Tech at Night: One great idea and two bad ideas in the House 20.8.2011 Red State
Happy Friday. We’ll start off this edition with Marsha Blackburn’s own post at RedState . There’s a reason I would like to see her rise higher on Energy and Commerce: she knows her stuff and is a fierce proponent of conservative values. I agree with her: government is not the solution to the privacy problem. I don’t agree with Joe Barton, whose plans for heavy-handed regulation make me glad he didn’t get the chairmanship. “There oughta be a law” is no way for a Member of Congress to think. As frustrating to me as Barton is Lamar Smith’s plans to push yet another bad Patrick Leahy bill, PROTECT IP , through Judiciary. I’ve covered that bill in this space extensively. We don’t need, and can’t benefit from, a national censorship blacklist online. The guilty won’t be affected much and only the innocent will work. It’s like gun control, up to and including the unconstitutionality. Yet another reason to oppose ...

Obama to farmer: ‘Call the USDA.’ 20.8.2011 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
So, Wednesday – while campaigning in Illinois, although I understand that we’re supposed to pretend that Obama isn’t actually campaigning, for some bizarre reason – the President of the United States faced with a technical question (the effects of new EPA’s soil and dust regulations on Illinois farmers) by a technical expert (an Illinois farmer). Despite the fact that the technical question is in fact supposedly within Barack Obama’s level of expertise, the President decided instead to make slight fun of the probably-not-voting-for-him-anyway technical expert by chiding him about believing rumors and suggesting that the technical expert call the Department of Agriculture. Well. There was a Politico reporter who actually decided to see what would happen if s/he did precisely that. So s/he did . As near as I can tell, the original inquiry about “information related to the effects of noise and dust pollution rules on Illinois farmers” turned into a ...
George Pyle: Good rules make good business karma 20.8.2011 Salt Lake Tribune
By XXXXXX The Salt Lake Tribune Published Aug 19, 2011 05:00PM MDT “Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.” — MARK TWAIN Suppose you ran a business. And suppose you were a decent human being. And suppose I just repeated myself. In much of life, there are uncomfortable choices that have to be made between self-interest and the common good, between what’s morally right and what’s economically beneficial. In business, the dilemma comes on the horns of your wallet or your soul. And the key pressure to favo... ...

Rick Perry has a funny definition of 'miracle' 19.8.2011 Daily Kos
Reality : Unemployment Rates for States Monthly Rankings Seasonally Adjusted June 2011 18. Massachusetts : 7.6% 26. Texas : 8.2% 15.2% of the Texas workforce is employed by the government compared to the national average of 14.4%. And when Texas leads the nation in minimum wage jobs, well, that's not a record I'd call "miraculous." But jobs isn't the only place that Massachusetts kicks Texas ass . As Krugman points out, Texas has a significantly higher unemployment rate than Massachusetts (8.2% vs. 7.6% in June 2011) and the percentage of people without health insurance in Texas is the country's highest (26% of the total population) while Massachusetts has the lowest uninsured rate at 5%. We can further note that Texas suffered worse unemployment from the recession than Massachusetts did: in 2008 it had a lower unemployment rate than Massachusetts, while today it is higher. Its full-year unemployment rate for 2008 was 4.9%, while that of Massachusetts was 5.3%. In ...
