Maybe this Joseph Almond guy is alright after all; the site's pretty good, but between noon and five o'clock yesterday it seems that he temporarily morphed into a latter day prophet, or at least a sendup of one (hopefully he was intending it to be self conscious satire). But now he looks sane again. It may have been the rush that finding out that you, yes you, the working class guy who didn't believe he could make a difference, waking up to find out that the world is your oyster, or the guy may actually have some problems. I hope he doesn't; like I said, this quasi-religious stuff has an air of satire around it, he sounds like he's laughing at all of it while he writes,so maybe this is just a temporary stab at inspired prose. Can't say I agree with his anti-tax stuff, I payed. (And like Jello Biafra, I'd pay a whole lot more, if I could afford it, if I knew it was really going to help people in need instead of lining beaurocrats' pockets). But to each his own.
I can't help but thinking about the guy on a hunger strike who's demanding that the IRS explain to him why you have to pay taxes; specifically, I can't help but thinking that the more liberal minded folks in his home town in Texas are calling him "A damn fool" behind his back.
But Mr. Almond's site is pretty good, he knows his stuff, and is rather obsessive about putting all the articles available on the Patriot act on his website, which is good. And if he succeeds in leafletting the U.S. it'll be a mighty big share of good karma points on his bill.
