I don't get it. Why are these assholes still there? Why can they move around totally unbothered by law enforcement?

I like that:

As I went walking I saw a sign there 
And on the sign it said "No Trespassing." 
But on the other side it didn't say nothing, 
That side was made for you and me.
The armed group now occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge say they want to take the land back for "The People," but they mean certain people, and you're not invited.

Correction, he doesn't want you to have choices, especially when they compete with established big business monopolies. You can have fast internet as long as it comes from a certain company at a certain price. I think it's time to start breaking up the monopolies again!

Quantum random numbers. If the Many Worlds Interpretation [1] is correct, then there will be a parallel universe for every number. And they have a nice web API, so I wrote a python script to generate numbers for Powerball, and hence there is a parallel universe in which I have won.

It's not this one. But the fun was worth $2 :-)

This is an interesting view.
But the armed militiamen holed up in Oregon are still indefensible wingnuts.
