Voter Registration is a One Way Street
by Dennis Wilson
Since I now REFUSE to vote, (see my TLE articles) I wondered
if I could UNregister as a voter. After searching thru all the voter registration
material for my state, I concluded that voter registration is a one way street.

Free Information on The Free Market
by Adam Edwards
Carl the Customer goes to the store and buy a candy bar he
likesa GoonBar, paying his dollar or so. On the same day in Carl's town,
lots of other people bought candy bars as wellsome of them GoonBars, more
bought YummyBars and fewer bought DisgustoBars. In every town in the country,
similar transactions occur. Some customers buy candy in bulk at a warehouse
store, some pay extra in a movie theater, most buy from a grocery or convenience
store. In some towns people really love DisgustoBars, but in more towns, more
people like YummyBars. Every one of these people has made a decision without
consulting anyone else and chosen the candy they wanted the most at that
particular time, at the combination of price and convenience that best suited
them at the time. If Carl gets tired of GoonBars and decides to purchase a
different candy bar or even stop eating candy altogether, he certainly could
do so without notice or permission.

High Brow stuff. Almost a year ago.
No Lament for Libertarians
by Adam Edwards

collapse of the economy and pitying them for their intellectual immaturity.
Displayed in this article is a misunderstanding of the market and the ethics
put forth by libertarians.

Here is a new "project" of mine. I get tired of getting
these "immigrant scare" emails, so I decided to add some commentary to this
one before I passed it along. (McManigal commentary in Blue)
