I could wish for a proper use of the language.

That being said, FUCK YOU, Count.

Governments start wars.

The PEOPLE start revolutions.

Governments call people that revolt 'dissidents' and 'traitors' and 'threats to Homeland Security' and 'armed separatists' (if they were disarmed, they would be called 'dissenters' and 'tin-foil-hat-wearing left/right/radical conspiracy theorists' and pepper-sprayed and electroshocked and shot and killed and rounded up and tortured in to making false confessions and drugged and experimented on and castrated and stuff).

I CALL PEOPLE who use the word 'JINGOISTIC' and 'PATRIOTISM' in the same breath LEFTIST STATIST EDUCATED IDIOTS. TRULY, you do not grasp the agenda that is being portrayed, and wish to derail any thought of armed revolution against the corrupt and unConstitutional leadership at all sectors in this former Constitutional United States. YOUR OWN educators and the shadow government that you speak FOR coined the terms to refer to those such as yourself in that 'spycraft'. The Framers had a term as well. They liked to call it 'SEDITION' against the principles and ideals of the free people who drafted and signed the Articles Of Confederation, Declaration Of Independence, and Constitution For The United States when one introduces ridicule to the idea of the truth and the very framework of liberty from centralized rule in a colonial or occupational fashion (as witnessed by the actions of the people inhabiting Washington D.C.; which is NOT, I repeat, NOT within the boundaries of the United States).

Did I forget to say FUCK, YOU, COUNT? if you can't see my finger, I'll turn it up a little for you.

Checklist for the so-called American Revolution 2.0

Current majority as a population group (mainly ages): senior citizens, baby-boomers plus the disabled (approximately 100 million)

Skilled on urban warfare? NO

Skilled in non-conventional warfare? NO

Skilled in asymmetrical warfare? NO

Skilled in non-restricted warfare? NO

Type of weapons they posses: semi automatic

Younger generations of Americans have no loyalty or allegiance to the United States per se. This population group seem to be more identified with global governance and less prone to challenge the Sovereign. The author of such laughable motto wants only to sell a product by evoking jingoistic patriotism (a clever marketing technique indeed).

PS. MontgomeryScott seems not ot realize that the Constitution defines Americans as Financial Instruments, less than human beings (and paradoxically, lower animals have more rights than these people).

It would take a long time to kill 100 million.  During that time a lot of them, being vets and all, would be teaching and learning new tricks.  Younger generations might be a bit leary of killing grandpa and uncle Bill for the sake of some stranger in DC.  I don't know but I've been told a statist has no soul. 

Win or lose I would choose the side that is right.  I suppose you will run away or choose the side you think is more likely to win.  At the end of days we will both be dead but you will have lived for no purpose at all.  Enjoy your time.

PS - What makes you think you will be selected to be one of the 500 million survivors?  Odds are strongly in favor of you being murdered too.  Again, enjoy your time.

you are correct that it would take a long time for any armed group to go out and kill 100 million people. But a virus on the other hand could do the job much more quickly with very little effort or money and resources used. The other bonus is unlike conventional or even nuclear or chemical warfare a viral pandemic would leave much if not all of the infrastructure intact. cremate the bodies and then spray everything down with lysol or bleach and you have millions of homes, farms and industrial areas ready for the survivors to come in and make the country they way they want it.

With this Ebola outbreak we are just now seeing the virus gain a foothold outside of Africa for the first time with the first human cases being reported in the UK and US. The timing of those cases couldn't be much worse or better depending on how you are looking at it. The cold and flu season is just around the corner, with Ebola festering in the background it would be the perfect time for it to spread like wildfire in a couple months. Schools are going to be back in session next month, you will have millions of students from around the world packed together in dorms and classrooms spreading the virus, a lot of the wont immediately think " oh ive got Ebola!" they will just think its a common cold or the flu and not take it seriously until its too late and they've spread it to half their classmates. If someone didn't have Ebola but just a cold or flu and then they were exposed to Ebola they would be really screwed as their immune system would already be majorly stressed dealing with another virus, and would have a higher chance of death.

Now I don't totally expect all that to happen but the odds are increasing that it might turn into a perfect storm of SHTF.

At the risk of being destroyed by Red Down arows, I would like to ask you a question. And a serious one, based soley on the reponse you had given (this is not to say I disagree with your premise*).

What is the definition of revolution? And by logical extention, how does your use of 'warfare' fit into it? 

And a follow up statement that runs counter to your criteria. One word, or rather a name: Gandhi. 

All things are possible. 



*full disclosure: I did not down arrow you. There is some truth in your statement (ie younger generations).

ghandhi was successful because he was fighting a rational (as much as can be) govt.    If he were fighting mao's china for instance, he would be a historical footnote.    Our present govt would give a rats ass about ghandhi.

It is truly astonishing to me to see how comfortable we have become with the notion of armed rebellion.  Just a few years ago anyone who suggested even talking about it was a loony. 

The government has done the job I predicted: pushing people off the fence, into the camp of the resistance.  Bravo!

More and more Americans are abandoning the idea of peaceful political change.  What is left?

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

Not that I'd ever actually use it, you NSA motherfucks. I just got pissed when your LEADER banned AK-47's. It's a matter of principle. And the fact that 17 countries that seized arms from their people in the 20th century killed 260 million of their OWN PEOPLE - more than all the wars combined.

Had to make a drive to southern NM recently, and I tried to make time to go to the Eager, AZ. cemetary where William Milton 'Bill' Cooper is entombed. My timeline didn't allow for this luxury. 1,800 miles (one way). The TSA can KISS MY ASS. Cheaper to drive this far, by the way (Diesel is 'only' about $3.80 on the trip, and I averaged 22.43 MPG @80MPH, so it cost about $500.00 LESS than flying down). The old Dodge/Cummins 12-valve second-gen Bosch 3/4 ton new body-girl still rides nice (and the A/C still blows ice cubes after a quarter-million miles without any service; actually reading 224,000 on the ODO right now).

The border is literally falling apart.

The CSA is but a memory now.

You'd best get down and visit while you still can.

The time will soon come when the Federals push too far, and the people stand up in opposition. Unfortunately, the Federals have the weapons, and the people will most likely be SLAUGHTERED. they keep trying to incite a revolt on smaller scales (USAPATRIOT, TSA, DHS, NSA, BLM, etc. of recent activity), and as of yet have met almost NO resistance. The people are mostly compliant now (most even to the point of servitude or even death). By the time that most realize that it acually COULD happen HERE, it will have already transpired. GOOD GOD, what about the fucking BORDER? JESUS CHRIST! Alas, I am but one (they will keep saying).

Where will the line be drawn, and when?

There were two Captains of the U.S.S. Enterprise. One was Kirk (behind his back, the crew called him 'Captain Fattie'). The other was some Frenchie (with a strangely British accent) by the name of Picard (we coined the phrase 'Captain Baldie'). Of course these were terms of endearment. Picard gave a speech one time:

STRANGE. This video clip of the computer programmer that testifies under oath in court in Florida that computers are rigging the elections in the CONUS came up as a suggestion in my search on Gookletube. Interesting, isn't it? I remember watching this post in 2005, by the way:

How many people in the United States ACTUALLY voted for the people in the last, say, 4 selections or so that are ACTUALLY holding office?


Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

The real question (and ONLY way to solve the problem CORRECTLY) is to correctly define, identify, and prosecute 'THOSE'. In the case of VOTE-RIGGING, WHO in the CONUS authorized the contract to write the source code that runs the voting machines; and WHAT CORPORATION (DIEBOLD) is responsible?

DIE-fucking-BOLD. DIE BOLD. WHAT lobbyist group ACTUALLY WROTE the legislation that Congress PASSED and the president SIGNED into 'LAW', that allowed this vote-rigging to happen? WHICH congressmen voted FOR this 'billl' without READING IT because they were 'too busy' and were told by their 'SENIORS' that the deal might be made to 'TRADE VOTES'? DIEBOLD got BIG by writing the software that rigs the electronic gaming venues in fucking Las Vegas, for God's sake! The name 'Harry Reid' comes to mind here...

I'd shoot that motherfucker dead in less than a heartbeat (given the proper opportunity) because HE IS A TRAITOR to his nation of birth and to the people who inhabit it (including his MOTHER, who he FUCKED OVER by allowing himself to be bought by multinational corporate Mafia interests).

Are you REALLY 'truly astonished' at my statement, SWRichmond?

Oh, I forgot. 'Armed Rebellion' is simply a 'notion' of yours. A stinky pussy needs what are called 'notions' (perfumes) to cover up the smell of promiscuity. Mathematical certainties in a matrix of action and reaction in real time cannot POSSIBLY be called 'PREDICTIONS' (I hate to break this to you). NO SHIT: The people are getting pissed off.


If you open-carried a Glock 9 or a modded AR down the street in Richmond, VA. (I assume by your screen-name that this is where you are from), WHAT WOULD HAPPEN? HELL, if you 'conceal-carried', what would happen?

,... the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

'Summer soldiers' speak and pontificate and postulate and make loud noises from their easy-chairs; but when it comes to action; they usually retreat and fail to stand up; not wishing to give up what little comfort they still are 'granted' by the governments that they still hold fealty to.

'...that among these inaleanable rights that God has granted are the right to LIFE, LIBERTY, and the PERSUIT OF HAPINESS;...' (that's a 'paraphrase').

The time for sitting on the fence is just about OVER. Choose THIS DAY which god you serve.

If I open carried a Glock, people would laugh at me, and rightly so.

Anything else?  Some people react a bit, but mostly not at all.  Conceal;ed carry is, welll, concealed.

What you say is true...  We have become a tinder box...

All we need is a spark to get it started.  Even if it's only 1% of the guns we have in the U.S.....  With 300,000,000 of them.... that would still be 3,000,000 guns seeking justice.  We may be a way off yet.  Things would have to get pretty bad...  as in, most folks would have to have more to gain than to lose by doing it....   Of course, that's still just a spark away with the way this country is currently being run.

Let's hope it doesn't come to that but, I fear it will.  I don't advocate it but, what I want won't matter much in the scheme of things.

SWRichmond, what is left is peace. No war, no revolution. Change is inevitable, but a population which ascends to creates peace wins by default. You cannot fight that which will not fight back. The people in power NEED us to produce for them, but we have no need for them. They are a convenience we have been brainwashed to believe are necessary. 

Once we refuse to obey, refuse to produce, refuse to pay and go about our lives defining trade and exchange and security in our own terms, the game is over. 

Always glad to read your comments. Cheers.

My name is Bill from Bombay.

It would be imperitive that I speak to the woman of the house. Do you have a signifiant other that I might converse with? It would be greatly beneficial to you that you allow me to converse with the female of the family.


That is a shame. Do you realize that she could be making 9.876 dollars per day by simply giving me some pertinent information? This information will not be shared by anyone except those in this LLC company that will give her further offers to make even more rupees and dollars. if you would allow me to speak with her...


(Actual phone conversation with me, and recited from memory, circa 1998. I was the one who said 'NO'. and the 'CLICK' was the telephone being disconnected at MY end by ME)
