“Your town sucks, dude.” Nice segment.

Seriously? His urban plan is to get rid of streets and push for communal areas and parks rather than backyards.

There’s a few places like this. Where I live for one. Radburn. It was designed to minimize the reliance on cars. And I’m with Stewart on the architectural controls.

The current version of this is the transit village to get people out of cars and walk to destinations.

Pretty odd coming from someone who is urging liberty, freedom, and minimal government interference. Homeowner associations are pretty far from freedom with rules that can govern down to what your house exterior can look like, whether you can put up flags or signs (political or otherwise), or even religious objects.

But again, this is Beck, facts are like oil to his water.

This seems like a good time to announce the autonomous compound I will be founding near Terre Haute Indiana, The Firehouse (www.iiiwannarockandrollallnight.com), exclusively for patriots in the Kiss Army.

The Firehouse will be a small planned community of 3,500 - 7,000 families of rawkin’ Americans who voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons’ ideal of Righteous Liberty: You say you wanna go for a spin. The party’s just begun, we’ll let you in. You drive us wild, we’ll drive you crazy.

On the other hand, if we can persuade Beck to go Galt in his Utopia with a few select thousand of his devoted followers, where’s the downside?

Cool article on frozen methane bubbles at NPR - with video of people lighting the bubbles.

Gene Simmons is going to send you SO many royalty demand letters.

Probably 10 just for that post.

From SPLC:

Convicted extortionist a key player in Idaho citadel project

In the past few days, attacks on the much-ballyhooed Citadel fortress and its planned gun-building plant have come from Alabama Patriot leader and blogger Michael Brian Vanderboegh and survivalist author and so-called “sovereign citizen” James Wesley, Rawles. Rawles (who, like many sovereigns, punctuates his name in a bizarre way) generally is credited with coming up with the idea of building a fortified community in the Pacific Northwest — what he has called the “American Redoubt” — for Christian Patriots.

Kerodin, public records show, was convicted in 2004 of federal extortion, attempted extortion and possession of an illegal firearm charges. The accusations were filed in Virginia after Kerodin, purporting to be a counter-terrorism expert, attempted to coerce shopping mall owners in the Washington, D.C., area to hire him to develop better security. He served 30 months in federal prison and now can’t legally possess firearms as a felon.

“Who would want to go live in a community run by this guy?” Vanderboegh asked on his website, where he spends most of his time bashing the federal government. “Not that there’s a chance in hell he’ll even have a viable firearms business … let alone his Citadel (community).”

Rawles, for his part, said on his survivalist blog that he was “quite troubled to learn that the main promoter of Citadel III is a convicted felon.”

re: #10 Our Precious Bodily Fluids

That’s pretty much why I don’t think this going anywhere. Starting to look and smell like a scam.

If people really wanted to live like this, they would. No one makes me drink beer on the 4th. We go with wine.

” Starting to look and smell like a scam.”

Yeah, but I saw that not a few rubes are making excuses for his felony conviction saying in essence that the federal guvmint turns patriots into felons with bullshit laws. They don’t seem interested in seeing what his conviction was actually about———they just assume that he was a railroaded patriot.

I hafta figure it’s a scam too——but think how stupid to scam a bunch of gun enthusiasts! They’d hunt him down…

Lemme tighten that up a bit more.

But again, this is Beck, facts are like water to his snake oil.

This place is never going to be built - they will get no farther than collecting a lot of money from potential investors - so Beck can go on all he wants about his vision of the ideal Patriot community.
