Four pots of coffee, four contributors, four computer crashes, 24 hours of toil, and voilà – more news than you can shake a stick at! Whew!

And, since attending a huge political bonfire and shooting off fireworks with like-minded friends – not to mention a tasty meal of bangers and mash – sounds like a lot more fun than answering the doorbell every 30 seconds, for hours on end, to dole out free candies to hundreds of astonishingly surly costumed children, let’s all make a few effigies of our least-favorite politicians, and toss them on a roaring fire this coming Thursday. Remember, remember the 5th of November!

A big thanks to Red Pill Junkie, Randall, and Greg for loads of news. (Yo Randall, email me again – your first mysteriously disappeared.) And a big thanks to all the other TDG admins — for not contributing any news! 😉

Quote of the Day:

I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of the everyday routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration – whereby those important events of the past, usually associated with someone’s death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, are celebrated with a nice holiday – I thought we could mark this November the fifth, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat.

There are, of course, those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now orders are being shouted into telephones and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there?

Cruelty and injustice…intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance, coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who’s to blame? Well certainly there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told…if you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.
