    TransCanada doesn't need that land, they want it. They can build around it. If it were my property, and those ****ers started building on it after I repeatedly said no, they'd find themselves talking to Mr. Remington. You don't **** with a persons private land, especially after they tell you to stay the hell out.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Where were you ladies when BMW moved into SC, a decade ago, or so? Fine example of a private company, forcing private land owners to sell their property, via government use of inimenent domain...but no worries, right? Because it was for the "greater good".


    You guys really don't get it, do you? This is nothing new. This chit has been going on for YEARS. This is nothing more than business as usual. Get used to it, or DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

    That's a FANTASTIC way to get either killed, or imprisoned for life.


    Hope either of those options work out for you.

    You take my land, and I take your head. Simple as that, though with a 30-06, there isn't going to be much of a head left to take.

    And when the FBI comes to question you about you arms stockpile, lol?

    Listen, dude, that rhetoric sounds GREAT, but has no practical application. Corporations have the full weight and force of the US government behind them, to take your land, in instances like these. What you gonna do? Try to sue the very people who wrote the laws that allow them to do such? And who can use the money they take from you in taxes to fund their defense of your suit? Or are you gonna go hog wild, and shoot at them?

    You either end up in jail, or dead, my friend. Or you sell your land, lol.

    I have a rifle and a revolver, about 150 rounds for each. More than enough for me, I'm a Soldier, and they trained me very well.

    It's not rhetoric, I'm telling you exactly what I'm going to do if anyone tries to take my land. It's not going to be my first option, but if they push it to the point where they say it's no longer my choice, then bad things follow. My fate has already been woven long ago, so why fear death? It's going to happen eventually in one way or another. If I die defending not only what's mine, but the very principals that I live by, I die with honor.

    Since my land has been in the family for over 150 years, I suppose I'll be dining with Odin.

    and you still have lost, corporations are damn near immortal, they can lose 100 or 1000 people but the corporation lives on and you are DEAD - at which point damn few will care if you died with "honour" or just died, because you ended up losing and the corporation won.

    I really couldn't care less what others think, and no, corporations are not immortal.

    There is no honor in death, just decay. That's the old lie.

    You say you are or were a soldier...does it comfort you to know that, should a showdown come to pass, likely, former US soldiers will be the ones you're shooting at?

    We all die.

    Being a veteran won't save someone from the consequences of their actions. If someone breaks into your house to rob you blind, is it going to matter to you if they were a member of the Uniformed Services?
