The Elephant in the Parlor
by L. Neil Smith
Somebody has to say it. Everybody has been dancing around it nervously
for weeks, each and every one of them desperately afraid of ... what? I don't know exactly
what: the plain truth, I guess, political and historical. We all speak so easily about the
highly abstract reasons for respecting the Second Amendment—to keep an overly ambitious
(but hypothetical) government in check. How? Through the ability to put great, big .69
caliber holes right through the pretty red coats of King George's Imperial Stormtroopers.
This, however, as the slimy and disgusting predatory left is so fond of constantly reminding
us, is no longer the Eighteenth century. How true. The coats in question are no longer red,
they're fashionable camouflage. And the bullets through them are not .69 caliber, they're .22s.
Many Paths, Same Goal
by Sarah A. Hoyt
So tonight—phone—had an interesting conversation with Bill Reader.
He's not a troll, and since we are friends he wouldn't come to my blog to call me names, but
he was making many of the objections made here over the weekend to the idea of working to
take over the GOP.
How the Government Robs Poor People
by Geoffrey Pike
A recent CNN investigation uncovered some rather disturbing practices by
collection agencies... These debt collectors are going after people and making big profits by
tacking on huge fees on top of the debts already owed. So how do these debt collectors get away
with such a practice? Wouldn't the government have some laws to protect people? Well, there are
consumer protection laws to protect against overly aggressive debt collectors. But the problem
here is that these collection agencies are actually doing work for the government.
Fact and Fiction: The Trouble with Historical Novels
by Richard Blake
If you describe anything as "the worst thing that can happen," it probably
isn't. Whatever you care to imagine, there's usually something worse. But one of the worst
things that can happen to an historical novelist is to have someone creep up to you with a
smirk on his face, and tell you that some fact in your latest masterpiece is bad history. For
me, it's certainly worse than just being told the novel is useless. I've always been sheltered
from general criticism behind an impenetrable wall of vanity. I'm a genius. Anyone who says
otherwise can only be intellectually or morally defective. Tell me, though, I've got my facts
wrong, and I may run screaming from the room.
American Sniper: A Movie Review
by Sean Gangol
For those who haven't been keeping up with the current cinema, American
Sniper is a movie directed by Clint Eastwood and has received several Oscar nominations,
including Best Picture. It has also picked up 300 million dollars at the box office, along
with a certain amount of controversy (mostly by those on the left).
Making Liberty Go Viral
by J. Neil Schulman
In the 1970′s, as a young radical-libertarian fiction writer, I had
the thought: What If—instead of setting the struggle for liberty in the past, or on
another world, or in a parallel dimension or alternate timeline or post-apocalyptic
future—I played that story on streets barely changed from ones outside my own window?
Neale's Gun Rant for 3-8-2015
by Neale Osborn
Mama Liberty is under the weather this week, so I chose an article
from a young lady I believe Mama would take a shine to for our opening segment this
week. Dinnae Fash, lads and lasses, Mama will return as soon as she's up to it. Now,
I've always considered a woman voting for gun control to be like a Jew voting for the
American Nazi Party, or a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders—just plain stupid.
But I never considered why they should oppose Concealed Carry Only states, and should
demand open carry. Oh, don't get me wrong, I don't consider ANY law that restricts my,
your, her, or anyone else's right to carry ANY weapons, open or concealed, any where,
any time, without being required to beg permission from ANY elected official OR
bureaucrat (other than on posted PRIVATE property, of course) to be Constitutional.
But I never considered this side of the discussion.
