In The News – Wednesday, August 13th Edition

  • The Knockout Game. Interesting that this trend doesn’t seem to be catching on in states where there are liberal carry permit regulations. One punk playing the Knockout Game picked the wrong guy in Michigan.

The average citizen simply can’t fight this abuse of power against a foe that isn’t concerned with attorney’s fees. It’s a perfect example of a government bureaucracy ignoring the law to enforce bureaucratic malfeasance.

  • A U.S. market strategist for Barclays’ says the party is over. Jonathan Glionna writes that “those years of awesome returns are behind us now.” You mean THE Jonathan Glionna? I remember when Jim Bouton the famous baseball pitcher who was famous for his knuckleball was told that he had been traded for Dewey Womack. His response was “You mean THE Dewey Womack?

  • Help Me Stay Rich, Colorado! These ads being run in Colorado to support fracking are great.
