Voice from the Commonwealth Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

"Your blog is bullshit"- anonymous angry French reader.
This letter to Rod Dreher over at the Corner gives us a pretty good indication, I think, of what the firefighters themselves will have to say about this.
The International voted unanimously on Wednesday to boycott a national tribute to firefighters who died on Sept. 11, in an angry response to U.S. President George Bush's rejection of a bill that included $340 million to fund fire departments.
But, then again, the International Association of Fire Fighters isn't necessarily non-partisan.
And why the heck does Washington have to give money for Fire Departments? Isn't that a local thing?
