There is absolutely no doubt about that there is an elevated drive to limit the extent of even more of our personal liberties.
As I suspected the Obama Administation like every other new Administration is working rapidly to solidfy the inroads the Administration before it made
towards degrading civil liberties, by using those new laws and powers against the minority that was a majority when those laws and powers were first
introduced. Of course that always delights what was at that time the minority that is now a majority, that saw it as a bad thing when it might work
against them, but a good thing when it works for them.
It's a viscious little game where we are alternatively slashing our own throats while seeking to slash the other guys with a blade that is double
edged and cuts both ways.
I have been a rebel my entire life but I do confess I favor Sherrif Buford Pussard's motto in Walking Tall of 'talk and walk softly and carry a big
Simply put in nature the Rattle Snake is colored to blend in almost completely unseen in his natural habitat. Chances are if you have ever heard a
rattle snakes rattle, it's a split second before you feel the bite.
The rattler doesn't display a sign except caged and living in a zoo, and it wasn't that rattler who put the sign there but the zoo keeper!
Your "Don't tread on me" bumper sticker might be a true statement of your political feelings, in a country where 'technically' we all have a
right to free speech.
What you imagine is a warning, others will in fact see as an invitation and a challenge, or maybe better put a challenging invitation to see if in
fact there is anything at all to your claim that when stepped on you like the rattle snake will react with split second and deadly preciscion as the
deadly pretador you advertise yourself to be.
My best advice is if your not a deadly pretador, or not quick to strike when being attacked, and incapable of delivering the split second lethal
response of a rattler, it's just not a good idea to pretend you are one.
Mafia hoodlums generally don't drive Town Cars with bumper stickers that say "Career Criminal, Loaded Gun without Permit Onboard, 2 Kilos of Illegal
Narcotics in Trunk Catch me if you Can".
There is an excellent chance though despite that lack of advertising or fair warning that if pulled over or encountering someone who has serious
reasons to object with that lifestyle and those things, that he will respond with lethal force.
Walk softly carry a big stick, that's my motto, don't let them see you comming, don't let them see you going, and if you want to pretend you won't
let people tread on you, it's only real when you don't let people tread on you.
This happless, well intentioned, politically motivated, disgusted and disatisfied American as most of us are...ought to be sued...that's right sued
for false advertising.
His bumper sticker should have read "Sheep in Wolf's Clothing I B'aaaaa at the Moon"
People who imagine that such a bumper sticker is a badge of their courage and beliefs who proudly stick it on their vehicle only to then display that
they are a creature of an entirely different nature are simply romantic fools whose good intentions born of real fears only cause other people fears
that they react to in a proactive way.
I have to tell you if I walked out in my yard tomorrow and saw a fresh hole in it with a little sign that says "Home to Rattle Snake" that snakes
got to go, and I will hunt it, until it's fled or dead, because I don't want anything I know to be deadly, on my property, and while smart snakes
and smart humans will generally head in opposite directions they truly can't when one either accidentally or deliberately 'treads' upon the
Battle Flags don't make great bumper stickers when everyone knows there is a very real and potential battle brewing.
Battle Flags are for rallying around in mass in a call to arms to do battle.
We don't send our Special Forces as solo operators into hostile nations and territories in U.S. Army or Navy uniforms, or t-shirts that say 100%
American, we send the wolves in looking like sheep.
Sending in sheep looking like wolves...I think they shuold have kept the guy for 72 hours for lacking conviction of his principals and lacking any
I like most people have some sadistic tendencies, I generally won't pick on others for sport though to indulge them as it's not the most attractive
quality to display as a person. I have to be honest though when someone says "Don't you pick on me", well that's an invitation I can't resist.
We are a society that has completely lost our way because we have completely lost almost every shred of collective and individual common sense.
False Advertising is a violation of Civil Codes!
People if you want to fight something or someone fight a good fight not a stupid fight. People itching for a fight and advertising that they are
itching for a fight, are bound to invite one...I can prove it too, watch the responses I get for this post!
