Kevin Tuma - More Really Thin Books - Mr. Tuma is back after a long absence with a new political cartoon. Hehe.

Ted Nugent was on Wakin' Up with the Wolf yesterday morning. They asked people to call in and shoot their guns near their telephones. Ted and John Mulrooney guessed what they were shooting. They guessed correctly a .22 magnum, 9mm Marlin Camp Carbine (with a 30-round magazine), .45 Long Colt Single Shot Revolver, and 12 Gauge Remington Wingmaster shotgun. They had no clue on a 9x18 Makarov. Not your average morning drive-time fare.

# Kim du Toit - Amen - one of Kim's readers sent in a photo for Diane Feinstein. Hehe. [kimdutoit]

# David Carr at - Important Announcement - an April 1 announcement that will be merging with the Noam Chomsky Blog. Hehe. [samizdata]

Eternal vigilence is the price of liberty
What it says, he lives.

# Perry de Havilland at - A flowing river of lies - meanwhile, Tony Blair has decided to issue mandatory ID cards in Merry Olde England, using lies to motivate the sheep. [samizdata]

I will try my damnedest to refuse to get an ID card and I will openly declare that I do not have one when the sun rises on that evil day. I urge as many people as possible to not just resist but to do so openly when the time comes. They will try to make it very difficult to live without one so we must make the system unworkable by using whatever civil disobedience and intelligent resistance is needed. Do not cooperate with your own repression. Time to get creative, people. Time to get angry.
Identity Cards, The Steps

# Aaron Russo at - The Security of a Free State - one of the Libertarian Party presidential candidates expresses his strong support of the second amendment. Mr. Russo's campaign website is

Let me make myself clear:
- As your president, I will not ask Congress to renew or extend any of the 20,000 unconstitutional "gun control" laws which currently exist. As a matter of fact, I will veto any such renewal or extension, and I will veto any new laws passed with the intent of disarming law-abiding Americans.

- As your president, I will direct the departments of the executive branch to cease enforcement of all such laws -- and I'll direct the Solicitor General to defend that order in court, on Constitutional grounds, if Congress attempts to compel their enforcement.

- As your president, I will direct the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division to take to court any state which passes or enforces laws in any way infringing upon the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms. The Constitution clearly places these rights in the hands of the people and makes them inviolate; and my duty as president extends to enforcing the Constitutional guarantee of a republican form of government to the states, the right to keep and bear arms being an essential characteristic thereof.
"The security of a free State" is more than the security of that state's government. It's the security of the people who consent to be governed. It's their security against crime, and their security against the government itself.

Marijuana Policy Project - MPP's Rob Kampia Testifies Before House Subcommittee - from the email I got linking to this page of text and QuickTime video:

Yesterday, the Marijuana Policy Project's Rob Kampia testified at a hearing of the U.S. House subcommittee whose chairman called him "an articulate advocate for an evil position" at their last such encounter, in March 2001. The Government Reform Subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy, and Human Resources Chairman Mark Souder (R-IN) is one of the House's most vehement opponents of medical marijuana.

Testifying about "Marijuana and Medicine: The Need for a Science-Based Approach," Kampia pointed out that Souder clearly does not care about a science-based approach, as he continues to ignore all science on the subject.


The hearing was a stark contrast to Souder's last hearing on medical marijuana in 2001, when he and his Republican colleagues attacked Kampia mercilessly. This year, none of Souder's Republican colleagues showed up, and Souder himself avoided Kampia almost entirely, asking him only one question.
