I think that the people who suspect that Jade Helm is an exercise intended to capture guns from people in the southwest are all loonies.
Then again, I was at least a little suspicious that Cheney was planning to overthrow the government and have himself and his puppet remain in power for several more years. Seems silly now, but at the time.... I really didn't trust him. Still don't, in fact.
So after Jade Helm is over, I am sure that the wingnuts of Texas will say See? Because we was on alert, they couldn't do it! Couldn't take our guns, our wimmen, our precious bodily fluids! We won!
