Court Upholds Freedom of Speech

Last week the Supreme Court ruled that unions cannot use a member's mandatory dues for political activity without their explicit consent. Essentially, they cannot force you to support a political candidate against your will. This is an expansion on the 1988 case, Communication Workers vs. Beck, where the court said that unions could not use dues for politics if a member objected. Now the union needs explicit consent to use the dues, the burden is no longer on the worker to complain.

Revolt in the air over tax reform

BY MICHAEL POLLICK

While Florida lawmakers think they passed revolutionary property tax reform, what they might have done is put a property tax revolt into high gear. Throughout the state, grass-roots groups and elected county property appraisers are girding for war. They are adamant about bypassing the Legislature and putting their own reforms before voters through petitions. The factions seeking do-it-yourself reform include: Son of Save Our Homes

Frontline is a False Start for Consumers and Taxpayers.

There is quite a political dust-up in Washington over a spectrum proposal in front of the Federal Communications Commission.  I’m sure the name was market-tested – Frontline – to generate political support.  The gist of the idea is to reserve valuable waterfront property, in this case a band of the 700 MHz spectrum – for a “public private partnership” that would ostensibly put new resources in the hands of first responders.  Everyone supports police, firemen and others on the “frontline” right?  Yes, but that doesn’t mean the Frontline proposal is good for consumers, taxpayers or even, first responders.

Action plan on climate is all wet

BY David Harsanyi

The goal is clear. To fight global warming, Mayor John Hickenlooper would like Denver to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions by 4.4 million metric tons by the year 2020 - comparable to eliminating about a half a million cars. The first step in achieving this objective was laid out in Denver's Climate Action Plan two weeks ago. And according to folks in the mayor's office, it experienced significant blowback after Matt Drudge ran a link on his website revealing some of its more radical elements.

Denver's Illogical Climate Action Plan

The Denver Post has a great op-ed today about Denver mayor John Hickenlooper's "Climate Action Plan" which seeks to reduce CO2 emissions. This intrusive proposal infringes on the privacy rights of the citizens of Denver by penalizing them for the 'excessive use' of natural gas and electricity. Columnist David Harsanyi points out the obvious flaws to this plan:

$20 Million Cell Phone Bill

In 2005 alone the Department of Defense spent $20 million dollars on cell phones! Because the money was in an earmark it was not competitively bid on. Qualcomm, a San Diego company, got the $20 million for their CDMA cell phones. Recently Qualcomm chips were banned from all new US cell phones. Executives at Qualcomm have also donated over $29,000 to Senator Dianne Feinstein's campaign.

Key Vote YES on the Gas Price Act of 2007

On behalf of nearly 850,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I respectfully urge you to VOTE YES on the Gas Petroleum Refiner Improvement and Community Empowerment Act of 2007, or the Gas Price Act, Senator James Inhofe’s (R-OK) amendment to the energy bill currently before the Senate. This amendment would help stem the rise of gas prices by pushing for energy independence through an increase in domestic refinery capacity. This amendment would encourage more domestic oil production by easing the regulatory permitting process for the expansion of present refineries as well as the construction of new facilities. In addition, it would spur broader capacity and efficiency by reducing environmental permit hurdles and encouraging construction on closed military bases.
