Over 214,000 Doctors Opt Out Of Obamacare, by Barbara Boland, at cnsnews.com. I’ve said this before: Obamacare will create a true free market healthcare system, and a government-run healthcare system. The tax payer will be on the hook for both.

Quarantine Backwardness Continues..., by Chris Rossini, at target liberty.com. Returning troops from Africa will be quarantined for 21 days. Civilian workers  for the defense department will not. I think I would believe the military knows what it is doing when it comes to life and death decisions.

Police Infuriated About New Device That Warns People When A Cop Is Near, by John Vibes, at thefreethoughtprogect.com. The police aren’t happy that generating revenue will not be as easy. People don’t take to kindly to laws that they think are amoral.

Don’t Get Pulled Over By The PA State Police, at theburningplatform.com. It’s almost hard to believe that this story of police abuse is real, but it is. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Ex-CBS Reporter: Government Agency Bugged My Computer, by Kyle Smith and Bruce Golding, at nypost.com. If this is what the left will do to a main stream reporter. It’s not hard to believe that the IRS would target individuals and groups that want to shrink Government.

America’s Shale Revolution Has Elevated The US To The Worlds No. 1 Energy Superpower, by Mark J. Perry, at carpediemblog. This has happened in spite of the bureaucrats in this administration trying to stop hydraulic fracturing. What would the economy look like if they had been successful at shutting down fracking?

What’s Weirder Than Gas Prices Tumbling? Not A Single Politician Demanding To Know Why, by Mark J. Perry, at carpediemblog. Politicians are always looking to demonize evil speculators when the price goes up. What about the evil speculators when the price goes down?

Liberals Propose Social Security-Like System To Transition To Green Economy, by Nathan Schacht, mediatrackersorg. Central planners think they are smarter than the market. As Robert Bradley has said, “ When Government tries to pick losers and winners, it typically picks losers. Why? Because in a free market consumers pick winners to leave the losers for Government.” Read my article, Government Investment? Or Government Waste?, to see how green energy has failed.

Energy Independence, by Robert Bradley, at masterresource.com. Free markets, as hampered as they are by Government edicts, are the only way that scarce resources can be rationed economically.

Confessions Of A Wheel Chair Nazi, by Victor H. Ward, at targetliberty.com. Just another example of the unintended consequences of legislation. Central planners aren’t as smart as the spontaneous order created by individuals cooperating and competing in free markets.

Random Thoughts, by Thomas Sowell, at jewishworldreview.com. Thomas Sowell is always a must read. Here is an example:

Too many intellectuals are too impressed with the fact that they know more than other people. Even if an intellectual knows more than anybody else, that is not the same as saying that he knows more than everybody else put together — which is what would be needed to justify substituting his judgment for that expressed by millions of others through the market or through the ballot box.”
