Interesting isn't it that the libbies not only never learn their policies don't work and never have, they don't see that the monster they've created WILL turn and devour them too. Always. Remember Robespierre!

Or did you mean the Terror, which was the creation of Carnot, who duped Robespierre into believing it was the will of the people—because he needed Robespierre's perceived moral authority to get the people to go along with it?

Do you actually know anything about the French Revolution?

You’re snug in your cabin in the mountains outside of Big Bear, California. Snug, but fearful. They’re searching for a killer near you. A terrifying, heavily armed former cop from Los Angeles who has gone on a killing rampage.

Suddenly you hear gunshots. You part the curtains to look outside ... and there’s the man whose picture you’ve seen countless times on TV over the past few days running toward your house as he returns fire to police officers in pursuit.

Just a few weeks ago you had been considering buying an AR-15 just in case it might be needed to...
