Is there a live feed of the storming? The convoy for no apparent reason finally doing something amusing would be something

My guess is that somebody got caught with their hand in the cookie jar. Probably one of the leaders hiding in the RV which is currently under siege by peace loving patriots.

Didn't Napoleon say something about this type of situation?

My favorite thing is to watch Libertarians try to Galt themselves into their "paradise"...only to discover that their "paradise" is only populated by grifters and narcissistic sociopaths.

Their leaders called the Deep State?  Shocking!

They just want a tour of your RV. It's all perfectly innocent and peaceful. What's the problem?

You know...I've never actually read Atlas Shrugged. I have, quite literally, hundreds of audiobooks from Fantasy and Science Fiction. I've just never felt that I really needed to.

I'm reminded of a story about police abandoning a rough neighborhood until things sorted themselves out. Called it a "self cleaning oven".

The comments on the feed, when the cops show up, are just priceless.
"Don't show ID! Get their badge numbers!"
"Is anyone filming this?"

Why, they sound just like a bunch of feelthy liebruls!

You mean vichyssoise? A recipe that has been popular in France for a couple of centuries?

Alton Brown has always been a trendsetter.

The cops had left and they were commenting on it backing up and moving forward while they were standing right next to it

Wouldn't be surprised if a false-flagged dark-money funded operation claiming to be with Antifa (Antifa isn't an organization or a movement) and they'll storm and attack the truckers


....during the anti-abortion protests following the SCOTUS ruling.

How about a ragtag party of adventurers attempting to discredit the gold standard in favor of a bimetallic system that would allow for the free coinage of silver?

I'm not saying it's canon, no one has proof that that's what Baum intended. It appears to be one of the rare fan theories that predates the internet. Fun to think about, though. Certainly more worthy of literary analysis than the output of a meth-addled hypocrite.
