    Oh, so now it's about attitudes!

    Basically, "militarized", is the latest in a long line of dumbass Libbo catch phrases used to demonize people they don't like. It doesn't really mean anything, but it sounds good and the more you say it, the more true it becomes...yes?

    Ever hear of, "equal treatment under the law"? It's in The Constitution.

    Here, let me help you...

    He's not subhuman, just a reject. He might make a good night watchman though. He would probably get to carry a gun, dress up like Rambo and keep the warehouse save for democracy.

    Perhaps he draws the line at *your* property.
