R.I.P. Royal Marshall

Long time producer of The Neal Boortz Show, Royal Marshall died this past Saturday at the age of 43. From Nealz Nuze: From Neal: There are no words available to express my personal sense of loss at the passing of Royal Marshall. It’s no stretch to say that I loved that man like he was [...]

TSA updates from people who opposed the TSA before opposing the TSA was cool

As Stephen Littau noted, November 24th (Wednesday) is the busiest travel date in the country and it’s also National Opt Out Day.  To assist Opt Out Day participants, and all air travelers after Wednesday, the Opt Out Alliance is providing free “Know Your Rights” travelers cards. I spoke with one of the key people at [...]

Which Superstition Would You Sacrifice?

I highly recommend XKCD, a webcomic devoted to romance, sarcasm, math and language. Today’s comic forces people to choose between attacking capitalism and their favorite superstition. Enjoy!

What if the Founding Fathers could have posted to Facebook?

Yesterday, Glenn Reynolds posted a link to a post over at Cool Material which, in a humorous manner, displays what might have happened if historical events had Facebook statuses. I had so much fun with the historical events graphic, I thought I’d take a stab at what some of the Founding Father’s posts might have [...]

I Scratch Your Back, You Give Me A Reach-Around

Who says government can’t coordinate their actions? Local governments, hard hit by the recession and a loss of tax revenue, are loosening restrictions at airports regarding the sale of liquor. This will help them better fleece serve travelers who just need a lil’ sumpin’ to take the edge off before they step foot on that [...]

Quote of the Day: Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider on Al and Tipper Gore’s Marriage Woes

“Let’s cut to twenty-five years later, I’m still married – none of my kids have been busted for drug possession. Can Al and Tipper Gore say the same thing? I don’t think so – oh, snap!” — Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider We’re not gonna take it, No, we ain’t gonna take it We’re not [...]

The TSA Napoleon Complex

When I thought of all the ways the TSA body-scanning machines could end badly, surprisingly I didn’t hit on this: A Transportation Security Administration screener is facing an assault rap after he allegedly beat a co-worker who joked about the size of the man’s genitalia after he walked through a security scanner. The May 4 [...]

US Skier Lindsey Vonn Loses Gold Medal

Obama Infuriates Middle-School Public Speaking Teachers Nationwide

Wherein, he uses a teleprompter to address 6th-graders: Now, I don’t know about you, but when I took public speaking classes in middle school and high school, there was one rule — don’t sit there and read straight from your notes. What’s next, he’s going to go into their algebra classes with a TI-89 graphing [...]

How Obamacare Will Cost-Control

From Ezra Klein, remarking on the major cost-control move found at the end of Bush’s term: People don’t bring this up very much, but one of the best ways to control costs in health care — or any private sector, really — is to have a huge recession. High taxes, high government deficits, dollar devaluation, [...]

Quote Of The Day

A [previously unpublished] letter to the editor in the UK Daily Telegraph: SIR – I find it intensely humiliating to be asked by airport security staff if I have packed my own bag. This forces one to admit, usually within earshot of others, that I no longer have a manservant to do the chore for [...]

Liberty Rock Friday: “Land of Confusion” by Genesis

I’m actually surprised that it hasn’t occurred to me to post “Land of Confusion” for Liberty Rock sooner. This is a great song with a great message that seems perhaps even more appropriate now than its original 1986 release. The song raises questions in my mind such as: Who is ultimately responsible for this land [...]

Off Topic – Halloween Humor

I’ve been looking for a reason to share this video for a long time. Why? Because its one of the funniest videos I’ve seen on YouTube for awhile. Yeah, I realize that this video has little to nothing to do with the theme or purpose* of The Liberty Papers but sometimes a little humor can [...]

Street Value

Uh-oh: Last week the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that bong water is an illegal drug. Under state law, a controlled substance includes any “mixture” containing that substance, “regardless of purity.” The consequences of reading that definition literally can be severe. In the case before the court, a woman whose bong contained 37 grams of water [...]

A symbolic victory in a sea of defeats

The governator sent a letter to the California State Assembly where he, er, told them he would “strike” them. Carnally. To the Members of the California State Assembly: I am returning Assembly Bill 1176 without my signature. For some time now I have lamented the fact that major issues are overlooked while manyunnecessary bills come [...]
