News From The American Redoubt:


The Economist (a leftist magazine and web site) did a pretty decent writeup on the American Redoubt featuring JWR. There are a few back-handed compliments, but overall it’s a good article. On the other hand, the comments (367, at last count) are pretty amusing and some are outrageously ill-informed. FYI: No, Idaho is not a “Blue” state. No, JWR has not undergone heart surgery. He is very healthy and active. While not a farmer, he is a rancher, and he most definitely does live inside the American Redoubt. He also coined the term “American Redoubt” in 2011–not “more than 10 years ago”, as one comment alleged.

Thanks to the Peoples Republic of Oregon, they just made buying bottled products more competitive in border states. So in Idaho you will only pay a 6% on the dollar surcharge (sales tax) for your can of pop, and you do not have to mess around with returning the stinky can/bottle later on. You’ve gotta love those Communists over on the Coast. They are such great micro managers. The truth is that these clowns never met a tax they didn’t fall in love with. – RBS
