How proud we are here in Michigan to be the mother state of so many distinguished screwballs. Everyone knew that Tim MacVeigh and his crew were headquartered here, but that was not even the beginning. The Michigan "Militia" were famous before that for their crazy leaders, their comedic rushing about in the woods playing assassins and guerrillas, and their psychotic pronouncements on the events of our times.
Now comes the arrest of eight or nine "hutaree" "militia" from the southern part of Michigan, who were, it is alleged, laying plans for the murder of democracy. If they hadn't had more dangerous weapons than the whole country of Belgium, they might have been ignored and laughed off. To become a hutaree, one needs to have abandoned all sense of proportion and civility, and to have fallen in love with guns and bullshit. If you get an erection when someone mentions the word "grenade," then you might be a red-necked hutaree.
Let me tell y'all out there in the non-Michigan world, most of us here are actually perfectly sane and have no plans for plundering, pillaging or chaos. Most of us look to make our society more unified, not more schizoid.
