Debunking the Daily Kos anti-libertarian bunkum
When a writer like"arendt"at Daily Kos gets the most fundamental premises of his nearly 3,000-word harangue-plus-addendum against libertarianism so utterly wrong you know there's no sense reading all the way to the end since conclusions based on false premises are virtually guaranteed to be just as false.
His article is about the rejection of"our techno-libertarian overlords."He identifies them in hisFirst False Premiseboth in the article's title and in his commentary:"We need to stop the billionaire elitist radicals who want to replace democracy with corporate feudalism and techno-elitist domination."
Libertarians want to replace democracy since democracy is just a codified system of mob rule, but they want to replace it with a free society, not with"corporate feudalism"and certainly not with domination,"techno-elitist"or otherwise, since that wouldn't be freedom.
Second False Premise:"I have never read something as repulsive as the pontifications of the community of extreme techno-libertarians funded by uber-libertarian billionaire Peter Thiel. It is Charles Stross without the last shred of humanity."

Chicken salad economics and the ghettoization of America
But taxes, libertarians know, are the skim the"civilized"ruling classes take from the ruled classes to maintain their ostentatious lifestyles and to keep the"uncivilized lower classes"in their place. Taxes, and the convoluted web of laws, licensing, certifications, codes, ordinances, regulations, restrictions and other endlessly insurmountable governmental hurdles guarantee that the poverty-stricken remain poverty-stricken.

Ferguson, racism, race-baiting and'police-ism'
If you're a hammer, as the old saying goes, everything looks like a nail that must be hammered down– even when it isn't a nail. To black people subjected to police harassment and brutality everything looks like racism that must be hammered down– even when it isn't racism.
All libertarians, includingblack libertarians, understand this. Real racism is about people disabusing people because of their race. But when it comes to police abuse racism is just part of an even greater problem: police-ism. All across America cops harass and brutalize black and white, male and female, young and old, criminals and innocents alike.

Voluntaryists take on the tasteless TSA tormentors
Jaime Sherman, the mastermind behind the Voluntaryist ventures, has been busily storyboarding what he's calling his cartooning crew's"most daring adventure yet!"-"Voluntaryists VS. the TSA!"His current Flash Mob money-raising movement just commenced and he fancies financial favors from his faithful fans!
You know who the enemy is. The Transportation Security Administration, The Traveler's Stress Aggravators, The Touchy-Squeezy Abusers, staffed by a raft of Gratuitous Gropers, Feckless Feelers, Mocking Molesters, Supercilious Searchers and Offensive Fondlers.

Reducing'low level'crimes won't reduce prison populations
California's Prop 47, which passed during the 2014 midterm elections, is designed to reduce penalties for"lower-level crimes"such as"shoplifting, forgery, fraud, petty theft, and possession of small amounts of drugs including cocaine and heroin."
TheEyewitness News articlefrom KABC Los Angeles quoted Ethan Nadelmann of the Drug Policy Alliance as saying that this shows that voters are eager to"reduce prison populations in ways that can enhance public safety."
TheUS incarceration rate isthe highest in the world because of the drug war, which imprisons virtually everyone except well-connected rich white people's kids for anything having to do with officially-designated illegal drugs. Simply reducing penalties for low, or any, level of crimes doesn't address the fundamental question of what is or isn't a crime.

Race-baiters turn racist after midterm elections
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Sorry Dr. King, but many of the people, like numerous African-Americans and white liberal supporters who typically called you their hero, have failed to live up to your Dream.
Policy& Issues Examiner Joe Newbyreported how people, purportedly"tolerant"and"inclusive"liberals, have exploded with racial hatred and name-calling bigotry after Republican Tim Scott became the first African-American elected to the Senate from South Carolina since Reconstruction. He was appointed in 2011 to fill Jim DeMint's spot.

Politicized climate change and the libertarian solution
"Today only a small minority of scientists challenge the mainstream conclusion that the earth is the center of the universe"– imagined quote from Medieval Catholic Pope.
In both cases above, nonconformist naysayers get attacked and marginalized. If Karl Ritter had written anything else he wouldn't be working for AP today. In short, the whole discussion about climate change isn't about science, it's about political ideology.

Police state junkies still pushing REAL ID
passport, government permission slip, public school bathroom hall pass and universal ankle bracelet all rolled into one– it was a dead and done issue.
REAL ID cards include biometric identifiers like photo and fingerprints and microchips that allow GPS stalking like missing dogs and spawning salmon.
Now the Consent Chronicle is sounding the alarm once again about these power-addicted junkies and they're reactivating their"Educate the Powerful System".
Apparently there are too many politico-bureaucratic opportunities for career-enhancing influence peddling, political power-mongering, control-craving, and underhanded under-the-table corporate profiteering and taxpayer slush money to be had to just let it go.

How real libertarians guarantee everyone's incomes
The Cato Institute recently offered a 3,209 word essay titled"The Pragmatic Libertarian Case for a Basic Income Guarantee"via itsCato Unbound website.
It describes how"libertarians"can scramble onto the European socialist bandwagon called BIG: Basic Income Guarantee, in which government sees to it that everyone lives at the expense of everyone else through"Income Equality,"the coercive redistribution of all non-ruling class people's money.

History buffs welcome; trolls need not apply
Some people are history. Some people are buff. Some people are history buffs.
If you're the latter and you think American history has been propagandized with a liberal/progressive bias there's not really an app for that but there is a Google+ site for that.

America's Game of Thrones
American politics is a real life Game of Thrones orchestrated by a cryptic self-serving ruling class of politicians, corporatists and bankster kingmakers. It's why libertarians loathe them all.
Based on evidence from both the Left and Right media, Hillary Clinton is a stone cold psychopath who seeks personal power above all else.
Her fellow narcissistic collaborator, Bill Clinton, is a master rationalizer driven by his own desires for power, wealth and ego gratification.
Together they are codependent enablers.

Anti-libertarian'grownups'embrace political coercion, intimidation and fraud

Americans have more in common with libertarians than government
One of the great things about mousing randomly around in the libertariansphere is the serendipitous relational discoveries that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Take, for example, aDennis Trainor Jr. article/videoin which he disses capital L Libertarians for not being capital O Objectivists even as he admits that they have more in common than not.

Edward Snowden patriot or traitor? How about'Hero?'
June 5 was the one year anniversary of Edward Snowden's public outing of the NSA spying into every minute particle of our personal lives.
Yet a year later people are still debating whether Snowden should be regarded as a patriot or a traitor.
So let's make the issue as starkly clear as possible.
If a friend tells you that your lying, backstabbing, hypocritical, deceitful spouse is cheating on you do you call your friend a traitor and then go crawling back to your unfaithful spouse?

Defending Alec Baldwin, a rare libertarian experience
The mercurial-mouthed actor Alec Baldwin was arrested recently for something that only libertarians would defend him for.
Copshandcuffed and took him into custodyfor committing the clearly victimless crimes of bicycling in the wrong direction on a New York City street and for failing to have identification on his person.
In a free society– which Baldwin apparently doesn't believe in as evidenced by his outspoken loudmouthing for government-imposed Obamacare and his heavy-handed denial of photog's right to film him in public– nobody would be handcuffed or arrested for improper peddling unless the cyclist was physically coercing or intimidating or clearly placing the lives and limbs of innocent people in imminent danger. The media reports report no such claims.
