Here We Go Again
by L. Neil Smith
The other day, Charles Schumer, Hillary Clinton, and the usual gang of idiots introduced a bill in the United States Senate to revive the ten-year Ugly Gun and Adequate Magazine ban we just got rid of. Exactly how frigging stupid do you have to be?

Cruel April—"Waco" Seeds
by Pat Hartman
Every year the weeks between February 28 and April 19 are a kind of secular Lent for me, a period of being particularly conscious of everything that's wrong with the world. This span of time corresponds to the 51-day siege imposed by federal troops on a religious community near Waco, Texas.

The Truth! (As We See It): A Special Note From The White House
by Jonathan David Morris

Everything from the heat wave in Paris to heavy snows in Buffalo has been blamed on people burning gasoline to fuel their cars, and coal and natural gas to heat, cool and electrify their homes. Yet how can a barely discernible, one-degree increase in the recorded global mean temperature since the late 19th century possibly gain public acceptance as the source of recent weather catastrophes? And how can it translate into unlikely claims about future catastrophes?

by Lady Liberty
In recent days, the issue of illegal immigration has seriously heated up both in the corridors of Washington, DC and on the streets of Los Angeles and New York. It seems that almost everybody has an agenda.

Well, well, well. There are things I know, but can't prove. I've been meaning to mention them for a while, and this seems like as good an occasion as any.
