In his recent address to the nation, President Obama called for stricter gun control to combat “domestic terrorism”. Like many liberals, Obama has shown support for Australian-style mandatory gun buy backs. Regardless of whether or not it would survive the political process, I think it’s worth mentioning what exactly they are advocating and how exactly millions of gun owners, including myself, would react. Perhaps a liberal will read this and realize the potential consequences of their conquest. (more…)
Progressives often tout compulsory government programs as examples that America is already socialist. They are right, but they seem to lack an understanding of what their “success” entails. Occupy Democrats has taken the position of “if you don’t like it, don’t use it”. Speaking for myself, I would love to opt out of Social Security and Medicare among others.
Only one problem: I cannot. (more…)
For over a decade, government enforcers kidnapped people deemed invalid and held them at a black-site location without due process or civil rights. Over 7,000 people came through the facility and less than 1% ever saw an attorney. (more…)
Deputy Darren Goforth from Texas was filling his car with gas when a man walked up behind him, shot him in the back of the head, and emptied 15 rounds into his body. He was murdered cold blooded execution style.
I blame his murder on the recent fury of political rhetoric. The shooter had no apparent motive other than “kill a guy in uniform”. We may have problems with the current system of police, but that does not justify killing people. (more…)
Anti-market critics often and correctly voice concern about the growing relationship between government and big business. Unfortunately, since most of them come from the left, their remedy seems to be more government. The problem is not, however, rooted in market forces. (more…)
Women’s Equality Day filled my newsfeed with memes and articles about women’s rights. Facebook took the time to even proclaim how women “achieved” the right to vote. Of course, no one stopped to ask why they needed to “achieve” a right.
Let’s get one thing straight: you cannot “achieve” rights nor are they government permissions. They exist naturally. (more…)
While on the Internet, I came across a new device that capitalizes off public fear. It seems that we can’t have a tragedy in this country without an immediate “solution”, yet people keep wondering why they still happen. This is particularly true with police brutality. The new device is known as the “clown gun”. (more…)
The GOP presidential race is currently America’s biggest circus. Ring leader Donald Trump has made headlines with his take-no-prisoners attitude toward the media and political correctness. Although he has been rude at times, I commend his brazen moves to push back. When it comes to matter of principle, however, Trump has none. His entire campaign has thus far been one giant scream into the microphone. (more…)
I constantly see the left demand “free” stuff be provided to everyone at the expense of everyone else. Underlying their demands is a serious moral contention worth discussing. In essence, they would coerce a producer into service and compel other people to pay the costs. (more…)
Local governments are known to pursue revenue opportunities by any means necessary even if it means misrepresenting their own laws. In Grosse Ile, Michigan, fine-happy bureaucrats have doled out numerous threats and tickets to a resident. Why? He parked is RV in the wrong place on his property. (more…)
