SOTD: The Bodeans – Closer to Free


I’m thinking that this may be the official theme song for my podcast and radio show.  I just wish it wasn’t already the theme song to a d-baggy 90s TV show.

King George alive and well in Indiana Supreme Court


“The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown. It may be frail; its roof may shake; the wind may blow through it; the storm may enter; the rain may enter; but the King of England cannot enter — all his force dares not cross the threshold of […]

SOTD: Self Ownership


No it’s not a song tonight. I’m thinking about what’s going on in Libya and Wisconsin and wondering, when will we accept that each individual owns their life and the product of it.

Harry Reid – Opposition to Healthcare Reform = Support for Slavery


Harry, Harry, Harry. How can someone charged with protecting our rights be so clueless to the basic nature of liberty. On one point you are correct.  There were many politicians opposed to the abolition of slavery. For the record, they were Democrats, but that is beside the point.
