ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Ahhh, the Foolishness of the Left

Look for these immature antics at your local bookstore.

  1. Select a local bookstore to carry out your reshelving activities.

  2. Download and print "This book has been relocated by the Ministry of Reshelving" bookmarks and "All copies of 1984 have been relocated" notecards to take with you to the bookstore. Or make your own. We recommend bringing a notecard and 5-10 bookmarks to each store.

  3. Go to the bookstore and locate its copies of George Orwell's 1984. Unless the Ministry of Reshelving has already visited this bookstore, it is probably currently incorrectly classified as "Fiction" or "Literature."

  4. Discreetly move all copies of 1984 to a more suitable section, such as "Current Events", "Politics", "History", "True Crime", or "New Non-Fiction."

  5. Insert a Ministry of Reshelving bookmark into each copy of any book you have moved. Leave a notecard in the empty space the books once occupied.

  6. If you spot other incorrectly classified books, feel free to relocate them.

Well, while they're off taking these idiotic actions, we'll continue to press forward in this War On Terror. We'll sort out the bookshelves after we've won the war, mmmmkay???

(How's that for patronizing????)

By the way, I was at Borders over the weekend and was perusing the Politics & Government shelves. I was amazed at the number of anti-Bush books... And it seemed like most of them were written by C-list authors or obscure "journalists" with recommendations on the back cover from similarly obscure websites.

I think I may just ditch this whole conservative/libertarian line of logic and head over to the deranged, Bush-obsessed Left for the next 3 years. There's a ton of money that can be made by just making stuff up...
