From Willowtown comes this comment from Dave.
If I had a choice between having an FBI agent as a neighbor or a militia member as a neighbor, I´d take the militia member, here´s why.
A militia man can´t kick in my door.
A militia man can´t tap my phone.
A militia man isn´t motivated to arrest me on something in order to advance his career.
A militia man´s salary, benefits and pension aren´t coercively deducted from my pay.
And in the end, if the federal government becomes oppressive and tyrannical, the militia man will be on my side, whereas the FBI agent will side with the federal government in order to continue my subjugation and cash flow for his income.
A different country heard from . . .
LATER: Just got a cell phone call from "Mad Bob," commander of the fabled hardcore but shadowy Alabama constitutional militia formation known as the Dogtown Rangers, who signs his emails "MOS 1372." His answer to the above question is somewhat different:
"Hell, the FBI man, of course."
"Why's that Mad Bob?
"So I could tap his phone, seduce his wife, corrupt his kids and piss in his swimmin' pool every morning when I got up."
For reasons of operational security, Mad Bob has never had his picture taken. He consented to provide this old family portrait that he claims is his grandfather on his mother's side, "Mad Bob" Nethergate. (Mad Bob has, amongst his many other gifts of demolition prowess and slippery field craft, a definite facility for the blarney.) That said, the image does bear a striking resemblance to our own, present day, fearsome nemesis of the ATF (but much beloved by the people) Mad Bob.
