Happy Hanukkah Advent Calendar – Our 10 Hottest Libertarian Jews

30 Dec
(Our list is for humor – and appreciation – and includes atheists, agnostics, half-Jews, and anyone else we wanted to include, who is arguably Jewish.  We aren’t promising not to do a list of hot libertarian clergy for Easter.  I’m also including Objectivists etc. because a square is a rectangle even if a rectangle isn’t always a square.  So…get your dreidels out for a game of spin the dreidel…

לחיים

and

ליברטי .)

We have 8 days of Hanukkah…so we will be adding a hot Jew every day (before sunset), like an Advent calendar.  Nominate the remaining hot libertarian Jews.  And please, current MOTs, no Ayn Rand, Jane Jacobs, Murray Rothbard, Milton Friedman.  Also feel free to nominate people for the Hanukkah 5776 list.

Adam Kinzinger and the Ron Paul Libertarian Republicans

10 Sep

Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) addresses the DC Young Republicans.  He was an hour late because of a last minute booking on The O’Reilly Factor.

The audience was a largely Ron Paul/Rand Paul/libertarian crowd.  I know because I know them (and I am one) and they asked me to come video it as they thought sparks would fly.

Maybe because Putin has thrown Obama’s Syrian plans into doubt, maybe because Kinzinger (who is also an Air Force officer still doing duty in the reserves) was extremely conciliatory and admitted that the anti-intervention side had real concerns, no sparks flew.
