Links for January 10, 2011: Government Spending Could Destroy The World; The New Mexican War; No Privacy in Cell Phones; others….

  • I don’t know if this is off-base, but has anyone in the government considered spending less money? The debt ceiling is a joke. An absolute joke. These conversations are such a drag. It is time for Congress to repeal the debt ceiling entirely and abandon the transparent pretense of actually caring an iota about our mounting national debt. Just spend the damn money already. We all know you’re going to.

  • When they say “War On Drugs”, they’re not kidding.

  • I can see that they aren't "papers". Apparently, they aren't "effects", either.

    The Constitution is, after all, just a goddamn piece of paper.

  • Christopher Beam offers one of the weakest, least empathetic, and least imaginative criticisms of libertarianism I’ve read in a while. As Oscar Wilde said: “There is much to be said in favor of modern journalism. By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, it keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community.” See my annotations:
    page [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6].

  • Robert P. Murphy responds to “The Trouble With Liberty”. Murphy was much nicer than I was. Sure, Beam researched some libertarians’ names, but he obviously did not learn their positions.

  • The Best of the Best.

  • Some New Year’s resolutions

  • Posted from Diigo. The rest of my favorite links are here.
