Militia World: Some of the family in "family-friendly"

Okay, so the Hutaree militia got a little carried
away. This Saturday the "good" Michigan militia - which is feeling
defensive enough they devote the top half of their website
to stressing the FBI did not arrest them - is inviting everyone
to their "Open Carry Family Picnic and Tea Party" to "help take the
stigma out of the word 'militia.'" Come "exercise your rights and
skills" with a youth shoot, rifle range, handgun competition and family
picnic! Pistols only please!

"A
well-armed citizenry is the
best form of Homeland Security and can better deter crime, invasion,
terrorism,
and tyranny.   If you

are a United States citizen (or have declared your intent to become
such) who
is capable of bearing arms, or supports the right to do so, then YOU ARE
the
MILITIA."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
