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.

get a copy of a documentary called "the fatal attraction of adolf hitler" you may be shocked at the close similarities between obamas rise to power and hitlers rise to power. in the beginning, hitler had the commanding voice, that mesmerized the population, he was dynamic in his speeches, with people fainting, and the worshipping went on for years, and hitler was able to get just about anything he wanted.....then after a few years the real hitler came out...and soon he had a private brown shirted, jack booted army, a secret police, and one of his first rules of order was to confiscate all guns. he socialized the economy, and industry, ignored treaties, and agreements, eliminated the competition...and all jews....its really scary.
The brown shirts and bullying preceded the 'fatal attraction.'
Hitler was well funded by major German industrialists such as Krup - you know the guy who had a room built over the stable because the odors 'inspired' him.
Hitler started by bullying and taking out editors, smashing presses, murdering the disabled, imprisoning objectors and protestors and creating a climate of fear and invincibility.
At least the German media was frightened into submission. Our weasel traitors are bribed....schweinenhunten!
Hitler's dominant influence was not Mussolini who despised him, said he was 'a madman and could not be negotiated with by normal means,' but the MOSLEM Mufti of Palestine who persuaded him to murder the Jews instead of deporting them..
Mussolini was a bully, but he worked with Pius XII to save nearly all of Italy's Jews and knew that if he did not 'ally' with Hitler German troops would destroy Italy in a day.
This nonsense about guns is so stupid!!!! WE HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO HAVE GUNS, SO GET OVER IT....AND WE HAVE EVERY RIGHT; PER OUR OWN DOCUMENTS, TO STAND UP AGAINST OUR GOVERNMENT IF IT FAILS THE PEOPLE, SO THEY OUGHT TO HUSH UP AND HOPE WE DON'T!!

READ THE DOCUMENTS, KNOW THE RIGHTS AND RULES....OBVIOUSLY MOST-- INCLUDING THE GOVERNEMNT DO NOT! GET OVER THE IGNORANT AWE OF OBAMA...THSOE OF YOU THAT HAVE SUCH AS HE IS AN EVIL TYRANT THAT WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET HIS NAME IN THE HISTORY BOOKS THE WAY HE WANTS TO BE REMEMBERED; AS THE ONE THAT TOOK DOWN AMERICA AND IT'S CONSTITUTION!!!! FOR SOCIALISM NOT FREEDOMS!
In the event of some kind of violent uprising I will NEVER go after Americans , only progressives , and they are the LAST ones to claim they are Americans , so that really simplifies matters . OH ! I forgot , muslims too , and OH ! yeaah , what about communists , socialists , fascists , anti-capitalists , ant-Americans . WAIT !! It still isn't that complicated , they are ALL one group we call DEMONRATS . Don't use firearms , baseball bats are much more painful and pro-long the dying , usually considerably .
BUCK,... CAN I USE MY NIKEN MAG-ROLLER !!! IT'S A BATTON LOOKING ROLLER WITH MAGNETS, USED TO ROLL OVER SOMEONE'S BACK FOR PAIN RELIEF. HOWEVER ?? I KEEP IT BEHIND THE SEAT OF MY CAR...JUST IN CASE BECAUSE IT IS NOT TECHNICALLY CLASSIFIED AS A WEAPON,...BUT, WILL, GET-ER-DONE !!
Hey, I'm familiar with Nikken. I have a pillow that if used in a pillow fight it might knock someone out. I also have a necklace that I've got to have a jeweler fix cause one of the links is broken, I think I have insoles too.
If the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and it allows the federal government to be formed and limited in its powers then a piece of legislation which clearly goes beyond that limit is breaking the law. Feinsteins proposal is a crime. It could be construed to be sedition as it weakens our nations ability to defend against foreign enemies. It is a truism of the law that if a proposed piece of legislation is in violation with the superior law, then it is null and void from its inception and it is to be ignored.
Steve,... you / we are considered criminals because we are CONSERVATIVE CONSTITUTIONALISTS... IN THE EYES OF THE LEFT,...THAT ALONE MAKES US THE CRIMINALS.
That is a VERY good comparison! About playing chess with a pigeon,
Edna.... I once had it all in the world of nikken,...lent it all out, never got it back, except my mag-roller...;))
WAKE - UP PEOPLE, before there is nothing left.
