  • There is such a thing as too low.
Now consider this.  How many of our brothers and sisters under arms believe exactly like this man but do not say anything at this time because it goes against their duty to speak openly against our leaders (yes, I use the term very loosely) while they wear the uniform?  I find this makes me a little more cautiously optimistic.

Our goverment may be able to count on the UN for support, but they won't have the support of their own.

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

What got me was the comments, and all the people stating when they took their oath, that it had no expiration date, and they would defend it. Inspiring

I wont post what I wrote to my congress critters  8)

Lets say if they have a list going I'm on it now  ;D

Ya know, the more I think about it the madder I get.  Our motto, what we believed down in our heart, went something like this "ye though I walk through the Valley of Death we will fear no evil...for we are the baddest mother strawberry pickers in the Valley".

wow - that reporter was quick on the draw when he accused David Gregory.

but he was calm and stated facts.  love the last exchange
CNN: But the law is the law - if it becomes law, you are just willing to break it?
Marine: Unconstitutional laws aren't laws.
CNN: uh, ok.  I'll just leave it at that

great response to the press. :D
“There is no such thing as pure good or pure evil, least of all in people. In the best of us there are thoughts or deeds that are wicked, and in the worst of us, at least some virtue. An adversary is not one who does loathsome acts for their own sake. He always has a reason that to him is justification. My cat eats mice. Does that make him bad? I don't think so, and the cat doesn't think so, but I would bet the mice have a different opinion.”

Isn't there something in the law or a court decision or somewhere that says you can't be prosecuted for refusal to follow an unconstitutional law?
