We know it's all about the oil (or "awl about the awl" as we say in Texas). But Our Mr. Smith mentions it again just in case somebody forgot.

Enquiring Minds and the Oil War
by L. Neil Smith
Now and again, I receive e-mail asking me about libertarianism and libertarian views. Sometimes these questions seem so important that I feel a need to answer them in public, so others who wonder about the same things, but are too shy to ask, can get an answer, too. My policy has always been that the only stupid questions are the ones that go unasked. It also affords me an opportunity to think through another chapter for the book, Where We Stand, I happen to be writing on libertarian policy.

Not in My Name
by Matthew Sims
Dustin, that is exactly what you are saying. If those people over there are acting in your behalf as your proxies you are exactly saying that you want to kill innocent people to effect some kind of outcome. You won't define the outcome as anything other than "win the war and come home." I asked the question on my blog what do people mean when they say that.

The Palin Years, A History in Newsprint
by Neale Osborn
Washington DC 2008 (NBC News) Tonight, in a surprise victory, the ticket of John McCain and Sarah Palin has won a landslide victory. Garnering nearly 72% of the popular vote, and sweeping 37 states electorally. In his acceptance speech, President-elect McCain said...."I knew Obamba, Osambo, You know who I mean, that black guy ran a good campaign. But his godless atheists didn't manage to pull the wool over the eyes of the American people, who decided a pair of Mavericks were a better choice for president than Obimba, Osama, you know who I mean.... that black guy who ran against me." Meanwhile, Sarah Palin dropped to her knees and exhorted the entire convention room to join her in prayer to: Jeeesus Christ, who told me to do this!" They announced that they would both take a few days off to consider anything they wanted Mr. Bush to do to help them prepare the way for their assumption of power, and to begin the process of fixing the current recession that is rearing it's head.
