First, this word:

* * *

Fully empowered decentralized Ron Paul activists who answer to no one are shooting for another ten million. This time it's going to be on December 15 Bill of Rights Day, and December 16 Boston Tea Party, two famous days in our American Culture.

A sign bomb campaign will precede those dates to inform the world. Make sure the website link below is plastered to your vehicles and other visible locations.

Yard sales to raise money for Ron Paul are another way to help.

Watch for news on

You will notice that lists only the 4th quarter totals of some 7.3 million raised. the total is close to 20 million dollars since Ron announced for President.

It's called Honest Accounting.

Second, this word:

To celebrate the return of TLE's domain name, I offer the first installment of a new cartoon series (this should run about six or eight installments all together).

The Fall of the Towers
by L. Neil Smith
Any historian will tell you that every culture is sustained by a mythology, stories of fabled heroes of the past it tells its children in order to pass along that culture's ideas of what is virtuous and valuable.

Starship Troopers Revisited
by A.X. Perez
Robert A. Heinlein is considered one of the patron saints of Libertarian thought. His The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress created the phrase "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch" (TANSTAAFL) which is a bedrock of libertarian economic thought. However, he is also the author of Starship Troopers, which has been condemned for being militaristic and fascist. So how does this reconcile wjth Heinlein's libertarian philosophy? The answer is to admit that yup, it is militaristic, but no. it isn't fascistic.

The World Is My Phone Booth
Cell phones cause brain death. . . or is it the other way 'round?
The Kaptain's Log

by Manuel Miles, aka Kapt Kanada
Having endured the plague of the ineluctable "cell phone" with laudable restraint for some years, I must now speak out against this technological demon. Surely, if ever the devil wanted to harass the few of us who are capable of forming complex thoughts, the cellular empowerment of the chattering classes would be the best tool for the job. There is also considerable evidence that the portable phone habit destroys what few brain cells its addicts initially possessed.
