  3. Who was it here that tried to tell me all militias were govt controlled? Let’s be perfectly clear now… all militias were not govt controlled or sponsored.

  4. I don’t recall delegating any powers. It would be a bigger formality than a mortgage, marriage, or permanent power of attorney, right? I’m sure I would have remembered doing that. Who says I did it?

    Excellent history lesson I’m bedded therein, however I feel the actions of fedzilla during the period 1860 forward are more apt for what is to come.

    While the British conducted themselves abhorrently at times it was not a routine practice nor on the scale of Lincoln’s horde. Abe’s deliberate war on the southern civilian population is what is in store for those of us in the the clutches of the death throes of the fedzilla. I agree, Trump is at best a short stay of execution.

  6. “Tennessee militia colonel David Crockett, known for his 1836 stand in defense of the Alamo, also served three terms in the United States Congress between 1827 and 1835. The following excerpt is from an 1884 biography by Edward S. Ellis, “The Life of Colonel David Crockett,” where he took a stand for the rights and responsibilities of the people limiting the roll and privilege of government.
    The Church must agree with the fundamental moral and religious principles expressed by David Crockett and Horatio Bunce. We believe that all charity should be in the hands of the people and no follower of Christ should look to men who call themselves benefactors but exercise authority one over the other in accordance with the directives of Christ.
    From the beginning the desire for benefits that are provided by compelled contribution extracted from your neighbor by force, even by legal means, violates the prohibition to not coveting our neighbor’s goods or anything that is our neighbor’s.”

    In its Entirety Here:

  7. Understand that their enemy had NO air support, no continuous CCTV surveillance, and the weapons available to each side were roughly equal in effectiveness. Be extremely careful against assuming the same is true today, and plan your actions accordingly.

  8. How to stop a tank with a chainsaw:

    In the same vein as mossberg vs remington, this might lead to arguments of husqvarna vs stihl.

  9. So many battlefields to visit in the Eastern states.

  10. Remember, US tactical doctrine says that tanks ALWAYS have Infantry to screen them and accompany. US tanks have an aversion to built up areas, (cities) but they enter them all the time, and always have losses. It’s just too easy to zap a tank with all that cover, even with infantry support. You see tanks without infantry support, anywhere, and you’ve got a free play, like when a quarter back sees an offsides by the other team, and throws a long pass for a touchdown before the whistle. Blind, halt, and destroy. If on foot, attack from the rear, but be aware of, and watch out for, his buddy tank. The best time to attack one is when they stop, or turn a corner, or go into a deep crevice or ditch, and at night. Bleach and ammonia will bring the crew out. Smoke renders them helpless, as long as they’re in it, or it’s in front of them. Think of sticky smoke grenades, where they CAN’T get away from it.

  12. Marching into a gig, slugging it out, just isn’t in my DNA. doing what some dumb ass tells me to do, stopped 7 years ago. Dying for a cause is noble, me dying for their cause is unexceptable.

    I’ll fight. I’ll ,fight my way, Not theirs.

    As a combat engineer, 12B, at Hunter Leggett, in the early,80s we use to charge the hill. I quickly recognized the potential leathality of such foolishness.

    Only place I really payed attention was on the demo range.
