Letter from The Editor to the Readers

Letter from Jim Davidson

Letter from Scott Campanaro

Letter from Marc V. Ridenour

I am listing here some interesting reads:

1) Wall Street Journal—"Gun Owners Are Happy Folks".

2) "The Future of American Power", by Fareed Zakaria.

This is a sort-of "The Good News About the Bad News" thing. Food for thought anyway, even if it's not all correct.

3) "The View From Gate 14" by Peggy Noonan

Even the "mainstream" media people are getting pissed about TSA. About time.

Ye Olde Editor

Dear Editor:

I wanted to invite you and your readers to a festival for individual liberty, private property, free markets, big guns, lots of fireworks, star parties, model rocketry, and camping. I've been calling the event the Freedom Summer in Wyoming. You can visit the site John Wiltbank built for it at

John thinks "This Ain't the Summer of Love." And how can a Blue Oyster Cult fan object?

We are soliciting presentations by people who want to make them, classes and demonstrations by those who like to teach, and enthusiastic participation by anyone who likes to shoot. We even have some money for a few expenses.

The cost is a very reasonable $25 payable to a Wyoming non-profit group. You can find more about it at the above URL.

Yours in Freedom

Hey people, this could be really scary!:

The FBI Deputizes Business
by Matthew Rothschild, March 2008 Issue:

Today, more than 23,000 representatives of private industry are working quietly with the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. The members of this rapidly growing group, called InfraGard, receive secret warnings of terrorist threats before the public does—and, at least on one occasion, before elected officials. In return, they provide information to the government, which alarms the ACLU. But there may be more to it than that. One business executive, who showed me his InfraGard card, told me they have permission to "shoot to kill" in the event of martial law.
