“Stuart Caesar likes to hunt in the wilderness of upstate Pennsylvania….
“”Deer and elk make a bellowing noise. I know what that sounds like. But this is a scream. It’s definitely not an animal. If it is human, what is someone doing in the middle of a mountain, screaming?…””

Please scroll down to see this article. “WCG” refers to the “Worldwide Church of God”. Since the Worldwide Church of God has changed so much, this advice would now be more appropriate for cultish splinter groups of the WCG, or for other destructive cults.
“What is central to the WCG member’s problems (his psychological pain, social dysfunction, career derailment, family stress, and very likely his poverty) is not what days he worships on, what foods he avoids, what clothes he wears, or what holidays he prefers not to observe. What is central to the WCG member’s problems is his having been psychologically coerced and subtly duped into a system of controlled behavior that encompasses the four key cult characteristics described in footnote number two: (1) isolation, (2) nonthinking, (3) absolute obedience, and (4) giving everything…”

Crossing the threshold
While we’re all fretting over the Patriot Act, John Ashcroft’s Justice Department is after much bigger game
Harvey A. Silverglate and Carl Takei, bostonphoenix.com, March 5-11, 2004
“Without habeas corpus, there is nothing to prevent the executive from locking a person up without charge or lawful justification, never to be heard from again. Known appropriately in English history as the “Great Writ,” habeas corpus is the brilliant light that protects Americans from the gulag…”
“…Unless the Supreme Court rejects the DOJ’s arguments in these three cases, the department will have effectively emasculated the Great Writ… Ashcroft will accomplish indirectly what Sensenbrenner warned him against trying directly in the Patriot Act…”
“…For the defendant who is offered a plea bargain, the implicit choice is thus no longer between a plea bargain and a public criminal trial in accordance with the Bill of Rights, but rather between a plea bargain and the legal black hole of indefinite detention…”

Some Reflections on the Olympics
Murray N. Rothbard, from The Irrepressible Rothbard, Lewrockwell.com, May 1994
“…One of the worst things about left-liberalism is its insistence on politicizing all of life, and the chauvinist hype is one aspect of the politicization….”
“…The feminist slogan, “the personal is the political,” sums up much of what conservatives and libertarians should be dedicated to combat and crush…”
About Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan. The difference is character.
I could not dig: I dared not rob:
Therefore I lied to please the mob.
Now all my lies are proved untrue
And I must face the men I slew.
What tale shall serve me here among
Mine angry and defrauded young?
