Your newsletter looks good, but I am cynical enough to believe that even if everyone on earth were to read it or have it read to them in the language of their birth that less than one percent would care. Those that live within the geographical boundaries of the USA would prefer security to liberty not realizing that they and their offspring are doomed to have neither. Those that are living outside the USA that care will see the trend as a sign that the USA is becoming its own worst enemy, again.
Look at what happened in history and you will see it happening again. During WW2 the USA fought to eliminate fascism and the USA ended up a fascist government. During the Cold War the USA fought to eliminate socialism and the USA ended up a socialist government. It would seem that the USA's most successful tactic is to be better at whatever is attacking it. The trend continues as terrorists attack the USA. The signs are clear that the government is becoming terrorist in nature.
Being a pessimist has only one reward. A pessimist can be pleasantly surprised. An optimist can only be disappointed.

Dear Mr. Aurelius,
I just read a copy of your fine publication that a friend in the next cell lent me. I must say, I am impressed. I would appreciate being included on your mailing list. I would also like to know where I can write to get on some other mailing lists for similar newsletters etc. I do not know if you can help me with that, but it would be appreciated. Thank you for your time, and a fine newsletter.
— Brian; Sterling, ColoradoPS. You may be interested to know that the Colorado Revised Statutes contain some similar laws to the 18USC2385 that you wrote about in Jan '02. See Title 16 under Crimes of Loyalty if you are interested.
Crimes of Loyalty? I guess it's as bad as I thought it was.
The following was hand-written on the outside of Brian's envelope. "Freedom is a sure possession of only those who are strong enough to keep it."
Here are some addresses. I don't necessarily endorse everything presented in these publications. However, I think that they're interesting. The prices that I quoted came from the issues that I had on hand, and might not be current. Also, I can't guarantee that the publications are still available.

Greetings comrade. I recently received your latest issue of the Frontiersman. Very nice I must say, and once again I'm compelled to write and stress my appreciation of your sending me the Frontiersman. I really enjoy the content, always inspiring to say the least....

Happy New Year!
[The following statement was in response to my article Criminal Procedure, January 2002.] I thought since US revolt against Brits that some where in the Constitution was the wording saying we can overthrow an unjust Government ............ Thanks for setting me straight on that one. [Such wording exists in the Declaration of Independence but not in the U.S. constitution.]
following statement was in response to my comment
"Let's not call the recent nonsense in Afghanistan a war. It wasn't
a war. It was target practice, a chance for U.S. government thugs
to test weapons systems on live targets, under safe conditions.".....
Note: I didn't insert the gun symbol in her response. She did.]
agree - fcking
overkill — just to avoid US deaths. A surgical cut was needed — not
grind into hamburger!. Besides — it's all for oil anyway — proposed
pipelines were held up by taliban..................HEY! war was never
[The following statement was in response to Math Test For Today's Gang Members.]
U forgot 1:
If Leroy is robbing the 7-11 at 2 AM & he is running 9 mph and the cop car 2 blocks away is going 45 mph., how many years in Leavenworth will Leroy get?
(trick Q: Leroy is not in the Armed Forces) hehehehehe
How about instead of a IQ test make up a BS test for double talking mealy-mouthed- politicians?
If President Buch Jr. used the word 'justice' for the word 'revenge' & changed hated symbol: 'drug' into 'terrorist' — how many US sheep, err citizens...... will bleat in tune with the military industrial complex?
(used Buch Jr. as al Jeezra does)
BTW what U think of 'Taliban Walker'?
I take most Government announcements as opposites of the truth: Touting J.Walker as Taliban trash — means to me he was a undercover agent & needed to extradite him with Chaff in the air. Beside I heard when the 2 cia ops ordered the tying up of 200 POW's — the POW's thought they were to b executed and sparked the bloodiest battle of the Afgha conflict.
Also heard that on Nov. 11 Kandahar airport bombing was stopped and Taliban & AlQeada were allowed flight. The so called search for Ossama is just more field practice for the armed forces. The suicide stunt on India's parliament was AlQeada's: to divert Pakistan's attention from Afgha to other side of country.
Here's a question for you. What if they have already captured, killed, and cremated Osama bin Laden, and just didn't tell us? Then, they could keep hunting him forever.

... I am working my "Community Service" now working straight through the holidays. Funny, I think I was doing a better "community service" when I was breaking the law in the first place.

... Thank you for your "newsletter". I enjoy (it fortifies me) all the stuff about rights & gov't. The rest I could do without. I may not have confessed to you, but I am a feminist, and your quasi-misogynist writings, even when they're said by Buck Hunter, never please or entertain me. Your better ideas deserve a wider forum — republishing in a subscriber's own newsletter is not enough. If you don't get someone to put you permanently (with archives) on the web, your words will disappear. I can't afford to preserve your newsletters (lack of space), but someone ought to. Because I can't be your broadcaster, I'm no good to the furthering of your ideas. Because you have no broadcaster, I think your considerable efforts are wasted. I don't need your words for my own battle against the military-industrial complex. Reluctantly I ask that you stop sending me the Frontiersman. If you go online (or your words do), let me know.

My newsletter has been available on my website for years. Use the website address that is published at the bottom of every page of every issue, and follow the links.
I don't care if you are a feminist. You have as much right to your opinion as I do to mine. However, neither you nor any other feminist should be able to enact repressive rules that compel me to behave as if I were a feminist when I'm not, or to punish me if I fail to behave according to your politically correct feminist expectations. I resent having my attitude forcibly "corrected" for no better reason than that the self-righteous reformers in the feminist movement believe that their attitude is more sacred than mine. I don't want to work in a sexually integrated workplace. If that causes you to think of me as a quasi-misogynist, then so be it. If you want to work in a sexually integrated workplace, go ahead. Every time some woman uses her sexuality to manipulate you, then you can pretend that she's just one of the guys. Every time you get caught ogling, flirting, or telling an "inappropriate" joke, they can send you to "sensitivity and diversity" training, to be brainwashed. When you're accused of sexual harassment (where you're guilty until proven innocent), then they can fire you and sue the company. Suit yourself. I don't want any part of it.
The feminists are one of the more repressive movements in this country. They promote arrogance, hypocrisy, intolerance, and insensitivity. They've done more than any other group (except maybe the "terrorists") to increase the intrusive and repressive powers of the U.S. government. That is why I oppose them.
