YanksTitlePhotosmThis is a day you won’t learn about in history class. It doesn’t foster pride in the American ideal we’ve been taught to be so proud of.

la_losangeles_county_sheriff-thumb-640xauto-4244Los Angeles law enforcement has a very well known reputation, a reputation that is known across the world. It’s known for being very corrupt and very violent. Nothing proved this more than the televised manhunt for former LAPD Officer Christopher Dorner. A ‘rogue’ officer, who’s main grievance was of department corruption, had all law enforcement for miles turn the greater Los Angeles area into a chaotic, lawless war zone. Officers repeatedly misidentified and shot innocent civilians with no repercussions or any sign of remorse.

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality

Posted on January 25th, 2014 by Ben Spera

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.

A Chemist’s Final Experiment

Posted on February 24th, 2014 by Ben Spera

Antoine-lavoisierFrench chemist Antoine Lavoisier was sentenced to death by guillotine in 1794 France. This was a time when the French were very partial to their bladed contraption of death. Lavoisier is credited in part with creation of the Metric system and the periodic table. As his last contribution to science, he promised to attempt to blink his eyes for as long as consciously possible after being beheaded by the guillotine. Different sources put his postmortem blinking to as long as 30 seconds. A record that very few will attempt to challenge.
