“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

Another False Flag
by L. Neil Smith
Okay, I quit. I was never inclined to ask why a guy would take a gun into a crowded area and start shooting innocent, unarmed people at random until he killed himself or got killed by an armed defender. It sounds too much like The Parallax View or some other conspiracy movie. It has happened again and again. But I’m never going to ask again. I know why; the question now is who.

A Veterans Day Mediation

History most people will never know. Interesting Veterans Statistics off the Vietnam Memorial Wall: There are 58,267 names now listed on that polished black wall, including those added in 2010…

Where Did We Go Wrong?
by Harding McFadden
Open question: does anyone—should anyone—care what celebrities have to say about anything at all? I suppose you could care if they were thespians, good at their work, true professionals, who you’ve asked for advice in regards to acting. Likewise painters, pool players, and other similar worthies. Don’t get me started on if athletes are worth listening to in any respect, given their already enlarged senses of worthiness and entitlement, all the while promoting gang mentality and violence for its own sake. But this misses the earlier question: should we care what they all think otherwise?

That Uncomfortable Moment
Sarah A. Hoyt
You know, I know, everyone with a basic understanding of reality knows that it’s impossible—even given truly bad practices and lack of ballot custody—that every time ballots are “found” they are uniformly for the democrats.

The Couch Potato War Correspondent
by Harding McFadden
I thought I’d try something different this week, and as opposed to writing a short rant in a single sitting, stretch it out over a few days, to inform on myself, and the circles that I stumble through. I thought I’d do this because, like EVERY election (at least according to the talking [empty] heads of the American news services) the one coming up on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, will be the most important one in our lives.

Revenge of the Trailer Trash
by L. Neil Smith
I don’t believe that I’ve ever written about this subject before. I’m not much given to autobiography. I’m certainly not ashamed of it, I just never thought it was relevant. Even now, I don’t know exactly why I’m setting this down on “paper”. It just makes me very happy to do so. Whereas the prospect of writing about last week’s election makes me sick to my stomach.
