Despite the fact that it’s a fundamental principle of leadership, taught in NCO and SNCO schools alike, it’s becoming very rare to see senior NCOs and officers stand up for their Marines. The few leaders in possession of a certain level of “testicular fortitude” (e.g. Gen. Mattis) seem to be being shown the door en masse recently. That’s why I needed to give a nod of respect to Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps Micheal Barrett, who spoke his mind to Congress at a recent congressional hearing focused on cutting funding to military commissaries. The senior enlisted of three other U.S. military branches were also present at the hearing, however, the Coast Gaurd’s was not present. Read more…
I have never seen the most powerful people in the country come together so uniformly as they have to push for amnesty legislation. The backers of the DREAM act and amnesty legislation seem to be a who’s who list of our nation’s most powerful and wealthy individuals. And they’re all united with one common goal: amnesty.

In 1964, minimum wage was 5 silver quarters per hour, totaling $1.25. Today (2/27/2013), those same 5 quarters are worth $26.21 in melt value.
Our minimum wage could have remained the same for the last 50 years and a minimum wage job today would have the purchasing power of a job that is paid over $26 per hour.
That was the benefit of having precious metals backing our currency (aka The Gold Standard). The downside was that those in power couldn’t manipulate the money for their own profit.
We don’t need to fix the minimum wage, we need to fix our money.

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.
