Joe Stack flew a plane into an IRS building in Austin, Texas today. Before that he set his house on fire and posted a manifesto on his website. It was directed at the government.
As I’ve said before, there is a lot of anger out there. This guy was a lefty (based on his Bush hatred and dislike of capitalism), but there are angry people on the right as well. There’s a good chance something more severe than this will happen this year and the government will use it as an excuse to clamp down on the public. Hopefully that won’t happen.
But the fact is the administrations constantly lying about the situation we’re in is going to enrage more and more citizens. The MSM keeps playing along so far. The latest job numbers are once again called “surprising job loss” which is what they say every time. At some point it shouldn’t be surprising when it happens every time. And it’s happening because this president is doing everything wrong. And at some point the public is going to revolt.
These violent incidents are just early warning signs. If we had sane politicians, they might actually listen to the people and stop the madness, but no.
I really hope things don’t get much worse, but I don’t have any faith in the current collection of clowns in Washington. Until there is real change, we’re likely to see a lot more of this stuff.
