Better Dead Than Fire Engine Red

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, schools, 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.
