I'm curious to hear more what your analysis of Q is, Cain.
I've got a coworker that is into it, and feeds me from that bubble.
He convinced me that Trump was aware of it, and was, at the least, playing into it.  After enough time, I became convinced that Trump is actively coordinating with whoever it is.  Beyond that, I reserve judgement.
It seems to me that the confusion over political labels' accelerating changes reveals the fact that a one dimensional model is ridiculous and harmful.

Hahaha.  This is the best of all possible worlds.
Man. I'm feeling so thirsty for an -ism, lately!
Just mentally exhausted from the Shit Going On, and slogging through nuance and a lack of -ism fueled certainty.

It looks so tempting.  I see folks everywhere drinking their curriculum, and dining on channels, and they seem so satisfied...

Was hung mung ecstatic or despondent as he slapped his ass?  I used to be the former, but am currently feeling the latter.

Please advise.

If you want to win, it can't be beyond you.
How have I missed this fellow for so long?!

That could very well be.
And it seems we may get a chance to find out!
I, personally, am not wedded to any camp, except my own self interest.  And the firearms issue is probably one of the matters that I feel I have the most embarrassing bedfellows! :lol:

That is all true.
There is factions.
But dont you think that these groups all funnel their funding and support into the NRA because it is the large singular group that embodies the simple single message?  I agree that there are factions, and that can result in friction when specifics are raised.   Like the subgun crowd getting pissed that the NRA backed the FOPA of '86, while the fudds applauded it. But they still dont cancel membership.

I love that channel!

I certainly know that there is a decent number of gun enthusiasts on this board, some of which are more knowledgable than me.

I don't think I agree on the point of the gun community requiring an organization to keep it from fragmenting, as it is a single message "movement" at its core. I would say that the secondary messages of the NRA, and specific point behind which they have thrown their weight have caused friction in the community before, and the members may grumble and say, "well, as long as the core message is there, I'll still support them as they are the only real game in town"  That's why I think that if they crumble, we would all move to whoever raises that simple banner the highest.

I could be wrong, though.

That's totally possible. I dont know anything about the large money flows. 
But as an inveterate member of the gun nut community, it appears to me that there is widespread agreement that the overall membership and support would flow immediately if the NRA fell.  The organization is very secondary to the meme.

If the NRA disappears, I would think that the money will simply flow into a different organization, such as GOA, giving them the dominant voice in the conversation.
And they (GOA) seem to take a more hardline approach to gun control than the NRA, for example, opposing the NFA.
What is the referenced "time to switch sides" post? Couldn't search it up.
Never heard of that.  Nation states....
I'll have to give that a go.
Junkenstein.  That sounds like the book, Jennifer Government.
A quick, fun read. I recommend.
