Look, We Know You're Called "Governors," but That Doesn't Mean You Need to OVER-govern!

It seems that America's governors in a tizzy over global warming, and they're planning to institute every harebrained scheme to help stop it. These Wile E. Coyotes of American politics are desperately laying down blankets of oppressive energy regulations to catch up to the global warming menace, their proverbial Road runner. Unfortunately, nearly every single scheme they want to try is just plain unfeasible. First, ethanol.

North Carolina FreedomWorks Members Lobby Against Corporate Welfare

< p class="MsoNormal">NORTH CAROLINA.  On Monday, September 10, 20 members of North Carolina FreedomWorks traveled to Raleigh to support Governor Easley’s veto of a $40 million incentives package for Goodyear.  The activists came from as far away as our beautiful mountains.  They came wearing t-shirt made especially for the occasion.  They came with handouts for legislators.  They came with the determination to make a difference.  Activists spent the day meeting with legislators and sharing the FreedomWorks message that incentives are bad public policy giving

"Market-based?" Hardly.

The Wall Street Journal has a good piece today discussing the rift between economists and politicians over whether global warming policy should involve a straight tax on carbon use--called a Pigovian tax, after this guy--or a cap-and-trade system.

Farm Subsidies: More Obsolete Than Your Grandpa's Tractor

Here in South Dakota, folks don't like government intervention in their lives. That is, unless we're discussing farm subsidies. People out here go crazy over this free cash from Uncle Sam, and any assertion against it is booed. In an article for RealClearPolitics, Robert Samuelson discusses the history of federal farm subsidies, and the massive money pit they have become. In the 37 years since 1970, the federal government has spent $578 billion on farm subsidies.

Good News for People Who Like Bad News

BY Peter Suderman

When it comes to the economy, no one likes bad news—no one, that is, except for liberal politicians. Why? Because liberals rely on bad news to sell their policies of choice. In fact, their whole approach to the economy is almost entirely predicated on it. From health care to social security to global warming, their number one tactic is to appeal to anxiety, fear, and worry. It's in their political interests to convince the public that things are bad, very bad—and probably going to get worse.
