The IRS likes it's correspondence the way or Obama likes his voters… Undocumented!
Darn! I just sent in my NRA dues. Well, I won't make the same mistake next year.
How sad to read this. Up until now, Dr. Carson was giving me a reason to vote. We didn't win the Revolutionary war by compromising with the British. We didn't win the second world war by compromising with Hitler. This is not a game. This is a battle. If you talk about principles, I will listen. If you talk about politics, I will ignore you. You cannot compromise with liars. They will not keep their end of the deal. Just like it was foolish to believe Hitler when he promised Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Finland, Belgium; "If you like your country, you can keep your country!" Going along, to get along is not compromising. It is appeasement! We will win this battle only when we convince others that we are right, and the enemy is wrong. Dr. Ben Carson: if you can't do that, then take up another hobby.
Jesus was a big-government socialist??? What did big government ever do for Jesus? Oh yeah, there was that crucifixion thing.
The four-minute mile was broken in 1954 by Roger Bannister. Who's going to fix THAT???
The problem with 'intentions' is they are only that: intentions. For example, most 'experts' intend to help us by telling us that it is heart-healthy to eat a low-fat diet. But that may be the consensus, but it is as wrong as the global-warming 'consensus'. As an example, after years of drugs and dieting and no improvement, my wife finally dropped her triglycerides from 240 to 79 in two months, by eating a low-carb, HIGH-fat diet... and with no drugs. The point I want to make by this example is that central planning is too rigid, no matter what the intention is. When he consensus is wrong (as it is here, and is likely the very cause of the obesity epidemic), it adversely effect millions of people. Like it or not, you must let people think for themselves. There is no free lunch-advice; you yourself must decide what to eat; you must decide what to do and what to think. Remember, just because someone works for the government doesn't 'necessarily' [read that sarcastically] make them smarter than you.
Attacking Snowden is like going after Paul Revere for leaking British military secrets. And this thing about, "Oh my gosh, he went to communist countries!!' is the lamest guilt by association tactic. He went where he would be safe and free. The U.S. is not the same country it used to be... tyranny is as tyranny does. Another thing, why isn't Queen Hillary coming to Snowden's defense with 'WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE???!!!"

Interesting column for the most part, but I fail to see how Eduardo Saverin is included. You simply say, "it is generally assumed that he is cut from the same idealistic cloth", but weak accusation like this is no better than Obama saying the creator of the YouTube video (for which he blamed Benghazi), is a "shady character." If you don't have any better evidence to share than your 'general assumption' about somebody, than it makes you look like you are grasping for examples. As far as I can tell Saverin is just the U.S. version of Gérard Depardieu; someone who decided he's not going to take it anymore.

I don't understand how increased bullion sales can indicate more demand because isn't it true that for every buyer there's another seller?
Sounds like you 'really' understood Atlas Shrugged! Yeah right... it's all about not opening doors for old ladies. I hope you didn't spend too much time reading the book, because you didn't get much out of it. I 'had' the greatest respect for Cato, but I have to re-think that opinion now. What an dumb explanation of altruism. I can't explain it any better than Ayn Rand, so this is not intended for the writer of this article, but altruism is when you 'sacrifice', that is when you destroy value. There is no sacrifice when you donate time or money to something or someone worthwhile. It is not altruistic to support and further something of value to you. When even someone at Cato doesn't understand that, we're certainly doomed.
