Body scanners no threat to privacy, says U.K. parliament

http://www.latimes.com

"Air passengers already tolerate a large invasion of their privacy," the committee said in a report, citing pat-downs and bag searches as specific examples. "We do not feel that full body scanners add greatly to this situation."

The privacy fears raised by the deployment of full body scanners at airports are overblown, a committee of British lawmakers said Wednesday, adding that the technology was no more of a threat to passengers' rights than pat-downs or bag searches.

Great article about patriotism vs principles

http://freestudents.blogspot.com

Nationalism, or patriotism, are emotions I don't share. I find them on par with racism: the belief that one is inherently superior on the basis of the involuntary membership to some collective body. I also think that nationalism and patriotism are inherently against the fundamental principles that our nation was founded upon.

Calif. pot vote isn't just hippies versus cops

http://news.yahoo.com

SAN FRANCISCO — Now that a proposal to legalize pot is on the ballot in California, well-organized groups are lining up on both sides of the debate. And it's not just tie-dyed hippies versus anti-drug crusaders.........But the campaign that unfolds before the November election could yield some unusual allies: free-market libertarians joining police officers frustrated by the drug war to support the measure, and pot growers worried about falling prices pairing with Democratic politicians to oppose it.

Time Magazine - great article on agorism and kids dropping out of HS

http://www.time.com

I'm astounded that this article appeared in Time (or at least on their website). They rationally propose the fact that college might not be for everyone, as well as talk about the underground economy:

"Faced with the burden of financing the decades-long retirement of aging boomers, many of the young embrace a new underground economy, a largely untaxed archipelago of communes, co-ops, and kibbutzim that passively resist the power of the granny state while building their own little utopias."

There Is No Keynesian Miracle

http://www.forbes.com

Article in Forbes bashes Keynesianism for the fraud that it is: During 2009 there was a lot of smug talk among academic and political liberals of Keynesianism enjoying a triumphant revival. But in the real world of jobs, wages and production--as opposed to the imaginary one of the chattering classes--the evidence shows that John Keynes' notion of being able to spend your way out of recession has not worked this time, if it ever did. It's important to note that ordinary voters are more sharply aware of this idea's failure than are the Western governments that have put their trust in Keynes.

Bill Gates, Toshiba in early talks on nuclear reactor

http://news.smh.com.au

Toshiba may team up with Bill Gates to develop small nuclear reactors. The reactors could work for about 100 years without refueling. They could be launched fairly easily by states and cities.

I was pulled out of class for not saying the pledge of allegiance

I'm in 9th grade at Booker High School in Sarasota, FL. In my first period class every morning over the intercom a voice says "Now, Booker High students please stand for the pledge." Well my friend and I sat, and didn't say anything. We believe the pledge is a waste of time and we have a right not to stand because of our beliefs. My teacher saw us and told us to stand, but we refused. So he pulled my friend and I out of class and scolded us "Now, I don't care what you believe in!! It's school policy to stand! SO STAND." Well I have a right not to stand.

Is government at all levels falling apart?

http://www.americanthinker.com

Government services will be cut at every level. Potholes will deepen, infra-structure problems will worsen, pension plans will become insolvent, school systems will declare bankruptcy, police and fire protection will be reduced, etc. etc. You will be "nickled and dimed" in terms of new fees and taxes. Public unions will strike, providing further disruption. But when there are no funds, there is nothing to gain.
