Lobbyists: Not as bad as the Dems say

Caucus season is fun in Iowa. That is, unless you are trying to watch television. One can't watch Saturday Night Live without seeing a "floating cross" or hearing the meaningless mantra "change, change, change." It follows that last night, in between push-polling calls, I saw several commercials from Democratic candidates decrying lobbyists and their "grip" on Washington. Those evil, greedy slimeballs always try to bribe our angelic elected officials, right? That's what the Dems would have you think, but it's not true. You see, lobbyists are written into the Constitution.

Urgent: Protect State Sovereignty

< p>Is there a better way to kick off the New Year than with a good rally for the cause of Freedom?  < p style="text-align: left" class="MsoNormal">FreedomWorks Oklahoma invites you to attend a rally to support State Representative Charles Key’s legislation designed to protect Oklahomans from unwarranted federal intrusion that puts our unalienable rights to life, liberty, and property in jeopardy.  This includes his Tenth Amendment Resolution which re-affirms the scope of authority granted to states and the limitations placed on national government as set forth in the US

New Year, New Taxes

I'm a Virginia resident, and I got a new (to me) car last year. Looks like I made it just in time.

Milton Friedman: Winning Debates from the Grave

Naomi Klein is a sort of hilarious far-left pundit whose most recent book, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, argues that cruel Milton Friedman free-market types use major disasters to advance a nefarious free-market agenda. I call her hilarious because, though she gets pretty good press, her ideas are so outlandish that no one of real importance takes her terribly seriously, so she's sort of fun to have around as an example of wacky liberal ideas taken to their laughable extreme.

The UnFairTax

The Washington Post has a good editorial on the many, many problems with the FairTax. Much of it will be familiar to those who've seen Bruce Bartlett's writing on the idea -- the distortions involved in calling a 30% tax a 23% tax, the unlikelihood that even a 30% tax would be sufficient -- but they do make at least one point worth quoting in full:

Starbucks: The Best News Any Local Coffeehouse Ever Had

Commercialization, the lament often goes, is killing our culture! Mom and pop stores are closing down. Main street USA is losing its character in a flood of impersonal national chains. Wal-Mart! Starbucks! If you've paid any attention to the debates over retail during the last decade or so, this should all be familiar. But as so often happens, the familiar story isn't the most accurate one.

Opening Up Health Insurance Markets

What's the single easiest thing we could do to fix health insurance?  Allow individuals to purchase insurance across state lines, thus creating a national market and quickly, efficiently deregulating the options for every person in every state.   Right now, Rep.
