(Michelle Diament) A $1.3 trillion government spending package will aid those with disabilities who wander while increasing special education funding and tackling restraint and seclusion in schools, among other issues.

The legislation signed by President Donald Trump late last week funds the federal government through September.

My Commentary: The State will now be funding “voluntary tracking devices,” which will be available to “vulnerable children with autism or adults with Alzheimer’s who are at risk of wandering.” So… how long before “voluntary” becomes “mandatory”?

Inspired to Promote Voluntaryism After Yet Another Viewing of Charlie Chaplin’s Famous Speech in “The Great Dictator”

The following debate originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Katherine C…

Katherine C.: A chilling plea from the past.

Charlie Chaplin’s Incredible Speech:

RaynNo Masters No Rulers!

"As for politics, I'm an Anarchist. I hate goverments and rules and fetters. Can't stand caged animals. People must be free." - Charlie Chaplin

Katherine C.: We take for granted the comforts we have with government. Safety being one of them. I know there are exceptions, but we’ve talked about this before. You never gave me a good solution as to stopping serial killers and the like from attacking people that can’t fight back. Your only solution is private security and god knows how they’d get paid because there’d be no money, so I’m assuming we’d revert back to a barter economy.

Rayn:

Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency ask the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But, conscience ask the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.” - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

State Troopers Are Tax-Funded Domestic Terrorists

Father ‘Utterly Terrified’ After Trooper Points Gun at His 7-Year-Old During Traffic Stop:
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2016/08/16/father-utterly-terrified-after-trooper-points-gun-at-his-7-year-old-during-traffic-stop/

(Amy B Wang) At first, Kenneth Walton thought the Arizona state trooper following him and his 7-year-old daughter wanted to warn him of a broken taillight.

They were in a rental car, on a stretch of Interstate 40 between Las Vegas and Flagstaff, Ariz., on what was supposed to be a fun Grand Canyon vacation. It was dark, and Walton knew he hadn’t been speeding, so — not thinking much of it — he pulled over on an off-ramp, rolled down his driver’s side window and waited.

That’s when things went “terribly awry,” according to the San Francisco man’s account of what happened last Thursday.

“Tonight, I was arrested at gunpoint by an Arizona highway patrol officer who threatened to shoot me in the back (twice) in front of my 7-year-old daughter,” Walton wrote on Facebook, hours after the incident. “For a moment, I was certain he was going to kill me for no reason. I’m alive, and I need to share the story.”

My Commentary: Tax-funded terrorism… because, muh “law and order,” and muh “safety.”

Random Checkpoints Are Always Implemented Under the Guise of “Safety”

“Good Intentions” Do Not Justify the Ill Effects of Meddling State Bureaucrats

A Rule Meant to Reduce Neurosurgeon’s Fatigue Went Terribly Wrong:
http://www.learnliberty.org/blog/good-intentions-bad-policy-neurosurgeon-regulation/

Richard Menger, a neurosurgery resident at Louisiana State University’s Health Sciences Center, tells a surprising tale in an article for the Foundation for Economic Education: how a rule meant to reduce doctors’ fatigue made neurosurgery less safe.

The rule was made with good intentions. Tired doctors are more likely to make mistakes, so by limiting the hours medical residents are permitted to work in a given week, there should be fewer tired doctors making fewer mistakes.

The good intentions didn’t lead to good results, however…
