FreedomWorks to Hold Event to Discuss Eminent Domain Supreme Court Case

FreedomWorks Missouri and Missouri Citizens for Property Rights are hosting a breakfast on Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at 7:30 AM to discuss the issue of Eminent Domain Reform. Ron Calzone, President of Missouri Citizens for Property Rights, will be speaking, and breakfast will be provided. The primary purpose of government is to safeguard the inalienable rights of its citizens, which includes the right to own personal property without fear of being forced to part with it. Instead, the government has taken a “divine” role in the real estate industry.

Who Benefits From Free Trade?

Free trade can be a tough issue sometimes, in large part because free trade -- even that which produces an unambiguous positive overall good -- can cost some individuals jobs and wages in the short term. When this happens rapidly in some sectors, vocal minorities make their opposition known, and they can often produce sizable shifts in public opinion. This is happening right now, as we see that even amongst Republicans, skepticism about trade is growing.

Morning Tax News

Cato's Dan Mitchell points us to this IMF report indicating that, in a few instances, lowering taxes really can result in an increase in government revenues.  Either way, as Mitchell has pointed out previously, there's ample evidence worldwide that a simple, low flat tax can produce huge economic benefits.

Make It Flake

There's still not been an announcement from the Bush administration about whether or not it will, as we all hope, issue an executive order to wipe out the majority of the earmarks in the most recent omnibus.  But the big news in the earmark battel right now is that Jeff Flake, earmark-killer par excellence, has a chance to get on the appropriations committee.

Make It Flake

BY Chuck Muth

There’s a vacancy on the House Appropriations Committee. That’s where all the money is spent and bills are larded up with pork. And the guy who has been most vocally and actively opposed to earmarks and pork-barrel spending, Republican Rep. Jeff Flack of Arizona, is seeking appointment by the GOP leadership to fill that opening.

French to Measure Gross National Happiness

No. Really. Looks like French President Nicholas Sarkozy thinks he can argue away his country's dismal economic reports by measuring the, um, national happiness.  '

The (Virtual) Tax Man Cometh

One of the (many) great advantages of the Internet is that it can deliver digital content -- software, music, movies, etc. -- right now. Thanks to downloading and digital distribution, you don't have to go to a store, don't have to parking and traffic, annoying packaging or unhelpful store clerks -- and you you don't have to pay taxes on what you download. In South Dakota, however, that may be about to change.

The Myth of Alternative Energy

Environmental advocates regularly pontificate about the need to adopt alternative energy sources.  But when you press them, they offer up such non-solutions as wind and solar power which is unlikely to provide for more than a small percentage of our current energy needs.
