What Is a Vice-President And Why?

John Adams, the first vice-president of the United States (17891797), once exclaimed, My country has in its wisdom contrived for me the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived or his imagination conceived. A century later, there seemed to be little change. The 28th vice-president of the United States, Thomas R. Marshall (19131921) once stated, ... [click for more]

Blue Angels Budget Blues

The Navy's Blue Angels flight-demonstration team is in trouble. And not because their commander resigned earlier this year after flying his F/A-18 Hornet below minimum altitude at an air show in Virginia and causing a month-long safety stand-down. Headquartered at the Pensacola Naval Air Station, the Blue Angels have been flying and thrilling audiences for more than 60 years. The ... [click for more]

Terrorists as Warriors: The Fatal Confusion at the Heart of the War on Terror

Last week, when the Senate voted, by 93 votes to 7, to pass the latest National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), they passed legislation that not only approved a budget of $662billion in military spending for the next fiscal year, but also demanded mandatory military custody for all terror suspects seized in the future. The military-custody provisions were conceived, ... [click for more]

In Praise of Parallel Institutions

Globalization has been a buzzword for decades. The word has competing definitions: It can refer to the reduction of barriers to trade and travel, which allows goods, ideas, and people to act as though the world is one free-flowing community. But it can also refer to the centralization of power into a nexus from which policy decisions are broadcast ... [click for more]

Die in the Name of the Law

The story has become routine: another drug shooting. But it was not drug dealers shooting each other or hitting innocent bystanders during a drive-by, no. It was cops killing an innocent person during a raid that had no business taking place at all. The culprits were members of the Pima County Arizona sheriffs SWAT team. The victim was Jose Guerena ...

Statist Baggage on the Airlines

First it was the TSA; now its the airlines. In addition to getting their bodies squeezed by the TSA, airline passengers are now getting their wallets squeezed by the airlines as well. Some airlines have begun charging $5 for printing out your boarding pass at the airport. Even if you print from a self-service kiosk, you'll still pay a $1 printing ... [click for more]

Neocons Don’t Believe Their Own Anti-Iran Propaganda

Were being lied to about the purported Iranian nuclear threat, and the war party knows it. In ways eerily reminiscent of the 2002 buildup to the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the American people are being fed a steady diet of war propaganda about Iran and its alleged quest for a nuclear weapon. As with Iraq's president, Saddam Hussein, comparisons to ... [click for more]

The Debt Crisis and Fiat Money

The European Union (EU) has a sovereign-debt problem. Greek government bonds have been downgraded to junk status, and there is talk of default. Italy, Spain, and Portugal appear to be next, as they face skyrocketing interest rates just when their governments must borrow more to service their debt. Should these countries default, some of Europe's largest banks which are heavily ... [click for more]

Imperialism and Oil

In March 2003, after months of propaganda about phony threats posed by Saddam Hussein's nonexistent weapons of mass destruction, as well as absurd suggestions by the White House that his regime was in league with al-Qaeda, U.S. forces invaded Iraq in an act of aggression that was every bit as brazen and illegal as Nazi Germany's blitzkrieg of Poland ...
