Too. Fucking. Bad. Apple has recently presented its latest Mac OS X operating system for desktop and laptop computers, encouraging its customers to use FileVault disk encryption technology to keep their data secure. The tool would also prevent NSA or FBI from having access to phones and computers. Google said it wanted to follow suit […]

Fucking hypocrites all. Canning highlights the willingness with which many on either side change principles based on their preferred outcome. The whole practice of gaveling the Senate to order to prevent recess appointments was a Democratic innovation used expressly to screw over George W. Bush. Back then, Senate Republicans trotted out what came to be […]

The left would be hurling Molotov cocktails nationwide if it had been the Shrub who had ordered attempted an assassination of an American citizen without due process. There would be cries that he’s a war criminal, and that impeachment is necessary in order to protect America. That the president feels he has the authority to […]

According to the government, if you show visibly that you hold the TSA and their procedures in contempt, it’s likely because you’re a terrorist. Or something. CNN: Don’t like the way airport screeners are doing their job? You might not want to complain too much while standing in line. Arrogant complaining about airport security is […]

Here in America, we have principles. Principles like a free media, unbiased by not receiving funding from the government. Oh, wait. No we don’t. Two mainstream news organizations are receiving hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars from Obamacare’s Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP) — a $5 billion grant program that’s doling out cash to companies, […]

Apologizing for Freedom

Though I don’t at all condone the idiocy that is the burning of a Koran by Florida lunatic pastor Terry Jones, I will absolutely defend his right to have done it. Freedom of Speech is a cornerstone of not only democracy, but of our republic. It’s the first fucking right mentioned in the Bill of […]

In the event that anyone just can’t fathom why civil libertarians have a general dislike for cops and their authoritarian culture, peruse down to Police Link’s article concerning a girl who was detained for recording the police in a public space and take a gander at the comments. Some fine examples from our esteemed law […]

Kenneth L. Wainstein, a former Assistant Attorney General: So long as that person has expressed an interest in committing a crime, it’s appropriate for the government to respond by providing the purported means of carrying out that crime so as to make a criminal case against him. How the fuck is the government providing the […]

Expert Opinion

Obama notes that the new TSA molestation of all flyers is necessary, and that they are the most effective means of protecting Americans, stating that it is the advice of “experts” which lead him to institute the new search policies. I wonder if those best means of identifying potential terrorists as stated by the “experts” […]

Can We Stop Pretending?

Can we stop pretending that our government gives a shit about the Bill of Rights? President Obama on the TSA’s new screening procedures: But at this point, TSA in consultation with counterterrorism experts have indicated to me that the procedures that they have been putting in place are the only ones right now that they […]

Progressive Statist: The Citizen’s United decision is the beginning of the end of our democracy! It allows corporations and stuff to say things about my fellow progressives. That is except when my side does it.

I Was Just Following Orders

Some statist shit eater at The Washingtonian in defense of those who carry out the new TSA molestation security procedures: Cute as Goldberg probably thinks his suggestion is, it’s worth remembering a couple of things. TSA screeners are more vulnerable than most federal employees. Unlike their counterparts elsewhere in the civil service, the agency’s employees […]

If a TSA screener starts to fondle your shit, punch that motherfucker.

Ron Paul in his response to the TSA’s new protocol of sexual assault and molestation: My legislation is simple.

Downright Sexual Assault

More outright sexual assault by TSA screeners. PrisonPlanet: The TSA’s invasive new screening measures include officers literally putting their hands down people’s pants if they are wearing baggy clothing in a shocking new elevation of groping procedures that have stoked a nationwide revolt against privacy-busting airport security measures. If a security goon puts his hands […]

A Crossroads

One idea that I’ve espoused since the beginning of the newfound limited government movement from the right is that so-called conservatives will come to a crossroads; a point at which they must decide what is more important: small government and individual liberty, or the enforcement of their moral agenda. Fortunately, it seems that some conservatives […]
