If this is in any way an accurate description of what happened, the “educators” involved should not be teaching at or wardering administrating the school – or any school: Pop-Tart Pistol?: 7-Year-Old Gets Suspended for Gun-Shaped Pastry 7-Year-Old Joshua was suspended this morning from Park Elementary School in Brooklyn Park. Joshua says he was eating [...]

Well, what can I say? There are only three of these fatuous orgies of self-flattery left to go. The cybersecurity executive order and snide demand that Congress produce a bill to the President’s specifications was foreseen. By me. Told you you so. Told you so. Told you so. I just loved that abuse of the [...]
Privacy Bills in the Colorado Legislature So Far, or, In Which The Washington Bureau Chief Thinks She Should Control the Committee Schedules
by Eileen | 1:43 pm, February 11, 2013
I thought I’d take a look at the privacy related bills in play in the current legislative session and see where they are. HB 13-1015, Tracy Kraft-Tharp’s bid to turn over data about mental health treatments to a government run database, passed Health, Insurance, and Environment 9-2 and now awaits action by the entire House.

WHAT: SB 13-026, Expanding the class of medical professions required to maintain profiles with the state WHO: Sens. Morgan Carroll (D-29) and Irene Aguilar (D-32) WHY: Because it’s easier than verifying the accuracy of existing data SB 026 proposes an update to a bill passed in 2007 and already expanded once, in 2010. The current [...]
Privacy Bills in the House, a First Look: Tracy Kraft-Tharp Wants Government Access to Mental Health Records Without Patient Consent
by Eileen | 8:25 am, January 21, 2013
WHAT: HB 13-1015, Disclosing Mental Health Claims to the All-Payer Database WHO: Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp (D-29), Sens. Irene Aguilar (D-32) and John Kefalas (D-14) WHY: Because politicians are all cheerleaders gunning for Prom Queen – they measure their self-worth by what they know about other people. No, seriously.

As volatile and flimsy as the BLS numbers are, they cannot disguise an economy that is going nowhere, nor the trouble that Obama is in.

For the most part I enjoy reading Ann Coulter’s columns. True, sometimes she is over the top with her vitriol, but most of the time her targets deserve it. But her column today betrays her. She makes two mistakes immediately – two incorrect assumptions in my view – and comes out with the inevitable wrong conclusion: Romney [...]

A libertarian parody response to the Lena Dunham Obama ad draws blood on Democrats’ misogyny.
by Joshua Sharf | 9:00 am, October 28, 2012
One of the arguments for Obamacare has been the claim that increased access to primary care will result in long-term cost savings, but studies show conflicting results. The theory in favor of this is that early detection will allow treatment in earlier stages. The theory opposed to it is that keeping people alive costs money, [...]

There’s no way this guy was a libertarian, despite some people who suggested he was. He was a statist through and through. Anyone who served as a “fellow” at the Institute for Policy Studies knows its agenda: destroy the capitalist system and replace it with a totalitarian one. But he was right on the Vietnam War.keep looking »
