Welcome to Liberrants, a blog dedicated to editorials, discussions, and studies of all things libertarian. Don't let the title mislead you; it's merely my attempt to be creative in describing myself as a "hopeful curmudgeon" who embraces the goal of the free, peaceful, economically vibrant society envisioned by America's founding fathers.

A critically thinking curmudgeon whose goal, in addition to creatively venting about the imperfect world in which we live, is to induce critical thinking in others. The ultimate goal is to help bring about a peaceful world in which we can all live in freedom.

Pentagon Backs Down And Uses Common Sense, At Least This Once

Apparently the public outcry to the story behind my last posting was so negative that the armchair warrior beancounters inside the Five-sided Asylum on the Potomac have backed down. That's great news, but don't expect this flash of rationality and decency to set a precedent. It's only a matter of time before the bureaucratic beast does something else to assault the sensibilities of decent Americans by spitting in the troops' face in some other egregious fashion. And you can take that to the Pentagon Federal Credit Union.
