    One of the most vocal owners in professional sports did not mince words when asked for his thoughts of the debate over net neutrality at a conference Wednesday. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is set to vote on the reforms later this month. “That will f**k everything up,” said Mark Cuban at the Code/Media conference in Laguna Niguel, Calif, Re/Code reported. Cuban is the owner of the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) Dallas Mavericks and co-host of ABC’s Shark Tank. Later this month, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will vote on a proposal by the group’s chairman, Tom Wheeler, that will...

    The closest my mother and stepfather ever got to the Internet was a WebTV set top box we bought for their kitchen TV.  Like most non-technical people, if I talked to them about technology and policy, I lost their attention immediately.  This is the reaction people get when I mention “Net Neutrality”.  It’s a technology and policy issue, and it’s not well understood, so we have to fight the MEGO (my eyes glaze over) factor. Net Neutrality is about a lie.  Three lies, in fact. Three lies that lead to one bad policy conclusion:  you didn’t build this; you don’t...

    The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on Thursday issued its latest hours-of-service proposal, though the agency has yet to decide if truckers should be allowed 10 or 11 hours of daily driving time. The proposal retains the 34-hour restart provision that allows drivers to restart their weekly clocks after 34 consecutive off-duty hours. However, FMCSA said the restart will have to include two consecutive off-duty periods from midnight to 6:00 a.m. In addition, FMCSA said drivers will be allowed to use the restart only once during any seven-day period. As part of an earlier court settlement, FMCSA must publish a...

    The TSA chose Meg McLain for special screening. They wanted her to go through the new porno-scanners. When she opted out, TSA agents raised an enormous ruckus. When she asked some question about what they planned to do to her, they flipped out. TSA agents yelled at her, handcuffed her to a chair, ripped up her ticket, called in 12 local Miami cops and finally escorted her out of the airport. Listen to her story as she told it on radio show Free Talk Live last night. Things are truly getting scary.

A statement from Durbin's office said further treatment is not expected. It said the preliminary biopsy results "demonstrate a favorable prognosis" and Durbin should be able to resume a full schedule as early as next week.

    BP will this week step up its fight against an "unconstitutional" proposal to ban it from new US offshore drilling, which the British Embassy has warned could be seen as protectionism. US lawmakers have been working for more than a month on new legislation to stop any company from winning offshore oil licences if it has contributed to the deaths of more than 10 workers in the last seven years. The proposal cleared another hurdle by passing through the House of Representatives late on Friday night, but it still has some way to go before becoming law. Its progress has...

H.R. 5741 will give the President of the United States the power to require all American citizens between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform either military service or civilian service in the interests of "national defense and homeland security." It would also give him the power to require citizens to join the military during wartime to meet the manpower needs of the military.

    Last night, as part of a procedural vote on the emergency war supplemental bill, House Democrats attached a document that “deemed as passed” a non-existent $1.12 trillion budget. The execution of the “deeming” document allows Democrats to start spending money for Fiscal Year 2011 without the pesky constraints of a budget. The procedural vote passed 215-210 with no Republicans voting in favor and 38 Democrats crossing the aisle to vote against deeming the faux budget resolution passed. Never before -- since the creation of the Congressional budget process -- has the House failed to pass a budget, failed to propose...

    [Liberty magazine, July 1989] To say that the oil spill has been blown up to hysterical dimensions is a grave understatement. Hysteria abounds everywhere, and everywhere the term "disaster" is freely used. Even Pat Buchanan, who of all the media commentators I thought would be most resistant to the wiles of environmentalism, used that term. The Idiotic Overstatement Award of the Year goes to Alaska Judge Kenneth Rohl, who opined about the oil spill, "We have a manmade destruction that has not been equaled, probably, since Hiroshima." Hundreds of thousands of innocent Japanese were massacred at Hiroshima; that's a disaster....

    In response to a flood of Facebook and YouTube videos that depict police abuse, a new trend in law enforcement is gaining popularity. In at least three states, it is now illegal to record any on-duty police officer. Even if the encounter involves you and may be necessary to your defense, and even if the recording is on a public street where no expectation of privacy exists. The legal justification for arresting the "shooter" rests on existing wiretapping or eavesdropping laws, with statutes against obstructing law enforcement sometimes cited. Illinois, Massachusetts, and Maryland are among the 12 states in which...

    Government Retirement: Democrats have obliquely admitted they covet Americans' pensions. Last week, congressional Republicans told them to stay away. The shame is that they had to do anything at all. The first rumblings were heard in the 1990s, when Democrats were said to be coming after our retirement accounts. Back then, the warnings were easy to pass off as hyperbole or a cranky conspiracy theory. Today, they pass as prescient. In January, Bloomberg reported the "U.S. Treasury and Labor Departments will ask for public comment as soon as next week on ways to promote the conversion of 401(k) savings and...

The move could clear the way for Obama to claim victory on two of his most significant domestic initiatives in a single signing ceremony. Administration officials and House leaders have pressed aggressively for the addition in recent days. But key senators are objecting, arguing that political resistance in the Senate and the rapidly rising cost of the education measure could jeopardize efforts to push health-care reform...

According to Bachman, the bill would nationalize the entire financial system, representing nearly 20 percent of the US exonomy, and would give the economic Czar the power to regulate salaries down to the level of...

    The other day a story came out in the Washington Post indicating that Senate plans for “health reform” could very much end up coming down to this: Get healthy or the get taxed to death, with the emphasis on dying sooner so you can get the hell out of the way. So, in the interest of brevity, let’s just break down an April 2009 report by Politico, when the debate over national health takeover was just beginning so soon after America woke up to the fact that Democrats (and Democrat lite Senators Olympia Snow and Susan Collins) had Obuggered us...

  • What "crisis management" means to the Democrats

    09/20/2009 10:36:24 AM PDT · by street_lawyer · 157+ views
    "Crisis management" for the Democrats means that they create the crisis and then manage it by a government takeover. The insurance industry is a perfect example.

In fact given how government has removed real manufacturing from the scene, government manufactured crises form the largest sector in our economy. Now that State Government has...

    A RWJF survey summarized in the September 14, 2009 edition of the New England Journal of Medicine shows that 62.9 percent of physicians nationwide support proposals to expand health care coverage that include both public and private insurance options—where people under the age of 65 would have the choice of enrolling in a new public health insurance plan (like Medicare) or in private plans. The survey shows that just 27.3 percent of physicians support a new program that does not include a public option and instead provides subsidies for low-income people to purchase private insurance. Only 9.6 percent of doctors...

    B. Hussein Obama recognizes his Waterloo is on the horizon. To try and turn back the tide, Commander Ego wrote a lengthy screed for Pravda, aka, the NY Times this past weekend. I guess when you are the anti-president, you can pull some strings and get a column in Pravda. In that piece, the Czar’s Czar said: Our nation is now engaged in a great debate about the future of health care in America. And over the past few weeks, much of the media attention has been focused on the loudest voices. What we haven’t heard are the voices of...
