You are such a conservative junky that you have been here for 12 hours?
Well, I’m sure there are some details that would be interesting to know here..
I for one wouldn’t start a war unless attacked.
Pre-emptive strikes are hard to pull off in court as a rule.
Welcome to FR!
Good Call /johnny
What ya cooking this evening?
I don’t know why but when folks that know how to cook describe their food, mine just magically tastes better (meager as it may be), I’m getting better but I have a long way to go.
12 hours or 12 years, what’s the difference?
I’ve got a member of the Hutaree Militia living right down the road from me.
They were all acquitted and the leader was just elected to Constable in his home town.
Is being a 2nd generation Freeper a thing? Been visiting FR for about 5 years (yes, still a n00b). Decided it was time to put my big boy pants on and sign up and get involved.
Ah...like 11.99 years...?
He testified that he sincerely believed government agents were planning to kill him
Hell, they are planning to kill all of us with the death panels!
“The government is out to get me...”
Looks like he was right.
Diplomacy can be important. God's law does trump man's law. Many government employees and leaders are our enemies, and some of the top leaders are unspeakably anti-American and evil. However, neither fact justifies murder. Those facts so far just justify every imaginable lawful form of resistance to tyranny and evil until such time as eitehr (1) freedom wins, or (2) a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce us under absolute despotism. At that point, it is our right, it is our duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for our future security.
"Well, I put myself here, with my own words, and I feel horrible about that, and I hurt my family, and that's who's really paying, and I feel horrible about that," he said at a hearing in federal court in Anchorage.
"I put a lot of people in fear by the things I said and the crazy stuff that was coming out of my mouth," he said.
Looks like we are hurtling into the age of informants and the government infiltration of all opponents to that 0bama regime.
The whole idea is restriction of free speech and intimidation. 0bama is feeding this frenzy by provoking his opponents and backing them into a corner. 0bama desperately wants a confrontation as a pretext to assume more and more power.
I lurked for a two weeks before I signed up! LOL
So if you are a news comentator of the correct ilk or just some schmuck on twitter you can call for the outright murder of the NRA leaders and all the NRA members. But a guy spuouting off about being hounded by government and doing the same or less about public officials gets his ass hauled off and sent to prison.
I wonder what kind of proof they had to show he actually “plotted” rather than just blew off steam.
Some animals are more equal than others...
Read the article.
Well, according to the article, one of the charges involved "soliciting others to commit murder." Often, that crime is committed in connection with life insurance policies. It's considered a serious offense.
The important question is..
[snide]Where some of the givernment employees his ENEMIES?..
MAybe he’s not a terrorist but a freedom fighter..
even though he is probably not Islamic.. who are all freedom fighters.. [ /snide]
