New Hampshire Law Points Out the Obvious

New Hampshire is the first state to adopt the Jury Nullification Law. In a nutshell, the law allows attorneys to explain to the jury that if individuals don’t agree with the specific law that the charges are based on or how they were applied in the case, each juror can refuse to convict, even if the accused was technically guilty of said charges. To me, the Founding Fathers wanted this for America. A trial among your peers. If...

Subsidized Chevy Volt Taken Off the Production Line

The Chevy Volt, which is a plugin extended drive hybrid, will be taken off the production line for 5 weeks. The halted Volt production will lay off 1,300 Detroit workers.

With $2.3 Billion of the car’s $3 Billion in subsidies coming  from the Federal Government, the current sales put the subsidized cost of...

According to Blaise Ingoglia from Government Gone Wild, the 2009 total average compensation for Federal employees was...

Celebrating Brave New Times’ 100th Article

It has been just over 5 weeks since Brave New Times first imposed itself on readers around the globe (literally). In that short time, we have hit, what we consider, an admirable first milestone…and that is publication of our 100th article! We couldn’t have done it without our staff writers who rose to the challenge of getting us on the proverbial map. I especially want to recognize Debora Beldowicz, Jeff Olen, Mike DiLalo and Virginia...

Why Our Two-Party System Needs an Overhaul

Our two party system wasn’t designed; it just happened. The founding fathers didn’t decide one day that there could only be two main parties at a time. Much like the assumed two-term presidency came about accidentally because George Washington only served two terms (thank Roosevelt for setting that in stone for us), the two party system mostly arose because there just happened to be two main parties active at the founding...
