There ain't no such thing as a right to health care
by F. Paul Wilson
There. I said it. Someone had to. The acronym would be TANSTAARTHC. Nowhere near as euphonius as TANSTAAFL.

Operation Wolf Watch
by Don Meinshausen
As we all should know by now the state survives and grows by getting information through informants. It was estimated that East Germany had at least half the population informing on the other half.

Will You Fight?
by Rob Sandwell
A friend of mine who would best be described as a "young professional" asked me this question over dinner the other night. "Will you fight? Or will you leave the country?"

Goldman Sachs Laughs All the Way to Their Bank
by Jim Davidson
Today's Financial Times has two interesting stories about Goldman Sachs. In one, they report that owners of Goldman Sachs bailed out of $438 million in stock between September 2007 and April 2008, followed by sales of $691 million in stock after Lehman Brothers failed in September 2008 over the following eight months. Financial Times noted that these sales of stock liquidated positions held by Goldman Sachs shareholders at a time when the government had provided over $10 billion of taxpayer money to prop up the company.

Let Me Be King For Just One Year
by Russell D. Longcore
Let's face it, my friends. The Federal Government in its present form is irretrievably broken. No tinkering, no new President, no new laws will fix the Federal Government of the United States of America. If the USA wants to avoid mass state secessions, a radical change must be embraced.

Dialog With a Propagandist
by Paul Bonneau
I was driving home one evening and decided to keep myself awake by listening to the local version of NPR (National Propaganda Radio). I entertain myself by sifting out the sly and sophisticated propaganda techniques they use.

System? SYSTEM!!! We Don't Need No Steenking System!!!
by Wayne Grantham
In light of the gradual nationalization of medicine, I keep hearing reference to a thus far undefined term, "health care system." Health care system. What might be the definition of such a phrase?

Enough of the Green
by Sean Gangol
When I began to write this article I was hoping to have it done by Earth Day, but I found myself occupied by other things. Not that it matters, since the mainstream media and the government schools sprout off green nonsense on a daily basis. Most of the green rhetoric is spread by radical leftists that are more hell bent on destroying capitalism then protecting the earth. I remember the misinformation that was fed to me and my peers. They told us that landfills were filling up and recycling was the only way to stop it. They made it seem like the environment was getting worse and drastic action needed to be taken.
