The Cruel Irony of Political Libertarianism posted 11/01/2010, 5:11 PM (Ross Kenyon)
[Category: Commentary]
Thomas Paine wrote — probably to annoy me — that “those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” With the American midterm elections this week, I find myself pensively reflecting on the cruel irony of being a political libertarian. There appears to be a direct correlation between how radical one’s libertarian sentiments are and the amount of resentment felt by being ensnared by American democracy.

Libertarians are nonaggressive and essentially want to be left alone. They don’t (or shouldn’t) seek to hurt or exploit anyone. I personally would like to live in peace with all people and trade. I respect the labor of others in the hopes that they might too respect mine. We libertarians have lives we enjoy leading; friends and family to do things more fun than politicking with, music to create, wilderness to explore, a whole world of delights waiting, and some of us even enjoy moving our bodies rhymically to well-ordered sounds. We would surely all choose such activities, full of spunk and life, over participation in the jaundiced political nightmare we are currently faced with, but alas, we are not permitted to escape the fatigue of supporting our philosophy.

Market anarchists envision a world without poverty or war, where individuals are not forced to subsidize the domination of one another, nor have our own lives paternalistically guided by bureaucrats, politicians, or generals, irrelevant of how they were placed in a position of political power.

This world is possible, and it isn’t really all that complex of an idea: there should be no arbitrary political boundaries and thus no forced collectivization. Political relationships should be based upon consent and problems resolved through decentralized common law negotiation amongst the affected parties, not non-refusable legislative representation based upon geographical lines.

The Libertarian Pledge to America posted 11/01/2010, 5:10 PM (Laurence M. Vance)
[Category: Commentary]
Just in time to bamboozle conservative voters before the election, House Republicans unveiled their "Pledge to America" at a hardware store in Virginia in late September. Although the Pledge contains libertarian rhetoric about promoting "greater liberty" and "smaller, more accountable government," the fact that Republicans promise to roll back spending only to the level it was during Bush’s last...

Can Liberty Be Advanced Through Violence? posted 11/01/2010, 5:10 PM (Butler Shaffer)
[Category: Commentary]
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

~ Albert Einstein

A Republican candidate running for Congress in Texas has set many minds and mouths atwitter with his suggestion that, should state tyranny ever become a problem in America that could not be resolved by political means, the use of violence, while "not the first option," would be "on the table." There is a deep-rooted frustration an

Lysander on Voting posted 11/01/2010, 5:10 PM (Butler Shaffer)

A reader sent me the following quote from the great Lysander Spooner:

“These voters, having given their votes in secret have put it out of your power to designate your principals individually. You have no legal knowledge as to who voted for you. And being unable to designate your principals individually, you have no right to say that you have any principals. And having no right to say that you have any principals, you are mere usurpers, making laws and enforcing them upon your own

The Cult Of Obama Crashes And Burns posted 11/01/2010, 5:10 PM (Prison Planet)

The image of one man begging on his knees as Obama’s convoy pulls away from a restaurant in Chicago yesterday speaks volumes about how far the man’s status has fallen in the eyes of everyday Americans.

Facing a midterm election defeat unparalleled by any other in history, Obama’s fall from grace represents the stark reality that the people are fuming that they allowed themselves to be sold on empty promises and outright lies.

Did Obama Order British Authorities To Find Non-Existent Ink Bomb? posted 11/01/2010, 5:10 PM (Prison Planet)
[Category: Cover-Up/Deceptions]
After having examined the suspicious ink toner device for six hours and found it to be a dud, bomb experts at East Midlands Airport only reversed their decision after being ordered to re-inspect the package by US authorities following President Obama’s Friday afternoon speech in which he claimed that the devices did in fact contain explosives.

This telling contradiction in the timeline of the cargo bomb plot fiasco proves that the story was being hyped and manipulated from t

Toner Bomb Plot Used to Empower CIA posted 11/01/2010, 5:09 PM (Prison Planet)

In addition to adding new urgency and a fresh dose of hysteria to the flagging war on manufactured terror, the toner bomb plot has provided an excuse to rationalize the global reach of the CIA.

"Officials said support was growing both within the military and the administration for shifting more operational control to the CIA -- a move that would allow the U.S. to strike suspected terrorist targets unilaterally with greater stealth and speed," reports the ... (more)

About a month ago, news broke that the feds were going to push for new legislation that would require wiretapping backdoors be put into all forms of internet communications. This is a bad idea for any number of reasons -- including the fact that this would make it much easier for others to spy on the communications of Ameri... (more)

Though a plea deal will cap the amount of time he serves at nine additional years, Toronto-born Gitmo child soldier Omar Khadr was sentenced to 40 years for “war crimes” related to allegations he may have been the one who threw a hand grenade during the Afghan War in 2002, killing a US soldier. The charges included “terrorism” and “spying.”

Gold Never Has Been (and Never Will Be) in a Bubble posted 11/01/2010, 5:00 PM (Daily Reckoning)
[Category: Economy]
Binghamton, New York – Most serious gold investors follow a basic principle: that gold is stable in value. Changes in the "gold price" represent changes in the currency being compared to gold, while gold itself is essentially inert.

This is why gold was used as a monetary foundation for literally thousands of years. You want money to be stable in value. The simplest way to accomplish this was to link it to gold. Today, we summarize this quality by saying that "gold is money."

Gold Will Outlive Dollar Once Slaughter Comes posted 11/01/2010, 5:00 PM (Bloomberg)

The world's monetary system is in the process of melting down. We have entered the endgame for the dollar as the dominant reserve currency, but most investors and policy makers are unaware of the implications.

The only questions are how long the denouement of the dollar reserve system will last, and how much more damage will be inflicted by new rounds of quantitative easing or more radical monetary measures to prop up the system.

Whether prolonged or sudden, the t

Why the Fed Will Be Dissolved Within Five Years posted 11/01/2010, 4:59 PM (Seeking Alpha)

How’s that for a game changer?

In case you missed it, the #1 news story for this week (and the year) was the Fed’s decision to ask its Primary Dealers (PDs) for suggestions on how large and how long QE 2 should run.

The implications of this are vast. But the biggest ones are:

1) The PDs OWN the Fed (not the other way round)

2) QE 2 is a definite, not a “maybe”

3) The Fed doesn’t know what it’s doing

NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Fluoride consumption from tea and toothpaste damaged a woman's bones, report researchers in Osteoporosis International published online October 9, 2010.

Fluoride, added to water intending to reduce tooth decay, accumulates in and can weaken bones. To prevent bone damage or skeletal fluorosis, in 1986 EPA set 4mg/L as water fluoride's maximum-contaminant-level. In 2006, the National Research Council reported that 4 mg/L is too high
