    Hate to shill for anything PBS, but apparently a group of libertarian organizations put together this special on the life, times, and thinking of Dr. Walter E, Williams which is making the rounds on PBS and I actually caught tonight in prime time on the Philly outlet. Following Williams from his youth in Philadelphia through his time in the army in the late fifties, the program details his introduction to racial discrimination in the military. He was appalled when he discovered that blacks in the army were given only menial assignments; when his lieutenant ordered him to paint a truck...

    Politically speaking, President Barack Obama is almost as toxic as the ominous viruses he continues to mismanage. Every Democratic candidate fears the contagion and seeks to quarantine himself from his presence and policies. Its hardly unfair to say that Obama has earned his current condition, having squandered more unearned goodwill than any president in recent memory. Despite his fall, during a speech at Northwestern University earlier this month, Obama couldnt resist blurting out: Im not on the ballot this fall. Michelles pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: These policies are on the ballot every single one of...

    President Obama says hes shaken by this weeks violent attacks on three soldiers in Ottawa by an Islamic jihadist. He immediately phoned Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to offer support and solidarity. He vowed to remain vigilant. Too bad Obama didnt show the same resolve after multiple attacks and plots against our troops by Muslim terrorists on our soil. And Im not just talking about the workplace violence of jihadist Nidal Hasan, whose Koran-inspired Fort Hood rampage took the lives of 13 American servicemen and servicewomen and one unborn baby. An entire parade of infidel-hating fanatics targeted U.S. soldiers long...

    Submitted by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com, One of the most dangerous philosophical contentions even amongst liberty movement activists is the conundrum of government force and prevention during times of imminent pandemic. All of us at one time or another have had this debate. If a legitimate viral threat existed and threatened to infect and kill millions of Americans, is it then acceptable for the government to step in, remove civil liberties, enforce quarantines, and stop people from spreading the disease? After all, during a viral event, the decisions of each individual can truly have a positive or negative effect on...

    Apparently, the usual sober and fraught political commentary that often accompanies episodes of physical violence directed toward women disappears when the subject of that violence is a Palin. The political press had a hearty chuckle at the expense of the Palins when it first broke that the former first family of Alaska was involved in an alcohol-fueled brawl. The thrilla in Wasilla, some called it. One might, however, have expected the laughter to die down after local police released audio of Bristol Palin who described through hysterical tears how she had been assaulted, dragged through the grass, and robbed.

Just past the New Mexico border, in Arizona, is the San Simon rest stop, at exit 388 on I-10. I have been to this rest stop many times. The Rest Area Guide is old and weatherbeaten. There is no prohibition on the carry of arms, because of open carry activists actions at the Sacaton rest stop in 1998. No one had a problem with me having a pistol in the rest area.

When asked about the possibility that over 50,000 minimum wage workers in Florida could lose their jobs if minimum wage rates go higher, Charlie Crist is quoted as saying that, Well, the reason I think its worth it is people deserve it.

While establishment Republicans and Tea Party enthusiasts alike fully recognize the failings and inadequacies of the GOP, we need fully recognize that our goals of a more perfect Union and the future of our children depends on electing men and women who share and reflect our values to the US Senate, Governors mansions and (possibly of even greater importance) state legislature...

The suspect above is accused of stealing money from a resident, then returning to attack a resident of the home involved. From kgw.com: "The resident...

    To change Islam, we would have to understand why its ugliness still speaks to Muslims Every few years the debate over reforming Islam bubbles up from the depths of a culture that largely censors any suggestion that Islam needs reforming. But Islam does not exist apart from Muslims. It is not an abstract entity that can be changed without changing its followers. And if Islam has not changed, that is because Muslims do not want it to. Mohammed and key figures in Islam provided a template, but that template would not endure if it did not fit the worldview of...

He begins by saying that ISIS "might also be a concern," but what is much, much more "disturbing," according to Talbert? Moderate Muslims denouncing the terrorist group.

    One of my favorite little moments in the very entertaining new Star Trek movie comes when the young James T. Kirk activates the computer system of a car he swiped for a joyride, and the Nokia logo comes up. Its nice to see Nokias still in business in the twenty-third century. Such simple touches help to humanize the Star Trek universe, which had drifted a bit too far from recognizable human experience for audiences to fully engage with its characters. The presence of a good old-fashioned corporate logo in the new movie put me in mind of a long-ago, free-wheeling,...

    When Deng Xiaoping took over China in the late 1970s, China was a very poor country. One of the first things that Deng did was to allow individuals to acquire and maintain property. This capitalistic approach started one of the greatest economic transformations in world history. More people in China have been lifted from poverty in a shorter span of time than ever before in human history. Half a billion Chinese citizens have risen out of poverty due to Chinas economic swing to capitalist policies!China still has its problems, but while the US is moving more and more towards a...

Performers of La Traviata didnt notice the woman until the second act, at which point they refused to continue performing until she was...
