40. Vietnam vets against people with laser guided bullets that shoot around corners. Not something

I would like to see. I think your analysis of police vs military is generally accurate. We can compare history, recently in New Orleans, and when troops were sent to the South in '57.

I read about Davy Crockett too, thoroughly enjoyed it, but it was when I was younger. History and other things I have read convinced me that there is more power in simply refusing to cooperate, when the cause is for freedom. But our minds are steeped in our rightness for battle, so it's a tough sell sometimes...

I suspect any moves on our investments in people (investment formerly known as entitlements) will be posted on the front page of DU.
