We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Have you ever wondered what all of those extra SUVs are in Presidential and VIP motorcades? The ones with blackened windows, and nobody ever gets in or out?
Wonder no more. They have a 6-barrelled 7.62 mm minigun which can fire over 3000 rounds per minute. The wipers need to be run to remove spent casings when firing forward. The vehicle is armor-plated. This video is from Dillon Aero, who makes this all happen:
Some of us older folks do have "miniguns" to protect ourselves -- at least in Texas. I call them house guns and we are allowed to have them without applying for a carry permit, as long as they remain within the confines of our property. At least, we're allowed to have them until the busybody Dems take our Constitutional rights away. Right now, I'm humbly grateful they haven't yet taken them away, since my subdivision is infested with giant earth-movers and backhoes which are digging up our streets so that it's almost impossible to drive your cars out of your driveway. Said earth-movers etc. are driven by large dark strangers, mostly Hispanic, who can't speak English. But they do understand the word "police." And, if necessary, the muzzle of my Taurus The Judge. Haven't had to use it yet, but it's comforting to know I have it.
You know, I wouldn't be surprised if these guys were illegal aliens, as we used to call them. Houston's insane City Council has designated Houston as a "sanctuary city," so now the people smugglers head straight to the city's welcoming arms. The local NBC affiliate said on the nightly news the other night that Houston had 38,000 illegal alien felons, many of them repeaters.
