One of the terrible things about government seizure of education is the perversion of stats. Fore example, this study claims that class size doesn't impact quality of education. This is intended to prove that government shouldn't steal more from us to create smaller classes. To that extent, it's accurate, but it misses the bigger point. The problem isn't class sizes. It's government. Of course if a tutor had three students instead of six, the three would get a better education. But that's because the tutor would be paid by parents in a system of voluntary exchange. Class size doesn't matter when students are forced to enter class at the point of the government's gun and the money to pay the teacher is stolen from taxpayers. But it matters in an education system based on voluntary exchange.
The police have allowed Megaupload users two weeks to protect their data. That's like aliens giving humans two weeks to protect their memories.
What happens when countries try to protect their capital from marauding US rulers? The military needs a bigger bomb.
Obama admits he's killing people in Pakistan without a declaration of war with Congress, but he justifies the murders.
Everybody agrees that Iran is obeying the nuclear proliferation treating. Some claim the US government is not.
After all the corruption in the Iowa caucuses vote counting, the chairman of the Iowa Republican Party is forced to resign.
Ron Paul's caucus strategy is likely to win him more delegates that Gingrich and Santorum combined.
Florida is full of old people, so it's no surprise they voted overwhelmingly for the statist candidate Romney. People don't like change, and they will resist until outside forces force it upon them in destructive and painful ways. It's as mistake.
Call me jaded, but I'm not upset about a Gingrich aid supposedly stepping on the foot of a Paul supporter. Politics is about using violence to force your will on others. Anybody who thinks otherwise is a fool.
Lack of voter ID laws enable voter fraud. Imagine that.
Taxpayers win as cities cut back on stealing money from them and giving it to people who put on festivals. If the people want to pay for the festivals, they can do so voluntarily. I love festivals, and I'm willing to pay a little bit to attend them. Not necessarily the $10 City Folk is charging for a bunch of crappy music though.
We make fun of the Occupy thieves for wanting to seize the property of others, but we often forget that that is the only reason government exists. For example, local government want to seize three local properties. Here's the punchline:
"These properties were selected for the land bank because a developer, with a successful track record in Dayton, sees their potential, said Aaron Sorrell, the city’s director of planning and community development."Does anybody want to guess how much money this developer contributed to the campaigns of local politicians? Americans used to resist corruption. After a century of corruption and government control of schools, now Americans embrace it like they can't understand a better way.
