France and Germany are Having a Tough Go Lately

Most people are aware of the largest terrorist attacks that have rocked Paris and Nice in recent months, and the Charlie Hebdo attacks that preceded them, but whether terrorism-related or just “plain” crime, both countries are seeing their fair shares of violence recently.

If You are Tired of Hyperpartisan Nonsense…

…I highly recommend checking out the first ever (televised) Libertarian Party primary debate between Austin Petersen (CEO of Stonegait LLC ), John McAfee (of McAfee Anti-Virus fame), and Gary Johnson (the former 29th Governor of New Mexico) that aired on Fox Business Network Friday, 1 April 2016.  The candidates were often humorous in their exchanges, […]
