Government: A Monopoly on Uselessness June 16, 2010

Will Grigg?s Liberty Minute

Ryan Snodgrass, a Colorado rafting guide, was arrested and charged with ?obstructing government operations.? His supposed crime was to jump into Clear Creek and save a young rafting student while government-employed rescue workers dithered nearby.

Sheriff Don Kruger complained that Snodgrass "jeopardized the rescue operation." In fact, Snodgrass had ample training and was fully prepared to conduct the rescue. His composure and professionalism contrasted sharply with the potentially lethal timidity of the government-employed search and rescue team.

Jamie Hinton, volunteer fire chief for tiny Magnolia Springs, Alabama, was threatened with imprisonment for ?violating the federal and state chain of command? by organizing a town effort to protect the local bay from the BP oil spill. Terrified that the town might seize the initiative, BP and the Obama administration promise to preserve the harbor ? but Hinton and his friends stand ready to act.

Tax-feeders can be expected to punish productive citizens whose competence underscores government?s corruption and inefficiency.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
