YOU, TOO, CAN BECOME CITIZEN 430-21-4093. Yes, it's a real, live, legitimate, valid Socialist Insecurity Number and it can be yours courtesy of William Joseph Beck III. William -- aka the spirited blogger Billy Beck -- says he doesn't use it any more, so you might as well. Here, you can have his birthday, too (November 27, 1956), and his place of birth (Little Rock, Arkansas).
Billy says we're playing a game of tug-o-war with the government over this whole question of self-ownership vs. state control. His strategy? "Let go of the rope, ladies and gentlemen, and let the state fall on its ass."
I about laughed until I cried.
