What? How is that threating? Did you ever consider people are just threated by really dumb ****?Like a guy with a raging boner and a sign calling for the abolition of child molestation laws would be threatening to some people.
I'm saying what the **** not "you just don't like guns"I'm a Second amendment liberal, so save the "you just don't like guns" diversion.
He doesn't have a watering can.
I don't think he intends to pee on the tree of liberty.
Are you aware of any other "tree of liberty" quotes that he could be referring to?
Do you believe you could sell this line of reasoning to anybody with the sense of a cantaloupe?
Now begone! Or I shall mock you a second time!
Law enforcement no longer needs a warrent to raid your facilities. Nor for wire taps, investigations, or anything else, for that matter. And there have been plenty of raids, and plenty of innocent people arrested, warrentless, since that thing passed.
Please list them (with links), I have heard of none of them.
Sounds like proper police work to address a crime.One that made the news that I can recall off the top of my head were the Liberty Dollar raids. THAT is tyranny
Von NotHaus was convicted of "making, possessing and selling his own coins" on March 18, 2011, in Statesville, North Carolina, after a jury deliberated for less than two hours. The jury found him guilty of one count under 18 U.S.C. § 485 and 18 U.S.C. § 2, one count of violating 18 U.S.C. § 486 and 18 U.S.C. § 2, and one count of conspiracy, under 18 U.S.C. § 371, to violate sections 485 and 486. He faces up to 15 years in jail, a $250,000 fine, and may be forced to give $7 million worth of minted coins and precious metals to the government, weighing 16,000 pounds. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina, Anne M. Tompkins, described the Liberty Dollar as "a unique form of domestic terrorism" that is trying "to undermine the legitimate currency of this country". The Justice Department press release quotes her as saying: "While these forms of anti-government activities do not involve violence, they are every bit as insidious and represent a clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country."
According to the Associated Press, "Federal prosecutors successfully argued that von NotHaus was, in fact, trying to pass off the silver coins as U.S. currency. Coming in denominations of 5, 10, 20, and 50, the Liberty Dollars also featured a dollar sign, the word "dollar" and the motto "Trust in God," similar to the "In God We Trust" that appears on U.S. coins". VonNotHaus's attorney is appealing the decision and the arguments made by the prosecution in the case. Dollar, for example, is a term used by many nations for their currency and has a Czech, not American, origin."

We have had income taxes for almost a hundred years under both parties because a majority of the country approve of them as the means to fund government. If you feel unrepresented you have the power of the vote and you have the freedom to express your feelings publicly in protest, just the tea party did and just as the protestors are doing now on Wall Street and across the country.And yes, I am taxed against my will. I wouldn't mind it so much if I felt I had a say, but because my voting options are limited to a pile of crap with a D by their name, or a pile of crap with an R by their name, I feel pretty much unrepresented. And I'm far from alone. My head is always cool. Except when it's not.
