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 sequester happened; now the government will be crippled and all hell will break loose. Actually, Federal agencies posted 400 job openings on Monday.


  • Also, on the eve of sequestration, the Transportation Security Administration sealed a $50 million deal to purchase new uniforms for its agents.


  • Agents of the Secret Service charged with protecting America’s elected royalty also will not be cut.



  • Oh, by the way, tax revenues are also expected to hit record highs this year at around $2.7 trillion. Still think lack of money is the government’s problem?


  • Lawmakers in Colorado tired of cops shooting innocent dogs all of the time will introduce a bill requiring all law enforcement to take dog encounter training.


  • In Britain, universal healthcare has evidently had a negative impact on the overall health of the population; early death and disease are on the rise.
