Astounding beliefs

How's this for an outstanding belief: Cherry Tree, PA had a radical segment that wanted all households to keep weapons and ammunition to prevent crime. The one councilmen in favor of the proposal, Henry Statkowski, acknowledged that Cherry Tree does not have a crime problem.

When asked if he felt his position was analogous to Iran's, he left in a hurry to look up "analogous."

The Detroit Free-Press gleefully reported on this story.

In other news, Senator John McCain, who with his Cole Harbour fact-finding presidential commission, coasted to an easy 8-4 victory over Milt Romney's Cape Breton Tradesmen presidential commission in Nova Scotia Major Midget Hockey League action. When Senator McCain was asked why he took time out to participate in sport where he technically did not meet the requirements (senior officials who wish to remain anonymous confirmed that the Senator is taller than 4'), angrily replied that little people have the vote too. It was not pointed out that suffrage has not been extended to Canadians.

Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wickedest of men will do the most wickedest of things for the greatest good of everyone.
John Maynard Keynes
