The Racist Who Wasn't
by L. Neil Smith
There once was a time—one of the darker moments in the history of Western Civilization—when a person caught with the wrong edition of the Book of Common Prayer, the one with a misplaced comma, or the disapproved semicolon, could be imprisoned, jailed, tortured, and executed. The thing to understand is that it didn't have anything to do with religious doctrine or anything else even remotely theological. It was simply one of many excuses that you could rely on to suppress your enemies.

A New Berry Bush for the Garden
by Paul Bonneau
Someone was pounding on the door, making a terrible racket. Old Jack made haste to open it up. "I am here to inventory and collect your guns, according to the recent National Security Order 2015-142. Apparently you failed to take them down to a collection depot." The big, overweight stooge flipped a badge out and flipped it back in a bored manner, putting it into his pocket before Jack could get a look at it. He pushed his way into the house and Jack hurriedly got out of the way, protesting feebly. He followed the man into the living room and sat down on the couch.

Dangerous Dollars—Bloomberg's $50M Surge
by C.D. Michel
What explains a billionaires' bizarre behavior? With so much money, you would think they could buy some sanity for themselves. Sadly, no. This time we are talking about billionaire Michael Bloomberg, the soda-pop-banning former mayor of New York and the self-appointed head of the new American gun control moment. This past week Bloomberg announced he is spending at least 50 million bucks to enact more useless gun control laws and elect anti-gun-owner politicians. This is oddly similar to the antics of another billionaire, George Soros, who once said he would spend all of his fortune to buy a presidential election. When you have megabucks, you can often buy whatever you want, from yachts to politicians. But can Bloomberg buy the Second Amendment?

Letter from Vin Suprynowicz
Amy and I have known the Bundys for more than a decade. Decent, kind-hearted folk. They don't even hate HARRY REID, for God's sake. I do suspect the "Bundy is a racist" campaign was a predictable ambush designed to discredit the Bundys, who'd been on major TV and radio outlets daily, drawing attention to issues Washington does NOT want discussed.

Neale's Weekly Gun Rant Volume 4-120-2014
by Neale Osborn
MAMA liberty penned this a while ago, but with Bundy being embattled, we thought you might like it now. It's kinda relevant. "The other day I went to town and saw a big, black SUV at the only signal light in town. It had quite a few stubby radio antennas and smoky glass windows (illegal for the rest of us), so I wasn't surprised to see two young men in it with hard looking faces. The thing is, gentlemen—you stood out like a sore thumb.

Publisher's Note: A Brilliant Idea

As the late, lamented Zero Mostel exclaimed in A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, "That's what we need—a brilliant idea!"

And, as it happens, our Associate Editor here at L. Neil Smith's THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE, Dangerous Pat Lawson, has provided us with one of the billiantest ideas that we've heard in a long, long time.

The best thing about Pat's brilliant idea is that you, the readers of this publication, can help apply it, and conceivably change the course of history—or at least cause the enemies of liberty considerable inconvenience.

Here's Pat's simple and fiendish idea: every time another highly photogenic and politically nutritious shooting event occurs, at a school, a mall, a church, or some other firearms-free locale where self-defense has been forbidden, you, our TLE reader, should go find the item that made that crime possible: the sticker, decal, or sign prohibiting the physical means of self defense—guns—on the premisses.

Take a picture of it, with information connecting it with the shooting. Your faithful TLE staff will pair your photo with pix related to the event, so that when some bucketheaded newsfloozie or gentleman of the evening wails, "Why? Why?", we can all say, "Because, because!"

To the extent this practice becomes universal, mass-shootings will cease to be politically advantageous, and will gradually dry up and blow away. If you think this means I think that these events have been deliberately organized to benefit politicans, their collectivist agendas and their symbiotes in the media, that's probably because I do.

Here's another idea I just thought of: we all carry cameras with us now. Any time you see one of those signs banning guns, snap a shot of it, and send it to us, along with the name and street address of the company posting it (thereby _inviting_ armed violence). We'll publish it for the world to see. My guess is that they'll scream like babies.

Address your correspondence to our editor.

Thank you, Pat!

And back to the Editor here. I've finally finished reading Don Quixote, which I've been working on for what seems like forever. The problem is I find it all kinda dull. It is supposed to be very funny, but, alas, not to me. Perhaps ya gotta read it in Spanish or something?

And, throwing caution to the winds, I've now started in on Plato. Oh, lordy that is one big thick book, about twice as thick as Quixote. And, after finishing the first dialogue, I'm dipping into George Grote's Plato and the Other Companions of Sokrates, 4 volumes, in the Project Gutenberg e-Edition. And how long is that going to take me? Ah well....
