Re: "Messing With the Constitution" by Thomas Sowell

Dear Editor and Others

Too bad I didn't submit my Farnham's Freehold review in that issue but I just had too many other things to do and it could still use some polish and another week of afterthoughts won't hurt either.

I bought and read Mr Sowell's book—Black Rednecks and White Liberals many years ago and loaned it to Bruce "The Historian". We both think it was an excellent and truthful portrayal of racial politics and offers insights needed for this country to deal with social problems in a reasonable manner. And ditto for his assessment on the progressive movement. They are always about democracy when they think they can buy their way into power with the promise of a free lunch or redress of pet issues—as long as the vote goes their way. Otherwise they want to reserve themselves the privilege to override the vote by way of executive orders, judicial decrees and most importantly delegating power to make rules to unaccountable civil servants- "experts" or "professionals" they are called.

Like the conservation people I've written about in previous articles who are the bane of the reptile hobby—as well as farmers and ranchers and others who make their living from the land. We made a terrible mistake in trusting these people with the power of kings. We need to undo that mistake and it's not going to be easy.

Please watch my new video!

I would like to introduce this 6 minute video. Please watch the whole video and keep the sound up. This video is entitled "Libertarian Revolution 2016". I wrote this message and a good friend of mine... a movie producer produced and directed it. I am very proud of this video. The message strikes me to my very soul, and I am pleased and honored to share it with you. It represents the essence of my Libertarian views regarding how we must save this nation from the damage done by the Republicans and Democrats working together over the past 100 years. Please enjoy the video!

Re: "New York Values" by L. Neil Smith

Couldn't help but think of this one when I read your article on New York Values. Jerry Doyle used to play a sound bite from the end of this skit on his show whenever someone mentioned the Big Apple:

New York City!
Get a rope.

Of course Jerry is from the Left Coast which is in many ways just as bad.

Life Under an Iron Fist

This is "long", so the "10 second sound bite crowd" may have a problem. I hope they struggle through it anyway.

Imagine the logistics involved of making a film of the end of the earth. Well, with God as producer anything is possible.

Snowpocalypse Now!

Preview of a future Norseman's Hell article. Not so much cold this time around. Just being buried—literally under what looks like a couple feet of snow that fell overnight and as of 8:00 AM Saturday morning it's still coming down!

Snowpocalypse 2016!
