Enjoy this Classic Tom the Dancing Bug Vintage 2013 Every Thursday Panels from the annals of the Tom the Dancing Bug archive Check back every Friday for a fresh, brand new Tom the Dancing Bug! the Tom the Dancing Bug Comic Strip by Ruben Bolling There circles the sun another Earth, a Counter-Earth, whose diametrically opposed orbit keeps it forever beyond our detection. COUNTER-EARTH SUN EARTH Let us explore this strange world that is not quite the opposite of our own...BUT SOMEWHAT DISSIMILAR IN CERTAIN WAYS! On Counter-Earth, the National Rhetoric Association (NRA) pushes an extreme interpretation of the first amendment. Verne Peters: Our founding fathers gave us "freedom of speech," and any limitation is an affront to America's values. And by the way... FIRE! Yet the pro-gun lobby is utterly powerless. Man #1: But we have the "right to bear arms"! Man #2: What part of "well regulated militia" don't you understand, you bed-wetter? Man #3: HA!! Man #1: Hey, that's slanderous! THIS WEEK Verne Peters: Free speech means FREE, no matter what harm could result. You can't stop me from saying that the launch codes for a US nuclear attack are B39TJD882X... VERNE PETERS NRA SPOKESMAN Reporter #1: GASP! Reporter #2: STOP!! Reporter: If there are NO limits on speech, people will be killed! Verne Peters: Words don't kill people! Various traumas to the body kill people! Verne Peters: The solution to someone yelling "fire" in a crowded theater is not prohibiting that speech. It's hiring fact-checkers in every theater. FIRE! Fact-Checker: Hmm...I'm giving that outburst three and a half "Pinocchios"!
