Better Dead Than Fire Engine Red

Abby Zimet


Arguing that when you let the fire department put out your flaming
house you put your property in the hands of BIG GOVERNMENT FIRE - and
that the
tree of liberty needs to be watered from time to time with water from a
privately owned fire truck - the group Million Strong Against our Socialist Fire Departments
says there should be no public option for fire care. They also suggest
privatizing other public services - police, post office, water, sewer,
roads, sewers, busses, subways, parks, libraries, public TV and radio,
and of course the military - with trusted companies like Halliburton,
Wal-Mart and Burger King taking them on, preferably with goody bags
with purchase.
