“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

Letters to the Editor
from Mike Blessing

Rush Limbaugh
by L. Neil Smith
Rush Limbaugh is dead. I have always detested squishy euphemisms like “passed away” or “went to meet his maker” or even just “gone”. A great man, one of the greatest the United States of America has ever known, fully equal to the Founding Fathers in his own way, has just died, and all of us are, each and every one of us, the poorer for it.

Again And Again What Are The Facts
by Sarah A. Hoyt
I’m so old, I remember when the Soviet Union fell. I also remember what happened afterwards. I suppose it makes sense for me to be beset with this sense of deja vu right now, because we live in a truly bizarre time. I honestly feel like we’re watching someone trying to build the USSR after the Berlin wall has crumbled and as everyone is escaping in every possible direction, and some imaginary, in cars that were more or less made of cardboard and spit, and which they drove until they couldn’t drive anymore, which is why Portugal was littered with Trabants.

The Cliché I Hate the Most
by Sean Gangol
A few years back I read this book titled The Tyranny of the Cliches: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas by Jonah Goldberg, which I can honestly say that I didn’t care for as much as his previous book, Liberal Fascism. It’s not to say that there weren’t aspects that I agreed with, but I took issue with some of the points he made against the “Slippery Slope” argument. It may be a cliché, but it happens to be one that is actually true. Despite the disagreements that I had with this book; it did inspire me to come up with a list of annoying cliches that statists like to make. As a you probably guessed by now, this was something that I intended to write years ago, but it was one of those things that ended up on the backburner when I found more pressing subjects to write about (story of my life). Though recently I was inspired to revisit the cliché I hate the most.

It’s Time To Build Our Own Economy
by Andrew Torba
The problem with the American Populist movement is that it was centralized. Centralized movements give the enemy a central attack vector to target and overcome. One man, who took on the weight of the world, became the sole focus of both the enemy and of the American Populist movement itself for over five years.

Climate Change? Eat, Drink, & Be Merry!
by L. Reichard White
At the end of October 2018, the United Nations—and later in November, the U.S. Government—issued reports buttressing previous warnings about climate change in the next 100 years, assuming warming rather than cooling, blaming it mostly on CO² emissions, and particularly including 100-year economic forecasts of the anticipated damage. Austrian Economists—and even honest non-Austrians—know better. As non-Austrian John Kenneth Galbraith put it—and markets and government budgets constantly reaffirm—" The only function of economic forecasting is to make astrology look respectable."

A Little Trip Down Memory Lane
Federal Marshals Threaten, Censor Libertarian Enterprise

by L. Neil Smith
February 16, 2011 — For the first time, in its sixteenth year of publication, this journal of libertarian views and opinion—bound by an absolute moral resolve never to initiate force against anyone for any reason, nor to advocate or delegate its initiation—has been threatened by agents of the federal government and ordered to remove content from its website.
