Pics: The Terrifying Result Of The Militarization Of Police

by Paul Szoldra | August 12, 2014
Business Insider

While serving as a U.S. Marine on patrol in Afghanistan, we wore desert camouflage to blend in with our surroundings, carried rifles to shoot back when under enemy attack, and drove around in armored vehicles to ward off roadside bombs.

We looked intimidating, but all of our vehicles and equipment had a clear purpose for combat against enemy forces. So why is this same gear being used on our city streets?

On Saturday, a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown, an unarmed black man. In the days that have followed, the town with a population of about 21,000 has seen massive protests in response to the shooting, as some witnesses said Brown had his hands up when he was killed.

Is libertarianism a fantasy?

Paul Krugman, columnist for The New York Times and all around coercion-loving madman, wrote an op-ed in the NYT yesterday where he mocked libertarianism as a “foolish fantasy.” Krugman pulled out a few common strawman arguments in order to fortify his position as a believer that governments can only work when they operate without the consent of the people they govern.

Krugman used government regulations on phosphorus that are intended to prevent water contamination as an example that he claims proves unequivocally the need for intrusive, coercive government.

We've Hit Peak Bacon, People. Everybody Panic

The price of bacon keeps getting heftier.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average price of a pound of bacon in American cities rose another 6 cents in June, to an all-time high of $6.11. That's a 14 percent increase since June 2013 and a whopping 41 percent more than it cost in June 2012, when people were already writing articles about how expensive bacon was. Here's a graph illustrating the dramatic rise in bacon prices over the past couple years:
