The Cure
by L. Neil Smith
Had enough, yet? As you are no doubt aware, the United States Senate has joined the House of Representatives in forcing medical Marxism down the throats of tens of millions of Americans—a clear and unmistakable majority, if democracy still means anything to you—whether they want it or not.

Our Watchmen
by Chris Claypoole
The looming monstrosity that is the so-called health care bill (yet to be worked out in conference committee) is reminding me a bit of the Dark Freighter subplot of "Watchmen". It seems to drive those who are in proximity to it to a form of madness that becomes a monomania. Harry Reid has made repeated statements, on the record, that he will get something passed, no matter what the bill does or does not contain, and regardless of the cost. And the financial scoring, by the Congressional Budget Office, of the various bills presented by the House or Senate, is another Washington, DC joke.

Secession, the Second Amendment and Sun Tzu
by Russell D. Longcore
In the 6th Century BC, Chinese warrior Sun Tzu wrote The Art of War. It has been the definitive treatise on waging war for 26 centuries now. Only thirteen chapters, it was translated first in 1782 when a French Jesuit priest living in China, Joseph Amiot, acquired a copy of it, and translated it into French. Subsequent translations have honed the text into English.

Detainees Are Not Persons—This means you!
by Jim Davidson
The Obama administration coerced the Supreme Court to make the following ruling: anyone the president declares to be an "enemy combatant" who is detained by the USA military government is not a person. Therefore, such unpersons have no rights, no protections under the constitution. You are all slaves. Stop working, and you are the enemy. Stop paying taxes, you are the enemy. Stop obeying mindlessly, you are the enemy.

by Paul Bonneau
I have just got into re-reading Robert Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, a book I read when it first came out in 1974, a book that truly impressed me. But I have forgotten much of it, and want to see if it has aged well. First thing it did was bring back floods of memories, because this was in my heavy motorcycle period.

How Science Fiction Saved Me from Hell—I Mean Jr. High School
by Bob Wallace
I had a pretty good time in 6th grade, especially the last half. Being only 11 years old, I naively assumed there would be a linear progression. If 6th grade was this good, then 7th grade should be even better! And 8th grade, still better! And so on.

The Fraud of "Global Warming" is a Plutocrat's Wet Dream
by Jim Davidson
Let's take this in two parts. First, global warming is a theory that falsely claims that man made greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide, especially that produced in industrial equipment and transportation machinery, is threatening to cause a run away greenhouse effect that would leave Earth in a few decades much like Venus—unless drastic and economy shattering steps are taken right now.
