Its goal is to "stop unconstitutional actions against United States citizens,″ according to the December report into Shea's activities, paid for by the Washington state House.

ftfaShea rarely speaks to the news media. A phone call to his legislative office went unanswered.

he is somewhere in terra incognita. likely his cloaking device is malfunctioning though.

"A staunch conservative Christian and a fiery orator, Shea is a favorite among gun rights groups."

So apparently far-right populist, conspiracy-minded, and anti-government beliefs are now "staunch conservative Christian".

Ah yes, it takes a staunch Christian to beat a ploughshare into a sword, to will demand Class A shirt-stock before loaning you a scrap of cloth, and to shoot you in both cheeks.

Truly, he lives life as Jesus himself would have.

And they shall beat their swords into ploughshares, because when you hit a man with a plough, he ain't farking getting back up....Amen


I had a conservative Christian try to explain to me once how the whole "turn the other cheek" was a secret martial arts move Jesus was trying to teach to his followers. And yes, he was being completely serious about it.

Uhhh, cows kill more humans every year than sharks.

They knock people over and stomp them until bone splinters are jutting out.

Not so tough without an electrified cattle prod.

Friend of mine spent a couple of weeks in a hospital because of a goddamn pissed-off cow. Their trick is to knock you down, and then straddle you and spin you around on the ground with their hooves. Mike ended up with a broken collarbone, several broken ribs, a dislocated knee and several teeth knocked out. He still talks a little funny.

Cows are good at being gladiators.

Sorry your friend got hurt, glad he survived. I have a strong interest in 3D printed meat in order to put an end to the decades of violent cow carnage, so no one gets kicked apart by these monsters anymore.

Prominent Right-Wing blogger Erik Erikson once wrote a several thousand word essay arguing that the bit n the Bible where Jesus was all "You want to get into Heaven? It's simple Feed the Hungry, clothe the naked, help the sick, etc..don't do that and you're going to hell.  think of it this way , anything you do to your fellow man you're doing to God, so don;t piss him off"  REALLY only meant making sure your church's pastor had a nice suit and a Mercedes to roll in, because Jesus was only talking about preachers, not poor people....

Man, I'd forgotten about that whackjob.

Wiki:  "Mathews and eight other men founded the terrorist organization "The Order."... The group's first task, according to Mathews' plan, was to obtain money to support white separatism.  They robbed an adult bookstore in Spokane, Washington, which netted $369.10.

Behold, the master race :)

As someone who lived in the Bible Belt, I believe you.

I lived among churchgoers (we're talking predominantly Southern Baptist and Church of Christ [sic]) who insisted that Christ's first recorded miracle (the transformation of water into wine at the Marriage at Cana) was misinterpreted and misunderstood by almost all biblical scholars, theologians, and the overwhelming majority of Christians in all lands and throughout history, because Jebus didn't conjure up "demon rum"; oh no; rather, it was a sanctified 0% abv grape juice.

On purpose, I used to delight in listening to these sons and daughters of the soil wax on about whom they imagined Jebus to be (as opposed to, say, what is actually recorded in the scriptures) and then I'd casually say, "Well yes, but of course, Jesus was a Jew."

And then yea verily, did I behold that their visage did taketh on the manner of wine. :D

Good riddance.  Though I'm sure he's up to something nefarious.

In my dark moments I hope he goes the way of Robert Jay Mathews.   Without the property damage.


Running for higher office, undoubtedly.
