Eat It Every Day
by L. Neil Smith
When I get up every morning, I turn the radio on. These days it's
actually my smart phone and I "Heart" Radio. I listen mostly to a guy in Denver who has
weathered many a storm of political controversy and acrimony. He's also what Ayn Rand
called "muscle mystic" and a total asshole (he'd be the last to deny the latter) and
perhaps most disappointing, a surrender-monkey (America is doomed no matter what we
try to do). So whenever I get tired and fed up with the same old stupid mantras he
repeats over and over, and with his bullying of individuals who have called his show,
I switch to another program I discovered about a year ago.
The Best of Crony Capitalism
by A.X. Perez
El Paso, Texas has about the highest electric rates and about the
lowest electric bills in the state of Texas. This is due to our ability to get by on
swamp coolers due to low humidity and a willingness to hit off switches. Conservation
cuts our usage and bills. El Paso Electric keeps our per kilowatt bill high and keeps
asking to raise our rates on the grounds that they are not making enough profit because
we conserve. So far City Hall and the Texas Public Utility Commission have properly
called bullshit on this argument and told them no.
Neale's (combined) Gun Rant for the week(s) of 5-18-14 & 5-25-14
by Neale Osborn
Before I start this rant (actually, as I finish this rant, but
you'll see what I mean in a minute), I'd like to take a few moments to explain how
I write these things, and why I missed last weeks, and why chronologically, Mama
Liberty's SECOND contribution to this rant is at the beginning. I write these things
using a certain blog-site's article writing section, then copy it, paste it, and
send it off to various places for publication. Why? Because I like the format the
site has. But it has one HUGE fault. The whole article stays on ONE page, so the
more I write, the farther away from the Block-quote, italics, bold face, and other
use-full shit I get. in addition, I start writing NEXT week's rant about 15 minutes
after THIS week's goes out. So each time I write, I start it at the top of the page,
to keep the toolbar closer to where I'm working. This means the LAST thing I write
is the FIRST thing you see. Last week, three hours before I would normally wrap my
rant up, my computer died. Soooo, I broke out my spare. It died. Thus, I had a
complete rant, stored online, I couldn't access except with a computer that takes 23
minutes just to open an e-mail. And that's why you got no rant last week. I got my
computer back last night, and have been typing furiously for the last 24 hours (okay,
probably for 2 hours IN the last 24, but you get the drift). Ennyhoo.... That's why
the links get older the closer to the bottom you get, and that's why Mama Liberty's
"FIRST" contribution references "last week", yet that contribution is the "second"
in this rant.
