Recycled Humor

From 1963. Still good. Of course, the Soviet Union is no more (although I sometimes get the impression that the State Department and the Department of Defense are trying to put it back together). But there always has to be an Enemy. Can't have people just wandering around excercising those "freedoms" that folks talk about.

First it was Communists. Then the "Four Horsemen of the New Apocalypse" (drug dealers, child pornographers, terrorists, and Unnamed Foreign Opponents). Now it's just Terrorists. Always, our enemies are using our "freedoms" against us, so we have to eliminate those "freedoms". Of course, we're just eliminating the "abuses", like disagreeing with the President.

There's an old saying that "Inoffensive speech doesn't need protecting."
