The fox gets into the chicken coop and kills them all.


Not always.

A fox in a henhouse got way more than it bargained for when a group of killer chickens turned the tables on their traditional foe and pecked it to death.

One chicken, one fox, chicken is what's for dinner.

Five chickens, one fox, probably same deal.

But at some point -- some number of chickens, if they decide they're not going to be what's for dinner by letting the fox have at 'em one at a time -- the fox loses despite having vastly superior weaponry, size and strength to any individual or small number of chickens.

Now contemplate how this might apply to US Citizens getting financially gang-banged by politicians and the medical industry, any number of other outrages perpetrated by the "mavens of industry" whether in the tech space or otherwise, our politicians letting illegal invaders overrun our nation and its finances or for that matter the people in Britain about to get gang-banged by a handful of people in Parliament vis-a-vis their vote to get the He-double-matchsticks out of the EU......

Sometimes the sheep also do the right thing, just like the chickens.

So proud of our French Chicken (these are the ones our Yellow vests eat) :-)

Still the journalist has some issues with geography...he places this event in northeast France (under the picture)...while Brittany is in western (or north west at worst) France

The book "Unintended Consequences" comes to mind.

Weve tried the Soap Box, They censored that.
Weve tried the Ballot Box, They stuffed that.
Weve tried the Jury Box, They tamper with that.
All we have left is the Cartridge box.

I had a cat who was eyeing up my chickens change her mind when she looked back and saw 5 or 6 following her...

I've heard it said that it can be as few as 3% of the people who are organized and hell can start to break lose. The only question is who starts it? AOC and her ilk and we're screwed. Militarized conservatives? Maybe not as bad.

The Bracken novels might end up being moved to the documentary shelf yet...

For anyone who hasn't read them read the Enemies foreign and domestic trilogy. It's scary realistic...

Cobra: Less than 10% of the people in the nation wanted prohibition enacted.

And they succeeded.

It's justifiably immoral to deal morally with an immoral entity.

whether you liked the movie or not this scene kind of applies here.

There are two ways to be rich: One is by acquiring much, and the other is by desiring little.

"or for that matter the people in Britain"

Yeeeeep. People here are consistently polling as three things: 'Brexit means Brexit, no deal', 'May must go', and 'we are very, VERY angry right now'.

May's playing in a pit of vipers, and I don't mean the EU ****ers. This might not be the final straw, I suspect that'll be in a couple of years if that socialist scumbag Corbin gets into power (I.E. too late for peaceful protest of make a difference), but we'll see.

Right now, people still have too much to lose. And to be frank, if knowledge of Rotheram and similar issues hasn't awoken our people into a frothing 'destroy the government' rage... probably nothing will.
