RWW: would you have given the same advice to Nelson Mandela? How about Mahatma Gandhi? I’m not necessarily saying that these two guys are in the same league or even that theirs is the best approach for bringing change, but your argument is vapid. Respect the law? Why (be precise)?

Having read the story I’m impressed with just how hardcore Pete and Adam are. Unfortunately some of their more radical positions (open carry without state scrap of paper) will make it harder for them to get support for their more moderate ones (recording public officials), but I’m glad they’re fighting the good fight.

“…Massachusetts…” See what happens when you leave the U.S. for these foreign lands? Sad. If they ever cleaned up the place in a manner similar to the original Boston tea party, you’d be able to cross the harbor walking on the heads of “public servants.” Wouldn’t hold my breath for the day it’ll happen.
