Independency!—and a Thumb in the King's Eye
by L. Neil Smith
I have just been invited to attend a famous science fiction
convention next year as its Guest of Honor, and I have happily accepted. More details
about that another time soon. The point here is that I have no idea—and neither
does anybody else—whether there's even going to be a next year at least
for the land of the free and the home of the brave. That's what living in "interesting
times" is about. As I stand here writing, gun owners in the state of Connecticut are
braced for a massive, illegal physical assault on their lives, liberties, and property,
by a state government and its goons who have given up the last tattered appearances of
respect for the Bill of Rights. They want their subjects disarmed and helpless.
Twitter is Banned in Turkey
by Tiffiniy Cheng
Yesterday, the government of Turkey blocked Twitter entirely,
cutting off 10 million people from the social network that has been essential in
the organizing of protests and the dissemination of information. Last night, we
received this email from our contact in Turkey, from Alternatif Bilism, the group
of academics and activists in who we are working with to fight the censorship....
Are You Ready for War?
by Paul Bonneau
Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring, during the Nuremberg Trials, had this
exchange with a biographer: Göring: "Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would
some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out
of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want
war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That
is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy
and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a
fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship."

Neale's Weekly Gun Rant Volume 3-23-2014
by Neale Osborn
I just wonder why the guns were still on premises. from the article...
In a previous post, Hall complained, "Well Connecticut state police are on their way to
seize all of my firearms... what the fuck happened to my 2nd amendment.... this is
unjustified.... and this is no bullshit either.... they are really on their way with a
court order for me to hand over my firearms!" MY response would be "I shipped them to
an out of state relative." This poor guy decides to straighten out his life and get
sober. NOW the state confiscates his guns.
Oh the Stupidity
by L. Neil Smith
I saw a headline the other day claiming that eight out of ten
Americans believe that there is inevitably going to be another Holocaust. The headline
was based on a poll reported by Joseph Fara's World Net Daily, and was conducted
on behalf of author Joel C. Rosenberg. I always take anything I read on WND with
a grain or two of salt, all the more because I have a couple of highly respected friends
who once worked there. I am uncertain whether I ever met Joel C. Rosenberg. In the 80s
or 90s, I think, I had a conversation with someone named Joel Rosenberg that only managed
to convince me he was a waste of space and oxygen. Not unlike Joseph Fara.
