Libertarian Reluctantly Calls Fire Department

From the Onion:

CHEYENNE, WY—After attempting to contain a living-room blaze started by a cigarette, card-carrying Libertarian Trent Jacobs reluctantly called the Cheyenne Fire Department Monday. "Although the community would do better to rely on an efficient, free-market fire-fighting service, the fact is that expensive, unnecessary public fire departments do exist," Jacobs said. "Also, my house was burning down." Jacobs did not offer to pay firefighters for their service.
Hat tip to Justin.

  1. I laughed really, really hard at this. Perfect satire.


You are the reason why I do not write privately. I would love to hear your thoughts, whether you agree or not.
