I agree with you on this, however, it's pretty hard to work for someone that doesn't have a sweet clue about what's going on.. (i.e. most people)

Rage.

In all due respect, the title of this thread is misleading and shameful. the bill supposedly says unauthorized "militia"... militia stems from military. military means of or pertaining to armed forces. your right to peaceably assemble can never be taken from you.

it would be beneficial to everyone to stop putting your creative thought into such scary ideas. whatever is going on behind the scenes to crack down on the people, it won't succeed. just stay positive and peaceful people. that's the only way to set yourself free anyway.

sorry, I don't want these people "saving" anything. A bunch of individuals who walk around with posters and signs with bad spelling and grammar screaming about how the government is evil. And believe anything Fox News tells them. Nope, sorry, these a-holes can find someone else to save because I will not associate myself with them.

Sad, if McCain were to be president, these same people would be home, eating their hamburgers and drinking their beer, satisfied as ever that a Democrat did not enter office.

Now reality hit them and they can't help the fact but be bitter immature sore losers.



Tarnation, but you all sound the same. you and every other democrat minded fool is falling prey to the two party bickering. this was never about left and right. its about right and wrong. im one of the majority i think when i say we havnt had a real man be president since Mr. Kennedy, and im apalled to hear when people like you stop protesting your government when it changes only the colors of tyranny. go back to your armchair and let the real patriots handle the liberty KTHX.


#1 I'm not a Democrat, but thanks

#2 No it's about Right and Left. These people are bitter individuals.
#3 Where are the patriots? Only ones I see are the ones who realize that a bunch of tea party protesters are racist, ignorant and just plain moronic brainwashed folks. Stop watching your News and actually think for yourself.

Also...

Tell me...what are you protesting for? What freedom have you lost so far? Just curious. Looks like freedom of speech isn't one of the many "lost liberties." You're not being drafted into senseless war. Oh yeah, I forgot, Glenn Beck is telling you to be afraid of the government. Sad.

When will these UNEDUCATED ILL MINDED DOUCHEBAGS realize that they are being lied to by the media they trust so much? Probably never. You can't convince the insane of anything, especially when they can't spell Socialist on posters when they protest the government for something THEY don't even know about.

These folks want a so called revolution. They won't do anything to start one though, they'll just bicker until someone THEY like is in office. Then they'll be in their own little happy worlds. Sorry but that's actually how this is functioning. Always has been and always will.

Star and Flag kozmo!!


Great find....

I haven't really read through it as thoroughly as I should, but the term "unauthorized militia" seems to be inherently contradictory.

And I HAD to comment on it.

In my humble opinion, it is kind of like "Peacekeeper Missile", "Military Intelligence" (that was a joke any military men out there), "Pre-order", "Pre-recorded", etc...

This is about as Orwellian doublethink as it can get.

Thank you for posting the Constitutional definition of a militia, WWJFKD.

I didn't think when I posted my previous comment that anyone would actually believe that a militia had to be authorized, but that is what I get for not reading the entire thread before I post.

Great research.

what ever happened to the days when the "government" actually obeyed the constitution and the bill of rights. im only 23 and i miss the days before i was born. when there was a sense of pride when you wave an american flag. dont get me wrong, i love america. I just dont like the government with the way they are running things.
damn it, america! make me proud again!

Sorry lil brother, I'm 31 and I strongly believe my generation(70s' babies) were the LAST to see anything proud in america, we were born in time to see the end of the movie, and your getting the poorly made sequel.

There's been a systematic breaking down of EVERYTHING involving people. Pre-1985, I seen people I knew still holding to values, neighbors spoke. Parents raised kids, a week of school was rewarded with Saturday morning cartoons, and the cartoons were teen soaps. If you did something bad and a neighbor seen it, they'd spank you, then your parents, when the neighbor told them what you did because "it takes a village to raise a child", still rang true. In my area, I remember when coc aine-crack/AIDS took hold, nice middle class mixed neighborhood, my dads a cop, and mom, university. Area went from neighbors spoke, to doors locked and 'don't speak to anyone except who I tell you too'(my parents) all while corporations increased the bloodletting of the middle class.

The free love/civil rights/black power movements of the 60's had created very strong people, and that wasn't needed. Introduce coc aine-crack, to decimate the black community, coc aine to slow hippies kids, STD's to kill free love, and from the chaos of drugs, and its effects, I BELIEVE, set back an entire generation. My neighbors were a prime example. Mixed couple(black husband, white wife)he, fought in vietnam, came back disgruntled, shellshocked alcoholic, her? To deal with the stress, tried drugs to cope. The effect? A daughter with no guidance from the folks. So my parents stood in as best they could, but the daughter got pregnant @12. Her parents were too out of it to care what she did when at home.

Here's a thought,

maybe these idiotic militia nutheads shouldn't threaten the government.

Could make things easier, no?




actually we don't...and I think you know that...the more permanent militia groups do not do that at all...It is a fringe element that many of us do not have anything to do with in the first place...

so do some research before you make an assumption that is really badly unfounded...

Dude, the bill of rights was tossed out by the Bush gov't and continued on by the obama gov't. I.e. Patroit act 1 & 2 where have you been living ? mars?
How come you weren't screaming about this 10 years ago. Its far too late now to do anything about what we used to have. The gov't will just put a spin on it and make YOU into a home grown terrorist, smash in your door, take your kids away, toss you in a dark cell. Give you no phone call, no attorny, no bail. You'll be guilty with no appeal. Welcome to the real US of A...
Simularities: Nazi german 1936-1945.
And to think you folks kept yelling out "yes we can"...sheesh..::wanders off to feed his fish::

Are you saying the government is not evil? Most of the time it is..or a very reasonable facsimile of that item or word.

And as for saving people... most of us out here in the more rational elements of the militias in the US ...have little intention of saving some peoples butts...
Most of the people who do nothing but stand around with their hands on their crotch and the other one out asking for cradle to grave protection and the need to be baby sat... are not much of interest to any of us...

We are more inclined to restoring the constitution, and returning the nation to the people... and trust me most of the militia people would not associate with a-holes like yourself that run around and operate upon some false notion that we are all idiots... clearly you must be 16 and watching the annointed one quiver and walk on water..

because no one is going to assist you in anything... you are either going to survive or die... makes no difference...there are actual people out there that will need help, and if a person is not willing to stand up... they need to go find a place to off themselves because they will have nothing coming...

In closing you are either terribly misinformed about what militias really are or you choose to remain uninformed and ignorant...

they will kick in a few doors but that is as far as it will go... because they will have fired the first shot and opened the dance....

their choice...and many of us were around yelling and hollering about all that way back and in some of our cases long before you were born... because it started way back...

the obamanics are doing all they can to discredit anyone that speaksd out about this crook.... and for the time being we are quitet and we are peaceful in our actions...

and you are not seeing real members of real militia that are solidly based... you are seeing fringe elements that we have nothing to do with...

You're right.

These "militias" can stand around and bicker about how much they hate the government. It's not going to do them any good and you know what, when someone They like is in office, they will live happily ever after..until someone they dislike because of their Party affiliation or color steps in. Then they'll preach like it's the end of America.

Oohh wait, it's ATS. Anything a Democrat does is the end of the world, I forgot.

nope... sarcasm becomes you as does ignorance...

you need to understand what real militas are all about... before you run that pie hole of yours because right now you really give the serious impression that you are sreiously ill informed..

And we really do not take the party line of it all...we want america back in the hands of the people not in the hands of traitors and constitutional law violators and if we could we would get em all...

and we also do not set around and whine...we are active in politics and in making our presence known and because we have guns and know how to use them those that are losing their power and control over the people are looking for someone new to demonize and it is sadly americans that are concerned..

you aren't and that is your choice.

So how do you plan on bringing America back to the people? What will you exactly bring back? After wards, what is the plan?

I don't pretend I have the answers on how to fix the government, but let's see you do it instead


I can't wait when Obama is out of office and a Republican enters. This site will no longer be as active it is now. Because so many posters will have no more stories to make up or propaganda they heard from Fox News

Alright lets all get on the same page here and come to some consensus before we all meet in the real world. What are you talking about? what is your mission statement - if you will - You are turning your back on the uninformed when the chips are down? And all will benefit from a Restored Republic essentially saving their butts - What is the empasse here? You and I both know its the real deal so where are we at odds?

Disregard - being impatient

That's ironic, I was just thinking after reading the OP about the absolute garbage laws they've invented for Bikers in Australia, the Anti-Association laws.

Yep, they've been sneaking this crap in all over the world now for a few years.

Anti-Association laws, Anti-Fortification laws, Laws that confiscate EVERYTHING you own for possession of a quantity of drugs (regardless if you're aware of it being on your premises or not)...

Might aswell just ask permission to build a prison and get it over with.

youre one to talk about propaganda... you have no clue what a militia actually is let alone fathom what it is they stand for... stop listening to the MSNBC jerk and start reading... you might learn something...

As for what we would do... nothing till they fire the first shot...and then maybe you might see your rights returned to you... the ones you have no concern for...

I would bet you are not a gun rights person. staunch liberal in the left leaning tree.... and many other things...

read some for awhile and then come back
