Frozen Out: 98% Of Stories Ignore That Ice Bound Ship Was On Global Warming Mission, by Mike Ciandella, at newsbusters.org. It’s a good thing they went during the middle of the Antarctic summer. Here is the expeditions aim. It’s not surprising that 98% of the media’s stories don’t give all the facts. They shape the news by omitting facts that don’t fit their vision of the world.

Warning: 60- and 40- Watt Incandescent Light Bulb Production Ends January 1st, at economicpolicyjournal.com. Government mandates that we must use compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. When they made this decision did they ask if the CFLs were safer than incandescent bulbs? No, this was a decision made to benefit crony capitalists?

How Far Could Travel Across The U.S. In One Day, From 1800 To Present, at economicpolicyjournal.com. Evil capitalists who produced saddles, wagons, trains, cars, trucks, buses, and planes have profited at our expense. Thank goodness these people are always looking for better ways of doing things, in spite of the road blocks government places in front of them.

100 Years Ago: Why Bankers Created The Fed, by Christopher Westley, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article, “…the Federal Reserve….was the implicit socialization of the banking industry in the United States.”  Just like Obamacare is the socialization of the healthcare industry.

Life In The Emerging American Police State: What’s In store For Our Freedoms In 2014? by John Whitehead, at economicpolicyjournal.com. You probably break a law everyday and you don’t know it, and that’s the problem. We can’t be under  the rule of law if people don’t know what the laws are, and the law makers don’t have to abide by them.

Who’d a-thunk it? A Cartel Doesn’t Like Competition, by Mark J. Perry, at aei-ideas.org. Regular taxi drivers in France don’t like a level playing field, they want it tilted in their direction. This is like having Usain Bolt start ten meters behind the rest of the competitors in the 100 meter dash, just to make it fair.

New York City Mayor Not Horsing Around, by Robert P. Murphy, at consultingbyrpm.com. The new mayor wants to ban horse-drawn carriages. He said,“We are going to get rid of horse carriages, period,” de Blasio said at a news conference Monday, saying that the practice is inhumane. I have two comments 1) is it inhumane for the police to ride horses, 2) they’re horses not humans.

Tea Party Leader Ted Stevenot To Run In Republican Primary Against Incumbent Governor Kasich, at ohiolibertycoalition.org. It’s Ted versus The Turncoat. The Ohio Healthcare Freedom Amendment passed with 66% of the vote, which means Governor Kasich ruled against the majority when he pushed Obamacare through the backdoor.
