Poverty vs poverty: Seven traits of the successful poor Claire Wolfe It’s a mystery why one person can be poor but still be proud, independent, and reasonably content while the guy next door is only content to slide into a swamp of misery, blame, slovenliness, dependence, and cigarette smoke. I agree that Alchemist summed things…

I Can’t Help That I’m a Libertarian

by Sheldon Richman from The Future of Freedom Foundation It’s not easy being a libertarian. I am not looking for sympathy when I say that. I just mean to point out that rejecting the conventional wisdom on virtually (do I really need this adverb?) every political question, current and historical, can be wearying. Life could…

The problem with thinking for yourself, questioning everything and taking no pronouncements at face value is that what may seem innocuous often triggers offense. Small paragraphs can explode into whole pages.

In a discussion at The Mental Militia forum, one topic touched on “the immigration problem”. A fellow participant made the following comment, which in my opinion, covered a lot of the truth of the matter. I see a threat, but not from the immigrants.

Much like what is going on at a global and national level, this Saint Louis family faced unpleasant, ugly, potentially fatal choices.

In setting up a new-to-her Linux-opsys computer, I installed solitaire games as requested. Function testing with spectators inspired “Move the Queen over to the King” – at which point I shut the game down, having completed the function test. I cannot imagine playing a game of solitaire under direction or close supervision. Which makes me…
