Government Bans Books

The government wants to ban a book because it advocates not paying your taxes. The Justice Dept. claims the first ammendment doesn’t apply to inciting others to violate the law.

However, Henry David Thoreau in his writings certainly encourages civil disobedience…and he’s not banned. (And it can be argued Thoreau encourages people to evade their taxes as well, as he did to protest a war.) Even the notorious book: “Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors” wasn’t banned. So why this one?

Moore and the Dixie Chicks more popular than ever

The media would like us to believe that the sales of Michael Moore’s books are plummeting, as are the Dixie Chick’s albums. Effectively telling people if they speak out, they will feel the consequences. Apparently, though, that isn’t the case. In fact, their sales have increased since they spoke out.

Makes one wonder what has happened to the so-called “Liberal” media.
