Republicrats are more equal than others

darryl donkephant3The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed that member of the two wings of the ruling party have more rights than members of other political parties.

In 2012, that court ruled that Michigan’s “sore-loser law” applied to Presidential candidates, despite the fact that in 1980, the Michigan Secretary of State decided otherwise.

Most recently a judge from the 6th Circuit ruled, even though Rep. John Conyers did not have enough valid signatures to rightfully be placed on the ballot, that “because his failure to comply with the law appeared to be a good faith mistake,” Conyers should be placed on the ballot anyways. see more…

Judges and Pentagon begin to recognize inmate rights

On May 16, U.S. District Court Judge Gladys Kessler issued an order temporarily preventing the military from force-feeding (also called ‘enteral feeding’) an inmate at the military prison in Guantanamo Bay. Last year Abu Wa’el Dhiab petitioned seeking to block his force feeding there during the Ramadan holiday.

Dhiab’s petition was initially rejected by the same judge. Politico reports that in “July of last year, Kessler threw out Dhiab’s petition, saying she had no authority to consider it.

However, she urged President Barack Obama to act to ‘address’ complaints about the force-feeding practice.” see more…

A half cheer for the European Union!

The European Union is of course a ridiculous, socialist, nanny state contraption. The thing is, Europeans love that sort of thing. It has also done us quite a favor. It’s been almost 70 years since Americans have had to die on European soil in large numbers. The latest in our series of videos on good news tries to tell this rarely told story…

TRANSCRIPT:

Ah, Europe. It has added so much to world culture. Germanic Music, British Humor, the French work ethic. There is one export however that has made more of an impression than any other. And that’s violence. Europeans have killed people for land, they’ve killed people for Religion, they’ve even done it for ideas. see more…

FEC issues opinion on Bitcoin

FEC-BitcoinThe FEC has become the latest agency to issue guidelines on the usage of Bitcoin. On May 8, the six-members of the FEC issued an Advisory Opinion at the request of Make Your Laws PAC (MYL), a nonpartisan political action committee that supports “making every legislature a liquid democracy.” This advisory opinion was actually an approval of MYL’s third draft proposal for an opinion on whether or not the PAC could accept Bitcoin. The original proposal by MYL would have “allowed” them, and all PACs, to accept Bitcoin donations online, only “after the contributor provides their information, and only through a ‘one-time linked address’ system that makes it harder to contribute in someone else’s name” and donations would be limited to $100 worth of Bitcoin (per contributor, per election). see more…

Once more, on the lack of female libertarians

Spring is here, so it’s time again to try and find out why libertarian parties are predominantly produced of phalluses instead of pretty purses.

We’ve covered this subject with much enthusiasm, spasms, orgasms and sarcasm over the years and yet can only confidently say that this gets rehashed. Every. Fucking. Year.

This year is comedian Christopher Cantwell’s turn. He was smart to quickly wuss out of answering and instead asked Andrea Pisani, Toni Bones, and Tiffany Aliano — a bunch of libertarian women that apparently do exist — to do it for him.

And really, would anyone trust a man to say why women do anything? see more…

Real talk about media bias

We hear a lot about media bias. CNN goes one way, Fox news goes the other, but there is a deeper bias that nobody really challenges. This video takes the lessons learned from living through a news event, and blows the lid off of the real media bias.

TRANSCRIPT:

Media bias, people talk about it a lot. Liberal Media Bias. The Conservative Media Empire.

Some see bias as a simple us versus them fight. But it’s not that simple.

In May and June of last year my walk home got a little weird. The events at Gezi park were one of the most extraordinary things I have ever experienced. I found myself getting very angry at the reporting though. Every story failed to capture the experience. It wasn’t just the obvious and shameful failure of the Turkish Media. Everything said internationally made me angry as well. It all seemed infuriatingly incomplete. see more…

Apple continues to fight Samsung (in court)

Apple, which has a plurality share of the smartphone market, has once again taken Samsung to court for supposed theft. Apple sought over $2 billion in damages for patent infringement. CNET reports, “The jury found all of Samsung’s accused gadgets infringed Apple’s ‘quick links’ patent but that none infringed the ‘universal search’ patent or the ‘background sync’ patent. Results were mixed for the ‘slide to unlock’ patent, with some Samsung devices, such as the Galaxy Nexus, found to infringe [on the patent], and others found not to [infringe on the patent]…
The jury awarded Apple only $119.6 million for Samsung’s infringement.” see more…
