Satellite tracked & inferred LED's installed that light up the view 360 degrees several hundred feet. Longwave inferred light invisible to our naked human eyes.

Best defense against them, build a Jammer that scans entire frequency spectrum several hundred times per second. Lock in & send out a Rouge signal. It will - drone crash to the ground.

You know, If the government were to try and take away all of our weapons, that would stop after about the 12th Ruby Ridge.

Yes, there is strength and safety in numbers. This is exactly why this nations needs a strong, non-political leader to ralley the population to re-take the government. If someone could organize and orchestrate a mass tax revolt, this might get Washington's attention. Well over half of taxpayer money is collected quarterly. If, say, only 5 million of these taxpayers refused to write the check for a year, would that send a message? The fed certainly cannot prosecute 5 million.

But, what if it was 50 million?

Why do they call it "common sense" when, in fact, it has become so uncommon?

That's my opinion, it outta be your's.

....re-take the government, sounds like something Bruce
Willis would do like in "The Siege".....

...organize and orchestrate a tax revolt, heck just get the
NRA to implement it and they would kill to birds with one
stone...

...I think they already pushed the masses into a paranoia
state, so I don't think adding this to the fire would work...

yea....that wouldn't work. Contrary to popular belief, they do not need to be controlled 100% of the time. They are also designed to return to base when the satellite uplink is broken. You would need to hack into it and take direct control to have any effect.

I had given thought to that scenario too.
Pre programmed to complete its mission no matter what.

Well, everyone will have to watch up in the sky then.

Alrerady everyone I know around here with an AR15 or better said they will shoot the MF's & blow them away.
I am not sure they can easily do that.

you are going to shoot down a moving aircraft around 10,000' with small arms? Hell, even if they were at 3,000' you wouldn't be able to reach it, much less hit it.

Roadster...you're spot on. Wholesale collection of firearms in this country just isn't going to happen. The Fed using the US Military on is own citizens...ain't gonna happen. Not in our lifetimes, anyway. For so many reasons that I have posted so many times before.

The one question that not a single one of these conspiracy theorists and answer is "why?" The bail out answer is "control." Bull...we are "controlled" as a population anyway. Our country is relatively safe for the average citizen because for the most part, we follow the basic rules, so why would the Fed want to poke that bee hive and risk an uncontrollable revolution? They don't and they won't.

That's funny.
I actually have an order of chickens coming.
Wife made the order.
I have to build her a New chicken coop in the spring.
Have my Brand new Milwalkee 15 amp 3-1/4 HP circular saw too. Bought last weekend. Bad ass powerfull.


When it comes down to it Roy,
if when & where, it will be multiple battles taking place at once. Every state. Ever City.
Every country House & Farm like mine.
Kinda like Vietnam War.
Big Clusterfuck.

Your ready.
Nothing New to You.

Because if they cannot control the spiraling economy and the shit collapses.. the takers are not going to "make nice" and just do without..

In a very short period a major US city fell into anarchy with the US government and state/local officials resorting to weapons confiscation, physical attacks, shooting people. Now, put that into a countrywide scenario with a major bank collapse or similar.

No matter how it is spun, the printing can't go on for ever and the steady collapse around us will accelerate. I would hope I am wrong, but there is just too much history to look back on. The TBTF banks went from being too big too fail at $3t. Now they are $11t. Who is going to bail them out this time?

...I hope some one with enough fore sight, and mathematical
equation skills would step up to the plate for the good of the
many, I knew once you gave politicians a blank check it never
goes to what it was intended for and that includes the left &
right, since I've lived in CA I've watched billions of school
dollars appropriated only to be asked for billions more the
next local election...what a bunch of Pinocchios...
