Did Steve Jobs get killed by creating an iPad? Or did Jesse Jackson Jr. skip reading Bastiat?

I report, you decide.

New civility means apologizing once you’ve suggested that someone who disagrees with you should have not been born. Keith Olbermann, the most vitriolic Cornell alum I can think of, has been on a roll:

This week has hosted an unusual amount of conservative speakers on the Cornell campus. On Monday, Yuval Levin, of National Affairs fame, addressed the student body through our “Freedom and Free Societies” speaker series. Levin gave a really succinct overview of the implications of Obamacare. Basically, we have an even...

Tom Woods on Maddow

Maddow referred to “nullification” as something only “racist neo-Confederates” would support. Tom Woods makes an apt criticism of this insipid characterization over at Lew Rockwell:

Whatever happened to “small is beautiful,” Rachel? Remember that progressive slogan (along with “question authority,” yet another such slogan to bite the dust)? Some 309 million people...

Libertarians who are involved with the Free State Project always seem incredibly optimistic that they can reform the legislative practices in New Hampshire within our lifetime.

As of a few hours ago…
The U.S. Supreme Court put new limits on the power of citizens to challenge government programs as unconstitutionally promoting religion, upholding an Arizona tax credit aimed at helping cover private-school tuition costs.

The justices, voting 5-4, today said opponents lacked “standing” to challenge the 14-year-old program,...
