As Alan Sherman once sang: "Hello young lovers, you're under arrest!"
And as the People Who Think They Own The World continue to do their
best to make everything illegal without first getting permission,
that song comes to mind.

Suppose You Were Fond of Books...
by L. Neil Smith
Suppose you were fond of books...
You liked their leather bindings, their fancy endpapers, the way
they speak to you of other times and places, the way they feel in your
hand. You even liked the way they smell.
Open Letter To President Bush on the Signing of the REAL ID Act
by Bill St. Clair
Congratulations on signing the National ID into law. Now that all
Americans are going to be tracked from birth to death in one huge
database, I'm sure you'll be able to prevent anyone from doing
anything you or your handlers don't like. Liberty was so messy!
The Yankee September 11th
by Jonathan David Morris
In 2001, a few weeks after 9/11, the New York Yankees
lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks in one of the most

Pulling the Rug Out
by Lady Liberty
In his 2004 campaign, and now in his first months of his
second term of office, President George W. Bush is talking up his plans for
Social Security. At the same time, politicians of every stripe are either

typical with government, no matter how many viewpoints there may be, there
seem to be none that are actually coming from any kind of a rational position.

few facts available to the general public.

by Charles Stone, Jr.
Such kvetching and wailing about the Social Security System.
The Democrats are insisting that the Bush plan is racist, sexist, ageist, fiscally
irresponsible, and a repudiation of the great Leftist icon, Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The Republicans are sure they're not any of those things but they are so cowardly
that they will not fight to make the changes.
The End of AmericaMay 10, 2005
by Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership
On Tuesday, May 10, 2005, America became a true police
state. Your U.S. senators votedunanimously, with no
discussion, and without even reading the billto create
a national ID card.
