Coffee Bowl Browsing

Much like they pushed a mythical consensus on global-warming science, the media are now pushing the notion that there is an academic consensus on the constitutionality of the individual mandates in ObamaCare.   There is no such consensus.  And there are plenty of top-notch law professors available to argue publicly that ObamaCare is unconstitutional. . .despite the media's unwillingness to interview them on the subject.

This is a great time for the FCC to die. . .especially with B.O. rubbing his censorious hands and MAWAHAHAHA'ing over the nefarious possibilities available to him by putting control of the internet into the hands of his political appointees.

Extremist threats of violence, or patriotic dissent?  Well, depends on who's sleeping in the White House.

The lawyers for clerical abuse victims know perfectly well that the Holy Father, as a head of state, enjoys immunity from prosecution in the U.S.  So, why are they trying to bag BXVI as a defendant?  They know that if they try, the Vatican will have to point his His Holiness' immunity, thus making it look as though the Pope has something to hide.

Wouldn't a traffic light be more efficient and less likely to cause blisters?

When vegetable condiments go wild!  Remind me not to visit my dad's garden this summer. . .

  1. While I'm concerned about abuse of the powers of the FCC, despite what Suderman says, it does perform some useful functions, especially in regulation of radio transmissions. The radio spectrum is a scarce public resource, and without governmental oversight it would become close to useless. Even most libertarians agree that this is a proper role of government.

    For example, despite the growth of Internet media, AM/FM radio broadcast is still a useful source of entertainment and information which can be accessed with an inexpensive device. The FCC allocates licenses to broadcast stations which govern their transmitter frequency, location, power, and antenna radiation pattern in such a way that there is minimal interference between transmitters. Without such control, anyone with enough money could put up a powerful transmitter that blow away other stations that compete either commercially or have a competing point of view.

    It is certainly possible that this regulation of radio station licenses has and will be abused, but someone has to do it.
