McCain And Gang Tweet Immigrant’s Pain, Gold Can’t Save You?, Mainstream Media=Robot Reporting, Dodgeball Breeds Psychopaths, Snail Sex Is Worth Your Money : Thursday Morning News Roundup 3-28-2013

March 28, 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.

  • Gang-of-Eight RINO John McCain hung out around Nogales, Ariz., and allegedly watched someone try to scale an 18-foot border fence into the United States. He allegedly took a picture Johnny-on-the-spot, tweeted it and then tweeted again that the poor soul allegedly had been caught.

 

  • Global bank larceny has gotten so out of hand that financial seer Marc Faber is now warning investors not even gold will suffice as a haven to abide the coming meltdown. “My concern is that we are going to have a systemic crisis where it is going to be very difficult to hide,” Faber explains. “Even in gold. It will be difficult to hide.”

 

  • Finally, they’re carrying one of the de facto truths of mainstream media to its logical conclusion: Computers are starting to robo-report the news in place of mainstream media journalists. The Los Angeles Times is doing it (though another paper, of course, reported the story.) May the droids fare better.

 

  • A local school board in New Hampshire is getting tough on dodgeball and other “human target” recreational mainstays. Drawing a line between the childhood staple and bullying, aggression and violent tendencies that carry over into adulthood, the board voted to ban the playground and street games — over the opposition of some parents who called the vote a “nanny state” move.

 

  • Priorities: The University of Iowa is spending nearly 1 million Federally awarded dollars to study whether New Zealand mud snails get anything more than kids out of having sex. It’s been ongoing since 2011; but, you know, with snails, these things take time.

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.
