Weld: You’re Fired!

"Gun control is the idea that it's better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand."—T.D. Melrose

William Weld: You‘re Fired!
by L. Neil Smith
Libertarians across the entire country were dismayed and nauseated last week to hear “their” Vice Presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Governor William F. Weld denounce, in the most mechanically and historically ignorant terms possible, the private , civilian ownership of AR-15 rifles—apparently because they can be loaded with more than five cartridges (the appropriate loading, the moron claims, for military weapons) and address handguns as possibly an even worse “problem”, inspiring even as squishy a publication as Reason.com to assert “William Weld Isn‘t a Softcore Libertarian—He Just Isn‘t a Libertarian At All”.

The Byzantine Empire:
A Greek Nation State Defended by Armed Citizen Militias

by Richard Blake
As the author of nine novels set in seventh century Byzantium, I‘m often asked: Why choose that period? There‘s always been strong interest within the historical fiction community in Classical Greece, and in Rome a century either side of the birth of Christ, and the western Dark Ages. With very few exceptions — Robert Graves‘ Count Belisarius, for example, or Cecelia Holland‘s Belt of Gold — Byzantium in any period of its long history is a neglected area. Why, then, did I choose it?

The Roadhouse Rules of Engagement
by Sean Gangol
As much as I hate Bill O‘Reilly, there are times where I at least understand how he feels. I have always given O‘Reilly flack for the way that he tries to win an argument by shouting down his opponent, but there are times I can understand why he does that. Especially when you have an opponent that won‘t listen. Hell, forget O‘Reilly. There are times when I feel like that Sam Kinison character from the movie, Back to School before he is about to go off on some bubble headed student.

What My Family Doesn‘t Get
by Nic Leobold
Our family is no more. Too many people did too much stuff to others, and most of us don‘t talk any longer. It used to be a lot different. Thanksgivings, Christmases/Hanukkahs, birthdays, and frequent dinners out at gourmet restaurants, Super Bowls, trips out to Westchester, New Jersey, Long Island, back yard barbeques and days at the pool, sailing and leisure at Martha‘s Vineyard, our family had a lot, and the elder family statesmen and women shared everything with all of us.But there were darksides.

I sware, folks, the world has gone bonkers. Oh, wait, right, "Crazy Years"—I forgot.

Mr. J. Neil Schulman informs us we can watch his move Alongside Night from free from this link here: [free movie view link]

Oh yes, someone let us know that last week's article by Bill Bennett, apparently isn't by him at all. At least according to one of the web-debunker sites. And you know everything on a debunker site is true... or something.
