There is going to ba a great exercise in oppression in the DC area this October when over 380,000 foreign troops are due to arrive to practice a "FEMA" operation: ....I wonder how people will react?

J Carlton, it causes one to wonder with King Obama in control..

One thing we don't need to wonder about Jim, is whether or not it is treason.

Seems Frederick Douglas is correct. That tyrants should ever exist, is a dilemma.

Ted Cruz stood forthright, stalwart and strong against the oppressors of our liberties during his filibuster!
