In an act of domestic terrorism the FBI and Justice Department have:
"... on their own initiative, shut down megaupload.com, the biggest of thousands of file-sharing sites online, and arrested four of its top officials. The FBI is hunting down three others who seem to be on the lam. They all face extradition and 20 years in prison. As part of the sweep, the feds issued 20 search warrants and arrived at individual houses in helicopters. They cut their way into houses, threatened with guns, confiscated $50 million in assets and outright stole 18 domain names and many servers.

On December 16 The Daily Caller ran this headline on its original home page sandwiched between the blistering banner 'MATERIAL SUPPORT' and a giant full color photo of the Twin Towers exploding:
Federal judge: Iran shares responsibility for 9/11 terror attacks
For folks who don't pay much attention, the self-chosen Ruling Class and its sit-up-and-beg mainstream media pets have been spoon-feeding us a steady diet of warmongering propaganda the same way they did under Bush leading up to the invasion of Iraq.

While barely reported in US mainstream media, which comes as little surprise to libertarians, two top US hurricane forecasters at Colorado State University admitted they "are quitting the practice of making a seasonal forecast in December because it doesn't work."
For 20 years William Gray, recently joined by Phil Klotzbach, has been preeminent at making December forecasts on how many named storms and hurricanes to expect during each official June-to-November hurricane season.

Fox News Pundit Chris Wallace told Fox news Pundit Neil Cavuto that if Ron Paul wins the Iowa caucuses it would discredit the Iowa caucuses.
"Well, the Ron Paul people are not going to like my saying this," Fox News Pundit Chris Wallace said on Fox News Pundit Neil Cavuto's show, "Your World with Neil Cavuto," and then said anyway, "but to a certain degree it will discredit the Iowa caucuses because rightly or wrongly, I think most of the Republican establishment thinks he is not going to end up as the nominee, so therefore Iowa won't count."

Herr Obama signed a bill (NDAAFY2012) that declares American soil to be part of the worldwide battlefield in the War on Terror and any American citizen merely suspected or accused of some form of "complicity" with terrorists will be treated on that battlefield not as a citizen with rights but as an enemy combatant with no rights whatsoever.

New Jersey Libertarian Party candidate and jury nullification advocate Julian Heicklen is fond of saying, "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. The price of justice is eternal publicity."
Heicklen, whose Monday court appearance for "jury tampering" (the act of handing FIJA pamphlets to people in public) has been indefinitely postponed, is generating plenty of publicity.

An email called Elephants & Donkeys has been sweeping mindlessly back and forth across the ignor-net from one inbox to another that attempts to paint Republicans as Good Guys and Democrats as the Baddies.

"Ron Paul is an isolationist, I get it," declared Sean Hannity on his radio talk show following the November 22 GOP debate that focused on foreign policy.
In eight simple words Hannity unknowingly confessed that he doesn't get it.
Or, far more likely, he knowingly joined the chickenhawk left and neocon right in using the isolationist label as a slur against peaceful, freedom-loving, non empire-building, non world-policing, non-warmongering, decent Americans.

Going green has nasty un-environmental consequences that rank-and-file greenies either don't know or don't care about.
For example, those multi-acre wind farms not only kill millions of birds while delivering a mere fraction of the electricity compared to nearly every other power source but 420 of them in Pennsylvania killed 10,000 bats last year.

It's only a matter of time before every human being within reach of America's Brave New World will be implanted with a satellite-tracked ID chip.
"Americans have already implanted the chips into one million of their pets," Mac Slavo writes in "Coming Soon: Computer Chip Implants for Human Tracking," then points out, "And what are we as citizens if not pets of the government?"

In "Why I Deny Global Warming" geophysicist David Deming recounts, "When I testified before the US Senate in 2006, I stated that a major climate researcher told me in 1995 that "we have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period."
It "had to be erased from history for ideological reasons," he explains.

Libertarians reject coercion, intimidation and fraud, whether from government or individuals. Government, after all, is ultimately just a collection of individuals.
Today, and for a very long time, the individuals who run America's government violate that simple principle of decency.
America's politicians - those individuals of government - fight wars of aggression, wars of empire, wars of personal ego, and give us fraudulent reasons for doing so.
There is no longer any shred of justification for believing or trusting politicians.

This falls into the, "You just can't make this stuff up!" category.
Seriously, has the US education system gotten soooooo! bad that people actually believe that Canada was a US state at one point and then left to branch out on their own?

Published in 1958, and immediately banned as "obscene," Terry Southern's Candy was a satire of mid 20th century pornography.
The title's namesake considers sex as "a beautiful and thrilling privilege" to be shared with everyone.
