with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand.”—T.D. Melrose

The Pot and The Kettle
(The Feature Article)

A Portable Table!
A Portable Table!

I am here to tell you that peaceful
submission to evil is not only not a
higher morality, it is not morality
at all. It is a moral atrocity.


Letters to the Editor
from A.X. Perez, Jeff Fullerton, Rob Gillespie, and The Illuminati

The Pot and The Kettle
by L. Neil Smith
I listened to the entire speech that Barack Hussein Obama made in Indiana on Friday, every repulsive word. I listened to that so-far unconvicted criminal fraudster more on that occasion than I ever did when millions of gullible idiots told me he was President, establishing beyond a doubt that my decision back then—not to listen to him—was well-founded. It would have been an utterly obscene waste of my time. Never have I heard more lies trash-compacted into a single presentation. This pathetic creature is a pathological liar who is constitutionally incapable of telling anything even remotely resembling the truth.

Why Republican Cresent Hardy and Judge Jerry Tao are a whole lot
better for Nevada than Democrats Steven Horsford and Elissa Cadish.
And why voters should reject Michael Roberson, too

by Vin Suprynowicz
Nevada isn’t the laissez-faire, small-government paradise it once was. But it’s still enough better than such collectivist hellholes as Chicago and California that people keep fleeing those regimes to flock here, a state with no state income tax, a state where there’s a low cost of living, plenty of free parking (always excepting government courthouses) and (sometimes with the exception of urban Las Vegas) no one has a problem if you want to cook outside on your charcoal grill, use a plastic straw, smoke just about anything, or wear your sidearm on your hip.

Eleven at Fifty
by Jim Davidson
Many years ago, early in my career, I worked for Deke Slayton and David Hannah, Jr., in Houston, Texas. We built Starfire rockets. We launched them from White Sands Missile Range. Our customer was the NASA Center for the Commercial Development of Space at the University of Alabama at Huntsville, and their payload was “Consort” which contained materials science experiments. Starfire was about half the cost of the Black Brant IX rocket it was based on, and about a third the time was involved from mission start to launch. Space Services, the company doing the launch integration, obtained the first commercial launch licence from the Federal Aviation Administration, launched in March 1989, retrieved the payload for the customer, and prepared for a second flight in November 1989. Sadly, the second flight was a failure due to coning in the first stage. The payload was retrieved, and my role with the company ended. I moved on to working with Walt Anderson, Bob Richards, and Todd Hawley at a company called Microsatellite Launch Systems.

Stopping Power—Talk at Temple Beth Shir Shalom
J. Neil Schulman
In light of the October 27, 2018 shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, this is an address I made April 30, 1993 at Los Angeles's Temple Beth Shir Shalom, included in my 1994 Charlton Heston endorsed book Stopping Power: Why 70 Million Americans Own Guns—a PDF free download linked from http://www.GunClock.com

The Lunacy Continues
by Sean Gangol
When I started to write my last article, the pipe-bombs hadn’t yet been sent to prominent members of the Democratic Party, as well as members of the mainstream media and Robert De Niro. I was originally going to have an update section at the bottom of my last page addressing these incidents. I initially thought these alleged attacks were nothing more than a series of false flags created by Democratic operatives. That was before the perpetrator was caught by the authorities and it seems that he actually was a Trump supporter. I suppose it is still possible that these incidents were a series of false flags, but then again there are misguided fools that lurk on all sides of the political spectrum.

Caledonia Beckons
by Sonora Jack & Friends
Hundreds of years before the current era (about 300 BC) the Caledonii lived in the highlands of what is today Scotland. Our people built round houses which symbolised the equality amongst us, that there was no hierarchical elite, no imposed aristocracy in our culture. Today we have a stateless tribe.

Paying It Forward
by Sarah A. Hoyt
Paying it forward is a well known principle of all Heinlein fans, since he advocated it so strenuously.

Latest News & Views from Greater Appalachia: Terror Strikes in Squirrel Hill
by Jeff Fullerton
A terrible tragedy took place a week ago in Pittsburgh at the Tree of Life Synagogue—a well known icon of the regional Jewish community in Squirrel Hill. The story broke late morning while I was at work and I followed it through the day picking up the details of the casualties and the perpetrator who I won’t mention by name because he really doesn’t deserve the publicity he has already gotten. It was a disturbing act—though I find some of the reactions of people to the situation even more disturbing.
