Wmarincic, You're 100% right, ignorant simple minded folk think it can't happen here. Harry Belefante is just a senile old washed up communist who can't even remember what he had for breakfast, I'm more afraid of the wanna be dictators in power like Bloomberg, who thinks we need to be told what size soft drink we can have, Rahm Emanual, "Never let a good crisis go to waste", and of course the illegitimate president "This is the greatest country on earth, I'm going to change that"

All smooth talking thugs who had two things in common, they removed arms from the citizenry, and then murdered them. It's happening today in Africa, Syria, and most likely in other places like North Korea.
