An Inconvenient Tax: How Carbon Taxes Devastate Economies

When the Federal Government desires less of something, they tax it. This is an effective solution to curbing behavior that the government has deemed unhealthy or undesirable. When the government wanted to reduce smoking, it placed high fees upon cigarettes as a deterrent.

Coalition Urges Republicans to Oppose Carbon Tax

The Obama Administration has given every indication that it will reignite the debate over the economically damaging carbon tax. This comes as no surprise. What should come as a surprise, however, is the willingness of some Republicans to be supportive of such a draconian tax. The conservative base must stand and let their voices be heard: No Carbon Tax.

Unshackling Cellphones: Freeing Digital Consumers from Government Regulation

Everyone should have the right to unlock their legally owned phones in the Digital–Age yet  government policy once again is unnecessarily limiting consumer choice. In 1998, Congress passed the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), which outlawed the sale or creation of software for circumventing anti-piracy locks on digital devices, even if they comply with copyright law.

Oregon Land Use Law - 40 Years Of Failed Planning

On May 29, 1973, popular and iconic Republican Governor Tom McCall, famous for his environmental advocacy and anti-development rhetoric (“I urge them to come and come many, many times to enjoy the beauty of Oregon. But I also ask them, for heaven’s sake, don’t move here to live.”), signed into law Oregon's transformational land use legislation that made virtually every land use decision subject to review by state agencies.

Bureaucrat Destroys Wetlands in Order to Save Them

Joe Remenar found the ideal spot to retire. After a long career in law enforcement, he bought three and a half acres near Blaine, Wash., which included a nice home and a little room to enjoy nature.Just a few miles from picturesque Semiahmoo Bay and even closer to the Canadian border, the Pacific Northwest property seemed the perfect fit. "The family really fell in love with the place, as I did,” Remenar said.

NY Soda Ban Gets The Shaft...Errrr...Straw

Months ago, New York's Mayor Bloomberg put into action a Very Serious Plan designed to subvert New York City's life-draining, obesity-encouraging, self-immolating commitment to drinking soda out of containers designed to hold more than 16 ounces of liquid. As of yesterday, the city had its health department trained and ready to perform surprise sting operations on unsuspecting food service establishments across Manhattan as they began their nanny-state crackdown on New York's most pressing danger: dastardly sugary beverages.

Mass Transit Is Not Green Transportation

Here in Portland, Oregon, we've been something of a test lab for mass transit. Our city council, long ago (starting under then Mayor Neil Goldschmidt), threw itself wide open to federal planning experts who wished to use Portland as the template for solutions to the energy crisis of the 70s. That crisis, of course, morphed into the global warming crisis, but the goals were the same - to convince ordinary Americans that their future, and the future of all mankind, came via a trip by bus or train, not in their own car.
