    on Destination channel; most of these folks have no military experience and are really very silly people it seems.
    They see themselves as the inheritors of colonial militias but those militias operated as regular units with training and support from the British regulars during the French and Indian Wars and the militias got kicked around pretty well by the British until they were trained and made into a regular army by European volunteers.

    Today's militias are nothing like those units. They are now training for another Katrina to defend their homes against hordes of urban savages.  During Hugo, folks here made out OK with no need for militias
