I was dully aware when I put up my last post that I was kind of violating my New Year's resolution to accentuate the positive and not give in to fear-mongering. I mean, it's important to call attention to the things that are wrong, but only in so far as we have to do this to make them right. You can't fix a problem if you deny that it exists. I don't know how many people realize that the DHS recently bought millions and millions of hollow-point bullets, but it does kind of seem to be fear-mongering, doesn't it? And fear-mongering for the sake of fear-mongering is absolutely useless, even though misery loves company. Yeah, okay, be prepared but don't let fear take control of your life. Sometimes I have trouble with that. So anyway, here's a positive video to kind of counter-act that last bit of negativity. I do believe we're on some kind of a threshold in this respect as well. Hat tip to Zen Gardener.
