Tuesday, May 31, 2011A very good post, but he is wrong. It started August 21, 1992 when a 14-year old boy was shot in the back by US Federal Marshall Degan who was in turn shot and killed by Kevin Harris.
I have been counseled to back down, to take it easy, to remember that there is more to this than a flash in the pan, a moment of explosion. I should wait, I know, but for what? The war started in Arizona a few weeks ago.
To remind you:
"Richard Rogers was in command of the contingent of the FBI HostageThe next day, FBI Sniper Lon Horiuchi shot Sammy's 42-year old mother through the head while she was holding his ten-month old brother.
Rescue Team2 which were deployed as snipers around the cabin.
Rogers, while in flight to Ruby Ridge, rewrote the "Rules for
Engagement." Normally, federal law enforcement personnel may fire
only when facing death or grievous harm. This is generally taken
to mean they will return fire but not initiate it. Rogers new
orders were literally a death warrant for the adults, both male and
The new rules read:
"If any adult in the compound is observed with a weapon after the
surrender announcement is made, deadly force can and should be
employed to neutralize the individual."
The new rules further stated "If any male is observed with a weapon
prior to the announcement, deadly force can and should be employed
if the shot can be taken without endangering the children."
Less than eight months later, FBI Sniper Lon Horiuchi was it again at Waco.
Since the end of both, I estimate that roughly ninety-five percent of gun owners, Constitutionalists and professed Liberty Lovers I have spoke with (along with everyone else) about these events has denied the truth of this.
And this is why not a one of them has been hanged, fried, or has had a needle stuck in their arms- let alone had to pull tar and feathers from their skin.
No T.L. Davis, Jose Guerena was not the start, he is but the latest.
How much longer will Jefferson's proclamation be ignored?
"...That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed."Not much longer I think.
