Post-Traumatic School Disorder
by Bob Wallace
I have only one recurring nightmare, which I have about once a year,
and have had since I graduated high school. It is the last day of my senior year, and I
suddenly realize there is a required class that I have not been to all year. Unless I
take the final and pass it, I will have to go another year, while all my friends are
away at college. I will be 18 years old, stuck for another year with a class of 17-year-olds.
It gives me the exact same feeling as being a high school senior and being returned to
first grade. "You have to repeat everything from first grade to high school...you'll be
30 when you finally graduate high school." It's like being an adult and forced to sit
at the kiddie table all your life during Christmas.

The "news," blogosphere, and almost every forum on the internet is
ablaze with speculations and pontifications regarding the latest mass murder in Aurora,
Colorado. The sheer volume of statist and self serving posturing, jumps to conclusions
absent facts, and plain old stupidity are almost as staggering as the actual death toll.
Choose the Counter-Establishment Economy
by Jim Davidson
We aren't well served by pretending that a constitutionally limited
government worked out. Yet we see the pretence every election year, as millions of
Americans go to the polls and cast votes, some of which are counted. Some portion of the
counted votes are reported; many who have cast write-in votes and third-party-candidate
votes have noticed their votes are not reported by election officials. Tens of millions
of dollars were spent, again, this year, by liberty-oriented Americans supporting Ron Paul.
At least millions of dollars are likely to be spent by libertarians supporting Gary Johnson.
