The Grift
by L. Neil Smith
The grift. It's as old as humanity—possibly even older. Perhaps there were Neanderthal con men, Homo habilis hucksters, long before Homo sap (no abbreviation) first raised his credulous eyes to the stars.

The Case for GOP presidential candidate Gary Johnson
by Ben F. Irvin
Former Governor Gary Johnson is still the best candidate for libertarians to support for those that engage in real politics. Although I have long supported Ron Paul, Johnson makes a better libertarian candidate for the GOP presidential candidacy for the following reasons:

9/11: Even If the Official Story Is True, the Official Response Is Still Wrong
by Doug Newman
I am going to assume, for the sake of this article, that 9/11 happened exactly according to the official story. Even if this story is entirely true, the official response has still been totally wrong, as have been the oft-repeated clichés of those who believe the official story.

Libertarian Law: The Math of Probable Cause
by DataPacRat
Combining a few disparate bits of math may give us some useful conclusions about the nature of legal systems, and why some systems are more effective and stable than others. Don't worry if you don't like numbers; nothing here is more complicated than multiplication, and I'll work through that for you.

On the Juror's creed

Flash Editorials October 1, 2011
by Russell D. Longcore
International: The German Parliament voted overwhelmingly to authorize more bailouts for European Union members. What the hell are they thinking? Germany's economy is just about the only one of the 17-member EU whose economy isn't in the toilet. But that won't last long at this rate. Remember... 16 leeches... 1 host.

XCOR Wet Lease
by Jim Davidson
You may remember that there used to be people who wanted to fly in space. Way back in the last millennium, I was one of those people. It was 1968, and I was six years old, sitting in my father's basement where he had moved the television set (a clunky old black and white one, cheapest he could get, without a remote control other than the youngest son) after the political conventions. You might remember the police rioting in Chicago and bashing the heads of a lot of demonstrators at the Democrat national convention, if you were alive back then. Or, you know, you could look it up.
