$30 million of pork–-err, catfish–worth killing 13.5.2011 Red State
With a looming fight over raising the debt limit and how to get a handle on our $14 trillion debt, there is one issue that keeps popping up in Congress as a blatant example of government redundancy and pure waste: catfish inspection. Yes, you read correctly. There is a brewing fight over the regulation of catfish. Special interest groups slipped language into a bill that would move the regulation of catfish from the Food and Drug Administration to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Sounds simple enough, right? Wrong. This new regulation shift will place unnecessary regulations on businesses, drive up prices for consumers and spend at least $30 million in redundant costs … In the first year alone. Retired Chief of the FDA’s Seafood Processing and Technology Policy Branch Bryon Truglio recently wrote in The Hill : The inspiration for this rush to spend $30 million (to start) of hard earned taxpayer dollars on a non-existent problem is a group of lobbyists and a trade ...

Joe Walsh’s Smackdown of Obama on Immigration 13.5.2011 Red State
Like no other president in American history, President Obama supports the domineering use of government over every facet of our lives. Yet, when it comes to one of the few core functions of government, like border security and the regulation of immigration, he is suddenly tepid about asserting power. Worse, he uses the power of executive agencies to disregard and subvert immigration laws that were duly passed by Congress. Now he is denigrating those who suffer from gang violence along the border and those who seek to fulfill our core constitutional responsibilities. Earlier this week, Obama thought that he would interject his “White House Correspondents’ Dinner level of intellect” into our national security, by accusing Republicans of desiring an alligator-filled moat along the southern border. Today, Congressman Joe Walsh (R-IL) offered a superlative smackdown of Obama’s immigration speech in El Paso through an open letter to the President: “When you consult ...
The media and the state: be careful what you wish for 13.5.2011 Guardian: Comment is Free
If the press would rather people used self-regulation than the courts then it has to make sure that the PCC is a credible regulator Parliament is currently, for the first time in 15 years, debating proposals to reform the libel laws. These laws, to our shame, have made London the forum of choice for the laundering of reputations, and in repudiation of them the American Congress has passed its own . You would never guess this from monitoring the British media, which is presently obsessed with a different threat altogether – the torrent of superinjunctions gagging journalists' ability to report on matters of high public interest. This is a curious state of affairs, not least because it's not clear that a single superinjunction has been ordered against the media so far this year. A superinjunction is one whose existence cannot be reported – as happened when the oil traders, Trafigura, succeeded in gagging the Guardian in 2009 over the existence of a confidential report about toxic waste. It is ...
