Phrygian Capitol

By mike flugennockWednesday - April 8th, 2015Categories: DC Local, elections, liberty

Hey, now, Free DC! Got those Phrygian Caps ready? Because it’s just about time for the DC Democracy Vigil on Tax Day, April 15. Find out more and RSVP at the DC Cannabis Coalition:

At the beginning of this year we sought volunteers to staff a DC Democracy Vigil. Had Congress moved to overturn Initiative 71, we planned to stage at 24 hour a day vigil to highlight our discontent. But after our meeting last week with Representative Jason Chaffetz’s staff, where we offered him a chance to reset relations with DC residents, we came away thinking Congressional leaders are not going to lift a finger for us! We have no choice but to escalate protests NOW to ruin their fake “freedom” brand and see them exposed for what they are: Oppressors.

So… y’ever wonder why the Statue Of Freedom on top of the Capitol Dome isn’t wearing a Phrygian Cap? Check it out here…

In 1854, when sculptor Thomas Crawford was preparing models for sculpture for the United States Capitol, Secretary of War Jefferson Davis (later to be the President of the Confederate States of America) insisted that a Phrygian cap not be included on a Statue of Freedom, on the grounds that “American liberty is original and not the liberty of the freed slave”. The cap was not included in the final bronze version that is now in the building.

Ye Olde Colonial Constituents Day

By mike flugennockSunday - February 8th, 2015Categories: DC Local, elections, liberty, right wingnuts

Congratulations, DC! Your new plantation overseer — that is, the new chairman of the House Oversight Committee — is a Mormon with an injection-molded face, one Jason Chaffetz of Utah.

Seeing as how part of his job is getting in the way of the people of Washington, DC when they try and govern themselves, then perhaps he might be interested in such issues as traffic, parking, trash pickup, Metro subway fires, and that goddamn’ streetcar project that keeps falling behind schedule.

Join us as we take these and other grievances to our new colonial governor at his office in the Rayborn Building on March 17… won’t you?
