Dinner With The Militia
(illustration by Oleg Volk)
Mike points to a short and sweet article re the original Tea Party groups.
I like to ask one question and make one observation when the "M word" comes up:
1) What is this 'militia' thing about which you are so adamant that you are not? Please describe it in detail, given that you are training with your personal firearms to dispatch human predators at ranges from arm's-length to several hundred yards, along with the moving and communication skills needed to do those tasks effectively.
2) The people I know are engineers, accountants, homeschooling parents, housewives, lawyers, doctors, schoolteachers, truck drivers, students, retired folks, IT professionals, machinists, gun dealers, pastors, bankers, and every other walk of life. They may not use the "M word", but they sure as shooting are the militia, as the Founders understood that term.
