Three-Card Barry and the U.N. Treaty Flim-Flam
by L. Neil Smith
I am not a lawyer. Nor do I play one on TV. But this gives me an advantage: I am still able to read, and to think. I can count the lawyers I know who are still capable of that on the fingers of one elbow. Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration. Some of my best friends, as the saying goes, are lawyers. But like most libertarians and decent conservatives, I discovered, somewhere back along the line, that there is nary an attorney in this country who possesses the memory, or the understanding of history and human nature, manifested by the average cocker spaniel, or, when pressed, can think his way out of a wet paper bag.

"I Can be Smart When I have to be"
by A.X. Perez
A couple of weeks ago reports began surfacing that human intelligence has gone down since the Victorian Era, at least in Western nations (See "Were the Victorians cleverer than us? Research indicates a decline in brainpower and reflex speed" by Nick Mcdermott for example). The basic thesis of these articles. often going back to the same particular research, is that since about 1899 average IQ has gone down 14 points as determined by measuring visual reaction time. I myself thought the inability to come up with original titles was a clue, but what do I know?

Elizabeth the Useless:
Sixty Years a Rubber Stamp

by Sean Gabb
Those of us who pay attention to such things will have noticed a difference between the BBC coverage of the Golden Jubilee in 2002 and of the present Diamond Jubilee. Ten years ago, the coverage was adequate, though reluctant and even a little stiff. This time, it has been gushing and completely uncritical. There are various possible reasons for my observation. The first is that I was mistaken then and am mistaken now. I do not think this is the case, but feel obliged to mention it. The second is that Golden Jubilees are rare events, and Diamond Jubilees very rare events, and that extreme rarity justifies a setting aside of republican scruples. The third is that the BBC was taken by surprise in 2002 by the scale of public enthusiasm, and does not wish to be caught out again. The fourth is that, while not particularly conservative on main issues, we do now have a Conservative Government, and this is headed by a cousin of Her Majesty. There may be many other reasons.

Neale's Weekly Gun Rant Volume 13
by Neale Osborn
Holy shit! This shot is amazing. Watch the video. (great choice of background music, too!) I want him on MY side WTSHTF. Most here know by now that I am not a fan of the NRA because it has compromised too often, and actually written more gun banning bills than anyone else (since the NFA '34, in fact, which they sponsored and helped write). But you gotta love this kid, and the response his little act of grade school hooliganry received....

EDITORIAL MATTERS

I have had a hard week, my wife is ill and I have been taking care of her. She is not fully recovered yet, but is better than she was and improving some every day. Thank you all who sent "get well"s.

There has been some sort of flap about privacy, or the lack of privacy, or The Powers That Be not having any respect for privacy. I have not been able to pay much attention to this, but not having respect for our privacy sounds like a hanging offence to me.

It is about time for this (and more of this!):

Oppose the Second Amendment... Pay The Price
by Dave Dolbee
They say all politics are local. Perhaps that is still true, but if you asked Colorado's Senate president, John Morse, he may tell you otherwise. That's likely because he could soon make Colorado political history—by being the first lawmaker in the state to be recalled. Donations to support his recall have come from much more than simply local advocates. In fact, they have been attributed to every corner of the nation, from Washington D.C. to Alaska.
