When Irony Fades To Tragedy

As reported in the Washington Post, self-proclaimed "Christian Libertarian" Mike Vanderboegh is unapologetic on his call to break windows of Democratic Representatives to protest the Health Care Bill because it is necessary to show how this vote enrages people and could "lead to civil war" because of the rage of folks like Mr. Vanderboegh -- who will be supplying the civil war he is "warning" about. Apparently "warn" means "threaten" for Mr. Vanderboegh.

That, however, is not the funny part. This is:
Vanderboegh said he once worked as a warehouse manager but now lives on government disability checks. He said he receives $1,300 a month because of his congestive heart failure, diabetes and hypertension. He has private health insurance through his wife, who works for a company that sells forklift products.
So, to be clear, mandatory government disability insurance -- totally cool.

Mandatory health insurance -- socialist tyranny.
