It's Mencken time...

It seems that the time has now come for the next revolt.

As Mencken so eloquently put it, "Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats."

I can't think of a more fitting end to this.

Talk of sedition is usually not taken very lightly, in spite of our (supposed) First Amendment rights, but that has not stopped many, mostly lawyers, from subverting those rights, since they think that the mere thought of such an act is, at the least, distasteful.

Such is the case with both the modern hoplophobe, and the typical 'Liberal' of this country.

Oh, well. The day has come and gone and it seems not another soul will notice that the God-damned Government has forsaken absolutely ALL of its proscribed restrictions, and written themselves a check for doing anything that they wish, now and forever, no matter what 'We the People' have to say about it.

I have thought long and hard about what it is to 'Be Free' and enjoy the fruits of that whole 'Pursuit of Happiness' thing. It has ALWAYS struck me as fundamental that private property is a cornerstone of that ideal, that one's home is his castle, and that it should be able to be passed from generation to generation, if desired.

No longer will the private citizen be able to say, "Fuck Off," to the local zoning board. My municipality could just as easily pass an ordinance tomorrow demanding that my deed be turned over to the town, for Its use. Greater good and all.

Bullshit, I say.

The day of individual freedom has seen another black and ominous cloud pass over it today.

When will the throat slittin...I mean, rain start?

Ahh, Mencken understood how it works -- it's to the genius of Karl Rove that this administration made such comments more illegal FIRST that has kept us all so quiet. And oh, re your comment on my blog -- you were right and I acknowledge that and clarify my intent... good to find your blog ... you have a lot to say
