"Are We Rome Yet?"

"Are we Rome yet, Daddy?"
A group of libertarians gathered in Las Vegas recently for an event called "FreedomFest." We debated whether America will soon fall, as Rome did.

Amerika fell on Sep 11 2001. It just hasn't hit bottom and shattered YET.

Yes we are, and Glenn Greenwald just lit the fire this morning...

And I for one am going to enjoy the fire, exponentially exploding heads in WDC notwithstanding. In fact, Glenn's timing is impeccable as he posted this latest Snowden revelation just as Congress was starting this mornings hearings on the NSA. FABULOUS. I can see Feinstein's face about now, Clapper/Alexander notwithstanding. The Capitol clean up crew are going into overtime.

Government should not be surprised, when, failing to keep to the law themselves, citizens follow their example.

As long as we're on the subject of Imperial Rome, here's a thought from a guy who'd be a perfect fit in Washington D.C.:

"Utinam populus Romanus unam cervicem haberet!
(Would that the Roman people had but one neck!)"
-- Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus (AKA Caligula)
