The guy's got a pair of stones, is all I can say.
I sincerely fear for this solid citizen's future.
I truly do.
"Federal and state lawmakers have targeted Mr. Simcox for hearings to determine if he has violated any laws in forming the armed militia organization and posting its members on private land to stop illegal aliens, smugglers and drug dealers."
~& that's why I fear for the guy, too.
Don't address the PROBLEM; oh no-no-no...go after THE ONLY PERSON DOING SOMETHING!
Yes, the "Enemy most certainly is within," alright.
Make absolutely no mistake about that.
"The hearings are being sought by Rep.-elect Raul Grijalva, Arizona Democrat; Gov.-elect Janet Napolitano; current Arizona Gov. Jane Hull; and state Rep. Robert Cannell, Yuma Democrat, and are expected to focus on the Tombstone Militia and other civilian militia groups and citizen patrols that have sprung up along Arizona's border with Mexico."
There ya have it; they've clearly stated their intentions.
This poor guy's toast.
"Mr. Simcox challenged federal and state officials to 'uphold the oath of office they took to protect America" from foreign enemies.'"
So where have we all heard that before, huh?
We don't need no stinkin' oath!
In yo' face!
...wheels are *off*, children; all the way off.
Very couragous individuals. I hope they have the support of some of their local officials (like Sheriff, County Commissioners and at least one Judge). That made a HUGE difference at Jarbidge, NV.
We didn't have it at Klamath and so it as a lot more dicey. But enough people flocked to that cause and raised enough clamor that the Federal government backed off and finally did the right thing. Perhaps the same will occur there ... but only if enough of us become involved and raise the clamor IMHO.
