Buffett Rule Dies, Online Illicit-Drug Retailer Taken Down, Canadians Won't Trade Liberty for (Promised) Security: P.M. Links

|

  • What do you say I just pitch an exhibition game for you and we call it a day?

    Say "goodbye" to at least one tax hike. The so-called "Buffett rule" failed to gather enough votes to break a Senate filibuster.

  • Tax freedom day — when Americans are done working just to pay for government — falls on April 17 this year. With taxmageddon approaching at the end of 2012, tax cuts are set to expire, pushing Americans to labor for government for another month.
  • Police working in several countries busted a sophisticated online retailer of your finer illicit intoxicants. Using the privacy-shielding Tor network, the business had catered to thousands of customers since 2006.
  • Jurors being screened for the perjury trial of Roger Clemens repeatedly challenged the wisdom of the congressional hearing at which Clemens allegedly lied, as well as the expense of prosecuting the baseball pitcher.
  • Escape-clause-laden their 30-year-old Charter of Rights and Freedoms may be, but Canadians in a recent poll voiced strong disagreement with the idea that they should sacrifice civil liberties in the name of the war on terror.
  • Former reporter alleges Albuquerque police seized a camera and deleted evidence of police brutality.

  1. Former reporter alleges Albuquerque police seized a camera and deleted evidence of police brutality.

    Pics or it didn’t happen.

  2. And now a word this “invalid comment” business. I, as well as many others here, are certified Hit & Run commenters, duly registered by Reason, on official commenting business. It is unacceptable that our comments be judged as valid or invalid by some rigid and seemingly arbitrary algorithm. Our words are our art.

    This. Will. Not. Stand.

    1. Is this soulless arbiter also swallowing links in comments? I miss my additional am/pm links with the am/pm links.

    2. and those of us who are NOT vulgar, profane, eStalkers, or post dubious links shouldnt have to suffer like teh [FOOLZ] who do whether certified, registered, or not. >mary stack is NOT the standard of blogging liberty

    3. As another officially registered Hit & Run commenter, I agree with the sentiment of this message in total.

    4. How odd. My comments never get marked as invalid. I guess reason just likes me more.

      1. You’re just using stolen blood to avoid being marked as invalid, Jerome.

        Or should I say Vincent?

        1. Not a Gattaca fan. At all.

          1. That’s because you’re genetically inferior. Above the chimpanzee but below the orangutan. Right about bonobo, I think.

            1. Bonobos are the sexy ones. Looks like I win again, ProL.

              1. Yes, Episiarch, you are a monkey that likes to have lots of sex. So, I suppose, you win something.

                Nick, tell Episiarch what he’s won.

                1. A rectal prolapse and a ball of copmacted vomit?

                  1. And the home version of Hit & Run!

                  2. But I already have those, Ska! I need something new!

                    1. I’ve got a copy of Urkobold: The Home Game, but I don’t think you’d like that one.

            2. Not a Gattaca fan. At all.

              Why? Not an Armani 2-button space suit kind of guy?

              1. Ignore him on this topic. He’s insane.

              2. Ignore him on this topic. He’s insane.

                  1. Your comment grows tiresome.

                    1. I got the “You’re spam!” message, apparently because of the double post and the attempt to comment on it (I originally said “Motherfucker!”).

                      But I’d be okay with that message also being, “Your comment grows tiresome.”

                    2. MOTHERFUCKER!

                      Hmmm, no problems here.

                    3. I don’t think the epithet triggered the SPAMGUARD. Rather, it was the three comments posted so rapidly.

      2. Episiarch|4.17.12 @ 4:47PM|#
        How odd. My comments never get marked as invalid. I guess reason just likes me more.

        its because the slime covering your comments allows them to slip through any potential barrier.

    5. Gentlemen, these documents all speak of rights. Rights of the accused to a trial by his peers, to be represented by counsel, the rights of cross-examination; but, MOST importantly, the right to be confronted by the witnesses against him – a right to which my client has been denied.
      Areel Shaw: Your Honor, that is ridiculous! We’ve produced the witnesses in court. My learned opponent had the opportunity to see them, cross-examine them…
      Cogley: All but one! The most devastating witness against my client is not a human being. It’s a machine, an information system – the computer log of the Enterprise – and I ask this court adjourn and reconvene aboard that vessel.
      Areel Shaw: I protest, your honor.
      Cogley: And I repeat, I speak of rights! A machine has none. A man must. My client has the right to face his accuser, and if you do not grant him that right, you have brought us down to the level of the machine! Indeed, you have elevated that machine above us! I ask that my motion be granted. And more than that, gentlemen – in the name of a humanity fading in the shadow of the machine – I demand it. I demand it!

    6. Yeah, what FOE said. Also the shameful removal of anonbot’s comments. This morning its comment was IIRC “Sometime you just need to say whoa WHOS [sic] YOUR DADDY”. If this eloquent and insightful comment can get deleted, who amongst us is safe?

    7. Fist of Etiquette|4.17.12 @ 4:20PM|#
      And now a word this “invalid comment” business….

      Yeah!? What the fuck? It’s the daily ‘links’ thread, and they don’t let me post no links?? (oh, sure, you *fancy lads* who know that whole HTML tagging BS and do it *proper* slide by, but noooo…. us Internet 1.0 cro-magnons who simply think cut-&-pasting is perfectly acceptable get hosed! I am outraged and indignant and take umbrage and all that shit. “INVALID”??? After half a year of failing to do anything about #($*@ White Indian’s nonsense, Reason has the nerve… THE NERVE.. to call ME?? MY POSTS!!>?! INVALID???? UNACCEPTABLE?? (slaps website in the face with kid-skin glove) PISTOLS AT DAWN SIR!!!!

        1. pppt. I kick shit old school.

  3. Remember that idiot who was calling Ron Paul supporters Nazis yesterday? She ended her congressional campaign today.

    1. Let me guess. She finally hired a campaign manager and his first and only piece of advice was “quit”.

      1. and another dominionist bites the dust. dont let the establishment clause hit ya on the way out…

    2. Wow I missed that. I like this from her, though:

      In Wikipedia, wearing a flag is a form of flag desecration. Wikipedia states the following:

      It is increasingly common to see clothing with the image of the flags forming a substantial part of the piece. Views vary as to whether some of this is an act of disrespect.

      Such actions may be undertaken for a variety of reasons:

      – As a protest against a country’s foreign policy.
      – To distance oneself from the foreign or domestic policies of one’s home country.
      – As a protest at the very laws prohibiting the actions in question.
      – As a protest against nationalism.
      – As a protest against the government in power in the country, or against the country’s form of government.
      – A symbolic insult to the people of that country.

      So it appears that this person was wearing the US flag in order to desecrate our flag.

      What impeccable fucking reasoning. Wikipedia, the all knowing, says that some people may wear a flag garment in protest so this person must be desecrating the flag! Does that mean Uncle Sam is a terrorist?

    3. She’s organizing a PAC of some sort.

      I recently founded Christian[s] United in Politics, although it is not yet fully operational. The purpose of this organization is toget people with the right values, conservative Christian values, to take leadership roles in political party(ies), run for and be electedto political offices of all levels, and back candidates who have the right values.

      1. Christian[s] United in Politics

        One gal, one CUP.

        1. Barfman to the white courtesy phone…

    4. I can sympathize with her complaint, if accurate, that she had to cut 2/3rds of her prepared speech down after watching her opponent get all the time he wanted. Voting to muzzle your opposition is not especially libertarian to me.

      Fuck the rest of her complaints though.

  4. On Monday, one potential juror said he felt “it was a little bit ridiculous” when Congress held hearings on drug use in sports because he felt the government should have been focusing on bigger problems. Asked whether he thought it was wasteful for Congress to hold the steroid hearings, he responded, “Yes.”

    Congress, taking it on the chin from Juror No. 11.

    1. Silly Juror, doesn’t he realize that steroids in baseball threatens are very lives and liberty and Congress just has to act or risk our entire society unraveling?

      1. Congressional subpeona is a wasteful, useless grandstanding exercise in 99% of the cases they use it. If it doesn’t involve government impeachment, it doesn’t belong in Congress. By now I think any reasonable person can see its just a way to score re-election points for sitting members.

        1. By now I think any reasonable person can see its just a way to score re-election points for sitting members.

          So, another problem that could be solved with term limits?

          1. Almost all societal ills can be fixed with term limits.

            Including syphillus

            1. All diseases can be cured with term limits. Surviving the term limitation is highly, highly unlikely.

              OBAMNEYCARE FTW!

      2. Not silly at all, as the comment will probably get him dismissed from the jury.

      3. Why do you want us to become Somalia? Without Congress getting involved in athletes taking steroids we’d be on the fast track.

  5. Food’s biggest scam American Kobe beef. Which, by part 3 builds into a fairly good indictment of government IP. (Diagnosis correct, solution wrong)

    1. Pretty sure injecting high pressure fluid into rock formations is going to induce seismic activity. Remember that the scale is logarithmic. A 7.0 is 1000 times bigger than a 4.0 which is 1000 times bigger than a 1.0. Are we talking 1.0 or 7.0 from fracking?

      1. It all seems kind of bunk if you ask me:

        The consultants’ report, commissioned by the U.K. government and published on Tuesday recommends that fracking should be halted temporarily if there is a tremor greater than magnitude 0.5 on the Richter scale.

        I’m no big-city geologist (*gasp*), but a 0.5 is like stamping your foot hard.

        1. many slight muscle twinges have resulted from these 0.5 richter earthquakes.

          Are you for slight muscle twinges!?!?!

          1. I’ve had farts that registered 1.5.

    2. correction – injection wells (near faults), not fracking per se, has caused earthquakes in OK, MI, OH & the UK.

      1. oops – make that “wastewater injection wells”…

      2. So the injection wells are releasing the tension in the faults a little at a time rather than a natural, single catastrophic release. Win/win.

    3. Fracking causes earthquakes, studies confirm.

      So when do we weaponize this?

      1. I’m working on getting it into a drone.

    4. I could swear I read something that said these claims were totally bogus.

      1. I would have a really hard time believing that there wasn’t some stress/strain shifting going on at the injection sites. However, having been through numerous “earthquakes” in Costa Rica that failed move anything more than the fluid in my inner ear just enough to be disturbing, I’m not at all skeptical that there is noticeable seismic activity nor do I fear that this seismic activity will lead to property damage or Superman III style chasms opening beneath the feet of innocent Okies/Brits/Michiganders.

        1. I think what I read–maybe in Popular Mechanics?–said that the effects couldn’t be more than nominal, given the energies involved. Can’t really remember.

          1. OMNI magazine circa 1978. They looked at the possibility of injection wells along the San Andreas fault to trigger more frequent but smaller earthquakes.

            1. Yeah, well, I’m thinking I read the article in the last few months.

              1. Very likely – but it just goes to show you that this ain’t exactly cutting edge science. Did I mention that OMNI thought triggering small earthquakes was a good thing?

            2. You read OMNI back in the day?

              LOL

  6. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWUV6Hl-pNw

    Anybody else (not) dig Jamie Kilstein?

    Either way, enjoy.

    1. If you put on the glasses, you can almost make out the LAUGH sign behind him.

      1. Not this year.

        1. PUT ON THE FUCKING GLASSES.

          Cripple fight!

          1. Amazon Prime has that movie in the free queue. Need to watch soon.

    2. It wasn’t polite of those students to laugh at that teaching assistant’s lecture.

    3. That’s the most punchable man I’ve ever seen.

    4. The people in the audience didn’t even look like they were laughing.

    5. Kilstein made his U.S. debut TV performance on February 2, 2011 on Conan where he performed a stand up routine/anti-war rant. The performance was much lauded over Twitter by writers such as The Nation’s Chris Hayes

      Of course it was.

      1. Oh, that guy. I had to stop watching that ep of Conan for the sake of my blood pressure.

        OTOH, last night on Dave Letterman the comedian made a joke about Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize. The audience wasn’t with him at first but the whole “Maybe they could have given it to a President of a country with no wars, or failing that, just one war?” won them over.

        1. By “the comedian” I am not referring to Kilstein, btw.

    6. I was thinking that prison entertainment has really come down lately.

  7. Jurors being screened for the perjury trial of Roger Clemens repeatedly challenged the wisdom of the congressional hearing at which Clemens allegedly lied, as well as the expense of prosecuting the baseball pitcher.

    Cardassian justice at its finest.

  8. BC anti-tax crusader faces prison time.

    “A lot of people who pay taxes are interested to know what happens when people don’t, and when people tell people they don’t have to,” Harper told CBC News after the hearing. “You have to pay tax. It’s really just that simple.”

    But don’t worry, everyone assures me that taxation isn’t theft, or extortion, at all. We’ll just make an example of you if you don’t cough up!

  9. Ottawa to slash environmental review role

    Of course, critics predict the end of the world, doom and destruction.

    1. What is that southern heading thundering herd of women and minorities doing on the 48th parallel?

  10. We have to explode the cows to save nature…

    http://goo.gl/ekLfq

    Wapo link.

    1. I get a Page Not Found.

      1. Squirrels won’t let me post it. Wapo National. Cow wandered into cabin and froze. Solution is blowing them up.

        1. Lemme try:

          Cows!

          1. Interesting. Carting out the beef in trucks is more ecologically destructive than helicoptering in, blowing up the cows and burning down a cabin. Huh.

  11. busted a sophisticated online retailer of your finer illicit intoxicants. Using the privacy-shielding Tor network, the business had catered to thousands of customers since 2006.

    Well, there’s a ringing endorsement of Tor.

    1. Eh. I wouldn’t be surprised to find that Tor doesn’t have enough “noise” to cover the signal of thousands of people who only turn on Tor when they want to buy drugs online. If you’re going to buy drugs with Tor, also comment on reason with it. At random hours of the day.

  12. Newt Gingrich, a man destined to be the savior of our Republic, foiled by dasterdly college jorunalism major.

    1. If only he really were Zeus, he could have struck that overly-inquisitive pustule with lightning, as he no doubt deserved.

  13. Newt Gingrich, a man destined to be the savior of our Republic, foiled by a dasterdly penguin.

    1. He needed a bandaid, man, a BANDAID!!

  14. Texas funds women’s health programs without supporting abortion – and without federal aid, because the feds pulled their funding once abortion was excluded from Texas’ women’s health program.

    http://ow.ly/alaRJ

  15. I’m loving my elections and voting class, mainly because the professsor supports Citizens United and points out the rank hypocrisy of Democrats like Obama who say they support campaign finance regulations when Obama essentially killed public financing when he broke his promise to accept it.

  16. Canadians in a recent poll voiced strong disagreement with the idea that they should sacrifice civil liberties in the name of the war on terror.

    Now we’re being schooled by Canadians on the importance of civil liberties? I’m pretty sure that’s one of the signs of the end times.

    1. Yeah, them with their beady eyes and flappin’ heads!

  17. “From 2007 to 2009 alone, the marketplace processed more than 5,000 orders for drugs valued at more than $1 million, federal officials contended.”

    a million over the course of years is so small potatoes as to be laughable.

    The drug rings of NE Philly clear MUCH more than that in a month.

    1. Yeah, but these guys did it without having to be in Philadelphia.

  18. “With taxmageddon approaching at the end of 2012, tax cuts are set to expire, pushing Americans to labor for government for another month.”

    No, pushing wealthy 1% fatcats to sit on their asses for another month without their trust funds growing as much. Like they did before Adolf W. Busholinni took over.

    No one who actually “labors” is losing a tax cut.

    1. C- trolling.

      The preferred nomenclature is BushHitler W. McChimpiburton.

    2. No, pushing wealthy 1% fatcats to sit on their asses for another month…

      Fuck off, slaver!

    3. Wow, you don’t actually know what the tax cuts did, do you?

      a new 10% bracket was created for single filers with taxable income up to $6,000, joint filers up to $12,000, and heads of households up to $10,000.
      the 15% bracket’s lower threshold was indexed to the new 10% bracket
      the 28% bracket would be lowered to 25% by 2006.

      The EGTRRA in many cases lowered the taxes on married couples filing jointly by increasing the standard deduction for joint filers to between 174% and 200% of the deduction for single filers.

      1. Don’t confuse mustard with facts. He/She/It knows what’s true. Obamessaiah has told him/her/it.

    4. Taxmageddon? End of 2012? Meh, it doesn’t really matter.

      Last year we had a world-devouring debt ceiling crisis narrowly averted by pinkie swears by both the Reps and the Dems that they were going to form a blue ribbon panel (of Top Men, natch) to consider recommending possible suggestions for perhaps cutting the deficit in some sort of indefinite way, and if they didn’t follow through the government faced automatic across-the-board budget cuts. We were assured that the prospect of across-the-board cuts were so horrifying a prospect, so untenable an outcome that bipartisan budget cutting was a shoe-in. Somehow the unthinkable and totally-not-predictable happened – the blue ribbonistas failed to find a single gram of budgetary fat to cut from the Congressional diet. (To be fair, John Conyers refused the MEG scan that many suspected would have revealed large deposits of fat.)

      Given that those automatic across-the-board budget cuts are scheduled to take place shortly after the first of the year and will ravage the national budget to the tune of literally billions of dollars, I think Taxmageddon is not that big a deal – it is the Apocalypse of the coming budget cuts that keep me awake at night.

  19. As has already been mentioned on this website, the “Buffett Rule” bill in the Senate was DOA because, under the Constitution, all tax bills must begin in the House.

  20. “Canadians in a recent poll voiced strong disagreement with the idea that they should sacrifice civil liberties in the name of the war on terror.”

    But, in the war against insensitivity, civil liberties just get in the way.

  21. They put manboobs in Time (I guess that SPLC gig made him bigtime): Equal Pay Day!

    Summarize “It’s 77 cents on a dollar because women have to make choices. It’s not fair that they have to make choices.”

    1. Labor theory of value ftw! Thank Comrade Obama for this happy life!

  22. You have got to wade into the comments on this Slate article about the defeat of the Buffet Rule. Just to get an idea of the caliber of voter libertarians need to court in order to win anything. I’m beginning to wonder if it’s even worth it.

    1. Amjo
      Tuesday, April 17, 2012 at 9:51 am
      You’re kidding right. Point is he got the economy moving and improving all on his own, with absolutely no help from a do nothing Congress, whose goals are for the rich and their own self serving egos. GOPTP’ers could care less about the American people. I’ll take Obama over Romney any day.

      Obama 2012!

      Nope. Let’s have some lambs and some music.

      1. “whose goals are for the rich and their own self serving egos”

        Well, Amjo did get one thing right. S/he just needs to apply that insight across the board.

        1. “all on his own”

          Elizabeth Warren should remind him that no man is an island, and ROADZ.

    2. Reading Slate comments (in pretty much any article) is pretty soul-crushing. I commend your intestinal fortitude.

    3. I’m sorry, loophole?

      1. I love that talking point. Not instituting an entirely new set of rules for a certain group of people is “exploiting a loophole”.

    4. You have got to wade into the comments on this Slate article

      Not even with your dick.

  23. A picture is worth a thousand words.

    1. “Hey, everybody! Who else could go for a salad?”

      Fucking vegans.

    2. Bill does bring the vaudeville. You can’t keep an old song ‘n’ dance man down

    3. “I wish Michelle would let me get away with screwing an intern.”

    4. “Oh, just fuck me so hard, right now.”

    5. I’m thinking Bill just got a noisy blowjob backstage, and didn’t know his mike was on.

    6. Didn’t think much of him at the time, but by comparison…

      God, I miss Bubba!

      1. “Colombian hookers!!!! Where?”

  24. The so-called “Buffet rule”

    You mean I get to pick and choose what taxes I’ll pay?

  25. Our squirrel overlords have deemed my comments containing links invalid, so you’ll have to manually meander on over to CNN’s website to read Sandra Fluke’s latest estrogen-fueled salvo on this front. It’s every bit as cringe worthy as you might expect.

    1. That was meant for Coeus’ post on Equal Pay Day above. Fuckin’ squirrel fascists.

      1. There ya go. Squirrels love me for some reason.

      2. I for one welcome our squirrel, ah fek it. Man the barricades men or close the wall up with our Reasonoid dead.

    2. I’ve noticed a lot of mine that get flagged as invalid don’t even contain any links. Not sure what the squirrels are looking for. Maybe it’s a specific word, like “it”.

      1. Nope, it’s not “it”.

    3. Fluke is rapidly turning into a far-left-wing version of Joe the Plumber.

      1. LOL at this:

        Instead, many young women about to enter the workforce are focused on paying off their student loan debt.

        Perhaps if her female classmates hadn’t gone to Georgetown Law, they wouldn’t be worried about paying off their student loan debt.

      2. You may not believe this, but I was going to post that exact same thing!

      3. We should force them to breed.

        1. And post the videos on the internet, of course.

      4. I’d still hit it!

        1. What, and put up with that mouthy BS? Have you no shame?

  26. Ted Nugent threatens to kill Obama. Or something.

  27. WTF “Your comment is invalid”?????

    1. It seems to be an anti-Mary measure that’s a little too aggressive. It means that they’re still taking keeping this place free of her seriously, which is good.

      1. I have a suggestion. Rather than “Your comment is invalid”, they should use “Your comment grows tiresome.”

        1. How about “Shut UP, Stella!” I like that better.

          1. No, I’m not budging. It’s a German thing.

            1. Budgerigars, by the by, are actually an Aussie thing.

      2. Yeah, but shit… can’t post links from well-established( news sites? That’s clinching too tightly.

        * Not “good”, just not spam.

        1. Your comment grows tiresome.

          1. Argh. ( instead of *.

            Symbol fail. I am self-disappoint.

            1. Your comment grows tiresome.

              1. You may not touch my monkey.

                  1. I am lost. What’s the “comment grows tiresome” meme from?

                    1. It’s not a meme. It’s a trend.

                      It comes from the old Dieter sketches on SNL. Dieter would get bored and say, “Your story grows tiresome.”

                    2. Now is ze time on Sprockets vhen ve dance!

                    3. Oh, bloody hell. I forgot about Dieter. I am embarrass.

                    4. Oh shut up, for you are just a head in a rusty metal box.

                  2. I have always understood.

                  1. No, touch the monkey! Now’s the time at Hit & Run when we dance!

          2. Thanks!

            By the way, I haven’t gotten this message yet. Is it entirely clear what triggers it?

            1. Well, it can’t be being a douchebag, or you would have hit it instantly. Of course, so would have I.

              1. Yes, the fact that neither of us have gotten the message is either disturbing or repellant.

                1. Which one of you is disturbing and which is repellant? This is not mutually exclusive, you know.

                  1. ProL must be repellent because I have no idea what repellant is.

                    1. Spelling is so pass? and bourgeois.

      3. I’ve never experienced this problem, does this mean that the Reason gods like me more?

        1. Neither have I, which merely conforms to me that I am the favorite. Suck it, Warty!

        2. I haven’t but had assumed I wasn’t important enough to persecute

          1. If they touch one link that emanates from your furry hand, O Wonder From Down Under…

  28. I am going to call bullshit on the tax freedom day thing. Deficit financing is just a way of taxing future income, so Tax Freedom Day doesn’t happen until you reach the point where the expenditures would no longer require a bite out of income to pay for them.

    Just because the government stops taking it directly out of your wallet and signs your name to an IOU does not mean you are finished with the government yoke for the year.

    1. By my calculations under your model, Tax Freedom Day would be on Duodecimber 19.

    2. That’s the problem in general with anti-tax organizations that treat debt as anything but another tax. And let’s not forget monetary devaluation.

      If it is cheaper to pay off the debt with a tax increase now than an increase plus interest later, I’d prefer more taxes now and stop either printing money or writing up IOUs. Of course, I’d prefer government spending come to a near-screeching halt and use taxes primarily to pay down the principle on the existing debt.

  29. Dear Squirrels:

    Whatever you are doing that’s stopping legitimate links, please don’t hurt Herc or TiggyFoo/anonbot. They are our friends.

    1. NOT TIGGY FOOO!!!

      To Tiggy Fooo

  30. BC First Nation plans private hospital.

    Chief Robert Louie says the 100-bed facility would operate outside Canada’s medicare system, serving any patient willing to pay for private treatment.

    Louie believes there’s a large market of Canadians who are leaving the country for health care who would be willing to pay for the same services at home.

    Here’s wishing them success and that many more follow their lead.

  31. Shit… can’t post the link, but Warren Buffett has prostate cancer.

    shrike’s salty ham tears will taste so delicious.

    1. Buffet’s prostate could go the way of his fatuous “Buffet Rule”.

      Not likely though, he is DX’d stage one. He’s got many a year left.

      1. Buffet’s prostate could go the way of his fatuous “Buffet Rule”.

        Improperly voted on in the Senate?

      2. Every man will get prostate CA if he lives long enough.

      3. Shit… that long?

  32. Even the ancaps here will thank God that the mighty power of the state exists so that this dangerous criminal could be apprehended

    Girl, 6, handcuffed by police for throwing tantrum at school

    1. Needz moar tazer. Was there a dog in the vicinity?

    2. That’s Australia, which is even more fucked than America, but not as bad as Britain.

      1. Oh wait, damn, that was just an Australian site talking about how fucked America is. Great.

      2. er, that is Millegeville, Georgia, hometown of Flannery O’Connor

    3. No SWAT team? She could have had some aspirin.

      I am disappoint.

    4. Even the ancaps here will thank God that the mighty power of the state exists so that this dangerous criminal could be apprehended

      Sorry, furry, but as I pointed out a few hours back, that kid is the Earth-bound avatar of Thor.

    1. Nothing can surprise me coming from a country where a 60 year old woman with A-cups can get a child pornography charge for taking self-portraits.

      1. Way o’ the future. Nationwide soon.

      2. Old women, small boobs is now a hot new fetish, my god!

  33. State of Michigan says: “Bitch, where’s my money?” to lottery winning food stamp recipient.

    1. ‘Bout goddamn time. She should’ve been cut off the moment she won all that scratch.

  34. The leftist Toronto Star has a column about how horrible it is that Canadians are more concerned about Individual rights since it could trump “the public good” especially since it could lead to American Style healthcare. Oddly the writer is an antiwar Muslim so I guess he isn’t concerned that anti-Muslim laws could be promulgated as being part of the “public good.” Odd how many of the antiwar leftists seem to really love the state (even the US State) as long as The Right People are in charge.

    Also what kind of music to you guys listen to? Is it all indie rock screeching about how Life is Pain that automatically is a sell out once more than 5 people are aware of them? Or some novelty band enjoyed only for Ironic reasons? Or Dissonant clanging?

    1. List of libertarian-approved music:
      – Rush

  35. I spend my vast, oppressive fortune buying musicians from disparate genres and having them freestyle with each other.

    The only mainstream, organized style that I can think of that even approximates the beautiful cacophony of the musical anarchy I desire is nu-metal.
