The Problem With the Police
by L. Neil Smith
It will come as a surprise to absolutely no one when I say that I have no sympathy for the crypiggies who've begun blubbering, since the mess at Ferguson, about how dangerous their "profession" is and how some kind of special steps have to be taken now to protect them. I haven't actually heard any demands for more victim disarmament (gun control) but they do want sales of body armor to civilians to be banned.

PBS—Propaganda B*S*
by J. Neil Schulman
I'm neither a conservative nor a supporter of the Republican Party. I'm a non-party libertarian—and I expect to be a principled non-voter in the 2016 presidential election—either that or vote for any minor-party candidate as a protest vote against the two major parties.

Open Letter To Muslim World
by Abdennour Bidar
"Dear Muslim world: I am one of your estranged sons, who views you from without and from afar—from France, where so many of your children live today. I look at you with the harsh eyes of a philosopher, nourished from infancy on tasawwuf (Sufism) and Western thought.

This being said, the smug chanting of the politicians and media people is getting on my nerves. Here, without further introduction, are the more objectionable mantras: Je suis Charlie

The Norseman's Diaries: Hell Returns—Nuke The Polar Bears!
by Jeff Fullerton
It started off with a conversation with Ray last Sunday about the frigid weather that was descending upon Wisconsin and soon to be upon Greater Appalachia. Yes—it was coming back. That evil force of Nature I have endured and written about time and time before.

Neale's Weekly Gun Rant 1-11-2015
by Neale Osborn
(Note to self—figger out a different way to introduce her!) It's time to open this ball, and I like to do it with a classy lady, the Queen of self defense, Mama Liberty!!!! (Loud cheers resound) ((She's gonna yell at me for going over the top again)) A little note—no matter when she sends me her tidbits, I always read them just before I type the rant—which explains why I wrote about he same topic this morning, and now I'm adding Mama Liberty's thoughts on it. She called this one "The Unmentioned"
