BY

According to this investigative story by the New York Sun's Claudia Rosett, outgoing U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan and his brother are hustling subsidized rent (from the "Mitchell-Lama Housing program") courtesy of New York's taxpayers. Rosett writes:

Got Welfare?

BY

The USDA is preparing to release the records of the individual recipients of about $56 billion in farm subsidy payments, the AP is reporting. This should contain some really interesting stuff-- look for patterns that allow individuals to circumvent the $360,000 payment cap, and check for links to Members of Congress, staff, and especially political donors.

Do we really need more cell phone taxes?

BY Matt Kibbe

Ten years ago, when Congress finally passed legislation that pulled down a century's worth of barriers to competition in the telecommunications industry, 38 million Americans used mobile phones. Today there are more than 225 million wireless subscribers in America and mobile phones have become a key element of parental peace of mind and workplace productivity.

Earmarks of Lamed Pork

BY Matt Kibbe

In an NBC News poll taken well before this year's election, Americans said ending earmarks for pork-barrel projects should be Congress' top priority. Earmarks trumped immigration, lobbying reform and every other domestic issue by a wide margin. Perhaps a little too late, that message finally may have reached Capitol Hill.

Kosovo: Eternally dependent?

BY Richard W. Rahn

PRISTINA, Kosovo. -- This small European nonstate tucked between Albania, Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia is a living testament to the inability of the U.N. to solve problems. As some will recall, eight long years ago NATO and the U.N. intervened to stop the war between Serbia and its province of Kosovo, largely inhabited by people of Albanian origin (more than 90 percent currently). Kosovo has been under U.N. jurisdiction since 1999, with NATO troops, including a contingent from the U.S., keeping the peace.

Good Morning Vietnam, But Farewell to Free Trade?

Free trade, which drives economic growth and has been a bedrock American principle since the end of the Second World War, may be coming under attack in the next Congress.  The first sign of trouble came just one week after the most recent elections, when a lame-duck session of the House of Representatives temporarily blocked a measure that would have granted “permanent normal trade relations” to Vietnam in advance of President Bush’s recent trip to Hanoi.

“Rock Star” Obama A Liberal by Record

The hoopla over Barack Hussein Obama as a presidential candidate is almost deafening if you tune on television news. What’s the fuss? Leadership and experience should be the top two qualifications to become U.S. President. There are alot of other categories I could fill in but Obama wouldn’t fit any of them.

State Education Board to lobby for school choice again

BY Molly Walsh

As pitches go, it's a hard sell. But Vermont Education Commissioner Richard Cate will again go to the Legislature when it convenes in January to propose that the state expand school choice -- a proposition that flopped decisively last time around. This time, Cate and the Vermont Education Board are considering a proposal that calls for expansion of public school choice at the high school level only; a broader bill failed to pass in the most recent session. "The board has asked me to take school choice back, and so we will be doing so," Cate said.

Pandering to Ignorance

This op-ed originally appeared in The Washington Times on Dec. 8, 2006. If the price of oranges increases, would you expect the quantity sold to rise or fall? I expect most of you reading that question would answer, "sales would fall," because you were either taught the law of demand or intuitively understand that when prices rise people will spend less (there are a few rare exceptions).
