The Political elite of both parties are deathly afraid of the Tea Party. I am not surprised that Forbes, Republican establishment, would publish such an irresponsible piece.
For some years now, I have been concerned about the military exercises which are being conducted in our cities.
Frankly, I do not wish to see a repeat of the 1967 Detroit riots. For those of you who do not remember, LBJ dispatched a Brigade of the 101st Airborne Division. The Brigade, newly rotated from Vietnam, used the same tactics they employed in Vietnam. This included firing 106mm recoil less Rifles into apartment buildings.
At the same time I understand that the NG was poorly trained and unable to cope with the uprising.
