Thanks Steven...

Dewey Mason:  Just for your info, the people in Oregon that are occupying are a very few percentage of the Patriots nationwide.  I do have a problem with what is going on there.  Bundy set up a citizens Safety Committee, assuring them that they controlled what would happen there in Oregon.  Then he occupied the property, without notifying the Committee, and has since not included them.  So there really isn't much local support.  The committee has written a letter to Bundy, thanking him, and saying they would carry on the fight locally, and asked that he takes his people and leave peacefully, since there wasn't any thing more for him to achieve. I believe that under the circumstances, he should follow their advice.  You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them drink. 

What's your source for this info?

stated code in 10 USC Article 16. section 46  Title 10 armed forces.

What does this have to do with your comment to Dewey Mason?

The meaning of a militia is for each state to have them in their towns and cities to protect THAT state in case of what ever type of attack on that state, the states formed   a central governance to over see the MILITARY protection of the states, now that the FED"S want all the slices of this cake made of all the states we all wish we had kept our independance and now cant fight back. Does that seem to meet my comments?

Sorry thought you were asking me.

Militias original intent is to protect the people from the government--federal and STATE.  

“A militia when properly formed are in fact the people themselves… and include all men capable of bearing arms. . . To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms… The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle.” – Letters From the Federal Farmer to the Republican, Letter XVIII, January 25, 1788

“(W)hereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them nor does it follow from this, that all promiscuously must go into actual service on every occasion. The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle and when we see many men disposed to practice upon it, whenever they can prevail, no wonder true republicans are for carefully guarding against it.” – Federal Farmer, Anti-Federalist Letter, No.18, The Pennsylvania Gazette, February 20, 1788

If each state like here in Texas to inforce the Convention of States to as this prosses begins ask your Govenor to allow cities and towns to build their Militas for the Govenor to call on when needed.

I agree.

ACCORDING TO OATHKEEPERS THE BUNDY MILITIA IS NOT EVEN A TRUE PATRIOT MILITIA OATHKEEPERS SAYS THERE ARE SEVERAL FED AGITATORS MIXED INTO THAT BUNCH!!! OATHKEEPERS BELIEVES THIS IS A GOVERNMENT SET UP BY THE OBAMA ADMINSTRATION TO STIR UP TROUBLE SO HE WOULD HAVE A REASON TO DECLARE MARTIAL LAW SO HE CAN BEGIN CONFISCATING OUR GUNS!!!

Maybe you should investigate why many Oath Keepers have parted ways with Rhodes...  And become part of other militias.

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
