    Norm says No ^ | Norm Matloff
    Hi, Norm Matloff here. I’m a professor of computer science at the University of California, Davis, and formerly was a statistics professor at that university, but I also write about social issues. As the saying goes, “My life is an open book”–you can read the details of my background in my online bio. I’ve written op-eds for the New York Times, the Washington Post, Bloomberg View, CNN and so on. Bloomberg gathers together its op-eds grouped by author; click here to see mine, and thus get an idea of my interests and views. (SNIP) In this blog, my topics will...

    The Constitutional rights of an entire town were violated Friday, April 19, 2013. The Constitution was put out of order, deactivated by an undeclared state of exception, -- complete with "papers please" searches and seizures and military hardware and weapons all over the streets.

  • Norming Guns Away: Warning about the United Nations

    Scottsdale, AZ --(Ammoland.com)- We American gun-owners need to become more familiar with the process of “norming.” The “norm” of civilian disarmament already surrounds our country and has the potential to nullify our Second Amendment right. When global firearm-prohibitionists speak about “norming,” they are actually discussing the process wherein society becomes increasingly hostile to the possession of arms in the hands of civilians. This standard, or ‘norm,’ was deliberately created during several decades of lies about the safety and use of firearms, their benefits to society, and the kind of people who possess them. And yet, we gun-owners remain unaware of...
  • A Return to the Norm (All 2010 did was undo the two-stage Democratic wave of 2006 to 2008)

    For all the turmoil, the spectacle, the churning — for all the old bulls slain and fuzzy-cheeked freshmen born — the great Republican wave of 2010 is simply a return to the norm. The tide had gone out; the tide came back. A center-right country restores the normal congressional map: a sea of interior red, bordered by blue coasts, and dotted by blue islands of urban density. Or to put it numerically, the Republican wave of 2010 did little more than undo the two-stage Democratic wave of 2006 to 2008, in which the Democrats gained 54 House seats combined (precisely...

    Former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman reportedly is considering a run for chairmanship of the Republican National Committee and has begun talking to associates about taking on Michael Steele should the embattled current chairman seek another term in January. Coleman plans to attend the RNC's summer meeting next month in Kansas City, Mo., in part to be on hand for a tribute to longtime New Jersey Committeeman David Norcross, who is stepping down from his party post. But senior Republicans say Coleman's appearance will allow him to meet the party members who will pick the next chairman and signal to them...

    In fact, it took Franken, the DFL-endorsed candidate for the U.S. Senate, roughly 15 seconds before he was taking his first verbal roundhouse at Coleman, the Republican incumbent. In response to a question from an ag journalist about energy independence, Franken said, "Norm Coleman is in the pocket of Big Oil. He's received more contributions from Big Oil than any politician in the history of Minnesota.'' There was a hush in the massive tent at the annual Farmfest, which is being held near Morgan, about 100 miles west of the Twin Cities. One minute, people had been strolling through the...

    United States Senate candidates Norm Coleman and Paul Wellstone jabbed one another over prescription drugs Wednesday.During a campaign stop in Alexandria, Coleman outlined his prescription drug plan to a room full of senior citizens at Nelson Gables in Alexandria.Coleman took direct aim at the fact that Wellstone promised six years ago to get a plan done and has been on the Senate Health Committee for 12 years, yet has failed to pass a prescription drug plan for Minnesota’s seniors."If I were in the U.S. Senate there would be a prescription drug plan today that seniors would have access to," Coleman...
