Burning Man Embraces the Freedom

This is totally awesome:

Come celebrate TOTAL FREEDOM at BUNDYFEST, just across the street from the Cliven Bundy Ranch, in Bunkerville, Nevada! 240 bands, 24 hours a day, for a SOLID ROCKIN’ MONTH!!!!

*PENIS ERECTION CONTEST: Erect the largest penis in the open desert, win valuable prize! (tbd)

BACKGROUND: For years, we paid permitting fees to hold Burning Man on the beautiful Playa in Northern Nevada. But now, Cliven Bundy has shown us a NEW WAY! ABSOLUTE FREEDOM! Bundy has declared the entire area surrounding Bundy Ranch as a TOTALLY RULES-FREE ZONE! ANYTHING GOES! WOO-HOO!!!

Why should Burning Man end on September 1st? Swing down to Vegas for a few days for some R&R, a few good buffets, and then HEAD ON UP TO BUNDYFEST! All 50,000+ Burning Man participants are invited to attend — and as many more as can make the trip from anywhere in the world! 100,000? 250,000? THE SKY IS THE LIMIT AT BUNDYFEST! The desert surrounding Bundy’s ranch is LIMITLESS!

You really have to watch the video on facebook.

    Why not at the ranch? All we have to do is not recognize his sovereignty over his private property.

    I lol’ed at the penis erection contest, although it should also be a timed contest – person to maintain the boner the longest (both physically and chronologically speaking) gets one of Bundy’s cattle for a proper steak dinner.

    Unfortunately, his trigger-happy buddies would probably not accept that argument. Keep it across the street for safety.

    Missouri GOP House panel to discuss impeaching Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon
    April 21, 2014
    BY JASON HANCOCK The Star’s Jefferson City correspondent

    JEFFERSON CITY — The long shot effort to remove Gov. Jay Nixon from office will get underway on Wednesday, when a state House committee will hold a hearing on three articles of impeachment.

    While the chances that Nixon will actually be impeached are minuscule, the House Judiciary Committee Chairman Stanley Cox had said a hearing would be conducted if the sponsors of the articles of impeachment requested one.

    Republican lawmakers have raised three complaints against the Democratic governor they believe rise to the level of misconduct and neglect of duty that warrant impeachment.

    @Sly: That was the most brilliant bit. If I didn’t have to work, I’d totally be there. Burning Man’s for poseurs these days — this would actually rock. Imagine a complete Woodstock-style love-in, drum circles, etc. I also want there to be major exhibits by both Mexico and the Shoshone Nation labeled “Ask Us About Sovereignty and Historical Land Claims!!”

    This is an awesome idea. I love this kind of stuff. It’s in the same vein as my idea for dildoguns – real, actual guns that look like male members, that could be carried by folks like us at open-carry events and in businesses that advertise how they welcome open-carry in their establishments. You can just imagine a business owner or manager asking someone carrying a dildogun to leave the premises, because he’s making other patrons uncomfortable and they don’t want their kids to see someone carrying around a large replica penis. Then, those whose 2nd Amendment rights have been so infringed can say things like, “I just like having my dildogun with me at all times,” and “it takes a good guy with a dildogun to stop a bad guy with a dildogun” and “there’s nothing in the constitution that says my gun can’t look like a dildo!” and so forth. As a bonus, we might be treated to the sight of Wayne LaPierre standing in front of a large crowd with a big black dildo(gun) in his hands, having to stand up for the 2nd Amendment right to own and carry one. Also amusing would be the knots conservative elected officials would be tying themselves into in an effort to outlaw dildoguns after having claimed for years that there’s no basis for outlawing other weapons based on the way they look (having been styled as assault-type weapons). Fun for everyone!

    Of course not; he’s one of these guys who thinks the county sheriff is all powerful. He just doesn’t believe that the federal government has the right to own land except for buildings and military bases, so it shouldn’t be able to own the BLM land he’s using. How convenient…

    Violet says:

    @Jennifer: I think this is a great idea, but there’s no need to point out that it’s a d1ldogun. It’s just a gun. If people get upset, then start with the “my second amendment rights” stuff. Otherwise, a blamk look and, “This is my gun. I have a right to carry it.” with a quizzical look when someone asks you not to show it in public would do just fine.

    It’s similar to white people getting upset when black people have guns. It’s not about the right to bear arms. It’s about their right to do what they want and to not be either offended or scared by something other people do.

    First, he’s a Democrat.

    Second, he’s the member of the wrong political party

    Third, he’s got an IQ greater than the combined IQ of all the teatards in Missouri.

    @efgoldman: Jeez, how about a little history?

    Blue Jacket or Weyapiersenwah (c. 1743 – c. 1810) was a war chief of the Shawnee people, known for his militant defense of Shawnee lands in the Ohio Country. Perhaps the preeminent American Indian leader in the Northwest Indian War, in which a pan-tribal confederacy fought several battles with the nascent United States, he was an important predecessor of the famous Shawnee leader Tecumseh.

Then, when a young cousin of mine was diagnosed with myeloma, and many of us had cheek swabs taken to determine if we could donate bone marrow, I learned that I’m of fairly recent African-American ancestry. I can’t tell you how much I love that.
