The interwebs have been abuzz lately with talk of the much-hyped impending “Zombie Apocalypse” that seems to be coming to life (or undeath?) around us. It started with the report of a man literally eating the face off of a homeless man in Miami. Then it was a Texas woman purportedly killing her own infant and eating part of its’ brain. A New Jersey man is said to have cut out his own intestines and thrown them at the cops.
Last night, statewide primary elections were held throughout California, where several of this website’s editors reside. And while Libertarians were represented on several district’s ballots, the results were severely disappointing when the polls closed. Gary Johnson, who was put under scrutiny by our site in the previous article here easily won the nomination for Libertarian presidential candidate, with over 53% of the vote. However in the district-by-district voting, Libertarians were soundly beaten, in a distressing display of how far the
According to Wikipedia, Libertarianism “refers to the group of political philosophies which emphasize freedom, liberty and voluntary association. There is no general consensus among scholars on the precise definition.” Of course it would be a somewhat paradoxical task for any self-appointed “libertarian scholars” to take it upon themselves to formally define a philosophy which is based on self-determination in the first place. But I’m no scholar and I think the word paradox is pretty nifty, so I’m gonna give it
Happy Monday, liberty lovers! After my recent groping from and subsequent conversation with the TSA, I had the chance to vent a little more by going on The New American Media Radio‘s “Agree to Disagree” program this past Friday. After touching on the Bilderberg meeting, I got into the dirty details of TSA pat down and the revealing conversation I had afterwards with a TSA supervisor. Give it a listen!
President Obama sure does love him some Czars, and I always get a kick out of his use of the shockingly honest term. The word Czar or “Tsar” was commonly used in Eastern Europe in reference to Slavic monarchs or other supreme rules. The title implies absolute, unchecked power in its’ holder. The President seemingly has a Czar for just about everything nowadays, from Mideast Peace to AIDS, and even a Great Lakes Czar! Now it seems that President Obama’s
I can’t say I expected much of a response when I sent my complaint e-mail to TSA after the disturbing experience of having my genitals groped the other night on my way home from a holiday weekend. Less than 12 hours after sending my email detailing my experience and asking whether this was in line with policy, I received a phone call from the TSA Supervisor of the airport at which the incident occurred. I didn’t record the conversation but
Put a minor victory in the “win” column today, as the Department of Homeland Spying Security has been forced to release its internal list of words, that when used on social media sites and online media, flag citizens to be spied upon. Utilizing the Freedom of Information Act, the Electronic Privacy Information Center (a watchdog group) has revealed this disturbing and ridiculous list of terms that will officially earn you your very own government spook. In theory this list is
I’ll admit I get an uneasy feeling nowadays whenever I walk up to the security theater stage in an airport. Call me a nitpicker, but watching the throngs of people being shuttled through the futuristic-looking, radiation spewing body-scanners while security “agents” dressed in blue pretending to be police officers sneer at everyone like we’re all terrorists just gives me an icky feeling inside. With that in mind, it’s generally my goal to get through TSA security checkpoints and move on
“What if the American people woke up, and understood that the official reasons for going to war are almost always based on lies and promoted by war propaganda in order to serve special interests?” – Congressman Ron Paul Nary a week seems to go by around this here site where we don’t mention the insidious indefinite detention provisions of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), signed under the cover of New Year’s Eve by President Obama without as much
