WACO, Texasgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread
Here ia an example of Big Brother doing a dirty deed on TV no less. Did you see anyone return fire? I Didn't. I saw 3 cops go in then their buddies shoot into the house. Later the shot cops were identified as Clintons former stooges.
Call me crazy but if I had A Barrett 50 calibur rifle the cops would never have gotten closer than a 1/2 mile. There would have been no "noise" pollution or bright lights used against the compound. Quite frankly I have doubts that the Dividians were armed with anything more dangerous than 22 rifles and 12 gauge shot guns.
The "big explosion" that was supposed to represent cartridges going off was a big hoax. As it happened I said There goes a propane tank. Ammunition does not explode it cooks off. Crackle, pop, pop, crakle.
I personally might not have agreed with the religious practices going on by the folks in Waco, but I DO agree they were viciously attacked, murdered and left dead because the government wanted to "test" the american religious resolve. THEY WON. I actually heard more pagans talking about the incident than Christians.
It seems to me that such brutality should be "outlawed". Ooops forgot we live in a Republic not a Democracy. Silly Me.
Hi Doreen Just sounding Off. :-)

How true, how true.
Are you sure about the Republic part?? Gosh, and to hear tell, we are a democracy!! Someone better tell the Press!! (and the gov't schools and the liberals and the...oh well, too many to list!)

We haven't been a real Democracy since Lincoln ordered the first shots fired on Fort Sumpter... If we really were still one then.
Waco was the beginning of something, though. Hell... Gun laws... Child abuse laws... Surveilance... Search and Siezure... I could probably go back and name a hundred different things that this tragedy moved forward without the 'people's' permission.
I know a lot of folks from countryside don't spend much if any time over at BHM... But there is an article going on the site tonight that would probably interest most of you. Its Dave Duffy's take on Waco and the execution coming on the 16th. He makes a lot of sense on most of his points....
Me?? I'd like to see those AFT agents, Reno, Clinton (yeah... I know I defend him - but usually when he is the only one accused of things that lots of folks do!!) and a few others hung in a public square.
(Really, if asked, I'd like to see the gorriest, most horrendous public consequences for a lot of crimes... might deter some idiots... But first we have to change the laws in this country - or some schmuck suckin' a joint will be drawn and quartered!!!) OK... so this time I'M the one venting!!!! !@#$%^&*!!!! Sorry.....

Well, we have NEVER been a democracy. If things go according to the Constitution we will never be one either. Democracies are really mob rule and terribly unstable. My dad gave me this lesson when I was young at home. He said "By God, what do you think this is, a Democracy? NO. It's not even a republic. You have NO SAY, as long as you're eating my food, sleeping under my roof, and soaking up my heat..."well you get the picture;) It did help me to understand forms of government.

Sue ol' Abe had nothing to do with firing on Fort Sumpter.It was the South.As in we should have first freed the slaves and THEN fired on Fort Sumpter.Of course I've all but stopped refering to that period as the civil war and now tend to call it the war of northern agression.Opps I forgot the history books said it was all about slavery.I think you are spot on with your other comments.
