  1. Originally credited to General Patton, so in context it means, “When you have people shooting at you, don’t screw around too long coming up with the perfect solution.”

  2. It means to exploit your enemies mistakes or weaknesses when they present themselves. If you wait till everything is perfect you’ll miss your opportunity to take advantage of them.

  3. The current problem is the rioters are being given a free pass, not charged, not prosecuted, no bail, same day release, etc. But the first patriot to do anything against these communists will be arrested, prosecuted, held without bail, lose his job, his home, his family…. etc. Dissent of the rioters will NOT be tolerated. Hopefully at some point this will change, because if it doesn’t it’s going to get very messy.

    • See, THAT’S the problem. The rioters are everywhere, overwhelming the peace officers. So, if the fourth box IS opened, it has to be everywhere, so the rioters are overwhelmed and the libtards (mis-)running the circus can’t respond with sturmtruppen on a onsie-twosie basis. When the Patriots go, they gotta go BIG.

  4. There’s an expression, “The enemy of the good is the perfect.” Another expression that comes to mind is “He who hesitates is lost.”

    Gen. Joe Johnston was Robert E. Lee’s predecessor as commander of Confederate troops in Northern Virginia. He was wounded at Seven Pines so Jefferson Davis replaced him with Lee. Johnston later served as the Confederate commander in the defense of Atlanta. He was a consummate commander on the defense, anticipating Sherman’s every move as Sherman pressed toward Atlanta. As an offensive commander, however, he was “meh.” Conditions were never right for an attack with Joe. Something was always lacking, and he looked for reasons to wait.

    Porter Alexander, Lee’s artillery commander, wrote in his memoirs about going bird hunting with Johnston and some other Confederate officers (perhaps this was after the war, but I forget.) All through the day, Johnston failed to fire. The birds were always too far away, too close, or Johnston found some other excuse to not fire. At the end of the day, Johnston had not fired one shot.

    Alexander said that, in his opinion, Johnston’s performance that day was a window into his character. Things are never perfect in war, and if one is inclined for them to be so, nothing will ever get done.

    With Johnston–as with Patton–one should choose the right tool for the job.
