    MM--I'm sorry, but aren't you Canadian?

    Why are you so worried about us down here?

      I agree.  Let us worry about our so called "right wing extremists". 

      I think I see your attempt to bring out "awareness".  Is that what you are trying to accomplish with this subject matter?

      May I advise you about Americans and how we feel about OUR "right wing soldiers"?  This is how we feel- there would be no more HLS if this were too happen.  You kidding me?  Absolutely absurd material. 

      This is how I feel, "Hey you donkeys- I dare homeland security to mess w/1, 1- soldier and imprison them.  I double dare you stupid, donkeys."

      That's what you need to be advised on when posting remarks on American policies and our veteran soldiers.  Being from Canada, and since you don't know the realistic  truth about how Americans feel concerning our MEN/WOMEN in the military- I'd take notice that publications such as this, are lies.  I dare, dare, triple dare HLS to mess with a veteran, military man. 
      Shit, West Point would be burnt to the ground if there was such a thing occurs.

      Thank you Dame Scribe.  But I definitely still believe in the border and would like to see it stay as it is.  I don't want nothing to do with the North American Union.

      Well first because I figured you would like to know (assuming that Baldwin's report is true).  Although I did find the DHS report that he talks about just by doing a Google search for it.  http://file.sunshinepress.org:54445/us- … m-2009.pdf

      Secondly I wouldn't want it to spread to Canada (again assuming it's true).  You may not have heard the phrase "when the U.S. gets the sniffles Canada catches the cold."

      But now I'm wondering if either this DHS report about "rightwing extremists" or the DHS report that kerryg posted about "leftwing extremists" are even true.  You know what I mean, how are these supposedly "Unclassified" documents being posted online?  But then I suppose if they are being given to all law enforcement agencies in the U.S. I'm sure they could be leaked.

      So what do you say, are they true or not?

      I kind of want to hope they are not.

      There seems to be a lot that want to pit the right wing against the left wing and visa versa these days.

    Baldwin's editorial fails to note a few facts that might be relevant:

    1. The report was originally requested by the Bush administration, but was not finished until now, which is why it's being released now.

    2. A similar report about left wing extremist groups, also commissioned by the Bush administration, was issued January 26th, and fingered people who believe in humane treatment for animals, sound environmental practices, and social justice for the disenfranchised as potential threats. I think it's safe to say that 75% percent or more of Americans have beliefs that fall loosely into one of these categories too.

      I didn't mean hostile.  I know Lita wasn't either.   A person can't make a statement without people posting this crap.  Whatever lady, Gee'z.hmm

      By the way, I'm listening to Sirrus, and they were poking some serious fun at the publication.tongue

    Well, if these reports were commissioned by a sitting president, it is likely that they are actual studies.  There is such a thing as the Freedom of Information Act...  What these reports say is another matter.

    What they might speak to is a certain paranoia that was evident in the last administration.  And I also wonder about such statistics.  There are military men and women who lean left, ie.  These classifications seem like broad sweeping caricatures, almost. 

    And of course, MM, you have an interest in what goes on in N. America.  It just seems we don't talk all that much about you guys, except us leftos, to admire your 'socialist' health care, wink.

    Well it looks like the Department of Homeland Security report about "Rightwing Extremism" is true cause there is a federal lawsuit filed against DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano for it.

    Quote from Napolitano is Lying to Americans About Her Department’s Rightwing Extremism Report; TMLC Files Suit

      Its tru alright.  One of my military customers told me about it.  The government also full access to their banking accounts if they wish to exercise it.  In Missouri the Highway patrol & the attorney general released a profile of a domestic terrorist.  I fall into that category...ohooo.  If you've ever voted for Ross Parro, you may be a teroist...

    Hmmm.  Didn't Kerry state that this was under the Bush Admin.?  Perhaps the suit is against the DHS in general, again--with a carry over from the last administration.

    I cannot say I'm a Napolitano fan--even though we share the same political affiliation--but that is besides the point. I also hope Obama changes the name of this agency (changed under Bush to my knowledge) because it always rang in connotation to me rather like the Gestapo!  I think the verbiage itself is in poor taste--or clueless to the innuendo of words.

    An off-duty Marine was walking out the White House gate when a pit bull broke loose from the owners leash and attacked a little boy standing nearby. The Marine dropped his briefcase and ran over and choked the dog till he dropped the boy from his jaws – then he broke the dog’s neck. He turned administered first aid to the boy and called 911 on his cell phone. A member of the White House Press Corps witnessed the whole thing said 'wow - what a story,' He immediately began sending the story to his editor on his Blackberry – “Local Hero Saves Child Attacked by Pit Bull” As he was typing he approached the Marine and said “that was amazing - by the way, what do you do?' Between administering mouth to mouth breaths he answered 'I'm a - Marine - detailed - to the White House”. Furiously hitting the backspace key – the reporter began typing again... “Angry Right Wing Extremist Strangles Beloved Family Pet” lol

    Obviously not true.

    Sounds like Jeff Foxworthy's "you maybe a redneck if" everything fits.  Replace red neck with terrorist.

    So you maybe a terrorist if you think Taco Bell is the Mexican Phone Company.

    You maybe a terrorist if you think Sherlock Holmes is a housing project down in Biloxi.

    You maybe a terrorist if you got stopped by a state trooper.  He asked you if you had an I.D.  And you said, 'Bout What?'

    You maybe a terrorist if you carried a fishing pole into Sea World.

    If you can burp and say your name at the same time, you're shur'nuff a terrorist.

    Sorry, this is just so ridiculous it's laughable.

    Get ur dun. lol
