On a more serious note

Heard the news that the anti-government terrorists in eastern Oregon have been arrested (with, unfortunately, one killed) AND that certain pro-forced birth terrorists have been indicted after covertly videotaping and then doctoring the footage to be used as a "documentary."

The terrorist takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge seems to be coming to an end as several of the terrorists were stopped while traveling to a neighboring community to try and raise support for their efforts.

A small number of the terrorist group is still holed up at the Refuge, one of them stating that the F.B.I. was "hellbent on war," but he hopes for a peaceful resolution.

Let me guess . . . that "peaceful resolution" is defined as "Give me what I want and go away."  As one person said in the NYT comments, "It might be easier to believe they want a peaceful resolution if they weren't armed to the teeth."

And in another form of domestic terrorism, one group using any means necessary to shut down clinics that provide healthcare for (mainly) low-income women have been indicted for using illegal means and fraud.

From the NY Times about the videotaping:

Mr. Daleiden and Sandra S. Merritt, 62, were indicted on felony charges of tampering with a governmental record with the intent to defraud — specifically, falsifying California driver’s licenses to pose as biotechnology representatives and infiltrate Planned Parenthood centers and research conferences. Mr. Daleiden was also charged with a misdemeanor related to trying to buy human organs.

Yet, despite the illegal activities, the blatant lies, and the desire to treat women as property duly controlled by men, the pro-forced birth crowd is beginning to double down on their stance of bearing false witness and comparing Planned Parenthood to the S.S. and Holocaust.

But for now, the terrorists have been dealt a setback.  We'll see how it plays out in the future.

It is ironic that the Head Gunslinger seems to be named after the founder of the most peaceful group in the world - Jacob Amman.
