"The problem with this brand of modern social justice advocacy is that who one is as a person (race, class, gender, etc.) is the be all and end all of their capacity to have a certain viewpoint. A millennial social justice advocate can discount an opinion simply because it is said or written by a group they feel oppresses them. It is a logical fallacy known as ad hominem whereby one attacks the person saying an argument rather than the argument itself. But this logical fallacy has become the primary weapon of the millennial social justice advocate. It is miasma to academia, to critical thinking, and to intellectual honesty. Yet it is the primary mode of operating on college campuses nationwide."

"Mind you, this is an agency that regularly employs kleptos and perverts, an agency that handed out security badges to criminals and on at least one occasion a dog. It does not hire the best and brightest, and those with any critical faculties understand that their job—confiscating snow globes and nail clippers—is a bad joke."
It’s time government employees stopped fondling airline passengers and taking their stuff.

Due process for anything less than all Americans is the moral equivalent of due process for none.  We cannot claim to be a nation of laws.  They are no longer applied uniformly, so they are not laws.
 
Obama’s secret execution approval process denies citizens due process.
The whole reason for the requirement of due process was to prevent what Henry VIII did and Obama is doing from ever happening here.

When neither the executive nor the legislature reads the laws before passing them, it is clear that the text doesn't matter, only the realpolitik of the governors.

"Of 28 examiners with the FBI Laboratory’s microscopic hair comparison unit, 26 overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far, . . .
The cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death. Of those, 14 have been executed or died in prison, . . . ."
h/t +Christopher Bowen 
Forensic hair matches were overstated in many cases heard before 2000, including those of 32 defendants sentenced to death, the FBI and the Justice Department acknowledged after a review.

I prefer Australia's system.  It is a punishable offense for NOT voting. If you are eligible, you vote or get fined.

Get sick?  The state can help.  If by help you mean kidnapping your family and throwing you in prison for no reason and keeping your lifesaving drugs from you.

Spending is growing without bound.
 
The U.S. government has proven itself perfectly capable of outspending the healthiest revenue stream it has ever seen.

TSA are child rapists.
 
According to an anonymous tip from a TSA employee from last November, a male TSA screener allegedly told a female colleague that he was able to fondle “attractive male passengers” that arrive at the screening area by having another employee deliberately input incorrect data into the scanning machines

Favorites shamelessly stolen from +Marcin Romaszewicz​:

Non-partisan — fervently prejudiced against everything except Republicans and Democrats


Honorable — any public figure who has not yet been indicted


Proof — allegations backed by campaign contributions


Election — when voters are permitted to freely consent to one of the two aspiring despots offered by the major parties


Law — Any hodgepodge of commands and special interest windfalls heaved together under a misleading title which is rubberstamped by Congress and fails to make five Supreme Court justices visibly retch


Anarchist — anyone who advocates across-the-board spending cuts of more than 3.63%


Historic — different than last week


Unprecedented — different than last month


Sovereignty — legal synonym for impunity
Having trouble with the 'Washingtonese' around April 15? Look no further for a translation.
