http://www.disinfo.com

The court system has spoken, and it says, if you’re not Christian, you’re not fit to be a parent. A divorced veteran in Indiana says he lost custody of his children, with a judge’s ruling explaining, “the father did not participate in the same religious training as the mother…father was agnostic.”

Valedictorian speaks out against schooling

http://blog.swiftkickonline.com

Last month, Erica Goldson graduated as valedictorian of Coxsackie-Athens High School. Instead of using her graduation speech to celebrate the triumph of her victory, the school, and the teachers that made it happen, she channeled her inner Ivan Illich and de-constructed the logic of a valedictorian and the whole educational system.

After keeping us waiting a century, Mark Twain will finally reveal all

http://www.independent.co.uk

The great American writer left instructions not to publish his autobiography until 100 years after his death, which is now. -- As one of my friends over on Facebook commented, "I don't know which fascinates me more, his libertarian political views or his friendship with (Nikola) Tesla. I hope we get to see more about both."

Want to get rich? Work for feds

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com

For decades, public sector unions have peddled the fantasy that government employees were paid less than their counterparts in the private sector. In fact, the pay disparity is the other way around. Government workers, especially at the federal level, make salaries that are scandalously higher than those paid to private sector workers. And let's not forget private sector workers not only have to be sufficiently productive to earn their paychecks, they also must pay the taxes that support the more generous jobs in the public sector.

Libertarians lead Independent shift from Obama

http://www.politico.com

Who are these centrist, independent-minded voters who swung the elections in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts to Republican candidates and are likely to be crucial in races this fall?

Political analysts are searching for a name. They have tried “tea partier,” “populist,” “conservative,” even “strange and unpredictable.”

None of these fits, however.

These voters are neither populist nor conservative. But many may be libertarian — fiscally conservative but socially liberal or tolerant.

Prepare for what may the largest food recall in North American history

http://www.bloomberg.com

Salmonella contamination at a Nevada food-flavoring plant may trigger the recall of as many as 10,000 products, according to a Consumers Union scientist.

PepsiCo Inc. joined Procter & Gamble Co., Nestle SA and McCormick & Co. yesterday in recalling food containing hydrolyzed vegetable protein, or HVP.

To date, there are no known illnesses associated with the contaminated HVP, which is sometimes referred to as a “natural flavor” on ingredient labels

The State is Not Pro-Life

http://www.associatedcontent.com

To Grant Government More Power in the Hopes that it Will Defend Human Life is Foolish.

Health care? Abortion? War? The State, as an institution, is not pro-life in any way. It's a mistake to allow it more power in the hopes that it will defend life. A look at a few points within the U.S. Federal State will help bring this fact more clearly to home.

This article looks at 2 things:
1 - the government itself has stated that it has no responsibility to defend you
2 - politicians (even "pro-life" ones) do not have convictions, they only have platforms.

Officer Wesley Cheeks: "It ain't (America) no more, OK?" vid

http://canadafreepress.com

This video was taken on Tuesday, August 25th, 2009 at Rep. Jim Moran’s (D-VA) Town Hall meeting on Obama Deathcare (Howie Dean was there too) held at South Lakes High School in Reston, VA.

Many people were left outside when the school filled to capacity. School security officer Wesley Cheeks, Jr. did not like my anti-Obamacare poster which used one of the gone-viral “Joker” graphics.

When I said to Officer Cheeks, “This used to be America!” his response was: “It ain’t no more, OK?”

No, it’s not.
