During colonial times in America, if you wanted to convince or inform people about some issue that you considered important, you went to the local printer and got some pamphlets printed. You then handed them out, read them to anybody that was interested, nailed them to the town bulletin board, or the nearest tree. The first amendment was specifically written to protect this type of activity and the writers or "pamphleteers".Who Links Here

At the Pearly Gates...
(From Pamela, Marian, and many other really nice liberals.)
Albert Einstein dies and goes to Heaven. At the Pearly Gates, Saint Peter
tells him, "You look like Einstein, but you have no idea the lengths some
people will go to sneak into Heaven. Can you prove you're Albert
Einstein ponders for a few seconds and then asks, "Can I have a
blackboard and some chalk?". Saint Peter snaps his fingers and a blackboard and
chalk instantly appear. Einstein proceeds to describe, in arcane mathematics and
symbols, his theory of relativity. Saint Peter is suitably impressed.
"You really are Einstein!" he says. "Welcome to heaven!"
The next to arrive is Picasso. Once again, Saint Peter asks for
credentials. Picasso asks, "Mind if I use that blackboard and chalk?"
Saint Peter says, "Go ahead." Picasso erases Einstein's equations and
sketches a truly stunning mural with just a few strokes of chalk. Saint Peter claps.
"You are definitely the great artist you claim to be!" he says. "Come on in!"
Then Saint Peter looks up and sees George W. Bush. Saint Peter scratches
his head and says, "Einstein and Picasso both managed to prove their identity. How can you prove yours?"
George Bush looks bewildered and says, "Who are Einstein and Picasso?"
Saint Peter sighs and says, "Come on in, George."
(Editor's note: What the liberals missed, is that George W. Bush is going to heaven.)
