Halting Global Tax Tyranny

This piece was originally published July 19, 2006 in The Washington Times. Should the U.N. be able to tax you? Over the last several years, officials at the U.N. and other international organizations have been hatching schemes to directly tax the world's people. Traditionally, only sovereign governments have the right to tax. The U.N. and other international organizations have largely depended on their ability to extract dues or other payments from their sovereign members.

Tax Activist Returns to Oregon’s Political Stage

Sidelined for the past four years because of legal troubles brought on by a racketeering lawsuit, Oregon’s most prolific initiative author — Bill Sizemore — is getting back into the fight. Sizemore is promoting an initiative measure for the November ballot to prohibit insurance companies from raising customers’ rates solely because they have poor credit history. It’s a departure from previous measures Sizemore has sponsored to curb the political power of public employee unions, limit the size of government and reduce taxes on Oregonians.

Internet's "Grandfather" Skeptical of Neutrality

In a debate yesterday between professor David Farber, called the “grandfather” of the Internet for his pioneering work which provided much of the groundwork for later innovators, and Vinton Cerf, “father” of the Internet and chief Internet Evangelist at Google, Farber expressed a healthy dose of skepticism towards government involvement in the Internet, fearing that it would be a small step to the government regulating content as other nations, such as China, do. "Given a foot in the door, I think that door will open," he said.

A Hefty Slice of Pork for the Metro

These days, it seems as if pork spending goes just about everywhere. Mariachi music in Nevada middle schools, a bridge to nowhere in Alaska, and thousands of other pet projects continue to fatten the federal budget deficit as Members of Congress look appeal to every special interest in their constituencies.  The latest project to be added to the list is the D.C. Metro, which looks to capture $1.5 billion in federal dollars if Rep.
