You Might Want to Steer Clear of Oklahoma For a While

Actually, that's probably good advice any time of year, but especially now, because the Oklahoma Teabaggers are formin' a militia!

Now you'd think that Oklahoma would be the last place that militia activity would be welcomed, because of how it worked out last time



but Oklahoma teabagger psychos have, according to NPR, decided to form "a new volunteer militia to help defend against what they believe are improper federal infringements on state sovereignty."(NPR)

But because this is Oklahoma, it gets even worse. Apparently, they have the support of some of Oklahoma's State Legislators!

Tea party movement leaders say they've discussed the idea with several supportive lawmakers and hope to get legislation next year to recognize a new volunteer force.

Oh, but not to worry, because

They say the unit would not resemble militia groups that have been raided for allegedly plotting attacks on law enforcement officers.


No, see, this group would only be plotting to fight the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, but not attacking law enforcement officers, so no big deal.

So, am I right in thinking that this is a little scary?

"Is it scary? It sure is," said tea party leader Al Gerhart of Oklahoma City, who heads an umbrella group of tea party factions called the Oklahoma Constitutional Alliance. "But when do the states stop rolling over for the federal government?"


Oh, my God. I think my favorite part of all this is that this bunch of inbred rednecks think that they could actually mount a defense against the Federal government. The Federal government that controls the Army, The Navy, the Air Force and the Marines. A bunch of beer bellies with hunting rifles is going to stand up to this?

I know you teabaggers like to pretend that it's 1776 and you're the Minutemen or what have you, but this is 2010 and a bunch of yokels with muskets ain't gonna stand up to these redcoats.

But the militia talks reflect the frustration of some grass roots groups seeking new ways of fighting recent federal initiatives, such as the health reform plan, which requires all citizens to have health insurance.


That's what this is about, hmm? That's your line in the sand? "Goldurn it, I'll be dadgummed if any of them guv'mint fellers gonna make me have insurance. So's I kin see a doctor. I'd ruther be dead than have access to them fancy book-lernin' doctor eggheads!"

I'm beginning to see why Oklahomans are okay with James Inhofe representing them. Maybe he really is the smartest guy in the whole state.

Okay, I'm sure that Oklahoma is a perfectly nice place and probably has many fine, intelligent residents. But I have no plans to find out for myself.
