CIS is auctioning three 3m x 1.5m promotional banners autographed by P J O’Rourke as part of his Australia and New Zealand tour earlier this year. Images of the banners and bidding instructions can be found here.
UPDATE (14 December 16:35 AEDT):
The highest bids received to date for the personally autographed PJ O’Rourke banners are as follows:
Banner 2 $300.00 “Government does not cause affluence. Citizens of totalitarian countries have plenty of government and nothing of anything else.”
Banner 3 $120.00 “The free market is a bathroom scale. You may hate what you see when you step on the scale. ‘Jeeze, 230 pounds!’ But you can’t pass a law making yourself weigh 185.”
No bids have been received for banner 1 as yet. “Bringing the government in to run Wall Street is like saying, ‘Dad burned the dinner, let’s get the dog to cook.’”
If you would like to place a bid, please visit the link below and follow the instructions. Note: If you are outbid, you will receive notification so that you have the opportunity to place a counter-bid.
