‘Super Epic’ Tweet of the Day

There’s some really great tweets about Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster. So far, this is my favorite:

Top 10 Libertarian Pickup Lines

Some much needed levity from “Libertarian Girl” in the spirit of Valentine’s Day.

Top 10 Libertarian Pickup Lines

10. “I’d like to indefinitely detain you.”

9. “I only practice the non-aggression principle outside the bedroom.”

8. “Wanna Lysander Spoon?”

7. “I want the government out of my bedroom, but you in it.”

6. “I’m an economist, you’re an economist. How about a little horizontal integration?”

5. “So you were the one responsible for the ‘Occupy My Mind’ movement last night.”

4. “Unlike fiat money, you’re worth something to me baby.”

3. “I’m not Keynesing you, I really want to liberate your Hayek and Rothbard your Mises.”

2. “Is that a stimulus package in your pants or are you just happy to see me?”

1. “My love is like communism: everyone gets a share and its only good in theory.”

Dr. Ben Carson Speaks Truth to Power

Until yesterday, if someone asked me what I thought about Dr. Ben Cason, I would have had no idea who you were talking about. After listening to his speech (below) from the National Prayer Breakfast from a few days ago with President Obama just a few feet away, I thought this speech was too good not to share.

As an atheist, there were obviously some points I disagreed with. Theological disagreement notwithstanding, overall there was a great deal of wisdom in what he had to say about history, political correctness, personal responsibility, morality, education, healthcare, the national debt, and the tax code. There was easily more intelligent ideas being spoken here than last night’s State of the Union.

If you don’t watch any other part of this speech, start watching around the 18 minute mark where Dr. Carson talks about the immorality of class warfare the progressive tax code and watch the president’s face (spoiler alert: he doesn’t seem too amused). I honestly don’t know how this guy got in the room, much less had the opportunity to speak!

‘Wendy’ Condemns Chick-fil-A President Remarks On Gay Marriage

Caught this across the wire today:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Wendy’s Spokeswoman ‘Wendy’ Stands With Gay Marriage Supporters

Dublin, Ohio, July 25 2012: Wendy’s corporation found Dave Thomas believed in treating all people, customers, employees, and vendors with the utmost respect. As the woman you see on the sign and in the logo of Wendy’s, it is my belief that Dave would, as I do, support the rights of same-sex couples to marry.

Being ginger, I have faced discrimination my entire life. I’ve been called “firecrotch” and “carrot top”, have endured countless barbs from people such as “you’d better get out of the sun, ginger”, and “they don’t make an SPF high enough for you.” Growing up different from your peers is hard, and when you’re already a cartoon likeness of a human being, to know that you’re a cartoon minority is itself an added struggle.

On behalf of the entire Wendy’s organization, I would like to express our solidarity with all minorities, and our firm commitment to stand beside you as you fight for equality. I would condemn other fast food chains, whether it be their company President or their chicken-hating cows, who would not offer you the same respect.

At Wendy’s, we believe that all loving couples should be afforded the same rights — the right to marry and all the legal protections that accompany the institution. We live in a nation that trumpets freedom and individual rights. It’s time to ensure that we live up to the values we espouse. Besides, I’ve got my eye on that chick from Brave. Rawr!

In addition to her role as corporate mascot, Wendy has been a tireless supporter of minority rights and equality since she was first drawn in 1969.
