"When libertarians (or simply people with common sense) argue against proposals to solve a certain class of perceived problems (e.g., mass murders by odd-ball lunatics or crazed zealots) by imposing more stringent government controls, closer surveillance, and so forth, the proponents often reply: well, if you don't think my idea for government action will work, what do you propose instead to solve the problem? They are never happy when told that a better idea is to do nothing to solve it.

Yet, in truth, problems of a certain sort (e.g.,mass murders by odd-ball lunatics or crazed zealots) do not have a solution in anything even close to a free society. These types of problems involve such unsystematic, infrequent, and inexplicable actions that no one can anticipate and preempt them. Lightning will strike people sometimes; nothing can be done about it except to advise people to stay inside during thunderstorms and in no event to go outside carrying an iron rod.

So, one might propose, for example, that the U.S. government stop blundering around in the Middle East carrying the "iron rods" that will attract the lightning of aggrieved Muslims whose friends, relatives, or causes have been harmed or killed by American actions. Absent such general palliatives, one must simply resign himself to the reality that occasionally -- albeit very, very infrequently -- bad things will happen. Even locking every human being in a cell will not solve such problems, either, because bad things happen in prisons, too. Indeed, nearly everything that happens in a prison or an un-free society is bad." - Robert Higgs

Libertarian solutions rarely acknowledge the effects of trans-national corporate gangs' influence on the actions of government. "Blundering around in the Middle East" is a comic-book description of today's realpolitik environment.

Most likely you wouldn't have been all that pleased with Barry G., either! :) I vaguely remember him from when I was a kid -- even the rednecks here in Kansas+Nebraska weren't quite ready for Goldwater.

I actually had that happen when I was a field service tech. Drove forty miles and sure enough the PC was unplugged. I told the woman responsible that I would cover her ass, but I did have to charge them fifty dollars for the call.

Not quite banker takes all 20 cookies hands one to the worker and says you owe me one with interest. If you aren't careful the immigrant will take the 1 you have.

I'm an aspiring photographer and tech geek.
Introduction

I love Android.

If I can take a picture of it, you'll likely see me trying to, but you'll likely only see me upload what I decide is good... 

 I like to debate things (in a respectful manner) I love seeing all of the things posted on G+. . . But most of all, I love being a geek.
Bragging rights
I was here before G+ was open publicly. ^_^
