Clearly, no nation with a Bill of Rights that includes
freedom of expression has any place anywhere for
anything even remotely like the FCC.

Sorry for being late. First we had a plumbing emergency, followed by another spell of my heart flutter thing. Just one thing after another. We would have had a bigger edition this time, there are 4 or 5 more articles waiting to be used, but the old energy just up and left. Next time.

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?

The Smoking Goons
by L. Neil Smith
I haven't smoked a cigarette since 1993, when I had two mild heart attacks and had to quit. Before then, I had smoked two packs a day for thirty years, having started back when I was a freshman in college.

Nukes and the Second Amendment
by Mike Blessing
I'm sure that we've all heard it before when discussing the right to own and carry weapons (especially handguns) with hoplophobes and fence-sitters...

by L. Neil Smith
When are people going to learn that everything government touches turns to—well, not anything as valuable as organic fertilizer, certainly. I happen live in Fort Collins, a small city on I-25, about 60 miles north of Denver, Colorado and about 40 miles south of Cheyenne, Wyoming.

A Perfect Storm
by A.X. Perez
According to MSNBC Mayor Nagin of New Orleans was stuck in China under quarantine for the swine flu on the 7th of June 2009. Please keep in mind that this is the same man who screwed up preparing New Orleans for Katrina and evacuating his people to safety, has spent the last four years waiting for a federal handout to rebuild and turned the police forces under his control out to beat up and disarm little old ladies who were trying to defend their lives and property. As far as I can tell his greatest accomplishment is getting reelected instead of ridden out of the parish on a rail. Please keep this in mind.

by Mike Vanderboegh
Folks, I despise the obsession with race that is forced upon us by the nanny state. I'm always having to fill out these forms that ask my race. Liberals are so fixated on race that they would make a Nazi Gauleiter proud.

Whatever They Do Out of Fear, We Overcome with Love
by Jim Davidson
There are two things you must understand about the war on terror. First, it is very, very profitable. Second it is the last gasp of a dying culture.

Let's Be Tolerant
by Paul Bonneau
This is one of those sore points that have bugged me at times. There is a website named, run by Morris Dees, that should be definitive, don't you think? Let's look at the SPLC/Morris Dees definition of the word "tolerance":

The Illusion of Liberty
by Russell D. Longcore
The illusion of liberty is the oil that makes the gears of American politics mesh. Without this grand illusion, citizens might actually wrest government control away from the political criminal class and demand Constitutional governance.
