        I think it was Maxes 1st book that spoke about the division between rural life and urban life and the two political distinctions. I saw this long before that when I lived in Austria. Back then I didn’t understand what I was seeing. Now I do. One day that sticks in my mind was when I saw some rural folks walking down the street in Salzburg and they were dressed in traditional Hochdeutche clothing. Very traditional work type clothing. Its was a huge contrast to the people in the city and their way of life and habits. I thought it was absolutely awesome and I wanted to know more! I was looked at like a freak for even asking. They looked upon them as lesser ppl and some sort of vermin bottom crawlers. All the while some (most) of the people I was with ridiculed them and tossed jokes to each other, one trying to out-joke the other making fun of them. Others said nothing but the expressions were clear.. I wondered how they could treat their countryman with such contempt for simply being who they were.. Now I know. We are there now.

        I see this here now in Alaska. Downtown Anchorage has become a stronghold for the filth of Socialism. Its polluting and thorough..I almost went down there last night to counter protest, but what was the point? They lost and thats enough when all is said and done. IMO the line have been drawn regardless of what is ever going to be said by anyone. I see this more and more each year up here and its sad. Just like Colorado use to be a place for the outdoor type, now its just a place where rich white liberals have turned into shit…

        These days it takes longer and longer to break through the ‘frontier’ of idiots to get to real wilderness. Each year I see more and more ppl in the one mile zone (figuratively speaking) where they pretend to be hard Alaskan riding on the coattails of real men that settled this wild place before them, all the while staying in cell service range and wearing the latest and greatest lightweight REI designer bullshit and staying in their collective commie herds….

        These days when they see me come from the wilderness, alone, kitted out and carrying weapons, smelling and dirty, i get looks, comments and sneers. Recently on a couple instances Ive even had verbal bait tossed at me to provoke arguments. Year after year, more and more of these ppl are the ones disappearing or attacked by bear because just like these Lefty protesters in the video, they just do not get it.. And they wont get it until the hate they bred come to their rich white neighborhoods to claim the false right of retribution.. Then they will have something real to cry over..

          Yea when I was much younger and dumber. ;-)

          Ready, but truly not looking for a fight.

          Now I’ll wait until no other acceptable option is available.

              Also, by protester i don’t mean physically violent.. Protesting to me just means speaking your mind..

                NEVER underestimate the stupidity of a human….and even more so, a mob.

                Having been in EMS since age 17, I learned quickly the destructive forces of “waves of humanity”. The 1st thing drilled into us at that time was “is the scene safe?” If not, no-go, didn’t matter what. The 1st rule in rescue is “DON’T BECOME A VICTIM”

                Side note – our friends in Anchorage told us of the downtown Catholic church priest being robbed during Mass (2015 or 14??).

                  The people that are protesting are ruled by their emotions.

                  What differentiates us from them is our capacity for rationional though and self control.

                    That rings a bell… Anchorage has turned into the wild west lately and there’s so much going on most never makes the news..
