Governments are worse than anything they pretend
to protect us from. They are worse, in fact, far
worse, than anything you can imagine.

You Knew I Was A Snake
by L. Neil Smith
For reasons far too complicated to explain, I have been without the Internet for much of the past week. And to increase my sense of isolation from my fellow goodguys, the miserable statist cowards who run a local radio station I won't name finally found an excuse to take the one guy off the air who had (and presumably still has) the oysters to stand up to the bullies and thugs of the Obama regime, Colorado Division.

Hippity-Hoplophobia
by Rex May
I never let a day go by without checking to see what Vox Day is up to. He's one of my favorite bloggers, and I seldom disagree with him about anything of substance, although he might disagree with me about what constitutes being "of substance." He's religious (Christian) and I'm not, and I'm a Darwinist, and he's a skeptic on the subject, but interestingly, we come very frequently to the same conclusions about social and political matters. Now, the female of the human species is more fearful and more risk-averse than the male, a fact that I find to be perfectly predictable for Darwinistic reasons. I'm sure Vox Day agrees about the fact, and I wonder what he thinks the cause is? But, no matter. The difference in fearfulness between the sexes isn't terribly extreme in any case. And, as you can see above, it's perfectly understandable that these girls would fear, and flee from, a giant black rabbit from the Moon. Who wouldn't? This is an example of hippity-hoplophobia rather than hoplophobia, which is what this post is actually about. Now, Vox Day is accustomed to dealing with frightened rabbits instead of frightening rabbits, and you'll just have to read his blog to see what I mean by that. But it's interesting how the whole thing relates—rabbits, Vox Day, frightened girls, frightened/frightening rabbits, hoplophobia—to a post in today's Vox Day blog, which I just can't resist reprinting in full here.

Are Technology Firms Seeking "Spoils" from the Immigration Bill?
by David M. Brown
Why is a technology company's greater ability to hire immigrants who wish to live and work in the United States—if such wider scope for mutually beneficial trade is what the immigration bill currently under consideration would enable—being r eferred to by so pejorative a term as "spoils"?

The Vancean Reach—A Look at the Works of Jack Vance
by Rex May
Obituaries of science-fiction writers are usually easy to begin. I knew just what I wanted to say about Ray Bradbury, and if I'd been called upon to write obituaries for Heinlein or Asimov, I think they would've been easy to start also. But Jack Vance is too complicated and subtle for an easy start. I can't even tell you what book of his I first encountered because I don't remember. So here's my best try....

Neale's Weekly Gun Rant Volume 15
by Neale Osborn
Barack Obama, salesman extraordinaire. Smith and Wesson (as with ALL firearms manufacturers) is currently experiencing a boom year for gun sales. As usual, MSNBC has deliberately tried to word the title in an inflammatory way. "Gun sales shoot to record high for Smith & Wesson despite violent year" The record high is ACTUALLY because people are buying to get their guns before the feared attempts to destroy the 2nd Amendment gather more steam.
