Reached a milestone this week. Finished up a 5-fl-oz (148-ml) bottle of Tabasco™ Pepper Sauce first opened on June 13, 2006. So I opened a fresh bottle from the pantry. This one is a 12-oz (355-ml) size, so it will probably last until 2016, maybe. We will see.

Do you suspect, however reluctantly, that at least some of the mass-shootings over the past two or three decades were deliberately engineered to achieve a political goal?

A New Freedom Manifesto, or I've Got Your Ten Planks Right Here, Buddy
by Abe Clark
Conservatives have noted with alarm that all ten planks of the Communist Manifesto have been largely implemented in the United States, despite our supposed status as a free country. When not actively contributing to this outcome through their elected representatives, they have offered little in the way of effective resistance to this slide toward totalitarianism, or toward the creation of alternate goals that might inspire such resistance. It occurs to me that the freedom movement could benefit from the creation and enumeration of its own set of planks, each clearly defined and worthy of adoption in its own right, and each contributing to the overall goal of advancing the cause of freedom.

Should Nancy Pelosi or Porter Goss be Tortured to Save the Constitution?
by Jim Duensing
The controversy this weekend over what Nancy Pelosi knew and just when she knew it is heating up. Documents from the cia indicate that as early as September 4th, 2002, both Porter Goss and Nancy Pelosi were jointly briefed by the cia about the torture techniques which had been employed during the "interrogation" of a suspected member of Al Qaeda.

by Jim Davidson
They were slaughtering civilians in the countries they occupied. Their soldiers were raping civilians and torturing prisoners to death. They were committing war crimes abroad. They were slaughtering civilians at home, too, and silencing dissent through brutal repression. Children and adults were being spirited out of their homes by gangs of thugs to be imprisoned, tortured, and abused without any legal process at all. Families lost contact with the disappeared, and there was no way to provide legal counsel or any help at all.

Troublesome Priests
by A.X. Perez
In El Paso the name Bruce Lee was used in the early '90's for men being arrested on John Doe warrants. Usualy these were homeless individuals not carrying ID or people whose privacy was being protected.

"Barack Obama Has Become George Bush"
by James Glaser
That quote above comes from one of the dyed-in-the-wool Barack Obama supporters who rent art studios near mine. I think it is so cool, because this guy, and a couple of other guys I work near, are all starting to see that Barack Obama is doing the same things George Bush did. For a couple of years I have been telling them that Democrats are not much different than Republicans, and that corporations are the ones who really call the shots in America. Their answer was always that Barack Obama would be different.

Obama Is Still a Thug
by Jim Davidson
Well, guess what? He won't release the torture photos. Obama has come up with tortured logic instead. Bush said they hate us for our freedom, and Obama says that they'll hate us for torturing their friends to death. Gee, ya think? Which is no excuse not to release the photos and try the military and CIA personnel involved for murder, violating their oath to the constitution (see the 8th Amendment for details), and treason.
