Two quick things:
1. In England a broke & jobless writer takes to the trees in an experiment in low-cost, low-impact self sufficiency. Very creative.
2. I think Joel “did” 419 better than I: “It’s Interesting Times Day!”
And a third:
3. Radley Balko also does today proud.
Randy Balko’s piece was pretty good. However, I would beg to differ with the following statement…
“But just for the record, let me say that taking up arms against the government is moronic and reprehensible for a host of reasons, not least of which is that there isn’t a chance in hell you’re going to win. ”
Mr. Balko was doing pretty good up to that point. There are countless examples where citizens have had to take up arms against their government, or a larger invading government. Some have won, some have lost, but often armed conflict was the only recourse the people had left.
April 19 celebrates the fact that well over 200 years ago, our forefathers did exactly that. They took up arms against their current government and ultimately WON. Objectively, there was no way they could possibly win. They took on the biggest corporate government then in existance, one which had almost limitless resources, and WON!
