Welcome back to the second edition of the now weekly feature, “Rand Pauluses and Minuses!” Every week I’ll look at Rand Paul’s moves and give them a positive (Paulus) or negative (Minus) assessment. Fortunately for me, Rand’s been quite busy this week so there is much to discuss. (Last week’s column can be found here) Rand Calls Hillary Clinton a War Hawk BennSwann.com has a full writeup about Rand’s appearance on “Meet the Press,” but in a nutshell, Paul is
Rand Paul has yet to make an official announcement that he is running for President, but that hasn’t stopped him from hiring a campaign manager for his likely 2016 bid. On Tuesday, Paul announced the hiring of strategist Chip Englander. With the hiring of Englander, Senator Paul has avoided selecting a campaign manager with ties to his father (sorry Jesse Benton) or one with Washington roots.

Rand Paul has been in the news over the past couple days pretty prominently, and – as always – it seems that we once again get to play the “Rand Paul Up-Down Game” or what I will now refer to as “Rand Pauluses and Minuses” because I enjoy horrible puns and so will you by the end of this column. Let’s break down Rand’s recent moves, actions and statements and assign them a “Paulus” or Minus accordingly, when viewed from

Your Friday Morning Roar! Mass. SWAT Teams Claim They Are “Private Companies” & Don’t Have to Share Records We often express our desire for police forces to be privatized, but in Massachusetts (and presumably other states as well) privatization has taken a darker turn concerning law enforcement. When the MA ACLU chapter submitted a request for records that should be available from any taxpayer-funded agency, it received a very illuminating response. From the Washington Post: As it turns out, a
In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, host Marc Clair once again welcomes in the Libertarians in Living Rooms Drinking Liquor to celebrate the New Year, LOL Style!

Welcome back to what is hopefully a very short week before getting back to holiday revelry. Your Morning Roar awaits… NSA Reveals “Decades Worth” of Domestic Spying Mistakes on Christmas Eve We all know that Santa was watching to be sure we were good boys and girls all year, but unfortunately so was the NSA, and unlike Santa, spied on millions of Americans without cause and without the promise of a fantastic gift waiting under the tree.

Your Wednesday Morning Roar! Despite Legalization, Teen Marijuana Use Declines In the most recent poll from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, whose “Monitoring the Future” survey is seen as the standard in drug polling in America (despite the name of the poll being despicable, as if the ‘future’ is inextricably linked to the quantities or variety of drugs a person may or may not imbibe), the use of marijuana by teens is….down.

It’s the first Friday in December, which means you most likely have officially slowed down your work efforts leading into the Holidays! I know I have! So, all the more time to read The Morning Roar! “Stand With Hillary” Country Music Video Is Hilariously Bad and Appropriate I had to start with this, seeing as it’s so utterly ridiculous and hilarious and sums up perfectly the liberal mindset when it comes to choosing a candidate. A Super PAC supporting Hillary
The leftist website Media Matters has published a hit piece on Kentucky GOP Senator Rand Paul. In the article they attempt to smear Senator Paul by exposing his relationship with Fox News Contributor and former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano.
