isn't so much another point of view as
it is a form of mental illness"

Exposing War Crimes is NOT a crime!
Free Bradley Manning

L. Neil Smith personally recommends Climate Depot
as the best general source of infomation on the subject.



Be sure and circulate "The Plan".



For the Record: heartlessly exploiting the Tucson shootings, Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy, plans more victim disarmament legislation. She is the repulsive scavenger who gained political power stomping through the blood of an ex-husband murdered by a black racist on the Long Island Railway.

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, blaming the shootings on the Tea Parties and others who resist tyranny, is simply the mirror image of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Just as there are left wing socialists and right wing socialists, there are right wing fascists and left wing fascists. We must defeat both to be truly free.

Spread the word.

I was afraid this issue might not make it out, due to me reading a book I could hardly put down, viz, to wit: Robert A. Heinlein: In Dialogue with His Century: Volume 1 (1907-1948) by William H. Patterson. I recommend it!

Question to SF Gate about their Glock Column
by David Larsen
Marshall, I need you to help me out here because I have to admit that you confused me in this mornings column regarding Glock pistols.

Michael Bloomberg, Serial Killer
by L. Neil Smith
Suppose I worked for you. Suppose, when you hired me, I had sworn by everything I believed in to labor faithfully in your interests, to the very best of my ability. Now suppose that we were walking down an alley when a figure with a nine-inch butcher knife sprang out from behind a dumpster and confronted you, demanding that you choose between your money and your life.

Good Violence
by Paul Bonneau
Stefan Molyneux has cranked out a large number of podcasts. If you dig through them or look at some of his written material, you will find he abhors violence. His personal measure for goodness, "Universally Preferable Behavior", says violence is bad. He makes an exception for defensive violence, but he's obviously uncomfortable with that just because it is an exception (basic rules of behavior shouldn't have exceptions) and, I believe, because he is a closet pacifist. In one podcast his discomfort, his distaste for admitting the goodness of some violence was so prominent, that he declared (preposterously) that defense almost never works! I suppose he has not seen criminologist Gary Kleck's research that showed Americans defend themselves with firearms (mostly unreported to the police) over 2 million times a year.

The Manchurian Lobbyist
by L. Neil Smith
After writing 18 SF novels in 15 years, it's time for a change. How about a thriller that'll keep you up and turning pages all night?

A Letter to Australia
by L. Neil Smith
This weekend, the "humanitarians" who wish to suppress the right of self-defense were out in force in the wake of the shootings in Tucson. Like the so-called mainstream media, who are striving to twist the event into an excuse to suppress free speech and force individuals who are critical of runaway government to shut up, members of advocates of "gun control" -- more accurately known as victim disarmament -- have been sitting impatiently like vultures on a saguaro cactus, awaiting their next bloodsoaked opportunity. In both instances, the "solution" is -- as it has always been -- to trash the Bill of Rights, because the "problem" is invariably defined by these creatures as too much freedom.

A Penalty Clause for the Bill of Rights
by L. Neil Smith
Sometimes it feels as if we've been fighting for our freedom all our lives, although I'm fairly certain that it wasn't supposed to be this way. I've often wondered how it was that the Founding Fathers managed to omit the single most important element that the Constitution could have had, namely, a stringent penalty clause, attached to the Bill of Rights.

Why We Shouldn't Disarm Crazy People
from Doug Newman
This is a rehash of a piece I wrote in 2004. I am reworking it because of the calls for additional gun control after the tragic shootings in Tucson on Saturday. I have heard a lot of people say something along these lines: "I believe people should be allowed to own guns. But there HAS to be SOME control. I mean, there are so many crazy people out there. You can't let just ANYONE have a gun."

Getting Everything You Can Out Of All You've Got
by Russell D. Longcore
If you have been reading the articles posted here at DumpDC, you have read about the impending economic collapse. But sometimes all this gloom and doom, although accurately predicted, can be overwhelming. And when you feel overwhelmed you may just give up, thinking all is hopeless. So today, I'm offering some common sense steps you can take to become as prepared as you possibly can become.

A History of Freedom of Thought
Chapter III
Reason in Prison (The Middle Ages)

by John Bagnell Bury
About ten years after the Edict of Toleration, Constantine the Great adopted Christianity. This momentous decision inaugurated a millennium in which reason was enchained, thought was enslaved, and knowledge made no progress.

Somali ad hoc Traditions and Spontaneous Defence Production
by Jim Davidson
The recent situations with Shaun Lee in Cole County (Jefferson City) Missouri and (some time back) Pete Eyre, Adam Mueller and some homophobic twat named Jason in Jones County, Mississippi have inspired a number of useful threads about mutual defence networks, the spontaneous production of defence services, and an agorist rapid response team that ought to make J. Neil Schulman proud of having most thoroughly developed the idea 32 years ago in his novel Alongside Night.
