From Boston Replies to Molôn Labé! Review:
Most libertarians are highly intellectual... to a fault. When they finally choose to get rugged and grow some ferocity -- when they actually become armed and deadly foes to tyranny -- THEN the freedom movement will finally see some real progress. But not a moment before. No oppression was ever overthrown by a bunch of readers and philosophers. Liberty is usually dirty and bloody work, and if we don't have the option of providing our masters with a real fight, then they will perennially call our wussy bluff.

Robin Williams touched on this when he ridiculed the unarmed English bobbies: "Stop! Or, I'll stay 'Stop!' again!"

# The Onion - Voice Of God Revealed To Be Cheney On Intercom - satire. Bushnev's messages from "God" are actually Dick Cheney over the intercom. Hehe. [root]

Telephone logs recorded by the National Security Agency and obtained by Congress as part of an ongoing investigation suggest that the vice president may have used the Oval Office intercom system to address President Bush at crucial moments, giving categorical directives in a voice the president believed to be that of God.


For many, the revelation explains Bush's confusion in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

"I was very surprised by the president's slow response in New Orleans," political commentator Bill Kristol said. "The president told me that he was praying every day in his office, but had received no reply. I had no idea what he meant, but of course, it all makes sense now."

At the time of Katrina, Cheney was on a fly-fishing trip, from which he returned on Sept. 1.

# Henshawe at The Claire Files Forums - Be Afraid This Holiday Season - That's the message the Busheviks and their ilk continually send, because they can only control us if we're afraid. [clairefiles]

The New World Order is about one thing thing only. It is a prostitution deal where you get to suck on their shaft. And guess what your reward is for sucking so hard and long? You guessed it - you get to suck on it more and more and more. And then as payment for all your sucking you get the grand prize - More sucking.

# has lots of 80% frames and kits for building your own off-paper guns. So does the Tannery Shop. Both are less expensive than KT Ordnance, but I can't speak for quality, having no experience with any of them. Brownells, Numrich, and Sarco sell parts. Sarco has complete parts kits, sans frame. Of course you'll need access to a machine shop or your own Grizzly mini-mill or Dremel tool. Plus videos and jigs and specialized cutting bits (available from the links above). [google]

# Digital Blue - QX5 USB Microscope - saw this in MacWorld. LED lighted. View on your computer monitor. 10x, 60x, or 200x magnification. 640x480 resolution. 15 frames-per-second animation. Can be removed from its stand for magnification of large objects. Unfortunately, the provided software works on Microsoft Windows only, though there are Linux instructions for the older QX3 here. ThinkGeek has it for $80.
