Dumb Jocks and Sorority Bitches?

Okay, first off, what Mr. Johnson wrote on the wall of the Target store was "Target is run by dumb jocks and sorority bitches." Which may be perfectly true, for all I know, but can it be construed as a political statement?

Secondly, Johnson was in possession of some kind of unnamed "keys" which apparently had something to do with the man Gwatney's used car premises, so the whole thing may turn out to be over money in the end. That's what almost all American crime is about. Like I said, Americans will do for money in a heartbeat what other people do for principle or spiritual reasons.

However, that said...Gwatney was certainly no loss (I took one look at his photo with that blow-dried bouffant quasi-Elvis hairdo standing up on his nut, and the flashy suit, and being from the South myself I knew right away what we're dealing with here. Guys like that scream for a couple of slugs in the belly.) At least Johnson didn't go berserk in his former place of employment in a more typical Amurrican fashion and kill some innocent working moms or whatever. At least he targeted one of the wealthy men who is actually responsible for making us all live in a toilet, and he inflicted some damage on the enemy.

Johnson himself was killed, but that's to be expected, unfortunately---Americans are nowhere near the point where we can carry out a successful direct action, survive, and successfully escape and evade. We just haven't had enough practice in guerrilla warfare or doing anything other than throwing tantrums, and we haven't learned to think more than ten minutes ahead, which is a skill we are going to have to acquire if there are going to be any of us left in a century's time.

Overall, give Mr. Johnson a C-plus on this one.

It's better to do the right thing for the wrong reason.

One dead rich man in an expensive suit. My heart bleeds.

With all the guns we have in American homes, I'm always amazed that more of us DON'T take justice into our own hands. (Notice I said justice, not the "law." In this country the two are usually mutually exclusive.)
