guilty as charged

” (Reuters) – Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday” …
“Routine encounters with police can turn violent “at the drop of a hat,” said Stuart McArthur, deputy assistant director in the FBI’s counterterrorism division.”

Well, dang, anyone getting their news from non-mainstream-media sources already knows all that. Far too many government employees are willing to employ force, even lethal force, at the drop of the hat. The President of the United States explicitly authorizes it with no just cause required.

The FBI list includes me many times over. I finally acknowledged that fact and joined facebook so I could see what my kids and some friends are up to. I had some delusion that I wasn’t on their radar. Pshaw!

Sorry to inform you, but if you have enjoyed any of my posts, they probably find you in contempt of slavery as well.

I love the Mae West story where some judge wearing a robe during the middle of the day, and seated in a high chair peered down and asked her, “Are you showing contempt for my court?” To which she replied, “I’m doing my best not to show it, your honor.”

Maybe we need to give up trying to not show it.

The more radical they get, the harder it is to accept the abuse and still live within an honorable skin.

Perhaps standing up for our humanity will impress the enforcers and get them to back away from their anti-social behaviors. Well, not real likely, but it COULD happen, dontcha think?

More likely their aggressive, even lethal over-reaction to your lack of “proper” bowing and scraping will offend other observers and add to the litany of totalitarian transgressions they are holding in their head. One of them will finally inspire resistance in them too. Maybe one day the resistors will complete the circuit.
