The EPA’s New Water Rule Leaves the Economy High and Dry

When the Clean Water Act was first conceived, the EPA could only restrict entrepreneurs when they attempted to pollute bodies of water that were used by their fellow businesses, or what the EPA calls ‘navigable waters.’ However, its original mission is far too modest for modern-day bureaucrats.

There's No Place Like Foam

Washington, DC, being the seat of the U.S. Government, has a higher than average tendency to exert legislative control over its citizens. For some reason, the issue of food storage seems to be a particularly high priority, as evidenced by the city's abhorrent 5 cent tax on plastic grocery bags.

Give Me 64 oz. or Give Me Death!

The New York Court of Appeals ruled the New York City ban on super-sized soft drinks unconstitutional late last week, dealing a small but significant blow to the nanny state. According to the ruling, the city’s Board of Health “exceeded the scope of its regulatory authority” by engaging in law-making and infringing upon the legislative jurisdiction of the City Council of New York.

The Road to Transportation Federalism

The Highway Trust Fund may dry up by September 30th. This raises a question that should have been debated long ago: what role does the federal government have in transportation? Senator Mike Lee and Representative Tom Graves have wisely suggested that the solution is to phase out federal control over transportation.

First the IRS... Now the EPA?

Though government employees can find our emails, they can't find their own.

The Department of Transportation Wants Drivers to Get Lost

Technology is continually frustrating government regulators. The advance of innovation is so rapid, that slow-moving bureaucracies have had to struggle just to keep up. Of course this hasn’t stopped them from trying. After all, what is the alternative? Letting people enjoy the benefits of new goods and services without interfering or meddling in any way? Obviously, they can’t have that.

The Left’s Assault on Food Freedom

The prohibitionists are at it again. With Michael Bloomberg no longer around to impose his values on hapless New Yorkers, I suppose it was inevitable that someone would take up his mantle as Nutritionist-in-Chief. Granted, Michelle Obama has tried her darnedest, waging a relentless war on fat people ever since her husband took office. But when it comes right down to it, First Ladies aren’t allowed to make laws. That power is vested in Congress, so it will ultimately take a congressman—or woman—to ruin fun and flavor for the nation at large.
