Far too often I read something to the effect of "Scientists say, [something that has nothing to do with the scientific method]".
 
Before you call me "anti-science," read this to the end. Read it without emotion. Put your ego on the back burner and let the assertion sink in.

Weird thumbnail but that was pretty good.

For the last several years I have seen about 20 stories of police abuse for every one story of police behaving as they should. I have not posted about every piece of abuse, but I have pointed them out on occasion. Today, one of my friends (who argued against the US as a police state 2 years ago) posted a video of abuse and called the US a police state. I'm glad to see that people from all political perspectives are finally waking up.

I need to go to the lumber yard, but they are all closed today for some reason.

Stolen from Bob Murphy. Once Obamacare completely fails the "progressives" will push through single-payer health-care, so that we can have low prices, just like the single payer Pentagon.

I just saw a Federal Protective Service Police SUV cruising around on the streets of my neighborhood, no where near federal land where he would have jurisdiction.

Should anything surprise us anymore after the NSA?  Are we really justified in thinking we have rights just because we were told that we had rights growing up and were given copies of the constitution and told to study it?  I suppose we could continue assuming that we do have rights and act accordingly when the thing we think we have is contradicted, right?  Sounds good to me.

I'm guilty of making the occasional FSO, instead of proper furniture. Part of the problem for me is that people expect furniture that's designed and built to last for centuries to cost the same as furniture that's designed and built to last for no more than 20 years. When you compare the yearly cost of a $500 FSO that lasts 15 years ($33/ year) to a $2,000 piece of furniture that lasts 200 years ($10/ year) it makes sense to buy the properly made piece, but too many people don't have the finances to support that kind of purchase.

Furniture Shaped Object, it's something that looks like furniture, but is not actually made right. Similar to how Blacksmiths will refer to ASO's (Anvil Shaped Objects) when they have something that looks like an anvil, but is not made right.
