Markets In Everything: A 3D Printed Hand For Less Than $50, by Mark J. Perry, at aei-ideas.org. This replaces a prosthetic arm that cost $42,000. If politicians really wanted health care to become “affordable”, they would have never passed the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. Instead they would have repealed all laws regulating health care and health insurance. This would have allowed the market to simultaneously bring prices down while increasing the quality of healthcare. Obamacare will provide a longer wait for lower quality care at a higher price.

18 Spectacularly Wrong Apocalyptic Predictions Made Around The Time Of The First Earth Day In 1970, Expect More This Year, by Mark J. Perry, at aei-ideas.org. Using climate science to predict the future of the earth, is just like using a persons palm to predict his future. Both are confidence games.

Video: Matt Rosendale Is A True Patriot, at libertypenblog.blobspot.com. Great political ad.

Courts Uphold Drivers’ Right To Tip Off Other Motorists To Police Speed Traps, at augusta.com. Cops say the purpose of speed traps is  traffic safety, not revenue enhancement. So shouldn’t they be happy that drivers are slowing down when they are flashed by on coming drivers.

Obama’s Green-Energy Boondoggles Leave The Tax Payer In Red, by Justin Sykes, at washingtontimes.com. Quoting Robert Bradley Jr., “When government tries to pick winners and losers, it typically picks losers. Why? Because the free market consumers pick winners to leave the losers for government.”

Elderly Man Beaten By Police, by Lauren Pozen, at kspr.com. This man is being charged with assaulting a police officer, what did he do head butt the cop. This is another example of why you should take care of problems yourself instead of calling police.

BASE Jump From Worlds Tallest Building, by Skydive Dubai. No words necessary, just watch the video.

The Logical Progression Of “Public Accomodation”, by Jim Fedako, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article, “… those who cheer the growth of government when it abuses someone else need to realize that what goes around, comes around…Ludwig von Mises noted that either negative rights to person and property are enforced or we are on the slope to slavery: there is no middle way. Think you can pick a stopping point mid-slide? Good luck. The guy riding the slide in front of you is waxing away.”
