I Saw a fellow in the streets of New York wearing a t-shirt with: “Guantanamo Bay, Camp Delta” on it.

There was no joke. No ironic statement. No political message. Just the name of a prison camp where people are being held without trial by a government that considers itself accountable to nobody.

This is where we’re at now (today – God only knows what tomorrow will bring); tyranny marketed as casualwear.

And people are buying it, literally.

An the irony, in it’s finest form, here, will be realized when, or if, a Fair Tax kicks in.

I’m all for Fair Tax, mind you. I also appreciate irony. I’m not quite so keen on tyranny. That’s the Prudent but Optimistic Gentleman in me.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
