Shannon Mccaffrey of Knight Ridder via The (Charleston) Post and Courier - In surprise move, Bush backs renewal of assault weapons ban - fascist bastard! Sierra Times has a copy of this article here. Free Republic discussion here. My post on that thread is here: [smith2004]
I haven't visited Free Republic in a while. It used to actually support a free republic, a very important part of which is the uninfringed individual right to keep and bear arms. But I read here a bunch of so-called Freepers actually supporting the "assault" weapons ban or saying that it's not worth Bush'es political capital to allow this Clinton-era excrement to sunset.

I guess Free Republic has become watered down with fair weather Patriots. Too bad.

"Reread that pesky first clause of the Second Amendment. It doesn't say what any of us thought it said. What it says is that infringing the right of the people to keep and bear arms is treason. What else do you call an act that endangers "the security of a free state"? And if it's treason, then it's punishable by death. I suggest due process, speedy trials, and public hangings." -- L. Neil Smith

Yahoo News - US troops kill merchant defending shop against looters - can't have that. Not in a "liberated" country. [smith2004]

William Stone, III at The Libertarian Enterprise - I Wish I Were an Iraqi - a dissembling, point by point, of Bushnev's promises to the Iraqi people. He promises things to the Iraqis, while doing the opposite here at home. [tle]

"Free to travel ... "

Again, by applying this concept to the United States, Bush would need to tear the Federal Rape Centers--sorry, "airport security checkpoints"--out of all the airports in America.

But then, he was the one who installed the Federal Rape Centers in the first place. Under his regime, airport security was transformed from a pointless, Unconstitutional barrier to free travel into Federally-sanctioned groping centers. Our wives, sisters, and mothers are subjected to pointless sexual abuses every day, sexual abuses that Bush clearly approves of.


"I assure every citizen of Iraq: your nation will soon be free."

With this glowing view of the future, I can only wish I were an Iraqi. No doubt the Iraqis will learn the lesson of American history: that the way to tell when a politician is lying is when his lips are moving.

Manuel Miles at The Libertarian Enterprise - Now that the Genie is Out of the Bottle ... - now that GW has knocked over a tin pot dictator, let's see how well his occupation army does with the ensuing Islamic jihad. [tle]

Anyway, the really fascinating stage is about to begin; the orchestra has only tuned up; Islam has not yet begun to fight; phrase it however you will, just stay out of tall buildings in the USA for the next fifty years or so.

Anthony Gregory at The Libertarian Enterprise - An Anniversary That We Must Never Forget - next Saturday, April 19, is the tenth anniversary of the mass murder of the Branch Davidians at Waco, Texas. Mr. Gregory gives a short summary and answers those who still think that this crime against humanity was somehow justified. Quite a bit tamer than my Waco Justice idea.

Rick Triplett at The Libertarian Enterprise - America's Close Call With Educational Disaster - a bit of satire concerning Amerikan Edukation. [tle]
