    ha

    morons, all of them. They are no different than muslim extremists blowing up our planes (or Russia's trains) because they are not happy with the way things are.

    Interesting how they are trumpeting the "Christian" aspect though. I remember when Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab tried to blow up a plane, you were hard pressed to find any information regarding his faith... Was he a christian? Nope.

    I'm surprised you didn't post this first, being in Michigan and all. :)

    The ones trumpeting it is the group itself:

    I actually only heard the tail end of this story on NPR this morning, and I didn't realize it happened here. :eek:

    Yeah, well- I guess we all have our fair share of loons. They aren't usually this organized though.

    Agreed. They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Yeah, assuming that these claims are substantiated, this should be viewed as a terrorist organization, these people should be viewed as domestic terrorists, and they should be treated accordingly.

    I just saw a piece about Hutaree in the news. They look pretty extreme.

    Somewhere--I'm not sure where--there is a State Home for the Bewildered which is releasing inmates long before their lobotomies have actually settled in. They wind up with this sort of strange group, or with the Rev Welch or suchlike.

    We had some show up in West Texas, claiming that the vote in the days of the Republic to join the Union was not a valid vote, and they were going to resurrect the original Republic of Texas. They spewed some of the most ridiculous pseudo-legal jargon you can imagine. And then, it later turned out, they'd been doing money scams. As usual, cherchez le moolah. :)

    Same for the Montana Freemen. A clue about the $$$ is when they start yapping about "factoring" certificates of deposit. These are phony bank CDs, for which they try to get cash by discounting, playing on some sucker's greed. In the meantime, they divert attention by some sort of legal jargon about civil rights and strange and arcane interpretations of the meanings of the Constitution...

    You gotta be seriously covered all over with weird to think that eight guys are gonna start a revolution, though.

    Agreed. In fact, as citizens I'd hold them to a higher standard.

    Maybe Gitmo would be useful...

    This just overloaded my irony meter.

    These government-hating terrorists have requested, wait for it..... a public defender.

    Where do they think the public defenders come from? A magical public defender fairy in the sky?

    Their forum has been taken over by 4CHAN, it is HILARIOUS!

    You notice the "evil jew" subsection. Really wish I could read that, no one tell these guys that Jesus was a Jewish carpenter.

    You better not be telling me the public defender fairy isn't real. :mad: They've already taken the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy away from me. Have people no decency nor shame remaining? :mad::mad:
