    A few years ago, state leaders got the idea to promote Idaho to the outdoor industry, including gun manufacturers. After all, Idaho is a more firearms-friendly place than most. More than half of Idahoans own guns, and state law shields firearms manufacturers from liability. One North Idaho town — Potlatch — is honing its pitch to attract the gun industry and jobs. Local economic development official BJ Swanson is key to the effort. Not long ago, Swanson drove through an overgrown patch of ground on the outskirts of Potlatch, population 800. It’s a humble spot, but in it she sees...

    The room buzzes with little voices. Little children engage in "mature, dramatic play." An adult helps the children "regulate" and "monitor each other's compliance" with "rules and assigned roles."[1] Each child knows his or her place. Each child does the group's bidding, nothing else. Orwell's 1984? No, a scene played out in thousands of classrooms across America. The drumbeat of collectivism begins in preschool. And a long-dead Soviet psychologist helped define that drumbeat. Months ago, an email from a teacher spurred me to investigate the theories of Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934). My research revealed starry-eyed academics enamored of collectivism.

    DURANT – Hello again, everybody! A fundamental core value we in southern Oklahoma share is a belief in the right to keep and bear arms. That belief is deeply rooted in our shared sense of justice, an understanding that rights flow from God and government’s role is to guarantee and preserve those rights. The Second Amendment rights I have zealously defended as your senator have another benefit: the potential to provide economic strength to our state. Six years ago, I began my effort to attract firearms manufacturers to Oklahoma. Many of these great corporate citizens are located in states openly...

    The ports of West Sacramento, Stockton and Oakland have jointly been awarded $30 million in federal stimulus funds to launch a container barge service between the three ports that will help ease congestion on highways in Northern California. The Port of West Sacramento announced the award Wednesday. The U.S. Department of Transportation is awarding the funding as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s $1.5 billion Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery program. The “inland marine highway” service would be used to transport consumer goods and agricultural products in containers on barges. While the deep-water channel leading to the Port of West...
  • Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) - It's not about Trade, it's about Control

    If you're lucky, you have never heard of the "International Trade in Arms Regulation" treaty, or ITAR. Administered by the State Department through something called the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), this treaty is supposed to keep track of "defense" exports. Unfortunately, what you don't know is about to hurt you. Unintended Consequences DDTC's ITAR process hummed along out of the public view for years, focusing on the major international trade in firearms and military equipment until President Bush II moved to make the directorate 75 percent self-funding. In one fell stroke, he gave the agency the power to...
