Let me preface this quote by stating for the record that I (unlike Saddam Hussein) respect the right of people to protest the plans of their governments. Hell, I attended more than one rally protesting the Viet Nam war, got roughed up by the police, and spent the night in jail -- and that was in Canada, for cryin' out loud! In my opinion, attending a demonstration to show your support for something you believe in is a good thing.

Having said that, after reading this thread I just have to throw in some commentary from that famous ex-National Lampoon writer, P.J. O'Rourke. As O'Rourke has said on numerous occasions, Liberals have no sense of humor, so I am fully prepared for the indignant response his words will trigger, but as they say in the funny papers, "Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke."

And now ... Heeeeeeere's P.J. --

Not long after Andy and I met, we were driving down Pennsylvania Avenue and encountered some or another noisy pinko demonstration. "How come," I asked Andy, "whenever something upsets the Left, you see immediate marches and parades and rallies with signs already printed and rhyming slogans already composed, whereas whenever something upsets the Right, you see two members of the Young Americans for Freedom waving a six-inch American flag?"

"We have jobs," said Andy.

Gotta love P.J.

I never thought I'd be interested in reading about economics until I was given a copy of Eat the Rich. While we're at it here's another quote that D.U.I. Dubya can probably relate to:

"Giving government money and power is like giving car keys and whiskey to a teenage boy"

"Giving government money and power is like giving car keys and whiskey to a teenage boy"

Yup. An all-time classic quotable quote, for sure.

I haven't been able to get my hands on many of his books yet, just "Parliament of Whores", "All the Trouble in the World", "Give War a Chance", and maybe one other whose name escapes me -- "Holidays in Hell"? Can't remember.

I want to read "Eat the Rich" and "Republican Party Reptile" -- I hear those are both pretty good. Hell, I want to read all of them.
