Fear the People

Drudge often juxtaposes news stories humorously.  This morning is not an exception to this observation, as Drudge links to a story out of San Francisco with a headline reading Homeless Man Found With Cache of Weapons, Ammo and List of Politicians’ Names….

Immediately underneath that headline, Drudge links to another news item with a headline reading Congress concerned about people following their campaigns…

Both news stories contain the usual mainstream media hyperbole, and are hardly worth reading, with the exception of noting that Congress should fear the people, as the following quote, incorrectly attributed to Thomas Jefferson exemplifies.

“When the people fear the government, that’s tyranny; when the government fears the people, that’s freedom.”
