The minutemen still exist. I am married to one who is a Marine. Story...Hub was sitting at his desk playing the stock market as he does daily, and got a call from our in laws that were babysitting on our day off, today. Eileen had fallen and gashed her knee, and hit her head on the slate steps outside dot’s house, and an ambulance was on the way. He was out the door in a minute. He stayed there for 6 hours until son in law got home. SIL wasn’t told what happened to his mother until he got home, as to not stress him out at work. Dot is in Atlanta for biz, and I had other obligations. Dot wasn’t told either, so she would not stress. She will be home tomorrow, and will know then. Eileen had a cat scan, leg X-ray, 12 stitches, and given a brace and crutches. She is 81 years old, and a fighter. I have, always, been amazed at how fast hub takes a shower. Once a Marine, always a Marine. Oh, and yeah, my minuteman owns guns, too.Nice post. Thank you.
I'm sure the next "but, but" will be about "militia." To the gun grabbers this MUST mean a government-sponsored entity. Of course, they forget that a "militia" back then (when the Constitution was written, discussed, and ratified) was composed of like-minded PRIVATE citizens. Like the Minutemen (and hundreds of other, similar, non-governmental groups).
The "Minutemen" concept truly frightens gun grabbers.

I have a feeling we are going to be babysitting more than we are, now. Dot and hub have relied on the grands, but they might need to look into some daycare. We love helping with the grandtots, but us grands need a life, too. Not to mention, the other grands will be out of town next week; so we have double duty. I love being with my grandtots,but it can be exhausting. We already raised children, and won’t do it again, full time. Is that awful of me to say that?
