I remember Wildcat. He and I butted heads about guns back in the day.

He's infinitely worse than he was after ten years in an echo chamber.

You just know he's itching to pull his concealed gun and start pulling the trigger.

That doesn't particularly surprise me. He was always on that trajectory. Unlike people like Ranb, RenaissanceBiker and even Quad4_72 whom I saw as halfway reasonable gun owners. I disagreed with them on a lot of things, but they were amenable to reason and relatively polite.

Funny about the rainbow family...

It began as an anarchist event, open to anyone, that was held annually in a National Forest. These gatherings often numbered as high as 20,000 hippy stoner types. Afaik, they are still happening. They began shortly after the Woodstock festival. Lots of the participants made it a lifestyle; beyond the 2 week camping event that centered on the 4th of July. Back then, the "rainbow" didn't imply "gay". I went to a few of them, early on. They seemed less gay than a normal cross section of Americans...possibly because of the rough accommodations. I may have been mistaken about this. If anything, the focus was more about LSD than any other single factor.

In my day, there were 'freaks' and 'straights. "Freak" meant someone with long hair that had tripped. Straights looked straight. It had no sexual preference connotations. The queers co-opted the rainbow for their own. The "freaks", by default, were suddenly lumped with the conservative 'straights'...as long as either were hetero sexual.

Now that I'm an old white guy, my sexuality and drug use have become irrelevant. I do enjoy a rainbow, however. Who doesn't? It has no sexual connotation, any more than the northern lights do.

(Wish we had rainbow lorakeets here.)
