Is Big Government Too Small? 15.12.2011 Inc
How well would your company be doing if the number of employees remained static while your customer base grew by a third and you started providing dozens of more services? In the eyes of the American public, it’s a lousy time to be Big Government and a great time to be Small Business. Fear of The Authorities is at near-record levels, while faith in business of all sizes just keeps growing. What’s odd about the Government vs. Business split is that it seems to be at odds with each group’s actual influence in the nation. According to a new Gallup study , 64 percent of Americans say big government is the greatest threat to the country. This is just one percent lower than the all-time high. Small business, by contrast, is positively beloved – the second most trusted institution in the U.S. behind only the Armed Forces. And, better yet, the public considers business owners the most trusted when it comes to knowing how to save the economy . Big Business also does relatively ...

We must defeat SOPA: Tech at Night Special 15.12.2011 Red State
Ordinarily I use Tech at Night to cover a variety of topics that come my way, and I have them in my queue for tonight. But with over 30 items to consider and integrate, most of them on SOPA, I’m shelving the rest for Friday, and discussing just one topic tonight: We must defeat SOPA in the House. It is entirely unacceptable, and I believe worthy of primary challenges, for any Republican to back this bill. I’m going to make a list, and I’m going to make noise about this. I hope you do, too. SOPA is the Stopping Online Piracy Act, the House’s counterpart to the Senate PROTECT IP act. SOPA contains a grab bag of provisions intended to stop copyright, trademark, and patent infringements abroad, but Title I of the bill is intolerable, fails to achieve its goals, and creates a massive power grab online for this man by applying unaccountable censorship and regulation to Americans on the Internet. That’s right. Eric Holder has been dreaming of censoring the Internet ...
