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:

Robin Williams Dead at 63. (RIP Buddy)

What can I say? The man meant alot to me. He gave me confidence, taught me that it was ok to care about things, made me cry, and holy crap did he make me laugh. He will be missed

http://insidemovies.ew.com/2014/08/11/robin-williams-dead-at...

"Oscar winner and comedian Robin Williams died this morning at 63. While his publicist wouldn’t confirm that his death was a suicide, a rep did issue this statement. “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

Williams, who won an Oscar for his supporting role in Good Will Hunting, will reprise his role as Theodore Roosevelt in the third installment of Night at the Museum this December. He had recently signed on to reprise his beloved role as Mrs. Doubtfire in a sequel to be directed by Chris Columbus, and was last seen opposite Annette Bening in the indie film The Face of Love. His sitcom The Crazy Ones premiered on CBS last fall, but was not picked up for a second season."

What I will always remember about Robin Williams were those scenes where he was fighting off tears. There was a man who knew pain intimately. Apparently that pain was what got him.
