    Dear Moderator, if asking a question about tactics is considered trolling, please delete me.

    I hear lots of talk about armed resistance, but little talk about who we are supposed to resist while armed.

    The president and congress are well protected. Any armed resistance to be effective will require implementation. My question, which of course was meant satirically, was intended to get people to think about all this hyperbole.

    Any armed revolution must decide who its enemies are and move ruthlessly against them. My point is that deciding who this enemy is and how they can and should be attacked is something the hyperbolists haven’t given any thought to.

    But it’s quite likely some random idiot will get excited by the hyperbole and shoot somebody, thereby discrediting those of us still trying to defend our rights in a legal way. The media will jump all over such an event in a heartbeat.

    Yes, absolutely, I wouldn't mind telling you the story. Erm... I went to court today for a speeding ticket, and I told the judge, erm... "Let me tell you something, and you listen and you listen good, I'm only gonna say this one time and one time only, I don't repeat myself for nobody," I said. I says... "I'm here to pay a speeding ticket, not to listen to your lectures and hear you run your mouth for an hour." I says "I'm here to pay off my speeding ticket ...and I'm here to get my fines out of the way and get the **** to work." The judge says "You can't talk like that in my courtroom, you're in contempt of court." then I said... I told the judge, "If that's the best you can do, I feel sorry for you." I said "Why don't you just shut your ****ing mouth for once and listen." I said "I'm not gonna take any ****." I said "I'm gonna pay my speeding ticket like I said." I walked up to the god damn judge and I hand him my 25 dollars and I says "Here's my money, now I am leaving."
    And I left it at that.

    Then, before I left, I turned around and told the judge "I'm here to state who I am and be honest with you." I said "If they thought I was dangerous on the road like you're trying to accuse me of, wouldn't they have taken my license when I first got it? Yes they would." And the judge says "Yeah, you have a point," He goes "You don't need to get loud," I said "Don't get loud?" I says "I've got every right to get loud." I says "You can't do a god damn thing about it, because I'm expressing myself in your court, and there is nothing you can do about it. You think you're god because you have a robe and you can put people up the goddamn river for 20 years? Well you're not."
    And I left it at that.

    I don't like the judicial system, I don't like the government system, I don't like the police, I don't like anything to do with this country's government. I just don't like it, because... they're sneaky, like I said - they're deceitful, they're lying, they're cheats, they rip people off. That's the American government for you. America is a third world country, and people don't recognise it... and I think that that's pretty god damn sad, that they don't recognise their own country as a third world, third rate, third class slum.

    There's an evil virus that's threatening mankind
    It's not state of the art, it's a serious state of the mind
    The muggers, the backstabbers, the two faced elite
    A menace to society, a social disease
    To brainwash the mind is a social disorder
    The cynics, the apathy one-upmanship order
    Watching beginnings of social decay
    Gloating and sneering at life's disarray
    Eating away at your own self esteem
    Pouncing on every word that you might be saying
    To attack someone's mind is a social disorder
    The constitution, the government, martial law order
    Superficially smiling a shake of the hand
    As soon as your back is turned treason is planned
    When every good thing's laid to rest
    By the governments hate, by the constitution and their lies
    And every time you think you're safe
    And when you go to turn away
    You know they're sharpening all their knives
    All in your mind
    All in your head
    Try to relate it
    All in your mind
    All in your head
    Try to escape it
    Without a conscience they destroy
    And that's a thing that they enjoy
    They're a sickness that's in all of our minds
    They want to sink the ship and leave
    The way they laugh at you and me
    You know it happens all the time
    But it only happens in your mind
    The rats in the cellar you know who you are...
    Or do you?
    Watching beginnings of social decay...

    How bout I tell a story about what happens when you offer computer upgrade advice but don't actually do it yourself.

    So my GF's hard drive died a couple days ago and she wanted to get up and computing again ASAP because she really needs her compy for her job (teaching online). Given that she:

    Has an ancient computer which should probably have all its major parts replaced,
    Is a struggling single mom without excess resources,
    Already has all the peripherals she needs, and
    Needs a solid, reliable machine because she uses it for work,

    I built her a good bare-bones box from a website that puts them together with a couple better parts from newegg thrown in. Then I e-mailed her recommending she buy the following:

    In the bare-bones build:

    AMD Athlon II 3.0 Ghz Dual Core proc
    Gigabyte mobo (onboard sound, video, etc)
    DVD drive/burner
    Standard power supply, basic case, etc.

    Brand name parts from Newegg:

    2 GB Corsair memory
    250 GB Western Digital hard drive

    Not too bad for $350, if I do say so myself. Obviously she can plug in the hard drive and memory stick herself no problem.

    Fast foward to this morning. I have an e-mail from her saying she bought all the parts and it costed just less than $700. This seems a little strange in light of the aforementioned need for thrift and the fact that it's basically double what I suggested. After a bit of gmail chat, I find out what she actually went and bought (summary below):

    From the bare-bones company:
    1 bb-amd Barebones with AMD CPU
    w/ AMD Phenom II X4 925 (4 x 2.8GHz - 8MB Cache - 4000 FSB)
    Asus M3N78-VM
    Upgraded CPU Fan Only
    22x Lightscribe DVD+/-RW Drive (Sata)
    Standard Mid-Tower (Black)
    400 Watt Power Supply
    Rush - Build, Burn-in, Test & Ship Out Within 3 Business Days
    1 Year Manufacturers Repair / Replacement Warranty $338.55
    1 plat-del Platinum Delivery Plan (Full Insurance - Heavier Packing -

    On Time Guarantee) $6.75 $6.75
    1 basicspkr Multimedia Speakers $19.99 $19.99

    From Newegg:
    1 x ($159.99) HD 2T|WD WD20EADS % - OEM
    $159.99

    1 x ($54.99) MEM 2G|CORS CM2X2048-6400C5 R - Retail
    $54.99

    1 x ($104.99) WIN HOME PREM 7 64-BIT ENG 1PK DSP - OEM
    $104.99



    A quad core proc, 2 terabyte hard drive, Windows 7, and she upgraded the mobo and DVD drive. Oh and some speakers. rofl. :rockon:

    Unfortunately, the end of this story is less exciting... when my answer to the question "Is any of this necessary?" was "Uh... no, not really" she called and changed all her orders. :B
