Police Precautions

Saturday, September 30th, 2006

As I wrote about on my personal blog, last weekend myself and a friend were stopped on a curfew violation; the officer then made a rather harassing “joke” about me being a statutory rapist.

Saturday, September 30th, 2006

NY Times: write essay I very rarely agree with Democrats, but as the saying goes: a broken clock is right twice a day. “You don’t have to be a law enforcement or engineering expert to know that a 700-mile fence on a 2,000-mile border makes no sense,” said Senator Richard J.

The problem with moral arguments…

Saturday, September 23rd, 2006

Moral arguments invoke a worldview. Consequently, most moral arguments attempt to demonstrate that the worldview is internally consistent and valid. This is deep philosophical territory, and so most moral arguments try to get mileage by being simple. Unfortunately, one of the side effects of simplification is that the arguer is dismissed from questioning his worldview. […]

What Amendment Would You Repeal?

Thursday, September 7th, 2006

One of those questions that I think can give a clue into how people view government is to ask which Constitutional Amendment they would repeal, if given the chance. To most people, the first step would be the 16th Amendment, allowing an income tax. That’s a fair answer, but since it’s such a common answer, […]
