Swain County North Carolina FreedomWorks Meets

Bryson City, North Carolina.  On April 4th, over 50 FreedomWorks members from Swain County met to hear how their property rights were in danger.  From having water meters being put on their private wells to limiting where you can hunt, the state seems to be encroaching like never before. We also had a recap on the “Land Transfer Tax” from last year and what counties are pressing for it now. County Commissioner David Monteth (D) updated FreedomWorks on the efforts by county commissioners on taxes and property rights.

Neutrality Isn't Neutral

Since we're talking about net neutrality, I should point out that there are calls to extend net neutrality beyond the internet and onto things like wireless telephone networks. As I wrote last year, Columbia law prof Tim Wu has been on the forefront of this movement.

Can Competition Result From Mergers?

There have been a number of folks—not least the lawyers at Google—worrying that the potential Microsoft/Yahoo merger might reduce competition, or give consumers fewer choices, or just plan be bad for the internet (whatever that means). Basically, these are all code-words for antitrust concerns. Now, as a card-carrying antitrust skeptic (for more, see here), I'm obviously not moved by any of these fears. But aside from generalized opposition to government intervention, it's important to remember that, in many cases, mergers actually make the marketplace more competitive. And that certainly seems to be the case with Microsoft and Yahoo. Here's the Wall Street Journal:

The Housing Bailout Backlash

BY Luke Mullins

With the national housing crisis gathering steam, a growing number of lawmakers and economists have signaled increasing support for a bailout of struggling homeowners. But while images of vacant houses and panicked borrowers have triggered sympathy—not to mention political enthusiasm—for a taxpayer-funded rescue, objections to big-government intervention have created a small but spirited backlash against it.

The Biofuel Brew Ha-Ha

BY Peter Suderman

In Germany, they call it "liquid bread." Here in the U.S., frat boys and hipsters cultivating an ironic air call them brewskies. Most of us just refer to it as "beer." But whatever your name for the stuff, there's little point in denying that people in both countries love their beer. The difference right now, however, is that while we Americans can continue to toss 'em back as we always have, German beer prices are skyrocketing. Who or what is the culprit? Corporate greed, perhaps, or an alcohol tax designed to push German beer drinkers to kick their six-pack habit?
