    The Biblical concept of binding and loosing pertains to the degree to which actions are constrained by law. To illustrate, by way of secular example section 92.06 of the Akron, Ohio, city ordinances states: “No person shall dye or otherwise color any rabbit or baby poultry, including, but not limited to, chicks and ducklings.” This law has been bound and is thereby enforceable in Akron, Ohio. The Akron citizen is constrained from coloring baby ducks. However, since there are no laws in Akron, Ohio about painting your pet elephant, citizens are loosed (not constrained) in doing so. All citizens of...

    Huffpo/WaPo blogger "superstar" Ezra Klein reveals everthing that you knew was wrong with the left, including their claim that they're smarter and better educated than you. This clownish juvenile deliquent who passes for informed opinion on the left is pleased to reveal that the Constitution is "over a hundred years old," and hence, out of date, irrelevant, and downright confusing. Video at the link.

    Yes, the Constitution is binding By Ezra Klein This morning, I gave a quick interview to MSNBC where I made, I thought, some fairly banal points on the GOP's plan to honor the Constitution by having it read aloud on the House floor. Asked if it was a gimmick, I replied that it was, because, well, it is. It's our founding document, not a spell that makes the traitors among us glow green. It's also, I noted, a completely nonbinding act: It doesn't impose a particular interpretation of the Constitution on legislators, and will have no practical impact on how...

    David Axelrod, senior adviser to President Obama, hinted in an interview on Fox News Sunday that the administration does not view the executive pay restrictions in the economic stimulus bill as binding. Obama will sign the restrictions, which are stricter those he announced less than two weeks ago, into law on Tuesday. But Axelrod said the administration will work with Congress to come up with "an appropriate approach" to curbing excessive pay packages on Wall Street.

    At one end of the street stands the United Nations; at the other end stands the United States Congress. At issue: whether the U.N.'s diplomatic immunity trumps the subpoena power of the U.S. Congress.Volcker has persistently blocked congressional efforts to secure information about the multi-billion-dollar oil-for-food scandal. The genius of the American system of governance is the checks and balances built into the government by the U.S. Constitution and the ultimate authority of the electorate, which can dump the entire government on election day. The U.N. is accountable to no one.

    One of the trends in modern computer science is the push for larger, more generic building blocks. In theory, this leads to faster development cycles but with a less granular flexibility. In practice, I've found that the arrangement of object files (the actual machine-readable code generated from the source code) and their interdependcies plays an often overlooked role in determining the effort necessary to complete a given project. What do I mean by this? Let's take an example from the physical world. A bed of rocks, perhaps alongside a river, "arranges" itself such that the smallest grains of sand slip...
  • Straw gets it wrong on Israel

    <p>British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw's comments equating United Nations resolutions on Iraq with those concerning Israel ("Straw's remarks spur protest in Jerusalem," World, Friday) demonstrate either a total lack of appreciation of the differences between the two situations or an underhanded attempt to sell out Israel to appease Arab public opinion.</p>
