Pat Oliphant at Marc Brands Liberty - Oh, Horrors!! - cartoon commentary on Dick Cheney's take on Janet's breast. Hehe. [smith2004]

# I've gotten hammered with "janet's breast" searches. Over 2000 of them so far. My February 2 page entitled "Janet's Breast" is the eighth Google hit for a search for "janet's breast" or "janet breast".

# Carl Bussjaeger at The Price of Liberty - Free Hunter! A Practical Call for Letters - some ideas for letter-writing to the prosecutor (Robert P. DeSanto) and judge (Jeffrey L. Runyan) who, barring a plea bargain, will be trying Jeff Jordan on felony concealed weapon charges starting on Thursday, May 27, 2004, at 8:00am in the Ashland Ohio County Courthouse. [price]

Robert P. Desanto
307 Orange Street
Ashland, OH 44805

Judge Jeffrey L. Runyan
Ashland County Common Pleas Court
142 West Second Street
Ashland, OH 44805.2101
Mr. Bussjaeger also recommends sending copies to Russ Kent at the Mannsfield News Journal.
Mansfield News Journal
70 West Fourth Street
Mansfield, OH 44902
I'll wait until a calmer day to write my letter, since the only message I really want to send to the prosecutor and judge would arrive at about 2500 feet per second, and it will be hard to hide that in my writing.

# Andy Pelosi of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence at the Albany Times Union - More accountability needed for handguns - Mr. Pelosi likes New York Governor Pataki's proposal to increase handgun permit fees and to force permit holders to renew their currently life-time permits every five years. I sent the following letter to the editor:

The TU published on February 5 a letter from Andy Pelosi of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence supporting Governor Pataki's proposed fee increases and five-year renewal period for handgun permits. This proposal stinks. New York's pistol permit holders already jump through incredible hoops to prove their competence to exercise what is supposed to be an inalienable right. We need fewer, not more, roadblocks in the way of people using effective tools to defend themselves and their families.

New York's legislature may not legally regulate handguns or any other arms. The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution mandates that "the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." Sadly, this restriction on what government is allowed to do has never been enforced. It's way past time to do so. To quote L. Neil Smith, "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." Try Pataki and Schumer first.

# GeekWithA.45 - Escape From New Jersey - the geek and his family have won the bid on a house and plan to move to Delaware County, Pennsylvania.

# Thomas J. DiLorenzo at LewRockwell.com - Be Patriotic: Don't Vote - haven't decided if I'll take Mr. DiLorenzo's advice in the next presidential election. I might. Even if I do vote, it won't be for Bush or any of his democrat challengers. [lew]

That's why it is unpatriotic to vote. Being patriotic in America means being devoted to the Constitution, if not the natural rights philosophy that motivated much of it. Since neither of the major political parties has any interest whatsoever in enforcing the constitutional limitations on the state, they are all traitors to the Constitution (with one lone exception, Congressman Ron Paul).

Anyone who supports them is also behaving in a traitorous manner. That is, anyone who votes for any of them. Voting only allows these traitors to the Constitution to proclaim that "the people have spoken" and "I am your president," or congressman, senator, governor, or whatever. Their legitimacy rests solely on their ability to make this claim.

# Steve Haydow at LewRockwell.com - Soviet-Style Legislation Proposed for the UK - commentary on British Home Secretary David Blunkett's proposals to virtually eliminate trial by jury in the nation of its founding. [lew]

The fact that these kinds of proposals are even considered, shows how this government is set on using this "terrorist" opportunity" to extend its powers and change the basis upon which justice is administered in Great Britain. While we have moved away from the old totalitarianism of the eastern block and the USSR, the new brand of totalitarianism is far more dangerous. This is non-revolutionary socialism/statism. It uses the process of law and the political process to gradually manoeuvre its changes into the system and radically re-shape the social order. The dismantling of the House of Lords was a step in the process and doubtless there will be more.

Even the left-leaning Guardian noticed this: "Not that any of what the home secretary is suggesting is original. It used to be standard procedure in the communist regimes of eastern Europe and was copied by, amongst others, Saddam Hussein in Iraq. Whenever the British press reported on one of these trials the word 'show' invariably appeared."

# Gun Owners of America - California Race Could Retire Notorious Gun Grabber - boot Barbara Boxer. Elect Howard Kaloogian as U.S. senator from California. Campaign donations requested. [kaba]

As a state assemblyman, Kaloogian earned a solid "A" rating from Gun Owners of California. He has fought for the gun rights of Californians for years, and I have no doubt he will continue to fight for your rights after he is elected to the U.S. Senate.

Even if you don't live in California, his election to the U.S. Senate will mean more freedom for all those who cherish the Second Amendment.

Kaloogian is, by far, the best pro-gun candidate in this primary. Millions of dollars will be spent to elect the next senator from California. Kaloogian needs your help to get his name in front of every pro-gun voter in the state.
From Mr. Kaloogian's issues page:
Second Amendment:

I believe that the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States guarantees the right of individual law-abiding Americans to own and use the firearms of their choice. I oppose any new restrictions on the right of citizens to possess firearms because there are enough new laws on the books. I believe that President Clinton's flawed and unworkable 1994 gun ban legislation, which attempted to impose restrictions on some weapons, should be allowed to expire in 2004 as scheduled. The answer to gun violence in our country is to focus on the criminal use of firearms in the commission of a crime and enforce the laws that punish those criminals.
