The new pope is making the case that caring for the poor doesn’t make you a communist, and he is right. What can be argued makes you a communist, or if you want to be pedantic and stick to the definition that communism means the state owns everything, what it makes you is a collectivist douchebag, is when you expect government to do it after it uses force to confiscate the earnings of others, … Read more

One of the more controversial provisions of the Patriot Act was to broaden the “sneak-and-peek” power for federal law enforcement officials. The provision allows investigators to conduct searches without informing the target of the search.
