Leadership Program of the Rockies application deadline August 31

My favorite Colorado organization by far is the Leadership Program of the Rockies. I went through the Program several years ago, learned a lot, made many great connections and, more importantly, lasting friendships.

Conservative: Dems looking 'schizophrenic' on reform

The following appeared today in CNN's political ticker:WASHINGTON (CNN) — The president of a conservative group accused of "astroturfing" the recent protests at congressional town halls suggested Tuesday that a rift is showing in the Democratic Party on health care reform.

Hollywood Tells Consumers What They Can Do with Their DVDs

Last week, RealDVD, a product that allows consumers to download a copy of legally purchased DVDs, was dealt a setback when a court granted a preliminary injunction against the sale of the software.  Judge Marilyn Hall Patel—famous for the ruling that killed Napster—issued the injunction that will keep RealDVD off the market until a copyright infringement case against RealDVD is heard by the courts.  The Hollywood studios filed the suit against RealDVD, making clear their assertion that they not only control content, but also how that content is distributed.  Unlike the many illegal DVD decrypters available on the internet, RealDVD does not remove copyright protections and in fact adds an additional layer of protection to assure that no more than a single copy of the DVD can be downloaded to a hard drive.  Nonetheless, according to Judge Patel, RealDVD violated the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), leaving consumers in a world where it is legal to copy music from a cd to an MP3 player, but it remains illegal for consumers to back up copies of legally purchased DVDs.  The DMCA has turned into a tool for protecting the market share of monopolists, overriding arguments of fair use to the detriment of consumers, competition, and innovation.  For more on the RealDVD issue, see FreedomWorks Foundation’s Issue Analysis “Hollywood vs. Consumers.”

History repeats with Obama's anti-growth policies

During the economic downturn from roughly 1929 to 1939, Franklin Roosevelt implemented a raft of anti-capitalist, anti-growth policies, from wage controls to higher taxes to simple badgering of businesses (especially utilities). The result was that Europe emerged from the depression sooner while Democratic economic policies turned what could have been just a bad recession into the Great Depression.

White House pretends to stop gathering info on dissenting citizens

In a post on the White House blog on Monday evening, the Obama Administration says they are shutting down the flag@whitehouse.gov web site at which they had encouraged to snitch on other citizens who were not agreeing with the White House’s talking points (lies) about health care “reform".

Obama backing away from "public option"

As I’ve been predicting for some time, it appears that any health care reform bill which  might pass the Senate will not have a “public option” in it.  Over the weekend, Barack Obama and representatives of his Administration were carefully trying to backpedal away from the “public option” saying it’s not the essential part of health care reform. Now they’re talking about “co-ops” to compete with private insurers and they’re trying to spin the recent massive public outcry against a government takeover of health care into some sort of political victory.

Health Care Is Not a Right

Before government can guarantee provision of a specific good or service to any one individual, thus creating a so-called “positive right,” it must first take by force the means of producing that very good or service from someone else.Health care is no different. Whether by forcibly appropriating and redistributing the money to purchase care for those who lack it, or by arbitrarily devaluing the time and effort of those who provide it, once a government mandate supplants voluntary exchange, coercion must be used to exercise that “right.”
