Every one of my contacts with the USCG have been positive. OTOH, I've run accross some Everglades National Park Rangers who were both rude and ignorant. Not exactly jack boots, but just not very nice. I don't think they were that way 30 years ago.
Ranger Randy has acquired machine guns - now he is a member of the Armed and Rangerous.
You might like the latest issue of eco-logic, found at freedom.org. Look for an article called The Morning After The night Before. It is about one of the Armed & Rangerous.
