Government Tyranny Is Not Raising The Co-Pay On Your Flomax Perscription

Well, today is the anniversary of the bombing of the Murrah building in Oklahoma City in which 168 people died including 19 children under the age of 6 because Timothy McVeigh thought the federal government was too big. Nobody asked the 19 kids what they thought.

And what better way to celebrate this example of democracy in action than to strap on a piece and head down to the local park because nothing says deliberation, compromise and consensus like heavily armed white men with penis issues.

Daniel Almond, a three-tour veteran of Iraq, is ready to "muster outside D.C." with several dozen other self-proclaimed patriots, all of them armed. "See, I say 'muster' 'cause that's army talk," Almond said. "that's how us soldiers talk."

Almond plans to have his pistol loaded and openly carried, his rifle unloaded and slung to the rear, a bandoleer of magazines containing ammunition draped over his polo-shirted shoulder. "I was going to wear my old uniform too, but I've put on a little weight."

The Atlanta area real estate agent organized the rally because he is upset about health-care reform, climate control, bank bailouts, drug laws and what he sees as President Obama's insistence on and the Democratic Congress's capitulation to a "totalitarian socialism" that tramples individual rights.When asked if differing views on a complicated national issue like health care could be understood better while standing in a park in Virginia with guns hanging off of him, Almond said, "Probably not, but don't I look cool in this bandoleer? My mom got it for me down at Army Navy Surplus."

On the lineup are several heroes of the militia movement, including Mike Vanderboegh, who advocated throwing bricks through the windows of Democrats who voted for the health-care bill; Tom Fernandez, who has established a nationwide call tree to mobilize an armed resistance to any government order to seize firearms; and former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack, who refused to enforce the Brady law and then won a Supreme Court verdict that weakened its background-check provisions."These guys are our Jefferson, Washington and Adams," Almond said.

Or maybe your Larry, Moe and Curly. Sort of depends who you talk to.

The brandishing of weapons is "not just an important symbol" but "a reminder of who we are," said Almond. "Balding, middle aged, overweight Crackers living in a world where the KFC Double Down chicken sandwich is haute cuisine and Glen Beck is an intellectual superstar."

When they stand on the river banks and preach an activism that sounds to some like sedition, the armed demonstrators will have the full support of the federal government they fear, carefully detailed in the 26-page event permit, complete with the gun regulations of both Virginia and the Interior Department and a commitment to provide fencing, barricades and bike racks for the event.

Wait a minute. You guys are supposed to be all steely eyed patriots ready to stand up to the iron fist of oppressive government even to the point of taking up arms--which you drape all over yourselves like tinsel on a cheap Christmas tree--yet before you showed up to show civilians just what manly men you were, you asked permission? And that oppressive, evil government granted the permission? And will provide racks for your bicycles?

Ironicus, you have met your Maximus.

It makes me cringe as a Vet and a gun owner.

I was taught to never threaten anyone with a fire arm. Nor point it at anyone or anything you didn't intend to shoot.

Silly me. I guess I went to the Commie Marxist Socialist school of gun toting veterans.

Gun ownership seems like such a cool idea like drivers liscense--until you have to contend with every tard in the nation behind the wheel wondering who starting issuing liscenses from a happy meal or inside of white castle wrappers.

I served with plenty of dumb fucks and plenty of evil ones too. Respecting someone's vet status is great, but that status doesn't automatically make them a genius or a good person. It simply makes them a vet.
