Skip to comments.Just received a visit from the FBI

A couple of hours ago receive a hard knock on the door. I answered the door and about 7 or 8 agents all flashing badges (claiming to be FBI and/or CIA) rushed me and pushed me against the far wall.
My dog attacked and they would have shot him had I not broken free for a second and covered him by laying him on the floor beneath me.
After things calmed down a bit and I received assurances that nothing would happen to him if I placed him in the bedroom and closed the door.
I did so and they then read me my rights and explained that my opinions expressed on Free Republic were the reason they were there. I had expressed my opinion of what I thought of the current President and the majority in congress and was therefore a potential threat to the government. After what seemed to be hours they came to the conclusion (I hope) that I was merely expressing my opinion and not a leader of a counter revolutionary army - as they saw it.
They searched my apartment for weapons and found 4 (which I have not fired in over a year or more) and they seized them for testing. My dog (Ranger) was not happy with the situation so I had to hold on to him during the search to keep him from being shot.
They also seized my computer and downloaded my entire files system. I suppose they also copied any files erased by normal erasure techniques. They returned the computer as "WAS" (as far as I can tell) but I after careful consideration the past few hours I have concluded that they are monitoring me closely.
I'm not even sure this message will make it through but what else can I do but try?
If (Big IF!) this does make it through, beware. They are watching and may make a visit to your residence and give your the same routine.
It really shook me up and I have trouble keeping my nerves steady and my thoughts straight as I write this message.
Once this gets out (IF THIS GETS OUT) I can pretty much expect their return but this time they probably won't be quite as considerate of myself and my dog who they will probably shoot on sight.
I have packed my truck with essentials but I suspect that there are those that are watching so I may not make it to one of my favorite mountain camping sites.
There I will not have any communications except when I get into town and use WIFI to make any contact.
Good luck and keep your heads down.
They have become serious about enforcing their new powers - and some of us might not make it.
I'll probably be #1 on their list.
Semper Fi and God Bless one and all.

Patience is a virtue.
What happened here?
Using logic, it isn’t possible. He could not have been casually freeping while they were taking down his dog and stuff. Also, if they did this during his 4 hour Freep break today, why would he post hours of casual comments, and then suddenly 5 minutes after a casual comment, post this traumatic event?
All I ever get are visits from Starfleet officers.
Wow! A real-time inverse zot!
You must mean Mermans
>> “And now he is zot.” <<
all you computer are belong to nickleodeon; he is not zotted.
Have no idea.
Fred and Ethyl?
The Feds weren't aware that his parakeet in the basement shares his FreeRepublic account.
“It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.”
Not any more. !!!
His last couple of posts were graphic and rather violent.
That's good. The officer-level guys are too proud to do the rectal exams. It's the Yeoman Rand types you have to watch out for.
Were they flying in a black helicopter?
I’m scheduled for a visit from SG-1 (no, the real SG-1) in 6 weeks and 2 days. At least that’s what my time traveling self told me about a week ago.
>> “How did that happen???” <<
He was telling the truth, or at least his version of the truth.
A bit paranoid I suspect.
