I’ve been waiting for political satirist Bill Maher to comment on Global Warming since the Climate-Gate scandal broke a few weeks before the Copenhagen Summit. For those of you who missed this story, thousands of emails from the leading scientists whose research provides the foundation for the Global Warming theory – also referred to as “Climate Change” – were retrieved by a hacker and subsequently posted to the internet. The emails revealed, among other game changing developments, that global temperature data had been manipulated, or outright fabricated, in order to fit the anthropogenic (man-made) Global Warming theory most commonly associated with the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit.

In a five minute segment on Fox News channel’s Geraldo at Large in which alternative news personality Alex Jones was interviewed by host Geraldo Rivera, and regular contributor Kimberly Guilfoyle, concerning the questionable link between the 9/11 Truth Movement and the Pentagon Gunman, a link made within an hour of the shooting by mainstream media outlets, Jones boldly questions whether the event was “staged” by the government.

He cites documented instances where U.S. officials carried out or planned staged terror events both domestically, Operation Northwoods, and abroad, the Gulf of Tonkin incident, as well as credible allegations that U.S. authorities were contacted and subsequently warned by the parents of the Christmas Day Bomber, the Fort Hood and Pentagon Gunmen, weeks before these incidents took place.

stosselOn the February 25, 2010 episode of Stossel, a weekly Fox Business News program hosted by long time investigative reporter John Stossel, the issue of whether the designations made by the FDA, which determine through force of law the accessibility within the marketplace of all pharmaceuticals, would better serve the public in a voluntary capacity was discussed at length.

Stossel expressed the novel idea that “free” people should decide what goes into their bodies because they, not the government, own their bodies.

Haiti -- a year before the earthquake

Haiti -- a year before the earthquake

 

The decision makers in Haiti would benefit tremendously from familiarizing themselves with the economic “blueprint” of Hong Kong. The devastation and loss of life caused by the recent earthquake has cast the international spotlight on Haiti, regarded as the “poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.”

Underneath the debris of Haiti’s collapsed infrastructure is an island nation which has struggled mightily to have a legitimate economic presence within the world community since becoming the first independent Black republic in 1804.

Marlin Briscoe became the first full time African-American starting quarterback in professional football for the AFL's Denver Broncos

 

I watched the first two episodes of the five part series, “Full Color Football: The History of the American Football League,” the other night on the NFL Network – it originally aired on Showtime in September 2009 – and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the intense competition between the more established National Football League (NFL) and the upstart American Football League (AFL), which began when the AFL debuted in 1960, resulted in a substantial increase in the amount of African-American players within the ranks of professional football.

News Junkie Post – Protesters outside of a Whole Foods grocery store angered by John Mackey's op-ed

News Junkie Post – Protesters outside of a Whole Foods grocery store angered by John Mackey's op-ed

In the interests of full disclosure, I must admit that I was inspired to write this particular post after reading “The Conscience of a Capitalist,” an article that details the fallout after an August 2009 op-ed appeared in the Wall Street Journal written by John Mackey, CEO and founder of the popular grocery store chain Whole Foods.

The op-ed was an answer to President Obama’s call for “constructive suggestions” regarding health care reform. It explores alternatives to the requisite federal spending (over $100 billion per year) proposed by Congress and endorsed by the Obama Administration.

Similar to state regulations which largely contribute to health insurance premiums increasing beyond the means of millions of Americans to reasonably afford, state restrictions on out-of-state medical practitioners limit philanthropists such as Stan Brock in providing free health care to thousands of Americans.

Stan Brock is the founder of Remote Area Medical (RAM), a non-profit organization dedicated to providing free health, dental and eye care, primarily to people in remote areas of the United States and throughout the world.

Shoppers take advantage of bargains on Black Friday

Shoppers take advantage of bargains on Black Friday

Now that Black Friday has come and gone, I wonder whether this novel concept has prompted politicians on Capitol Hill, on the precipice of deciding costly health care reform legislation, to take notice of free market principles in action, and re-think the proposed interventionism imbued within this legislative overhaul of the health insurance industry.

Black Friday in the United States is the Friday after Thanksgiving which marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, and for retailers large and small, signifies crossing the threshold of profitability for the year.

I recently came across this short video clip from the Republican presidential primary debate, which took place at the University of New Hampshire on September 5, 2007. In the debate, 2008 presidential candidate Congressman Ron Paul explains to a panel of Republican candidates, as well as the national audience, why gas prices had more than doubled at that time.

This video reminds me of why I became such a big admirer of Dr. Paul (formerly a practicing physician, whose adherence to limited government and sound money principles has caused many in the media to give him the moniker “Doctor No”) and frankly, why I quickly came to identify as a Libertarian.
