"America is finally starting to pay the price for its broken corporate tax regime. The recent increase in so-called tax inversions, in which American corporations seek lower tax rates via mergers with companies based in foreign countries. Tax inversions result in American firms effectively becoming foreign businesses, something many politicians on the left have come to fear and despise. At least 47 American tax inversions have occurred in the last decade, but it was not until this month that they started making serious headlines." (08/28/14)

"Iceland raised its alert warning level to maximum on Friday after what it called a small eruption in the Bardarbunga volcano system but said there was no sign of ash that could affect air travel in Europe. Reykjavik's Meteorological Office said that a fissure eruption began in a lava field north of the Vatnajokull glacier, which covers part of Bardarbunga system, just after midnight local time. The risk of an ash cloud is highest in case of a sub-glacial eruption." (08/29/14)

States, cartels and the anarcho-capitalist opposition

"The anarchist, having established that the state is a war on and the principal obstacle to a free and peaceful society, suggests the 'utopian' notion of simply not permitting a glorified mafia to prey on the innocent. Anarchism, therefore, is hardly a provocative, pie in the sky notion, and is hardly the straw man put up by its statist opponents. Neither is it advocacy for chaos and lawlessness, which much better describe a system in which justice is meted out arbitrarily and unevenly, in which American citizens can be murdered without due process, and constitutional protections reveal themselves as the impotent parchment guarantees they are."

Halbig v. Burwell: A technicality could change your life

"The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA or Obamacare) became law in early 2010. Arguably, it is the single greatest assault on the right of individuals to control their own bodies that America has seen in decades. Few matters are more intimate than medical choice; it includes decisions about giving birth, having sex and the time to die. Obamacare is a Kafkaesque mass of regulations that usurp these choices in the guise of providing them. Obamacare nationalizes the body of every American and assumes the power to determine life or death." (08/28/14)

Protecting us from umbrellas and cameramen

"No reports of shots fired. Only ONE of the thousand cell phones on campus indicated threatening behavior. Just one caller who saw a man carrying what might be a rifle … or a stick … or a broom … or … an umbrella on a day when it just might rain. So one looney can call out an entire swat team with no corroborating evidence, no investigation, no scouting party. That is much like the community fire departments sending out every truck and team in the county to find it is just a back yard barbeque happily, innocently grilling burgers. At least when the firemen arrived, they wouldn’t hose down the neighborhood." (08/27/14)
