Finally have it together

My old computer petered out on me but my wonderful son bought me a new laptop so I’ll be snarking again in no time!

for most of the day. It appears, based on my political leanings and pretty standard disagreement with the Central Planner in Chief, I am a domestic terrorist, worthy of attention by the Department of Homeland Security. I’m not making bombs or planning on blowing up fellow citizens just because they have different political leanings like the idiots tried to do to Republicans at the Republican National Convention. I’ve not spurred hatred towards a particular ethnic group by say accusing Jews of being Nazis or carrying signs with the Star of David superimposed with a swastika. I’m not planning on burning anyone in effigy to protest my dissatisfaction with a particular government action. I’m not going to crap on the flag, nor allow my dogs to do the same. I won’t be breaking any windows, defacing any monuments, threatening to kill the president, or bombing buildings only to regret I didn’t do enough.

So what is it that makes me, a pro-life, Christian, conservative farm wife in rural Oregon a threat evidently equal to Al Qaeda? According the DHS’ Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment I’m prone to seditious behavior because I’m not in lock step with the federal establishment and I might actually say so to someone else, thus recruiting them to commit acts of terror like egging a Ben & Jerry’s or something.

Well, either that or it’s my belief in the Constitution. Apparently that is also a seditious document, especially the 10th Amendment. According to the DHS, “those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.” (For the record, I’m not against immigration…just the illegal kind.)

I just have one thing to say as I sit here clinging to my guns and religion: DOWN WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT! FIGHT THE POWER!
