How will your current ride fare when things get sporty?
…Right now the Second Amendment activists in Connecticut should be preparing the battlefield: identifying and recruiting Oathkeepers to provide intelligence (sure some risk to employment, but if done right that is not necessary); developing some Minutemen who can remove the people and weapons that have become targets of confiscation and quickly developing an active form of resistance (think IRA political tactics).
Think of it as a mini Cold War. The next few weeks are crucial…

Edited for PERSEC, the following response was sent by OughtSix to a correspondent who sought his opinion re this Ted Rall screed:
Ted Rall is a hopeless NY fag statist libtard pseudo-intellectual cartoonist who hates America. To Hell with him and all the “nuanced” disinfo, agenda driven conclusions re: Ukraine. Or any other opinions he and his ilk might have.
Here, right here, is where it’s at. Ukraine is here. “Oooooh! Scary Ultranationalists (read: fascists!) might be a problem in Ukraine! Must deligitimize/marginalize them! OoooH!”
Same here. Anyone who believes in limited govt and the Rights of Man predating any sort of governmental arrangement = terrorist/nationalist/racist… in Ukraine, or right here. And Oh! the plight of the poor Russians left behind in the countries ravaged by the oppression of … who? That’s right, the Russians. I know that the present Russian folks still living in Ukraine and other “emancipated” “former” Russian satraps are not, mostly, personally responsible for historic atrocities and enslavement, but one can hardly blame the ethnic Ukrainians for having a long memory of the Holodomor. Fuck Ted Rall and all other mouthpieces for the neo-con machinations of the US State Dept, et al. You know, just like Vietnam?
Please read the linked article, its comments, and the remarks/comments at WRSA:
If the regime goes over the edge in Ct. it’s game on. The mask will fall completely from the Tyrants face, and the gloves will be off on both sides.
It doesn’t matter whether or not you think it’s all “crazy talk.” A whole lot of very dedicated people don’t agree, and they take these matters very seriously. They, and I, do not think we’re going to vote, legislate or “compromise” our way past this. Compromise is what got us here, that being always an incremental loss of Liberty. Legislation by those voted into office “democratically” (both parties) is what got us here. Liberty and rule of law believing folks have been compromising with the unyielding and relentlessly Forward! left/right/progressives for a century, our present plight being the result… A stiff left jab followed by a right double cross! over and over again. Denial of history is no longer an option.
And anyway, the regime thinks that, having elected Obama and gotten away with it and sooo much else, they are within reach of their long cherished dream of the all powerful socialist/fascist state (take your pick… the first is just the means to the second). In what I consider their arrogance and overconfidence, they are letting their true intentions boldly show. I think they are also aware, perhaps dimly, perhaps desperately, that the window is closing fast as the international ponzi debt scheme is collapsing and they need to consolidate power and control right now. (MRAPs for every sheriff’s dept. in the country? Dept of Homeland Gulag buying billions of rounds of .40 cal ammo? Really? Who, exactly, are the terrorists, again? Whose security are they really concerned with?)
I’m not looking for a debate in detail here. First, I don’t think it’s possible to refute much of this as it’s necessarily painted in broad strokes, both for brevity and for effect; second, because it is so manifestly true for anyone looking at the big picture with an open mind; third, because detailed parsing, tit for tat, legalistic usage is mere obfuscation and worse than futile, and because:
The battle lines are clearly drawn, the yawning chasm is unbridgeable, and the cultural schism plain:
Liberty or tyranny. There is no third choice.
Choose honorably, choose morally, choose wisely.
On your map, consider the transecting Interstate highways and rail systems, their origins, the supply classes that move along same, and their destinations.
Destinations, and goods in transit.
…Suddenly, without any warning, Washington no longer seems so much like the center of the universe. Those who inhabit it, who understand status even if they know nothing else, feel the demotion. Now it’s as if people got up this morning determined to understand why the world seems so much bigger and their offices so much smaller…
UPDATE 1835 EST 6 MAR 2014: WM provides a link-and-commentary-rich update that’s worth your time.
Then think hard about how FREEFOR can get more nerds.
Creative people with spines who are not willing to be slaves.
We simply cannot allow a nerd gap, Mr. President.
A modest proposal:
Consider the concept of “enforced secession”, with the test case being an enforced line of demarcation formed by the Champlain and Hudson Valleys, turning west at I-84 and proceeding to the Delaware River, which is followed to its outlet at Delaware Bay.
Everything and everyone east of those lines is special.
Just ask residents there.
So it seems only right to treat that area specially.
This (depending on POV) “Northeastern Special Opportunity Zone”/”NE Exclusion Area”/”Doofustan” would abut the “Mid-Atlantic Special Opportunity Zone” (MASOZ), roughly bounded by the I-276/476 beltway around Philadelphia, all of Bidenstan, and the roughly SW line running from the western bank of the Susquehanna River to Fredericksburg, VA – to include the beltway areas of Baltimore and DC.
Those interested in being more inclusive (and really – who isn’t?) could simply draw the line at US 15 southbound out of Harrisburg, PA to central Virginia, where the demarc would follow US 17 southeast to Fredericksburg. Everything to the east of this line would be the MASOZ.
The special folks inside the Opportunity Zones could indulge their little statist fantasies, and regular folks in Free America could be isolated from the major contagion sources.
Readers Budding community organizers should feel free in comments to propose additional Special Opportunity Zones.

Thanks for your patience.

Reward bad behavior – get more of it.
Punish bad behavior – get less of it.
