Recently @SteveRogers told me he had seen some entertainment that he described as a "fever dream."
It seems the script for the fever dream has been on a DoD website all along, and it's Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano's master's thesis. He feared the civilian left is going to take a Hitler-like command of the military. I'm not reading 65 pages of what is certainly some unhinged stuff, though I suppose we all should in order to know what kind of people want to take their state's choice of electors away from them. Other undemocratic actions Mastriano has in mind: making everyone in the state re-register in order to vote and decertifying voting machines in counties he thinks are "fraudulent." I wonder which counties he will decide that about.
While I'm not into prison for drug offenses and I'd prefer community solutions for non-violent crimes, I'm not a complete prison abolitionist. I'm good with all of these people who committed sedition and insurrection on January 6th in prison. We don't do violent coups here, thanks. No non-violent ones either. He shouldn't get any ideas about just stealing the vote.

After that recently mustered Airman went on a violent murdering spree in a Texas Black church a few years ago, I begged my congressman, Chris Stewart who's a proud Air Force veteran, to do something about the obvious problem in our military, but obviously he ignored his constituent's concern because it didn't align with his.
