The Nickel Rant
by Edgar J. Steele
March 28, 2005
Many prefer the spoken word and I have fielded many requests for sound files of my articles. While I have considered reading each of them into a sound file and posting those files on my web site, and may yet do so, the bandwidth requirement is daunting.
In a bit of a compromise, I'm running a trial with what I call "Nickel Rant" sound files (because they are precisely 5 minutes long), available for download or streaming listening from my web site: www.ConspiracyPenPal.com. I will put one of these rants up about once a week. I grant permission for anybody to use them in rebroadcast, either live or archived on the Internet, either copied or linked directly to my web site, profit and nonprofit alike, so long as they are used in their entirety. In fact, I encourage radio show hosts to use them freely. If I have fun with them and you find them useful, then I will continue them.
While I doubt Rush Limbaugh will be running my rants on his show, I certainly invite anybody else to do so. I draw the line only at their being sold or repackaged (as on CDs) and then sold. I'm trying to touch lives and make a difference here and, while I make nothing from them (at least until such unlikely time as I can figure out how to make money from this sort of thing), I absolutely refuse to allow others to profit directly from my work.
Download the first Nickel Rant directly from the following link: Inconvenient Lives (concerning Terri Shiavo in particular and euthanasia in general). This first rant's file is a bit larger than it needs to be, and for now available only in mp3 format, but I do all this on my own and am working on figuring out how to pare the size down. The advantage of the larger file size is that the sound quality is excellent, which will appeal to anybody who wishes to use it as part of their own program.
Inconvenient Lives also is available in the new "Nickel Rants" section of my main page at www.ConspiracyPenPal.com.
For now, there are no written transcripts available for "Nickel Rants."
Let me know what you think.

Donations to help with the cost of our efforts may also be mailed to Edgar Steele, PO Box 1255, Sagle, ID 83860. Until the politically incorrect begin to get a fair shake in America, and because of unfairly-applied income tax regulations, I regret that your donation cannot legally be deducted on your tax return. I must also make the following statement, to ensure that I need not declare it as income and pay tax on it and to avoid being charged with misuse of funds, for which some patriot leaders falsely have been charged and imprisoned: your donation is a gift to me, personally.
