An Incivil War (Open Thread)

© Miri WTPOTUS February 10, 2012

The British had a tactic that they used in battle, whether against Americans in our War for Independence, or the French, in the Napoleonic wars. The Brits would send out skirmishers ahead of the battlelines–snipers who were tasked with picking off the enemy leaders.  The officers were their main targets, the generals, captains, lieutenants, sergeants.  Why?  Because to put them down would demoralize their troops and cause chaos in the leaderless ranks.  

Some would love to see chaos in our ranks.  To split us. To demoralize us. To cause an In-Civil war.   Or simply to make us waste our time arguing amongst ourselves instead of keeping our eyes on the true enemy.

This is still a free country.  We are all free to fight in our own way.  Let’s not forget that it was a “rabble” that won our freedom from King George.

  1. Here’s a bizarre story: “Justice Stephen Breyer was robbed last week by a machete-wielding intruder at his vacation home in the West Indies, a Supreme Court spokeswoman said Monday.

    The 73-year-old Breyer, wife Joanna and guests were confronted by the robber around 9 p.m. EST Thursday in the home Breyer owns on the Caribbean island of Nevis, spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said. The intruder took about $1,000 in cash and no one was hurt, Arberg said.

    She said the robbery was reported to local authorities, but she did not know if an arrest has been made.

    Breyer reported on his most recent annual disclosure in June that property he owns on Nevis is worth between $100,000 and $250,000.

    The last time a justice was the victim of a crime was in 2004, when a group of young men assaulted Justice David Souter as he jogged on a city street. Souter suffered minor injuries.

    In 1996, a man snatched Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s purse while she was out walking with her husband and daughter near their home in Washington. Ginsburg was not hurt.”

    • Was someone trying to scare him ? If his property is only worth 100-250k then it sounds like he is an honest person or he would have a mansion……
      Someone trying to get to him ?

      • Really. It sounds kind of cheap for property on a Caribbean island. I’d say, let’s go, except for the machete-wielding thugs.

  2. daily penn is following up on the geographic reporting of births in Hawaii:

    • That’s a keeper if there ever was one. Covers everything so well. Answers alot of uncertainties that so many have had. Many have thought O. was born before 1961. This explains so well, how that may have occured verifiably. I kept thinking that the certificate would possibly show that the mother was the only verifiable parent….(an illegitimate birth and what it says constitutionaly) When there is no father (other) listed the mother’s place of birth is the child’s.
      If anyone has ever read all (all available that is) of Frank M. Davis’s FBI files he was noted as using binoculars and combing the seashore… what was he watching for? Anybody else read that? There were people designated by the government that did this…they were just that….”watchers” for anything unusual, but because Frank was one who was being watched , I can’t consider him to be one of the gov’s watchers. So was he waiting for a ship to come in? I’ve always wondered that. Then of course ,, other than the one photo of baby Obama, all his photos are of him as a todler….Only one of him in diapers. Wonder if he arrived in those little diapers???? I’ve pictured this scenario so many times. Now this only serves to keep me thinking in that vein. Then of course Davis’s membership and obsession with the Organization for the Foreign Born.
