Real ID: A License to Kill
by Jonathan David Morris
Well, congratulations, America, you finally did it. You finally collapsed into absolute tyranny.

Revenge Of the Sith:
A Parent's Review

by William Stone, III
As anyone who knows me is aware, I've been concerned about George Lucas' final entry in the Star Wars film saga, Episode III: Revenge Of the Sith. This concern had nothing to do with the fact that the two preceding movies in what's called the "Prequel Trilogy" have been dramatically and directorially flawed. My concern with this outing has been the fact that all the information leaked to date indicated that this was most assuredly not a movie for children.

"All the noose that fits the neck"

by Taillear dubh na Tuaighe
In a move that caught the liberty industry by surprise, Lazy Fair Books today filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, citing a complete collapse in sales as a direct result of a purge of their entire inventory. Spokesperson Colleen Atzerodt announced the surprise filing through an anonymous e-mail service, stating that she had to preserve anonymity due to "fear of being penetrated by a turgid, throbbing wet black shaft, thrust upon me by an unknown and masked assailant".

When it is Time to Hang the Christians...
by Doug Newman
Lenin once remarked that, "When it is time to hang the capitalists, they will sell us the rope." Westerners, he maintained, were so naïve about his intentions that they would provide him the means to destroy them.

Taking it on Faith
by Lady Liberty
I read a lot, and much of what I read is science fiction. I'm capable of suspending all disbelief for hours at a time while I live in the world of the book I'm enjoying, at least until it's over. But seeing something on the printed page, no matter how immersed in imagination I might become, is no comparison to actually experiencing something the real world.

The Freedom Pledge
by Ron Beatty
Ladies and gentlemen, I think it is time, and far past time, for all of us, as Americans, as free men and women, to stand up for freedom, with all that that entails. Many of us, if not most, have kind of coasted along, saying "Well, what can I do, I'm only one person?"

Father's Rights Movement to Get English Invasion
by Wendy McElroy
Fathers 4 Justice (F4J)—a pressure group that originated in Britain to crusade for father's rights, especially child custody and access rights in divorce—has just landed on American shores with the creation of F4J-US. What happens next may tell us as much about society's post-9/11 attitude toward social reform as it does about father's rights.
