Re: "Who Needs City Government?", by L. Neil Smith

Be a sport. Some of the dancing and singing is purty.

But it should be paid for by private subscription.

Sounds like you need to move to some place in Texas where "no one is really sure what the law is and don't give a damn anyhow."

I recently had an essay published in TLE. I said that most property was originally stolen and hence none of us really had a moral right to what we believed we owned. I was wrong. One of your readers, in a personal note, introduced me to the works of George Reisman.

He explains it far better than I could and as much as I hate it, I must admit that I was wrong. Thank you DLW and some day I'll get you back for this.

JPFO ALERT: Are Things Different Than They Appear?

JPFO's most recent author, L. Neil Smith, has prepared another thought-provoking article for your weekend reading pleasure. In "Bringing the 'Boys' Back Home", Smith ruminates on the possible ramifications of returning 150,000 soldiers from the Middle East. You can read the article here at Feedback is always welcome, whether you agree with Smith or not.

Don't forget to show The Gang ( this week, and alert gunowners in your community about the treachery our "friends" in Congress are supporting with OUR money.
