Reader Says We Don’t Do Enough

Monday, October 22, 2012 16:11 3 Comments

I received an email from an LRC reader today. This type of theme is not too common, but I occasionally get these letters. It reads as follows: The Word of God teaches me it’s foolish and useless to tell a cold and hungry person to go forth, be filled and warm, unless I give them [...]

Female Student Drops Cake. Assaulted by School Security.

In September, a bully security guard with bad boy-style shaved head pounced on a skinny, young girl in a school cafeteria in Palmdale, CA. The girl had committed a crime by dropping a piece of cake on the floor. She cleaned it up, but a security guard repeatedly bullied her into cleaning it up again. [...]

Multiple Book Disorder

Joe Queenan has written a wonderful article on the Wall Street Journal making fun of himself and his addiction to reading books. Joe’s a bit of a Luddite, so I don’t agree with him about e-books, but he is a superb writer. I also found the embedded interview with Queenan to be quite amusing.

I Want My Country Back (from the Totalitarian Elites)

I received an email from Jimmy Copens, and he sent me his YouTube video of his song, “I want my country back.” Jimmy writes: The producers and songwriters involved in this project are total gun rights advocates and believe government should adhere to their constitutional charter and never restrict the people from having firearms. Even [...]

A new study came out this month proclaiming that all of the people who have died or become very ill from Gardasil can’t possibly pinpoint Gardasil as the causal factor. A new study of Merck & Co.’s Gardasil cervical-cancer vaccine showed it was associated with fainting on the day of inoculation and skin infections two [...]

Federal Dietary Guidelines, RIP

Well, not quite. But George McGovern has passed away at the age of 90. All the media mentions of his accomplishments never seem to include McGovern’s United States Senate Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs that concluded with the politicized and destructive federal dietary guidelines. McGovernism set the stage for the Industrial Food Machine [...]

Bushes and Obamas

Sunday, October 21, 2012 7:39 3 Comments

I keep seeing the old bumper stickers on cars around town: “Bush I and II. War and Recession.” Lots of truth in that. But then they have an Obama sticker right next to it. And the Obama sticker never says, “Obama I [and potentially II]. War, Recession, Bust & Meltdown, Devalued Dollar, Wall Street & [...]

Libertarians Going Paleo (Primal)

Sunday, October 21, 2012 7:29 1 Comment

Lew Rockwell wrote this blog, just recently, on libertarians and paleo: When I spoke at the two Ron Paul events in Tampa, a young man kind enough to pick me up at the airport told me a fascinating story. The vast majority of young Ron volunteers in offices he visited all over the country were [...]

Technology vs. the Gatekeepers

I love this video from Corning, “A Day Made of Glass.” To me, this represents why independent, Internet-based media will ultimately smash the pro-state, mega-media organs, and why independent e-publishing will demolish the Neanderthal publishing houses.

Free-Range Mom vs. the Mass Hysteria

Here is a wonderful podcast with America’s most rational Mom, Lenore Skenazy, the proprietor of the blog Free-Range Kids. Lenore explains what it means to be a free-range parent as opposed to being a parent who is trapped within the confines of the “fear everything” society. Lenore focuses on the safety obsession around kids and [...]
