The Ultimate Takedown of Obama's 'You Didn't Build That' Speech

President Obama's instantly infamous "You didn't build that" speech is a major turning point of the 2012 election not because it was a gaffe but because it was an accurate and concise summary of core progressive fiscal dogma.

It was also a political blunder of epic proportions because in his speech Obama unintentionally proved the conservatives' case for limited government. This essay will show you how.

Occupy Oakland protests in FAVOR of child sex trafficking

On Wednesday, June 13, members of the Occupy movement protested against a conference dedicated to combatting child sex trafficking - thus, the Occupiers in essence were coming out in favor of one of society's most loathsome moral crimes.

If there's one issue that unites Americans of all political stripes, it's the sexual enslavement of children. Whatever our opinions on other issues, we all agree that sex trafficking and the prostituting of children is an outrage and a tragedy. Everybody, that is, except Occupy Wall Street, who somehow found a way to oppose the abolition of child sexual slavery. In order to justify this seemingly incomprehensible and repugnant position, the Occupiers performed some of the most amazing moral gymnastics you'll ever encounter.

The Leaf-Blower Paradox and the Fundamental Fallacy of Obamanomics

Earlier this week President Obama articulated how he understands the concept of employment, explaining that, in his view of the universe, bureaucratic regulations are a good way to create jobs.

Yes, seriously, he said that. The President of the United States said it. Obama's fundamental misapprehension of employment economics reminds me of an intriguing paradox I observed first-hand just a few months ago when I visited a relative who lived in a suburban tract...

Elite Berkeley Students Upset They're in the 1%, Throw Occupy Tantrum

A clique of privileged U.C. Berkeley students, upset that they're the top 1% of elite students in the state and thus disqualified from participating in the Occupy movement, could no longer contain their frustration on Wednesday and threw an Occutantrum...

The police dutifully played their roles in the street theater performance, showing up in riot gear and looking scary so the privileged students could shout at them and feel properly revolutionary, as instructed by their professors. Following the script, the police repeatedly removed the handful of occupation tents so that the students could feel sufficiently wronged by authority figures and thereby earn their "Berkeley protest stripes," which have been a requirement for graduation since 1964. The group tantrum also gave the students a chance to test their fluency in Occupese, a new language which they have all been studying since the semester began on September 17.

Is the NSA Blinded by Big Data?

Who says it's the best method to catch the bad guys?

Rabbits hop around but that's not very threatening. Hops on a network, however, are a different game. When a rabbit hops on a lawn, each hop adds a yard or so. Not so in a network topology. In a network, the difference between one and two hops is huge. The difference between two and three hops is humongous because the effect of "hops" on traversing a network is exponential rather than additive. Exponential mechanisms don't add, they multiply-and that is the key to understanding a multitude of modern phenomena ranging from viral videos to pandemics.

Bill Gates a billionaire as well as a philanthropist has spent millions of dollars on a vaccine for AIDS. He is hopeful that a vaccine is developed against the disease within the next decade, as a cure remains far off.

Since 1981, 78 million people have been affected with this disease. "Probably the top priority is a vaccine. If we had a vaccine that can protect people, we can stop the epidemic," the Microsoft giant said on the sidelines of an anti-Aids-themed concert in Paris which he backs. According to UN estimates,39 million people have died and about 35 million are living with the immune system-destroying virus as of today, majority in poor countries.

Feds Gave Tor Project $1.8M While NSA Actively Tried to Destroy It

The Tor Project is a great way for people to cover their tracks on the Internet. Because of this, some in the federal government, specifically the National Security Agency (NSA), really dislikes Tor.

So it comes as a bit of a surprise that the project actually received over $1.8 million in federal money last year. The Tor Project, which provides free software to users interested in surveillance- and censorship-resistant web activity, recently released its financial statements and reports for 2013, and sources began taking note yesterday. The documents show that the State Department directly granted the organization $256,900 as part of its mission to fund "international programs [that] support democracy, human rights and labor."

Do you ever get that creepy feeling like you're being watched in public? That your conversations are being bugged and transmitted to the shadowy headquarters of an organization just looking for ways it can catch you?

Well, good news: The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is thinking about justifying your paranoia. At a city council meeting on Tuesday the boys in blue discussed the possibility of buying some drones...

Both parties and the debate commission are trying to "hoodwink" the American people.

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson filed an anti-trust lawsuit in federal court Friday to try to force his way into next month's presidential debates. Johnson, who first sought the GOP primary nomination before launching a third-party bid, is suing the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates and both the Democratic and Republican parties, calling the CPD a "conspiracy." The CPD was founded jointly by the two parties and the nominee, and the lawsuit alleges that they meet every four years to set the rules for the debate to "hoodwink" the American people.
