Tyranny in America

There are still lots of letters coming in about gun control, obviously a lot of passion and concern from all sides.

This is my third and last. I have expressed that mental health needs to be addressed, our children’s safety touted while our government sponsors 1.2 million abortions annually, our president, in 2008, actually supported a civilian army just as powerful and well-funded as our military.

It should be noted that tyranny in Germany, China, Russia and Cambodia were internal and not by invasion. I want to address tyranny for those who can’t remember yesterday.

A disturbing article by 2009 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Jim Garrow shockingly claims that the Obama administration’s “litmus test” for new military leaders asks, “Will they obey an order to fire on U.S. citizens?” It would not be the first time in our history.

Dec. 29, 1890, the murder of 297 Sioux Indians occurred at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. There 297 men, women and children were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms.

In more modern times, massacres occurred in Waco, Texas and Ruby Ridge, Idaho. Both incidents were prompted by weapons violation charges. To turn public opinion in favor of the government and against David Koresh in the Waco standoff, new charges of child molestation where filed and the “feds” killed 55 defiant people and 28 children. For Ruby Ridge, weapon charges against Randy Weaver ended with the “feds” killing Randy’s pregnant wife and 13-year-old son. In 1993, Weaver was convicted of failing to appear for trial but cleared of all other charges.

My point being, once it is law, the “feds” can and will kill you if you are defiant. Can Japanese, German and Italian internment camps, called safety for the greater majority, be classified as tyranny? Right, wrong or indifferent; you can’t say it won’t happen in America when it already has.

    We will probably have another 911. 911 was an inside job planned by PNAC NEOCON REPUBLICANS/MI6/Mossad/w some Saudi help. (But the high ranking Dems are in on it also) But anyway yeah thats the story, Osama (Tim Osman, CIA assett)and his cave, hijackers w/boxcutters and exceptional piloting skills, some hyperactive nervous wobbly STEEL framed buildings that magickly turned to dust, and collapsed oh so neatly into a controlled short stack pile..... and that's your story and you are sticking to it.

    How can we expect to have a reasonable discussion if we can't agree on the facts? That's where to start: http://www.factcheck.org/2008/11/obamas-national-security-force/

    G-Man: Reasonable conversation with someone who, like Hank, doesn't check his facts and refuses to believe it when someone else does. And re your what-the-R-stands for, I stopped reading any comment that has the word "illuninati" in it a long, long, time age.

    That should have been "illuminati." Unintentional typo, though kinda funny.

    I bet Hank is for the Patriot Act. But only when a pale face is in charge. You know Glenn Beck gets $10 a month from Hank, and Hank returns the favor by spreading this non-sense. It is funny that this power was given with not much alarm by the right. In fact, you would have been called anti-American to oppose it by the right. It sucks when this comes back to bite you. That is what happens when you only pick and choose the freedoms you care about at the time, and criticize people for standing up for freedoms that are being eroded. We are either all free or not free. That is the end result. This picking and choosing to suit your lifestyle, eventually leaves us with nothing.

    You've nailed it, Hank. What I find striking is the people who still believe the "government" is their friend. Maybe because so many live off of the government teat.

    That's the Republican mythology, Mister. You just keep insisting that they play it out for a few more elections, please.

    Wow, I wasn't aware that Serling, Hitchcock, Orwell and Bradbury were collaborating? Mr. Schwarzbach never visits here to respond directly to his letters. Too bad.

    You are heading to a holocaust of your own making by betraying, undermining and ignoring the US Constitution and the American Revolution. Enjoy eating of the rotten cake you rat party members and your affiliate groups baked.

    Wow, Gman and Hank. I don't think I've ever seen a more misinformed/biased piece of writing in all of my life. Do either of you have the slightest bit of grey matter to come up with an intelligent bit of reasoning? Clearly you don't? What drivel.... Obama a muslim? A civilian army? This untrue litmus test you talk about? It would be hilarious if it wasn't so pathetic. Just so relieved that you and your ilk are in the minority. Sober up and try a shot of reality.

    Hank Schwarzbach thank you for your letter. I have my opinions regarding the second amendment and the government sponsored events that you bring up. But, I had not put them together until reading your letter. I did some fact checking as to the events and found that for the items that I checked you were accurate. I also appreciated your clear and concise writing.

    I’m not sure if this is Serling, Hitchcock, Orwell and Bradbury collaborating, or FOX-isms run amok? Mr. Schwarzbach never visits here to respond directly to his letters. Too bad.
