Why Isn't Dana Rohrabacher in Prison? posted 05/27/2014, 12:50 AM (William Norman Grigg)
[Category: Commentary]
If the United States Government were governed by the laws it makes for the rest of us, California Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher would be in prison. More specifically, he would be in open-ended military custody without judicial remedy of any kind.

Rohrabacher was among the 230 Congressmen who recently voted to preserve a measure permitting the indefinite detention, wit

[Category: Commentary]
Good for Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa for kicking USAID out of his country. If only every nation in the world would do that. While part of USAID’s activities ostensibly relate to helping “the poor,” that’s just a cover to disguise the real mission of the agency: to act in tandem with the CIA to engage in political activity designed to effect regime change in foreign countries....

A Rotten Criminal-Justice System posted 05/21/2014, 6:15 PM (Jacob G. Hornberger)
[Category: Commentary]
A good sign of a rotten criminal-justice system is the extent to which it is putting good, ordinary people into jail for inane criminal offenses while letting real criminals walk the streets free and carefree. Unfortunately, that is the type of system that now exists in the United States.

Recently, a man named Michael Steinberg was sentenced to 42 months in jail by New York City federal Judge Richard J. Sullivan. Steinberg is a former hedge fund trader on Wall Street. He and his w

The Myth of Overpopulation posted 05/12/2014, 2:59 PM (Logan Albright)

The world is overpopulated. The street are clogged, traffic is in a snarl, and people are living – both figuratively and literally – right on top of each other. There's hardly enough room to swing a cat these days, right? Wrong.

The world is not overcrowded at all. There are vast swaths of unpopulated land all over the place. Siberia, Canada, Africa, Australia, even the rural USA all contain more than enough wide open spaces. So why do people labor so resolutely under this delusio

A foreign policy driven by twitter and celebrity 'selfies' holding signs is an embarrassing disaster.

Pardon me, but I’m experiencing déjà vu with respect to Ukraine, specifically relating to the CIA.

Familiarity may indeed, as the saying goes, breed contempt, but it also breeds a sort of somnolence. People who have never known anything other than a certain state of affairs—even an extraordinarily problematic state of affairs—have a tendency not to notice it at all, to relate it, so to speak, as if they were sleepwalking through it.

Tax Day: What Kind of "Civilization" Are We Paying For? posted 04/14/2014, 7:34 AM (Kevin Carson)

April 15 seems to be a holiday of sorts for progressives, who inevitably trot out Oliver Wendell Holmes’s quote about taxes being “the price we pay for civilization,” and reminding us of all the great stuff — roads, schools, etc. — that they pay for.
