Take Your Little Black Box and Shove It
by L. Neil Smith
We all heard this week that from this moment onward, all new automobiles manufactured in or imported to the United States will be required to have "litle black boxes" like the flight recorders in aircraft.

Some Thoughts on Bunker-Busting
by Michael Bradshaw
In a recent article by Marc Slavo at Lew Rockwell's web site Mr. Slavo wrote on the subject of government and non-governmental underground bunkers and what they might be used for. His emphasis was on the "continuity of government" uses for such facilities (he approved of such uses) and what it might mean for the common American.

Heroes? Not a one
by Jim Davidson
This weekend I've been having some unpleasant discussions on the nature of the "heroism" of the troops. I've concatenated my thoughts from several of these, below. On this Memorial Day weekend, here is what I think of your "heroes" in uniform.

Again with the Dancing Mice
by Harry Felker
Well, well, well here we are again, it is May of 2011 and a whole new set of events are splattered before the populous. I think maybe it is time to look back on the weeks preceding the month of May and truly reflect on them, noting their significance and point and purpose. It is not like I am saying there cannot be a coincidence of events, but it seems to me that all of these events share some major outcome, lending to the idea that there is something more to the timing than mere coincidence.

Was Slavery The Only Cause Of The Civil War? Think Again
by Conor MacCormack
150 years ago today Confederate batteries in Charleston, South Carolina opened fire on Fort Sumter, one of three Federal garrisons positioned in the city harbor, officially commencing hostilities in the conflict that would become forever known as the Civil War (Our friends south of the Mason-Dixon line prefer the War for Southern Independence and the War of Northern Aggression among other fitting titles). To commemorate this, perhaps the most defining moment of American history, the resident statist propagandists in academia and the media, liberal and conservative alike, have gone into overdrive to further expound upon the "rightness" of the Northern cause and the seemingly Messianic qualities of its foremost champion: Abraham Lincoln.

Your Health versus that of Big Agribusiness
The Kaptain's Log

by Kaptain Kanada, aka Manuel Miles
Back about the turn of the century, I co-founded P.E.O.P.L.E. (People Extremely Opposing Plant Life Exploitation) as a "Carnan" counter to PETA and the "Vegans". We advocated the banning of the use of our floral brethren for food, clothing or decoration as such behaviour is unethical predation upon life forms which are completely unable to defend themselves. Plants, we reasoned, can not run, slither or fly away in self-defence unlike animals which have a chance to either fight or flee.
