As we have gotten further from the ideal of a just, equitable, and small, government, it becomes more and more important to see clearly what is happening. BLC is about bucking the narrative, and applying the same rules and standards to all.

Incompetence

In 2002, a tanker carrying 9,900 gallons of gas exploded under a bridge in Birmingham, AL, killing the driver, and causing the steel supports to sag around 10 feet on one side (3m). That was January 5th. On January 21, 2002, work began on the removal of the 290', 6...

Rushing To Condemn

I stayed off Twitter on Sunday. Less as an intentional action, and more as I just didn't check it because I didn't think about it. So this morning, when I saw the counter of unread posts, I knew one of two things had happened - either William Shatner (@williamshatner)...
