The only reason we have plane and subway and
shoe bombers in America is because America
seems like a country in dire need of a good
plane, subway, or shoe bombing to foreigners.

Hick, It's Time To Hang Em Up
by L. Neil Smith
Enough is enough, John Hickenlooper. For more than sixty years, wherever my life has taken me, I was always proud of having been born in Colorado, and always happy to return after traveling to and living in far places. Colorado was my home.

How To Not Be a Collectivist
by Paul Bonneau
Every once in a while I get a little shock watching people condemning collectivism, at the same time unconsciously advocating another variety of collectivism, or acting in a collectivist manner. Don't they see? Do they never examine their own actions?

No Hope for Change from the Hope and Change President
by Jonathan David Morris
Barack Obama campaigned—at least the first time—on the idea of hope and change. Recently, he said, "You can't have 100 percent security and also then have 100 percent privacy and zero inconvenience. We're going to have to make some choices as a society." This sounds a lot like something his predecessor—a guy from an entirely different party—would have said to justify his actions. So so much for hope and change.

Lessons from the Libertarian-Conservative Border
by Terence James Mason
Let me begin by providing a scenario and asking four questions. They are not rhetorical, they are fundamental to this whole debate. Scenario: Assume you are confident that a conspiracy exists to kill 3,000 people—or 100 people, or even one person—in a terrorist attack, but you have no clue who the conspirators are except that they live in a certain large area. You don't have identities, so getting a warrant is out of the question. So you can track telephone calls at random—numbers dialed and locations of callers—until you find some pattern which is suggestive such a conspiracy; perhaps one number calls a suspected terrorist in Yemen, and then with the database of previous phone call information in hand, you can track other persons who were called from this number, and eventually gain enough information to obtain formal warrants, and finally conduct the physical searches necessary to stop the conspirators. Don't forget, conspiracy to commit murder is a crime, just as murder itself is. But to extract this information, you have to spend months keeping data on completely peaceful citizens—as well as people who are guilty of other crimes not related to the terrorism, and people who are guilty of sexual indiscretions, and people who are conducting legitimate billion dollar business deals, and people who are involved in drug sales, and financial fraud, and not cleaning up after their dogs while walking on public sidewalks. But your job is antiterrorism, not litter, and (possibly, though that isn't completely clear) not even drug crime.

Cutting Edge Victory
by A.X. Perez
On the 22nd of May 2013 the Texas Legislature passed HB1862, which was signed by Governor Perry on the 14th of June 2013. The bill is titled: Relating to the criminal consequences of engaging in certain conduct with respect to a switchblade knife. Making a long story short, the bill ended the ban on carrying switchblade knives that has been inflicted on the Lone Star State effective the 1st of September 2013.

Neale's Weekly Gun Rant Volume 14
by Neale Osborn
Take that you gun-grabbing Constitution-violating bastard! Colorado Senate president John Morse is facing a recall election in his district. It appears that he forgot that while he ran as a Democrat, he ran in a VERY conservative district. The petition says "his actions do not represent the wishes of the district", and according to at least one report, the recall petition has more signatures than the number of votes he received in the election. More than twice the required number of signatures have been received already. Several of his colleagues are also facing the same fate. He will be the fifth to face recall in the nation, ever. He is the first from Colorado, but not the last, for 3 more Colorado Democrats are currently facing similar petitions, which may well succeed in getting more special elections.

EDITORIAL MATTERS

Thanks to all our readers who express concern about my wife's sudden (and frightening) illness. She is now all recovered. I have requested that in the future should she have a severe life-threatening infection that she should also have a high temperature along with it so everybody has fair warning. She says she'll try.

In other news, here is a petition if you are into those things:
