    Listen my children, and you shall hear<br>
    Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere.<br>
    TO ARMS! TO ARMS! To spades and hoes?!?<br>
    Bury ALL your guns, before the king knows!<br>
    <br>
    Imagine the redcoats, filled with delight<br>
    Not one armed colonist stood ready to fight.<br>
    Lexington and Concord were burned to the ground<br>
    Crackling flames the only heard sound.<br>
    <br>
    More taxes were levied, more rights denied;<br>
    For lack of arms, patriots died.<br>
    So listen my children, and you SHALL hear<br>
    No country was born, only suffering and fear.<br>
    <br>
    So... if tyranny you want, then bury, and pray<br>
    For the speedy arrival of that brighter day.<br>
    But if liberty you love and you yearn to be free,<br>
    Then live by this motto... DON'T TREAD ON ME.<br>

    I like that Brian. Thanks for sharing. I have been to Lexington Green several times. I've walked from Buckman's Tavern on the edge of the Green (where those farmers gathered in 1775, waiting for the British army) out to the area of the Green where they stood and held their ground....telling the most powerful army in the world at the time...NO...not just NO, but HELL NO..."no guns will be confiscated today..!!". I like to think I would have the courage to be there myself if a unit of the U.S. Army comes to collect arms and ammunition from us...to be honest...not sure though. Hope I never have to find out.

    Don,

    It wouldn't be the US Army, it would be a coalition force flying the UN flag. Mostly Chinese, I'd bet.
