The Dollar Vigilante Kidnapped and Handcuffed in Palm Springs

Posted February 15th, 2012 by iamodd999

I swear, I do not try to attract the police but in the US it is nearly impossible to avoid... and if you don't smile and bow down they'll be on top of you in an instant. I and a TDV subscriber, decided to leave a bar, and were walking a few blocks to another place when a squad car pulled up and started shining its big, bright light at me. He immediately put me in handcuffs and the next thing I knew I was in the back of the squad car. I asked him what we had done and he told us that he kidnapped us because we had been drinking and were walking down the street.

Pro-Government Russian Scientists Stymied At New Rules, Centralization

Russian scientists are falling victim to their own antiquated notions of socialized, government-run science as Moscow demands that all its science arms be further unified under new rules and authority.

You'd think the world's self-proclaimed richest country, with an agricultural sector heavily regulated to secure Norwegian self-sufficiency of food, would never experience shortages. Wrong. Right now, we are experiencing a butter shortage in Norway. Dwindling milk production due to over-regulated farmers throwing in the towel and increased demand of fatty foods due to the low-carb dieting fad has lead to a butter shortage. The farmers, whose income consists of 70% subsidies from the government, and whose production is regulated by quotas, cannot produce enough milk to satisfy demands.
