Many years ago, when I was young, the neighborhood kids would gather together and play sandlot baseball. We would start by choosing sides....you know who would go first and who would be chosen last. Same thing is happening today...although the teams are different. The effect is still the same.
I snapped this image on the Bronx Queens Expressway in NYC last week
and then this article from another blog.

The Sides Are Threefold
1. The government and the Progressive/Socialists
2. The Patriot citizenry who oppose the above group
3. The vast masses of uninformed. Can be referred to as Sheeple or the DGI's (do not get it)I personally dont care for these terms, as some in my own family are firmly ensconced here. I think about this every day.
There will come a time when you will have to choose. Even though you think this might be a duh kind of a statement, think about how many people you come in to contact with every day that dont fit into category 1 or 2.
Those folks are easy to identify. Just ask them about anything political, or anything related to our nation...and you'll get some clues. Now that being said, dont think that a conservative or Pro 2A comment will put them in one camp or another. The mere threat by the Gov folks will cower many into their camp...whether they like it or not.
I would think that coming from one camp to another would cause a degree of distrust, due to the possibility of spying or collaborating.
Door to door contact by those "governing" folks that buy into their plan, will give the Gov plenty of 2am nuts to butts knock knock leads.
Two Stories Worth Reading
Boston Reaction Creates More Fear
The act of terror in Boston reopened wounds in the American psyche. Unlike the 9/11 attacks, however, when we almost immediately knew the culprits, there was nothing but rampant speculation in the media, with each network competing to get a more spectacular — and increasingly irresponsible — angle on the bomber’s identity.
The result was less coverage about the victims and more fear-inducing “analysis,” creating jitters in an already skittish public. And that is anything but helpful.
Honest to God, this was the opening paragraph of an L.A. Times article:
“In response to the bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, the Los Angeles police Department said there would be an increased security presence at and around Dodger Stadium on Monday night.”
Good news for all the boys in blue fans. Because clearly Dodger Stadium ranked No. 1 as the follow-up target for a mad bomber 3,000 miles away.
Americans Take Terrorism in Stride
Monday, 29 Apr 2013 09:34 AM
The news from Boston over the past couple of weeks has been the stuff of nightmares.
Homemade bombs killing and injuring innocent people at a high-profile public event were followed by a massive manhunt. People in the surrounding suburbs were ordered to stay inside, businesses closed, and SWAT teams overwhelmed a typically quiet community. The Boston police commissioner warned everyone: "We believe this is a terrorist. We believe this is a man that's come here to kill people."
When it was over, two out of three voters believed the bombing suspects received support, encouragement, and training from terrorist organizations.
Make no mistake about it. The day is coming, maybe not for a year or two, but as surely as the sun rises, there will come a day when everything has changed. Never to return to an Andy Of Mayberry type of simplicity.
That day will catch many completely by surprise. For the Gov and the Patriot it wont be a surprise, just a turning of the page to the next chapter.
