"The Next Waco"? That would imply that Ed Brown is a child molestor like David Koresh was. Hmmm.

No, of course he's not a child molestor. He's just a liar and a criminal who's invited, in his own words, grandmas and grandchildren into his home as protection in case the Feds do decide to raid him. A real American hero.

No one ever produced any proof that Koresch was a child molestor. He was guilty of polygamy no doubt, and perhaps some of his conquests were underage, but as I understand it Koresch had the parents' permission.

If the feds had anything on Koresch, they had many opportunities to arrest him any one of the frequent times he went to town. They did not want to arrest him, they wanted to assert federal authority into a state and establish a new precedent. They achieved that, and it only cost about 80-odd innocent human lives.

It didn't surprise me in the least when they moved up to 168 human lives at OKC, after making sure that none of their federal agents would be there of course.

It didn't surprise me when they upped the ante to 3,000 lives on 9-11. They got their increased funding each time, and they got the profitable war they wanted this last time. What else is new?

That's some good thinking there, Fred. I'd like to talk more about how the U.S. government murders its citizens for political gain while blaming it on bomb-making crackers and cranky religious zealots and completely concealing all evidence of it, but I left my tin foil hat down in the bomb shelter.
