“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

The Truth Is Down Here
by L. Neil Smith
This may not be the strangest idea I’ve ever had, but it’s pretty damned strange. I was born in 1946. Whatever the hell took place in Roswell, New Mexico happened in 1947. Weather balloon my ass. I have been lied to and kept in the dark—and so have you—by the Deepest State ever since then, more than 70 years, and I’m fucking sick and tired of it. We the People can’t make intelligent decisions about the country we’re supposed to be running for ourselves if we’re denied the facts of objective reality. They make fun of us because we can’t and call us “deplorables”; they call us “credulous boomer rubes”. Sure, I am perfectly aware that this is a republic we’re living in, not a democracy, but it is a democratically-operated republic, damnit, and I never voted to be deceived at every turn by overpaid bureaucrats and overstuffed uniforms betraying their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.

How Things Have Always Been
by Sarah A. Hoyt
Part of the problem with humans is that we tend to get used to “how things have always been.” And when those “things” are comfortable for us, it’s hard to imagine them changing. Sure, the human animal is adaptable, but sometimes it takes us a while to figure out how to work around when things change. For instance, say we move the furniture in the house: if I come downstairs in the middle of the night to get water or deal with screaming cats (it happens) I will walk carefully around where the sofa used to be and then walk right into where it is, or perhaps trip over the coffee table and fall on the cat. (In addition to my being completely night blind, I’m usually without my glasses in these excursions.)

They Despise You
by Jim Davidson
You are despised. China’s government privately discussed in 2002 their plans to use biological weapons to exterminate the human population of North America and occupy it with their people. Don’t be smug, though, your government and that of the United Kingdom made very similar plans to exterminate the population of Africa.

Progressive Hell
by Sean Gangol
Recently, I found this article on Taki’s Magazine, by Joe Bob Briggs, titled “Who Cut the Balls off of San Francisco?” For those of you who are unfamiliar with the work of Joe Bob Briggs, he is a columnist that is most known as “The Drive-In Critic.” He also played bit parts in various movies, but I personally remember him as the host of TNT’s Monstervision during the mid and late nineties. I used to love the way he would critique horror, sci-fi, exploitation and various B-Movies with his mixture of blunt humor that he took from his redneck alter-ego, along with an insight that was surprisingly witty and intelligent.

If I Was The Donald…
by L. Reichard White
Well, although my high-priced lawyers strongly advised against it, I’ve agreed to give a statement—on the record—about my own Senate impeachment trial. Several in fact. But I think one should be enough. Now I have to admit I’m a bit gun-shy because I’ve been under constant attack by the Democrats since even before I took office. They called that first attack Crossfire-Hurricane. Catchy name. And I of course came out squeaky clean.

Part 16 & 17
by Jim Davidson
Little Bob looked at his sister Kathy. She was completely gone, staring at their mom and dad who were themselves completely enwrapped in one another, kissing, embracing, murmuring soft words and kissing more. Little Bob rolled his eyes. It wasn’t helping dissolve the scene before him, so he turned his head and rolled his eyes in a different direction. Wait, what? His sister Amy was holding an IV fluids bottle off the ground so it could drain into that guy, Brandon, who had gotten himself shot. Two med techs were gathered there and performing emergency surgery to sew up some internal artery that had been opened in the firefight. But that was all ordinary emergency medicine, about which Little Bob was familiar from family drills, online videos, and life saving training sessions with the Junior Gold Cross.

Animals Are Property
by L. Neil Smith
Last Friday I watched an episode of X-Files in which innocent zoo animals were being abducted—apparently by benign, superior UFOsies (the ones who mutilate cattle and stick needles in women’s bellies)—to save them from a despicable mankind responsible for the erasure of thousands of species every year. Or every week, I forget which.
