"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

Feeding the Ducks
(The Feature Article)

invest in america
Invest in America!

Far from being “the Land of the Free and Home
of the Brave,” most of America is actually the
Land of the Serfs and the Home of the Meek.


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

Letters to the Editor
from Paul Bonneau, Thomas Knapp, L. Neil Smith, and Jeff Fullerton

Feeding the Ducks
by L. Neil Smith
Robert Heinlein said that the smaller any unit of government happens to be, the harder it is to move. It's relatively easy to make enough fuss to alter the course of a federal government, for example, but everybody "knows" you can't fight City Hall and that the most viciously dictatorial level of government is the school board.

’Tolerance’ sounds great. But is there no limit to what we can wisely ’tolerate?’
by Vin Suprynowicz
Charles C. Haynes, who works out of Gannett’s financially strapped “Newseum” in Washington, holds a master’s degree from Harvard Divinity School and promotes himself as a champion of the First Amendment (though, being a statist Democrat, he has of course written in favor of federal “anti-hate-speech” legislation.

The Lone Writer Theory
by J. Kent Hastings
I listened to the unabridged audiobook edition of Stephen King's novel 11.22.63, after being favorably impressed by the first episode of Hulu's eight-part miniseries. The story is of a time-traveling teacher from 2011 interacting with the JFK assassination. The miniseries starts from 2016. Both effectively portray the shocking differences between the 21st Century and circa 1960, including music, dancing and food of the time as well as the inevitable social commentary about colored restrooms and sexism.

Anarchy—A Religion?
by Paul Bonneau
I had a completely unexpected response when I posted the previous article, “A Game of Nuclear Chicken” on an anarchist forum. Here I thought I was just making a simple request that could be discussed: 1) whether Hillary was more likely to kick off a nuclear war than Trump, and 2) whether either was very likely at all, regardless of their differences, to kick one off (clearly, even if Hillary was twice as likely as Trump to do so, for example, we needn’t worry about it much if her chance of starting one is 0.000002 compared to his 0.000001).

A Country Full of Traitors
by Nic Leobold
The corrupt, failing, pathetic nation called “united States of America”, with a fake “Constitution” that both fails to prevent duplicitous reading and interpretation and also is completely ignored as a matter of routine by the nation's injustice system, most government officers and major institutions, and national policies that glorify murdering and defrauding most of its citizens not to mention many foreign nationals, today has less claim to being “the Exceptional Nation” its neocon pundits and think tanks boast of than ever before.

Not a Rant
by A.X. Perez
Opponents of Campus Concealed Carry at UT Austin protested last week by carrying dildos. Strangely, this was a violation of Texas’s obscenity laws, but proponents of C Cubed supported their right to do so as an exercise of free speech and an “If you want to show off your toys, more power to you.” Proponents of C Cubed also reminded their opponents that if they had to use their dildos as defensive weapons they risked being in violation of the Texas law against carrying clubs as weapons in public. To repeat an earlier point, the supporters of C Cubed expressed their support for the First Amendment right of their opponents protesting others exercising their Second Amendment right.

The AltRight: Paul Gottfried Interviewed by Sean Gabb
by Sean Gabb
Now that Mrs Clinton has mentioned it, the Alternative Right is much in the news. Here is an interview I conducted in Bodrum with Paul Gottfried, generally accepted as the Founding Father of the Alternative Right. The interview dates from 2007, a year before, he made his AltRight speech to the Mencken Conference in Washington. The interview covers what Paul thinks is wrong with the American conservative movement, and what he would do to make it better.
