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 Instead they would have repealed all laws regulating health care and health insurance.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.

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.”

The Result of The Break Down of The Rule of Law.

November 15, 2012

If the rule of law is defined as “general rules, known in advance, and applying to the rulers as well as the ruled”, than the breakdown of the rule of law is caused by government making laws that are micro managing, so numerous we can’t possibly know them in advance, and not applying to the rulers, only to the ruled. The expansion of Government regulations and mandates into every aspect of our lives has led to a push back. This video shows how a truck driver deals with Government agents at a check point twenty miles inside the border of the state of Texas. You can watch videos like this all day.

Citizens are not complying with what seem like simple and reasonable requests by police and Government agents. Go to youtube and type in “police abuse of power”, and watch videos of police and Government agents bullying, intimidating, and abusing the very citizens they are supposed to protect. This escalation of force is going to be met with an equal escalation of resistance. (more…)
