Yes to Killington

Let's just say I wouldn't put this into the positive coverage category.

"After townspeople's courageous vote not to help educate children in poorer communities, Killington officials were presented with a New Hampshire state flag by representatives of the Free State Project, a Libertarian fringe movement whose members don't actually believe in states but nonetheless want one so all the people who don't believe in states can live in it. "

Wow!

We've hardly even begun and the statists are ALREADY talking about starting a war.

My message to them:  Bring it on.

I couldn't believe that was the actual quote and then I looked for myself. Amazing.

Very slimy of them to mix the meanings of "state" in an effort to criticize us.

I didn't realize this but, they're going to be saving about $10,000/year/person !

Their incomes would effectivly be increased by around a forth.

Hopefully if the current conservatives, libertarians, and free staters in NH get the StateWide property tax that the supremes forced on them abolished, they'll even be more free.

It took George Washington himself to resolve the dispute. Washington sagely suggested that it would be wise to avoid the "necessity of coercion."

What's the probability the Vermont legislature would remember this before having tax collectors drag the town away?  I guess it's close to zilch.

Truely justice wouldn't appear to be served if the Vermont legislature can nullify the towns complaint, if all other parties are in agreement.

That's like giving a man accused of theft the right to optionally nullify his conviction if he's found guilty.

My god. They are SCARED, aren't they?

They're now resorting to ad hominem attacks and name-calling.

Shall we take turns shooting them down over this, or shall we all write LTEs on the same day? 8)

As long as the FSP is going to have these kind of articles written about it, we might as well get some entertainment out of it.

I propose the creation of an FSP Dunk Tank Fund. Here's a rough idea of how it would work: participants would pledge a sum of money to be donated to the FSP everytime a journalist throws a "hardball" at it. For example, I'm prepared to pledge a donation of $25 everytime a journalist pitches a "hardball".

Obviously, what constitutes a "hardball" would be subjective, so we'd need a way to evaluate them. Perhaps a panel could volunteer to evaluate submissions, or they could simply be posted here where forum members could vote on them. Key criteria, of course, would be mentions of those time-honered platitudes such as "the less fortunate", "the children", or "those selfish bastards".  ;)

In general, any screed which conjures up the image of an foaming liberal prepared to slap us to death with his hanky would qualify, and then we'd pony up.

Whaddya think? Do I have any takers?

I think we'd all be better off to write diplomatic, letters to the editors.

My reading is that the article actually agrees with the secessionist sentiments of the Killingtonians but takes a swipe at both the FSP and Benson..

Actually, I like the dunk tank idea, but I think we should use it to raise money from the liberals. Make a java applet with pictures of people the left loves to hate (hell, anybody, for that matter). They can pony up a buck to play. They 'throw a hardball' by writing an attack against their selected enemy, and the program semantically scores each word, with only swears and references to Hitler being disqualifying words.
