All I Want for Christmas is a (Real) Government Shutdown

Dec 16, 2014 No Comments by

The political class breathed a sigh of relief Saturday when the US Senate averted a government shutdown by passing the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill. This year’s omnibus resembles omnibuses of Christmas past in that it was drafted in secret, was full of special interest deals and disguised spending increases, and was voted on before […]

Am I The Only Techie Against Net Neutrality?

May 18, 2014 No Comments

by Joshua Steimle As near as I can gather, just about anyone who is steeped in technology is in favor of “Net Neutrality” legislation. I am no fan of Comcast or any other ISP I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with and I’m skeptical of large businesses generally and dislike being on their side, […]

FDA Caught Protecting Big Pharma from Whistleblowers

Mar 03, 2014 No Comments

By Lisa Rein and Ellen Nakashima The Food and Drug Administration may have violated the federal law protecting whistleblowers by monitoring the personal e-mail of its own scientists, congressional investigators conclude in a report that calls the two-year spying operation “excessively intrusive.” The findings, scheduled for release Wednesday by two top Republicans, suggest that the employees were monitored as part of […]

Why Won’t They Tell Us the Truth About NSA Spying?

Aug 04, 2013 No Comments

In 2001, the Patriot Act opened the door to US government monitoring of Americans without a warrant. It was unconstitutional, but most in Congress over my strong objection were so determined to do something after the attacks of 9/11 that they did not seem to give it too much thought.

A House Divided Over NSA Spying on Americans

Jul 28, 2013 No Comments

Last week’s House debate on the Defense Appropriations bill for 2014 produced a bit more drama than usual.

Sell Raw Milk? Go to Jail!

Feb 27, 2013 No Comments

While I oppose most gun control proposals, there is one group of Americans I do believe should be disarmed: federal agents. The use of force by federal agents to enforce unjust and unconstitutional laws is one of the major, albeit overlooked, threats to liberty. Too often Americans are victimized by government force simply for engaging […]

Left and Right Establishment Come Together on Secession: Shut Up About It!

Nov 22, 2012 No Comments

These days there has been a lot of talk of nullification – the refusal of a state to allow the enforcement within its borders of an unconstitutional federal law – and even secession. This is not allowed in the United States. We are supposed to let the New York Times dictate the terms of the […]
