by Carl Bussjaeger
Dubya epitomizes the old saw about lying and politicians' moving lips.
This continuing war - please note that the US and UK never did stop
bombing Iraq (in a no-fly zone police action never authorized by the
UN) after the supposed end of the 1991 Gulf War - has more to due with
hawkish arm flexing, oil, and Bush family pride than security or justice.
Garbage In, Garbage Out
by William Stone, III
A number of things are operating to our advantage in our fight against
the would-be slaveholders of the 21st century -- particularly the ones
holed up in Washington, D.C. As I've written previously, the primary
weapon being used by our enemies is the "American KGB" (the correct
Russian translation of "Homeland Security"). One of the weapons
wielded by the American KGB is the Total Information Awareness (TIA)
program, which the KGB envisions to be the "permanent record" with
which your grade-school principle threatened you.
I Am a Gun Owner
by Carl Bussjaeger
Despite the supposed win for armed pilots contained in the Homeland
Security Act (I guess something in all those hundreds of pages
had to be less than grotesque), the individual right to keep and bear
arms is still in trouble. Thanks to the mainstream media, too darned
many Americans can only see gun owners as bare-pated white
supremacists, camouflaged militia nutcases, evil "DC snipers," or just
everyday, run-of-the-mill criminals.
Affirmative Action Insults Immigrant Contributions
by Wendy McElroy
The crossfire of commentary about the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to
review affirmative action makes one thing clear. The Left thinks it owns the
concepts of "justice," "equality," and "freedom." Those who oppose
affirmative action are dismissed as "just not getting it." The truth
is, we understand these concepts too well.
Freedom's Most Dangerous Enemy
by Michael Ferguson
Our freedoms in America are under attack. There is no question about
that. Politicians in Washington D.C. have been telling us about the
danger we are in for over a year now as part of the government's
effort to ram "homeland security" proposals through the legislative
process. The most frightening aspect of our current crisis is that our
freedoms are not in peril because of Al Queda or Osama Bin Laden, but
that our freedoms are under assault because of George W. Bush and his
administration, particularly John Ashcroft.
