Cutting foreign aid: Smart and safe

"Neoconservative (and leading Rand Paul critic) Jennifer Rubin's latest attack on Senator Paul centers on Senator Paul's proposal to end foreign aid. Most of her article is filled with the same old cliches supporters of a constitutional foreign policy are used to hearing: foreign aid is 'small' part of the federal budget (as if that somehow justifies not cutting it), and that cutting foreign aid will somehow weaken our defenses. But this part of her article really struck me ..." (10/22/14)  

Supreme Court shirks responsibility in avoiding Sixth Amendment case

"Jones, a constitutional criminal procedure case, was the court’s latest big 'decision not to decide.' The issue there was whether a defendant can be sentenced for conduct of which he was acquitted, based on facts that the judge determined. (Read that sentence again; I’m not making this up.)"

North Korea: US must apologize to free detainees

Northwest Indiana Times    

"The United States government must make a formal apology to secure the freedom of two Americans who remain imprisoned in North Korea after the release this week of Jeffrey Fowle, North Korean legal experts said Thursday. Although North Korea released Fowle, getting Matthew Miller and Kenneth Bae out of prison will likely require an official statement of apology and formal request for their release from Washington, according to the two North Korean law experts who spoke to The Associated Press."

The challenges of defending your child’s mind from propaganda

"Let's face it, your child’s mind is fertile ground for oligarchs, corrupt politicians and any other thieving member of the so-called 'ruling elite' who aim to enslave the masses both mentally and monetarily. Unfortunately, the propaganda that comes from the government and our largest corporations is perceived as being absolute truth by most people. If you’re like me, at one point in time you had to wake up to it all and accept that you had been completely brainwashed for the first few decades for your life." (10/23/14)

"Here is a snapshot of the future: the present vector of violence by the police state will increase and they will start pushing the wrong folks the wrong way or more significantly the tens of thousands of woman and children ravaged by frightened cops will have male relatives who discover a pair and decide to remedy the dishonor visited on their family by the cold institution of restitution of blood. Frein is simply a symptom of a broader future trend." (10/22/14)

The least important election of your lifetime

by Fred L. Smith, Jr.   Competitive Enterprise Institute

"The November midterm elections are around the corner and as usual, the airwaves are filled with frenzied appeals to vote for one candidate or another and reminding us of the unusual importance of this particular election -- the latest 'most important' election in a long list that already includes almost every national election in recent history. Pardon me if I tune it all out. The truth is that this upcoming midterm election, for all of the breathtaking amounts of cash being poured into it, will likely change very little in Washington."
