Growing numbers of poor Americans find retirement elusive; they must work till they die

There are now more non-military government employees who carry guns than there are U.S. Marines

The U.S. government has been bolstering the powers, privileges and immunities of federal employees for years. Career federal employees now get 8 weeks of PAID vacation annually.

The practice of American law has increasingly departed from its original adversarial model. Over the past century, courts have increasingly favored the state over the citizenry. Here is a story of an Arkansas judge who apparently got into the practice of demanding that male defendants report to his house for “community service.” “[The pictures] depict …
