Toy Stampede

Here we go with another episode of Dingbatus Americanus Consumerism: The line of several thousand waiting customers wrapped entirely around the Toys R Us building at 4411 W. Wisconsin Ave. Thursday night. Moments before the store opened at 10 p.m., the line of those who’d just arrived and line of those who’d waited many hours overlapped. [...]

Kurt Haskell on the Underwear Bomber

Let us not forget about Kurt Haskell, the heroic Detroit area attorney who witnessed the “Underwear Bomber” event and has since shared his observations and experience for all, without any motive other than revealing the truth. On the Haskell family blog, Kurt has put together an excellent synopsis of the events on flight 253 in the [...]

Time Inc. Leaves Detroit

Friday, November 26, 2010 8:10 1 Comment

From Time magazine’s “How to Shrink a City“: Barely a mile from Betty Corley’s lonely house on Dubois Street, on a typical autumn weekend morning, the stalls and booths of Detroit’s Eastern Market are a gastronomic wonder — and a social one as well. Nearly 40,000 people from throughout the metropolitan area flock to the [...]

The TSA is Only Subjecting You to “Freedom Fondles”

Wednesday, November 24, 2010 7:07 14 Comments

This column by Debra Saunders is revealing as to her level of flag-foisting, plastic-patriotism cluelessness. Her column is titled, “Not TSA Pat-Down, But Freedom Fondles.” You see, the TSA is fondling – sexually assaulting – you in the name of freedom. Always, for these folks, we measure our level of freedom by the lack of [...]

Hyper-Consumer Culture Begets Boobus

Tuesday, November 23, 2010 5:32 6 Comments

The Idiocracy lives on. The First Family of Best Buy have made history – they have been camping out at a Best Buy store for Black Friday deals since 10am last Wednesday. What is the reasoning behind this? “We’re tired of not being first and we figured we’ve put in six years, we want to [...]

Hot Bodies Running the TSA’s Gauntlet

Tuesday, November 23, 2010 5:25 5 Comments

My latest article is up on LRC. The TSA’s antics have been all over the mainstream news. In fact, the local (Detroit) news on FOX at 10pm last night spent 20 minutes covering the TSA sexual assault issue. I am really hoping for a big clusterfuck at the airports this weekend. On the other hand, [...]

Crisis. Safety. Regulate. Ban. You Lose, Corporate Interests Win.

As always, it’s a crisis. Under the guise of “crisis” there is always a need for new government powers, new laws, “reforms”, and of course, “bold moves” on the part of empowered agents of the state. For instance, educated folks (like libertarians) have been aware of the Food Safety Modernization Act that is being pushed [...]

Hot Bodies Must Deny the “Cop-a-Feel” Scheme

Sunday, November 21, 2010 21:40 18 Comments

The latest backlash against the TSA’s new groping procedures is finally reaching a level of furor that is in proportion to the atrocious crimes we have been subjected to since the government’s favorite excuse for totalitarianism: 9/11. I haven’t flown much at all in the last few years because I figured if I did, sooner [...]
