"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."
                                             -- George Washington

"If we stuck to the Constitution as written, we would have: no federal meddling in our schools; no Federal Reserve; no U.S. membership in the UN; no gun control; and no foreign aid.

We would have no welfare for big corporations, or the "poor"; no American troops in 100 foreign countries; no NAFTA, GATT, or "fast-track"; no arrogant federal judges usurping states rights; no attacks on private property; no income tax. We could get rid of most of the cabinet departments, most of the agencies, and most of the budget."

Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom by Dr. Ron Paul

"Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens' lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons."
                                             -- Congressman Ron Paul

End the Fed by Dr. Ron Paul

"The government is best which governs least."

Army ditches failed combat uniform that put a target on grunts' backs for 8 years

Over the next year, America's largest fighting force is swapping its camouflage pattern. The move is a quiet admission that the last uniform - a pixelated design that debuted in 2004 at a cost of $5 billion - was a colossal mistake. Soldiers have roundly criticized the gray-green uniform for standing out almost everywhere it's been worn. Industry insiders have called the financial mess surrounding the pattern a "fiasco."

Chicago aldermen in committee have approved the multi-million dollar tab to settle lawsuits charging police misconduct at the 2003 Iraq War protests here in Chicago. Lawyers will make millions from taxpayers.

On top of the $6.2 million being paid to plaintiffs, their lawyers are being paid $5 million. Mayor Emanuel's Corporation Counsel Stephen Patton says the city learned lessons from the cases and applied them to the NATO protests and the earlier Occupy Chicago protests. "Folks in both of those protesters were arrested only after extensive notice, and repeated notice. And an opportunity to leave and avoid arrest if they chose to do so."

A government website intended to make federal spending more transparent was missing at least $619 billion from 302 federal programs, a government audit has found.

And the data that does exist is wildly inaccurate, according to the Government Accountability Office, which looked at 2012 spending data. Only 2% to 7% of spending data on USASpending.gov is "fully consistent with agencies' records," according to the report. Among the data missing from the 6-year-old federal website...

It's Chicago, of course. And this is what the city gets after a bribery scandal pushed one contractor out of the bidding process.

The Chicago Tribune reports: Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration finalized a $67 million, five-year contract to install up to 300 cameras to catch speeders around city schools and parks, but a slow rollout could mean as few as 50 locations operating this year, the city and vendor confirmed Wednesday. The program sold by the mayor as a child-safety initiative could eventually mean hundreds of millions of dollars in ticket revenue for the city. But Emanuel reduced his initial projection of $30 million in ticket revenue this year to $15 million, due to a combination of technical delays and the bribery scandal that engulfed the city's red light camera vendor amid a series of Tribune stories that began last year.

The total federal debt of the U.S. government has now increased more than $7 trillion during the slightly more than five and a half years Barack Obama has been president.

That is more than the debt increased under all U.S. presidents from George Washington through Bill Clinton combined, and it is more debt than was accumulated in the first 227 years of this nation's existence--from 1776 through 2003. The total federal debt first passed the $7-trillion mark on Jan. 15, 2004, after President George W. Bush had been in office almost three years.

Just moments before the Blackhawks parade traveled east on Washington Street, Chicago police stopped a man in front of City Hall, checked his backpack and discovered two guns.

Officials say there's no reason to believe a Matteson man arrested Friday morning near Chicago City Hall with two guns on him was planning on harming anyone at the Blackhawks' Stanley Cup victory celebration. Still, 37-year-old Roger Harrison faces two felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon and one count of marijuana possession. Bail was set at $75,000 Saturday when Harrison appeared in bond court, according to the Chicago Tribune.
