"Although we give lip service to the notion of freedom, we know that government is no longer the servant of the people but, at last, has become the people's master. We have stood by like timid sheep while the wolf killed -- first the weak, then the strays, then those on the outer edges of the flock, until at last the entire flock belonged to the wolf."

Yes, a very tense situation for us wolfs that are still out here for sure. a sad one for sure.

    Destroy the Fed, Destroy the problem.
     -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    It's time for the sheep dogs and wolf hounds to form a pack and drive those wolves to extinction, Then through honest education morph the sheeple into self sufficient hounds and dogs that no wolf would dare mess with. Then our once great nation could again rightfully be called "the land of the free,and home of the brave." Just a thought from an old dog with a few teeth left.
     -- Anonymous     
    Anonymous, great on point analogy, said well. We hold this truth to be self evident. A very accurate observation.

    Well said group, so far, but Reston and Waffler haven't weighed in yet.
     -- jim k, Austin, Tx     
    jim, in order to "weigh in" you need to have some standing. Communists don't have that...they're nothing more than parasitic mouthpieces for policies of theft. ;)

    I always liked his leather fringed jacket. You would think a man of such style imagery would be a little bit more subltle and thoughful in his anaylysis. His analogy about wolves is extremly unfortunate and untimely. Is it not the Feds who are protecting the wolves and reintroduced them into our northern plains. The sheeple (or should I say sheep herders and cowboys) want to destroy the wolf. The American People have stood by like timed sheep to see cowboys, and land and swamp fillers, and monutain top miners, etcetera and all other types of gluttoness, mindless destroyers of all that is good get away with it. That God the Feds are protecting the wolves.
     -- Waffler, Smith     
    As we know wolves protect and maintain the environment. And the Fed should be like wolves in doing the same thing.
     -- Waffler, Smith     
    See jim, I told ya! LOL. Mindless, statist BullSh...
     -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    Perhaps we should be a little kinder to Waff as he is obviously insane.
