Too bad y'all only know the myth. __NRA convention, Phoenix AZ, May 2009. Ten's of thousands in attendance. Only one paid to be there. __Yup, the illustrious Mr. Nugent. 40k plus expenses to appear a function he was already duty bound to attend.__Patriot or mercenary? You make the call.__As for me, I've seen enough of this guy to have seen enough of this guy. Enjoy your idol worship.
Don't forget "tea bagging redneck" "domestic terrorist" "right wing extremist" "bitter clinger" and a host of other epithets I wear as a badge of honor.
I think I'm more rattlesnake than watch dog. If I warn you it's right before I strike. "Don't Tread on Me"
IntenseDebate Notification <DIV>Oh, I'm not fearful, just wary. I don't put anything past this bunch. As a gun owner I'm alwaysmindful of how easily my rights can be stolen.As a resultI'm alittle more reserved and responsiblein my actions.I'm also one todefend himself, be it froma baseball bat or apolice baton. When they come for my guns I become an outlaw.Whenthathappensthere's no turning back. As such it needs tobethe resultof their tyranny, not my foolishness.I won't betaking partin any"civil disobedience" for that very reason.Sorry Glenn, I don't leave home without my "American Express" and I don't go where it's prohibited.</DIV> <DIV>
IntenseDebate Notification <DIV>Intimidate? They should be intimidated. They're the subordinates, not us.When thegovernment fears the people there is freedom, but when the people fear the government there is tyranny. If they're not intimidated then they don't appreciate theintended nature of the relationship. Perhaps if we just vote every last one of them out of office they'll come to terms with it. I think we've seen the last of the town hall meetings for a while. The congress critters are likely to scury back to the safety of their ivory tower. I hope they payed attention though. I'd think it unwise for themto try the peoples' patiencemuch further.</DIV> <DIV>
IntenseDebate Notification <DIV>No, they don't. This is just a cheap shot, a lame way to try and discredit those who'd stand in their way. I think worse is coming, especially if there's a largerally in DC on 9-12. History has shown what can happen when those in power perceive a threat rightoutside their ownwindows. That would be a TEA party Obama could not ignore. I worry what his response would be.</DIV> <DIV>
IntenseDebate Notification <DIV>John,</DIV> <DIV> It's good to know folks like you are stillout there.Much of the time I feel like I'm just pissin' in the wind when it comes to congress. But at least I can still cling to a few "F" words like: Faith, Family, Freedom, and of course, Firearms.</DIV> <DIV>
IntenseDebate Notification <DIV>During the depressionWWI vet's marched on Washington to petition foran early payment of what had been promised them for their service. They pitched their tents and protested peacefully. They were our of work with no place else to go. Their families were destitute and they needed help.They were not dealt with by the governmentin a civilized manner. They were attacked anddriven from D.C. with no thought to their welfare. People died.I'm just saying, history has already shown what our government is capable of doing to her own. Stay vigilant.If I were a day's drive away I wouldgo too, but 2,000 miles is a bit of stretch. I'll have to attend a local event.</DIV> <DIV>
Carefull folks. Beware the gauntlet. It's a militant group that occupies the Whitehouse these days. Keep your wits about you and don't let yourselves get drawn into something you can't get away from.
Just as I feared. Groupie central in the cult of personality. Why are people so enamored with celebrities. Isn't this the same brand of idolatry that put Obama in the Whitehouse? The guy's an egomaniac, not a god.
