Again, government policy to “ban” behavior only shifts the burden to another form of the same behavior. And the results are even worse. Folks now hold their phones down low instead of upward, as they drive, causing them to take their eyes off the road entirely, causing more crashes. It’s illegal to text while driving in [...]
I love the Students For Orwell website for its deft headline, and I’ll ignore that it hasn’t been updated in two years: Students for an Orwellian Society Because 2013 is 29 years too late.
This classic from my favorite orator is worth watching again and again and again. Judge Andrew Napolitano on the rigged establishment and public opinion as a “manufactured narrative.” Except I do not think this particular segment is responsible for him being fired from FOX.

Rather, it will involve changes to [...]

I’ve never understood the point or purpose of street sweepers – not since I was a small kid. They provide no value whatsoever. Forget what they are supposed to do – they can’t vacuum, they can’t clean, they can’t sweep up into a dustpan, they can’t wax, and they can’t pick up your carry-out dinner [...]
