The Works (So Far) of L. Neil Smith

What Went Wrong With the Cruz Campaign
(The Feature Article)

Times when you wish you had a
.45 Win Mag pistol on your belt.

(tip o' the hat to Marc V. Ridenour))

Conservatives regularly mealy-mouth about the
First Amendment, lie about and willfully
misinterpret it, exactly the same way that
Progressives mealy-mouth about the Second Amendment.


The Impeachable Offenses of Barack Hussein Obama
by Terence James Mason
In 7 parts.

Letters to the Editor
from Harald Mischnick, Jeff Fullerton, and A.X. Perez

What Went Wrong With the Cruz Campaign
by L. Neil Smith
When I was 15 years old, in the 10th grade, I knew a young lady my age I'll call Sue. Sue was a tall, very cool, relatively sophisticated number, very attractive with long eyelashes,long, long legs, olive skin, brown eyes that were pools a guy could fall into and drown in, and a wry, intelligent sense of humor. She looked a bit like the girls in Cretan wall paintings. Like most of the guys in our class of 1964, I figured that she was out of my league, and probably dated college guys. I owe Sue an unpayable, life-altering debt: she gave me my first copy of Atlas Shrugged; I still have it, held together with rubber bands.

Revealed! True Identity of the God of This World!
by Don Templeton
The most "appropriate" attitude to bring to the table when studying religion is that of hard-nosed skepticism with no box of passes for the religion which is currently in favor with the totalitarian left. I have sat through this class and bitten my tongue but those days are over. First, I have an axe to grind against ALL religion. Religion is the kissing cousin of the other worst thing to ever befall humanity: the State. Second, religion is not spirituality or occultism. Religion is a control grid extended over a population which regulates behaviors and beliefs on the part of the masses and those beliefs are always beliefs which end up being harmonious to maintaining the local ruling hierarchy, a gang of parasites living off the productiveness of the subject population. This is MY thesis as to the nature of religion when stripped to its most fundamental reality. Religion is an enemy of free humanity, just like the State and religion exists to legitimize the rule of pirates by invoking divine decree to dazzle the masses with. I loath religion for all the sickening atrocities it enthusiastically encourages among the tribes of humanity.

What You Mean "WE" Pale-face?
by L. Reichard White
Did you ever question "The majority rules?" Why not? It's the most famous example of what we can call for convenience, "The Collective Fallacy." With the help of it's more subliminal offspring, this fallacy has twisted Western cultures into tormented shapes inimical to life and human nature.

The Crisis
by Thomas Paine
THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but "to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER," and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.


If you haven't read/voted go read What Shall I Write Next? by L. Neil Smith.

Well, the Stupid Party and the Evil Party are going at it still. And yet every time I vote for "None of the Above" I never see that listed in the election returns. It almost makes me think the elections are rigged or something.
