Getting fleeced is only the start.
The current conspiracy theory overheard on overnight talk radio, perhaps on Coast to Coast AM, or possibly, Midnight in the Desert, is that George Orwell was a time traveler from the future, who was stranded here, and then wrote 1984 as a desperate attempt to save us from our selves and consequently save his ‘future’ self from having to make this trip in the first place and, thus, getting marooned here in this seedy version of “tempus contemporary” . Complicated? Maybe. But there are no paradoxes on overnight talk radio.
The Senator would be well served by reading “Fahrenheit 451 [which] is a dystopian novel by American writer Ray Bradbury, published in 1953. It is regarded as one of his best works. The novel presents a future American society where books are outlawed and “firemen” burn any that are found.”
Who's next, Senator? And who's to say your list is the only list of who should be included in that hateful iceberg that need to be "taken down". You might try reading "First they came" by Martin Niemöller before you answer. Cowardly intellectuals and purges are the theme.

It’s called the CCSC License (California Concealed Straw Carry), and you can bet your sippy-cup it will be tough bitch to get.
Normally it’s a crime to carry either a ‘full or an empty’ straw in public in California. It doesn’t matter whether you are carrying a concealed straw or one that is openly carried or displayed in a beverage.
Unless you have a CCSC (California Concealed Straw Carry) license, publicly carrying a straw in California is against the law… period.
But you may be issued a permit to carry “a straw, flexible or fixed, or other flexible sipping impliment capable of being concealed upon the person” if:
- You are of good moral character;
- Good cause exists for issuance of the license because you or a member of your family has an unquenchable thirst;
- You meet certain residency requirements; and
- You have completed an acceptable course of straw, and straw sipping techniques training.
And don’t forget your $Million $Dollar Humane Safe Straw Storage and Disposal Guarantee Bond. Don’t leave home without it.
