Russians Are Laughing in Obama’s Face

↳ Posted on March 27th, 2014 by Ben Spera

Putin_laughIn a recent article the Washington Examiner quoted Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) as saying “The only thing Putin respects is strength… At this point the Russians are openly laughing at the president.” It’s not just Russia, it seems the entire world is laughing at Obama. The only people with any fear of his regime are American citizens. The increasingly violent police, federal authorities and tyrannical legislation and executive orders leaves my head spinning.

Try Gnome 3.12 Preview in Fedora 20

↳ Posted on March 6th, 2014 by Ben Spera

Gnome 3.12 is due out later this month, but if you want to try it out now on Fedora you can use R Hughes’ COPR repository for a early peek. I’m currently using it and it’s pretty stable. I especially like the new updates to Gnome’s Epiphany browser.

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality

Posted on January 25th, 2014 by Ben Spera

14137_large_net_neutralityAs 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.

Texas Police Roadblock Collected Drivers’ Saliva, Blood

Posted on November 20th, 2013 by Ben Spera

Police-roadblockFriday, off duty police officers set up a mid-day road block, diverting drivers into a parking lot where federal contractors took blood and cheek swabs. Several residents of North Fort Worth said that they tried to avoid the pull off, but were forced off the road, into the parking lot.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the blood and swabs were collected for a voluntary, national survey and the samples are anonymous. Dallas-Forth Worth Police Department originally denied any involvement, but later admitted that their Traffic Division coordinated the event with the Traffic Safety Admin and off duty officers.

The Fourth Amendment seemingly doesn’t apply to off duty police officers corralling citizens for unofficial, “voluntary” sobriety surveys. Is this the life of a free American citizen? To be detained and tested at the government’s leisure. No available recourse, except to complain to the very same management that approved and participated in this fiasco to begin with.
