How nice of "The Lamb" to leave behind messages for people to justify defending themselves using assault rifles...

I'm not necessarily against assault rifles, but I'm pretty sure Jesus would have been!

I am watching this story on the Rachel Maddow show, right now. Just crazy. The last one of the 9 they were looking for was arrested.

Has anyone else noticed that the gene for being a right-wing lunatic is highly correlated with the gene for having really thin lips?

I think it's that mixture of viciousness (set off bombs at a police funeral) and crippling naivitee (and this will spark a general revolt against the US government) that is so creepy.

It's the same pattern over and over, Timothy McViegh, the 9-11 hijackers.

RE: Comments by peterlemesur

I think we're all quite willing to let you post your amusing little quotes and links, but could you do us all the courtesy of only posting them once?

Three times for one unrelated article is too much, and categorizes you as another loony.

On the brighter side you've reminded me of some pleasant memories of Monty Python sketches...

That is because this one is certifiably crazy. It is the infamous David Mabus, King of trolls, emperor of sock puppets. Just ignore him, the mods will delete his ass soon enough.

Not sure where it was noted, but found some info here: http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2009/09/update_on_dennis_markuze.php That was posted Sept. 2009. Obviously the police did nothing since this troll is still posting his garbage here.

Dear me.

So, apart from the hate-speech, and indulging in their childish Rambo-fantasies, what have they actually done, or did they intend to do?

Don't get me wrong - I'm glad that the state intervened (there's no point waiting for them to turn murderous before acting)- but I'm curious to know exactly what they were up to.

Does anyone know of any studies that have found a correlation between involvement in this sort of thing and low IQ scores, or low literacy or numeracy rates? I'm not asking this question because they look stupid in the mug-shots, but because their website is chock-full of stupid.

ahem! excuse me! i could take that the wrong way you know! i'll have you know i've never voted/supported the right wing in my life! ahem!

seriously, if this wasn't so scary it would be funny. what a bunch of weirdo's. how does anyone take seriously a group that thinks up such stupid names for their ranks? as someone else has said, what is needed here is some mental health treatment.

So they were arrested for 'conspiracy to murder'... is there not a case to charge them with terrorism offenses?
