This week's poll from the Lester & Charlie Institute of Forward Thinking:
Gun sales have spiked since Obama's re-election. Petitions for secession have appeared in all 50 states. Sarah Palin is tweeting like crazy. Citizens with big guns are angry and they're itching for a fight. Is your government ready?
You'll be glad to know it is!
See, a "thought exercise" described in an article published by the non-profit Small Wars Journal (co-written by a retired Army colonel and a Civil War historian) tries to figure out what the federal government should do if, say, the frustrated Tea Party gets a little too caffeinated and forgets that their muskets and tricorne hats are supposed to be props.
What really scares the authors is the possibility that an armed teabagging rebellion wouldn't stand a chance of being dunked by local law enforcement -- because the locals would be too sympathetic to the rebels. Yes, it may sound paranoid. But it turns out that the U.S. Army's operating concept for 2016 to 2028 considers a threat by "radical U.S. citizens operating domestically and abroad" to be highly likely.
Conservatives were outraged that anyone was even considering such a scenario. The Washington Times called it "cartoonish" and "farcical."
We're not so sure. After all, just two years ago in her bid for the U.S. Senate, Nevada Republican Sharron Angle threatened that her criminally insane supporters would resort to "Second Amendment remedies" if the GOP didn't get its way. True, she lost. But not without getting 45 percent of the vote. And we're pretty sure that her 45 percent own a lot of guns.

Funny. Yet the guncrazed excuse for the 2nd Amendment is that Americans require these weapons in the event that their government gets overbearing and dictatorial. I'm surprised they've waited this long.
I say, follow the "Gullible Conservatives" with a camera and get them on film at the store with their food stamp card, or the doctor with there medicaid card, at the tax office putting in for a waiver on their property taxes, turning in the application for a Pell Grant, and walking into the Plan Parenthood Clinic.
here are a few more suggestions for how to stop the impending crush of zombiebaggerz:
- substitute krazy glue for their denture adhesives
- slash the tires on their motorized carts
- offer a huge 2 day sale at Walmart
- substitute valium for.....their other blue pill
- show a weekend marathon of "24"
- tell them the battle plans are online, but they need a secure wi-fi connection AND a password for access
but perhaps the easiest way to quell a TP uprising would be to tell them that General Mitt Romney will be leading their troops...
