Dear FBI, I am that subversive element-

Browsing around the interweb this morning with a fresh pot of coffee to keep me warm, I discovered what is going on In Jennifer's Head, thanks to Tamara. You can click the link to read the whole thing and find the background documents but I'm reproducing Jennifer's statement here:
Dear FBI agent,

First of all, welcome to my little corner of the internet. Let me save you a little time and effort and let you know that yes, I do in fact fit the definition of a right-wing extremist. I believe life is precious, including that that has not yet been born. I believe in God and the freedom to worship as I please. I believe free people should have the right to defend themselves against any threat, including that of a tyrannical government. I believe people should be entitled only to that which they earn. I believe the federal government should be limited to matters of interstate commerce and national defense. I do not believe the leader of this nation should ever bow down to anyone, least of all the leader of a hostile nation.

I am not racist. I don’t care what consenting adults do behind closed doors. (The answer to this question is no, it will not cause a civil war.) I am not using the economy to brain-wash nor indoctrinate. I am pleased that people are beginning to wake up. We don’t need a nanny state. We don’t need more bureaucracy. We need the government to get out of the way so we can pursue our own happiness.

The only pork I like is edible, not spendable. (Although the value of bacon does seem far more stable than the dollar these days.)

I think Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, John Hancock, and Ronald Reagan were great. I wish we had more men like them in power today. I did not vote for our current president and plan to vote against his party in the next congressional election. I prefer tea to kool-aid, but I’m really a coffee drinker.

I have no intention of turning my guns in even if you offer to buy them back. They were never yours in the first place, so how can you possibly buy them back? I want only to be a citizen of this great nation and have no intention of being a subject of anyone.

I don’t watch Fox, and they did not astro-turf this movement. The people are tired of being spent into debt far beyond what can be repaid. The first thing you must do when you find yourself in a hole, is stop digging. When you find yourself in a recession, stop spending.

I brought 2 people to the last tea party with me. July 4th, it will be more. We’ll smile for your cameras. If you bring pictures from the last one, I’ll even sign them for you.


Because what she said is exactly how I feel about the subject too. So there, Mr. FBI Agent!
