Yep. I called it too. There will be many little societies like this built all over the U.S.. If the U.S. government are really concerned about
militias like they claim, then they should really be worried now at how many are being formed monthly in honor of their behavior. I'm all for it. When
the SHTF, all these rats will be running here from cities, and other places, trying to steal what we have and we have to be able to defend it from
them. Essentially, it will be when the government makes their final move for total control and the late sheep(anti-gun, left-winged people) wake up. I
won't help them. And depending on the food situation, I may eat them. They could be running into the oven, not even knowing it. It sounds crazy but
I'm just thinking worst case scenario here.
When they all show up, they will ask(in a nasal-whine city accented voice): "Ya got anything to eat?" and I will be like: "yeah. I do now, pilgrim.

But some of my favorite people are "senior members"
I get a little exhausted with the gun debate - it's raging like a nasty candida infection and there is no Monistat in sight. So I tend stay out of
those threads. Most of the ones I've read are only there to get people riled up on one side or the other, which I find a bit boring and childish. I
personally haven't fully formulated all of my opinions on guns - I don't think it's a straightforward issue, not is it one to make rash decisions
I appreciate hearing about your background and can see how it's helped you to be level-headed in the wilds of ATS. Hope we get to chat again soon.
But be careful...I sometimes bite....
lol! I think at times, no matter how much we try, we do bite. It's human nature, I guess. Anyone, one of the nice things about a thread that is
winding down, is that frequently, the serious members then join in, knowing that the trolls went looking for fresh meat. It was great talking to you,
and, yes, hope we talk again soon.

It's funny you say that. I tend to stay away from the front page threads until they've been up for awhile. I'm not a big fan of "Star Whores." I
mean I'm trying to achieve balance in my life - getting sucked into the early stages of an angry thread is very bad if you're looking for balance!
But you would consider living in such a place, just not this particular one?
I'm a survivalist. I run my own little forum (survivalhq.net) so a lot of the ideologies are the same. On that note, I could potentially see myself
sharing living accommodations with a group such as this. But on another note, I don't think I'd be very comfortable seeing I prefer small groups or
to be on my lonesome.
smaller groups are hard to hunt, and can maneuver strategicly. i would only have me and between five to eight people to act as a supressive fire
squad, and a flanking squad. works in both urban and wilderness combat arenas. i believe a fixed position even one the size of a castle, can be routed
out by a small squadron of fighters who understand the territory. kind of like the small forces read about in sun tzus the art of war. fixed positions
can be over run, bombarded, and decimated. a fighting force that gets close to take away the advantage of artillery, airstrikes, or grenades can
quickly dissolve into the background to continually decrease numbers, morale, ammunition and supplies can bewilder, maim, kill, starve, cause mutiny,
can bring down even the most monolithic of armies.

As the author of this thread, I'm pretty sure this thread has wrapped up. When members start posting one-liners that are only tangentially related to
the OP, the thread is usually dead. Many ATS members have an extremely short attention span.
You seem to have a problem distinguishing between a news item OP and members' thoughts on that item. If you don't have anything of substance to
contribute other than one "half sentence", I'd suggest you refrain from posting, as it is a complete waste of members' time to have to respond to
inane comments. Have a nice day.
