Sufferin' Sovereign: A Nation of One

Sometimes drawing editorial panels is like being Don Corleone: "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." I swore I was putting down the pen for a hiatus, and it starts up all over again: local hero and militia-man Schaeffer Cox has been brandishing his concealed weapon of staggering Constitutionalist intellect in court:
"Cox took up almost all of the time during Friday’s 20-minute hearing discussing the concept of sovereign citizenship but some times made vaguely threatening comments about the court system and the federal government.
“There’s a lot of people that would just as soon come and kill you in the night than come in your courtroom and argue during the day,” Cox told District Court Judge Jane Kauvar.
He made mention of “soulless federal assassins” that have come to Fairbanks to provoke a violent incident.
However, Cox said he is seeking a “peaceful coexistence” with the court system as long as they stay out of his business. He said “trigger happy” members of the militia looking for a fight need to be removed from its ranks.

“I am a sovereign, a man of peace, but capable of war,” he said."

Yee-ha... Palin's "reloaded" rhetorical posse saddles up behind like-minded reactionaries exemplified by Commander Miller, and the Alaskan trifecta is complete. 
He also told an Alaska State Trooper after the hearing the militia has the troopers “outmanned, outgunned and we could probably have you all dead in one night.” Chris Freiberg/Fairbanks Daily New-Miner
FWIW: this chilling "Insurrection Timeline" is the best breakdown of the so-called isolated incidents from the supposed few bad apples out there that have cropped up over the past couple years: at the very least it puts people like Cox into proper perspective.
