Killing Americans, Big Sis For President, A North Korean Attack Fantasy And The Coming Pot Tax: Tuesday Morning News Roundup 2-5-2013

February 5, 2013 by  

Here is a collection of some of the stories that Personal Liberty staffers will be keeping an eye on throughout the day. Click the links for the full stories.

  • The Department of Justice’s white paper that outlines the Barack Obama Administration’s justification for ordering targeted drone strikes against American citizens has been leaked. Read it here.
  • North Korea has released a creepy video of a fantasy missile attack on an unnamed U.S. city. The video is set to the music of Michael Jackson’s peace anthem “We Are The World.” Did we mention it’s creepy?
  • If you thought you were in bad financial shape, consider this: The Zimbabwean government announced that it has just $217 in the bank. Of course, there’s a story (rather, a cautionary tale) behind that. Zimbabwe is a classic example of how fiat money can cause rampant hyperinflation.
  • As States lighten up on their pot laws, the Feds are looking at plans to put a hefty tax on recreational weed. There is also talk about legalizing industrial hemp.
