  1. And now, out of the perfidious, purple fumes of Canada’s Hate ‘n Rage mongers we’ve got to concentrate our forces for Ezra, Savant, and the Bloggers.

    No doubt exclamation Mark will be manning the word-guns, blazing…

    America Alone, alive and ticking.

    ad nausilam sine jure

  2. I think it was Kathy Shaidle who suggested we at Covenant Zone use blank signs at our demonstration in support of free speech. I call it our “Steyn Demo Graphic.”

    Thank you, Kathy.
