If our founding fathers were writing the Constitution today, 75 would likely appear where 35 did and is.

My kindred spirits!
Across China, where new developments are keeping pace with the rapidly growing economy, reports continue to surface so-called "nail houses."

Wow. Guy's legally carrying a gun, shoots a would be mass killer, saving lives, and manages to only incapacitate the criminal without actually killing him. Oh, and he's an Uber driver. It's like the cosmic author was voting libertarian today.
Authorities ;say no charges will be filed against an Uber driver who shot and wounded a gunman who opened fire on a crowd of people in Logan Square over the weekend.

Seems like a good argument for more people to carry guns to me.

The government we have is indeed one of the manifestations of modern culture. So the obvious answer is, Yes! Of course!

"It's not a criminal charge not to listen to law enforcement," Swanton said regarding the restaurant's reluctance to help authorities, but he said the department will pursue any criminal charges they can related to the violence."

"TABC is implementing a Summary Suspension closing Twin Peaks for at least 7 days," the Waco Police Department said on its Facebook page. "This is not a punitive action on TABC's part but done due to the ongoing danger it presents to our community. They are conducting a parallel investigation and further action may be forthcoming."

Sure seems punitive. "Don't listen to us and we'll shut you down, but not punitively."

WACO — Sunday's deadly brawl at a Twin Peaks location in Waco could have been prevented by management at that restaurant, according to Waco police.

I'm watching this asshat live on CNN. He was just asked, "What lesson can other communities learn from this event." The answer? Best guesses!

Liberty leads to progress at a faster rate, just demands we be moral.

No! I am a libertarian because I am market orientated! That is why libertarians are referred to or call themselves anarchist! Because libertarians are market orientated and not government orientated!

When government plays the "Safety Card."

Watch out when folks play the “safety card.” Consider what we might lose in its pursuit.

When people ask, "Where did helicopter parenting (and helicopter policing of parents) come from?" I try to explain that part of the problem is this:

The More We Supervise Our Kids, the More We Believe They Need Constant Supervision. 

http://bit.ly/1D42t1b
One of the reasons many of us end up supervising our kids so much today is that when we DO watch our kids' every messy interaction, we see so much more than our own parents ever saw, and are shocked and dismayed. So we stay closer to monitor more, which means we see MORE frustrating-but-normal ...
