Letters from Carl Bussjaeger, Jack Jerome, Ed Williams,
Robert Bass, MacGregor K. Phillips, Mike Pare, and Jack Jerome again:
by Joel Simon
Okay, so I live and work in northern California. Now and then I try to
remember how I ended up here, but it's all just too depressing. I work
in a no-smoking, multi-ethnic office that's so gosh-darn correct a
girlie tool calendar would spontaneously combust if it were ever so
foolish as to pass through the door. I'm from Detroit, ma'am. My idea
of a mixed drink is ice in my whiskey, and my closet doesn't contain
designer anything. I'm so obviously the token angry white guy that
just showing up for work regularly is an act of social aggression.
"Revenge of the Nerds"
by William Stone, III
The "Homeland Security Act" is the usual kind of atrocity that we've
all come to expect from the would-be slave-holders in Washington. In
an astounding violation of their Oaths of Office, lawmakers have
passed a bill that violates every single one of the Bill of Rights.

California, where Oliverio Martinez has filed a lawsuit, against the
by Carl Bussjaeger
I could be in an interesting position.
The feds now admit that they have various lists of un-approved
"subversives". These are tallies of people who have committed no
crimes, but whom the government distrusts, fears, or hates.
Several versions of one such list were distributed to banks, major
employers, credit institutions... pretty much any outfit that might
encounter someone on the list. A lot of companies started using
incarnations of the list for background checks: If you appear on that
one, forget opening a new bank account or getting a job.
There is a Storm Brewing
by Michael Peirce
There was a headline on Drudge recently that contained a strong hint
of the coming storm: Song Mocking Schroeder Tops German Pop
Charts ... It's about the lies and broken
promises of the head of state in Germany, Europe's strongest nation.
Herr Schroeder claimed he was going to cut taxes and get control of
the kleptocracy -- he sounded much like Clinton in fact. Now his
erstwhile German supporters are publicly mocking him.
The fabric is coming unraveled in Europe, in the United States, South
America, all over the world. Wherever men sought to worship government
as their god, their god has been profaned. The problem with idols is
that they don't deliver. It feels good at first, dancing around the
altar and swearing fealty to some graven image that promises the
lifetime gravy train, and of course, all the illicit sex you can
handle. But it always comes unwound.
Amending the Constitution, Part 28
by Lehr Duquesne
I know, every politician runs for office swearing to uphold the
Constitution, and as soon as he finds out that it doesn't authorize
his pet schemes, he either ignores his oath, or proposes to amend it.
Maybe I'm no different. You be the judge.
Fighting Feminists: Aren't We All Women?
by Wendy McElroy
How do you view women who say they've been battered by their husbands,
sexually harassed, or otherwise victimized by a man? Do you feel a
stab of skepticism at the accusation and wonder whether the man
involved will be treated fairly in court? If so, you may be
experiencing a consequence of PC feminism.
