Welcome to the Party, Pal

I was amused by this article, which discusses politically liberal folks getting into the "Prepper" mode.

Colin Waugh bought a shotgun four weeks before November’s election.
An unapologetic liberal, he was no fan of firearms. He had never owned one before. But Waugh, a 31-year-old from Independence, Missouri, couldn’t shake his fears of a Donald Trump presidency — and all of the chaos it could bring.

Haven't these been the folks who have spent 8 years calling the conservative preppers "lunatics" and "paranoid nut jobs" and other names?

His advice to others on the left fearful of the next four years? “Get ready. Pay attention. Keep your wits about you.” 

We've been saying that for years.  Welcome to the club.  We've got jackets (technically they're parkas, because a jacket won't keep you as warm in the winter).

The signs of change are surely in the air. Groups that cater to gun-toting bleeding hearts — such as the aptly named Liberal Gun Club — say they’ve seen a surge in paid membership since the election. 

Good.  VERY good.  Everyone, left or right, should have the means of self-defense.
