‘A substantial shift in attitudes’

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

In case anyone is suffering those winter blahs, let’s start with some recent good news: The Huffington Post reports “For the first time in more than 20 years, Americans say it’s more important to protect the right to own guns than it is to control gun ownership.” A new Pew Research Poll released Dec. 10 […]

‘Our entire universe is contained in the mind and the spirit’

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

Despite a bit of predictable straying down rabbit trails (which the host admirably tolerates in preference to “over-moderating,”) an interesting discussion developed not long ago beneath the first part of her recent interview with me at Claire Wolfe’s site ( www.backwoodshome.com/blogs/ClaireWolfe/2015/01/03/ ), albeit mostly among people who of necessity (since it had only just come […]

Retail sales down, with one intriguing exception

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

America’s remaining retailers were already pretty well shell-shocked after seven years of Great Recession administered by those geniuses from Goldman Sachs. But store owners got whacked again when they totaled up retail sales for the long Thanksgiving weekend — traditional start of the Christmas shopping season — and found they were down 11 percent from […]

‘The Black Arrow’ not forgotten

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Wally Conger, a California revolutionary market anarchist who remembers Ayn Rand, Karl Hess, and Jefferson Airplane — reportedly inspired by CW’s current “Arrow” TV series — was kind enough to post a favorable review of “The Black Arrow / A Tale of the Resistance” at http://wconger.liberty.me/2014/12/08/a-well-spun-tale-of-the-resistance/?refer=libertyme , last month, finding it “an explosive, dizzying, libertarian […]

God made men and women. Colonel Colt made them equal.

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

The national media didn’t talk much about gun control as Barack Obama’s “irrelevant” opposition — the GOP that he saw no need to consult as he was forcing Obamacare down the nation’s throat — swept to a decisive victory in November. No, Democrats and their handmaidens of the press prefer to pretend our elections are […]

Talk about the hypocrite from New York City

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

It’s sort of like one of those old “Twilight Zone” episodes. What if you had a billion dollars, but you couldn’t use it to buy what you wanted? With a net worth of about $34 billion, former Wall Street banker Michael Bloomberg is reportedly the sixteenth-wealthiest person in the world. He spent about $74 million […]

How come they keep having these ‘elections,’ and nothing ever changes?

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

For the most part, participating in “judgeship” elections is pointless at best, if not outright pernicious. Your participation will be interpreted as granting your consent and approval to what amounts to a huge, unconstitutional scam. So far as I know, you can no longer become a judge in this country — with the possible exception […]

Driving the Ranchers Off the Land, Part 6 of 6

Monday, October 13th, 2014

(NOTE: a condensed version of this report appears in the Autumn, 2014 issue of “Range” magazine, on newsstands through Oct. 15.) IS IT ALL TO SAVE THE TORTOISE? The federals contend they’re doing all this to “protect the threatened desert tortoise,” though I’ve documented again and again over the years (citing such experts as Vern […]

Show us your guns, America

Monday, October 6th, 2014

In the “Good News” department, the Washington Times reported in September “More than 57,000 gun-friendly bars, eateries crop up across America.” Back in April, the owners of TBonz Steakhouse in Augusta, Georgia, “decided to be proactive when Republican Gov. Nathan Deal signed into law one of the most comprehensive pro-gun bills in the country,” the […]

Driving the Ranchers Off the Land, Part 5 of 6

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

(NOTE: a condensed version of this report appears in the Autumn, 2014 issue of “Range” magazine, on newsstands now.) WHAT’S ‘THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF GRAZING’? With the BLM having turned tail on April 12, has Bundy won -– as his supporters hope and believe — or will the federals just lick their wounds before coming […]
