Two totalitarian laws closer to being enacted

Friday, November 19th, 2010

You might have heard about two awful, totalitarian, Orwellian laws that the Senate is close to passing, which would unquestionably make our lives worse and cement this Democratic Congress as one of the worst in our history.

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

Even though nobody who reads this page cares about or even knows about the Regular Guys, an Atlanta morning radio show, you might still get a kick out of Tim Andrews's impersonation of Alex Jones of infowars.com. His impersonations are one of the reasons he's my favorite Regular Guy. This ...

This is truly a devastating list of criminality ...

The science of libertarian morality

Friday, November 5th, 2010

That is the title of an article by Ronald Bailey at Reason about a recently published psychological survey comparing libertarians, conservatives, and liberals. The survey's findings were interesting, if unsurprising: It will not surprise Reason readers that the study found that libertarians show (1) stronger endorsement of individual liberty as their ...
