    Other than quitting work, and going dependent on the Gubberment teat (which would suck (!!!) for more than one reason), is there any way to quit “feeding the pig”, and still maintain our dignity (from outside a jail cell)?

    • April 6, 2015 at 11:22 pm

      Only if one is wealthy enough to invest in non-taxed state and muni bonds and live off the interest. Or, go off grid and live by barter, foraging etc.

    So…this consulate. Might it be expanded, say to Texas size, so that the secession to a land outside our borders might be accomplished right within them? I like it. No silence. The real Force be with us.

    • April 6, 2015 at 10:25 pm

      I’d say The Situation Room if that name hadn’t been so thoroughly recently sullied by DC ilk.

      • April 6, 2015 at 10:25 pm

        Oh…2 winners?

      • April 6, 2015 at 10:33 pm

        The Double Down might also be apropos; certainly a gamble, and the stakes could not be higher.

      Curse you, interventor! That was my immediate thought.
      Rebel Alliance HQ might be a bit too blatant.
      The Free Men’s Club, with the bar being the Manumission.
      Or going to the punny side, the Manu Mission.
      Perhaps membership cards could be called ‘Letters of Marque’?

    • April 7, 2015 at 12:36 am

      That’s two for Double Downs, this here club a dimocracy, or a republic?

      And for that matter, The New Republic (oh yeah, been done, kinda)

      Or The Consulate, which is everything this club would be.

      • April 7, 2015 at 2:21 pm
        B Woodman

        Ummm. . . no, NOT “The New Republic”.
        That is the title of a leftist Libtard magazine that espouses anything BUT a Republic.

      • April 7, 2015 at 3:29 pm

        The New Republic is the original progressive rag — 1911, or so.

      • April 7, 2015 at 5:07 pm

        Yup, like I said, been done and badly, ruined a perfectly good word for a nearly perfect system of governance; actually Old Republic might be better…and “progressive” is another one that the regressives hijacked and ruined forever.

    I’m tempted to say The Diogenes Club, as in the Sherlock Holmes stories. It would be in keeping with Damon’s dignified demeanor.

    As for the bar, at Trek cons, we always called the bar The Bottom Half Of Infinity. Which would be in keeping with Damon, Sam, Zed. etc.’s sense of humor.
