From the Justice who brought you Kelo …

It’s not a right, it’s a relic from the past:

From the NYT:

Concern that a national standing army might pose a threat to the security of the separate states led to the adoption of that amendment, which provides that “a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Today that concern is a relic of the 18th century.

You have no individual right to gun ownership and we’re taking your house to replace it with a property that will improve our tax rolls. Thank you, Justice Stevens, for your contribution.

Open Secrets 7/27/16

Open Secrets is a great tool. Come for the lobbying disclosure reports. Stay to see the DNC selling seats on boards and commissions.

Leaks show DNC asked White House to reward donors with slots on boards and commissions

Is the Plural of Anecdote Preference Cascade?

I spent the weekend in Nashville for a college guys weekend. I did not know that it is bachelorette party central. But that’s neither here nor there.

Couple of things I heard of interest.
My uber drivers was a Trump voter. He’s always voted Democratic before, including for Obama who he likes very much. on of my friends in involved in Ohio Democratic politics. He is very concerned about Trump. A contacts is a lawyer who works on Muslim immigration issues. So the younger guys who work for him (all Muslims) are all Trump supporters. WTF is that about: “He can’t deport us or stop us from coming, but he can be more fair on the Israel matter.”

So there you go.



Rep. Connolly was on WTOP this morning saying that those responsible for the failures at Metro need to be held accountable. I started my day with a laugh and thought you might get chuckle out of that too.

For those unfamiliar, see NPR

Also, if you are visiting the DC area, do not use Metro. It is not safe. It will never be safe.

Flint 1/21/16

On the Flint disaster:

In sum: The Democratic government of a Democratic city destroys that city’s finances so thoroughly that it must go into state receivership; a Democratic emergency manager signs off on a consensus plan to use a temporary water source; the municipal authorities in that Democratic city responsible for treating and monitoring drinking water fail to do their job; a state agency whose employees work under the tender attention of SEIU Local 517 fails to do its job overseeing the local authorities; Barack Obama’s EPA, having been informed about the issue, keeps mum. Republican scandal.

Auf wiedersehen

Fröhliche Weihnachten.

Ich fahre im morgan nach Deutschland.

Do Nothing Congress? My Ass.
