#Feelthejohnson

A few days ago JimmyC wrote a post about Libertarians. I loved the cartoon! I’m not going to take the time to defend the party (and they seem about as inept as the GOP right now), but I want to point out something no one seems to be stating about Governor Johnson.

Despite whatever […]

Wednesday Open Thread

Even if we win in November, last night’s nomination of Donald Trump to be the Republican candidate for President is no cause for celebration.

Black Lies (Sadly) Matter

From filmmaker Pheim McAleer. Caution, trolls and other assorted id’jut-fools: facts contained herein:

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Ireland. We are here on vacation but had to write to you when we saw the news about Baton Rouge. From here it’s difficult to get full details on the shooting but it seems like another “Black Lives […]

Third Party Liability

Sunday Open Thread

Best political photo in awhile:

In Kentucky it used to take 1,800 hours of irrelevant training to become a natural, African-style hair braider. That was because hair braiders needed to obtain a cosmetology license to practice hair braiding. But yesterday, Governor Matt Bevin held a ceremony to commemorate the signing of S.B. 269, […]

Rule Britainna!

I am surprised, and pleased, by the results of the British referendum to leave the EU. I think it’s the right decision, and can’t state my reasons any better than Daniel Hammond did in his recent speech, so I won’t try.

This is significant, very, very significant for a lot of reasons. I’ll make […]
