Apparently “1984″ Begins in Rhode Island

George Orwell was right (just a couple of decades off) when he wrote, “Who controls the past’, ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.” Bristol, Rhode Island (where the nation’s oldest July 4th parade takes place) has banned the Rhode Island Tea Party group from participation in future Independence Day parades. Their crime? Passing out copies of the U.S. Constitution. Somehow I bet the irony of this is completely lost on the planning committee. Perhaps if they’d handed out ribbed condoms with the Constitution.
