Government evils — but I repeat myself

Astroturf: now sponsored by government

Lessee … First you give the kids a day off from school … then you provide transportation to an anti-gun rally at $100,000 worth of city taxpayer expense … and you have a “grassroots” movement. Such a deal! I hope the suckers who fund the schools in Baltimore sue over this. All around the country Bloombergians, Hollywood stars, and hoplophobic, rights-hating others are laboring away to manufacture a dramatic children’s crusade against freedom.

    Memory Lane: “A Cut of Catastrophe”

    So yesterday I found that 2003 CD compilation of my articles. That was fun. The idea Mac proposed and Comrade X seconded about making copies and selling them is interesting. I’ll think about that as I read through the disc’s contents. Some of the pieces are definitely outdated, though even those might have nostalgia value. There’s “Land Mine Legislation,” for instance (aka “Pearl Harbor Legislation” and a gazillion other titles). It came out in 1996/7 right after 101 Things to Do ‘Til the Revolution.
