My 2016 Endorsement by L. Neil Smith
Perhaps I should begin this by explaining that I first became a
member of the Libertarian Party in 1972, the first full year that it existed.
Because They Made It About Guns by A.X. Perez
A while back our publisher wrote an article entitled "Why Did It Have to
Be Guns?" The article explained why he was a single issue voter; if a candidate was pro-gun
He enjoyed L. Neil Smith's support, if he was anti-gun our publisher opposed him. Last December
Barrack Obama announced that he would not support any candidate for office unless they support
what he considers to be "common sense gun control." If I remember correctly, as a sitting
President who is a member of the Democratic Party, Mr. Obama is the leader of the Democratic
Party. Therefor if you are running for office as a Democrat you are bound by Party loyalty to support:
A Hard Rain: Book Review of Neal Stephenson's seveneves by Jim Davidson
Editorial comment from the author: You are reading a book review.
I'm going to discuss aspects of a book you may wish to read. Reading this book review
may cause you to know things about what happens in the book before you read it. If you
don't want to be contaminated with such knowledge, stop reading here. The title is clear
that this document is a book review. It is now your responsibility to choose whether or
not to read it. Sending me more death threats because I've written a book review isn't
going to deter me from writing more book reviews nor does it absolve you of the
responsibility to choose whether to read this essay. kthx

Thoughts on the European Referendum: A Personal Attempt at Clarity by Sean Gabb
Because of its charitable status, the Libertarian Alliance takes no
view of the European Referendum set for the June of 2016. This is, then, more than usually
not an ex cathedra statement. It is purely an expression of what I think. For anyone who
is interested, and has no inclination to read my justifications, I will say now that I will
vote to leave the European Union. This is notwithstanding the views that I have lately
expressed regarding the nature and benefits of our actual membership. I now proceed to my justifications.
The Wrong Donald Trump by J. Neil Schulman
As I write this Monday February 22, 2016, tomorrow evening is the
Nevada caucus. As a Nye County voter still registered as a Republican from the last
presidential election when I was a delegate for Ron Paul, I could caucus if I wished
to. If I did, the only Republican candidate I could have seriously considered is
businessman Donald J. Trump. Unfortunately, businessman Donald J. Trump is not running
for president. The man who has been campaigning for the GOP nomination for president
is a body-snatcher politician who has taken over Donald J. Trump's voice.
I see tomorrow (Monday the 29th) is Extra-Day day. Think
of all those lucky kids born tomorrow who will only have a birthday
every four years (except in years ending in 00 unless
evenly divisable by 400 or whatever that rule is). I
remember once writing a bit of software to keep all that
stuff correct for "what day is 30-days from today?"
calculations. Alas with the OS in use at that time, the
query "what year is it" only returned two digits. Uh oh.
Fortunately I retired before having to fix all that. And
the OS only used a 24-bit memory address!
