Here are two events where each President went to visit U.S. Marines. The two events are like night and day in the manner that the Marines welcome the two Presidents. President Bush takes the cake here by far.
When the United States Marine Corps loves you that much nothing else really matters.
NASA is currently working on a theoretical propulsion drive which will allow humans to travel not only faster than light, but much faster. Most current proposals offer near light-speed at best, but this idea goes even further, making interstellar travel very feasible within the lifetime of a single human. It is extraordinary in the fact that it will make the universe much smaller, allowing us to reach out and physically touch our celestial neighbors. Read more…
Ten years ago ex-U.S. Marine Corporal Wassef Ali Hassoun walked off Camp Fallujah, Iraq. Hassoun was a reservist from Utah and caused quite a stir in the earlier days of the Iraq War pretending to be a captured POW. It was later found out that he had close family in Fallujah and it was all a ruse. I personally remember this vividly as at the time I was also a Marine two months from deploying to the very base that Hassoun disappeared from. Read more…

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.
Law Would Brand Speed-trap Towns with Colored Signs
A great idea out of Tennessee that didn’t make it past state legislators. A bill from 2006 would have required towns that generates more than half of its revenue from speeding tickets to use blue-colored speed limit signage. The motivation behind this bill was certain towns that intentionally lower speed limits to unreasonably low levels in order to generate more revenue from speeding tickets. This undermines the purpose of speed limits, which is supposed to be for public safety, not government revenue. But we all know how that goes.
