Well, we're back. We had planned a gala to welcome ourselves "once
again into the breach", but events sort of forced our hands. This
issue, abbreviated and hurried into circulation as it is, will be
dedicated entirely to the sad and curious occurrences in Littleton,
CO on April 20.
I wish we'd been able to kick off this, the latest chapter in the
saga of the Enterprise's voyage, on a little lighter theme, but such
is the way it is. No matter how many victories we may achieve, the
Forces of Evil are always at the ready, waiting to hammer us yet
again. But we will rise and persevere from this and all our other
troubles. Why? Because ultimately, we're invariably proven right.
So in a few days, when Bilious Clinton has had a chance to bite his
lip, quote the apostle Paul, and maybe shed a crocodile tear or two,
he'll come at Lady Liberty again, with that ravager's glint in his
eye, slavering rapaciously and clutching at her robes with claw-like
And he'll bring with him his pet basset hound Carolyn McCarthy, or
his attack lounge lizard Upchuck Schemer. And they'll bleat and bray
all over again about guns, chanting the same old tired mantra that
they've been chanting since they discovered that the "gun movement",
as personified by the NRA, had no clothes, camos or otherwise.
When he rails about the "epidemic" of school shootings, remind
yourself that he told you a few weeks ago that he had singlehandedly
reduced crime through the force of his enormous ... will.
When he blames the gun instead of the person who pulled the trigger,
remind yourself that his victims are
"stalkers", that "is" doesn't mean "is", and that even one of his
hand-picked cronies in the judiciary holds him in contempt for lying.
And take heart, my friends, for we are indeed back. We will continue
to strive to provide you, our faithful readers, with a viewpoint not
found in the lapdog press, which could be distracted from Clinton's
"Butchery in the Balkans" only by his latest "Gun-Free School Zone
And if we must place the blame for Littleton anywhere other than
where it directly belongs -- on the heads of the perpetrators --
let's direct a little of it to the feral government, whose domestic
warfare policies made these murders easier to commit and more likely
to occur. -- Your Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
"But more rules is what we're likely to get, as the creepy-crawlies
push to head-off just the kinds of incidents that are
least-susceptible to control — unpredictable berserker suicide
attacks — with a new round of gun control laws, censorship, school
searches, and God only knows what other kind of intrusions in an
attempt to prevent the unpreventable. Students who, despite
Littleton-style incidents, are safer than they have been in years,
will be victimized by the latest victory of the control freaks.
And the creepy crawlies will ooze back to their holes to savor this
latest win, and eagerly anticipate the next tragedy."
