Waking from the Nightmare
by L. Neil Smith
By now it has been made abundantly clear that the American political process will never be opened to libertarians, who are, ironically, the only remaining legitimate heirs to the Founding Fathers.

A Public Service Announcement
by A.X. Perez
One of my dearest friends (and a woman I was deeply in love with at one time) believes in requiring universal community service. I understand the president elect shares this opinion. I tend to agree with Mr. Heinlein and this creates a gulf that cannot be crossed.

Number 1 of a weekly cartoon series.

Is America a Democracy?
by Russell D. Longcore
A nubile young woman entered a bar wearing very suggestive clothing, leaving little to the imagination. More than one young man offered her money for her services. She was quite offended and protested her virtue to the bartender. He explained to her that if she were wearing a policeman's uniform, it would be logical to assume that she was a cop, even though she was not. However, that night she was wearing the "uniform" of a hooker, and should not take offense when mistaken for one.

Will the BATFE be Fixed?
by A.X. Perez
Remember the late Seventies/early Eighties? Among other things this was when the ATF's behavior became so egregious that even supporters of victim disarmament wanted to break it up. Among other things the Bureau kept trying to establish a national database of gun owners in defiance of existing law. Congress finally threaten to cancel the ATF's budget to get them to settle down. At the same time the ATF engaged in "strawman stings" in which a person claiming to be ineligible to buy firearms would enter a shop and attempt to purchase a firearm. When refused they would leave the shop, described the gun in question to a confederate, then send them in to purchase the weapon, at which time the store owner would be busted on the claim that he knew the score.

A Holiday Ditty
by Don Childers
In the spirit of the holidays, I offer the following parody:
         It's beginning to look a lot like Clinton,
         Everywhere you go....
