• The U.S. has already killed 35 people in drone strikes this year.
  • New York City’s vile “Stop and Frisk” policy takes a Constitutional hit. 
  • Dad raised me on “don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good” (Lew Rockwell weeps) but Glenn Beck relaunching The Blaze as some global libertarian news network? I want this to be good, but I have some huge doubts.
  • By comparing libertarian men to toddlers, David Frum insulted some of the best men I know, as well as a hell of a lot of generally cool dudes. Megan McArdle, being married to a sweet libertarian guy, has some words to say about that.
  • Because. David. Frum. Is. Wrong. About. Everything.
  • Yep. “It may be that some women don’t stamp themselves libertarian because they worry it’ll make them a social outcast or they don’t want to enter a political leaning that can resemble a frat house. But for many of us, the problems are philosophical to begin with. We just don’t agree.”
  • Re totalitarianism and guns: I feel like the truth lies somewhere between Drudge and Moynihan.
  • The age of consent is certainly debatable, but Rush Limbaugh is being his usual asshole self by comparing normalization of gay marriage to the current, supposed normalization of pedophilia. 
  • Alex Jones is bad for libertarianism and I still like him.

    That article on women is a good one. I still consider myself libertarian but it certainly sums up why I don’t frequent Reason or other similar places anymore.

      I have a fondness for the Hit and Run rabble, but my God are they awful much of the time. But not to me, somehow.

        You are just too magnetic for them to resist.

          Or! They were too ashamed to be gross about me once they realized I read the comments.

            Though they are pleased to be gross to Actual Fellow Commenters. So I’m guessing it’s your innate awesomeness.

    libertarians are the new type of fasicts theyre the craziest hypocrates ever. so clearly contradictly.. competition and money is the worst thing ever invented … we need a resourced based economy like the venus project and not a competition of property, money and weath which it is in every monetary system just with other variations!

      You had me at “libertarians are the new types of fascists.” And by had me, I mean I had no interest in what you have to say.
