California's Plan to Kill The Driverless Car
The FreemanJan 26
Instead of seeing driverless cars as a cheaper, safer, and more efficient mechanism to move people and goods, government bureaucrats are salivating at the possibility of inventing new and exciting ways to stifle innovation long before driverless cars even hit the market. As is so often the case, California leads the way.

What does California propose? First, prospective "drivers" will need a special state-issued certificate to operate a driverless car. To get it, they will need to complete a training regimen offered and paid for by the company that produced the car.

And these companies will not even be allowed to sell the product. Driverless cars will only be ava

First of Its Kind Study Shows No Impairment While Cycling — on Weed
The Free Thought ProjectJan 11
As more and more states legalize the medicinal and recreational use of cannabis, it will inevitably bring challenges to the criminal justice system. As of now, it seems that operating a vehicle under the influence of cannabis is treated the same as operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol.

However, this is a faulty assumption for the state. As we reported earlier, a pioneering study found virtually no driving impairment under the influence of cannabis. This does not

Sorry, George Carlin, Plastic Is Biodegradable
Cato @ LibertyOct 02
Remember George Carlin's hilarious skit about plastics? Here is the transcript:

"The planet ... is a self-correcting system. The air and the water will recover, the earth will be renewed.

Plastic came out of the earth. The earth p
