“Left-wing politicians take away your liberty in the name of children and of fighting poverty, while right-wing politicians do it in the name of family values and fighting drugs. Either way, government gets bigger and you become less free.”     Harry Browne

In Da News

by Stephen Gordon

Nanny state grows exponentially: Getting arrested for participating in a snow ball fight.

From the No Shit Sherlock Department: People are actually more concerned about the economy than global warming.

Paul Jacob is free, at last: “The right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances” is once again legal in Oklahoma.

Osama bin Laden’s “success:” American economy in disarray.

Stale political arguments (you know, like about the size and scope of government) no longer apply: Tim Carney wants to ask President Obama some questions.

A bit on the weird side: Man punished for abandoning rats.

More from the weird side: Dems pick a gun-loving, bailout-hating woman to replace Hillary.

Are we considered a socialistic country yet: The nationalization of major banks.

Barack Obama believes in big government; Ron Paul doesn’t.

Here’s a big shocker: The drug war doesn’t work.

Obama gives civil libertarians some hope during his first week of office and Bob Barr says thanks.

Was Ayn Rand a prophetess? Atlas Shrugged wasn’t fiction after all.

Finally, if this doesn’t piss you off, nothing will:

Phillips is being held on $15,000 bond, and he has no history of arrests in Anderson County.

Fuller is being held on $10,000 bond, and has a history of domestic violence charges, resisting arrest and evading arrest. He has also been charged several times for violation of probation and failure to appear in court.

Fuller is accused of multiple counts of auto burglary. Phillips is accused of using a firearm to stop Fuller from stealing cars. And they set a higher bond for Phillips than for Fuller?
