There once was a monster who loved to laugh and be silly. He laughed and giggled so much that his friends called him the giggle monster. Now the giggle monster didn’t just laugh at jokes, or when he thought of something funny. No, this giggle monster giggled at everything, all the time. Whether it was funny or not it didn’t matter.


His mother would send him to the store for bananas (for that is what giggle monsters eat) and if they asked him whether he wanted one bunch or two he would laugh and laugh. He would laugh at people walking by, at a scrawny tree and probably would have laughed even at you or me. Day or night, sunshine or rain, the Giggle Monster kept giggling no matter what.


Then one day it happened. The giggle monster stopped giggling.


All of a sudden nothing seemed funny any more. Oh, he tried to laugh at a little dog that crossed the street but nothing happened. He saw the mailman wave at him as he drove by in his little truck, but still no laugh, giggle or even a chuckle. The Giggle Monster had giggled so much that all of his giggles were gone.


Suddenly, the Giggle Monster began to get worried. What would it take for him to giggle again?


One of his friends was very concerned about his once giggly but now sort of sad friend. He suggested that he try something. Maybe the giggle monster could try just laughing at things that were actually funny instead of just laughing at anything and everything all the time including some things that were definitely not funny like doorknobs, socks, and when other people said “hello”.


The Giggle Monster thought about this long and hard and finally decided he would try it. No more laughing at things that weren’t funny, only at things that were actually funny. “Whew, that sure sounds hard,” said the Giggle Monster “but I’ll give it a try”.


So for a whole day the Giggle Monster tried really, really hard to only laugh and giggle at things that were really funny. The only problem was, nothing funny happened at all. The bus driver picked him up for school. That wasn’t funny. Then he went to class and even took a test that he had forgotten to study for. That definitely wasn’t funny at all. He played with the other kids at recess and had lots of fun, but nothing really funny happened. Nothing that he should have chuckled or giggled at happened at all.


As he rode the school bus back home the Giggle Monster began to get worried. “If I never laugh again then not only will I be sad, they might not even call me ‘Giggle Monster’ ever again.” Just the thought made him more depressed by the minute. His friends tried to cheer him up but nothing really funny had happened and it really needed to happen soon or the Giggle Monster might never giggle again. And that would be a very sad thing indeed.


At that very moment, one of his friends sneezed really hard and then fell out of his seat onto the floor.


“Whoa” his friend said with a smile. He then began rubbing his bottom “that kind of hurt”.


The Giggle Monster made a small little noise. Then he made a couple other small squeaks and even a guffaw. The Giggle Monster was starting to giggle! He was starting to laugh! All of a sudden he smiled at his friend and began to laugh and laugh. Watching his friend sneeze so hard that he had fallen out of his seat onto the floor HAD BEEN FUNNY. All of the Giggle Monster’s friends started laughing and then everyone else on the bus started to laugh too. It was the best laugh any of them had ever had.


The Giggle Monster laughed until his sides hurt and tears rolled down his cheeks. He had never laughed so hard in his life and he had finally found the cure for his giggle problem. His friend had been right only laughing at what was really funny was the best way to laugh at all.


"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

- President Ronald Reagan

 ”I will not cede more power to the state. I will not willingly cede more power to anyone, not to the state, not to General Motors, not to the CIO. I will hoard my power like a miser, resisting every effort to drain it away from me. I will then use my power, as I see fit. I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth. That is a program of sorts, is it not? It is certainly program enough to keep conservatives busy, and Liberals at bay. And the nation free.”

—William F. Buckley Jr.

"Liberals want to regulate just about everything: where we live, what fuels we use, what car we drive, whether we can drive or be forced to use government mass transit, where we send our kids to school, what doctor we see, and even to what extent we express our approval or disapproval of others’ lifestyles. It’s hard to find something liberals don’t want to regulate. Is that a world you want to live in?” 

"At such a time in history, we who are free must proclaim anew our faith. This faith is the abiding creed of our fathers. It is our faith in the deathless dignity of man, governed by eternal moral and natural laws. This faith defines our full view of life. It establishes, beyond debate, those gifts of the Creator that are man’s inalienable rights, and that make all men equal in His sight. "

Dwight D. Eisenhower

"And if we elect a government that subverts or weakens or ends our war against terrorism, we can count on this: We will soon face enemies that will make 9/11 look like stubbing our toe, and they will attack us with the confidence and determination that come from knowing that we don’t have the will to sustain a war all the way to the end."

- Orson Scott Card

"In response to skyrocketing gas prices, liberals say, practically in unison, 'We can’t drill our way out of this crisis.”' What does that mean? This is like telling a starving man, 'You can’t eat your way out of being hungry!'  'You can’t water your way out of drought!' 'You can’t sleep your way out of tiredness!' 'You can’t drink yourself out of dehydration!' Seriously, what does it mean? Finding more oil isn’t going to increase the supply of oil? It is the typical Democratic strategy to babble meaningless slogans, as if they have a plan. Their plan is: the permanent twilight of the human race. "

-Ann Coulter

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
-Samuel Adams
