Number 647, December 4, 2011
"Fascism" is a 20th century variation on the system
Adam Smith denounced as "mercantilism". Not only
will it not fix what's wrong with America now,
it is what's wrong with America now.

Herman Cain, Fugitive Slave
by L. Neil Smith
I don't write about race very often, because it's unimportant to me. But allow me to preface this by admitting I never liked Herman Cain. Not as a presidential candidate.

I can think instantly of three black men (Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, and Richard Boddie) who would make excellent candidates, and Cain, for all his mercantilist baggage, would have made a better President than that crypto-Democrat Mitt Romney, or America's answer to Benito Mussolini, Il Douchebag himself, Newt Gingrich.

Guns?".
