Time to abolish all rights violations, not just some
The Supremes declared that the cops must cop a search warrant from a judge before copping the blood of a drunk driving suspect.
Still under consideration at the high court, since February, is whether the state canswab our DNA without a warrantor without our explicit consent.

Sex education among the (non) libertarians
"You have to wonder about Nevada sometimes,"Sheila Leslie wonders in her article's opening paragraph."You'd think a libertarian state, proud of its history of quickie divorces and legalized prostitution, would not be squeamish about providing comprehensive sex education as part of its school curriculum."
She quickly concludes,"You'd be wrong."

Liars and Thieves?, Thieves and Liars?, Do I really have to pick one?
“Reform politicians not only tend to be dishonest but stupidly dishonest—whereas the business politician is honest.
“I don’t see that Lazarus. History seems to show—”.
“Use your head, Ira. I don’t mean that a business politician won’t steal; stealing is his business. But all politicians are nonproductive. The only commodity any politician has to offer is jawbone.

Raising minimum wage ignores crucial fact
Paul Krugman argues in a New York Times article"Raise the wage"that raising the minimum wage is a good idea because it's good policy, good economics and good politics for President Obama.
Krugman notes"the minimum wage is one of the most studied issues in all of economics."
What Krugman doesn't note is that this allows everyone to cherry-pick which study"proves"or"disproves"one's position on the minimum wage.

Hail the Danes (Leave the United States if you can)
I've listened to people talk on and on about how it's cheap to go down into Central and South America, but I - being a single white female am not going to haul ass down there among a bunch of strangers and stand out like a sore thumb. The only way I'd consider (without other options) going down that way was if I knew people there already - either locals/natives or others who are already well established, etc., and I don't, and don't foresee attempting to.

Government, not'gun culture,'is America's most violent culture
Ever since the Connecticut massacre of innocent children politicians have been posturing about ending the"Gun culture"that"glorifies gun violence."
But libertarians know that the single most violent institution in the world today is the United States government.
So does that mean politicians will end our"glorification of gun violence"by ending our senseless wars and our obsessive empire building?

Libertarians and the Concert for Sandy Relief? a metaphor
Besides raising millions of dollars for a praiseworthy cause the second half hour of121212 The Concert for Sandy Reliefserved as a metaphorical stereotype for liberals and conservatives.
Both ideologiesare groupthink oriented, the left believing that"society"or"public"is a single organism with persons as little more than molecules in a living body while the right holds to"family"or"religion"as its single enduring entity while individuals merely come and go.
The difference is in the attitudes they bring to their existence.

War on Obesity is war against freedom and responsibility
"Federal task force wants obese Americans placed into counseling"–RT headline.
People who believe in helping people through government coercion are, whether they know it or not, admit it or not, hatemongers.
They're simply identifying individuals as nothing more than members of one or another group, defining that group as deserving of their"concern"and then targeting everyone else with the task of"helping"that group via government coercion.

Libertarians have a future because Republicans are wimps
Politicians are partners in crime.
Democrat politicians take the lead on social issues and expanding entitlement programs because that's what their base wants. Republican politicians want it too but they loudly protest against it while obediently trotting along behind because they don't want to be accused of being"intolerant"and"insensitive."
Republican politicians take the lead on empire building and expanding the police state because that's what their base wants. Democrats want it too but they loudly protest against it while obediently trotting along behind because they don't want to be accused of being"soft on crime."
Both factions of the OneParty political mob get what they want: more power, more wealth and more ego gratification through big intrusive authoritarian government.
But they're not equal partners in crime; it's more like a host and parasite relationship.

10,000+ spam comments in six weeks!
That must be some kind of record.
And it proves spammers are completely ignorant. RtF moderates allcomments, so not a one of those spam comments was published or even seen by a live body. But automated bots just don't care.

We know this because her Partymates told us by playing their sexism andracism cardssimultaneously.

But who protects the workers from the union bosses?
Anarticle from the Center for a Stateless Society(C4SS) celebrates a"model of networked labor activism"exercised by workers against Wal-Mart during their Black Friday protests.
This model ignores traditional union organizing in favor of wildcat strikes, boycotts, walkouts, flash mobs, picketing, leafleting, and strikes by workers with no ties to any recognized union.
"This model of activism,"the article explains,"is just another example of the way agile networks run circles around twentieth century-style bureaucratic, hierarchical institutions like giant corporations and government agencies."
The point, of course, is to protect the ordinary worker from the abuses of the corporation.
