Oh I welcome foreign troops here. THAT would be the best case scenario for unrest being "put down". I have as much problem with the concept of firing on other Americans as I've heard many in Police and Military circles say THEY will have firing on US. Most will probably quit before actually taking life under those particular circumstances.
Foreign troops? Oh goodie! We have over 300 million firearms in this nation. We have over 100 MILLION armed citizens and we have the tenacity, viciousness and outright casual brutality of a society raised and run on violence from cradle to grave. Literally.
So.... If the U.S. has had a hard time in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan? Oh I can't wait to see what fun another power has trying to do anything at all in our nation. I LOVE our odds as citizens. Near 100% for long term victory in that case. Foreign troops would do well to quit their armies before even being sent here. They'll very likely die here. Simple as that.
I'm sure Palin made a good Alaska Governor..or so I'd heard at the time. She made for a disaster of a national candidate though and her judgement on current events hasn't improved that I've seen. Adding to the national anxiety and stress is the job of a fear monger....I never thought of her that way. I do now. Such a shame.....

So I agree, stick a fork in us, we are done.
We can quibble on the bullets issue if you want. What is a billion bullets between frends? But that doesn’t change the rest of the outstanding conditions that are leading us in the path we are heading.
There is a time you forget about trying to vote to change things , and start arming yourself for the situation that is going to come.
Considering the fact that ammo and weapons have been bought out across the country would give a good indication as to what point in that line a good portion of the US population have reached.
People are not stocking up to try and get in before any assault weapons ban, they are stocking up for war.
Wake up and smell the cordite.

The General Accounting Office (GAO) reports that our forces are now using 1.8 billion rounds of small-arms ammunition a year — a level of use that has more than doubled in five years. The report states:
“The Department of Defense’s increased requirements for small- and medium-calibre ammunitions have largely been driven by increased weapons training requirements, dictated by the army’s transformation to a more self-sustaining and lethal force – which was accelerated after the attacks of 11 September, 2001 – and by the deployment of forces to conduct recent US military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq.”
he fault is purely that she is a republican stooge, in cahoots with the same people who engineered this economic crisis and foreign invasions for nothing but corporate greed! Don't believe a word any one of them says, its carefully orchestrated lines played to the media deliberately for one end and one end only. Make the Democrats and Obama look as criminal and complicit as possible. it doesn't matter if what he's proposing is crucial in repairing the economy, or in solving any problems. Regardless if its the right thing to do, the Republicans will stand in front of the camera and take what ever right wing position is required to paint the president bad. At the same time they promise to do everything's that's good and required, yet find excuses when the time comes to go against it. politics, makes me sick. American gullibility, is painfully disappointing.
American gullibility, is painfully disappointing.
What they ARE doing in buying the amounts they are is artificially depleting the market to interfere with legitimate civilian purchasing of ammunition.
How did our guns fail? Last I checked we were hiring these guys from home depot parking lots to install our bathroom tiles. Not trying to shoot them. Are we doing that now? No? Good! Just as I expected. I think your not understanding somthing very important here, if a man walks down the road in almost any country on earth and just smacked the crap out 10 differnt people, maybe 1 or 2 would try their luck. Same scenario, but in any place in the continental united states you want, a man walks down the road and smacks 10 men across the face. I will bet money at least 8 or 9 are gonna stomp you out where you stand, maybe even all 10. In case you have never noticed, we love to fight and argue, we all say we dont, but honestly, if we didnt enjoy it, we woildnt be doing so much of it all the time. Almost all recreation in America is based around violence of some type, hell even our athletes in jon contact sports like basketball can hardly make it through a game without fighting. I believe wrabbit said it all as well as it can be said already. So I will stop harping on the point he made so well already.

if you perhaps would listen to la Raza you wouldn't have to ask me about the illegal invasion
it was in response to the gun behind every blade of grass post
guns are NOT the answer..they are scant protection in the modern world
they may defend civil serpants from the casual insurrection but they won't defend the insurection from the casual civil serpent
Palin has a history of saying nutty and wrong things. Never been sure if she really is a stupid as she seems or if its all and act to get attention and make money.
nder McCain, she came off as his bubble headed side kick that was lucky if she could hold her own in a grown up topic or debate. I really don't mean that insulting either because the first look at her was SO opposite that and the circumstances then were far more likely to be genuine. It's the fact she has presented such different sides that bothers me enough to really distrust and dislike her. Just a feeling..and that's the basis for it.
The la-raza is a small minority of the Mexicans moving here. They are vocal though. Most Mexicans are god fearing Catholics. Religiously and socially, they are not that much different than the US, or Canadian population. the only differences are They just speak a different language, and they have a different ethnicity.. That I why I don’t really mind it all that much. I would much rather have them moving here than have Islamic people from the middle east moving here that do not relate to our existing culture in any way. At least I haven’t heard of any Mexicans running around the US strapping suicide belts on and blowing themselves and a hundred other people away for a free trip to heaven. Yes, they have their gang and cartel problems, but we are familiar with those problems, and know how to deal with them for the most part. I almost consider it a catholic inoculation in our behind, to counteract the islam that is infecting the country.

I am not. My belief is that Americans will one day get to use all those guns and ammo but it will be against their brothers and their neighbors while protecting what is ---- "MINE" ----- Their is no country MORE SELFISH then MY COUNTRY and I have traveled the world enough to know it is the truth. And there is nothing more horrifying than the vision of a GIANT MOSH PIT with 300,000,000 armed participants... the day will come.
UGH SARAH WHO???? The FEDS have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to worry about; no one is going to lift a damn finger in the name of anything. You can't find ten Americans to agree on anything except that things "suck." The time for action is LONG GONE AMERICA...any organized effort will be snuffed out long before it can do anything to disrupt the machine. Don't think so, you haven't been paying attention! And as far as CIVIL UNREST goes...if the poop hits the fan, and the system breaks down entirely to the point of chaos, then you all shall see why THEY NEVER TOOK THE GUNS away, and why in those last days before the crisis, the threats to take them away SEEMED real so MANY stockpiled MORE ammo & MORE guns. Your guns will be turned on YOUR NEIGHBOR for they shall be the first REAL THREAT when chaos reigns. When water faucets dry up, supermarkets are bare, cash has crashed and the REAL PANIC begins... After you're done shooting each other to death to preserve "WHAT'S YOURS", well then, the DHS will use their ammo to clean up what's left of dissent & discord. AND THE GREAT EXPERIMENT WILL BE OVER and the example of "FREEDOM & DEMOCRACY" will be shown historically to be a FAILURE. Usher in, then, the NEW AGE, THE NEW WORLD & THE NEW ORDER.
