    One wonders how much of that involves border smuggling incidents rather than anything militia-related.

    Likewise with your remark about federal employees = KGB. Yours was a deliberate attempt to do something other than to discuss or debate the topic subject in a more logical fashion. There's a word for that, which I will stop short of name calling here.

    That's what they told me about the Iraq invasion...

    That, plus marijuana crop interdiction on federal land. But, with that being said, when agents go into the field on those types of operations, they are armed. What I'm talking about is usually ordinary citizens attacking everyday ordinary run of the mill workers. Some of the militia groups have been linked to some of the violence, as indicated in my link.

    So do you have specific examples of mistreatment or what?

    Whats this got to do with my point? You tried to connect an increase of violence against park rangers to militia's with out any proof of a connection and one of your sources directly stating that it is the sequestrian's fault that more violence has occured due to the sequestrians effect of cut backs and layoffs. Your first link doesn't even describe what kind of violence was happening. For all we know that "violence" was just someone bashing in a park rangers vehicle or punching some park rangers nose for making an offensive comment. Yet you are trying to link all the violence in 2013 to militias.

    For starters, the water crisis a few years back that came within a hair of violence between outraged citizens and government...

    Google it. It's mostly concentrated in the western states. Try typing violence against federal workers, or violence against forest service, or violence against BLM.

    Border smuggling is normally handled by CBP. Drug interdiction (marijuana crops on public-federal lands)is handled by BLM and Forest Service LE.
