    I don't know who else has read the article Kareem Abdul Jabbar wrote on Ferguson (see here: http://time.com/3132635/ferguson-com...class-warfare/ ) but he insists, and I agree, that we not only need to express our anger over police shootings and misconduct but we also have to articulate what we want changed. The only way to really change the discussion is to be specific about what we want and present it to the population in a way they can absorb and understand.

    In that vain, I have taken it upon myself to create a .jpg of the (first round) of laws I want changed in regards to police militarization and police brutality. I wanted to be specific while at the same time conveying the message in as few words as possible.

    I was at a party last night where I met some a few Marines. I was talking to this one guy out on the balcony and I just wanted to get his perspective on everything because I am going to be teaching U.S. History and Economics in the fall. I told him how much I valued the troops perspective and how I think supporting the troops means taking good care of them and not putting them in harms way without an objective and a serious threat to national security. The marine goes,

    "Yeah that why you gotta vote for Ron Paul. He's the only one that has a clue about what the Marine Corp is all about."

    I hadn't mentioned Ron so this blew me away. I've never had someone else, especially a Marine, try to sell me on Ron Paul. After a few minutes of telling him how much of a fan I was he ran inside to get his other buddy how was an even bigger Ron Paul fan than him. He comes out and gives me a big bear huge and says,

    "Whoo!!! Ron Paul baby!! Vote for freedom and the Constitution!!"

    We started talking about the Revolution: A Manifesto and how we need to get more people to read it. He was telling me everything I already knew, that freedom is one thing and you cannot divide it up. That Ron Paul is for freedom and the real American way. I asked him how the troops like Ron, he said that they love him and he is really beginning to influence a lot of them. They started giving me and my friends some free beers because "We need more good Americans like you guys spreading the message of freedom."

    It was a great night because my friends, who listen to my political rants but always relegated them to what they coined "Jeffonomics" or "American History Jeff" realize that the Marines felt the same way I did about the war. They were stunned but came away from the night saying "That was the greatest conversation we ever had." It was years of vindication all rapped into one night.

    My one friends expressed it right as we were leaving when he said "Alright I guess that's straight from the horse's mouth, if he's good enough for Marines he is good enough for me, we gotta get this guy President."

I was worried because the paint...

Since he was a chief in a modern society, he’d never learned the old tribal secrets. He couldn’t look at the sky to predict what the winter was going to be like. "It's going to be a very cold winter." So just to be on the safe side, Oyarde told his tribe that the...

    There are two ways of getting things done: persuasion or coercion. You either convince someone of the value of your ideas or you hold a (literal or metaphorical) gun to their head. The latter has been the norm throughout human history. Most of what we value about the contemporary West is a shift toward the former occurring over the last 250 years or so. However, there’s an important difference...
