News Roundup for 10/24/11

Bomb with burning fuse

-Headline of the Day-
"Chemical bomb tossed into Occupy Maine encampment."

If there's one thing we've learned from the Bush administration it's that bombs create smoking craters of liberty. And so it was that a fine American hero threw glorious freedom into the kitchen tent of the Occupy Maine protest.

According to the report, a patriot -- believed to be driving an "older model silver four-door sedan, possibly a Toyota or Nissan" -- tossed a bomb "into the camp's kitchen, a tarped area where food is cooked and served. Protest organizers said the explosion lifted a large table about a foot off the ground." Police describe the weapon as a "homemade bomb, which consisted of chemicals poured into a plastic Gatorade container [that] could have caused serious injury." Unfortunately, none of the godless hippie communists were injured.

"We are more motivated to keep doing what we're doing," said one protester. "They have heard us and we're making a difference."

Clearly, more bursting bombs of liberty are in order, so don't be surprised when you read about them. (Portland Press Herald)
