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.
Breakfast At Libertarian Summer Camp : Planet Money : NPR
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.
