    Which theory? And why?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    I didn't blame it on 9/12 specifically, that was golden dog. But it seems to me that the anti-government forces on the right have lately have increasingly resorts to intimidation and veiled threats of violence (Like signs at protests that say "we come unarmed... this time"), and increasingly there seems to be a loss of civility and this view that this administration and its supporters are not just wrong but evil.

    You are wrong..All I have done is mentioned factual things that are in the OP.
    Is it not a fact the this occured on or around 9-11 & 9/12. Why are people so defensive about me mentioning facts reguarding the OP?

    This could of course be a suicide...but really if the word FED was scrawled in his body in a majic maker or something like that then yes that could be a possiblity. But if it was carved in that puts that scenerio out IMHO.

    Druggies by nature do not draw attention to themselves in this manner. I would imagine that the people that have been feeding these fanitical loons would love to explain it away as being druggies.

    A message was being sent here.

    A Fed worker, a fact that the killer or killers obviously knew.

    done on or about 9-11.

    A lynching of all things.

    Ignore it if you must.

    Also, how many people do you think it takes till it reflects on the movement?

    There has been a legacy of illegal substance production and a corresponding loathing of fed interference in those hills that goes back a long ways.

    The original settlers were very clannish Scotsmen with an independent streak and a mistrust of government, and their descendants still are clannish, still look out for one another, and have been producing substances ranging from alcohol to pot to meth in blatant disregard to government law for a long long while.

    They don't want any government nosing around in their business up there in the hills, and anyone and everyone who works for the government who intrudes has been labeled either a revenuer or a fed for a long long time, this is nothing new.

    But couldn't this backfire very easily and lead to a full scale war, with FTA sending in tons of agents to root it out? It just doesn't seem even remotely like a sound business move. And why would a census worker find something worth killing over? His job is generally to go to your door and ask basic demographic questions.

    Wouldn't it be just as counter-productive for the right-wing zealot tea-baggers to attract the same kind of attention towards themselves?

    I think you're giving the hill-dwelling, meth-farmers a little too much credit.

    It makes sense for a right-winger to do it in the same sense it made sense to lynch freedom riders during the civil rights era.

    Who knows.. this is still just a hypothesis as to what happened, hard to tell what goes through anyone's mind, and whether or not they would have thought out any and all ramifications of their actipns or not.

    It is a more plausible hypothesis than to think that this is some right versus left partisan issue. They don't care if there is a D or an R up there, its the government, it is all evil, and all unwelcome deep in the hill country.
