I Wonder If This Qualifies Me As An Enemy Of The State?
Vir Speluncae Catholicus - Prisoner #87,024

We better read this damn article pretty friggin' closely. Does any of this pertain to YOU?

And yes, there are some serious nut-jobs out there. But some of the criteria that define (for lack of a better phrase) domestic terrorists, are pretty Big Brother-ish.

Here's just a bit from; (Emphasis mine.)

The Radical Polarization of Law Enforcement

Patriots, Christians and concerned citizens are increasingly in the cross hairs of the U.S. intelligence community, and battle lines are being quietly drawn that could soon pit our own law enforcement and military forces against us.

A February 20 report entitled "The Modern Militia Movement" was issued by the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) that paints mainstream patriotic Americans as dangerous threats to law enforcement and to the country.

Operating under the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the MIAC is listed as a Fusion Center that was established in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice.

Instead of focusing on actual criminal incidents of "home-grown" terrorism, the MAIC report instead lists issues that it believes are common to the threats it perceives. Thus, Americans involved with the following issues are highly suspect:

-- "Ammunition Accountability Act" - requiring each bullet to to be serialized and registered to the purchaser.

-- "Anticipation of the economic collapse of the US Government" - Prominent scholars and economists are openly debating the bankruptcy and insolvency of the United States government.

-- "Possible Constitutional Convention (Con Con)" - 32 states have called for a Constitutional Convention to force Congress and the Executive Branch into a balanced budget, but many are concerned that if called, Con Con would be taken over by hostile interests who would introduce Amendments that are harmful to national Sovereignty.

-- "North American Union" - MIAC states that "Conspiracy theorists claim that this union would link Canada, the United States, and Mexico. The NAU would unify its monetary system and trade the dollar for the AMERO. Associated with this theory is concern over a NAFTA Superhighway, which would Fast Track trade between the three nations. There is additional concern that the NAU would open up the border causing security risks and free movement for immigrants."

-- "Universal Service Program" - "Statements made by President Elect Obama and his chief of staff have led extremists to fear the creation of a Civilian Defense Force. This theory requires all citizens between the age of 18 and 25 to be forced to attend three months of mandatory training."
(This is exactly what Obama and Rahm Emmanuel have repeatedly stated on national TV, and thus is hardly a theory.)

-- "Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)" - This includes human implantation, but the larger concern is universal id cards and personal property identification that can be read electronically without the bearer's knowledge.

On the last page of the MIAC report, a section listing Political Paraphernalia (flags and symbols) states, (You'll see here that many of the "Militia Flags" include flags of the Founding Fathers.)

"Militia members most commonly associate with 3rd party political groups. It is not uncommon for militia members to display Constitutional Party, Campaign for Campaign for Liberty, or Libertarian material (You know... stuff like the Constitution of The United States of America) . These members are usually supporters of former Presidential Candidate: Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr. or Libertarian material. These members are usually supporters of former Presidential Candidate: Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr.

Militia members commonly display picture, cartoons, bumper stickers that contain anti-government rhetoric. Most of this material will depict the FRS, IRS, FBI, ATF, CIA, UN, Law Enforcement, and the 'New World Order' in a derogatory manor (sic). Additionally, Racial, anti-immigration, and anti-abortion, material may be displayed by militia members."
(They'll get my NOBAMA bumper sticker when they pry it from my dead, cold hands.)

Fear ye, all troopers

For unsuspecting law enforcement personnel, this MIAC training document polarizes unsuspecting officers to fear peaceful, law-abiding citizens and greatly increases the risk of armed confrontation. For instance, a routine traffic stop would be escalated if the officer observes a Ron Paul or Chuck Baldwin bumper sticker on the rear bumper of the car. The mere possession of printed material such as the U.S. Constitution or Bill of Rights would be viewed as subversive, even though most officers are required to take an oath to "defend and uphold the Constitution of the United States" as a condition of their employment.

The Columbia Daily Tribune (Columbia, Missouri) reports this concern from local resident Tim Neal, who apparently fits the MIAC's "Modern Militia" profile:

"If a police officer is pulling me over with my family in the car and he sees a bumper sticker on my vehicle that has been specifically identified as one that an extremist would have in their vehicle, the guy is probably going to be pretty apprehensive and not thinking in a rational manner, and this guy's walking up to my vehicle with a gun."

It didn't mention it in this article, but 1 of the militant groups it warns about is anti-abortionists. I guess all those Rosaries we are praying is seen as subversive.

As I said over on my blog, if they want it they will have to pry my rosary from my cold dead hands.

PS Don't forget that according to that disgrazia at Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, they are no longer domestic terrorists, they are domestic perpetrators of 'man-caused' disasters.

(As I plant tongue firmly in cheek). Gee, "man-caused" sounds awfully sexist to me. I'm feeling hurt & A 2nd class HUMAN BEING because she is implying that us men are the cause of all these disasters. Is she implying women are incapible of causing disasters?

Sarcasm off
