Jade Helm Crazies
Two so far unknown men took pot shots at military personnel near Hattiesburg, MS today. I was wrong insofar as I had predicted this to happen in Texas but Mississippi has more than its far share of illiterate, inbred pseudo-patriots.
I am not suggesting that the South Mississippi Outlaw Militia was responsible for the shooting. I am simply observing that such a thing exists. They are old-fashioned Lost Causers who are preparing for the day when the Confederacy shall rise again. Their symbolism includes the Rebel flag and the German Iron Cross. They have an affection for assault weapons and the Germanic Fraktur font.
That III% thing is from the belief that the Continental Army numbered about 75,000 men or 3% of the population of the colonies in 1776. The equivalent today would be a fighting force of 10 million. All the "militia patriots" in the country amount to less than 0.02% of the population.
