The last scary post....Then I'm off for warmer, happier places. You all stay safe now, ya hear?

A marine tells his local community what is going on. Is anyone paying attention?

This might alarm you for a moment because the gentleman certainly has a background and the connections to speak with authority, but then again it is so very, very easy, and rather attractive, to push it aside as utterly impossible. This is America. Things like that do not happen here. They happen in Argentina. They happen in Cuba. They happen in Russia. They happen in Germany. They happen in Italy. They happen in just about every nation in Africa. But they do not happen here!

But then there's this:

On Saturday, Terry M. Hestilow, a retired United States Army Captain from Fort Worth, Texas, posted a letter on Facebook that he wrote to Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, warning that the Department of Homeland Security is preparing to go to war with the citizens of the United States.

"It is with gravest concern that I write to you today concerning the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by that agency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America," his letter began.

But to reassure you, if any of this is beginning to sound a little scary, I must remind you of how our Bestest Ever President Peace Prize cautioned us:

So don't worry your little heads about any of this. President Peevish has told us that we should just trust them...or we're going to have some real problems.

Federal Police in Grand Junction, CO

Today this was posted on my Facebook wall by a friend. It was accompanied by his written statement of what happened.

So, as I was about to park, I saw this vehicle, so I quickly got out of my car and took a picture as it drove by. As the driver saw me do this, he slammed on the brakes, and asked, "Do you have a problem?" To which I replied, "Just taking a picture. Is that illegal now?" He then eeked forward a few feet and stayed there in the middle of the road for about a minute and a half until a car approached him from behind, forcing him to move... This, ladies and gentlemen, is a FEDERAL POLICE FORCE. Here. In Grand Junction. Feel safe yet?


Only I'm not kidding and this is really getting scary.


  1. Nothing to worry about as long you aren't in one of the categories on the list. I'm not sure exactly how many I fall into, in addition to "yesses" there's a lot of "No. But how they probably define it, yes."

    1. I don't even want to count them all up. Suffice it to say, I'm on enough to get me rounded up, if not killed.

      Oh well.....

  2. That's the thing isn't it? What's the threat? What's the threat driving this? How many running gun battles with Al Qaeda or the Mexican drug cartels have the average city law enforcement agency had to fight in the last 20 years? None. So why are we arming civilian law enforcement like military soldiers?

    1. Steve, that's EXACTLY the point. Dealing with terrorism is largely an intel business to foil intermittent and isolated attacks that are very specific. It does NOT require militarized police and billions of bullets. That's what you need for WAR, not terrorism.

      Something ain't right.
