Two French civilians say a prayer as they lay flowers on a fallen American soldier near the city of Cerentan in 1944 France. This picture says a lot about the respect and appreciation the allies had for each other, something the axis lacked.
Next month NASA’s New Horizons probe will wake up from it’s final hibernation in order to begun preparation for it’s arrival in the dwarf planet’s vicinity. The probe has travelled nearly 3 billion miles since launching in January of 2006.

Lately there has been a bunch of accusations directed toward comedian Bill Cosby, but I’ve seen very little evidence – actually no evidence to support these accusations. A little bit of research seems to put these accusations in the same league as similar accusations against the Duke Lacrosse players a few years ago. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem that most learned anything from that whole ordeal. Cosby has been treated as a criminal, NBC and Netflix both dropped plans for a new Cosby projects, despite the fact that prosecutors investigated the accusations and didn’t find evidence to support charges.
Here’s a picture including every surface mankind has visited as of 2014.

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality
As a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.
Rep Cheri Bustos: Military Pension Cuts Right for America
[repost img=”http://blog.benspera.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Bustos-Obama.jpg” title=”DEM REP. CHERI BUSTOS: BUDGET THAT CUTS MILITARY PENSIONS ‘RIGHT FOR AMERICA'” desc=”Freshman Democrat Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL) held two budget events in her Western Illinois district on Tuesday. The events, in which constituents pick their priorities for spending, are designed to support the argument that government needs more revenue. Beyond that, however, Bustos used the event to say how ‘pleased’ she was to vote for the Paul Ryan-Patty Murray budget that increases spending, raises user fees and cuts veterans’ pensions.” url=”http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/12/18/Dem-Rep-Cheri-Bustos-Budget-That-Cuts-Military-Pensions-Right-for-America”]
