So Very Quaint: What wingnuts dream of.

“GROUP TO BUILD ARMED NEIGHBORHOOD FORTRESS”

“Something that I can’t predict, but am hoping for, is a greater level of social interaction,” the organizer, who blogs under the names Vernon and VJ, wrote. “Neighborhood barbeques, musical jam sessions and plays at the amphitheater or the Citadel Society club house, interest groups, clubs, organized and spontaneous activities of all sorts. I enjoy board games, myself, and used to go to a game club every Friday night. We’ll have some great pubs with local brews, walking and bicycle paths, a firing range you don’t have to drive a half hour or more to get to. Maybe a hill with a rope tow for sliding down on inner tubes in the winter time. Militia training will also have a unifying social aspect to it.”

1. Is the wall to keep out 'undesirable elements'

or to keep the inmates confined within the asylum?

4. All that warm, fuzzy social interaction will fall apart soon enough

when those maladroit bastards start accidentally shooting each other during their "militia training."

6. Fine. Build these little secession gun nut nests from coast to coast.

Stop taxing them or providing any federal service or private service supported by the federal government (y'know, food, power, health, infrastructure, banking, insurance).

Say hello to oblivion.

7. Hey, don't forget the no taxes part!!

It will be interesting how they think they will pay for this. Fortresses of solitude don't come cheap.

I wonder how many homeowners are going to chip in for the cost of maintaining and manning the barricades 24/7?
