Wrong, Raric, dead wrong.  The only reason you might believe this is
because either you believe the gross slurs committed upon us by the media,
or you wish to delude yourself into thinking that we are all alike because
it makes it easier for you to deal with us.  In either case you have once
again proven that you know next to nothing about the movement.

hmm, this must be the result of a public school education.  First of all,
since you're obviously new here, NONE of the regulars on this group
support the ideas espoused in the protocols...if you'd been lurking a week
or so ago, you would have seen the revulsion expressed when the white
supremacists spammed the group with an ad for that particular piece of
nonsense.  Secondly, your prejudice against Christians is duly noted. 
While I, for one cannot comment on what Pat Robertson might have said,
since I don't pay attention to him, the fear of oligarich fascism is both
real and based on factual evidence.  Just because you are unaware of such
doe not negate it's existance.

Now this sounds more than a bit paranoid.  As I've mentioned previously,
we filter racists and antisemites out just as soon as we discover
them...usually when they're trying to join.  Since we support the
Constitution, that's the only right (and for that matter the only moral)
thing to do.  Son, before you start telling other people to use their
brain, you need to begin by learning to think for yourself.

LOL!  Okay, that it explains it! look kid, I'm sure you made some klan
type *very* happy by buying all of whatever he was selling, but what
you've been reading is no more militia literature than the phone book. 
Hmm, come to think of it, Under 10USC311(b) the *phone book* is more
militia literature than that tripe you've been reading.  Patriot beliefs,
by the way are based on the writings of the Founding Fathers, the
Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  I'd
love to see you explain how THOSE are offensive to you...please knock
yourself out.

Next time, try actually talking to the militia, before you go wandering
off into fantasy land, eh?

Hi David,

technical trivia here:

the propellant (i.e. modern smokeless gunpowder) is just that - a
propellant.  It burns very rapidly, producing a lot of gas which can be
used to thrust the bullet out the front of the barrel.  It does NOT
explode.  Black powder, on the other hand, IS an explosive .

...don't you just hate it when people pick nits like this? :-)

Scott,

One of the reasons the adl keeps claiming this stuff is that the
supremacists, including members of the identity movement keep posting
their nonsense here in m.a.m., and then claiming to be part of us.  Until
we drive them completely off of the newsgroup, AND keep them there, we
will not be able to convince such groups that they do not speak for us.

no mark, but I might be a tad suspicious if YOU wore a red dress...more to
the point, their "let us know if your unit isn't listed here" is one of
the oldest tricks in the book to elicit information from the unsuspecting.

hmm, so if I promise that I would turn you in if I saw you breaking the

It was most certainly forged, and not particularly well, either.  There
were some external similarities, including a poor attempt to copy the
general style of the Declaration, but other than that there were some
glaring problems that the forgers were simply too inept to notice.

These included:
1.  Valid Militia notices generally provide a point of contact for further
information.
2.  Valid Militia notices applying outside a given unit generally indicate
*which* specific units or organizations have subscribed to the notice.
3.  Valid Militia notices do NOT compromise tactical objectives.
4.  Valid Militia notices do NOT attempt to dictate policy to
nonsubscribing parties.
5.  No valid Militia plan has ever, to my knowledge, targetted the
military.  There is no need to do so, nor would doing so be in the best
interests of the Constitution.
6.  No valid Militia plan has ever, to my knowledge, made the media a
priority target.  This would be a stupid waste of resources, as well as a
critical public relations error.
7.  There is No centralized command and control structure within the
militias with the authority to issue the types of 'orders' contained in
the forgery.

These are all things you are, or should be aware of, Mark, come on.  get
real.

hmm, other than the obvious bigotry of that statement, the real answer to
that question is that the Militias, being defensive organizations, do not
have the level of Command and Control neccessary to coordinate or execute
the activities mentioned in the forgery, over any large geographic area.  
 Let's see, now, who took the forgery seriously:  none of the militia
people I know, none of the *non* militia people I've shown it to have
bought it for more than about 30 seconds...so let's see the fbi *claims*
they bought into it, portions of the mainstream media were fooled by it,
and, well, you, mark...can't think of anybody else...

Now mark, you know that is not the stated intent of the Declaration. 
Quite plainly it was intended to serve notice that illegal acts such as
those committed by the government at Ruby Ridge and Waco simply will not
be tolerated any longer.

Are you then saying that the forged 'war alert' message contains the same
statement?  Is it also signed by representatives from Constitutional
Militias throughout a number of different geographic areas?  While we're
at it, do you believe that the activities it advocates are within current
militia capabilities?

The only way someone could have failed to notice these things would be if
he were to take *everything* that had the word 'militia' in it at face
value...c'mon mark, you're supposed to be a researcher.  A major part of a
researcher's job is learning to seperate the wheat from the chaff, don't
tell me you haven't been watching for patterns in communications?

interesting image tim, and you are right to the extent that we have a
severe PR problem on our hands, but I have seen little of the hate you and
others attribute to us among any of the militia folk I know.  Anger, yes,
frustration, certainly, but not the sort of nonsense that we are accused
of when folks smear us and the supremacists together in one breath. We
draw our people from society at large, so I don't know how you can refer

Although a really neat idea in theory, I think this could very easily be

proportions...sorry, but at least not until the reno/freeh travelling

Hi Janet,

mark has this problem, you see, in that he has no desire to understand why
we are here or what we are doing.  His only desire is to denigrate anyone
who doesn't agree with him.  In a way, I'm sure he must be very lonely,
surviving solely on his ego, as he does; but that's not really something
any of us can do anything about.  Please don't be surprised if he doesn't
respond coherently to your post.  His fear of, and aversion to, the real
world usually overrides everything else.

uh, Brad, the reason the Germans want space here is because their aircraft
don't have enough open room to safely practice supersonic maneuvering in
Germany - the entire country is too densely populated.  Now why in the
world would they want to put a base in Israel, which is smaller and more
densely populated than Germany?

I don't think you understood my historical comments in my previous
message.
Let me try to be a bit clearer this time around:  You are making the same
mistake made by many who lack a familiarity with historical matters.  If,
in
point of fact, you *had* taken a look at the revolutionary war era, you
would
have seen that the issues reflected in the militia movement today were
issues
back then too.  Everything from local control to the legality of militias
-
The Green Mountain Boys, considered heroes now, were an UNAUTHORIZED
militia
unit formed to defend what is now Vermont from the encroachment of a
greedy
New York government.  In the same manner, if you had any depth of
knowledge
concerning the roots of European antisemitism, you would realize that the
'protocols' were originally written to inflame the less well educated
European lower middle and working classes.  Because of this, there are
some
similarities between topics addressed in the 'protocols' and the concerns
of
modern day populists.  Your lack of historical knowledge in these areas
has
seriously damaged your ability to understand the current situation.


>all fits into the Christian Identity desire to overthrow the Jewish pawn
>government. 

you also appear to know very little about the psychology of demagogues. 
As
with all such, the ci types merely chose a convenient target external to
their own situation, on which they blame all of their ills.  Since they
are
also anti-semites, the ci paint the government as a 'Jewish' organization.
 I
have yet to meet any militia members who actually buy into this nonsense. 
In
point of fact, if you knew anything about ci, you'd realize that they were
initially formed as an offshoot of the 'aryan nations' which in turn
evolved
various street gang members who found themselves doing hard time in
various
state and federal penitentiaries in the western U.S.

You have totally ignored my rebuttal, based on personal experiences inside
the fe(de)ral government.  You have totally ignored the documented cases
of
repeated governmental abuses of the populace.  You have ignored the
historical record.  You have, in point of fact, totally ignored all
factual
evidence which doesn't fit your theory.  


>Much of it started with the 1980s farm crisis , when the Posse
>Comitatus began spreading their hate and bizarre legal and conspiratorial
>theories throughout the heartland. This is irrefutabley documentable.

LOL! only if you don't bother to go back any further than 1980...the Posse
was well established in the mid-west by the late 1970's.  I know this
because
I, personally, was involved in an armed confrontation with them at that
time.
They, as with all of their ilk, were a bunch of uneducated bullies who cut
and ran at the first indication that they were about to have to put up or
shut up.

I find it rather sad, although I guess one might say it was predictable,
that
someone like you should try to make a fast buck off of the Patriot/Militia
movement.  Your research is at best, incomplete, and at worst
intentionally
shoddy.  Doubtless you are not the only one to practice this myopic
methodology; but don't go looking for justification around here, because I
guarantee that you will NOT find it.

His words say that, but his reactions to *any* militia members indicate
otherwise - did you see him on nightline a week or so ago?  Also after
giving disclaimers he then proceeds to say "the militias " this, and "the
militias" that, without being specific, and yes that does look more than a
bit like a smear campaign from here.

*slowly*.  They are restricted by the status of forces agreement to the
same general practices as their host country.  In other words the USAF
aren't allowed to practice high speed low altitude maneuvers over Germany
either.  [now before anybody starts sending me war stories about being
dusted by a fighter, I *KNOW they still do this sometimes, but it really
is a major no-no].

>B.  How do you propose the Germans intend to use their aicraft, if not to

You misinterpreted what I wrote.  What I said was that they are not
allowed, by their federal laws, to practice certain types of flying over
their home country due to problems with high population densities.  They
are most especially not allowed to practice high speed nap-of-the-earth
(NOE) type maneuvers which are what they would most likely be using in a
war time situation.  Dumb law? you bet!  But all THAT proves is that the
german bureaucrats aren't any smarter than their American counterparts.

Now here, folks, we have an excellent example of mark practicing one
aspect of the 'big lie' technique.  In this case, he has taken the
compromise of the Tri-States National Communication Center, and twisted it
so as to *attempt* to make it appear that the NCS was actually running
things.  Of course it wasn't, but that's not the point.  By writing in
this way, he attempts to get the reader to ignore the facts, and cast
doubts on Mike's character.  Although he totally fails in the attempt, it
*is* interesting that he would even resort to something this blatant.

Hi Walter,

it's pseudo-psychobabble.  These guys are a couple of lefty trolls, who
get their jollies out of posting pseudointellectual pieces that get people
upset.  The best way to deal with them is to simply ignore them for a
couple of weeks...their little egoes can't stand to be ignored, so they'll

You're going to have to be more specific on this - how many are left?

Y'know mikey, I just don't get it, you've been posting this stuff here for
over a year now, and every time you've gotten flamed.  There are very few
possible reasons why you continue:

1.  You achieve some sort of stimulation or gratification from either
writing this crap, or from the flame wars which ensue.  If this is the
case, I would really suggest that you need to find a better way to get
your jollies - all you do here is embarass yourself in front of the world
2.  You honestly believe that somehow, the revolution is going to start
any day now, and you want to be able to point to dejanews and claim that
you were somehow a leader.  If this is the case, perhaps you should
consider that your posts have probably made you a priority target for the
bad guys.  You have to live *through* the revolution before you lay claim
to history, and right now, I wouldn't bet a plugged nickel on the chances
of that happening.  With the number of alarms your posts must have set
off, the feds will undoubtedly be all over you like a dirty diaper, the
minute things start to happen.
3.  You are intentionally creating inflamatory posts, so that person or
persons unknown can use them to demonstrate how the militia movement is
populated by irrational people.    If this, indeed, proves to be the case,
the warm reception you seem to expect from other militia units may not, in
fact, be the reception you find waiting.
4.  You are simply a kid with a computer, who sees this all as a big
videogame.  It doesn't matter to you what is actually going on here, so
you feel you can say anything you want to, and then brag to your buddies
about your membership in the militia.  If this is the case, I doubt that
you will quit posting unless or until something does hit the fan.  Then,
of course, you are going to have to spend quite a while convincing the
feds and their minions that you were just kidding...if you can, and if
they let you live long enough to plead your case.

So, which is it?

Gentlemen, if I might intrude for a moment?  There are two primary
problems with using any sort of biological agent.  The first is in finding
a suitable 'vector'.  Unlike chemical agents, many of which can be spread
through the air, most bio agents require a vector.   A vector is something
which will carry the virus/bacteria/ whatever in such a way as to spread
it throughout the target population.  Vectors have traditionally been the
bane of the biowar set.  Most effective:  Black Plague - the rats carried
the fleas that carried the virus.  The rats went everywhere, took the
fleas with them, and boom, the plague developed.  Least effective:  the
Japanese biowar labs apparently developed a fairly lethal viral strain
during WWII, but the problem was that the vector it was developed for was
bird feathers.  Since very few birds bothered to hang around a
battlefield, the only way to deliver the vector in quantity was to have
aircraft fly low and slow over enemy positions, while the feathers were
shovelled out...needless to say this was NOT a popular concept with the
Japanese Air Force.  
The second major problem is control.  Obviously an attacker wants the
enemy to suffer from a weapon, while leaving friendlies (relatively)
untouched (although this might not be true if one was dealing with a
suicide cult).  Bioweapons are notoriously indescriminate, so it stands to
reason that an attacker would only use a bio weapon for which they already
had a vaccine developed.  Since people are aware of this, if some sort of
rare plague were to develop world wide, *except* for in one country, where
they *suddenly* discovered a *rare* vaccine that prevented it, w-e-l-l I
know what *I* would think under the circumstances. 

In other words, other than a suicide cult, I can foresee few possible
applications of biowarfare agents in the near future.

Just my 2 cents worth
Arlin

Hi Gary,

I'm not sure you are seeing this situation in the same terms as the
participants.

>I strongly suspect the women who died at Waco had 'BRAINS' also, but
>that certainly doesn't mean they are being used.

In the case of the Davidians, they had no reason to expect the government
to attempt an all out attack on their compound, especially one which would
lead to their deaths - the world was watching, the mistake the Davidians
made was in assuming the world would do something to stop the
blackshirts...now THAT was a fatal error.


>My concern is the CHILDREN, why do these 'types' have to surround
>themselves with children, knowing FULL WELL what can or might take

uh, Gary, who are these 'types', you are talking about?  People with
families?  Single parents?  or just people who disagree with the
government?  I'm not clear on what you mean here.


>If the FBI/BATF agents brought their children to the standoff scene

The fbi/batf didn't/ don't *live* there Gary, the Davidians *did* live in
the Mt. Carmel compound, even as the FM do live on the ranch.  I realize
the media tend to make this all appear arbitrary and capricious, but that
certainly was and is not the case.  Hmm, or is your point that dissidents
shouldn't be allowed to keep their children?  that seems to be where
you're going with this argument.

oh, one or two of the folks do, I'm sure.  The actual objection here,
Mike, is to federally mandated controls. For a lot of folks, though, OBE
and Goals 2000 have become symbols of these attempts at federal control. 
In all honesty, OBE was an excellent idea subsequently politicized (and

The time when we shall have to defend ourselves, our families and

include certain portions of the federal government.  An adiquate defense

The correlary of this, would seem to be that you believe that the
government *does* have the right to, without provocation, shoot at you,
and attack your home using lethal force (a la the initial assault on the
Davidian compound), and that you would not resist such an assault.  Is
that a correct assessment of your position?

Okay, first off, nobody here is defending the FM's actions vis a vis their
rather unique ideas on capital generation.  However, what Typhanee and I
and some of the others are trying to get across to you is that  you and
thee FM are operating from  substantially different frame of reference. 
To all appearances, the FM believe the federal government to be an illegal
and immoral organization.  WHETHER OR NOT THAT IS REASONABLE TO YOU, in
order to understand *their* actions, you must understand what is
reasonable to them.  Think of this as an extreme case of multiculturalism.
 From *their* perspective they are acting in a logical manner, consistent
with their beliefs.  It is because of this cultural collision that I fear
the end for these folks will not go well at all.


>in the same vein as most religious organizations wouldn't shoot at or
>kill someone attempting to serve a search warrant.

I believe you're talking about the Davidians again?  If so, only if one
actually believes the story that the atf were attempting to serve a
warrant (which later testimony shows the atf agents didn't even bother to
take with them), would this be a rational statement.  You will be
hardpressed to find anyone on this newsgroup who believes such was the
case.  For a more balanced view of what actually occurred in the initial
government assault on the Mt. Carmel compound, you might try reading Dick
Reavis' book THE ASHES OF WACO.

>My point is 'COMMON HORSE SENSE', if YOU were in an armed standoff
>with law enfocement officials would YOU want ANY children around ?

Of course one would not intentionally wish to put children in harms way. 
However, if one is poor (as are most of the FM) and one is surrounded in
one's own home, as they are, there aren't many options left.  Not
everybody can pull out the gold card and send the kids off to Disney World
for a few weeks, you know?  As importantly, please remember that both in
the case of the FM and the case of the Davidians, the federal government
is perceived *by*the*people*involved* as being inherently evil.  Would you
choose to turn your children over to evil people, even if threatened at
gunpoint?  Again, unless you understand the culture and perspective of
these folks, there is no adiquate way to determine their motivations. 

>Did you miss the nationally syndicated political cartoon with a FM all

Interesting question.  I guess my reaction is yes, indeed, I did miss that
cartoon, but that's okay - my views are formed on experience, reading, and
thoughtful reflection; rather than political propaganda cartoons.

If you have problems with the culture in which you live, perhaps you'd
best state them in terms everyone can understand.  Wenn du deine rezension
nur auf Deutsch schreibst dann muss mann denken du bist nur eine Feigling

The correlary of this, would seem to be that you believe that the
government *does* have the right to, without provocation, shoot at you,
and attack your home using lethal force (a la the initial assault on the
Davidian compound), and that you would not resist such an assault.  Is
that a correct assessment of your position?

Okay, first off, nobody here is defending the FM's actions vis a vis their
rather unique ideas on capital generation.  However, what Typhanee and I
and some of the others are trying to get across to you is that  you and
thee FM are operating from  substantially different frame of reference. 
To all appearances, the FM believe the federal government to be an illegal
and immoral organization.  WHETHER OR NOT THAT IS REASONABLE TO YOU, in
order to understand *their* actions, you must understand what is
reasonable to them.  Think of this as an extreme case of multiculturalism.
 From *their* perspective they are acting in a logical manner, consistent
with their beliefs.  It is because of this cultural collision that I fear
the end for these folks will not go well at all.


>in the same vein as most religious organizations wouldn't shoot at or
>kill someone attempting to serve a search warrant.

I believe you're talking about the Davidians again?  If so, only if one
actually believes the story that the atf were attempting to serve a
warrant (which later testimony shows the atf agents didn't even bother to
take with them), would this be a rational statement.  You will be
hardpressed to find anyone on this newsgroup who believes such was the
case.  For a more balanced view of what actually occurred in the initial
government assault on the Mt. Carmel compound, you might try reading Dick
Reavis' book THE ASHES OF WACO.

>My point is 'COMMON HORSE SENSE', if YOU were in an armed standoff
>with law enfocement officials would YOU want ANY children around ?

Of course one would not intentionally wish to put children in harms way. 
However, if one is poor (as are most of the FM) and one is surrounded in
one's own home, as they are, there aren't many options left.  Not
everybody can pull out the gold card and send the kids off to Disney World
for a few weeks, you know?  As importantly, please remember that both in
the case of the FM and the case of the Davidians, the federal government
is perceived *by*the*people*involved* as being inherently evil.  Would you
choose to turn your children over to evil people, even if threatened at
gunpoint?  Again, unless you understand the culture and perspective of
these folks, there is no adiquate way to determine their motivations. 

>Did you miss the nationally syndicated political cartoon with a FM all

Interesting question.  I guess my reaction is yes, indeed, I did miss that
cartoon, but that's okay - my views are formed on experience, reading, and
thoughtful reflection; rather than political propaganda cartoons.

You know, Wiz, you've got a point there - especially when one considers
the fact that the nazidiots have been known to cooperate with radical Arab
anti-semitic groups in the past...interesting.

Uh, Chris, I beg to differ. I think this is a somewhat revisionist
interpretation of P.v F.  My read was that it *was* in fact intended to
counter de facto differences in treatment, NOT free association.  There is
a difference.  Example:  Let's say that while I'm working in the yard
another libertarian comes up and asks for a drink, so I reach into my
cooler and hand him a cold one.  Now immediately thereafter a liberal
yuppie wanders up and asks the same question.  I don't particularly like
yuppies, and I'm sure he'll sense that, but as long as I offer *him* a
cold one as well, there's no problem, even though he will know he his not
really welcome in my yard.  If I tell him he has to drink out of the
garden hose, on the other hand, *that* is seperate but not equal.

Interested to hear your response

common sense, and a generally democratic structure.  In this instance the
miltias have a *much* higher level of fail safe than the conventional
armed forces.

Uh, Denes, that's because Germany was forced to surrender
*unconditionally* at the end of WWII.  In order to have a peace treaty,
both sides have to be able to negotiate...Germany simply wasn't given that
option.

This one ain't gonna fly mark.  We all know Mike.   As for the information
concerning messers Glover and Waterhouse, there is absolutely no reason to
divulge militia information sources to you.

On the other hand mark,  we don't know YOU, since you've been so paranoid
about talking about yourself. YOU might enlighten us by explaining just
who *exactly* is providing funding for your research.  Absolutely no one
here believes you're doing this for free.  We've seen you post during a
regular work day, as I do, but unlike me, YOU are not a disabled
vet...which means that you may very likely be posting from your
office...whereever that might be...if you're so big on names and
locations, maybe it's time you started by providing your own.

Why Mike, if he acknowledged that, why, then he'd have to acknowledge that
people control the law, rather than the other way around...and THEN he'd
be in a position where *people* were more important than written words,
and THEN he'd lose all of his absolutes...why next thing you know, he
might form a militia unit on campus, and *then* where would he be?  ;-)

But Wiz, mark's response is typical of those we've come to expect from the
fedgov (you'll notice I did *not* use the term 'liberal' this time)...he's
an excellent example of the problem.

nice example, but useless in this context since no one here knows what you

no, actually most people can't - that's something that businesses

occaisionally, I think I could accept this as a valid concern.

uh, which guys?  crank phone calls are childish at best, if you asked,
there are probably people associated with the militias in your area, who
might be able to put a stop to that, you know...if in fact it's militia
folks who are involved to begin with.  As for 'hate email' does that
include responses to some of your more inflamatory posts?  I realize that
there's a chance you may believe you are on the side of goodness and
light, but does that mean that you don't have to worry about anything you
say here on the newsgroup?  I'm not sure I understand you clearly here.

In the same sense that many folks today do not show common sense in
evaluating what they are told by the media, politicians and the like, not
that the Germans and Italians *had* no common sense, but rather that they

hmm, certainly in a perfect world this would be the best possible
situation.  As it is, though, we have the same situation we get with every
other election - many people 'vote' simply by failing to bother to do
anything at all.  Old saying:  The world is run by those who show up.

hmm, the only previous posters who attempted to make that point were you

out - not only were these historical racially oppressive gun control laws
the direct linear antecedents of moderng gun control, they were also
intended to accomplish the same thing - keep the power out of the hands of
large segments of society.  They are directly related to the controversy

uh, from your post, in which you specifically refered to 'tommy guns'
(i.e. Thompson Submachineguns) I took your usage to mean automatic
weapons.  Unfortunately that's not what the term rapid fire means in
firearms parlance.  Rapid Fire is a particular rate of firing, usually a
given number of rounds in a given number of seconds, used in firearms
competition.  This is as opposed to Slow Fire, which is also a competition
term, normally measured as a given number of rounds in a given number of
minutes.  I have seen skilled competitors fire Rapid Fire events using
bolt action rifles, while I have also seen selective fire rifles used in
Slow Fire events.  Your meaning, therefore, was inherently unclear.

The Racist Roots of Gun Control

The historical record provides compelling evidence that racism underlies gun control laws -- and not in any subtle way. Throughout much of American history, gun control was openly stated as a method for keeping blacks and Hispanics "in their place," and to quiet the racial fears of whites. This paper is intended to provide a brief summary of this unholy alliance of gun control and racism, and to suggest that gun control laws should be regarded as "suspect ideas," analogous to the "suspect classifications" theory of discrimination already part of the American legal system.

Racist arms laws predate the establishment of the United States. Starting in 1751, the French Black Code required Louisiana colonists to stop any blacks, and if necessary, beat "any black carrying any potential weapon, such as a cane." If a black refused to stop on demand, and was on horseback, the colonist was authorized to "shoot to kill."[1] Slave possession of firearms was a necessity at times in a frontier society, yet laws continued to be passed in an attempt to prohibit slaves or free blacks from possessing firearms, except under very restrictively controlled conditions.[2] Similarly, in the sixteenth century the colony of New Spain, terrified of black slave revolts, prohibited all blacks, free and slave, from carrying arms.[3]

In the Haitian Revolution of the 1790s, the slave population successfully threw off their French masters, but the Revolution degenerated into a race war, aggravating existing fears in the French Louisiana colony, and among whites in the slave states of the United States. When the first U. S. official arrived in New Orleans in 1803 to take charge of this new American possession, the planters sought to have the existing free black militia disarmed, and otherwise exclude "free blacks from positions in which they were required to bear arms," including such non-military functions as slave-catching crews. The New Orleans city government also stopped whites from teaching fencing to free blacks, and then, when free blacks sought to teach fencing, similarly prohibited their efforts as well.[4]

It is not surprising that the first North American English colonies, then the states of the new republic, remained in dread fear of armed blacks, for slave revolts against slave owners often degenerated into less selective forms of racial warfare. The perception that free blacks were sympathetic to the plight of their enslaved brothers, and the dangerous example that "a Negro could be free" also caused the slave states to pass laws designed to disarm all blacks, both slave and free. Unlike the gun control laws passed after the Civil War, these antebellum statutes were for blacks alone. In Maryland, these prohibitions went so far as to prohibit free blacks from owning dogs without a license, and authorizing any white to kill an unlicensed dog owned by a free black, for fear that blacks would use dogs as weapons. Mississippi went further, and prohibited any ownership of a dog by a black person.[5]

Understandably, restrictions on slave possession of arms go back a very long way. While arms restrictions on free blacks predate it, these restrictions increased dramatically after Nat Turner's Rebellion in 1831, a revolt that caused the South to become increasingly irrational in its fears.[6] Virginia's response to Turner's Rebellion prohibited free blacks "to keep or carry any firelock of any kind, any military weapon, or any powder or lead..." The existing laws under which free blacks were occasionally licensed to possess or carry arms was also repealed, making arms possession completely illegal for free blacks.[7] But even before this action by the Virginia Legislature, in the aftermath of Turner's Rebellion, the discovery that a free black family possessed lead shot for use as scale weights, without powder or weapon in which to fire it, was considered sufficient reason for a frenzied mob to discuss summary execution of the owner.[8] The analogy to the current hysteria where mere possession of ammunition in some states without a firearms license may lead to jail time, should be obvious.

One example of the increasing fear of armed blacks is the 1834 change to the Tennessee Constitution, where Article XI, 26 of the 1796 Tennessee Constitution was revised from: "That the freemen of this State have a right to keep and to bear arms for their common defence,"[9] to: "That the free white men of this State have a right to keep and to bear arms for their common defence."[10] [emphasis added] It is not clear what motivated this change, other than Turner's bloody insurrection. The year before, the Tennessee Supreme Court had recognized the right to bear arms as an individual guarantee, but there is nothing in that decision that touches on the subject of race.[11]

Other decisions during the antebellum period were unambiguous about the importance of race. In State v. Huntly (1843), the North Carolina Supreme Court had recognized that there was a right to carry arms guaranteed under the North Carolina Constitution, as long as such arms were carried in a manner not likely to frighten people.[12] The following year, the North Carolina Supreme Court made one of those decisions whose full significance would not appear until after the Civil War and passage of the Fourteenth Amendment. An 1840 statute provided:

That if any free negro, mulatto, or free person of color, shall wear or carry about his or her person, or keep in his or her house, any shot gun, musket, rifle, pistol, sword, dagger or bowie-knife, unless he or she shall have obtained a licence therefor from the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions of his or her county, within one year preceding the wearing, keeping or carrying therefor, he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and may be indicted therefor.[13]

Elijah Newsom, "a free person of color," was indicted in Cumberland County in June of 1843 for carrying a shotgun without a license -- at the very time the North Carolina Supreme Court was deciding Huntly. Newsom was convicted by a jury; but the trial judge directed a not guilty verdict, and the state appealed to the North Carolina Supreme Court. Newsom's attorney argued that the statute requiring free blacks to obtain a license to "keep and bear arms" was in violation of both the Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution, and the North Carolina Constitution's similar guarantee of a right to keep and bear arms.[14] The North Carolina Supreme Court refused to accept that the Second Amendment was a limitation on state laws, but had to deal with the problem of the state constitutional guarantees, which had been used in the Huntly decision, the year before.

The 17th article of the 1776 North Carolina Constitution declared:

That the people have a right to bear arms, for the defence of the State; and, as standing armies, in time of peace, are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be kept up; and that the military should be kept under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.[15]

The Court asserted that: "We cannot see that the act of 1840 is in conflict with it... The defendant is not indicted for carrying arms in defence of the State, nor does the act of 1840 prohibit him from so doing."[16] But in Huntly, the Court had acknowledged that the restrictive language "for the defence of the State" did not preclude an individual right.[17] The Court then attempted to justify the necessity of this law:

Its only object is to preserve the peace and safety of the community from being disturbed by an indiscriminate use, on ordinary occasions, by free men of color, of fire arms or other arms of an offensive character. Self preservation is the first law of nations, as it is of individuals.[18]

The North Carolina Supreme Court also sought to repudiate the idea that free blacks were protected by the North Carolina Constitution's Bill of Rights by pointing out that the Constitution excluded free blacks from voting, and therefore free blacks were not citizens. Unlike a number of other state constitutions with right to keep and bear arms provisions that limited this right only to citizens,[19] Article 17 guaranteed this right to the people -- and try as hard as they might, it was difficult to argue that a "free person of color," in the words of the Court, was not one of "the people."

It is one of the great ironies that, in much the same way that the North Carolina Supreme Court recognized a right to bear arms in 1843 -- then a year later declared that free blacks were not included -- the Georgia Supreme Court did likewise before the 1840s were out. The Georgia Supreme Court found in Nunn v. State (1846) that a statute prohibiting the sale of concealable handguns, sword-canes, and daggers violated the Second Amendment:

The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all of this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is, that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right, originally belonging to our forefathers, trampled under foot by Charles I. and his two wicked sons and successors, reestablished by the revolution of 1688, conveyed to this land of liberty by the colonists, and finally incorporated conspicuously in our own Magna Charta! And Lexington, Concord, Camden, River Raisin, Sandusky, and the laurel-crowned field of New Orleans, plead eloquently for this interpretation![20]

Finally, after this paean to liberty -- in a state where much of the population remained enslaved, forbidden by law to possess arms of any sort -- the Court defined the valid limits of laws restricting the bearing of arms:

We are of the opinion, then, that so far as the act of 1837 seeks to suppress the practice of carrying certain weapons secretly, that it is valid, inasmuch as it does not deprive the citizen of his natural right of self- defence, or of his constitutional right to keep and bear arms. But that so much of it, as contains a prohibition against bearing arms openly, is in conflict with the Constitution, and void...[21]

"Citizen"? Within a single page, the Court had gone from "right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys" to the much more narrowly restrictive right of a "citizen." The motivation for this sudden narrowing of the right appeared two years later.

The decision Cooper and Worsham v. Savannah (1848) was not, principally, a right to keep and bear arms case. In 1839, the city of Savannah, Georgia, in an admitted effort "to prevent the increase of free persons of color in our city," had established a $100 per year tax on free blacks moving into Savannah from other parts of Georgia. Samuel Cooper and Hamilton Worsham, two "free persons of color," were convicted of failing to pay the tax, and were jailed.[22] On appeal, counsel for Cooper and Worsham argued that the ordinance establishing the tax was deficient in a number of technical areas; the assertion of most interest to us is, "In Georgia, free persons of color have constitutional rights..." Cooper and Worsham's counsel argued that these rights included writ of habeas corpus, right to own real estate, to be "subject to taxation," "[t]hey may sue and be sued," and cited a number of precedents under Georgia law in defense of their position.[23]

Justice Warner delivered the Court's opinion, most of which is irrelevant to the right to keep and bear arms, but one portion shows the fundamental relationship between citizenship, arms, and elections, and why gun control laws were an essential part of defining blacks as "non-citizens": "Free persons of color have never been recognized here as citizens; they are not entitled to bear arms, vote for members of the legislature, or to hold any civil office."[24] The Georgia Supreme Court did agree that the ordinance jailing Cooper and Worsham for non-payment was illegal, and ordered their release, but the comments of the Court made it clear that their brave words in Nunn v. State (1846) about "the right of the people," really only meant white people.

While settled parts of the South were in great fear of armed blacks, on the frontier, the concerns about Indian attack often forced relaxation of these rules. The 1798 Kentucky Comprehensive Act allowed slaves and free blacks on frontier plantations "to keep and use guns, powder, shot, and weapons, offensive and defensive." Unlike whites, however, a license was required for free blacks or slaves to carry weapons.[25]

The need for blacks to carry arms for self-defense included not only the problem of Indian attack, and the normal criminal attacks that anyone might worry about, but the additional hazard that free blacks were in danger of being kidnapped and sold into slavery.[26] A number of states, including Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin, passed laws specifically to prohibit kidnapping of free blacks, out of concern that the federal Fugitive Slave Laws would be used as cover for re-enslavement.[27]

The end of slavery in 1865 did not eliminate the problems of racist gun control laws; the various Black Codes adopted after the Civil War required blacks to obtain a license before carrying or possessing firearms or Bowie knives; these are sufficiently well-known that any reasonably complete history of the Reconstruction period mentions them. These restrictive gun laws played a part in the efforts of the Republicans to get the Fourteenth Amendment ratified, because it was difficult for night riders to generate the correct level of terror in a victim who was returning fire.[28] It does appear, however, that the requirement to treat blacks and whites equally before the law led to the adoption of restrictive firearms laws in the South that were equal in the letter of the law, but unequally enforced. It is clear that the vagrancy statutes adopted at roughly the same time, in 1866, were intended to be used against blacks, even though the language was race-neutral.[29]

The former states of the Confederacy, many of which had recognized the right to carry arms openly before the Civil War, developed a very sudden willingness to qualify that right. One especially absurd example, and one that includes strong evidence of the racist intentions behind gun control laws, is Texas.

In Cockrum v. State (1859), the Texas Supreme Court had recognized that there was a right to carry defensive arms, and that this right was protected under both the Second Amendment, and section 13 of the Texas Bill of Rights. The outer limit of the state's authority (in this case, attempting to discourage the carrying of Bowie knives), was that it could provide an enhanced penalty for manslaughters committed with Bowie knives.[30] Yet, by 1872, the Texas Supreme Court denied that there was any right to carry any weapon for self-defense under either the state or federal constitutions -- and made no attempt to explain or justify why the Cockrum decision was no longer valid.[31]

What caused the dramatic change? The following excerpt >from that same decision -- so offensive that no one would dare make such an argument today -- sheds some light on the racism that apparently caused the sudden perspective change:

The law under consideration has been attacked upon the ground that it was contrary to public policy, and deprived the people of the necessary means of self- defense; that it was an innovation upon the customs and habits of the people, to which they would not peaceably submit... We will not say to what extent the early customs and habits of the people of this state should be respected and accommodated, where they may come in conflict with the ideas of intelligent and well-meaning legislators. A portion of our system of laws, as well as our public morality, is derived from a people the most peculiar perhaps of any other in the history and derivation of its own system. Spain, at different periods of the world, was dominated over by the Carthagenians, the Romans, the Vandals, the Snovi, the Allani, the Visigoths, and Arabs; and to this day there are found in the Spanish codes traces of the laws and customs of each of these nations blended together in a system by no means to be compared with the sound philosophy and pure morality of the common law.[32] [emphasis added]

This particular decision is more open than most as to its motivations, but throughout the South during this period, the existing precedents that recognized a right to open carry under state constitutional provisions were being narrowed, or simply ignored. Nor was the reasoning that led to these changes lost on judges in the North. In 1920, the Ohio Supreme Court upheld the conviction of a Mexican for concealed carry of a handgun--while asleep in his own bed. Justice Wanamaker's scathing dissent criticized the precedents cited by the majority in defense of this absurdity:

I desire to give some special attention to some of the authorities cited, supreme court decisions from Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, Kentucky, and one or two inferior court decisions from New York, which are given in support of the doctrines upheld by this court. The southern states have very largely furnished the precedents. It is only necessary to observe that the race issue there has extremely intensified a decisive purpose to entirely disarm the negro, and this policy is evident upon reading the opinions.[33]

While not relevant to the issue of racism, Justice Wanamaker's closing paragraphs capture well the biting wit and intelligence of this jurist, who was unfortunately, outnumbered on the bench:

I hold that the laws of the state of Ohio should be so applied and so interpreted as to favor the law-abiding rather than the law-violating people. If this decision shall stand as the law of Ohio, a very large percentage of the good people of Ohio to-day are criminals, because they are daily committing criminal acts by having these weapons in their own homes for their own defense. The only safe course for them to pursue, instead of having the weapon concealed on or about their person, or under their pillow at night, is to hang the revolver on the wall and put below it a large placard with these words inscribed:

"The Ohio supreme court having decided that it is a crime to carry a concealed weapon on one's person in one's home, even in one's bed or bunk, this weapon is hung upon the wall that you may see it, and before you commit any burglary or assault, please, Mr. Burglar, hand me my gun."[34]

There are other examples of remarkable honesty from the state supreme courts on this subject, of which the finest is probably Florida Supreme Court Justice Buford's concurring opinion in Watson v. Stone (1941), in which a conviction for carrying a handgun without a permit was overturned, because the handgun was in the glove compartment of a car:

I know something of the history of this legislation. The original Act of 1893 was passed when there was a great influx of negro laborers in this State drawn here for the purpose of working in turpentine and lumber camps. The same condition existed when the Act was amended in 1901 and the Act was passed for the purpose of disarming the negro laborers and to thereby reduce the unlawful homicides that were prevalent in turpentine and saw-mill camps and to give the white citizens in sparsely settled areas a better feeling of security. The statute was never intended to be applied to the white population and in practice has never been so applied.[35]

Today is not 1893, and when proponents of restrictive gun control insist that their motivations are color-blind, there is a possibility that they are telling the truth. Nonetheless, there are some rather interesting questions that should be asked today. The most obvious question is, "Why should a police chief or sheriff have any discretion in issuing a concealed handgun permit?" Here in California, even the state legislature's research arm--hardly a nest of pro-gunners--has admitted that the vast majority of permits to carry concealed handguns in California are issued to white males.[36] Even if overt racism is not an issue, an official may simply have more empathy with an applicant of a similar cultural background, and consequently be more able to relate to the applicant's concerns. As my wife pointedly reminded a police official when we applied for concealed weapon permits, "If more police chiefs were women, a lot more women would get permits, and be able to defend themselves from rapists."

Gun control advocates today are not so foolish as to openly promote racist laws, and so the question might be asked what relevance the racist past of gun control laws has. One concern is that the motivations for disarming blacks in the past are really not so different from the motivations for disarming law-abiding citizens today. In the last century, the official rhetoric in support of such laws was that "they" were too violent, too untrustworthy, to be allowed weapons. Today, the same elitist rhetoric regards law-abiding Americans in the same way, as child-like creatures in need of guidance from the government. In the last century, while never openly admitted, one of the goals of disarming blacks was to make them more willing to accept various forms of economic oppression, including the sharecropping system, in which free blacks were reduced to an economic state not dramatically superior to the conditions of slavery.

In the seventeenth century, the aristocratic power structure of colonial Virginia found itself confronting a similar challenge from lower class whites. These poor whites resented how the men who controlled the government used that power to concentrate wealth into a small number of hands. These wealthy feeders at the government trough would have disarmed poor whites if they could, but the threat of both Indian and pirate attack made this impractical; for all white men "were armed and had to be armed..." Instead, blacks, who had occupied a poorly defined status between indentured servant and slave, were reduced to hereditary chattel slavery, so that poor whites could be economically advantaged, without the upper class having to give up its privileges.[37]

Today, the forces that push for gun control seem to be heavily (though not exclusively) allied with political factions that are committed to dramatic increases in taxation on the middle class. While it would be hyperbole to compare higher taxes on the middle class to the suffering and deprivation of sharecropping or slavery, the analogy of disarming those whom you wish to economically disadvantage, has a certain worrisome validity to it.

Another point to consider is that in the American legal system, certain classifications of governmental discrimination are considered constitutionally suspect, and these "suspect classifications" (usually considered to be race and religion) come to a court hearing under a strong presumption of invalidity. The reason for these "suspect classifications" is because of the long history of governmental discrimination based on these classifications, and because these classifications often impinge on fundamental rights.[38]

In much the same way, gun control has historically been a tool of racism, and associated with racist attitudes about black violence. Similarly, many gun control laws impinge on that most fundamental of rights: self-defense. Racism is so intimately tied to the history of gun control in America that we should regard gun control aimed at law-abiding people as a "suspect idea," and require that the courts use the same demanding standards when reviewing the constitutionality of a gun control law, that they would use with respect to a law that discriminated based on race.

There will be an unfortunate number of folks who will, in the initial stages, attempt to go toe to toe with the fe(de)ral blackshirts...rough estimate would be somewhere between 60-80% casualties for those units in the first two weeks of such a confrontation. Fortunately, they will also be atritting the blackshirts at the same time. While this is occuring, the rest of us will be preparing for the shadow war which must inevitably follow. If you want to know how *that* will go, Jim, read Mao, Che, and Giap - we do. >Make no mistake about it, if the militaboys ever try to cork off their >little "inevitable war," they--and you--will find out that the "sheeple" >are, in fact, wolves in sheep's clothing. doubtful. look at the basic numbers - there are less than 2.4 million law enforcement officers in the entire U.S. and that's counting EVERYBODY - federal, state, and local. Given that there would be an inevitable attempt at firearms confiscation concurrent with any such uprising all we need to do is get 10 percent of the 70 million firearms owners to *passively* resist - no shooting, just force the government to arrest and process them, and we've already tied up every single LEO more than twice. Except of course, that wont be possible, since you and yours will still be demanding police protection. Lest you fantasize that the military will intervene, think again. First of all, the only time such a general confrontation would occur is if the militias agreed that the situation had deteriorated to the point that there was no Constitutional basis for the current situation. Given that to be the case, we would be certain to publicize the nature of our grievances in such a way as to communicate our sole desire of returning to *Constitutional* government -remember the oath of enlistment / oath of office Jim? 'defend the Constitution of the United States'...that part. Combine that with the fact that, as long as SFU did not pull out, the fe(de)ral government could not depend on *any* of it's special operations units to function against us, AND the number of sympathizers within the military (all of who will be encouraged to "Just Say No")...and you can have no reasonable expectation of military intervention in that sort of situation. So the sheeple will either sit in their living rooms watching CNN and being thankful that whatever is happening is going on some place else, or they will go out and protest...of course the government will view any such protest as support for us, so after the first two or three violent repressions, I shouldn't expect there'll be much more of that, either. > >But tell us again how, when the entire Confederacy couldn't beat the >national government, an amorphous, un-coordinated, and leaderless group of >self-styled "militias" are going to do so. Just did. The point of all this is that, the reason such an uprising has not occured so far has not been that it could not - it has simply not been neccesary. We CAN, we simply have chosen not to, up to this point. Many of us are working very hard to turn this country around so we wont *have to* do this, but in the end, if it comes down to it, do not doubt for an instant that we can, and will. Questions?

Hi John, Every time a Poll Test has been instituted it has *inevitably* become a method for the power mongers to prevent those who oppose them from voting. The trick in a democracy is accomplishing something positive based on the votes of everyone, not just those who agree with us. I would submit that the US, in it's current form, is actually much too large for this to be possible, but that's just my opinion. In any case, I have to vote 'no' on this one - not because I would not like to see the development of a more informed electorate; but because history shows us that a Poll Test does not accomplish this goal.

Look at it from my perspective, Jim: he is openly hostile to the entire movement. he concentrates on the fringe elements and then claims that they represent the entire movement, despite numerous refutations (which he simply ignores). he poses as an expert on us, when he appears to know very little about the mainstream militias; and uses that 'expert' position to spread his beliefs to the media. he slanders the entire movement in a global forum (this one) by repeated attempts to denegrate who we are and what we stand for. It's the old 'walks like a duck/talks like a duck' routine - he acts like a threat, therefore I must assume that he is, until it is proven otherwise. Such proof has not yet been forthcoming.

Cheez, I thought I mentioned that you needed to stop getting your military theory from paperback novels. If you had any real knowledge of military security practices, you would realize that neutralization of hostile intelligence collectors RARELY involves killing anyone. The reason for this is quite simple: if you kill one off, another will replace them, and that second one will be much harder to locate...thus much more effective against you. The point in these situations is to prevent the hostile collector from reporting *accurate* information, thus preventing your enemies from making accurate predictions concerning your future activities. That's ALL. Probably a moot point in your case though, since all you do is talk. > They >might surrender, as they are merely scouts, unless they have >disguised themselves as civilians or your soldiers to evade >detection, in which case they are spies and merit execution >without regard to surrender. so instead of being able to turn them (i.e. get them to feed their bosses the information you *want* them to have), you have a bunch of dead bodies and the sure knowledge that another group of spies has already begun infiltration into your area.

I guess what I'm trying to get at is that the perception of racism is MUCH greater than the actual racism I've encountered among militia members. I certainly have *not* run into any supremacist types among the CM. In some monocultural areas I've encountered racism, but only in the populist context of people who are leery of folks who 'aren't from around here'...in a monocultural environment it's easier to tell if someone fits that category, if they also *look* different. In other words, the only racism I've encountered in the movement is the same background noise sort which exists in mainstream American Society. >At the same time, I also think it is not just a little bit hypocritical of >American society at large to blame certain groups for behaviour that also >exists in the general society. Agreed! >* hmm, nobody I know or associate with uses those terms...there's a small >* number of folks in the midwest and west who use the term 14th Amendment >* Citizen in a derogatory way, and those I will not defend. > >The "Sovereign Citizen v. 14th Amendment citizen" exists on every >militiaboy web page or BBS that I have contacted -- which is over 500 of >them, at last count, in all regions of the country. well, you've certainly seen more web pages than I have, I doubt that I have more than 60-70 bookmarked that are current. Since I communicate primarily via the net, my contact with BBS's is also obviously more limited than your own...doubt that I've run into more than 30 or so that were uniquely militia oriented...I dunno do you count networked bbs's (such as PRN) each as a seperate entity, or as a reflection of the group, or both? I guess my response to this would be twofold: 1. As regards web pages, the simple fact is that *anybody* can publish a personal web page, whether or not they actually represent anyone other than themselves is another matter entirely. A couple of examples you may be able to find with a search engine include the 'GLOCK4' pseudogang page and the infamous 'CNG' page from last months NBC News smear job on the militias. Both of these pages are run by small groups (3-4) of teenage wannabes who apparently have little or no connection to anyone else. Hmm, last I looked there's even a pseudomilitia web page run by a couple of kids at the USAF Academy High School...unless their computer teacher has caught it by now and taken it down.... Also, the web no more profiles the militia movement than it provides an accurate reflection of American society at large. If I were to judge the US by what I see on the web, I'd say that we are all constantly buying computer equipment, ordering fancy food and gifts through the mail, taking activist stances on political and social issues, tend to hold libertarian views, and have at least a Bachelor's degree. As a registered Libertarian, I can say that at least one component of that last statement is provably false...so are the rest, most likely. A profile of the movement drawn from these resources is no more probably accurate than that of the American public. 2. Since I don't regularly deal in the BBS world, my only question to you there would be if you were counting seperate BBS's that were networked? (I mentioned PRN, as the one I'm most familiar with) If so, how much of the traffic you saw on each BBS originated there, and how much originated elsewhere on the network? Please to remember that militias are inherently *local* organizations. If a majority of a certain type of BBS traffic originated on one or two (or even 8 or 10) nodes on a network and then circulated throughout the rest, that traffic would certainly not represent militias which existed in the areas associated with the other nodes.... >That you personally are not aware of it, or do not associate yourself >with it, does not necessarily entail that it is not a MAJOR COMPONENT of >the "platform" of the so-called "militia movement." hmm, well, I'd remind you once again that once again that this is a movement based on *local* control. To the extent that neither I nor anyone else can speak for all of the militias, there may be some out there for whom it is a major component. However, to the extent that my contacts exist throughout a major portion of this country, I can categorically state that it has never even been considered as a component of any such platform. That's about the best I can give you on that one Jim. >* but that includes exactly NO one that I know. Personally I've neither >* ever seen nor heard the term Preamble Citizen...where did you come by >it? > >From a number of the militiaboy BBSes and web pages. this one honestly has me stumped - if you could email me the URL's of a couple of these sites, I'd like to take a look at them... >* Now let's look at Texas, which is I believe where you live > >You "believe" incorrectly.

In fact, you claim that what >are obvious threats are not threats at all, and what are not threats are, >in fact, threats. That's an awfully general statement, Jim. In point of fact we have been and are continuing to work at filtering the racism out of the movement, even as society at large is doing the same throughout the country. Because of our emphasis on individual rights, I would submit that we are AT LEAST on par with the rest of the US, and probably slightly ahead of most areas from which we draw our membership. As for defining what is, and is not, a threat, I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask for some specifics. Validity of a threat is inherently a value judgement, therefore the only way to discuss this issue would be to examine some specific instances and look at the underlying values which led us to our decisions. Make sense? >And, in my opinion, you DO deserve the scorn, and the blame, in such >instances. w-e-l-l you're certainly allowed your opinion, but I would submit from the above, that it may very well be based on a biased sample. >>I can continue, if you like. > >* So can I, if you like. > >Please do.

It might be more accurate to say that some people on either side will be tempted to to anything to win...which is why maintaining discipline in defensive situations is so critical. The serbs did not do so, and we see the results. This doesn't justify what they did, and it does make their commanders culpable for the crimes of their subordinates. >Rules of engagement, gentlemen's agreements, Geneva Conventions, >they're nice to hear and pretty to read-but when the talk stops and the >fighting begins, humans are capable of anything and everything. *Some* humans are, most aren't. Studies from WWII show that in large scale engagements, even in experienced units, only about half of the troops even fire their rifles (for the Marines it's about 2/3). Many Americans have real problems with taking the life of another human being, even in a combat environment. Expecting most people to engage in unethical conduct, except under the most extreme survival situations, is probably a bad bet. More to the point, one of the primary differences between good guys and bad guys is that the good guys realize the truth of the old adage "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should". >Let's not kid ourselves into thinking that should a revolution occur, >the fighting will break promptly at 10a.m. for tea every morning. No, and that's not the point of having rules of engagement. Even setting aside the moral and ethical imperatives behind them, there are some very practical advantages to such rules. The first, and most important is that we can't win without the support of the general population. Support we will not have, if we develop a reputation for random violence against noncombatants. Additionally, the enemy will seek to build a perception that we are violent immoral animals - that's a standard propaganda tactic. To ignore it, or pretend it has no affect, is to aid the enemy in their task. Rather, we must clearly communicate through our actions that we are above such things AT ALL TIMES.

Hmm, in part that would seem to reflect the differences in traditions between British Commonwealth Culture (I realize you're in Canada, but I'm generalizing here) where there was an emphasis on a more professional army and American culture, which (up until recently) went out of it's way to promote an army which contained a majority of citizen-soldiers. Experience shows that, in a capitalist society such as our own, the military gets the BEST AVAILABLE PEOPLE. Having served in a number of units which were 50% female, I can state from experience that integrating women into the military simply increased the likelihood that the best available people would in fact be there. I can also state from experience that after a week or so in the field, the *last* thing anybody is concerned about is sex...sleep, yes, food, certainly, shelter, yep, that too, but much of anything else was just not relevant to the situation. > >> 2. other than the fact that it threatens your supremacist views >> concerning sex roles, what's your problem? > >What do my, or any other, supremacist views have to do with the facts of >biology, except that they largely agree with observation?

Your views on biology are as warped as everything else in your philosophy. Now don't get me wrong, I understand that your primary concern is avoiding genetic crossbreeding, so you are forced to produce large families, thus condemning any women who buy into your spending a good percentage of their time pregnant. However, attempting to justify that in biological terms is at best nonsensical. You're trying to out produce all of the rest of us, Les, and *that* is a simple numerical impossiblity. In the meanwhile, however, you are forced to maintain rigid gender roles within your own groups, in order to try to maintain group stability. Hmm, thinking about it that way, it's no wonder you supremacist types are so terrified by the Constitutional Militias - we don't discriminate by gender, which means we will ALWAYS be able to field more armed combatants than you will, and we will ALWAYS have the best available people doing the job, regardless of the sexuality...something you will never be able to say. ah well, gotta go, I'm helping teach the range session of a personal protection course this afternoon. Not to worry, half the class is female, and at least 1/3 of the class is always made up of ethnic minorities...and of course you know what I teach them about folks like you. :-> From ahabiz@aol.com Fri May 24 23:25:57 PDT 1996 Article: 19129 of misc.activism.militia Sender: root@newsbf02.news.aol.com Approved: militia-request@atype.com (78c81e9fe4dfa871697f41764b1d76b9) References: <832433592$8078@atype.com> From: ahabiz@aol.com (AHABIZ) X-Newsreader: AOL Offline Reader Organization: America Online, Inc.

Ron, they're going to react the way people have been reacting ever since there was indirect fire artillery and people could shell each other from miles away. Some of them are going to freak, some of them are going to go catatonic, and the majority of them are just going to live through it and keep going. HOWEVER this is one of those times where unit morale and unit discipline are absolutely critical...and MUST be enforced. The issue will be whether the leaders have been and are capable of continuing doing so. >Fuel-Air weapons, for those who don't know, are like Napalm bombs that >can cover LARGE areas. Technically, it ain't a flame weapon (although it will do a fairly good job of scorching everything in it). FAE are basically similar in effect to dumping a leaky LP gas canister onto something, waiting a minute or two, and then throwing in a match. The flame is really secondary, what kills is the massive overpressure caused by the explosion. That overpressure crushes stuff on the ground, as well as any place the pressure can get into...bunkers, tunnels, and such as well as unsealed armored vehicles...the thing about using FAE is that the effect is measured in cubic acres...and anybody who has seen the effects of one will recognize it instantly. Using that against an 'insurrection' will be as good as admitting to the world that they've lost control of the situation...which will be exactly the LAST message they would want to get out. Probability of use, except in very remote areas is extremely low...and if anybody *does* get hit with one, THEY wont be around to get pissed off. >BLU-82's were used in Viet Nam to clear landing zones out of the >jungle. They were also dropped in the Persian Gulf War to demoralize >the enemy. These suckers weigh 15,000 pounds and are commonly dropped >by C-130 because they won't fit in/under a B-52. ayep, and the last thing I'm gonna do if I see C-130's starting to come in low and slow is stand underneath their flight path, you know? Both of your points DO illustrate one critical fact - because the weapons systems you've mentioned require advanced planning and targetting (one doesn't just load up a bunch of cargo planes with BLU's and have them fly around randomly :-) ) It is absolutely critical to remember that a resistance force must *never* try to hold on to a specific piece of terrain...safety is in avoiding detection, continuous movement, and engaging in combat only when it is to your advantage to do so. Another point here is that neither of these weapons systems, nor any other area weapon can be used in close proximity to forces from the same side. The NVA had a saying that went "The only way to defeat an American is to grab him by his belt". What that meant was that only in close combat were they fighting on nearly equal terms - when the US military couldn't bring their superior weapons technology into play for fear of hitting their own troops. This example bears remembering. >I know how guys are. Once word gets out that the Federal thugs have >committed any atrocity, people are going to want PAYBACK. It's only >human nature.

Why Les, you've been reading my posts. That's okay, I've been reading yours, and the others too. I've also waded through a bunch of national socialist nonsense, even got through mein kampf.... Make no mistake white supremacy in *all* it's variations is antithetical to the moral and ethical basis on which this country was founded. Your beliefs are antithetical to democracy generally, and the Constitution, specifically. Most importantly, to me, the entire supremacy movement is the spiritual antithesis of Judeo-Christian thought. That *is* why some of your folks have been fooling around with the old religions, you know. In doing so they sow their own destruction, which is their choice, but please don't expect anyone here to respect it - least of all me. Stereotyping? Prejudice? oh Heavens no, it's much more than that - you are the enemy, you simply are a much less effective one than the runaway federal bureaucracy. It would probably be good for you not to try not to forget that. I never do, nor do I intend to let anyone else forget it either. >We aren't "terrified" of you; you need to get a grip on your ego.

As far as I have been able to determine, the entire fe(de)ral bureaucracy is unresponsive at best. That point aside, we have stated from the beginning that our concerns deal with those specific groups, such as the atf and the irs, which operate in direct contravention to the original intent of the Constitution. Only mikey and psycho dave have ever tried to blame the whole government equally for the terrorist acts of a few small portions thereof.

That was most certainly neither the stated message nor the intent of the Declaration...although that makes *two* people (you and mark) out of all those I've run into so far, including the liberals that I showed it to, who mistook it for a threat, after being given more than 30 seconds to consider it. The Declaration was specifically phrased to connote that the militias would act *if* there was an unconstitutional use of force against another civilian target a la the Waco Massacre. I'll ask you the same question that mark ducked when I asked him: when, in your mind, does a promise become a threat?

Jim, the problem seems to be that you attempt to see others as cliche's. The discomfort you feel in dealing with us is the cognitive dissonance caused by the fact that no one here except mikey *fits* your cliche's.

You are Canadian, but even north of the border, you can still access the basic documents on which our cause is based - our Declaration of Independence, our Constitution, and our Bill of Rights. The entire basis of the militia movement is POLITICAL. The entire membership of the movement is drawn from the politically disaffected. We are not 'dabbling' in politics, we are inherently an integral part of American politics.

Hi John, NONE of the economic analysis is factual. NONE of the educational analysis is factual. I will leave it to someone with more political and historical background than myself to tear apart the other fallicies. Interestingly, this piece of trash is actually a parody of itself, in at least one place - notice how the author condemns all movies and all television at the beginning of the article, and then further down directly references a made for television movie and a major Hollywood production as *factually supporting* his arguments...sheesh...the author has the consistency of vapor...I won't say what kind.... Also, of interest, various parts of this (infiltration of the government, infiltration of banks) have been used with almost the same wording since the 16th century...these nazidiots aren't even original.... I suggest you pick up a couple of good books on the development and use of propaganda, read them, and then go back over this piece. That's probably the best way for you to see just how fictional it really is.

Let's take the educational analysis, since I just happen to have a M. Ed. I can do this relatively quickly. To be specific: Phonics is indeed taught in a majority of US classrooms, both public and private. There are two major approaches, one uses textbooks and the other (Whole Language) uses 'word sounds' while reading real books. Both are phonics. Both are currently in use. Look-Say pedagogy was an experimental system which was tried for a while in the '60's and '70's. It is NOT currently in use anywhere. It never WAS used in more than about 1/3 of the public schools, because from the very start there were problems - it works very well with about 50% of the kids, but doesn't work at all with the other half. Despite a LOT of research into the problem, there was never a firm enough result to allow teachers to determine *which* students would learn from the system, so it was dropped. The statement that 'schools are more interested in handing out condoms than studying mathematics' made by the author of that racist tract you posted, has no basis in fact, and as you'll notice he doesn't even attempt to support it. Now let's talk about one of the real problems with education today - parents. (hmm, bet that got some folk's attention). In recent years discipline in schools has deteriorated radically, due in large part to the total lack of support (indeed often open hostility) of parents, as well as a total lack of discipline at home. I am aware of entire classrooms of kids whose ONLY experience with ANY form of discipline comes *while*they*are*in*school*. What this means, in real terms, is that most public school teachers must spend at least 50 percent (and sometimes as high as 90 percent) of their classroom time in disciplinary actions...guess how much time that leaves for teaching? One school here in the metro area issued FOUR THOUSAND suspensions last year, all for violent or illegal activity. How much learning do you think was accomplished by the rest of the kids, in that kind of environment? You're right - not much! Unless and until parents once again consistently accept their responsiblities for disciplining their children *all*of*the*time, this will not change... Now, do you really want me to go on to the other issues? Arlin H.

Hi Robert, Uh, the thing about it, Robert, is that the entire governmental bureaucracy is structured so as to make it nearly impossible for any one part of it (say, oh Dept of the Interior) to even be aware of what another part (like Treasury, which is responsible for ATF) is doing, much less have any influence over it. 99.9% of the bureaucrats outside the immediate agency involved probably wouldn't even know what to do if they saw someone from another agency committing a blatantly criminal act. Nor would they have any real influence if they did attempt to do something. The whole system is structured to prevent it. Don't get me wrong, we need to hold the entire chain of command responsible for the actions of folks like SA Horuchi, but much beyond that and we will find ourselves casting blame on people who are as powerless as anyone else *outside* the immediate agency involved.

Do you believe women should be allowed to defend themselves? Do you believe women have free will, just the same as men? 3. If they were to 'get it on' with the feds, what next? Do they just keep shooting at the feds until they run out of ammo/die? If they did manage to win in the tactical situation, what would be their next logical move? What would be the feds' next logical move?

"Ingrid" indeed! I didn't know you were into cross dressing, but that's your concern....Let's look at your current pack of lies: >In contrast to Iraq, Israel mercilessly suppresses Christianity in her >conquered territories, This is not true. The Israeli government supports the Christian presence throughout their country. Christianity is not suppressed. What this person is confusing is that certain of the Lebanese warlords style themselves as 'christian' although they kill ANYONE who questions their actions, attack other 'christian' warlords, the Israelis, Lebanese peasants, and basically anyone they think might have something they want. By their actions (which is what God judges) they are not Christian; just the same as the so-called 'christian' identity movement in this country is not Christian. > destroys Christian Holy Places This is not true. Israel protects the Holy Places of *All* religions, including the Dome of the Rock, a Moslem Holy Place which due to the number pilgrims visiting it is probably the biggest security headache in the entire country. > (including the >Biblical village of Emmaeus) The *Biblical* village of Emmaeus is somewhere between 8-12 feet UNDER the current ground level of the site...get real! > and even takes Christian lives (including that >of the kindly Dr. Mattar, Keeper of the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem who was >killed in cold blood by the first Israeli soldiers to visit the Tomb after >the seizure of the Christian Quarter). another made-up psuedofact...no evidence to support this whatsoever. >I remember the start of the Gulf War very well because that was the first >time that I noticed General Colen Powell.

No, nor were they intended to. They WERE, however, intended to be the Final Solution to the Iraqi Army which was occupying Kuwait at the time. It's interesting how consistently you people have to pull quotes out of context in order to propagate your lies. NOW let's talk about the Iraqi government which: continues to spend it's money on developing nuclear weapons, rather than feed it's people. continues to spend it's money on developing chemical weapons, rather than feed it's people, continues to rearm it's oversized military, rather than feed it's people, summarily executes anyone voicing discontent with the way things are going. Gee, they sound just like nazis, no *wonder* you like them! Brolin, or Ingrid, or whoever you want to call yourself today, there is one concept you need to understand with crystal clarity: WE ARE YOUR ENEMIES. You nazis, c.i., and any other white supremacist organizations are BY DEFINTION operating in direct contradiction to the principles embodied in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Because of this, you are anathema to the Constitutional Militias, and will meet with nothing but hostility from us. You are neither strong enough to overwhelm us, nor smart enough to out wit us...therefore your only course of action is to quit while you are behind.

You see, He wants to believe that he is helpless - it's so much easier than trying to do anything about the current situation. Unfortunately for him, *we* are doing something. Now that implies that people *can* change the situation, which in turn shows him up as the lazy coward he is. Of course he doesn't like that, so he tries to assuage his ego by lecturing us on how 'wrong' we are. In the end, when he figures out that his cause is hopeless, he will be caught in a dichotomy - either he can run away again (just as he's run away from his responsibilities in regard to maintaining his own liberty), which would be admitting we were right - or - he can join us, which would be tough, because it would be admitting we were right, as well.

Could you expand a bit on what your perception of us might be, that conflicts with the more traditional definitions of the word 'militia'? Also, would you expand on how you came to determine that we are not covered by the Bill of Rights? I'm not clear on either of these points from your post.

In what way do we 'control' the government? More to the point, I think, the groups you named were intentionally formed to exert an offensive revolutionary influence. Our influence may be somewhat revolutionary (at least by current statist standards) bet we are an inherently defensive, community based movement. We are not equipped, or indeed motivated, to fight offensively; thus I wonder how you came to this conclusion. >It is as if the cripps or the hells angels or the mafia called themselves >militia and used the 2nd ammendment ot take control of towns and conties and states.

Ah, but mark, that is NOT the whole story. While firearms in standard calibers, especially military style (smoothbore) muskets were in fact in short supply, firearms generally were not. The privately owned firearms of the day varied between cheap 'trade guns' (unreliable, shoddily made muskets designed for trade with the Native Americans) all the way up to custom made Pennsylvania Long Rifles. There was no shortage of *personal* firearms, but as occured at the beginning of the Revolution, military units were *not* able to equip all of their personnel with standardized caliber weapons - indeed prior to the shipments of surplus guns from the French, many militia units remained armed primarily with personal firearms. The trick here, of course, is that using personal firearms, usually handmade, required that the military supply a wide variety of calibers of musket ball, as well as making maintenance in the field almost impossible. THIS, then, is why there was a constant plea for standardized military firearms throughout the early years of this country.

Nice try, but as already been made clear by other posters, Jesus proved on several occaisions that He had the power to control what happened to Him - calming storms, that sort of thing. The whole point of the Gospels is that He didn't *have* to die, but rather *chose* to be sacrificed. That being said, I am only an amateur theologian..my expertise lies elsewhere.

Exactly - no production facilities, once one left the east coast, and the only arms available were those personal firearms people had with them. Gotta remember that prior to Eli Whitney coming up with a way of producing standardized muskets with interchangable (uh, at least theoretically) parts, firearms were the work of individual craftsmen, who were fairly few and far between. Because of this, no one was going to sell their personal firearms to the government, and there was no way that the few gunsmiths (whose individual production might only amount to 3 or 4 firearms per month) would ever have been able to equip a large military force.

By the time the Germans had launched their eastern front campaign they were well aware of how short of troops they really were. The withdrawal of six, already undersized, combat divisions would indeed have been a serious drain on their already over-stretched manpower resources, and a garrison force equivalent to that required for Yugoslavia would have forced them to withdraw units from the already undermanned 'western wall' defenses along the coast. In turn, what made these losses, and the need for such a garrison force inevitable was a combination of the Swiss terrain and the Swiss military. To acknowledge that the Germans would have suffered unacceptable casualties *without* acknowledging the agency that would have caused those casualties is, at best, a lapse in logic. Unless you believe they were all going to die of frost bite, the primary concern of the Germans in this effort would have been the efficiency of the Swiss military.

My tax dollars are being wasted playing >the waiting game, because of fear of bad publicity. It has gotten tedious, certainly, though I don't think the feds are functioning solely on the fear of bad publicity. It has long been a tenet of the American criminal justice system that it is better to spend money than to kill people. Witness the number of 'life' sentences handed out every year. Someone so sentenced is effectively removed from society, for the rest of her/his life, at tax payer expense. Certainly, were one to look at the problem only in terms of cost-effectiveness, killing them would be the cheaper option. But we do not, usually, do so. Rather, we spend the money to keep them in prison, on the principle that it's better to do that than kill them. I think all we're really talking about here is whether the same general principle applies in this situation. I believe it does. > These so- >called "patriots" are nothing but common criminals, Well, I don't consider them 'patriots' at all, just people who have been accused of defrauding their neighbors...not a very acceptable practice in my book, and certainly not legal. > and not very >bright ones either! They must have been brain-dead to think that >they could get away with printing their wonderful bogus checks! hmm, naive might be a better term. Not realizing that the entire legal system has become so convoluted that even regular practitioners can rarely be certain of much, they attempted to interpret the law in their own favor, without regard to the bureaucratic system specifically set up to prevent people from doing such things. More importantly, in my book, they were also hypocritical - decrying the government's ability to generate financial instruments, while at the same time attempting to generate their own...sorry, but THAT just don't cut it either...y'know? >They have broken the law of the land.

What I was trying to say was that, in the end, ALL religious beliefs are based on acts of Faith. Now Faith is inherently a supra-rational act - it is going BEYOND provable facts and acknowledging that something *not* directly provable to an objective observer exists. If it were objectively provable, then (as with gravity) there would be no doubt in anyones' mind, but there would also be no need for Faith. Because all religious beliefs hinge on Articles of Faith, it is at best a futile to attempt to debate them...either party to the debate can claim different Articles of Faith, and there is no way for the other party to disprove them.

Of course this means that I'm not even allowed to teach in many 'closed shop' public school systems, but that is simply one of the sacrifices one makes if one chooses to stand on one's principles.

Now I realize that you've led a rather sheltered life, John, else you wouldn't have fallen for that anti-semitic nonsense to begin with; so let me explain something to you. There are two things you should NEVER call a libertarian, without hard evidence to support them - Never accuse a libertarian of cheating, and never, ever, accuse a libertarian of lying. Because we do not function under 'implied' or 'inherited' contracts, social or otherwise, the only contracts we abide by are those on which we give our word. Our word is our bond. My word is my bond.

The answer to this question is, of course that there are a number of factors which have effected literacy rates. These include such things as social and cultural upheavals, which have had long term effects on the stability of family structures, the fact that in many instances (parent gets a promotion, job gets moved to a different state, etc) children change schools every two or three years, often moving between widely disparate educational systems, the lack of education resulting from lack of discipline (which I noted in a previous post), cultural discontinuity between teaching materials and the cultural and social environment in which the students live, the list is actually quite long. There is also an unstated assumption in that question that throwing money at educational problems somehow is supposed to be meaningful, this is obviously not the case, and the study certainly provides evidence to support the fact that money alone will NEVER solve the problems of public educaton in this country. When you read this propaganda of your's John, you need to watch for unstated assumptions like that. >Blumenfeld answers that question in his no-holds-barred examination >of the decline of literacy in America and the deliberate dumbing >down of its people. Pardon me for asking, John, but as a publicly espoused antisemite, how comfortable are you with drawing support from a Jewish intellectual like Dr. Blumenfeld? I find this most interesting - incongruous and hypocritical as well, mind you, but interesting nonetheless. > He puts the blame squarely on the shoulders of >the educational leaders who decided early in this century to change >the purpose of education from its traditional academic function to >a radical social one. Now you see, John, this is one of those little propaganda discontinuities you need to watch for - the writer starts out talking about the current generation, and then skips merrily back 90 years to the turn of the century. Think for a moment, John, if the educational policies espoused at the turn of the century had been as debilitating as this author would have you believe, would they not have had a more immediate effect? Would not their effects have been felt throughout that time frame, rather than simply 'materializing' in the public school system over the last few years? Logic, John, it's what's missing here, and what you need to apply rigorously to spot this kind of propagandistic nonsense. > It was John Dewey and his colleagues who >decided that high literacy was an obstacle to their progressive >agenda and that, therefore, the teaching of reading had to be >changed to produce a more socially desirable result. Actually, that's about half right. John Dewey and his colleagues most certainly *did* advocate, and make, modifications to the educational system. However they did NOT do this from a socialist or 'progressive' perspective, but rather looking to support *industry*. Dewey was very upfront about this too - he specifically stated that his educational reforms were intended 'to produce good workers for industry'. In point of fact, John, Dewey, was a proto-fascist, *not* a socialist. Now either the author is lying, or he hasn't a clue and has never actually read any of Dewey's writings. In either case, his analysis is factually wrong. > The results >for the nation have been disastrous. Actually, the vaunted traditional textbook method of instruction, the one that you espouse in place of whole language, was the result of the Dewey reforms. While I do NOT believe that was neccessarily the best thing that could have happened to public education, it's absolutely astounding that the author could so blatantly contradict her/himself. Utterly amazing. > >Whole Language is the latest manifestation of that progressive >plan. You see John, this is another one of those propaganda techniques, where the author makes an unsupported (and unsupportable) assumption, states it as fact, and then moves on, in the hope that no one will notice. > It has not only replaced intensive phonics in the classroom This is not true. The phonics instruction in whole language classrooms, through the use of word sounds, continues in all classes throughout the school day. it is therefore a very intense methodology. What whole language *has* replaced has been the teaching of isolated phonics lessons, which had no relationship to anything else the students were learning, and which was restricted to one period per day. The traditional textbook method, besides being less effective, was also decidedly less intense. >but also the old Dick-and Jane Look-say reading programs. well I should hope so. The whole point of whole language pedagogy is to get the kids functioning as fluent readers of real world print media just as quickly as possible. And it does - again by practicing reading skills throughout the school day rather than in one isolated class period. >a whole new dimension to the reading process: subjectivism and >deconstructionism. uh, actually that would be *two* dimensions, John, apparently the author can't count, either. In any case, this is yet another example of the half-truths of which he is so fond. Reading is inherently a *subjective* process, this isn't introduced by whole language, merely acknowledged. An easy proof of the subjective nature of reading is the current debate over the 2nd Ammendment. Obviously, if reading produced some sort of absolutely objective knowledge, then everyone who read it would interpret it the same way...which is obviously not the case. Instead, a variety of *subjective* interpretations are espoused by different people, because, in point of fact reading requires subjective interpretation by the reader. It's also obvious that the author was presuming that no one reading this would understand the difference between constructivism and deconstructionism. Deconstructionism is a post-modern text interpretation method in which the analyst literally 'deconstructs' the text, through a series of processes which are really irrelevant here, since they are NOT a part of whole language. Constructivism, on the other hand, is simply the fact that we take what we read, integrate it with what we already know, and that's how we *construct* new knowledge. As you can see, constructivism is nothing more than applied common sense. As you can also see, the writer would have found criticizing common sense to be counterproductive, and thus substituted a completely unrelated concept. Propaganda techniques again, John, see? > In addition, it has become an integral part of >Outcome-Based Education. Actually OBE, which is nothing more than an unusable program put together by a bunch of governmental bureaucrats desperately attempting to appear as though they are doing *something* to improve education, has tried to piggy back on the success of whole language for the better part of this decade. Funny thing, though, while whole language is always effective, OBE never is...interesting how the government does that, don't you think? >Thus, it is a far more lethal form of >pedagogy than anything that has proceeded it. The only 'lethal' pedagogies of which I am aware in this country, are those in courses taught by the military. John, this is a nonsense sentence - a 'lethal pedagogy' would either be one in which the students learned to kill, or one in which the students *were* killed...even public schools haven't gotten to that point yet! :-) [note for John - that was a joke!] Here the author is simply trying to play on your emotions, with yet another unsupported, and unsupportable assertion, stated in a factual manner. > >Blumenfeld writes: > >Whole Language educators are perpetrating a fraud. They are telling >parents that whole language is a new and better way of teaching >children to read when, in reality, it is nothing of the sort. For >all intents and purposes, whole language is a way of preventing >children from becoming fluent, accurate phonetic readers. This is a propaganda technique called "The Big Lie" John. You may be familiar with it as it was practiced by your fellow anti-semites in Germany during WWII. The truth is that all research shows whole language produces a higher percentage of fluent readers than the traditional textbook-in-isolation methods. In other words, the author is lying by stating the EXACT OPPOSITE of the truth, and pretending that this is some great secret...of course there was a lot of that in the first post you put up...so perhaps you can remember seeing other examples of this nonsense before, eh? You will also note that the author subtly juxtaposes two educational terms in an attempt to blur a major distinction. Fluent readers are folks who read like adults. Phonetic readers are those children in an early stage of reading where they are still sounding out the words. You can tell late stage phonetic readers by watching their mouth and throat - they'll subvocalize the word sounds, in order to 'hear them' sufficiently to check for accuracy. Fluent readers do not do this. Rather, they have moved beyond having to sound out the words one syllable at a time, and have moved on to the stage of being able to scan text interpret it internally, thus reading much faster than would be possible under a sound-it-all-out system. Fluent readers, read like adults. In attempting to juxtapose the terms fluent reader and phonetic reader, the propagandist is merely working to insure your confusion, nothing else. > It is a >new way of creating reading disability, academic confusion and >learning frustration, a new way of crippling a child's linguistic >development." There is no valid research to support any of these accusations. In point of fact the research available shows just the reverse to be true. Because the traditional textbook methodology either partially or completely shuts out several types of learners, (remember the kids in high school who could barely read, but could do wonderful things in shop class, or with musical instruments? I suggest that you might want to read Howard Gardener's book MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES, to find out why) the tradtional textbook methodology increases reading problems and *decreases* the likelihood of producing fluent readers. 'academic confusion' is a nonsense term, although we've already seen your author has no aversion to misuse of words, as long as they sound impressive. Whole language provides opportunities to approach topics from a variety of directions, thus actually decreasing the students' frustration level; and finally linguistic development is a psycho-social function, of which the educational process is only one contributing factor. In other words, John, the author is clueless and assumes that you will be too, otherwise you wouldn't buy into his nonsense. > >And Blumenfeld proves everything he says with thorough, eye-opening >documentation. No, John, actually he doesn't. His entire book is written in the same manner as this excerpt I've just critiqued - it uses standard propaganda techniques including the Big Lie, misuse of terms, misdefinition of terms, and nonsense terms, in an attempt to build a case out of thin air. Once you get rid of all of his propaganda, that's still all you have left - thin air. Wake up John! You've been had! Arlin H. Adams M.Ed., NRA Life Member, Militia member, and Libertarian Curmudgeon.

I gave it a fair chance. hmm, well, that depends. IF you at least tried to do something, tried to make a change, and failed at doing so, then I guess I could agree that you 'gave it a fair chance'.

That's funny, Harry, none of the people I work with use 'white power' anything. My group includes Christians, at least one Zen practitioner, a couple of new age types, we're very ecumenical. We don't jabber a whole lot either. On the other hand, since I'm one of the folks who helped get the group started (primarily because I hadn't found one I really wanted to join, up to that point) I guess my question to you is - if you didn't like the group that was already there, why didn't you at least *try* to form one of your own - one you *would* be comfortable associating with? > When they figure out that they can't abridge other > people's "freedom" without abridging their own, maybe > they'll get somewhere.

Hi Scott, pardon for jumping in, but since frankie is apparently ignorant of the history of military chaplains, I'd just like to interject that the history of armed chaplains extends at *least* back to to WWII. Y'see my dad was an Army chaplain with one of the combat engineer groupss which helped recapture New Guinea. He, and all of his fellow chaplains were required by general orders to go armed at all times. Good thing, too, as he had to USE said firearm defensively on several occaisions.

I doubt there's anyone among the militia members here on m.a.m. who hasn't repeatedly called, written, or faxed their congresscritter, handed out leaflets, done volunteer work, all of that. Once the system proved that it had become almost totally unresponsive, slowly, and for some of us painfully, we became aware that armed resistance may well be the only effective alternative left. I dunno, I guess it's just that, for most of us, running away isn't seen as a positive option. > I also wasted several hundred dollars in donations, > copies, transcripts, etc. Hmm, I guess it depends on who you donated to, can't really comment on that, other than to say that even though I live just above the poverty level, I still send a hundred bucks or so the NRA every year...not because I think they can rescue the situation all by themselves, but because any organization which stands up for individual rights makes it that much harder for the statists to operate. I guess I think of it as putting my money where my mouth is, you know? As far as the 'copies, transcripts, etc' go, again, I'm uncertain of exactly what you purchased, but I would ask you if, had you not gotten that material, would you be as aware of the problems facing us as you are now? Would you have known to your current degree of certainty just how corrupt and evil portions of our government have become? We pay for knowledge in different ways, not always with money, but as long as we learn from our expenditures, I'm not at all sure we can call them a complete waste of effort. > Although, I have to admit, I did get to see the real > FLIR video out of it all.

Well, okay, maybe that guy behind the tree is just there to report on our conversation, so I guess that only leaves you and me, eh?:-) More seriously though, I would ask you to stop and think for a moment - whether or not you like it, you *are* a role model. For the young, those less fortunate, those who have perhaps begun to realize that something has gone terribly wrong in the world, but aren't quite sure yet what to do about it - those folks. THOSE are the people who are looking around, trying to find examples, trying to learn from the actions of others, the best way to deal with this current mess that we're in. Here you are, an older, successful guy, someone who looks and acts quite knowledgable about the situation. So tell me, Harry, what do such folks learn from watching you? What does your example teach them? > Charles Duke. Donated money. My most humble appologies for misunderstanding. > You know what's really funny?

Harry, I used to work for an INTELLIGENCE organization...do you have any IDEA of the level of garbage people in the movement threw at me when I first got involved? And yes, I *still* have short hair. And yes I still wear white socks some times...except NOW they're white BOOT socks. > Seriously, what kind of deal is it where *I* get > shafted by both sides, when I'm really tired of both sides, > and when I could be plundered the system for some good cash?

In other words you were taking every available action you could think of, and learning that those sorts of actions were no longer effective. Just like the rest of us, you were learning from your mistakes. C'mon Harry, everybody makes mistakes, and the ones you made are the same ones WE all made. The lessons you learned were the lessons WE learned as well - that's why we've all, in the end, found ourselves here. > Actually, this is true.

But that doesn't make it any less valid as an ideal, as a goal for which to strive. > It's taken me several years to figure it out, but > the great majority of hte population doesn't believe > in equal rights. They claim to, but they don't. The majority of the population doesn't understand what equal rights actually entail. They certainly don't understand that equal rights *also* require equal responsibilities. Obviously, they can't *do* something they don't currently comprehend. But that doesn't mean that they can't learn. My experience has been that people learn these sorts of things best by being exposed to consistent examples - what do you think? > The great majority of the population doesn't believe > in honesty. I certainly couldn't say *what* the great majority of the population believe, since as we just discussed, most of them don't understand the real implications of much of what they *claim* to believe. I can, however, say that the people with whom I willingly associate value honesty highly, else I would not go near them. > There *are* posted rules, but if you play > by them, you end up bitter and poor.

I guess my question in this instance, Harry, is this: whose rules are *you* playing by? > I would wish that we had a real American culture in > the country, but quite frankly, we don't. I absolutely > don't believe it anymore. Culture is something that happens when people come together and form real, supportive, communities. In many places no such real communities exist. Therefore the only semblance of culture is some sort of destructive, self-involved, hedonistic temporary construct. I would certainly classify NYC as such a place. Good heavens, large portions of THIS metropolitan area (DC) are also that way...but that doesn't excuse me from working with *my* friends to build the kind of community to which *we* aspire...I guess you'd call it an American community - I know we sure do. > Don't knock running until you try it.

Any idea why that might be? > Sure, the ideas matter. But not to the bulk of the > population. Harry, right now the bulk of the population doesn't even know what the ideas, and ideals, of freedom are! They've been indoctrinated against them for a long, long, time. 25 years ago, when I was in high school, there was a musical group known as The Fifth Dimension - you may have heard of them. One of the songs they recorded was a portion of the Declaration of Independence, set to music - The part that begins with the words "We hold these truths...". One Sunday, they sang that song as part of the half time show for a football game - the network was subsequently innundated by phone calls from angry viewers wanting to know why they'd allowed *communist* propaganda on the air. That was a quarter of a century ago. The point of all this, Harry is that much of the struggle which lies before us is NOT a contest of arms (though it may indeed come to that) but a process of EDUCATION. In as much as this is so, we, in our capicity as the militias, are at *least* as much teachers as we are fighters. > The bulk of the population are inherently dishonest, > but desperately trying to convince themselves that > they're not. This, I cannot speak to, as I am not empowered to judge their moral values - only to maintain my own. > Why should *I* get killed defending a bunch of clowns > who *deserve* to be plundered by an evil government? Well, I can't answer that either, since I don't hang out with that sort of individual. If I have to die, it will be in defense of my friends, who make up the community of which I am a part. Maybe the situation is such, that what you really need to do is find a more constructive community...but then I think I've mentioned that already. > It's not a question of "giving up ethics". It's > a matter of adopting ethics that work. The only > purpose for ethics in a society is to enhance the > survival value of its members. ah well, here we stand in very different spaces, you and I. For I hold that the only purpose of ethics in a community are to operationalize the moral values of the community members. > If my "ethics" endanger my survival, what good > are they? If survival means constantly running, living in anger and fear, what good is that? > I refuse to be exploited anymore on the basis of > an ethical heritage that isn't working. No one can exploit us against our will, Harry. It is always a choice whether we allow someone power over us, or not. Anything less is an abrogation of individual responsibility. > That's a good question. Probably because I have > no desire to be a "leader". May I ask why you would not wish to be a leader? > I've found, over the > past few years, that I don't particularly like > people in general. Ah, here my question is: people in general, or simply those you associate with currently? > It's like watching a bunch of robots going through > the motions. Do you think Holloman can *think*? Hmm, if you mean that in the sense of 'is he currently using his intellect in a critical, analytical fashion' then I would agree that he is not. But he's young, Harry, and he's been very heavily indoctrinated - we can all see that. Yet I believe he has the capacity to think. Our challenge with here, then, is to confront him in ways that may force him to exercise that capacity. > I don't think Pittcavage can, either. Ah, well now, pittcavage is another kind of a beastie altogether. He *can* think. It's just that he's in continual self-inflicted pain. His low self image, which he externalizes through his pitiful attempts at snobbery, makes him incapable of considering himself to be an acceptable human being. In order to off-set this, he has taken on the impossible task of attempting to single-handedly stop the movement. Of course we continue to grow apace, which means that his self image continues to lower, his self-inflicted pain continues to grow, and he struggles even harder, wallowing along toward his inevitable selfdestruction. The only question in my mind, is whether he has intentionally chosen this evil road, or whether the pain, even at the start, was so intense as to blind him to the basic concepts of right and wrong. I doubt we'll ever know. > In fact, > as near as I can estimate, at least half the > population can't think; they just react with their > programming. I wont debate the fact that a large portion of the population is running on autopilot, but as I pointed out concerning Holloman, that doesn't mean they couldn't be educated. > If they've spent even 1/10 of the time I have, > it should be goddamn SELF EVIDENT by now. Certainly, had they understood that to which they were exposed. Part of that educational process I was talking about, before, involves helping them to understand the problems, even helping to understand that there ARE problems...it's all part of the same struggle, Harry. > They're programmed.

To run away again? Sam is not the Beast itself, merely it's current incarnation. You've run from the Beast before, Harry, you've said as much yourself. It wasn't Sam last time, was it? Yet it was still the Beast. It wont be Sam next time, but it will still be the Beast. It feeds on fear Harry, the more people flee, the more it follows them. The *only* thing which hold it at bay, is when people turn and fight. Not everyone wins Harry, and not all the time, but fighting is really our only chance...and although it may indeed be cliche', I, at least, would still rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

In case you didn't notice, Michael, only something like 29% of the electorate voted in the last election. Even more importantly, the elected officials at the federal level actually make up less than 10 percent of the total government. The other 90% consists primarily of lifer bureaucrats, with a thin frosting of political appointees.

Already proven such a system does not exist in this country. See above. Now that we've proven that, here's a little question for you: If people become aware that their government is no longer responsive to their needs, ignores all attempts at reform, and in fact is acting in a fashion which directly inhibits their natural rights, seemingly moving to increasing levels of totalitarianism on a yearly basis should they: a. sit around and pretend that voting alone will make it better? b. bend over and stick their head in the sand, so that when the government does it to them they at least wont see it coming. or c. take whatever steps by whatever means they deem neccessary to secure their rights, and their liberties. If you answered a. or b. then I'm sure that you will have no problem finding a job with the current regime. If you answered c. welcome to the resistance >Well it certainly is a relief to see that you are not as stubborn in >your prejudgments as are some of your cohorts.

It's important to try to remember the difference: Football is a spectator sport, real life is NOT. In real life the OKC bombers committed an atrocity, nothing more or less. That was not a defensive reaction, and it most certainly was not carried out by members of the local community. It was therefore, by definition, NOT a militia action. >If you were in fact merely becoming a *political* force, I would be >happy for you (and would probably spend a lot less time in this >newsgroup).

No John, you have not. you may *think* you have, in that you understand so very little of what we are discussing that it may in fact all appear to be the same to you, but you have seen nothing from union hacks like my critique of goals 2000, or my critiques of OBE which have appeared in this very newsgroup in the last year. Look, I realize that you feel threatened by the fact that I directly contradict your antisemitic propaganda. Of course you *could* simply admit that you were wrong, that you really don't know what you're talking about, but that solution doesn't assuage your ego sufficiently. Thus you try to convince yourself that I am somehow a member of some superduper conspiracy model, one that, by the way, was stolen directly from the nazidiots, who in turn, stole it from the antisemitic morons who wrote 'the protocols of the elders of zion' who in THIER TURN stole it from medeaval sources. If you would only study a little history you would see you've fallen for the same propaganda that's been used for over 700 years, it was false then, and it's false now. You are a ringer, friend. > A Quiseling. > A phoney "militia-member" sent here to disarm and disinform the >public. > The war you fight is against truth, against life, against freedom >and our Constitution. > You are no Libertarian. You are an Extremist-Leftist fraud. I stand on my record. What I have written is readily available in the DejaNews index. If you are so confused that, following your reading of my accumulated postings, you *still* cannot tell what a Libertarian believes, then I suggest you contact the Libertarian Party for further instruction. In the meantime, you discredit only yourself by accusing me of things which are so obviously false that your lies are readily apparent to all. > And yet...isn't it odd that you defend the NEA programs which have >and are destroying our nation. You haven't been paying attention again, John. I have been a consistent critic of the Goals 2000 program since it's inception. Also, I have on several occaisions IN THIS VERY NEWSGROUP spoken to the perversion of the performance based origins of OBE by the leftist leadership of the NEA. Anyone who has been reading this newsgroup for more than a couple of months knows this...at least anyone who has been paying attention...obviously John, YOU are not among that number. >: I'm also a Libertarian, and a militia member, to claim that I am 'part of >: the system' is not only absurd, but irrational. > > And while you claim the above your words reflect strict Leftist >agit-prop, disinformation and at the same time you mount it all on the >usual well-rehearsed phoney moral plane. John you have yet to do anything other than call me names. Show me one factual piece of evidence which supports your perverse notion that I am not a Libertarian...just one John...one little fact...or admit that the reason you insist on calling me names is because you HAVE no factual evidence. You have no explanation for the discontinuities, half-truths and outright lies which your antisemitic propaganda contains and which I consistently point out in front of the world. You have no explanation for any of these things other than to call anyone who disagrees with you a 'leftist' . Wrong answer John. I have given you facts. I have corrected your half truths, your lies, your discontinuities...and I will continue to do so EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU POST THEM IN THIS FORUM. Face it John, this is not where you belong. You need to be over with your fellow antisemites in one of the 'white power' forums...you know, with all the other little nazidiots. Antisemitism, and EVERY OTHER FORM OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION is in direct opposition to the underlying principles of the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. No exceptions, No excuses. As long as you continue to espouse your antisemitic nonsense, then you most assuredly cannot claim to be supporting the ideals of the founding fathers; even to attempt such a thing marks you as a complete hypocrit. > If facts fail you, if logic fails you, if the law fails you then >attack the messenger and beg for sympathy as handicapped. John I've repeatedly pointed out the factual inconsistencies, and logical fallicies of your arguments. None of my assertions have ever been contradicted by you - you haven't even attempted to answer them. All you do is call me names, and impugn my motives...and you say *I* haven't stuck to the facts??? sheesh! IF you had posessed a fact to your name, you could have at least attempted a rebuttal, but you never have. Why is that, John? Could it be because you really don't understand what we're attempting to discuss, and thus have to resort to name calling?

No, that wasn't the 'royal we' John, when I shifted to the plural it was intended to indicate that I was speaking of libertarians generally - in other words, providing the libertarian philosophical background neccessary for you to understand my reactions.

You argue, I debate. I have no wish to argue with you verbally - I'm doing just fine here. I will simply bide my time, criticizing your posts, and making sure the world sees them for the foolishness they truly are.

John, I'm the one who has consistently shown the factual and logical inaccuracies in YOUR posts. You have rebutted NONE of my critique, but have consistently called me names and accused me of lying. That's ALL you've done. You are the one who has repeatedly demonstrated that you have no real evidence in support of your beliefs, and yet you still seem to cling to them...and you call *me* brainwashed??

John, I've consistently shown the gaping, semi-truck sized holes in your so-called world wide conspiracy, and you haven't plugged any of those holes yet.

It was I who pointed out that while this was true for military weapons, due to production limitations in the interior of the country, personal firearms were quite common. I also pointed out that personal firearms, while used by militia units in the early part of the Revolutionary War, were phased out after the French began actively supplying military muskets. In point of fact, the military muskets used by both sides in the Revolution were smoothbores - their effective *accurate* range against a man sized target was only about 75 yards. While this was this was certainly comparable to the smoothbores carried by some of the poorer militia members, the rifles carried by others far out classed them. In point of fact up until just before the Civil War, civilian firearms available to anyone generally outclassed their military counterparts. Even in the post-war years, with the expansion into the west, the military was still issuing muzzle loaders, and then single shot Springfields, while the civilians often carried Winchesters, Remingtons, and Henrys, some of which were capable of sustained fire at three to five times the rate of their military cousins.

Treason is defined by the Constitution as either taking up arms against the United States, or giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Those are the ONLY two things which constitute treason in this country. Redecorating the national flag is illegal, but treason it ain't. 2. In point of fact, I believe if you check thoroughly that, while national flags are not supposed to have fringe, there are historical examples of exceptions to this in the case of the military, going back at least as far as the Civil War. Since almost no one (including judges) knows all of the laws concerning display of flags, banners, and ensigns I'd imagine most folks just think it's 'pretty'. All that being said, I believe that the gold fringe *does* make it a military banner, which of course raises the question as to why one might find it in a civilian courtroom...the federal court system is buying Army surplus now?? I dunno...

Hmm, well, I've always considered Britain and France a bit on the socialist side, but I wouldn't actually have called either of them 'harsh' until this last British anti-terrorism law went through. Germany, nope, might be a whole bunch of other things, but I'm pretty sure 'communist' isn't among them. Australia, heh, I'd love to see what happens the next time you call an Aussie a communist, really I would! Could it be that, in the case of the PRC, the state department weenies are just a might afraid of a country with over a *billion* people in it? Could it also be that Taiwan, up until it started to realize that we just might NOT step in and save their bacon, was about as democratic as Japan, which is to say, hardly at all? Oh and hey! how about those Japanese communists! Man, they're something else, aren't they? >4) Has it occurred to you that as soon as any "conservative" politician > reaches Washington D.C. they suddenly forget their own beliefs and > begin to rob us of our freedom and money just as fast as, or faster > than, the Liberals?

And speaking of hot and cold, if my room airconditioner blows cold air, which it does, why is the back side of it hot all the time???? y'know, some of this stuff really doesn't add up. >6) Short of violence what is the best way to change the direction of the > world today? well, the '94 election was a good start...all that danged grassroots activism started to pay off.
