Yo! Oregon Militiamen! No "Snacks"! Eat Each Other!

Today's NY Fiwhwrap reported the backstory of the so-called "Sagebrush Rebellion" that has produced the comic opera in southeast Oregon. Read it here. In the meantime, Tom Tomorrow uses a young boy to illustrate the childishness of the Teabagger Rebels in rural Oregon. The wingnuts have taken to social media to appeal for aid, especially for snacks. My kingdom for a Slim-Jim! The law enforcement officers who ring the wildlife refuge should impose an embargo on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and gave the "rebels" a little experience with lack of food. If it's good enough for the Syrian government to starve the poor souls in Madaya, no snacks for Malheur! Let the crybabies starve! If this is (fair & balanced) geopolitics, so be it.
