I don’t want to be a jerk, but… when you work for the bad guy, and die due to your “job”, I can’t feel too sorry for you or the family you foolishly sold up the river.
You took a “job” violating people–you try to call it “protecting freedom”, haha–in exchange for stolen money, doing sometimes dangerous/foolish things. Then you want everyone to pretend it’s a tragedy when the chickens come home to roost? Sorry.
Cannon Air Force Base is a tyrant to the area. I have written about it before.
The air base personnel feel unwanted here, and are mostly bitter about being stationed here in this “Godforsaken” boring and unappealing region which lacks bright lights, culture, and night life, but this area bends over backward to worship those welfare junkies, and gives the base whatever it demands. I never see anything less than fawning worship from anyone or any local business (“military discounts, military appreciation!”), but it’s never enough for them. I may be the only local who actually dares to admit that the air base is bad for the area, besides being wrong and a net negative for American liberty.
A few years ago, the base “officials” decided that some county road was a security problem and “asked” the county commissioners to close it. Never mind that local farmers used and needed the road. Nope, the US military was scared of Americans using a road, and claimed it couldn’t protect the air base unless the road was closed (Wow, aren’t they powerful! LOL)–and made veiled threats that if the community didn’t give in to the demands, they might close the base to punish the community. They are bullies.
They dictate the height of windmills and wind generators because they want to fly low while they trespass over farms and ranches. They claim they only “advise” the local puppeticians on the height of structures, but knowing how they manage to get their way… Bullies and tyrants.
So, no, I will NOT be joining in any candlelight vigil.
