Rugged American Individualism

“A lot of people don’t have the guts or the time to invest in protesting,” says Alex Nizzini of Houston, Texas. “Hunger strike is perhaps the most extreme way of dealing with a government that is being difficult, but I have no choice.” Whenever someone stops, Nizzini tells them of his web site to get information on his vital struggle against the oppressive government. “This affects everybody in the United States, so listen up,” he says. “This just won’t stand in a civilized society.” And what is his beef, exactly? Nizzini lives in a high-end neighborhood, and there are several “No Parking” signs near his home. “The signs have been up about 10 years now,” says a perplexed neighbor. “They were put there because the Lamar [High School] students come and park in the mornings. And so from 7 to 9 it prevents them from doing that.” (RC/KHOU Houston) ...Oh, the humanity.
