    I will keep it up, that is, the common sense, and historical perspective, your analogy was pretty far off, you must admit.

    Re: Explosive Growth of Militias

    As a soldier who would be called up to assist local law enforcement in quelling riots or other civil unrest, I welcome the formation of organised militias. Think of the repor we could develop between the militia and law enforcement, between the militia and the Guard. Militia folks could get a firm grasp on their roll, where the lines of responsibility are, how to interact with law enforcement and the Guard, and most importantly that every bullet has a lawyer attached to it.

    Organised militia can create an orientation program for unorganized militia, also.

    Good working relationships between entities are always a good thing.

Should he be suspected of being a muslim extremist, because of this behavior, or must there be more evidence of his nature and intent? Afterall, he's *muslim-looking*, and he takes a bunch of guys out to shoot in the woods.
    Clearly it would take more than that to raise suspicion. For example, if they called the group "Militia Jihad" or somesuch, and had a web page with tons of inflammatory rhetoric suggesting that they might just go postal against the U.S. government should *they* determine that the government has taken some kind of action, or the courts have made some kind of decision, that *they,* in all their wisdom, deem inappropriate.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Nah, nothing to see here, folks. Move along.
    The research you provided noted eight violent militia members. Are you implying all militia are in some way connected to the radical ones?

    That logic in turn would indicate Obama as potentially dangerous due to his long standing relationships with radicals Bill Ayres, Bernardine Dohrn, and Saul Alinsky, to name a few.

    Why do you say that? -- What's your source on stories about them that have shaped your opinion?

    Also, many extreme leftist groups are investigated regularly by them.

    So your comment on the surface seems like ignorant ranting.
