Let's do something about censorship. Let's bring pressure to bear in defense of the honorable Robert Spencer. What can we do to boycott or write letters to people with power who can force spineless bureacrats and gutless wimps to allow free speech in pursuit of truth.

To cave in now the "wave"...

Many American companies and organizations have voluntarily removed their own spines for fear of some type of "discrimination" or "hate" lawsuit. Will it end? No. Not until they re-insert their spines.


Under Sharia, goodby libraries

Is it possible that the ALA could be so clueless about the anti-intellectual aspect of Islam. How many shelves does a library need to display the Koran.


Rebuild the ALA

It's time to overhaul the ALA. Local libraries need to stop joining the ALA and start representing their communities. Have we forgotten the words that Thomas Jefferson penned in the Declaration of Independence? You know, the document that started the revolution? In case you have forgotten, (or were never taught them in school):

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

The ALA is a form of government- an agency created for the purpose of controlling a population. We need to use our right as citizens to alter it, and create a new organization that has a principled foundation.

By the way, this idea works for our federal government too.
