The War on the Border
by L. Neil Smith
Staggering under the crushing burden of two shooting wars
in the Middle East, America now finds herself increasingly involved in a third
deadly conflict, this one directly south of her border with Mexico. Nearly eight
thousand individualsgoodguys (however you define the term), badguys, innocent
bystandershave been killed so far.
Care, Feeding, and Use of the Defensive Autopistol
by Ron Beatty
I decided to write this article due to the huge numbers of
people buying new guns, once it became apparent that Obama was going to be
elected. However, those of us who have been using guns all our lives could do
with some review, as well.
Stand Up On Yer Own Hind Laigs
by Paul Bonneau
I was having one of those forum discussions, when federal
farm programs came up. I pointed out that most farmers and ranchers are
welfare queens. Well, this didn't sit very well with one rancher who started
flaming me. I had to laugh though, because if he thought I was just a nut or
an idiot he would have just blown the whole thing off and ignored me. But he
"doth protest too much", as Shakespeare put it, which meant he knew it was
true and didn't like to hear the truth. The truth hurt.
On Stock Market Conditions
by Jim Davidson
As stocks continue to decline, the "bottoming process"
appears to be entirely imaginary. A bust has become a panic and is well on
its way to becoming a rout. To get a sense of where things are going, let's
take a brief look at some of the damage so far. We already know about major
stocks like Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, and Lehman Brothers either failing
utterly or declining to the point where they've been bought out.
"Hill and Dale in Slumber Steeping"
by A.X Perez
Last summer my dog Petie, the pit bull in the rose bush,
died of old age and cancer. She would have hated this winter, none of the
nights got cold enough for me to bring her in to sleep.
Just Who is the Useful Idiot, Here?
by L. Neil Smith
There's always a critic lurking in the wainscotting.
For quite some time, I have debated with myself the advisability of what
I am about to do here. Those who know me well know I'm not afraid of a
fight onlinea flamewarin fact I relish it all too well.
