"I'm Gonna Git You Sucka"
by L. Neil Smith
Of all the con-games that human beings play on one another, perhaps the most effective—and evil—is the con-game called "terrorism". Terrorism is a game in which every player wins—everybody, that is, except for the ordinary people who do the bleeding and dying—and it's a bastard child of democracy, as surely as Tammany Hall and total war, predicated on the cruelly false notion that everybody in a democratic country, even little babies in their cradles, has a part in running it, and therefore deserves equal punishment for whatever it does.

Gold: Business as Usual?
by L. Reichard White
On Friday April 12 and Monday April 15, 2013, the titular price of gold dropped a total of over $200, a performance not seen in over 30 years. That Monday saw the biggest one day dollar drop in gold ever. The Friday move was about 4.88 standard deviations meaning it should only happen about once every 4,700 years, and the two day price movement in the GLD ETF was in the eight standard deviation range—meaning the sun should burn out before it happens. Everyone's looking for explanations.

Thoughts on Earth Day
by Jeff Fullerton
Heads they win. Tails we loose. Now the climate scientists at NASA have discovered that CO2 may cool the atmosphere by blocking a portion of the sun's spectrum that warms the surface of the Earth. On one hand it sounds like a good thing since it implies that global warming from human CO2 emissions was just another red herring.

Whose Life Is It Anyway?
by C. Jeffery Small
The provocative movie, Whose Life I It Anyway?, was released in 1981. It stars Richard Dreyfuss as Ken Harrison, a sculptor who is paralyzed from the neck down after a horrible automobile accident. When it becomes clear that he will never recover any additional use of his body and that his life is reduced to nothing more than the care that is offered by others, Harrison decides to end his life. However his wishes are blocked by those opposed to euthanasia and suicide. The story depicts the struggle between two views of life and confronts the question of whether Harrison—or any of us—are truly the ultimate masters of our fate, holding an absolute right to direct and dispose of our own life as we see fit?

Neale's Weekly Gun Rant, Volume 6
by Neale Osborn
Go ye forth and read this, all ye gun-rights opposing so-called liberals, and see what you are REALLY advocating. Philthydelphia PD has "lost" an M16 (falsely referred to as a machine gun in the linked story—it is actually a REAL "assault rifle") due to ????? Most likely a Philly cop now "owns" a Viet Nam era M16. I wonder what will happen to the cop who took it IF they find him?

Congress Quickly And Quietly Rolls Back Insider Trading Rules For Itself
In November of 2011, the TV show 60 Minutes did a big expose on insider trading within Congress. While everyone else is subject to basic insider trading rules, it turned out that members of Congress were exempt from the rules. And, as you would imagine, many in Congress have access to market-moving, non-public information. And they made use of it. To make lots and lots of money. Of course, after that report came out and got lots of attention, Congress had to act, and within months they had passed the STOCK Act with overwhelming support in Congress to make insider trading laws that apply to everyone else finally apply to Congress and Congressional staffers as well. As that link notes:

The lopsided votes showed lawmakers desperate to regain public trust in an election year, when the public approval rating of Congress has sunk below 15 percent.

Of course, here we are in 2013 and, lo and behold, it is no longer an election year. And apparently some of the details of the ban on insider trading were beginning to chafe Congressional staffers, who found it hard to pad their income with some friendly trades on insider knowledge.
