Sherman Oaks, California

Writer Sarah Lavender Smith, who is on the road with her family for a year, lists the biggest mistakes that people make when planning a year-long trip. Most of the advice reduces to "Stop being control freaks."

I'm always a little suspect of such unverified stories. This could be slightly romanticized, or even a total fabrication. No way to verify.

But put that aside. The fundamental point of defending our rights against our own government is absolutely spot on! IF the story is true (and I have heard of somewhat similar incidents), hats off to the author.

But the truly disturbing part of this blog is the many comments from people who think it's somehow wrong to stand up to bullying government employees.

It just shows how far removed most of today's Americans are from with our (perhaps idealized) individualists of times gone by.

We won't lose our freedoms via invasion or sudden martial law -- we'll give 'em up slowly but surely. We've been doing that for decades.

It's THAT docile compliance (often in the guise of required patriotic behavior) that is both discouraging and scary.
