December 14th (you fill in the year)

Dear Mom,
The kids are finally in bed after one hectic day! It started off with Officer Davidson knocking on our door for an unannounced search of our house. We thought we might get away with only having one this year, but I guess it was our turn again. Like they say, if you have nothing to hide, you shouldn't mind. He was very polite and complimented us on our Christmas tree. But I was quite
embarrassed because I hadn't had a chance to pick up and the place was a mess. After we signed the statement declaring we had broken no laws, he was on his way.
That left just enough time to get the kids cleaned, fed, dressed and on the way to church. We got there in time, but I couldn't attend services with Bill and the kids because I hadn't noticed my worship license had expired.
It's my own fault. I get so busy that I lose track. I should have renewed it back in September before the big fee increase. I'll do it next week. I hope my picture turns out better on this one. I may even ask for an additional religion on my license because the O'Briens have invited us to attend Mass with them.
After church we went to the mall, and I finally found that book I've been looking for on coping with my diabetes, but couldn't buy it because I had just bought a recipe book last weekend. I suppose I could submit a request for a special permit to buy a second book in a 30-day period, but I really
hate that finger print ink. It's so hard to wash off. I hope no one else buys it before next month.
I was elected secretary of our Rotary Club at tonight's meeting. As you know, we normally meet on Tuesday nights, but the instant background check system was down, so no one could get approval to assemble. We rescheduled for today, so it was only a minor inconvenience. Besides,the President says they prevent a lot of gang activity by requiring these checks.
Billy, Jr. kicked the winning goal in yesterday's soccer game. He's eager to see the write-up of the game in the newspaper, but it won't be until Friday due to the 5-day delay in publication for government fact verification.
Remember I told you about the convenience store being robbed last month? Well, the O'Brien's house next door was burglarized Wednesday. They believe a parolee in the area is responsible. Billy and I have talked about it before, but we made the decision to try to get a gun for self-protection.
The mandatory, government training course has an opening next month, then Billy can apply for a state permit. With luck, he can buy a gun by spring,if the Chief of Police has no objections.I just saw on TV that tomorrow is the anniversary of something called the "Bill of Rights." They say that is what allows us to burn the flag and publish pornography. We are so lucky to live in such a free country.
That's all for now, Mom.

Love,Your Daughter

After returning from church we found a few soldiers had taken quarters in our house. They have been so busy since their National Guard unit was assigned to the Non-Registration Confiscation Task Force.

It seems there is not much housing left at their post since the military's minimum training standards were dropped last year. I guess Albert Gore knows what he's doing though. It's hard to imagine that just 17 years ago, while his father was running for the office, he was a misfit in trouble with the law. Now here he is, the youngest President of the United States.

Well mother, I hope to hear from you soon. Gotta catch the 3:00 Light Rail #8. It must have been so convienient to grow up with automobiles.

Very creepy post Rip.

What makes it all the more frightening is that if you sit back and think about it, taking each point seperately, you can hear a liberal rationalizing it.

Remain ever vigilant.  Guard your liberty very jealously.  Never trust those who patronize you and tell you that "you just don't get it" and "its for your own good."

Thats why i became a machinists by trade screw
the feds i can always build my own weapons they cannot take that away from me ever! they can confiscate a set of guns but i could build more.
you can always get lathes and mills! a little
4130 steel tubing and truck axle is made of really good steel for the bolt and barrel trinnion and old military rifle barrel with at least .875 OD with a .38 cal bore then the rest
could be built with 20Ga sheet metal or milled
out of a solid block of alum 7075 or steel. see
they can only confiscate whats physical if you have the stuff in your head they can never take that away.
