Bring Back the Posse!

Alexander Cockburn explains why we should"disband SWAT teams and kindred military units, and return to the idea of voluntary posses or militias: a speedy assembly of citizen volunteers with their own weapons. Such a body at Columbine or Virginia Tech might have saved many lifes. In other words: make the Second Amendment live up to its promise."

Seriously, dude, that's not the funniest thing I've read all day, but it's damned close.

The anti-medication rant is like the punchline that makes the whole joke work: what he really wants is to go back to the 1950s, when everyone was nice and knew their place and nuts were locked up and nobody with guns ever hurt anyone..... hee, hee, hee.

I can't believe Counterpunch published it. That might be the funniest part of the whole thing.
