National Militia
[andrew jackson]

First Inaugural Address, March 4 1829
Andrew Jackson

Considering standing armies as dangerous to free governments in time of peace, I shall not seek to enlarge our present establishment, nor disregard that salutary lesson of political experience which teaches that the military should be held subordinate to the civil power. The gradual increase of our Navy, whose flag has displayed in distant climes our skill in naviagaion and our fame in arms; the preservation of our forts, arsenals, and dockyards, and the introduction of progressive improvements in the discipline and science of both branches of our military service are so plainly prescribed by prudence that I should be excused for omitting their mention sooner than for enlarging on their importance.

But the bulwark of our defense is the national militia, which in the present state of our intelligence and population must render us invincible. As long as our Government is administered for the good of the people, and is regulated by their will; as long as it secures to us the rights of person and of property, liberty of conscience and of the press, it will be worth defending; and so long as it is worth defending a patriotic militia will cover it with an impenetrable aegis. Partial injuries and occasional mortifications we may be subjected to, but a million of armed freemen, possessed of the means of war, can never be conquered by a foreign foe. To any just system, therefore, calculated to strengthen this natural safeguard of the country I shall cheerfully lend all the aid in my power.

161, we have better cars, better trucks, cell phones, radios, latte's, Pringles, CDs, and WAY cooler Tactical Tailor gear than you have.

Everybody is going to think you are the scruffy militia types with the surplus gear. Let's face it, your gear IS surplus.

Even our rifle magazines and MREs are newer and our weapons look WAY better than yours, with more shit hanging off them.

Being older than you, with more education, we're much better bullshitters, and we have accounts with all the local suppliers.

You're toast, surrender now, while we can still reserve a table at Ivar's.

Freedom fighters win by not losing and tyrant forces lose by not winning, the small force never wins battles just wars simply by out surviving the tyrants forces, it is a matter of economics and the tactics of the freedom fighter is to survive and annoy the tyrants troops.

Basically the tyrant forces defeat themselves as they produce nothing but death and destruction, when they have consumed all the loot they starve like common idiot criminals that eat next years seed.

Unicorn, I was hoping you would jump into one of these threads. Surplus gear? How many of you guys actually have M68 CCO's (Aimpoints), ACOGS, and PEQ-2's? How about PVS-7Bs? Thermal imaging optics? Yep we do, the good old NG.

Focus Strat! FOCUS!!!

They're talking about taking HOOTERS here!




Along with a strong belief in your own inner voice, you also need laser-like focus combined with unwavering determination.

The only question to ask yourself is, how much are you willing to sacrifice to achieve this success?

To answer your question:
M68 - I have a Tacpoint in an Aimpoint mount (Mostly works)

ACOG - I once bid on one on ebay, but mostly I use the Bushnell of my 10-22

PEQ-2 - I have a keychain laser I got at a Microsoft trade show. I once taped it to a nerf gun and cleared my garage in under 26 minutes

PVS-7 - I have a 5 D Mag light. I figured I'd get a 37mm flare launcher for my post ban, Heavy barrel A2 and use it to mount the light...

Thermal stuff - When I fart, the cloud refracts light in a VERY cool way, it's kinda like thermal. Unless we are talking about thermal underware. then YEA, I got that.

Other than PEQ-2s and thermal imaging, which is a bit pricey for the peasants, I think our collection of smokesticks and accessories would give you a warm, fuzzy feeling.

I ran an arms room for a Cav Unit at one time and I had plenty of nice toys. These guys have some pretty nice toys too.

This 'folk hero' sheriff could face charges
It was less than a week after Katrina laid waste to the gulf coast, and Billy McGee, the sheriff of Forrest County, Mississippi, was tired of waiting for help to arrive. So he ordered his deputies to nearby Camp Shelby, a FEMA staging area, and told them to commandeer two 18-wheelers loaded with ice that were being held under lock and key.

The officers followed McGee's orders. In the process, a National Guard soldier who tried to stop the hijacking was handcuffed. McGee is in hot water and may face criminal charges. But his community is backing him.

The opinion page editor of the local newspaper says, "Hang on." Six days after Katrina, the county had no power, no ice, and temperatures were in the 90s. The editor says FEMA's response to the disaster was anemic. People were hurting. Someone had to do something. A poll shows 88 percent of the county supports McGee.

In fact there is even a song out in the area, a tribute to McGee's actions. It tugs at heartstrings, but is a little rough on the ears.

I talked to McGee and his attorney for about an hour, all off camera. They don't like the attention and won't talk about the case with cameras running.

The investigation into the sheriff's action was being handled by a U.S. attorney in Jackson, Mississippi, but he recused himself. The case was transferred to a U.S. attorney in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who is deciding what to do with it.

I popped into a place where people are only too willing to talk about the case -- a blue-collar diner called Mom and Dad's Country Cooking, in Petal, Mississippi, just outside Hattiesburg.

The place was filled with burly folks who look as though they don't miss many meals. In between bites, we learned the sheriff isn't some cowboy. Far from it. They say he's soft-spoken, a local fellow who's serving his fourth term. He was a good softball player, and a guy who cheated death by beating leukemia. And to a person, they support what he did 100 percent. It's elevated the sheriff to folk hero status.

One fellow summed up the sentiment in the diner, saying, "He stepped up and did something for the people. That's it."

That sheriff is an Anarchist. He never would have got away with that around here. He'd be dead or behind bars and that ice would have melted away to nothing like it was supposed to.

ETA: He also got to live out one of my fantasies....handcuffing a National Guardsman.

It'll never happen-
99.9% of the men and woman in the Nat'l Guard can run faster mad than you can scared.

The Ruins of Empire
By C. F. Volney
CHAPTER XV.
THE NEW AGE.
SCARCELY had he finished these words, when a great tumult arose in the west; and turning to that quarter, I perceived, at the extremity of the Mediterranean, in one of the nations of Europe, a prodigious movement -- such as when a violent sedition arises in a vast city -- a numberless people, rushing in all directions, pour through the streets and fluctuate like waves in the public places. My ear, struck with the cries which resounded to the heavens, distinguished these words:

What is this new prodigy? What cruel and mysterious scourge is this? We are a numerous people and we want hands! We have an excellent soil, and we are in want of subsistence? We are active and laborious, and we live in indigence! We pay enormous tributes, and we are told they are not sufficient! We are at peace without, and our persons and property are not safe within. Who, then, is the secret enemy that devours us?

Some voices from the midst of the multitude replied:

Raise a discriminating standard; and let all those who {64}maintain and nourish mankind by useful labors gather round it; and you will discover the enemy that preys upon you.

The standard being raised, this nation divided itself at once into two bodies of unequal magnitude and contrasted appearance. The one, innumerable, and almost total, exhibited in the poverty of its clothing, in its emaciated appearance and sun-burnt faces, the marks of misery and labor; the other, a little group, an insignificant faction, presented in its rich attire embroidered with gold and silver, and in its sleek and ruddy faces, the signs of leisure and abundance.

Considering these men more attentively, I found that the great body was composed of farmers, artificers, merchants, all professions useful to society; and that the little group was made up of priests of every order, of financiers, of nobles, of men in livery, of commanders of armies; in a word, of the civil, military, and religious agents of government.

These two bodies being assembled face to face, and regarding each other with astonishment, I saw indignation and rage arising in one side, and a sort of panic in the other. And the large body said to the little one: Why are you separated from us? Are you not of our number?

No, replied the group; you are the people; we are a privileged class, who have our laws, customs, and rights, peculiar to ourselves.

PEOPLE. -- And what labor do you perform in our society?

PRIVILEGED CLASS. -- None; we are not made to work.

PEOPLE. -- How, then, have you acquired these riches?

PRIVILEGED CLASS. -- By taking the pains to govern you.

PEOPLE. -- What! is this what you call governing? We toil and you enjoy! we produce and you dissipate! Wealth proceeds from us, and you absorb it. Privileged men! class who are not the people; form a nation apart, and govern yourselves.1

{65} Then the little group, deliberating on this new state of things, some of the most honorable among them said: We must join the people and partake of their labors and burdens, for they are men like us, and our riches come from them; but others arrogantly exclaimed: It would be a shame, an infamy, for us to mingle with the crowd; they are born to serve us. Are we not men of another race -- the noble and pure descendants of the conquerors of this empire? This multitude must be reminded of our rights and its own origin.

THE NOBLES. -- People! know you not that our ancestors conquered this land, and that your race was spared only on condition of serving us? This is our social compact! this the government constituted by custom and prescribed by time.

PEOPLE. -- O conquerors, pure of blood! show us your genealogies! we shall then see if what in an individual is robbery and plunder, can be virtuous in a nation.

And forthwith, voices were heard in every quarter calling out the nobles by their names; and relating their origin and parentage, they told how the grandfather, great-grandfather, or even father, born traders and mechanics, after acquiring wealth in every way, had purchased their nobility for money: so that but very few families were really of the original stock. See, said these voices, see these purse-proud commoners who deny their parents! see these plebian recruits who look upon themselves as illustrious veterans! and peals of laughter were heard.

And the civil governors said: these people are mild, and naturally servile; speak to them of the king and of the law, and they will return to their duty. People! the king wills, the sovereign ordains!

PEOPLE. -- The king can will nothing but the good of the people; the sovereign can only ordain according to law.

CIVIL GOVERNORS. -- The law commands you to be submissive.

PEOPLE. -- The law is the general will; and we will a new order of things.

CIVIL GOVERNORS. -- You are then a rebel people.

PEOPLE. -- A nation cannot revolt; tyrants only are rebels.

CIVIL GOVERNORS. -- The king is on our side; he commands you to submit.

{66} PEOPLE. -- Kings are inseparable from their nations. Our king cannot be with you; you possess only his phantom.

And the military governors came forward. The people are timorous, said they; we must threaten them; they will submit only to force. Soldiers, chastise this insolent multitude.

PEOPLE. -- Soldiers, you are of our blood! Will you strike your brothers, your relatives? If the people perish who will nourish the army?

And the soldiers, grounding their arms, said to the chiefs: We are likewise the people; show us the enemy!

Then the ecclesiastical governors said: There is but one resource left. The people are superstitious; we must frighten them with the names of God and religion.

Our dear brethren! our children! God has ordained us to govern you.

PEOPLE. -- Show us your credentials from God!

PRIESTS. -- You must have faith; reason leads astray.

PEOPLE. -- Do you govern without reason?

PRIESTS. -- God commands peace! Religion prescribes obedience.

PEOPLE. -- Peace supposes justice. Obedience implies conviction of a duty.

PRIESTS. -- Suffering is the business of this world.

PEOPLE. -- Show us the example.

PRIESTS. -- Would you live without gods or kings?

PEOPLE. -- We would live without oppressors.

PRIESTS. -- You must have mediators, intercessors.

PEOPLE. -- Mediators with God and with the king! courtiers and priests, your services are too expensive: we will henceforth manage our own affairs.

And the little group said: We are lost! the multitude are enlightened.

And the people answered: You are safe; since we are enlightened we will commit no violence; we only claim our rights. We feel resentments, but we will forget them. We were slaves, we might command; but we only wish to be free, and liberty is but justice.

Notes
1. This dialogue between the people and the indolent classes, is applicable to every society; it contains the seeds of all the political vices and disorders that prevail, and which may thus be defined: Men who do nothing, and who devour the substance of others; and men who arrogate to themselves particular rights and exclusive privileges of wealth and indolence. Compare the Mamlouks of Egypt, the nobility of Europe, the Nairs of India, the Emirs of Arabia, the patricians of Rome, the Christian clergy, the Imans, the Bramins, the Bonzes, the Lamas, etc., etc., and you will find in all the same characteristic feature: -- Men living in idleness at the expense of those who labor.

That's much better, thank you Strat.



I prefer to wade through your drivel in small chunks.
