I'd say the threat level from government has increased since 1996, wouldn't you guys?
If I knew how to get myself and my boys plugged into a local militia, I'd do it in a heartbeat.
I would say that, to an anxiety-provoking level. Mr. Johnson was speaking not only on behalf of conditions present in '96, but, prophetically of current events.
Ditto on the local militia, but I'd rather join a neighborhood group of the same type of construction. And that's been something at which I have no skill (what people-skills?) in forming.
