We don’t need no permission slips
Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams worked together to compile thie …long train of abuses… in the Declaration.
I have listed them below. What is our modern list?
I keep a file called “No Longer Free”. It is full of PDFs of the stories I see that (1) point out how we are no longer free, and (2) document the express violation of our rights. Why do I maintain such a depressing list? Because someday soon we will have to repeat Jefferson’s itemization for the whole world.
To that file I will add this story, which could be tagged “… for depriving us of our means of livelihood…”
But I suppose that could be said for any government program that requires a permission slip from our supposed masters.
