I experienced escalating ridiculousness of the rules of engagement between my two deployments to Iraq in 2004 and 2006. I can only imagine how asinine they have become at this point. When the inanimate property of foreign individuals is of more importance to our government than the lives of our servicemen, we have a serious corruption of priorities. When calls for artillery from our men are denied due to the possibility of collateral damage to civilian property, we have a problem. Read more…
A breath of fresh air for American drivers came in the form of a recent decision from U.S. District Judge Henry E. Autrey in St. Louis, Missouri. A local man was ticketed by police for flashing his headlights to warn oncoming motorists of a police speed trap. The Missouri American Civil Liberties Union took up his case and defended him of the charges in court. The charges were dropped, but the ACLU pursued it even further, filing a civil lawsuit against the police department. Read more…
During the manhunt for former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner, eight police officers unloaded over one hundred rounds into a truck containing two innocent women driving their paper route. Both LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and the department’s civilian oversight board admit that the officers violated their ‘official policy.’ Such a violation would justify Chief Beck firing the officers, but instead, he is returning the officers back to street duty. He said that he “appreciate[d] that the officers involved in the incident took action with intent of protecting the ‘target’ and his family; however, the chain of events which unfolded and the extent to which the use of lethal force occurred did not meet my expectations, consequently there were innocent victims wounded.” Read more…
According to Dr. Neil E. Whitehead, PhD, homosexuals aren’t born with their sexual orientation, but they don’t choose it either – they discover it. Six studies were performed over an 11-year-span regarding the relationship between a person’s genes and their sexual orientation. Dr. Whitehead has a PhD in biochemistry and has been employed as a scientist by the government of New Zealand (for over 20 years) and the United Nations, but currently works as a scientific research consultant. His studies analyzed same-sex orientation among identical twins. This is because identical twins share the exact same genetic code (e.g. DNA). Read more…
Astronomers have crowned a new king as the largest structure in the observable universe. This title was formerly held by the Huge Large Quasar Group which consisted of 73 quasars spanning a mind-boggling 4 billion light years. As of November 2013 that title is now held by the Hercules–Corona Borealis Great Wall, an enormous grouping of galaxies spanning an unimaginable 10 billion light years. This “great wall” is the first structure that is not a large quasar group to hold this title since 1991.

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.
