Northwestern US Secedes, Joins China
"Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place."
- Frederic Bastiat
Coming to a hubristic legislature near you: Repealing Private Property. It seems that King County, Washington eco-tards are attempting to arrogate to themselves the decision about what land-owners can or cannot do with their land. From the article:
Known as the 65-10 Rule, it calls for landowners to set aside 65 percent of their property and keep it in its natural, vegetative state. According to the rule, nothing can be built on this land, and if a tree is cut down, for example, it must be replanted. Building anything is out of the question.
The pressure group responsible for this abdication of sanity is known as 1000 Friends of Washington. Quite frankly, fuck them.

When I was a raffish youthful pop-musician, I was company to pollyannas who were enamored of yelling, "You'll be the first against the wall when the revolution comes!" While I doubt they had the balls to turn such posturing into action, I am much more confident in the resolve that land-owners will demonstrate in their response to attempts at expropriation of said land.
