1 I Stand With Big Sodomy!  Sep 1, 2014 10:04:47pm

As much as I rag on bad cops lately, It’s good to remember how many good cops there are. Even bad cops don’t deserve this %$%#$.
This is so scary. Thanks Dark!
I didn’t even realize there was a group of sovereign citizens here in Austin.

And what is the deal with the firemen? Is the thought of total strangers, saving their fat heads from an inferno, too oppressive for them?

I never encountered that particular scam, but I do remember a similar one a few years back when I was in grad school. I had some kids show up at my door claiming they were selling magazines for a fundraising group so they could win a trip. It had a similar setup, with magazine subscriptions being worth points. Each magazine had its own value and all I needed to do was hand over cash or a check.

I told the kids that I didn’t buy magazines or newspapers anymore and wished them luck, then closed the door. I’m wondering now if it was the same group making a trial run with a different scam, but who knows.

Glibertarians think the fire department should be private and everyone pay them directly for their service. That’s worked *so* well in the past.

That plus a desire to intimidate government employees generally. It’s possible this “Sovereign Citizen” group was planning a campaign of harassment and intimidation as a follow-on in order to induce government employees to quit their jobs. Such tactics have worked in other countries. They have seldom if ever worked well here.

Anyone who openly declares himself to be a “sovereign citizen” should also then automatically abdicate his rights to due process, search and seizure and cruel and unusual punishment…
