You see where I live the racoons are bigger then the rabbits. So the rabbits gotta hide. Big deal. The land was there way before me the fence  the rabbit or the racoon. Its a stupid fence anyways.

If you don't want the rabbits on your side of the fence...start shooting them as they cross.  Crude?  Barbaric?  Effective!

again, ancient history. Are you going to cling to this fear mongering for the next 50 years? In the CURRENT year the statistics are quite different.

Are you going to cling to ignorance all your life?  And what do the current statistics state?  That more illegals were caught last year?  What fraction of the total that get through is that?  Nothing has changed in the past 30 years.  That is not ancient history.  It's status quo.  Obama hasn't done anything to close the border.  Closing the border means 0% get through.  You need a series of palisades and redoubts linking non-lethal killing zones of burms and ditches between 300 to 500 yards deep.  It won't prevent people from coming through but by the time they get to the other side, they'll be so exhausted that they could be collected easily.  A pure fence will only encourage them.  An obvious obstacle that will wear them out would be more effective.  And before they are deported, they could be used to maintain the line.  Use the terrain to benefit the defender, not the infiltrator.  But if you want to discuss illegals then I suggest you start a new thread.

I don't care what that is, the bottom line is simple, anyone who wants to take a stand for their rights have their own plan..and that means anyone
You had better care.  Knowing what their [the Administration's] plan is determines what your course of action is.

Quote

Nah, Jesus only briefly mentions forgiveness and peace..  Jesus said it out the corner of his mouth, then cleared his throat ..*AHEM*... !!  
I guess you didn't catch the focus.  The Bible and Jesus speak of many things but the message of the Bible is Salvation.

Quote

Funny, Fred Phelps thinks so too ...!!
That's nice.

Quote

Now why can't I be with the  ' in crowd '  Join a group of mad folk that go around thinking violence is the only way... I never got my membership.. Darn I feel so left out..
Aren't you getting things mixed up?  Fred Phelps brand of violence has nothing to do with bringing down a tyrannical government.  Now, you may think that he may think so but I would say he was wrong.  You don't commit violence at military funerals when it is the politician that should be the target.  The military are part of the people.

Quote

Isn't that a clever quote?  Here's another - Smoking doesn't kill anyone, but people can die from smoking..
Yeah, it is a clever quote if you *catch* it.  You're non clever comment proves that you didn't.

Quote

I knew you couldn't copy and paste a single word from Jesus about him telling people to use violence to get their own way..
I thought I did…  I didn't give you chapter and verse, but I did reference a passage.  Violence isn't just for *getting your way*.  It is also for standing your ground.  Ok, so let me look (yawn)…

Luke 22:36
He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. – some will say that this was meant as a setup so that Jesus could rebuke the use of weapons but others will say only for the purpose of his Crucifixion.  As I said before, Jesus was telling us to not be stupid.

Matthew 10:34
"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. – Some versions say that the word is not sword but division, but it is still violence.  From time to time, I make an equivalence between Judaism and Hinduism by stating that Yahweh = Brahma, Jesus = Shiva, & Holy Ghost = Vishnu.  Now Shiva is the destructor of the Triad (or Trinity).

Matthew 21:12-13
12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. 13 "It is written," he said to them, "'My house will be called a house of prayer,' but you are making it 'a den of robbers.'"

These are examples of violence used by Jesus.  Now people like you and Phelps would see these as examples of using violence to get your way.  I see it as standing your ground.  As a last resort.

But aren't we getting away from the OP?  If you want to reply further then create a new thread in the appropriate  forum.  Let me know and I may respond.

Quote

Do you think that the gun owners who believe in their rights, and will take a stand to fight for those rights, are they a threat?......OR is it like you first mentioned  only IF they believe in god?
No!  As I said before, it is the Administration that considers people who believe in the Bible as a threat.  I didn't add the *if*.  This is an attempt to divide the people, just as the Nazis did to the Jews.  That's what I brought up.

Quote

In this thread and only in this thread alone.. You were the first and only one I saw mention god... No one else cared to.. If I never saw you mention it, I wouldn't have taken on your post..
Sigh!...  I'll try it again.  I didn't bring GOD into this.  The Administration did.  I only commented on it.  And it wasn't the main focus.  It was but one item on a list that the Administration identified as a possible threat.  It certainly wasn't all inclusive.

Quote

The afterlife has nothing to do with the here and now..   We live for today, and the next and the next...
Exactly.

Quote

When a person wishes to stand for their rights, its for the here and now..  Many non believers will do it and make sure they get it done...Just in the same way a believer will ..  
Exactly.

Quote

You all will hold the same passion for your rights.. It is arrogant and silly to think you wont..
Exactly.

Quote

Hypothetically.. IF your country were to face a massive attack, invaded and another group from a different religion and culture  ( a pretend group for the sake of this discussion )  who do not like christians, atheists Jews and whatever else...You will NEED as many Americans on your side as you can   You wouldn't have time to fanny about wanting to dived your people..  Your chances are greater with more on your side ...........  Like when the British invaded all those years ago, the Americans didn't mess around and only hand guns to a selected crown  - Only those who believe in Jesus, take a gun.. NO.. Everyone who was anyone took a stand and fought back together..
You're starting to catch on.  Why do you think the Administration is doing this?  It's not a pretend group.  It is the Administration.  The invasion is from the inside.

Quote

Well then,  that gives them all the more reason to fight for their rights,  for the life they live in here and now.. IF it is all they have ...Then that's all they need to fight for  
OK…

Quote

Faith or no faith, if your fate is to be killed, you face it, many christians have had to face it, just like many people from every other faith known to man  ...If Christians didn't wish to die, because they are so calm and collective about death due to an afterlife, then why fight  to save themselves and families?   ...  What about the christians who went into the Colosseum,  do you think they weren't frightened of what they had to face?  I think so..  Being scared of dying and leaving people behind is human nature.. I am not saying everyone is scared, but it is naive to think that christians aren't, just because they believe in an afterlife . So many are and have been... I don't want to hear any nonsense that pretends they don't.. You do not speak for every last christian on the planet... Bottom line is this - So many of them even with their beliefs, will be scared, so many not so..
I didn't say they wouldn't be scared.  But if you are comfortable with your afterlife, you will face death easier.  And I will claim that those that believe that Jesus is their Lord and Savior will meet their end far better than a non believer.  But this has nothing to do with the OP.

I'm not sure I appreciate your implication, which is a bit snide, as I would not stand around doing nothing.  There is a difference between force and lethal force.

I remember one time one the back of a motorbike (the way we generally get around in Vietnam) wandering into some restricted property on the way to look at some real estate, and a smiling but very young and very well armed soldier comes out to tell us we must turn around (in the process using the most friendly and respectful pronoun available in the language).  My friend who was driving didn't want to -- we just want to go "over there."  "No, the man said, you can not do that (less friendly, more formal pronoun)."  I nudged my friend and said, "Sun, the man has a gun and his hand is on it.  Come to your senses."

Well we turned around and went a longer route.  I upchucked a few minutes later.

Ask the Koreans during the LA riots how those 30 round magazines worked out.
They stood their ground protecting their shops and their shops were some of the only ones not looted and burned to the ground.
Everyone likes to pretend that guns are for protection in a one on one situation.
Guess what?  Thats not always the case.
If you're not prepared for the worst case scenario, that's your problem.
Dont try to legislate my right to be prepared away just so you can feel good about yourself though.

Was not trying to be snide,just meant i would do anything nessasary to protect myself or my own.Dont bring a knife to a gunfight you will lose.Some situations are unavoidable i will stand my ground and would rather be prepared to take it head on,not turn my back and and Try to run away.
