This is the type of battle where there is no lesser of two evils, but still, it is amusing to see the Corn Refiners Association be denied its petition to change the name of high fructose corn syrup to corn sugar.
I have previously posted on the story of ‘Diabetes Warrior’ Steve Cooksey (see #1 here and #2 here), a guy who has been tyrannized by the North Carolina government for using his own property to dispense ideas, advice, and encouragement that goes against the conventional wisdom of the federal government food pyramid and the various [...]
My postings have been on the light side, lately, and that’s because I have been a bit preoccupied with other “stuff.” There is much to catch up on in the world of freedom, and I look forward to getting back to work tackling some of the larger and more visible issues. About five weeks ago [...]
CBS San Francisco has become the caveman channel, especially since Dr. Kim Mulvihill of CBS 5 went paleo. In this video, she does a great intro for folks interested in eating real food via the paleolithic lifestyle.

Another reason I like my job. Anyway, I need an ergonomic solution because, six weeks post-hip surgery, all the sitting at [...]
It is interesting to note that Reason Magazine online now points to an archive of “food politics.” The coverage of food politics doesn’t begin until July, 2011. I welcome my fellow libertarians who are finally waking up to the government-corporate state’s war on the non-industrial food movement through coercive and violent political actions. I am [...]
I noticed this while surfing the Mises Institute store for digital books. I never knew that Rothbard wrote a book, The Case Against the eBook. As always, he had quite a knack for prophecy (digital books), but I can’t imagine why he would have turned unlibertarian in the case of eBooks?
