    With knowledge comes power, but more often the term "power" is a highly flexible term and can be deceptive in translation.
    Sometimes, I wish I was a child again and was only worrying about getting my ass beat on the way to school, and whether or not I would make it home in time to watch Rescue 911. The whole weight of the future of this country now rests on my generation, a generation that barely knows what it means to serve. A generation whose greatest achievement is World Of Warcraft. The problems I faced in my youth seem minuscule in comparison to what I may witness and endure, which is the disarming and slaughter of American citizens and a despotism that would make Stalin and Zedong look like saints and likely begin WW3. Some days, I just don't want to know what I know. The two statements, 'ignorance is bliss,' and 'nothing lasts forever' go hand in hand and one day even the laziest and most disconnected of Americans (which I shudder to call them) will wake up to a misery of which the likes has been seen time and time again. Concentration camps, political prisons, mass graves, missing children, chemical castration...it seems like man never learns to limit their government, no matter how infamous the acts of violence committed are.

    Imagine, if you will....

    An ordinary back yard in anywhere U.S.A.... and a homeowner who tosses his leftovers into his back yard everyday so the birds, bees, and bugs, can eat. Or maybe the homeowner just wants to get rid of his garbage....

    But to the birds, bees, and.. for this illustration... the ants, the homeowner represents all that is good since he provides food.... FREE FOOD at that!!!!

    Back to the homeowner... who wants to build a gazebo out back. Does he think of the ants he is burying as he pours the cement for his foundation? Does he think of the bugs in the grass as he lays the boards for the floor? Does he even realize there are ants and bugs there?

    Of course not! All he cares about is his gazebo.

    And so it is with those who would build a one world government.

    But first the foundation and floor boards must be laid..................

    I would like to clarify my position on this just a bit.

    I don't really have a problem with police asking people to stay in, if it will help them to pinpoint a terrorist's location.

    What I have a problem with is the blatant violation of the 4th Amendment. Forcing way into homes with no warrant and treating innocent citizens like criminals.

    No excuse for that. Ever.

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.

    If it were my house, I'd have shot him in the face and called it a day.

    That being said, I will not condone the actions taken by LEA against the citizens of Watertown and the surrounding communities. As to this being a prelude to bigger and worse things we can only speculate to there happening (I just bought a brand new roll of extra heavy duty foil).

    So tell me how many people you know who have openly admitted to owning and on occasion wearing tin foil that ever believed that ANYTHING is an isolated incident.
    How you ever came to you conclusion from my post just amazes me, you must have some reeeealy heavvvy duty foil.
