Montana Polygamy and Reason Magazine’s Social Nihilism

Libertarians who act like Montana polygamy is something to celebrate are showing they have an agenda and ideology that goes far beyond their stated political theory. I think people should be free from political coercion to smoke tobacco if they want to do so. I think people should be free to own and possess firearms. That doesn’t mean I would post news of an increase in lung cancer as great news that more people are using their freedom. If there were more guns accidentally fired in homes Read more […]

ACLU Switches Sides on Religious Freedom because “Gay Marriage”

Religious freedom is no longer of value to the ACLU because they have a political war to wage against Christians. I saw this story over the weekend, when it first broke, but didn’t have time to write about it. I was gratified yesterday to see the Libertarian publication Reason put this headline on it: “The ACLU Now Opposes Religious Freedom Because Christians Need It.” And they added this tagline: “The Sometimes Civil Liberties Union.” I was relieved because Reason has an unhealthy Read more […]

Reason Magazine Sold Out to Trannies Years Ago

The Editor in Chief of Reason Magazine is pretty upset with conservatives pointing out liberal hypocrisy about transgender. Here’s the thing about gender and race: If anything is a social construction rather than a fact of nature it is race. If you lined up everyone from darkest to lightest, or by some other physical feature, you wouldn’t get all the African Americans on one side and all the Anglo-Saxon on the other. There would be no cutoff point. Race is a fiction as far as biology is concerned. That’s Read more […]

Good News: Supreme Court Decided in our Favor, 5-4; Bad News: We’re Still Hostages to Nine People

Two pieces of good news from the Supreme Court came out today, thought they made it by a small majority—they were not the 9-0 decisions we have seen recently. First of all, the Hobby Lobby case was decided in Hobby Lobby’s favor. The government cannot force Hobby Lobby to fund “contraceptives” and, really, abortifacients and abortions. I am happy to report that my cynicism about this case has been disproven! But this victory, as important as it was, and as grateful as we should be Read more […]

Americans Believe That Politicians Are Mostly Corrupt

Reason.com reports: Americans don’t paint a pretty picture of their public servants in the new national Reason-Rupe poll. Americans tell Reason-Rupe that 75 percent of all politicians are “corrupted” by campaign donations and lobbyists.  And they say 70 percent of politicians use their political power to help their friends and hurt their enemies. No wonder just 17 percent approve of the job Congress is doing.  Or that President Obama’s approval rating is just 43 percent, with 51 percent Read more […]

ReasonTV: Feinstein Is REALLY Ironic

The main problem with Alanis Morissette’s song, “Ironic,” is that there is nothing ironic in the lyrics. Thanks to ReasonTV and Dianne Feinstein, that has now been fixed. A Senator lady Got the news one day The country’s being spied on by the NSA So she went out defending on each TV set but when she found out she’d been snooped on she got all upset And isn’t it ironic? I mean, don’t you think? […] Senator, this may surprise you and the irony bites but Congresspeople ain’t Read more […]

Time to Kill the Department of Homeland Security?

Just over a year after the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, President George W. Bush created the Department of Homeland Security.  The goal was to centralize those departments and agencies that dealt with our domestic security. Many argue that America’s shores are much safer now than they were, but at what cost?  Are we really getting our money’s worth by keeping this mega-department?  Nick Gillespie of Reason.com offers up three reasons to kill the Department Read more […]
