J.A.I.L. is also busy selecting its next target. "We have an interest in taking this to Nevada, where we have no doubts a failure to hold judges accountable is crippling the legal system," a J.A.I.L. supporter recently told the Las Vegas Sun. They may find pockets of fertile ground: In 1994, a Nevada rancher broke into a national forest with a bulldozer, briefly sparking a "county supremacy" rebellion, insisting that federal ownership of land was illegal.
Indeed, JAILers are brimming with confidence that they'll win in South Dakota this fall, and around the country beyond. Writes Branson's wife, associate commander in chief of J.A.I.L: "The People are slowly waking up to realize who the Enemy is—and it isn't Bin Laden."*
Correction, April 7, 2006: This quote was mistakenly attributed to J.A.I.L. founder, Ronald Branson. In fact, it was a blog quote written by Branson's wife, Barbie, who is an authorized spokesperson for the organization.
