I was planting my garden today in Middle Tennessee when 3 Chinooks flew over. The thing about this was that they were solid black with no markings seen at all. Has anyone else seen or noticed these?

Precious metals have dipped, and I believe the crash of the dollar is coming soon. DHS is training for the coming anarchy. if the bird flu comes through the USA, it will make this revolution even more dramatic.

I live in Columbia. The helicopters you are referring to are from Ft. Campbell. They are assigned to Task Force 160, BKA the "Nightstalkers". These are the guys that carry special forces detachments around like Seal Team 6. They have all sorts of helicopters to include the CH-47 Chinook. Awesome bunch of high speed guys! Oh, and they escort UFO's back into military airspace. :)

When you see several CH-47's with sling loads containing a pallet of ammo crates, 105MM howitzer, etc, here in the US, then ya start to worry.:D

I see them all the time above my house, running training missions.

The coolest ones are the Apache Longbows - those things are just totally bad ass.

What a great job those pilots have...!

We have a lot of air and ground activity around our place also. Jacksonville Naval Air Station, Mayport Naval Station, Camp Blanding Army Post, and to a much lesser degree Kings Bay Submarine Base.
When the Iraq invasion geared up the 101st Airborne flew all their helicopters to Jacksonville to get shipped over on Navy vessels. Hundreds of helicopters, day after day, it was the most activity I had seen since Vietnam.

Twenty-nine percent of registered voters think that an armed revolution might be necessary in the next few years in order to protect liberties, according to a Public Mind poll by Fairleigh Dickinson University.

The poll, which surveyed 863 registered voters and had a margin of error of +/-3.4, focused on both gun control and the possibility of a need for an armed revolution in the United States to protect liberty.

The survey asked whether respondents agreed, disagreed, neither agreed nor disagreed or did not know or refused to respond to the statement: "In the next few years, an armed revolution might be necessary in order to protect our liberties"

Twenty-nine percent said they agreed, 47 percent said they disagreed, 18 percent said they neither agreed nor disagreed, 5 percent said they were unsure, and 1 percent refused to respond.

Results of the poll show that those who believe a revolution might be necessary differ greatly along party lines:
• 18 percent of Democrats
• 27 percent of Independents
• 44 percent of Republicans

The poll found that 38 percent of Americans who believe a revolution might be necessary support additional gun control legislation compared to 62 percent of those who don't think an armed revolt will be needed.

Dan Cassino, a professor of political science at Fairleigh Dickinson and analyst for the poll, says:

"The differences in views of gun legislation are really a function of differences in what people believe guns are for. If you truly believe an armed revolution is possible in the near future, you need weapons and you're going to be wary about government efforts to take them away."

The poll was conducted nationally between April 22 and April 28, 2013.

I was on my parents pontoon boat a few years ago. An Apache was flying straight towards us so I acted like I was being laced with bullets and fell into the river. They flew back around laughing and gave me a thumbs up.

867 is a pretty small sampling. How were the questions phrased? Also how many of these "revolutionaries actually intend to put their butts on the line or simply read about it in the papers? Riots yes! Revolution? Don't hold your breath!

Since some are talking about revolution on this post, I thought I would add my thoughts. Riots are a possibility and I agree this country needs a revolution. But the revolution we need is not of violence. We need the people to stand up for their rights and to bring America back to the great nation it was and meant to be. We need to go back to morals, faith in God, love and trust of your neighbors. The last thing I want to see is violence popping up. All that does is weakens our nation and erodes the morality of the people. However if violence comes my way I will protect my family and loved ones with any force necessary.

"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." John Adams

"The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy the gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people; then shall we both deserve and enjoy it. While, on the other hand, if we are universally vicious and debauched in our manners, though the form of our Constitution carries the face of the most exalted freedom, we shall in reality be the most abject slaves." Samuel Adams

And as far as violent revolution, one of my heroes sums it up quite well. "I am a man of peace. But if war comes to my door it will find me home." Winston Churchill
