Why Green Buildings are Wasteful

Slate's got a smart article on green building certifications, which Washington D.C. now requires for all major city buildings, public and private. Guess what?

The Causes of the Subprime Crunch

The New York Times suggests that some of the current waves in the subprime credit market might not be caused by nasty companies in need of more federal regulation, but by something a little more obvious, and more clearly malicious: mortgage fraud.  And it turns out that fending off this sort of fraud isn't a big concern for law enforcement agencies:

Friday Morning Linkage

Good morning! Posting at FreedomTalks will be slower over the next week as we at FreedomWorks pull our noses out of the newspapers, shut down Google Reader, and head home for the holidays. Who knows? Some of us might even turn our Blackberries off!

Dick Durbin Doesn't Sleep. He Spends.

This is great. Over at Red State, Rob Bluey points us to a question asked by Sen. Jim DeMint: Is it really possible to read a 3,417 page omnibus bill in a mere 46 hours and 8 minutes -- all the time given to Senators before a vote?

Funding the Fruit (Fly Research)

So, while the WGA is on strike, we've all been suffering without our Letterman Top-10 lists.  It's probably not as funny (more like depressing), but Heritage has a list of the top 10 reasons to oppose the budget omnibus.  You should read them all, but here are two of the entries to get you started.

Bush to Sign Energy Bill Today

President Bush will sign the new energy bill today.  The good news is that a multibillion dollar tax on energy companies -- which would've quickly trickled down the pipeline into a price-hike for consumers -- was dropped, as were alternative energy mandates.
