Vestal: Kootenai Co Paranoia Runs Deep

Can you imagine a world where the Kootenai County commissioners would make a stealth move to grab private property rights? A world where the handmaidens of the New World Order are the GOP trio of Dan Green, Jai Nelson and Todd Tondee? Where any day now, you’ll be prevented from doing whatever you want on your own property by an out-of-town design firm carrying water for the United Nations? No? You can’t? I guess that’s how you know you live in the real world. Lucky you. Because a lot of people live in a scary, sinister place. A place where freedom-loving Americans are “under attack” by the forces of “consensus” and “collaboration” and other “Communitarian” influences. A place where individual freedoms are being consumed by community rights. A place where the will of the people is a sham, and nameless, faceless outside forces are working constantly to mislead and manipulate you into believing otherwise/Shawn Vestal, SR. More here.

Question: Do you believe "they" are coming to get you -- whoever "they" are?
