Breakfast At Libertarian Summer Camp

This bacon photo alone should make this a must read story, no?

This does not seem political to me, but if anyone objects just let me know...It's more funny than anything IMHO.

Robert Smith/NPR It's not just bacon; it's libertarian bacon.

Last weekend, a group of libertarians and anarchists gathered in the woods of northern New Hampshire for the annual Porcupine Freedom Festival, aka PorcFest.
I went up for breakfast.
Lucky for me, George Mandrik has brought along 150 lbs. of bacon, which he's selling out of a tent to finance his trip to the festival. He does this thing where he weaves 10 pieces of bacon into what he calls "a little blanket," and cooks the whole thing up.
I tell him that I want to experience a government-free breakfast, and George makes his best pitch.

He tells me proudly that, although he makes his living cooking, he has no permit to sell food. He's never been inspected. And he does not pay taxes.

It's not politics, it's BACON. Doesn't that make it about religion?
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)
