Or Face the End of Constitutional Democracy
by Paul Craig Roberts
Unless Congress immediately impeaches Bush and Cheney,
a year from now the US could be a dictatorial police state at war with Iran.
The Government is Bad, But What Can We Do?
by Kat Kanning
We know the government is bad. The question always
is, "What can we do about it?" The problem is so big. We start feeling
like there isn't anything we can do alone. We band together in movements
like the Free State Project (freestateproject.org) to concentrate our
efforts. Still the problem of the federal government is massivethey
appear to have limitless resources (stolen from us) to harass, jail, rob,
torture, kill. What is even 1000 dissenters against that?
Global Warming Propaganda
by Paul Bonneau
I watched a show on The History Channel last night,
about the "little ice age" that afflicted Europe (and likely other places)
from about 1300 to the mid 1800's. There were topics about effects of the
little ice age such as why Americans drink so much beer, and why Stradivarius
violins sound so good. These were interesting to watch. The predictable thing
about the show was how they brought in a discussion of global warming at the end.

During the Cold War the US spent a reasonably large
sum of money broadcasting Radio Free Europe and the now defunct USSR spent
a reasonable amount of money jamming RFE. Meanwhile high (more wattage than
FCC regs allow) power AM stations like KOMA in Oklahoma City (Grandfathered

transmitters in Mexico were transmitting a mix of rock and roll, news, ads,
and smartass commentary that often reached Moskva. Any Russians that tuned
in must have gotten an interesting opinion of life in America from these guys.
A Bad Week For Sports?
by Jonathan David Morris
Is it just me or has this been the best week in the
history of American professional sports? Somehow, in the course of the
last few days, the usual sports discussion has evolved to include steroids,
the mafia, and the electrocution of pit bulls. None of these things are
good things. In fact, they're all bad things. But the flipside to that is
that bad things are interesting. To me, the PR catastrophes that've hit
every major professional league make this the most interesting sports
week everor at least more interesting than discussing George Bush's
