From smith2004:
"Government has four basic functions: Robbery, Rape, Slavery, Genocide. The reason for this is that government, all government, is a criminal enterprise. It has no legitimate purpose." -- Michael Bradshaw

# My iPod now has 1054 songs on 129 albums by 91 artists in 17 genres. Yippee! I still have a bunch more CDs, but I've imported the ones to which I'm mostly likely to listen. The others will come slowly as I remember them. And the iPod disk still has over 13 gigs of free space.

# Vin Suprynowicz at The Las Vegas Review-Journal - Two decades later, '1984' is all around us - last week's article, but I just read it. How the democrats would challenge republican empire building if they really believed in liberty. And the absurdity of identification cards.

# Abe Clark at The Libertarian Enterprise - What National Debt? - why the national debt, which will top $8 trillion by the end of the year and $10 trillion by the end of Bushnev's second term, should be repudiated. [tle]

But wouldn't defaulting on the national debt destroy the "full faith and credit" of the United States government? Wouldn't writing off the whole eight trillion at a single stroke of the pen make it exceedingly difficult to borrow more in the future? Of course it would, and that would be an added benefit. Not only would taxes go down right away, but it would be more difficult for politicians to tack additional spending on to future budgets. With any luck, there would never be another bill or bond issued by the U.S. Treasury.
