For those not familiar with the Star Wars story line, the leader of the Republic Senate, Chancelor Palpatine, was secretly an evil Sith Lord named Darth Sidious.  He created a civil war situation (secretly controlling both sides) to stay in power, eventually to turn the republic into an empire and declare himself as emperor.  The events occurred in Star Wars episodes 2 and 3, Attack Of The clones, and Revenge Of The Sith.

Guns are being seized.
Government stockpiles ammo.
Insurrection soon?!

I'm not really a conspiracy nut, but I think the USA has been going in the wrong direction for a while, and going astray ever so much faster since Obama was elected. The bit about seizing arms and hoarding ammo is both true and scary. I've been reading that the gov't is also trying to control emergency food distribution and interfere with families' rights to raise their own food. Scarier!

Funny, but also scarily true (not the Darth Sidious part).

The Right To Bear Arms is not just about self-defense, it is about keeping the government in line. The gov trying to take weapons out of the hands of law-abiding citizens while also stockpiling ammo is really scary. During the Great Depression, the gov had the Army break up WWI veterans who were legally assembled picketing Washington DC because the gov wasn't paying their entitlements. Douglas MacArhur was in charge of that dishonorable fiasco. A precedent has already been set. Scary.

Oh very deep clever Haiku Mark. I would love to see an end to wars and atrocities but sadly we don't live in an ideal world - your few words speak volumes. hugs Jan xxx
