Chan Lowe at Marc Brands Liberty - Saddam Invaded Country Without Provocation - cartoon commentary on one of Saddam's crimes. Who else that we know could be similarly accused? Hehe. [smith2004]

# Daniel Patrick Welch at Strike the Root - Happy Independence Day, Daddy - "to the tune of 'America the Beautiful' in honor of the US 'handover' of Iraq--to George's dad's oil buddies!" Hehe. [root]

# Aaron Turpen, The Militant Libertarian - Independence Day Celebration Reminder... - how to celebrate Independence Day like a good slave. Would be funny if it weren't so true. [claire]

# Claire Wolfe - Freedom is not a &^%$#@! spectator sport - a rant about freedom "fighters" who expect others to fight for them. [claire]

Let's call it the backside of the freedom movement, as in "sits on its backside and doesn't move." This is the side that rouses its ugly self now and then in the same way that a TV toad rouses itself to order wifey to go fetch another beer.

These are the people who can't spell G-O-O-G-L-E, but who can compose e-mails to complete strangers asking questions like, "Can you give me province-by-province statistics on slave labor in China?"

These are people who can invest thousands in phony offshore schemes offering "3,000 percent return!" but who don't have 25 bucks to send to GOA, KABA, or JPFO. Oh. And of course they're also the people who, when they do dash headlong into trouble, are the first to write to every freedom organization in the book, demanding legal aid.

These are the people who turn up on public forums and announce that they're looking for somebody to supply them with "really good fake ID." And oh yes, they need it right now. And cheap.

# Al Lawrence at The Mansfield News Journal - Judge makes exception to bail bond conditions - Hunter will be allowed to visit a docot in Massachusetts, but not go to a family reunion in Kansas this weekend or look for a job in Montana. [clairefiles]
