Are Social Conservatives Right to Dismiss Libertarian Solutions?

Written by Brian White on Monday, 18 August 2014. Posted in Politics, U.S., Opinion, Guest Column

People tend to view libertarianism by the prejudice of expected outcomes rather than by its philosophy of self ownership and private property ownership and, by extension, of the principle of non-aggression.

Are Social Conservatives Right to Dismiss Libertarian Solutions?

In American Daily Herald's August 9, 2014 edition Selwyn Duke's article 'LIBERTARIAN FOLLY: WHY EVERYBODY IS A SOCIAL-ISSUES VOTER” sought to defend the imperatives of social conservatives against the “modern millies” of the so-called libertarian community. I start out with repeating his demeaning insult because this informs us of Mr. Duke's characterization and attitude toward different ideas and opinions and we should understand that those that devolve into insult for their unstated intentions is to promote their own agenda.

FDA Commissioner Margaret A. Hamburg Statement on Prescription Opioid Abuse

For more than a decade, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been working to address the important public health problems associated with the misuse, abuse, addiction and overdose of opioid analgesics, while at the same time working to ensure continued access to effective and appropriate medications for millions of Americans currently suffering from pain. I firmly believe that these goals are compatible, and that actions to address one should not be at the expense of the other.

FDA Taking Closer Look at 'Antibacterial' Soap

When you're buying soaps and body washes, do you reach for the bar or bottle labeled "antibacterial"? Are you thinking that these products, in addition to keeping you clean, will reduce your risk of getting sick or passing on germs to others?

Not necessarily, according to experts at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The Tax that is Obamacare

Written by Robert Jackson Smith on Tuesday, 03 December 2013. Posted in Economy, Health, U.S., Business

Progressives believe that more government, more regulation, and more taxation is the answer to every problem. This is the rationale behind Obamacare. The outcome will be, as it always is with socialism, a disaster.

The Tax that is Obamacare

On June 28, 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Obamacare as a tax. As with most taxes, money is taken from the more productive people and given to the less productive people. This does two things:

We will never know who among us is counted in the half-million or more alive today because Candace Lightner turned a personal tragedy into a resounding triumph.

Candace Lightner: From MADD to Glad For Lives Saved

Candace Lightner hasn’t compiled the data herself, but officials who study highway safety tell her more than a half-million lives – 600,000 in fact – have been preserved since the effort she spearheaded to curtail drunk driving. It’s the kind of accomplishment for which the Smithsonian Institute requests your memorabilia but more importantly it makes a life that lasted only 13 years a triumph over tragedy.

If we have tax dollars to give to religious groups, then we should lower taxes and fire some government employees, not invent new programs to spend money on.

Garage OPSEC

Written by Eric Peters on Thursday, 15 August 2013. Posted in Crime, U.S.

Remember that thieves are hyenas – they like to prey on the weak and helpless. If you’re obviously neither, the odds are good they’ll try elsewhere.

Garage OPSEC

If you’re a gearhead, you’ve probably got a lot of stuff in your garage. Expensive stuff. Collectible cars. Bikes. Tools and equipment. There might be more value in your garage than inside your house. But ironically, the garage is often the least secure part of the house. Thieves are well-aware of this.

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Thursday, 11 July 2013. Posted in Crime, U.S.

An FOIA request submitted by Judicial Watch turns up hundreds of pages of documents that indicate that a little known DOJ agency likely supported racially charged protests following the killing of Trayvon Martin.

Justice Department Accused of Supporting Anti-Zimmerman Protests

In the wake of the death of Trayvon Martin, outrage over his shooting brought mass protests against George Zimmerman and police in Florida. At the same time, the media spun the story in the worst possible light, taking every possible step to force Americans to conclude that Zimmerman was a white racist who killed Martin after racially profiling him. None of this was true.

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Thursday, 20 June 2013. Posted in Crime, U.S.

According to government investigators, TWA Flight 800 crashed when its fuel tank exploded. A new documentary casts fresh doubt on that conclusion.

New Documentary Will Provide New Evidence of a Missile Strike on TWA 800

When TWA 800 crashed off Long Island in 1996, witness reports indicated at the time that it seemed that the airliner, carrying over 200 people, was shot down by a missile. Federal authorities at that time dismissed the idea, and when the multiyear official investigation finally wrapped up, the conclusion was that the aircraft's center fuel tank exploded.

How to Select Furniture for Special Needs Seniors

on Friday, 07 June 2013. Posted in Health, U.S.

Ultimately, aging will affect all of us, but we don't have to be miserable as a result. Technology, coupled with changes to living styles, can keep us comfortable and improve quality of life even as we cope with the challenges of aging.

How to Select Furniture for Special Needs Seniors

As we age, there are many things that change about our bodies that cannot be controlled. We may find that our eyesight becomes a little dimmer, that arthritis makes it a little harder to rise from a chair, that our bladders do not always want to act as they should, and that our skin becomes thinner and easier to bruise. Many of us find that balance can be an issue, and that many of the things we enjoy, such as a hot soak in the tub, have become too difficult.
