Patricia Arquette and Women's Rights

Did you watch the Oscars last night? I only caught a few highlights, including Lady Gaga’s excellent tribute to The Sound of Music and Patricia Arquette’s ill-informed diatribe on women’s rights.

First Amendment Rights: License Required

Should one need to obtain a license to speak on public sidewalks about the history and architecture of an area? Or does the First Amendment protect our free speech rights from prior restraints, such as licensing requirements? According to a short opinion in Kagan v. City of New Orleans, which lacked any in depth legal reasoning, the Fifth Circuit ruled a license can be required to give guided tours of New Orleans for pay.

ObamaCare will make filing a tax return an even more frustrating, complex process

Americans already spend some 6 billion hours and $168 billion each year complying with a complex and onerous tax code. But ObamaCare is going to make tax filing even more of a chore for consumers who received subsidies for health plans purchased through the state and federal exchanges.

Oppose the Ex-Im bank

Republican control of Congress has not slowed the influence of the DC insiders’ push for bigger government. Regrettably, Republicans are dancing with Democrats to the lobbying tune of big business special interest groups, calling for a tax increase and the renewal of the corrupt Export-Import Bank.

FL Activists Oppose ObamaCare

Thank you to FreedomWorks for sponsoring the Repeal ObamaCare Event. 15 People from the South Lake 912 Project and the North Lake TEA Party braved the coldest weather in Florida this year 40 degrees and 20 mph winds. We considered it a great success as we had a chance to speak with Lisa Marshall, Deputy Director of Constituent Services for Senator Bill Nelson. While she did not agree with out views, Ms. Marshall told us all of the attributes of the Affordable Care Act we were able to discredit all of them with factual information and without confrontation.

Less Imprisonment Doesn't Lead to More Crime

The United States has one of the highest incarceration rates in the world, as well as the largest prison population anywhere on Earth. With all those people locked away, one would hope that the streets would be pretty safe for the rest of us. Yet in many parts of the country, crime rates remain high, leading some to question whether putting so many people in prison is actually making us any safer.
