Dear Federal Government: Go To Hell

Almost everyone I know has written a letter to the Federal government. They’ve contacted their Representatives or Senators at some point. They’ve emailed, faxed or even called — asking, demanding or just plain begging these politicians to do something or not. I never have. Why? Because I believe it is an absurd idea to ask the Federal government to fix problems it created, and that doing so just doesn’t work.

Obama’s Approval Rating Only 19 Percent

On Wednesday, the newest results from a Rasmussen telephone poll show President Barack Obama’s approval rating at only 19 percent and Congressional approval at only 6 percent, as the public, according to the organization, focuses heavily on the economy.

The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What’s Wrong With America by Nick Gillespie and Matt Welch

It’s an old political axiom that to win a national election a candidate has to target the independents. Each candidate is guaranteed a certain percentage of votes from his political party’s faithful, but it’s the remainder of the voting public that swings the election to one candidate or the other.

Increasingly, the independents, often inaccurately called by the media moguls and political pundits “moderates,” are feeling more and more disaffected. In recent national elections they have swung back and forth as they sought the candidate that would best fulfill their hopes and dreams. Increasingly, they are disappointed and feeling disaffected that it seems that no matter which way they vote, they continue to get what they got before. More and more, they are looking for a new way.

And they have come to realize, as the inside jacket cover of The Declaration of Independents puts it: “We are held hostage to an eighteenth-century system, dominated by two nineteenth-century political parties whose ever-more-polarized rhetoric masks a mutual interest in maintaining a stranglehold on power.”

In The Declaration of Independents, Nick Gillespie, editor of Reason.tv, and Matt Welch, editor of Reason magazine, point out a third way.

Family Tradition

The revelation earlier this week that Onyango Obama — likely the same “Uncle Omar” mentioned in President Barack Obama’s oddly premature memoir, Dreams from My Father — was arrested for DUI was just another chapter in Dreams, entitled: “Presidential relatives who were dumber than boxes of hair.”

Protester Allowed To Sue Airport Screeners

RICHMOND, Va. — A Virginia college student who stripped to a pair of running shorts to protest intrusive search procedures will be allowed to sue two airport screeners. A Federal judge in Richmond, Va., ruled Tuesday that the portion of Aaron Tobey’s lawsuit dealing with free speech rights can go forward, The Christian Science Monitor reported.

Alabama Immigration Law Temporarily Suspended

A Federal judge has blocked the enforcement of an Alabama immigration law as a temporary measure to prevent law enforcement officials from carrying out the legislation.

10 Years After

All right, Islamofascists, pay attention when I say 9/11 was a big moment. I’ll admit it: You cleaned our clocks. Your act of bloodthirsty savagery brought the world to a halt. Even the Japanese, who still think World War II ended badly, had to have been impressed. And you have certainly marked us up since then. However, to deploy some of that sports colloquia of which we Americans are so fond: Have you looked at the scoreboard lately? You blew it.

Obama Appoints New Economic Adviser

As the U.S. economy continues to be burdened by high numbers of unemployed, a public debt that has surpassed gross domestic product and economic policy that is dangerously close to causing an inflation crisis, President Barrack Obama has appointed a new economic adviser. Alan B. Krueger, an Ivy League-trained economist, will lead Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) if he is confirmed by the Senate.

Ron Paul Again Attacks Obama Foreign Policy

In a statement issued by 2012 GOP contender Ron Paul earlier this week, Paul attacked the Administration of President Barack Obama for its seemingly expanding imperialistic foreign policy in the Middle East following the announcement of a victory in Libya.
