Thus we tend to wince when libertarians (or many of them, to varying degrees) rush to the defense of elite corporations and prevailing business models and practices as though these were free-market phenomena. First, we think this is factually inaccurate; and second, we think it’s strategically suicidal. Ordinary people generally know firsthand the petty tyranny and bureaucratic incompetence that all too often characterise the world of business; libertarians who try to glamourise that world as an arena of economic rationality and managerial heroism risk coming across as clueless at best, and shills for the ruling class at worse.

Beretta 21A Bobcat
Yup, definitely next year’s Christmas present, so much easier to wrap. The Bobcat is a .22 LR chambered pistol, although there is also a .25 ACP version. Very tiny and compact, I wouldn’t necessarily call it an ideal concealed carry option due to the caliber. I’m not bashing on the .22 LR, but you’d definitely want something bigger.
Ask the Koreans during the LA riots why they needed high capacity magazines.
The FAA doesn’t want pilots to use phones, tablets, or laptops while flying airplanes. It makes perfect sense, but according to rules that have been in the books since 1981, use of such devices was allowed so long as pilots waited until the plane was above 10,000 feet.
I just had a scary thought about Goverment and 3D Printers.
With the ability to print gun parts. Print objects that compete with commercial offerings. Subverting IP laws. I think it wont be in a to distant future that the government would declare personal 3d printers as counterfeiting outfits and there for they will be declared illegal.
Our Government hates people who competes in a open and free market. Goverment also hates people who use their god given freedom, to use their rights too own guns and make parts for those guns by any means, including using 3d printers.
The corny corporate interests also hate anyone who competes with them. Ether in creative world or in the making and inventing of new and neat things. They Always are supporting new regulations to hamper these activities.
These two powers I almost 100% sure will get together and find ways to regulate or out right ban the use of 3d Printers by the normal everyday person. I think they will call it a counterfeiting technology and will be the way they will killed it. They don’t want another tech that opens things to the regular person, like the internet did for us.
Only way it will stay around in some form, is the black market. The same place were Warez, drugs and other things the government does not want you to have go to and hide. If we are lucky this will defy the powers that be like the printing press did. Even with government sanctions and regulations.

A clean environment is important to us all. We have an obligation to maintain our resources and sustain our environment for future generations. Sustaining our environment has led us down the road to environmentalism. Then a strange thing happened. Environmentalism came to a fork in the road. While the rhetoric took one route, the agenda took another. Explore this topic and discover how Agenda 21 will affect you.
