Letters to the Editor
from A.X. Perez, Dick Wetherbee, Sean Gabb, and Jews for the
Preservation of Firearms Ownership
by L. Neil Smith
Okay, class, it's time for a review.
A "fnord", in case you've forgotten (or never knew) is a special
symbol that, as Discordian teachings would have it, gets inserted in
magazine or newspaper articles, or in radio or television programs, by
our Secret Rulers (you know who they are), to alarm and terrify the
population at an unconscious level, setting off a very carefully
preconditioned urge to hurry to government authority for safety and
The War Inevitable
by Jim Davidson
"Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm
which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated;
we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and
have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the
ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our
remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our
supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with
contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may
we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no
longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free-- if we mean to
preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been
so long contending--if we mean not basely to abandon the noble
struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have
pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our
contest shall be obtainedwe must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must
fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!"
Patrick Henry 23 March 1775
Confessions of an Illegal Immigrant
by Dick Wetherbee
I have enjoyed J. D. Morris's articles on immigration
and have neither the desire nor the knowledge to contradict anything he
has said. I would like to tell tale of an illegal worker. I lived, usually
legally, on a tourist visa, in Mexico for more than 5 years. I occasionally
overstayed my visa, making me an illegal immigrant.
by A.X. Perez
Now to the point of this article. When we talk about
problems with statists trying to disarm people we usually talk about gun
control. How about addressing knife control once in a while?
Most of the time, these are my cars!
by Marc V. Ridenour
When gas hit $3.00+ a gallon the first time around,
I decided that I was going to use my bicycles as much as possible for my
short-trip transportation needs. One of them is a Giant Rincon, circa 2004,
and it has well over 2,000 miles on it by nowthat's 2,000+ miles' worth
of gasoline I haven't had to burn making short trips from my home to Safeway's,
Coffee Mania, the Show Low Public Library, and just about anywhere else I
need to go to that's not on the White Mountain Boulevard.
Note to Republicans: Impeach Bush
by Jonathan David Morris
It's great to see so many Republicans jumping off the
George W. Bush bandwagon. Now that it's considered political suicide for
the GOP to support its own president, maybe we'll finally have a party in
Washington with the guts to impeach him.
Media Censorship of the Presidential Campaign
by Daniel G. Jennings
The most infuriating aspect of the current Presidential
campaign is the sneaky way in which the media's talking heads tell the
candidates what to talk about.
Is July 4 A Christian Holiday?
by Doug Newman
America, we hear time and time again, was founded on
Christian principles. However, we almost never stop to examine what this
means. Another July 4 has come and gone. Like most holidays, it is not a
time for philosophical reflection. Rather, it is for fireworks, trips to
the beach or to the mountains, cookouts, baseball games and sales at the
mall. Oh sure, your pastor may say something thanking God for the liberty
we Americans enjoy. But this is about as far as it goes.
The Morning Mail
by L. Neil Smith
Recently, I wrote an article, "The NRA Disgraces
ItselfAgain", for my great and good friend Aaron Zelman of Jews
for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, about the shameful,
cowardly, collaborationist political activities of the National Rifle
Association, with regard to their corrupt and disgusting endorsement
of a bill, HR 2640, the "NICS Improvement Amendments Act of 2007",
introduced by the most mindlessly mouth-foaming opponent of self-defense
in Congress, Carolyn McCarthy (G,NY). The "G" stands for "ghoul", an
eater of the dead.
