SEIU? Naah, those goons wouldn't know the business end of a mini14 or ar15 from a set of jumper cables. They're just useful idiots for the power mad sycophants in deecee.

High my name is "Domestic Terrorist!"

I'd say it's in good company to be a fellow "Domestic Terrorist", complete with an FBI and NSA dossier. And who knows what the chocolate emperors little red diaper babies, radical chic, Fabien psychopaths, and useful tools, are compiling on their most feared enemies huh?
Kind of puts things in proper perspective. To put it simply, it is a good thing that the princes and perfumed mandarins of greed and darkness consider such humble subjects of rule of men such as ourselves existential enemies. It is worthy of note also, in this whole world gone crazy, it is a civil moral law respecting middle working class that is justly perceived as a threat, but not just any threat, me thinks the only threat which exists, very much capable of the violence and extermination required to rid itself of said ruling class and its corruption of everything.(who else is there? and once left with no peaceful means of redress, being the industrious and ingenious people they are, are more than capable of wiping the few hundred thousand tyrants and their ilk off the face of this republic.) That is as it should be really, Liberty and self determination being the true fundamental trans-formative and revolutionary idea it is. I place the truth under the banner of trans-formative and revolutionary too.

Truth be told, I think your on to something here Mr. Jay.
Makes think of the great Andrew Brietbart's axiom of "Culture is upstream of politics"
Rightfully so.
I think Liberty is upstream of tyranny. And tyranny is a system of diminishing returns. Kind of like a grinding wheel, the more it's diameter is reduced the more diameter it looses trying to accomplish the same wearing down the subjects of it's efforts.

Like you put it sublimely, "for all that's worth".

Those who impose whatever form of violence or pseudo legitimacy, force really, and strip mining of our inherent wealth, it is consent and a plurality they can not thieve, coerce or buy among an America of self determination, aka "Domestic Terrorists".

I hope they are afraid, very afraid. They should be like all tyrants are afraid of power they can not control.
I hope it haunts their nightmares, it is whispered in the inner sanctums of their chambers of corruption and treason, that they are secretly terrified of what will be done to them for what they are doing to us.

There is truth in this I think indeed. If there was not, why classify so many as domestic terrorists in a world outside our borders awash in terror bllod and destruction?

It's wonderful and a matter of quiet pride, and of principle, to keep such company as the only people on God's green Earth that live by an order of civility and honor rule of law, that of which I believe is all that seems to be holding things together.
It certainly ain't those running things.

Yes, good company to be in.

That fat lady ain't even warming up. Cause we got an opportunity to finish what our founders began, an opportunity which comes only once in an age.
Just imagine what America can be. Makes the last two hundred years pale in comparison.

domestic terrorist:

they are horribly afraid of us. and, it is why they do not want us armed.

they do not want us capable of defending our liberty.

john jay

p.s. as i type this, i see that hamas has executed about 20 of its "fellow citizens" for having the temerity to oppose the war hamas has brought down on their heads.

i believe this says it all, w/ regard to being without arms when ruled by thugs.

High my name is "Domestic Terrorist!"

As they say, sometimes you got to spit on your hands and hoist the flag. It just comes down to you gotta do what u gotta do. And it is coming to that.

I believe in the indomitable spirit of Liberty, maybe it is the dignity of Liberty.

(naked ladies are pretty nice too)

The spirit of which I hope more people discover they are not alone in possessing.
It is a plurality of people such as this who can change the world.
A plurality did, 230 some odd years past.
Must have worked. A plurality.
You know, that 5000 year leap and all.
And the same bad actors crooks thieves and traitors are still trying to kill Liberty.
They are still trying to disarm us.
Funny that.
Ain't working out so well. Citizen disarmament that is.

I see it as a badge of honor to be an enemy of the state. It has a certain noble caveat, of course the potential blood and misery it carries is ugly dirty nasty business. But that is OK, I have made peace with myself on that score and I hope the great creator. Some things are just too important to leave to others. As why should somebody else die for my Liberty? Not if I have integrity and honestly look at the truth of us, of things. I don't believe there is any voting our way out of whats come to us. But that is OK also, it is kind of as it should be all things considered.
Though it didn't have to be this way, it is.

In any case,
if you have not had the opportunity to read either essays below, I found them are worthy reads.

And if those interest you I highly would recommend three other works:

Resistance to Tyranny by Joseph P. Martino, the beginning of his work defines the just causes of defiance and resistance. The later chapters dealing with the technical aspects are rather naive, (in my honest opinion), and fail to explore the realities of what the partisan and auxiliary is faced with. Which in no way detracts from the essence of this courageous work on freedom and fighting for it.

http://www.amazon.com/Resistance-Tyranny-Joseph-P-Martino/dp/1450574289/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1407093255&sr=8-1&keywords=Resistance+to+tyranny

The second is a cautionary tale of the fundamental transformation of America. Written by a rather sharp fellow who was a Navy Seal. The 3 books in the series could be mistaken for pulp fiction action stories. But don't be fooled, they are written with a seriously keen insight into the path those running things are taking us with their agenda. Written pre 2008, the similarities of the characters and events have proven to uncannily parallel real events. Many accounts of the ultimate intended and unintended consequences of statist social engineering and its certain bloody misery it creates.

In a word, chilling. With a cast of reluctant people facing dire straights who rise against all odds and never say die. The author has put his trilogy up for free or 99 cents on Kindle 3 times, along with a grass roots hashtag campaign to get rated in the #1 spot on amazon. He did it too.

Enemies Foriegn and Domestic by Matthew Bracken

http://www.amazon.com/Enemies-Foreign-Domestic-Matthew-Bracken/dp/0972831010/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1407093853&sr=8-1&keywords=enemies+foreign+and+domestic

The 3rd is a practical work of fiction by an amazing gentleman. It is also a fictional story, but one that takes the holistic concept of SUT, (small unit tactics), incorporated in a manner which lends a kind of cognitive real time example of insurgency warfare. A great swashbuckler too. Written by a guy who has done it and teaches SUT. And believe you me, the whole idea of how and why it is the basis of all combat is something worth selling a kidney to learn. It is empowering in a way that fundamentally changes everything.

Kind regards, D.T.

ps, have enjoyed so many of your post, and received much thought provoking insights, I hope to give a little something in return.

Americas Ruling Class - And The Perils of Revolution

Default of a different kind

It's said the human intellect is the highest achievement of evolution, but as George Carlin said: look what's telling us that. Mankind supposedly triumphed because of his toolmaking genius and organizational skills and language and ability to plan and provide for the future. None of these are the real reason. Man prevails because he has a hole card: he's the most creatively violent species the planet has ever produced. Deny it and you deny your own true self. If you've ever weeded a garden you have an understanding of the principle

Oh, we feel guilty about it, we rationalize, we excuse, yet murder and mayhem is our default. Now consider which part of our population is growing faster. The ever-so-sensitive peddlers of tolerance and understanding aren't even replacing themselves while the coldly vicious and minimally sentient multiply unchecked. They can scarcely use tools much less make them, nor can they organize themselves much less anything else. But they are violent as a first option; irrationally, unpredictably, homicidally and proudly so. It is they who are prevailing, not their over-aware and over-educated keepers. You'd think smart people would notice these things.

The feral aren't the feral because, say, the educational system is defective—although it is defective and fundamentally so, we're now 24th in the world. Education fails to engage and redirect the feral because it's built around the fantasy that everybody will be smart and nice if nurtured just so. No they won't. No amount of education can improve the incurious. They will become what they admire—the stunningly stupid, criminally improvident and violently impulsive. They know it and we know it. The difference is, they admit it and we don't.

Willful ignorance has a lot going for it, the natural adaptability of the uncomplicated for one. When clever meets overthinker, bet on clever. Clever adapts. The overthinker mistakes complexity for adaptability. It's a bad mistake. Complexity is something engineers avoid because modes of failure increase exponentially while the benefits increase linearly, if at all. Complexity is costly in and of itself, but what overwhelms systems is the maintenance. Maintenance of complex systems is a sort of artificial adaptability, ad hoc changes for specific instances, inserted by hand so to speak, all very clumsy and after the fact. Eventually maintenance doesn't just overwhelm the system, it becomes the system.

For example, the cost to society of laws and regulations eventually reaches a point where no conceivable benefit could justify it. We're asked to believe lawlessness would exact an even greater price. Not proven, and not even a choice. Complex societies get so stupefying unintelligible, so convoluted and self-contradicting as to be the direct equivalent of lawlessness. "Government by enabling act" is getting to be so obvious even the media is noticing:

Using “prosecutorial discretion” as a pretext, he has exempted the vast majority of illegal aliens from the consequences of their actions. He has formally amnestied—without legislative authorization—more than a half-million illegal immigrants who claim to have come here before age 16. He is signaling that sometime this year he will unilaterally, and illegally, amnesty half or more of the roughly 12 million illegal aliens now living in the United States.
Mark Krikorian at washingtontimes.com

and,

On no legal basis, all 4.5 million residents of the five U.S. territories were quietly released from ObamaCare. It seems the costs of healthcare soared in these five territories due to uneconomic mandates... WSJ reports all of a sudden last week HHS discovered new powers after "a careful review of this situation and the relevant statutory language," that enabled them to 'selectively exempt' American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands, and Virgin Islands from Obamacare.
Wall Street Journal and Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com

Nor does DC shrink from creating enemies of the state on the basis of "a reasonable suspicion to believe that a person is a known or a suspected terrorist", which they admit doing, with Soviet-style secrecy, on no evidence at all:

The U.S. government is rapidly expanding the number of names it accepts for inclusion on its terrorist watch list, with more than 1.5 million added in the last five years.
Matthew Barakat at ap.org

For another, federal government is now so complex their agencies fail at inception, the Department of Energy for example. It was sold to the people during the oil crisis of the 1970s as a command system mandated to achieve energy independence. Clear enough. Instead we have buildings full of professionals working diligently to dismantle what energy independence we had and to frustrate future attempts. DOE's mandate was effectively annulled when the EPA "discovered" coal and oil have—gasp!—downsides, and took them off the table. This twisted the DOE into a self-paralyzing loop, like a thermostat where "off" and "on" are set at the same temperature. They can't abandon their mandate and they can't pursue their mandate—every energy source has a downside. So they've "gone lawless" and do neither, or occasionally, both.

Because modes of failure multiply with each patch, more maintenance means more failure. Once committed to this tar pit there's no U-turn out. So they dither in ever-slower motion, with all the purpose of the purposeless, slowly toppling in place, as-is. A recent headline from parched California illustrates the concept, "California couple faces fine for brown lawn after complying with water-saving rules". Which gets us back to violence.

As always, complexity cedes ground to adaptability. We're well into it. We're no longer a nation of laws, we're a nation of men, specifically those men who were the first to figure out legitimacy is no longer a serious constraint, and there are no other constraints. Said another way, they adapted. The populace is just now noticing all enterprises are, or are becoming, criminal enterprises, "non-profit" and "faith based" organizations not excepted. It's no mystery how to adapt to lawlessness.

Absent legitimacy it's a sprint to whatever irreducible power center presents itself. As in any other no-rules fight, the violent prevail over the peaceful and the homicidal prevail over the violent. This isn't mere looting, major assets, even national assets, are in play. Mexico for example, one of the most violent countries on earth, is conquering—not merging with, conquering—the southwestern US. National borders are always under control, the only question is by whom, and events are answering that question. We forfeited this essential element of sovereignty by getting wrapped around our own prissy little axle while Mexico and its domestic enablers adapted.

The middle class is the designated prey in all this. This is unwise. Middle class America is no less violent than any other people. They seem passive because they're results oriented. They rise not out of blood frenzy but to solve the otherwise insoluble. Their methods of choice are good will, cooperation, forbearance, negotiation and finally, appeasement, roughly in that order. Only when these fail to end the abuse do they revert to blowback. And they do so irretrievably. Once the course is set and the outcome defined, doubt is put aside. The middle class is known, condemned actually, for carrying out violence with the efficiency of an industrial project where bloody destruction at any scale is not only in play, it's a metric. Remorse is left for the next generation, they'll have the leisure for it. We'd like to believe this is merely dark speculation. History says it isn't.

Come such a time, we shall find our personal default mode to be as bad as we imagine. It had better be. When good people arrive at the bottom they'll find it already populated with masters of lawlessness and violence by both inclination and long experience. Chances are they aren't you, but don't despair, the learning curve is no more steep than the descent. Should societal norms give way altogether, should there be a catastrophe, it won't matter much who or what you are, only what you'll do or not do. And we'll all find out together.

High my name is "Domestic Terrorist!"
