DHS Video Characterizes White Americans as Most Likely Terrorists : http://www.infowars.com/dhs-video-characterizes-white-americans-as-most-likely-terrorists/....Is it getting weird enough for you yet?

    Ah yes, those nasty ol' white terrorists, except for the muslims of course. Eveyone knows that Islam is the religion of peace. When they cut your head off, they always do it peacefully.

    Reston, the security of America and every single American is every single American's business. Unless of course you're suggesting the laughably ridiculous notion That the "the state" will protect us?

    As always, Black's Law Dictionary hits the nail squarely on the head. T.Ray, JD

    This, however, could be misconstrued to mean the militia is the National Guard, which obviously, it isn't. How come we didn't get militia training in high school? Seems an appropriate task. The Swiss manage to train all of its male citizens, why haven't the States kept this as a priority?
