The Capitol Circus

Here at Personal Liberty Digest™, we watch the Capitol Circus because we’re paid to do it. But even a casual glance Washington-ward reminds the most dispassionate observer that these guys are clowns. Unfortunately, they’re not the kind who make balloon animals and juggle milk bottles; they’re the kind who show up in Stephen King novels and live in a sewer.

The FDA’s War on Dietary Supplements

The United States Food and Drug Administration is trying to implement new guidelines that will effectively kill the nation’s supplement industry. The guidelines were reviewed by the Alliance for Natural Health, and the alliance determined them to be onerous and punitive.

The Assassination Of Old King Coal

Well, I certainly hope everyone is enjoying President Obama’s “Recovery Summer II — The Empire Strikes Out.” Unemployment hovers just below 10 percent. Of course, that’s the number the Department of Labor is willing to admit. Any economist outside the Department of Labor will acknowledge the real rate is closer to 15 percent.

The UPSA

How long before every aspect of government has its own police force? Apparently, we are nearly there, as an 83-year-old New York woman found out on June 25. On that day, Darbe Pitofsky threw a brown bag filled with old papers in a city litter basket — a crime for which a city sanitation worker wrote a summons.

The Barbecue Of Independence

This past Monday evening, I mused silently for a moment about the “reason for the season,” so to speak. Taking in the patriotic panorama around me, I couldn’t help but wonder: How many of these people have spent a single moment wondering why we’re not at work today?

Obama’s 2nd Amendment Assault

Senator Charles Grassley continues to peel back the layers of the U.S. inJustice Department’s conspiracy to send arms to Mexican drug dealers and use those gun sales as a pretext to impose stricter gun laws on the American people. Grassley has told news agencies that high-ranking Justice Department officials were briefed on Operation Fast and Furious and Operation Gunrunner as early as October 2009.

Lean Forward

To suggest President Barack Obama is thin-skinned is an understatement on a par with: “Michael Moore should cut back on the Ben and Jerry’s.” In fact, as our embattled President has watched events spiral well beyond his meager talents, he appears to be developing a mild case of paranoia — even lashing out at his friends.

Made Elsewhere? Everything But Corporatocracy

If there’s one thing President Barack Obama does well, it’s talk (as long as his teleprompter is handy). On Tuesday, Obama spouted more empty rhetoric from a manufacturing plant in Bettendorf, Iowa, when he said: “I want the cars and planes and wind turbines of the future to bear the proud stamp that says ‘Made in America.’”

Bienvenidos A Los Estados Unidos (Welcome To The U.S.)

I speak Spanish. Well, I speak high-school-distracted-by-the-hot-chick-in-front-of-me-in-class Spanish. As the Democratic-led U.S. Senate again tries to push through the amnesty-for-illegal-aliens DREAM Act, more and more often I’m noticing a sizable number of people who struggle with English the way I struggle with Spanish.

Texas Legislature Blinks

The Texas Legislature blinked Monday and passed a watered-down anti-groping bill that gives Transportation Security Administration agents carte blanche to continue groping travelers at Texas airports based on reasonable suspicion.
