The latest threats to Proposition 13 in Sacramento
Post Date: 2023-03-03 02:24:01 by Charles_Byrd
Nineteenth century lawyer and newspaper publisher, Gideon J. Tucker, once said that no mans life, liberty or property are safe while the Legislature is in session. Well, the California Legislature is back in session and no truer words have ever been spoken. And, while were still waiting on a thousand or so more bills to appear in print, there are already several major concerns to taxpayers, and even a few direct threats to Proposition 13. Here are just two: ACA 1 and ACA 3. Click for Full Text!
SCOTUS Questions the Government's Absurdly Broad Definition of 'Aggravated Identity Theft'
Post Date: 2023-03-03 02:10:21 by Charles_Byrd
Back in 2004, Congress decided to tackle the problem of "identity theft." It was responding to much-publicized cases in which criminals obtained credit cards in other people's names, sticking them with the resulting bills and hurting their credit ratings. But instead of focusing on that paradigmatic situation and crimes of a similar nature, Congress passed the Identity Theft Penalty Enhancement Act, which prescribed a two-year mandatory minimum sentence for "aggravated identity theft." The law's definition of that crime is so broad that it can be read to cover myriad minor offenses that are nothing like identity theft as it is generally understood. Naturally, ...

Biden Admin Using CHIPS Act to Force Taxpayers to Fund Daycare for Tech Workers
Post Date: 2023-03-03 01:48:41 by Charles_Byrd
The Biden administration is using the recently enacted CHIPS Act to force Americans to subsidize childcare for people employed in the manufacturing of semiconductors. Rather than seeking for some sort of spending bill to work its way through Congress as is required by the U.S. Constitution the Biden Commerce Department is using the money being offered to the semiconductor industry to surreptitiously spend taxpayer funds to set up childcare facilities at all the factories receiving money from this latest act of the executive.

Occupational Licensing: Giving Government Power Over Prosperity
Post Date: 2023-03-01 18:05:31 by Charles_Byrd
The state Legislature of Virginia is poised to approve a bill that would grant comity to occupational licenses issued by other states. This event might not sound particularly newsworthy, but anything that takes prosperity out of the hands of the government and places it back in the hands of the people is good news for liberty and those who cherish it.

The letter was dated on the day the driver smashed into Newby's home. City officials said the building inspector was notified about the accident by the fire department and that it is city policy to send such letters after a house is damaged. Click for Full Text!
The Department of Homeland Security Turns 20. Its Legacy Is Disastrous.
Post Date: 2023-03-01 17:53:50 by Charles_Byrd
To those who don't remember the events of September 11, 2001, it can be difficult to convey the sense of dread and uncertainty that followed. As horrible as the attacks were, many of us wondered: What's next? It was in this context that Congress quickly passed, and President George W. Bush signed, such legislation as the USA PATRIOT Act, less than two months after 9/11. While that law was drafted with the best of intentions strengthening the nation's defenses against potential future attacksin practice, authorities overwhelmingly use it to circumvent Americans' basic freedoms like privacy and due process.

Supreme Court Considers Domestic Spying Too Secret to Be Challenged

Lightfoot’s Reign of Ineptitude in Chicago Will Come to an End
Post Date: 2023-03-01 16:52:53 by Charles_Byrd
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot finished a distant third in the citys mayoral election on Tuesday. The night was won by former Chicago Public Schools CEO Paul Vallas, who garnered just under 34 percent of the vote.

Lightfoot, the first black woman and openly gay mayor in the citys history, could only manage to secure about 17 percent of the vote, despite being an incumbent.

U.S. Drops in Human Freedom Index; Ranks Behind Ex-communist Nations
Post Date: 2023-02-28 19:24:42 by Charles_Byrd
In the 1992 book The End of History and the Last Man, philosopher Francis Fukuyama posited that liberal democracy would become the worlds unassailable, default norm. Since then, many would argue, weve gotten much liberalism and the appearance of democracy, but the substance doesnt match the style. And a recent study of liberty in the world vindicates that claim. In fact, finds the Cato Institutes latest edition of the Human Freedom Index, after reaching a high point in 2007 (just before the Obama years, do note), worldwide freedom had been in steady decline. But that has changed: It entered steep decline with the Covid-19 situation in 2020. Click for ...
Virginia Next for Occupational Licensing Reform
Post Date: 2023-02-28 19:22:55 by Charles_Byrd
The General Assembly of Virginia this month approved a proposal to recognize out-of-state occupational licenses and work experience as per se qualifications for in-state credentials. To qualify, the applicant must have held her out-of-state license for at least three years and reside in good standing with that state's board. Individuals seeking a Virginia license for a profession that was not licensed in their previous state can qualify with three years of work experience and an examination. Both provisions will, in many cases, allow workers to avoid excessive time and money costs associated with seeking a license in a new state. Click for Full Text!
Copyright Is the Latest Battle in the War Over A.I.

Increasingly sophisticated artificial intelligence (A.I.) is inching further into the mainstream, and nobody is quite sure what to make of it yet. Students protested after university administrators used the A.I. text generator ChatGPT to craft a statement after a mass shooting. Systems like Midjourney can create pieces of art so sophisticated, they can win awards to the chagrin of flesh-and-blood artists. Now the U.S. Copyright Office (USCO) has weighed in on the debate and determined that images produced by A.I. are not copyrightable. Click for Full Text!
