Size designations, applicable counts, and diameters are outlined in Table II of this subpart. The diameter of a whole cucumber is the shortest diameter at the greatest circumference measured at right angles to the longitudinal axis of the cucumber…

As Suspected, OWS Was Populated by White Guys with Money

Don’t pretend you didn’t notice. It’s ok, we all did. Those Occupy Wall Street folks, the trod-upon masses who just wanted a fair shake didn’t seem quite authentic. Watching the footage, you might have noticed the ubiquitousness of North Face jackets. You might have seen their iPhones and video cameras or their Macbooks. Maybe you saw that OWS seemed to feature a whole lot of white men for such a diverse city.

The World Has Not Solved The Problem of Inflation

Throughout the various rounds of quantitative easing enacted by the Federal Reserve in response to a persistently sluggish economy, advocates of loose monetary policy have kept a gleeful eye on the Consumer Price Index, pointing to the lack of measured inflation as evidence for the soundness of their ideas and the groundless paranoia of their detractors.

Journalists Instructed to Report on Benefits of Obamacare: "There's Only Upside"

Earlier this month, we covered a suspect symposium being sponsored by a pro-Obamacare organization, designed to provide journalists with "specialized education in health care reporting”.  The anticipation of media bias was palpable.  Previous revelations of this relationship prompted one reporter to write, "this sounds like a program to teach reporters to write supportive stories about the health care reform law.”

Tyranny is No Respector of Election Cycles

November was rough, but it's time to get back to work. Pick your lip up off the floor, scrape the Romney/Ryan sticker off your back windshield (replace it with something like a Gonzalez or Gadsden Flag, or course) and get back to work. America needs you now more than ever. In case you don't believe me, while we dawdle, Democrats are unleashing statist fury on states like Texas.  Last week, Politico reported:

Looks Like Richard Windsor May Have More Imaginary Friends At EPA

Remember Lisa Jackson and her secret email name? It appears that Richard Windsor wasn't alone. I know, you're as shocked as I am that others may have used fake email addresses to avoid FOIA requests.

Public School District Forced to Compete in Los Angeles

Monopolies don't work, and one of the best things about school choice is that it forces educators and schools to compete against each other for students. This makes everyone step up their game, and the students are the ones to benefit. Some have questioned if public schools would be willing to compete in a free market setting but, in the wake of a parent trigger being invoked in Los Angeles, the local district is doing just that.

HSBC and the Era of Too Big to Fail

Advocates of extensive government regulation of private markets often argue that such measures are necessary to prevent large companies from abusing their market power for illicit gain. What is seldom highlighted, however is that big government and big business inevitably go hand in hand, and that  it is impossible to support one without supporting the other.

Texas Governor Gregg Abbott?

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has demonstrated on many occasions that a pushover, he is not. In fact he’s won the confidence of the citizens of Texas so much that he’s the longest serving Texas AG in history, and won both his reelections by landslides. That’s quite an accomplishment.
