The Death of an Energy Giant: Enron (1985-2002)

In September of 2000, Enron was the nation's 7th largest corporation with a market capitalization of nearly $60 billion. Less than 14 months later, its stock was worthless and the business was forced to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection from creditors. Such an astonishing collapse has not only raised eyebrows, but also outraged investors, policymakers and much of the public.

Clinton Administration-era DOJ was Focused on a Liberal Agenda, Not Fighting Terrorism

Trusted with nothing less than the administration of Justice, the United States Attorney General is arguably the second most important officer in the nation's war on terrorism. With the threat of another domestic attack in the consciousness of the public, the importance of the Department of Justice (DoJ), and law enforcement generally, cannot be understated. Effective criminal prosecution and intelligence gathering are essential to protect and defend American citizens.

Erick Gustafson grew up in a different Sarasota than he left seven years ago. Condominiums and vacation homes have replaced trailer parks on Longboat Key. Hotels have risen. Strip malls have been built. Countless tiffs about signage and aesthetics have flared.

Special Interests Have Much to be Thankful For

This week, President Bush signed the airline security act to federalize the nation’s 30,000 airport screeners. The political wake turbulence caused by the inexplicable crash of American Airlines flight 587 made a protracted struggle untenable. As a result, a terrible bill became law that not only adds 30,000 union workers to the federal government’s payroll, but also establishes incomprehensible new regulations to modify and improve on the incomprehensible security regulations already in place.

Bush the following letter regarding potential postal reform:

Letter to Congress on Amendment to H.R. 3150

Dear Member of Congress: The September 11th terrorist attacks exposed glaring deficiencies in our nation’s air security infrastructure. Congress must act to improve our airport security and to assure Americans that the possibility of another aerial terrorist attack is greatly diminished. But protecting the American skies will require a more dedicated, flexible, and technologically proficient workforce, not a new federal bureaucracy.

National IDiocy

Named after a 1970s’ Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) consulting project that started the enterprise, Oracle Corporation has grown into the worldwide leader in database software. Perhaps it is because the company got its start in the surveillance industry that Oracle Chairman Larry Ellison recently launched a campaign for a National Identification (ID) card and a database to track American citizens. In a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed, Ellison argued that such a database may have prevented the September 11th terrorist atrocities, and volunteered to provide the necessary Oracle database software to the government free-of-charge.
