Two questions

If I could, I'd pose two questions to Bundy and his posse out there in Nevada.

1. While there is some basis for arguing that the original thirteen colonies and Texas and California were at least at one time "sovereign" (though not much of one, given that they all willingly joined the US), exactly how is Nevada sovereign? Its entire existence is owed to the US, which created it as a political unit.

2. (And this is the one I'd have answered if only one could be) If you don't even acknowledge the US's existence, if you think the USA is an illegitimate, imaginary thing, why the hell are you always waving American flags around? Just one non-hypocritical, non-venal reason, please.
