Earning Trust

Recommended Posts

In Hall Co. Ga today two men have been sentenced to five years each in Federal Prison. These men have plead to charges of conspiring to obtain illegal explosives and a supressor. These two are members of an alleged "terror Cell" that hatched there devious plots in the corner booth of the Waffle House in Toccoa Ga.

 

When I was very young I remember my father giving a piece of advice which has stuck with me for a long time. You make people earn your trust, and you never speak everything on your mind! We live in very dangerous and interesting times my friends. Never in the history of this nation has there been more surveillance on it's citizens than now. We are all very frustrated with the course and policies of this country. Exercise caution in how and who you vent those frustrations too.

 

God Bless!!

Big Easy,

 

I researched the story and found this article:

Apparently there are many hours of taped recordings on the men. Were they talking trash like the Defense says? I don't know but their threats were pretty specific and they had apparently taken steps to carry them out.

 

The Feds appear to have had reason to monitor them.

 

Which side do you err on?

 

I don't pretend to know the truth.

 

I guess it depends on your viewpoint.

I dont pretent to know the truth either Rod.

 

I'm not sure if these guy's were plotting an action that they were actually going to follow through with or talking a lot of trash. Only the four guy's sitting in that booth know.

 

I do know that a stupid statement made out of anger/frustration to the wrong person can ruin your life. My only point is to exercise caution.

I do hate thought and political correct police but if you make specific threats your a danger to society

and as I have said many times Hate is an acid that will eat your soul and the really funny part it is optional

you do not have to drink it.

 

I am sure they were overheard or tried to include others and got the authorities involved

if your trying to buy what they were it was not for doing nice things now if they start

hassling food banks soup kitchens and candy stripers well that would make me nervous.

Not to play Devil's Advocate, but Toccoa Ga. isnt exactly a hotbed of insurgent activity. This week was the 20th anniversary of the Cluster F&*$ @ Ruby Ridge. We all know what can occur when over zealous Government agents with an agenda target citizens. With the current administrations actions in regards to Fast and Furious, I think it's safe to say this administration has an agenda.

I think that what you have to be careful of is saying things that are easily viewed as terroristic threats, multiple times, in a group, in public, over time. Especially if your conversation includes specific plans which you have researched on the web. Of course doing it in a meeting you called that includes people you don't know is not helpful either.

 

That draws attention. As I think it should.

Big Brother really is listening! Actually, I think it is sort of Darwinian the way some folks manage to remove themselves from the genepool by "talking trash" and this serves as a reminder to self censor. I know, we have our right to free speech and all that jazz (especially if we are corporations and that speech consists of writing big honking checks to support our own self-interest, but I digress), but still you have that goober yelling "Fire" in a crowded theater. Be careful of what you say and mindful of who you trust.

Big Easy, you dad was 100% on target and taught you a great lesson!

 

Texas Bill… yes they are! If you recall, a while ago the government printed a list of traits shared by ‘homegrown terrorists’. There were issues like ex-military, white male, pro-2nd Amendment, pro-freedom, anti-abortion, etc. If those traits described you, Big Bro is listening. That is why I never divulge prepper plans and anti-home invasion, home defense plans over ANY unsecured lines… period. Not over the phone, not in public, not via the Internet, etc…

'When four men sit and plot revolution, three are fools. The fourth a police spy'

 

....old Russian proverb...

 

Especially true if the spy is trying to work a deal with the DA to get himself out of trouble. NEVER be part of a conspiracy discussion. IF you are standing at a bar and it starts, say LOUDLY enough for everyone to hear that plotting like that is a crime and you will not be a party to it, even in jest. Then leave! No matter what else, leave. That way you are on tape divorcing yourself from the crime. When the others are called to testify, you said NO and left!

 

In "The Quite Man" Barry Fitzgerald (Michaleen Oge Flynn) says he is going to the pub to "talk a little treason" and it is funny. Today he'd be arrested and charged. Not funny but unfortunately true.

 

Be careful what you say and to whom you say it. Your freedom depends on being discrete.

Absolutely Capt. Bart.

Toccoa Ga, probably more moonshiners than anti government terrorist.
