Your humble webmaster has had a few disagreements with "gubmint" from time to time, and with the way "justice" is administered by America's intellectually corrupt and morally bankrupt judiciaries. These pamphlets, titled "Common Sense" in honor of Thomas Paine, were written as an integral part of those Culture War struggles. I posted them on this website, in part, to chronicle those struggles. It is hoped the reader will find them interesting. Perhaps even more importantly, it is hoped they will serve as inspiration and a template for how to go about engaging in the time-honored art of political pampheteering.
I you read the pamphlets, you will (of course) notice what are euphemistically referred to as "typos". In other words, mistakes in editing. That's the unique thing about editing: if you read the document once and there are no errors, you have done an adequate job of editing. On the other hand, if you have read the document a hundred times and errors still remain, you have not done a good enough job of editing. With editing, the amount of effort is pretty much irrelevant. It's the result that matters. There are few things more momentarily frustrating than getting a pile of pamphlets back from the printer and discover error/s you hadn't notice prior to the printing.
These Common Sense pamphlets are in Portable Document Format (PDF). If you don't already have Adobe Reader, you can DOWNLOAD IT HERE so you can read the pamphlets. If you are using the Mozilla Firefox browser, there is a very cool PDF reader called Foxit which you can DOWNLOAD HERE. I use both Mozilla Firefox and Foxit, and have noticed that PDF documents open noticeably faster in Foxit.ShareThis
