Copying a Bad Idea: Please, Not Another IMF …

Why is there an IMF? It seems a good question, so here is the short answer: in the post gold standard world, central bank-supported fractional reserve banking has enabled the emergence of such huge credit booms, that governments frequently get into severe trouble when a boom collapses and their countries' current account deficits are suddenly no longer funded by foreign investors. Then they feel forced to go hat in hand to the IMF.

Congress Investigates “Slush Fund” At USAID Used To Get Lawmakers To Pass Reforms

Our government has long seemed to be descending into a type of Orwellian universe of double speak. The Libyan War was not a war but a “time-limited, scope-limited military action”under Obama.

Now it appears open bribery of foreign officials is not bribery but “incentives” to implement policies favorable to their own people.

This Rolling, Transforming Droid Is the Stuff of Nightmares

So, this is how it starts. You hear a crunch, crunch, crunch—the sound of an imperfectly-round plastic ball rolling over concrete, chasing you down an alley. You look back and you see this… thing.

In any case, the MorpHex is a robot that looks like it’s straight out of your (my?) nightmares.

POLICE STATE: Feds Still Buying Tons of Ammunition

If liberals want to get rid of guns in society, apparently the first place they should start is the federal government. For some unexplainable reason, nearly every federal agency has its own armed, para-military police force. From the Post Office, to the Bureau of Land Management, to even the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration they are all armed to the teeth! Why do these agencies need their own police forces? They don’t… except for the fact that they want to force their will on the American people and it’s easier to do that when you can kill anyone in your way.
