Aim Small, Miss Small

Nota bene: At no point did this guy vote his way out of his problems.

Neither will you.

You can take that information to heart, and profit by this example.
But whether you do or not, your moment is coming. You can follow Marquess of Queensbury Rules, and be the guy roped to the back of the wagon.

Or you can learn how to aim small, miss small, and solve that guy's problem.

What's coming is going to be a bloodbath. That means you're going to get bloody. All other options have been and are being circumscribed. Slow learners will discover that to their peril, and far too late. If you are a slow learner, you may be left with only the option of resolving to taste bad, once you see them release the lions. Don't be That Guy. It only ends well for the lions.

What's coming always comes down to the same things:

Military Intelligence.
Training and Operations.

True for the three insurgents in the video.
True for the 101st Airborne at Bastogne.
True for you, and whatever little band of merry men amongst whom you may find yourself.

Pay attention if you want a similar 21-0 tally when you play.

Zero F**ks Will Be Given.
If you're not ready, whose fault is that?
Now? Then? Always??

Best wrap your head around the idea that something awful is coming, and prepare yourself and yours accordingly.

Learn to thrive on Awful, and deal out Misery.

Ignore the delusional, on your side and their side.
Anybody talking seriously about "We're gonna get 'em in the 20XX elections..." is, by definition, delusional. Sorry, but that reality cannot be avoided. They are nothing but white noise at this point, and a hindrance to clear thinking and action. If not captured assets and active disinformation. Either way, tune them out. They're nothing but a time-suck.

Get ready for what's coming.
Like your life depends on it.
Because it does.

"Lord, make me fast and accurate."

Aesop, something I was introduced to recently was Sisu, a Finnish word which defies an English description. The closest the author (who was Finnish) could explain, it was a sort of "Stubborn Determination" or "Grit". The example used - perhaps relevant to your post - was that of The Winter War (1939-1940) between Finland and The then Soviet Union.

Now that I think about it, I should probably read up on that a little more...

'Marquis of Queensbury Rules'? What's this 'rules' business?

There are only two (2) rules. What you can do to the enemy, and what you can keep the enemy from doing to you.

If you've missed any number of alleged right-of-center pundits opining that "we must color inside the lines, and win this thing back fair and square next time around" you haven't been watching events.

CPL I like the video will look the movie up. Notice his partner was having to load his mags for him. Get them while their cheap, plentiful and available.

Thank you again for the reminder Aesop.

Bear Claw Chris, the movie is quite enjoyable. My especial favorite was the character which was loosely based on the Marquis De Lafayette: "If I die, I will die well dressed".

The same system that got us into this problem will *not* get us out of this problem.
