Our Publisher, Mr. Smith says:

This [noose picture] is in response to the many letters I've gotten (and will get) urging me to reconsider the death penalty for crimes against the Constitution. [In "Hang 'Em High", last issue]

And it's also funny.

Funny is always good.

A Few Books for Bright Kids
by L. Neil Smith
A Friend of mine on FaceBook asked a number of individuals about books that might be suitable for his daughter who he says is 11, but reading at a 14-year-old level. It's hard for me to judge these things. My daughter, when she was 11, was reading Oscar Wilde. But here, with a little embellishment, is what I told my fellow father-of-a-daughter....

How to Deal with All Politicians
by Bob Wallace
Once upon a time, not so long ago, there was a large, peaceful, free, very prosperous village. One day, a horde of quite brutal and even smellier barbarians rode into the village, stole some of the girls and gold, and otherwise made merry by killing and destroying, then rode away.

Taking Aim At The Revisionist Definition Of The Militia, Part I
by Conor MacCormack
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." With the possible exception of the religious clauses found in the 1st Amendment, the above words quoted from the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution have been the most horribly manipulated by collectivists of all stripes: nanny state Democrats who believe that all EVIL FIREARMS keep us overgrown children from playing nice and loving one another, fascistic Republicans who in their quest to expand the police state only want guns in the hands of the "right" people, and idealistic peaceniks or pacifists that find people who execute their God-given, natural right to self-defense "offensive" to their tender little sensibilities. It is more often than not these same folks who wail about their individual rights being trampled upon but under the mantra of the "greater good" are quick to rob others of theirs.

The New Barbarians of Secession
by Russell D. Longcore
When secession finally occurs in the first American state, it will come first from the New Barbarians, not from the state house. This article explores the definition of the word "Barbarian," and how I perceive that secession will be moved forward into reality by the New Barbarians. I am one of the New Barbarians.

They Must Go
by A.X. Perez
According to Wikipedia the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (now the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives) was created in 1972 from the ATF division of The IRS. Also according to Wikipedia the first example of ATF abuse was in 1971 (the ATF agents involved were convicted in 1973). ATF was crooked before it even existed. This was followed by a history of persecuting collectors, swallowing camels and straining at gnats in going after convictions on technicalities, entrapment, falsification of evidence, intimidation, mass murder and starting a private war with Mexico with the intent of trashing the Second amendment.

The Phases of Resistance
by Lucifer Geraldo
The resistance movement evolves along a three-phase continuum known, well, as the phases of resistance. Current SF field manuals still define the resistance in terms of three phases as does Mao's classic discussion of guerrilla warfare. Mao would consider the resistance as a sub-category of guerrilla warfare and Army Special Forces considers guerrilla warfare a phase that a resistance usually goes through. But not always.

The U.S. Monetary System and Descent into Fascism
An Interview with Dr. Edwin Vieira

by David Galland
The following interview with Dr. Vieira was conducted in early June of 2011 for the subscribers of The Casey Report but after careful consideration, we decided that the content is so important; it needs to be shared with a wider audience. Feel free to pass it along. -- David Galland, Managing Editor, The Casey Report
