The World’s Hypocritical Silence As China Imprisons Its ethnic Muslims, by Charles Hugh Smith, at oftwominds.com. Excerpt from the article: “...The global Muslim community, and indeed, the entire global community, is strangely silent as China pursues a high-tech suppression of its ethnic Muslims.

Former House Speaker Paul Ryan To Lecture At Notre Dame, at dailyjournal.net. Paul Ryan is not the only big government central planner who is going to be a guest lecturer at ND. Dem.

Government’s Counterproductive War Against Smoking, by Lee Friday, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article: “The efficacy of RIP (reduced ignition propensity) regulations on materials used to produce cigarettes is very much in doubt, with evidence suggesting they may even be counterproductive. Furthermore, aside from smoking-related-fires, the manner in which RIP cigarettes are manufactured and smoked may actually pose greater risks to the health of smokers as compared to non-RIP cigarettes.”

“Vaping products are a much healthier alternative for smokers and far less likely to be the source of unintended fires, as compared to RIP and non-RIP cigarettes. However, Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Canaca’s Minister of Health, said, “We’re .. placing restrictions on the promotion of vaping products while allowing adults to legally access them as a less harmful alternative to cigarettes …” So, having acknowledged that cigarettes are more harmful to our health than vaping, the government somehow feels it is prudent to prevent vendors of vaping products from persuading cigarette smokers to kick the habit.”

“Politicians and bureaucrats appear to be more dangerous to our health than smoking.

Seattle’s Revolt Of The Elites, at zerohedge.com. The homeless problem is getting out of control in cities across the country that are run by progressive democrats.

Electric Cars Are Doing More Harm Than Good, at zerohedge.com. Electric cars charged by electricity produced from coal, generate more CO2 emissions over their lifetime than gas-powered cars.

Does California Need Rain, Rationing, Or Prices, by Daniel Bier, at fee.org. Water is a scarce resource and has to be rationed in one of two ways. 1) By prices in a free market system. 2) By bureaucrats in a centrally planned system. Price controls and subsidies lead to water being used in activities that wouldn’t be cost-effective if market prices prevailed. Agriculture accounts for 80% of water usage but only 2% of economic activity. Market prices would get rid of inefficient agricultural activities, as well as curb industrial and residential usage. There is no chance that prices will be allowed to work their magic in California.

Stop Policing For Profit In New Mexico, at santafenewmexican.com. A house bill would get rid of civil asset forfeiture in New Mexico. The fifth amendment is back in vogue. Lets hope other states will follow New Mexico’s lead.

Methods Police Use On Mentally Ill Are Madness, by Conor Friedersdorf, at theatlantic.com. Watch the first three minutes of the video. A mother called police and said her son was off his meds, and needed help to get him to the hospital. She probably wishes she would have called an ambulance instead of the cops, because her son would still be alive today. The cops immediately escalate the situation and the rest is history. Read the whole article it has some excellent points.

Kshama Sawant’s Next Planned Attempt To Destroy Free Markets, at economicpolicyjournal.com. The Seattle council woman who lead the passage of a job and business killing 15 dollar minimum wage law, now has her sights set on destroying the housing market by pushing rent controls. This central planner is hurting the very people she is claiming to help. Is she ignorant about the results of her policies, or is she doing this on purpose? It doesn’t matter, the result is the same either way.

Parents Must Sign Permission Slip Before Kids Can Eat Oreos, by Lenore Skenazy, at reason.com. This is on the permission slip, “the ingredients of the oreo is on the back of this sheet and on my e-board....”.

Cal State U. Deactivates Christian Group…For Seeking Christian Leaders, at tammybruce.com. When you try to micromanage every decision with excessive rules, there is no sphere of freedom left for individuals to make decisions. The result is this illogical, or insane, decision by some bureaucrat at Cal State U. Or is it anti Christian bias.

Local Indiana Station Ambushes Memories Pizza To Gin Up A Religious Freedom Restoration Act Story, by Tom Blumer, at newsbusters.org. Why would anyone think people in the media don’t have an agenda? Journalists got it wrong about hands up don’t shoot in Ferguson, the gang rape at University of Virginia, the Duke lacrosse rape case, Harry Reid Lying about Romney not paying taxes, the RFRA story in Indiana. Hard core progressive’s on the left and right, will lie, cheat, break laws, and destroy individuals in order to advance government power, and journalists play the role of the get away driver.
