In Detroit, Rand Paul says justice system treats minorities unfairly
The senator from Kentucky had an important question for Republicans in Michigan.
“How are you supposed to make child support payments if you’ve been in prison, and the best job you can get is $9 an hour?” Sen. Rand Paul asked, wearing a suit and tie at the opening of a new GOP office on Livernois Avenue in Detroit.

This week, fourteen people charged by the Department of Justice in connection with a coordinated denial of service attack on PayPal's services in 2010 will appear in Federal Court. The "PayPal 14," as they have been dubbed, are charged with participating in an attack orchestrated by Anonymous to retaliate against PayPal's suspension of its relationship with WikiLeaks. Their case as well as PayPal's actions in 2010 raise important questions about press freedoms and the nature of online protests.
There is one thing that becomes apparent when reading Gary North's articles. He knows a lot. But there is also another thing that becomes apparent sometimes, in particular in his latest article on Bitcoin. He thinks he knows more than he actually knows. I can't address his article in full detail now as I'm at the Latin American Bitcoin Conference, but I thought I'd mention some core issues with his article.

Reason magazine and CATO suck! They get some things right, but they are total establishment shills on important issues.
Are they saying there is no libertarian argument for refusing to have someone stick a needle in your arm and dump heavy metals and "weakened" viruses?
Or are they saying there is no libertarian argument against forcing someone to use a product? Big Pharmacy certainly wants everyone vaccinated.
Remember the last "crash"?

The other day my son told my wife the name of a song he was playing on the guitar, which he had made up. He happened to call it, "In the woods". He searched "In the Woods" on youtube and it happened to bring up a song he liked (guitars) and one that has found me affixed to the sounds they produce.

Should Republicans win the Senate majority in 2014, President Obama would be forced into a corner – politically checkmated. At the NRSC, our goal is easily defined: Majority. This morning, two stories look at how that is going.
