Harry Belafonte Wants President Obama to Jail Dissenters December 13, 2012

[Auther's Note: Ijust sent thisto a friend who had made me aware of the absurdity you see above. As usual, I have changed her name to confuse the StaatsPolizei.]

Hey, Wilma,

I’ve been getting madder and madder (not ar you) since I read this crap you sent me about Harry Belafonte, who made millions from American capitalism and now wants Obama to put all the people who made him rich in a concentration camp. He’s either evil, senile, or impossibly stupid.

You know, I have a plan for ridding ourselves of this communist trash and his parasitic entourage perfectly legally and peacefully. The …

A LETTER ON FACEBOOK December 11, 2012

I just wrote this to a guy on a FaceBook _warrior_ site who thinks it’s too late and nothing we do can save us from the end of civilization. Having changed his name to avoid more embarrassment than he’s gotten already,here is my reply:

Dear Neville,

I don’t know who you are, but you’re like that one, inevitable character in disaster movies, on the bus, train, airplane, dirigible, or whatever, who screams “We’re all going to die!” and has to bitch-slapped by a stewardess.

I am so sick and tired of conservatives who would rather lie down and give …

To the “Gang” at JPFO: November 22, 2012

When I opened my e-mail this morning (yes, even on Thanksgiving Day), I came across a message from Ammoland.com, a site I generally find interesting. But this particular morning, I was surprised and delighted to find the following contribution from my very own favorite pro-gun organization, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.

I’ve been associated with this organization, founded by my friend, the late Aaron Zelman, for at least 15 years, and this, in my opinion, is the best outreach effort I’ve seen the group mount.The hypocrisy of Hollywood is there for …

My Favorite Beers August 11, 2012

Those who know me may be aware that one of my favorite practices is to mix the excellent Mexican beer Negra Modelo half-and-half with Clamato, a form of tomato drink sweetened with the juice of clams. Yes, I know it sounds horrible. So does eating soft-boiled eggs if you try to describe it in writing.

I also like “bloody marias — Clamato and tequila. I suppose I should confess here and now that I like anchovies on my pizza, and that I’m a great fan of smoked oysters, on pizza or on yellow crackers with Miracle Whip the way my …

CATCHING UP WITH L. NEIL SMITH May 6, 2012

Dear Readers and Friends,

I regret that I haven’t sent out an update like this since February. I’ve
been too busy actually writing the stuff: two novels, parts of a screenplay,
and at least an article a week for _L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN
ENTERPRISE_. There will be those, of course, who don’t regret it at all.

I’ll also take the time to say that, if you like anything you see
here, as the old saying goes, “Don’t applaud, throw money.” There are
buttons for you to accomplish that at the bottom of each article, and it will
help …

AN OPEN LETTER TO RUSH LIMBAUGH April 5, 2012

Dear Mr. Limbaugh,

I began listening to you early in the Clinton Administration. For
years you’ve said you’re playing with half your brain tied behind your
back “just to make it fair”. For the same number of years, I’ve been
saying (admittedly to a much smaller audience), that if you ever
untied and started using the other half of your brain, you’d be a
libertarian.

That was all in fun (although I do believe it). But what I have to
tell you now is intended quite seriously. I’ve been involved in the
libertarian movement …

TESTING SOME AD COPY April 2, 2012

HOW TO FIX AMERICA

The “land of the free” is in deep trouble — the deepest trouble since the War Between the States — not just economically, but politically and in every other way. Her greatest institutions are crumbling all around us.

DOWN WITH POWER and the LP Platform February 29, 2012

An acquaintance of mine sent me, among others, an appeal to help him keep the powers that be within the Libertarian Party from cutting the national platform into even tinier shreds than it’s in now.

I grew sick to death a long time ago of trying to preserve an LP platform worthy of the name from constant attacks on it by would-be Republicans within the LP ranks who are afraid to take what libertarians really believe to the public. Since 1979, the last year I served on the committee, it has gotten progressively worse.

HOW I SPEND MY WEEKENDS February 25, 2012

My lovely and talented wife Cathy, as you may know, is an undergraduate in the archaeology program at Colorado State University, but it’s a very small department and she’s being treated more like a grad student, which in this case is a good thing.

She’s taken on a project to catalog some of the bewildering myriad of objects found in the privies of the “Vanoli block” in downtown Ouray, Colorado (the same town Ayn Rand used for Galt’s Gulch). This block is where the bars, dancehalls, and whorehouses were, all from about 1890 to 1910. The excrement is dry and no …
