Mandatory Voting in America?

President Obama yesterday pointed out how seemingly beneficial compulsory voting requirements would be for America. And here I thought the president was “pro-choice.” For my part, I say why not? It is not like this is a free country.

BATFE Not Done Yet

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives’ (BATFE) illegal pursuit to ban the M855 rifle round is, reportedly, not caput. I previously pointed out that the ban itself was just a stepping stone to banning all 5.56 ammunition, and eventually all rifle ammunition (among other agendas).   In testimony before the Senate this week, […]

We Are Banning Clothing Now?

This kind of, well, stupidity does not endear me to more Big Government – quite the opposite. This is the analogous “conservative” equivalent of a so-called “assault” weapons ban: totally irrelevant, ineffective, and unethical behavior on the part of the state with respect to its stated goals. Forcibly dictating to people what they cannot wear […]
