You Can't Fight a Culture War
If You Ain't Got Any Culture

by L. Neil Smith
The news was very bad the day I started writing this speech. Not in the traditional "Old Media"—where there's never anything but bad news (mostly government threats and lies which it's their principal function to convey to the populace)—but in the only source of good news in the Known Galaxy, the internet.

"A Dog Named Liberty"
Commentary by Ron Beatty
A few days ago I ran across this short essay in a Harry Potter fanfic.It immediately struck a chord in me, and I e-mailed the author of this short piece to ask permission to use it in an article.The author, Jack Nalett II, who writes under the pen name of Hamilton Wrye or Hamm on Wry, very graciously granted me permission to use it, in whole or in part.I hope you will read it, and my comments afterword.

Coming to Aid an Old Ally
by Don Meinshausen—your Borg warner
As liberals in power in Washington DC and many others have correctly observed fascism is bankrupt, at least morally. Liberals are also big into historical preservation. They are also very much into recycling. They also believe that the state should help corporations and vice versa with the emphasis on vice. So in the current trend of rescuing bankrupt organizations and historical preservation and recycling discarded ideas liberalism has come to the rescue of fascism by nationalizing this noted historic relic.

Global Warming Hysteria—The Road to One World Socialism
by Lion F Batoosta
It should not be news to libertarians that the collapse of the Soviet Union—the fountainhead of world socialism—in December of 1991 set off a crises amongst all the leftist, socialist and communist organizations around the world. Suddenly their arguments of equality and state planning had the ground swept under them. Not ready to concede defeat, they needed another argument, another rationalization which they could use to browbeat the public into accepting state controls and regulations over the private industry.

Robert McNamara, Roast in Purgatory
by John Amendall
The architect of the Vietnam war is dead. He was a loathsome and despicable creature, and it is good that he is dead. He was one of the worst Americans ever.

Honduras Coup d'etat: Was It Right Or Wrong?
by Russell D. Longcore
On Sunday, June 28, 2009, Honduran President Manual Zelaya was awakened from his bed by the sound of gunshots and the yelling of his guards. About 20 minutes later, Army soldiers took Zelaya from the palace to a waiting plane. He was flown against his will to San Jose, Costa Rica, where he now lives in exile.

Real Inflation
by A.X. Perez
Mr. Jim Davidson lately stated that we paid for the Vietnam war with inflation. While there were other issues that contributed to the 1970's inflationary cycle the fact is we are relatively poorer now than then.
