. The country and the world has a rocky few years ahead. Maybe a rough few decades. But hard times make strong men. Times have been soft here for generations. We’ll muddle through.

Well. Happy 4th.

That was (relatively) fast

The Supreme court has directed district courts to reconsider some cases in light of the Bruen decision.
SUPREME COURT REVERSES LOWER COURT RULINGS ON MAG BAN, “ASSAULT WEAPONS” BAN, CARRY BAN

One of these, the 9th Circuit item, will directly affect the WA state mag limit law. They said:

Petition GRANTED. Judgment VACATED and case REMANDED for further consideration in light of New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen, 597 U. S. ___ (2022).

It should be a pretty much immediate “that law isn’t legal, it’s struck down” this week. I think Joe’s take is more realistic, quote:

My prediction:

  1. They will initially say it doesn’t apply to them because the case remanded was in California and Washington is “different”.
  2. They should be prosecuted, but nothing will happen in that direction.
  3. SAF’s lawsuit will have to go to the judge which will respond to a petition for summary judgement.
  4. The judge will delay because the 9th Circuit is taking their time responding to reality.
  5. The 9th Circuit will delay at least a few months.
  6. The Washington case will be resolved a month or more after the 9th decides.

So… we will be deprived of our rights until the end of the year or maybe the first quarter of 2023. And none of the criminals who deprived us of our rights will even be considered for prosecution.

End quote.

Sadly, he’s likely correct. Maybe it can be made a winning issue in the election.
