March Madness

Editor's Notes

by John Taylor

OK, let me see if I've got this straight ...

First ... the government aided and abetted lawsuits against cigarette manufacturers ... and we did nothing.

Then ... the government aided and abetted lawsuits against gun manufacturers ... and we did nothing.

Then ... the government, partially thwarted in its coercion against the gun manufacturers, convinced one traitorous Tory company to sell out the others and agree to a compact that would serve to cripple civilian ownership of firearms, attempting to extort compliance from other manufacturers in the face of punitive measures ... and we did nothing.

Then ... when the other companies, being made of sterner stuff than the government toads could ever imagine, refused to play along like good little Quislings, the government began muttering vague threats of "anti-trust" against the manufacturers who bravely refused to knuckle under ... and we did ... what?

Hey, Claire ... what time have you got?

Freedom!
