KINDLE            PAPERBACK       ePUB

What David Lloyd Sutton called a "deliciously irreverent collection" of insightful articles in his review for the San Francisco Book Review proves that political, social and cultural opinionizing can be both fun-provoking and thought-provoking at once.

 

Want to understand economics? Don't study Keynes or Hayek, study Scrooge McDuck. Want to know how government causes rather than curbs chaos? Don't ask your officious office-holder, ask your neighbor. Want to know how nanny state political correctness really works? Don't research the past, research the future. Want to read a book review review? (That's not a typo). Don't read those cranky conventional critics, read a Reed Review. Want to understand the real meaning of "bipartisans?" Don't consult your dictionary, consult Selected Salvos: "If we Democrats and Republicans work together to divvy up taxpayer booty we can both buy partisans."

 

This is "Fun&Freedom" stuff stuffed into twenty articles and a mere 76 pages for some quick reads, quick insights and quick laughs.

State of the Police State 2014

Commentary The AP ran a cop's-eye-view article of the Eric Garner chokehold killing. It's a "poor cop" victimization piece that can easily be ripped apart nearly line by line. The plain text below comes from the article; bold text is the response...

 

Non-libertarian gets stuck in a Buffalo snowdrift

Luckily for North Texas the snowfalls that find their way into the Metroplex are nowhere near as severe as the blizzards that annually engulf Buffalo, New York. Michael I. Niman isn't confused about that, but when he channels "the tired old meme, 'there aren't any atheists in foxholes'" and comes up with a tired new meme "there aren't any libertarians in a Buffalo Blizzard" he buries his brain in a frozen patch of yellow snow...

 

 

Internet freedom and the reality of Net Neutrality

People in favor of "Net Neutrality" for the Internet are afraid that Big Corporations will destroy the Internet as we know it so they want Big Government to control it. What these people never seem to understand is that Big Government and Big Corporatists wallow in the same mudhole together...

 

 

Dallas' Curry Taylor makes 'Hottest Libertarian Men' list

News North Texas' own Curry Taylor, the reigning Vice Chair of the Dallas County Libertarian Party, has been selected as a member of a new "Hottest Libertarian Men" list.

 

 

Interview: Libertarian Novelist Daiell talks 'Roundheel to Revolutionary'

Known well to North Texas libertarians, Jeff Daiell is a longtime libertarian activist, writer, frequent speaker, two-time Libertarian Party of Texas candidate for Governor .... He is also the author of a new novel, From Roundheel To Revolutionary ...

A Libertarian fireplace for a libertarian Santa visit?

Every libertarian should be ecstatic over the "Libertarian Indoor Ventless Electric Wall Fireplace." This "Libertarian" item is currently available at various venues like Amazon, Walmart and Sears. It comes in assorted colors such as white, dark walnut and espresso (who knew espresso was a color)...

 

 

Ferguson, racism, race-baiting and 'police-ism'

Commentary If you're a hammer, as the old saying goes, everything looks like a nail that must be hammered down even when it isn't a nail. To black people subjected to police harassment and brutality everything looks like racism that must be hammered down even when it isn't racism.

 

 

Chemtrails, Zen tales and the libertarian Zero Aggression Principle

Everyone, we are told, knows that chemtrails, those white fluffy-looking streaks crisscrossing the skies of our world, are not vapor trails left by the Jet engines of airplanes; they're really a secret conspiracy by our One World rulers to poison every human being on the planet by deliberately spraying us with chemical or biological agents for undisclosed nefarious purposes...

 

 

Interview: A big freakin' libertarian's Big Freakin' Book

Tom Knapp's blog bio identifies him this way: "Thomas L. Knapp, aka KN@PPSTER, is Senior News Analyst at the Center for a Stateless Society, letters editor at Antiwar.com and publisher of Rational Review News Digest. He lives in Gainesville, Florida." Now he's produced Kn@ppster's Big Freakin' Book of Stuff...

 

 

Reducing 'low level' crimes won't reduce prison populations

California's Prop 47, which passed during the 2014 midterm elections, is designed to reduce penalties for "lower-level crimes" such as "shoplifting, forgery, fraud, petty theft, and possession of small amounts of drugs including cocaine and heroin..."

RECENT EXAMINER READER REMARKS:

Your work keeps getting better and better.  Keep it up!

This writer, Garry Reed, is a prolific Libertarian who has taught me so much. He is an analytical thinker and a sparky writer.

I love your stuff.  Please keep writing.

Your articles are an inspiration. I am so glad you find the time to write them, I will always find the time to read them.

Thanks for the great reporting. I am a lifetime registered Republican. I am very angry with all the politicians. I have voted republican all my life, but things are really changing now. The more I read your articles and listen to the media, the more I think I'm a Libertarian. I also consider myself a Conservative and an Independent.

Damn you, Garry! I'm too busy as it is, and now I have to stop and read your posts whenever they show up, because they are just that good. Hopefully lots of people who aren't already members of the choir are reading these too!
