Yesterday I posted about the absurd plans of people who want to create separate armed enclaves where they hope to live free lives without the government imposing its will on them. As readers were quick to point out, while the military fortifications and weaponry envisaged may have been barely adequate in medieval times, it would take a modern army less than five minutes to overpower them.
Their biggest threat is not the government but having people laugh them out of existence. The Daily Show also got in its licks at this irresistible target in three segments, the second and third aiming at Glenn Beck’s even more grandiose nuttiness.
