"Life goes on, I forget just why" as the poet wrote. And so it does.
Goes, I mean. Goes on. Go on with you. Go away son, you bother me.
The stream of consciousness streams on ... er ... I forgot what I
was trying to say.
At any rate, here is Issue Number 255 of The Libertarian Enterprise,
Issue Number 1 was published on October 5, 1995, and here it is
almost 10 years later. Wow.
This issue includes our usual mix of opinion, pontification, humor,
humour, and hoooomer. And a new feature, "record reviews"the
question being, "does this review make you want to listen to the
records"? If so, handy links are provided for buying them from
Amazon.com. If not, well, life goes on, I forget just why.
Your Mr. Ed

Trolling for Government Programs
by Lady Liberty
One of the things that makes the Internet both helpful and enjoyable
is the ability to "talk" with those with whom you've got something
in common. Like many people, I'm a member of several e-mail groups
for just that reason. But, just as we've all had to learn to deal
with "spam" if we want the convenience of e-mail, both e-mail and
news groups have had to learn to deal with "trolls" (for those of
you who don't know, "spam" is junk e-mail, and "trolls" are those in
groups who exist almost solely to say things the majority of the
group will find highly objectionable and, if the troll is really
lucky, even incendiary).
Let's All Wear Yellow Stars
by Caleb Paul
On occasion, I do catch snippets of the news (despite generally trying
to avoid it) where I live, and I heard yesterday that the US government
is now photographing and fingerprinting people as they enter the US.
There are twenty seven countries (most in the EU) whose citizens are
exempt from this, but the US government is expecting those countries
to provide passports with biometric identification by the end of the
year. Apparently, Brazil has already responded to the US by making
its citizens go through similar procedures when they go to Brazil.
Government and Religion: the two biggest criminal enterprises in history
by Ron Beatty
From it's very inception, government is, and always has been,
nothing more than organized crime!
U.S out of Iraq NOW
by Jay P. Hailey
My Opinion is that U.S. forces should pack up and skedaddle out of Iraq
as soon as humanly possible.
You Can't Do That! (Without a License)
by Charles Stone, Jr.
The land of the free and the home of the brave, eh? That's what they
say, but try to do any one of hundreds of things without a
government license and you'll find out just how unfree we really are.
The Wizardry Lives On
by Ken Holder
Symphony conductor Leopold Stokowski died in 1977 at age 95, but his
wizardry with an orchestra lives on in recordings.
