How Americans Destroyed Indoor Plumbing

The Romans invented indoor plumbing. It took America in the late 20th century to uninvent it.

The fateful year was 1994, when the federal government mandated that all toilets manufactured and sold in the U.S. have tanks no bigger than 1.6 gallons. It was the new prohibitionism. Gradually over the coming years, the toilets stopped working as they once did.

U.S. Army Musician Explains Why He Is Seeking Conscientious Objector Status on the Lions of Liberty Podcast

In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I welcome in fellow podcast host, James Newcomb of the Outside the Music Box podcast. James describes how he first found his passion in music, and how that led to a job as a musician with the U.S. army. James then details how he became acquainted with libertarian ideas, and how those ideas began the questioning of his role in the U.S. Army, eventually leading to his request for a discharge under conscientious objector status. James and I discuss the process to attain this status, why James is taking this route instead of just walking away, and what military defense might look like in a more ideal world. James then describes how he has channelled his energy into the Outside the Music Box, and as usual I end the show with my wrap-up rant!

New Hampshire conservatives plan anti-Jeb Bush caucus

Taking aim at Jeb Bush, a group of leading New Hampshire conservatives and libertarians are preparing to stage their own caucus three months before the state’s first-in-the-nation primary — and then unify behind the winner.
Sick of the string of centrist GOP-ers who’ve dominated the state’s primary in recent years — including John McCain (twice) and Mitt Romney — conservatives and libertarians are hoping to defy the conventional wisdom that the Granite State is moderate-friendly turf between the evangelical-dominated Iowa caucuses and socially conservative South Carolina.

Charlie Rose interview with Bashar al Assad the other day.

I've seen Assad interviewed before and he always seems very poignant and eloquent.

Charlie, as always, tries to steer the discussion towards MSM/Government propaganda and Assad clearly sees right through this.

Police Abuse of Uber Driver in New York City Caught on YouTube


http://youtu.be/SGSrGmHsT8s

Published on Mar 30, 2015
Police abuse of Uber driver in New York City. In an unmarked car, the policeman was allegedly attempting to park without using his blinker at a green light. (His reverse lights weren't on. Likely double parked without hazards on.) The Uber driver pulled around and gestured that he should use his blinker, casually and non-offensively, and kept driving us. The policeman aggressively pulls up behind us and this is what happens.

(This occurred just before 2pm on the West side of Manhattan, in police precinct 6, on March 30th, 2015. The officer did not identify himself, but he had a New York license plate: GSS 8891)

Attaining Liberty is the Hardest Most Simple Thing You Will Ever Do

Popularly, attaining true liberty is painted as being an arduous and only distantly possible realization. While I don't claim that it won't be arduous, I will claim that freedom is attainable at the whim of the masses. More accurately, freedom is attainable at the whim of only a fraction of the masses. Only one vow separates humanity from freedom:

I will not participate in evil.

Facebook accused of tracking all users even if they delete accounts, ask never to be followed

By Andrew Griffin | Tuesday 31 March 2015
The Independent

A new report claims that Facebook secretly installs tracking cookies on users’ computers, allowing them to follow users around the internet even after they’ve left the website, deleted their account and requested to be no longer followed.

Academic researchers said that the report showed that the company was breaking European law with its tracking policies. The law requires that users are told if their computers are receiving cookies except for specific circumstances.

Facebook’s tracking — which it does so that it can tailor advertising — involves putting cookies or small pieces of software on users’ computers, so that they can then be followed around the internet. Such technology is used by almost every website, but European law requires that users are told if they are being given cookies or being tracked. Companies don’t have to tell users if the cookies are required to connect to a service or if they are needed to give the user information that they have specifically requested.
