How health reform de-funding will cost you By John F.

Egypt: Mummy’s curse or economic boom? By John F. Wasik Author, The Cul-de-Sac Syndrome Did the Egyptian rebellion open up a gold mine for civil reforms or a mummy’s tomb of economic perils?

The war on flowers

This is a wonderful little video on the war on marijuana flowers:   The war on drugs has made not one iota of difference on the consumption of drugs in America. It has stripped Americans of our liberties, robbed us of our tax dollars, and sent countless young men [...]

Politics should be more like sports

Reihan Salam, responding to this Bruce Bartlett interview over at The Economist’s Democracy in America blog, writes:
