“Punishment takes several forms. I don’t deserve good relationships. I don’t deserve a happy life. I deserve to be tormented with flashbacks, nightmares, and other unpleasant symptoms. Basically I deserve to be placed under court-martial and executed. Since the military hasn’t bother to court-martial me and execute me, I’m going to do that to myself”
Psychiatrist Dr. Colin Ross discusses the issue of military men committing suicide. Is this really due to post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after combat, or is there a connection between the over-drugging of soldiers on psychotropic medications?
How many times, oh how many times do we have to hear about the repeatedly debunked ’77 cents on the dollar’ gender pay gap between men and women? If your primary source of information is the mainstream media, that would approximately translate to non-stop. They behave like men are misogynistic pigs who take pleasure in paying women exactly 23 cents less per dollar than women who (theoretically) work in the exact same job. That’s rubbish and you know it.
‘Learn Liberty’ finally addresses this long-standing “issue” (media-concocted lie) by highlighting that personal choices between men and women, in addition to the subject of mandated maternity leave, lead to their own disparities. The truth is that while women are temporarily away on maternity leave (and ‘temporary’ can be up to a year or more in Scandinavian countries), their career goals and advancement opportunities can be permanently stunted.
Demand for housing in Washington DC is going through the roof. Over a thousand people move to the nation’s capital every month, driving up the cost of housing, and turning the city into a construction zone. Tower cranes rising high above the city streets have become so common, they’re just part of the background.
But as fast as the cranes can rise, demand for housing has shot up even faster, making DC among the most expensive cities in the United States. With average home prices at $453 per square foot, it’s every bit as expensive as New York City. And the struggles of one homebuilder shows just why the city’s shortage looks to continue for a long time.
“I got driven down the tiny house road because of affordability, simplicity, sustainability, and then mobility,” says Jay Austin, who designed a custom 140-square-foot house in Washington DC.
Dr. Robert Higgs is a Senior Fellow in Political Economy at the Independent Institute, which is based in Oakland, California. A champion of liberty and Austrian economics, Dr. Higgs was recently featured as a guest lecturer at the Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama for the 2014 Mises University week.
In this lecture, he professes how war leads to big government, a subject which he has written about extensively for over thirty years. He furthermore beseeches upon the students in attendance, most of whom are young Libertarians, that warfare makes an absolute mockery out of everything that we hold dearly.
One of the great heartwarming/guilty pleasures of life is watching two degenerates who really deserve a good beating, actually get what’s coming to them. A damn good beating. Outside of a Fuel Depot in Houston, two thieves attempted to ambush one guy who’d just returned from a bank. Unfortunately for the would-be felons, the man behind the counter was observant of what was happening outdoors, and that man just happened to be a ten-time Sri Lankan MMA champion.
They brought her in as soon as they could, but her little body wasn’t strong enough. The doctor checks for a pulse, but there is nothing more they can do. She turns to the father and gives him the news. His baby girl is gone…
One after another, the injured were brought in. Men, women, and children. All from the same neighborhood that the Israeli army has been pounding with artillery. Outside the hospital, the grief for the deceased was getting too much to bear.
This upsetting report from Sky News shows the human cost of the ongoing violence and shelling in Gaza.
Popular radio host and philosopher Stefan Molyneux discusses the ongoing fatherlessness epidemic in the United States, which is one of the key contributors to the destruction of the American family. The negative impact of the pervasiveness of single mother households, in addition to violations of the non-aggression principle, are also reviewed.
With Iran’s nuclear talks at a decisive crossroads, the BRICS group of emerging powers says Tehran has an inalienable right to a peaceful nuclear program.
The BRICS countries also say there’s no alternative to a negotiated solution to the Iranian nuclear issue. The countries, namely Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, made the statement in a declaration adopted at their summit meeting in the Brazilian city of Fortaleza.
A UTair Boeing 767-300 incoming from Moscow and a Aerolíneas Argentinas Airbus A340-300 had a very close call at Barcelona Airport. The Utair 767 was about to land on Runway 02 while the Argentinas was crossing the runway.
By the time Russian pilots sight Argentinas (they were taxiing to a holding point for take-off) on the runway while they were on final approach, they did an excellent job at making an impressive and close go around.
