Central New Mexico Liberty Update
- L. Neil Smith and Victor Milan to speak at the LPNM 2003 Convention
and Bubonicon - HELP NEEDED
L. Neil Smith and Victor Milan, both Prometheus Award-winning libertarian science-fiction writers, are slated to speak at the 2003 LPNM State Convention. Victor's expenses are taken care of. However, I need to pay Neil's expenses plus honorarium for him to come down to Albuquerque. This will total out to $1500 for the three-day convention, and will cover lodging, gas, meals, etc., for Neil, his wife Cathy, and daughter Rylla. I can't swing it alone - at the same time, I don't like asking for money, but I'm willing to swallow my pride on this, as Neil and Vic are such good speakers and writers.
ALSO, Neil is slated to speak, give a reading from a work in progress, etc., at New Mexico's big science-fiction convention, Bubonicon [22-24 August 2003]. Again, I'll need help paying for Neil's expenses and honorarium - amounting to the same $1500 as needed for the LPNM 2003 convention.

Bring the troops home - Send the Busheviks instead - along with the
F-Troop, DEA and IRS.
(Remember that immediately after the events of 11 Sept 2001 (some call it "9-11"), the Bushevik "conservatives" were up in arms that the Air Force didn't have F-16's and F-15's ready to intercept and shoot down the hijacked airliners. At the same time, they were also complaining that "airport security" wasn't "tight enough."
So when it comes down to brass tacks, the Busheviks would rather shoot down a plane with 90-100 people on board who haven't hurt anyone else on the plane - turning them into 600-mph hamburger as their bodies are shredded by the explosion of an air-to-air missile and/or 20-mm or 30-mm cannon-fire - rather than let those same people carry the most effective means of self-defense onto the aircraft.
So much for their support of the Second Amendment. Now they want to send your kids off to fight their war for them. If they're so hot to trot for a war, when do they draw their M-16's, web gear, etc., and ship out?)
