Your Vote Won't Matter. Don't Waste It.
by Art Carden
January 19, 2012
How to Win at Voting. Here's a sad truth: if you're going to vote in the 2012 election because you're afraid the Right Candidate won't win (or the Wrong Candidate will) if you don't, then you're wasting your time.
The probability that you die in an auto accident driving to the polling place is higher than the probability that you cast the decisive ballot. I'll be blunt: if you vote for Obama because you're afraid of a Republican win, or if you vote for the Republican because you're afraid of an Obama win, then you're wasting your time. You're also wasting your vote. You've probably heard the claim that politics is too partisan, too nasty, and too disingenuous. This is perhaps to be expected; to paraphrase the philosopher Jason Brennan (whose excellent The Ethics of Voting I just reviewed for Public Choice and will discuss here in greater detail later), elections encouraged civilized conversation and thoughtful, reasoned reflection the way fraternity parties encourage temperance and sobriety. This is especially true of Presidential elections.

Zimmerman Judge Must Step Aside, Court Rules
by Andrew Chow, JD
August 29, 2012
George Zimmerman's judge must step aside because of bias, a Florida appellate court ruled Wednesday.
The ruling means a new judge will soon preside over Zimmerman's second-degree murder case in the killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, according to a website set up by Zimmerman's defense team. Zimmerman's lawyer Mark O'Mara filed a motion in July to disqualify Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. But Lester denied the motion, finding it "legally insufficient." O'Mara appealed to Florida's Fifth District Court of Appeal, which disagreed with Lester's finding.

George Zimmerman, charged in Florida with shooting an unarmed black teenager, sued NBC Thursday, charging an edited 911 tape defamed him.
In a complaint filed in Seminole County in Florida, Zimmerman said the network edited the tape to make him appear racist, CNN reported. Two former reporters were also named as defendants. "NBC saw the death of Trayvon Martin not as a tragedy but as an opportunity to increase ratings, and so set about to create the myth that George Zimmerman was a racist and predatory villain," the complaint says.
Zombie statists ask, 'But if there's no government, who will build roads?!'
by David McElroy
April 28, 2012
It's a bad movie that you might have seen before. It tends to show up whenever an advocate of voluntary cooperation explains how society could operate without state coercion.
Right on cue, the zombies from "Night of the Living Statists" rear their heads and mindlessly intone, "But if there's no government, who will build the roads?!" The zombies can't hear your response, so it's useless to try to give them facts and explain how things could be done in a way that's better for everyone if roads and other such things were provided as private services rather than as coercive government monopolies. For those who are open to the facts, though, is there any evidence that people can actually cooperate voluntarily for their own interests? As a matter of fact, there's quite a bit of evidence of that.

Alinsky-style behavior in the workplace itself may have been the key.
Recent studies have confirmed that American universities have become bigoted and biased against the expression of conservative views. One new study documents bias against the expression of conservative views among social and personality psychologists, including those at universities...
[VIDEO] DHS Caught Moving Somali Muslim Illegals Into California
by Colleen Conley

A shocking new video blows the Obama Administration's covert plans to bus hundreds of illegal Muslim Somali's into California and other states to "resettle".
According to the DHS, all that any of the African refugees must do is find a border agent and say "I am in danger in my home country, and want asylum in the United States." Once they utter those words, they are off limits to deportation and are turned over to DHS resettlement specialists who help them move into communities across the country.
