abb3w: smudging the lines of your pentacle in the virgin sacrifice.


I got to this part of your post and all I could think afterwards was, "Heh.  I'd like to smudge my pentacle in a virgin sacrifice."

/sorry

Infamy: "Natelli Woods Lane" ??


In this real estate market, most of the houses there are now underwater.

Polyhazard: I was unaware of this movement and had assumed the sovereign citizen thing was only for white cranks. Who knew it was a rainbow coalition?


That's funny, because here in the metro Atlanta area the only "sovereign citizens" you see making the news are black.  I had always assumed that the "white cranks" were in the minority, at least in the state of Georgia.

We had something similar occur to a cabin that belongs to my family.

A couple buddies and I headed out to open up our get-away cabin (it's a Summer cabin so we seal it up during the Winter) and get Spring started off on the right foot. When I get around the bend, I notice something is wrong because I can see the smoke just over the trees. I stop the truck before the bend and we get out and hoof it. As we sneak closer we can see an entire family moving in and around the cabin. We head back to the truck to grab a gun and go see what's going on. As I get closer the kids playing out front see us and run inside. By the time we reach the front steps a couple men with, I swear to God, muskets in hand.

For a good 60 seconds there is a back and forth of "This is my house, who are you?" and "This is our house, who are you?". I didn't have the deed to the cabin or property, and didn't want to start any sort of altercation, so I said I was leaving and coming back with the county police.

The next day I go and grab my buddies again and loaded the truck with every gun we had. I had pre-called the police department, so when I came in with the deed, they agreed to send some deputies out there with me. The deputies read me the riot-act for being loaded up with so many weapons, but they were all legal and licensed, so there wasn't much they could do. Essentially they thought these hillbillies were going to be non-confrontational. The morons.

Anyway, fast forward to getting back to the cabin. The deputies tell me they'd like to drive up ahead of us, and since I didn't want shot by some hillbilly, I obliged them. After a few minutes we start hearing a bunch of yelling, so we mosey towards the cabin; and that's when we hear the crack of the musket. We run up to two deputies crouched behind their squad car and a few long-gun muzzles pointed out the cabin windows. Seems the hillbillies didn't like the cops anymore then they liked us. We all backed off the cabin and they pulled their car back. After an hour or so they found some local person who knows these people.

To wrap things up (sorry, gotta run to a meeting soon) ... the guy who knows them, shows up with about 3-4 more cop cars and they talk this family down from the cabin. It seems they believed our cabin was on THEIR hill (or what passes for a hill in Indiana), where the hill is actually divided into 3 different properties. They were off their land by about 4-5 miles. The police grabbed their stuff and left with the family piled into their squad cars. We've not had anymore problems with them, but I still hear musket fire from time to time, and it sounds much closer then 4-5 miles.

Property owners, back when I was a kid, had a solution for this type of thing that didn't involve cops, lawyers or arguments.

They simply packed a couple of .12 gauge shotgun shells with rock salt and bits of leathery bacon rind. Then they approached the trespasser at a suitable range and blew his arse off.

The blast wasn't lethal. The rock salt penetrated to just under the skin, where it would sit and burn like heck until picked out while the bacon rind would raise painful welts.

Yeah. It could be serious, but the old timers I knew had the range down to a science. The cops back then figured the property owner was justified.

BTW. All privately owned land in Florida is considered No Trespassing whether marked or unmarked. Found that out for myself decades ago when looking around some wild, undeveloped acres that had just burned up in a fire. The State Trooper was nice enough to inform me, instead of arresting my butt.

Most people would be content to live in a place they could afford, but he wanted Moor.

Once you go Moorish you don't go back.

abb3w: WALL OF AWESOME

Wow. I'd known vaguely about the wars between the US and the Barbary states, but I didn't know how much of a lynchpin the treaties were for American historians. Glossing over one of the later ones, I'm assuming that any actual residual right that you could claim assuming that the treaties still had force would require two things-

- That the property in question was a sea vessel;
- That you had stolen it more than 210 years ago.

Sometimes weirdos claim Moorish citizenship as a defense to suits...somehow they think it completely nullifies any and all contracts they may have signed.  Douchebags.

I suspect you got my post mixed up with Silverstaff's nice analysis of the Treaty. Thanks for the compliment, though.

Yeah, I really should have quoted both of you. Yours was a very astute assessment of the type of mindset these people have.
