    The "out of my cold, dead hands" crowd seems to be alive and well in America.

    A common theme from the deluge of email I got over "THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS ALREADY DEAD," was a variation of, "Well, you just wait and see. When they push us too far, America’s 80 million gun owners and former military men will step up to the plate and take care of some business."

    My response to that is, "Oh really? And just when would that be?" What outlandish government intrusion will it take before the sleeping masses wake up and realize that our country has been stolen from us? Are we waiting for an M1 tank to come driving up our street before we will get off our rear ends? Will it take bombs going off in our neighborhoods in order for us to realize that something is terribly wrong with this once great republic?

    Be assured, the occupation forces that have seized power in Washington may be ruthless, but they are certainly not stupid. Why should they use anything as messy as tanks to enslave us when limos work better?

    They figured out that we will commit our full 100% obedience to their madness – the wars, the exploding budgets and deficits, the abortions, the fake money, the income confiscations, the tyrannical courts, the oppressive regulations, the 100,000 armed federal police, the snooping into nearly every facet of our lives - as long as the bribery continues to flow in the form of jobs, cars, sports, houses, vacations, toys, booze, porn and cable TV. It’s the best slavery money can buy!

    Tanks in our streets? Who needs them? They sent limos up to our doorsteps and we climbed right in – grabbing up the bribes, paid for with our own money! Bombs blowing up our neighborhoods? Heck no! They've got us standing in line begging them for permission to tie the knot of our own noose!

    Many are obviously clinging to the false hope that there is some government absurdity yet to occur that will get the "80 million gun owners" riled up enough to fight back. However, that does not appear to be very likely. We have moved the line in the sand so many times our occupiers just laugh at us.

    A short list of the government crimes we have ignored:

    Can you believe it? poncho is right.

    I got stopped for speeding this past Saturday, 63 in a 45 mph zone. And that jack booted State Trooper had the unmitigated gall to give me a warning ticket. He even wanted to see my drivers license, registration, and proof of insurance.

    Talk about snooping, that is really snooping, that is BIG TIME SNOOPING! [Actually I don't know whether or not he had boots on or not {too busy hiding stuff}, or whether they were jack but I wanted to carry on the theme of the OP. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    First They Came for the Jews

    First they came for the Jews
    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for the Communists
    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a Communist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists
    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for me
    and there was no one left
    to speak out for me.

    You mean the Bush administration is coming for the Jews??? No? Ok, then surely they have concentration camps full of communists, with rail cars bringing fresh loads of them daily. No? Well heck, not much of a fascist regime. They are going to have to get busy! Bush only has three more years to go you know.

    This David Browlow, is a bit over the edge or perhaps WAY over the edge.

    The "Driver's license thing to drive a car" is a real hoot! I really feel violated. From now on, I'm going to lie about my weight on my drivers license (oh wait, I already do that)
