For starters, the protest will accomplish nothing productive. Most protester-types on our side of the fence totally lack the necessary training in psychological operations, propaganda, and what the military calls "civil affairs" to do it right. With that said, if any of you protest organizers went through AIT for MOS 37F, 38B, or something similar send me a copy of your DD214 and I will publicly apologize for calling you a fucking idiot. And don't tell me you were an 88M attached to SOCOM under the XVIII Corps., or some nonsense like that.
Second, protests telegraph intent and out you to the OPFOR at the same time. These are things that no professional or competent individual does. Both are a bad thing, and should be avoided.
What makes this protest especially egregious is that there are three events this weekend that actually have the potential to be productive. They are:
- Wyoming Prepper Con - both Saturday and Sunday in Casper, WY. I looked at the schedule, and there is enough offered that there will be something anyone can learn from.
- Hamfest (Amateur Radio Swap Meet) in Wright, WY on Saturday.
- Up In Arms Gun Show, in Casper on Saturday and Sunday.
Or don't, and do the rest of us a favor by being a coal mine canary. Because we need those too.
Seriously, we don't do pansy symbolic protests in this state. This is Wyoming, by God. When shit goes down we grab our guns, saddle up, and fix it.
