The most disturbing part of the story is that it was completely unintentional; the reporter was just trying to give the poor guy a high five. This is some of the worst hand-eye coordination I’ve seen… and a respectable amount of restraint shown by the guy who got palmed in the face.
President Teddy Roosevelt has a reputation for being a tough guy, but here’s a story a bit more personal than the common tale of his days leading the Rough Riders. The best part of this story is that it’s in the President’s own words. It really does justice to the fair but tough man that Roosevelt was.
Take note that Roosevelt makes it clear that he really didn’t want this confrontation, but lacked any alternatives at the time. He also didn’t fall in with the other patrons who submitted to the bully and allow him to continue his shenanigans. He even let a few of the bully’s jibes slide until he stood up. Great story.

In an unprecedented act of open criticism of a sitting President, two 4-star Generals have publicly blasted President Obama’s policies. Several weeks ago Marine Corps General John Kelly, commander of U.S. Southern Command, first spoke out about the President’s border crisis, and now the Marine Corps top commander, Gen. James Amos, Marine Corps Commandant, publicly ridiculed President Obama’s handling of Iraq and the subsequent mess that ensued.
This is the same VA that made headlines recently after they were caught bugging a room being used by investigators.

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.
Gnome 3 Native Theme for Firefox
These quick tweaks will give Firefox a nice facelift, making it look completely native to your GNOME 3 desktop. These tweaks are said to also work if you’re using GNOME 3’s ‘Global Dark Theme’ option found in Gnome Tweak, but I haven’t tested that claim.
This not only makes Firefox a little easier on the eyes, but it also reclaims some priceless real estate from Firefox’s toolbar and status bar. Many of the GUI design features that have kept me clinging onto Chrome have been relieved with these tweaks, allowing me to finally leave the botnet-infested Chrome for a real open-source browser.
