Letters to the Editor
from Rex "Baloo" May, A.X. Perez, and L. Neil Smith

The Cougar and The Elephants
by L. Neil Smith
I woke up this morning intending to write my weekly harangue for The Libertarian Enterprise about Ann Coulter's distaste for Dr. Ron Paul. Just about the first thing Google turned up was a column on Lew Rockwell's website, by Ryan McMaken, and titled "Privatize Marriage Now".

Line in the Sand
by A.X. Perez
Sooner or later "the line" gets crossed. The line between using a little extra force to deal with a hard case suspect and brutalizing a suspect. The line between putting a spin on the facts and telling a flat out lie. Eventually you reach the point of no return and the only way you are going on the slippery slope is down.

Where's the Outrage?
by Sean Gangol
Many years ago, the late great George Carlin had this to say about airport security "Airport security. There's too much of it. I'm sick of having some guy with a triple digit income and a double digit IQ going through my bags and never finding anything. The whole thing is fucking pointless." (This is actually more of a paraphrase).

Endgame Of The Resistance
by Lucifer Geraldo
I've previously mentioned and want to reemphasize now the relationship between resistance potential inside any given population and the escalation of restriction practiced by a State in transition to hardcore tyranny. When one side of the scale moves upward, the other side moves a proportional increase in the same direction as well. If it were a stock chart it would be two moving average lines mirroring each other between two rising price levels.

Hang 'Em High
by L. Neil Smith
The headline at zerohedge.com reads, "Trading Of Over The Counter Gold And Silver To Be Illegal Beginning July 15". The story, by a Tyler Durden, goes into details of legislation I was unaware of until now, legislation that's about as evil as any legislation can possibly get.

by Jim Davidson
There is an old story that there were many statues to the gods in Rome, including the many Roman emperors who were deified by the senate, including especially Augustus. However, a visitor to Rome in ancient times was hard pressed to find a statue of Julius Caesar. Remarking upon this issue, according to lore, the traveller would be told, "si monumentum requires, circumspice." If you seek his monument, look around you. Or, in less poetic phrasing, if you are looking for the great edifice erected to the memory of Julius Caesar, it is Rome itself.
