Are these folks Soviet-style arrogant, spending money on their Big-Bro agenda as if the poor taxpayers actually had any? Or are they flat-out desperate because more and more people are realizing that census resistance is a safe, no-nonsense, and ever-increasing way for people to send a go-to-hell message to Washington? Or both?
A couple of months ago, on a visit to the Big City, my friend and I had to scoot out of what was supposed to be a fun-filled public event because we were just too, too, too creeped out, being surrounded by masses of red-shirted census-flappers. Somehow, though, the red shirts seem completely appropriate.
