Not funny, but highly inspirational.
Comment on This Post:
If by "highly inspirational" you mean "arming yourself to the teeth to fight an impossible fight against a federal government" then yes, it is... I think I just wrote the plot for the next Rambo.
My army buddy saw this and said it reminded him of the time he swore an oath the protect the constitution. I would hope that counts for something. But it's likely it doesn't unfortunately.
Cannon fodder never gets to protect the constitution...
Sad but true.
who doesn't like Rambo first blood he doesn't even kill a dude.
viva la revolucion
@ JAy, yes, ONE person can't stand against the government, but 200,000,000 can!
@ Meadock...yes, protect the Constitution...not serve the government. There is a difference.
@ Aeonsoul...Damn right.
It's a shame that people have lost the right and proper fear of government that Washington preached.
Now it's viewed as some omnipresent old uncle in the sky that rains down freebies from thin air.
He didn't preach "fear of government." He preached "keeping an eye on the government."
It's not a tyrannical dictatorship - despite some peoples' desires - but we do need to step up & voice our disapproval when it gets too out-of-hand.
Of course, it's hard to fight a government that has nuclear warheads, but you can certainly vote bad people out & vote in people with our best interests in mind. (That's assuming people can compromise on major issues instead of bickering over petty partisan lines.)
I'm buttmax, and I approve this message.
Someone show this to Obama.
That's when Journalism is a better weapon to fight a corrupt goverment, the ONLY bad thing is that goverment also controls that.
Sometimes I wonder if the plot of Metal Gear Solid is totally true..
This quote isn't accurate. The actual quote: "A free people ought not only to be armed but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well digested plan is requisite: And their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories, as tend to render them independent on others, for essential, particularly for military supplies."
Alas, someone should show this to those trying to stop the manufacturing of guns and ammunition (look to Colorado for an example of this tyrannical move).
key words. Armed and DISCIPLINED! I feel we're only armed :P
well, considering Washington's handling of the whiskey rebellion, I consider this quote suspect of fakery.
