Most buildings in the US can be reduced to rubble with nothing more than a screwdriver and an Alabama speed-wrench.

All right - I give up. What’s an Alabama speed-wrench?

I was just preparing to say... What handgun.

I'm with you. The handgun is for use only if the rifle ammo is depleted, or CQB is in order. It is amazing the firepower in the hands of the American citizenry, as in former military and military-type rifles. Between M1 Garands, M1As (civilian M14s), 30 carbines, and AR-15s, just to name a few, us "deerhunters" would pose a formidable threat to any invasion (foreign or domestic). I knew someone who had a Remington 7400 semi-auto "deer rifle" in 30-06, and with 30 round mags available, it made the M1 Garand look like a piker.

The May 1997 Report of the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR), prescribed a total fleet of 187 bombers (95 B-1, 21 B-2, and 71 B-52). Since the QDR, two B-1s had been lost in peacetime accidents. However, the Report of the Panel to Review Long-Range Air Power (LRAP) concluded the existing bomber fleet cannot be sustained through the expected life of the air frames and that additional aircraft will eventually be required. To address this issue, the Air Force will add five additional B-52 attrition reserve aircraft, bringing the B-52 total from 71 to 76 for a total bomber force of 190. The B-52 fleet will remain the same with 44 combat-coded aircraft.

Not enough BUFFS left to mount a good run even during VN.

i recently watche the movie “Defiance” with Daniel Craig about Russian Jews being hunted down and executed by the Germans during WW2.

And it makes me wonder if thats what America will become, families being hunted down for profit. Or targeted for refusals to follow pogroms, lets just theorize a possible scenario that any children missing from school on the 8th is reported to a data base and those families are now being given a red flag of dissension?

There will be the day.....

When The Cattle used the Prod against the Rancher

We America must not be herded as cattle, we must stampede now or we will become next weeks dinner.

I’ve found suggestions it’s what’s known to most of us as a “Crescent wrench”.

All right - I give up. What’s an Alabama speed-wrench?..................................... ............................................. An adjustable jaw open end wrench, sometimes also called a cresent wrench. Almost as handy as a pair of dikes. (Another valuable resistance tool).

I kinda think that we Loyal Americans are the can do an go to people.
I live in farm country and I know if there are plenty of people here that are willing to protect the people they love.
We can and will defeat any usurper of our freedoms.
The people I know here don’t own just one rifle or pistol. They own many. As far as ammo is concerned and the mneans to make more. I think around here we are prepared for those contigencies.

“We remain, as a British officer had reason to complain at the start of our Revolution, “a people numerous and armed.””

Had to LOL at this one. Ouch. Poor chap.

Much more numerous and much better armed than in 1776, but is the will to fight there? Will we defend our freedom, sovereignty and honor?

The will to fight who?

Who is the enemy? Someone who won over 50% of the vote, or the people who voted for him?

He is my ideological enemy, but not my military enemy... yet.

When they disband Congress, cancel elections, declare some0ne “President for Life” you can get back to me and my will to fight.

Right now I fight by raising money, voting, protesting, registration drives, etc.

But as a lifelong country boy and military veteran, tyranny has much to fear from me.

Tyranny isn't here yet.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. —

Ramming an $800 billion dollar unread by congress “stimulus” plan through isn’t tyrrany? Taking over 1/7th of the economy isn’t? Public ownership of GM, Chrysler, AIG, etc. isn’t? A tax for a mythical “climate change” isn’t? Flag@WhiteHouse.gov isn’t fascism? Pay caps and firing GM’s CEO isn’t dictatorship? A “Civilian National Security Force” just as powerful and well-funded as the U.S. military isn’t? Not prosecuting voter intimidation by the Black Panthers isn’t? Communists as advisors to the president isn’t?

Sorry, but the people want most that crap, and that crap impinges upon, but has not been found to violate our Constitution. They are still working within the system and still have popular support.

But I guess you answered my question.

But your “enemy” is still a majority of Americans.

Do you want to shoot them, or convince them of the error of their ways?

An accounting is coming in 2010, and again in 2012. They will be shown the error of their ways at the ballot box.

As George Clinton said... “You don't need the bullet when you got the ballot.”

We had our bloody revolution, it was a success; now we go about figuring what we want to do with our permanent freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution and granted to us by God. Awhile ago the mood was that we should expand the power of government. Now the pendulum is swinging back the other way.

We win at the ballot box, not the ammunition box.
