Time is short, so I will be brief. I am writing to ask your readers to come to the assistance of the Libertarian Party. Your readers may be aware that in recent conventions, the platform was breached, and we were subsequently raided by bobarrians. We have suffered many casualties, and even now, within our own bay, our ships are being boarded from the starboard side. The worst is now before us. As those of us who survived with principle intact prepare to deal head on with the root problem, we ask for your help. Our allies are meeting at takebackthelp.info where they will form a caravan to St. Louis. It is there that we will make our stand.

It just keeps getting better and better.
My sides hurt from laughing. Which may say more about how easily I am amused than the humor found here, or not.
Do it Right!
Mack Reynolds was a science fiction author and socialist. He loved freedom as he understood it. There are many self-proclaimed socialists of whom this is true, apparently it is socialists flying under false flags who are enemies of freedom, at least in the US, Perhaps it is the admitted socialists status as semi-outlaws that causes them to see a need to respect individual liberty. This does not apply on university and college campuses where support for socialism seems to be de rigueur, of course.
In the late Sixties and Seventies Mack Reynolds collated some earlier short stories to create his Black Man's Burden series. One of the activities in which his UN supported characters are engaged is a project to reforest the Sahara desert. I say that this sounds like a good idea. If the transnationalists and AGW sycophants need a project to keep them entertained why don't they build a series of nuclear powered desalinization and pumping stations to irrigate the Sahara and plant trees. This will sequester a lot of carbon dioxide and change weather patterns in a manner that can't be predicted but should make life interesting.
While private money may be spent on this the transnationalist distaste for other people making a profit dictates that this be paid for by government funds. Of course this will create thousands of jobs and investment opportunities but careful manipulation can prevent private individuals from benefiting and concentrate the profits in the hands of a few corporations selected by the Security Council. Or not, what the hell.
Hey if you're going to engage in socialism do it up right and big scale!
Might the U.N. be leaving these United States?
The owner of Dubai has invited the United Nations to move its headquarters from New York City to the Emirate, and this has been widely received in the Big Apple as a major good idea.

I've communicated this information to L. Neil Smith, and he may be bringing you notice thereof. I thought you might like to see the Forbes article in addition. Thank you.
I kid thee not
So I read on the web today that some poor Brit got busted for getting too loud when she and her old man got busy (the article does not say if he got busted too but apparently he was quite vocal also). She is on an eight week suspended sentence for a year if she shares her experience with the neighborhood again. That is if she gets too loud in the next year she spends eight weeks in jail.
This is not a woman living in an apartment, but one who is living in her own house. According to the report it recordings made during the investigation sound as if she and her husband are in great pain (The beautiful pain of Stranger in a Strange Land perhaps).
A while back I was trying to write a story about an ethical cop forced into the secret police because he kept getting into scrapes with the party apartchiki. A scut work job he gets stuck with is investigating a similar complaint in an apartment. Instead of busting the lovers in question he forces the contractor to properly insulate the rooms in that building. Of course I was being silly and describing the stupidest situation I could think of, something that could never be topped in the real world.
I never realized the nadir the urge to butt into other people's affairs could reach. Perhaps the people of the town of Washington in England can be persuaded to help this couple sound proof their house better. Meanwhile I think I shall try to imagine a greater depth of the folly of tyrants, but I doubt I will succeed in imagining something they won't do.

I just read about your latest bit of community relations, to wit:
Your thugs have really helped to put Vancouver on the map, right in time for the Winter Olympics. Of course, it's okay because you "apologised". I noticed that you only apologised because your goons attacked the "wrong" suspect. I was just wondering if such criminal assaults are standard department policy or just common practice. The fact that the "right" suspect was arrested "on suspicion of assault" is hilarious. How badly was he assaulted for being suspected of assault, by the way?
You people should apply with the RCMP; they need more psychopaths to murder immigrants at the airport.
Let me know how your "thorough investigation" comes out, eh? I'll hold my breath until your bully boys receive a slap on the wrist and two days off with pay. I notice from the news report, by the way, that you have already begun blaming the victim. (No doubt he was wielding a stapler or stick of bubble gum...) Is that also official department policy or just more informal modus operandus?)
I await your replies to my questions.
Very sincerely indeed,
For those of your readers who share my interest in Sun spots, here is the site to check for current events.
My friend Carl Helmers sent me there from his helmers.com site today.
Or you can make a pinhole in a piece of cardboard and project an image of the Sun on a clean white sheet of paper, if the Sun is out.
Looks not quite spotless tonight, two spot clusters in evidence. YMMV.
