Someone said recently – and I thought it was a strong point – that you can test a person’s “fascist factor” (my words) by bringing up the smoking issue (nazi vs free) with that person and listening to their reaction/opinion.

Once again, John Stossel cuts through the crap. (Bill) Gates spoke at Harvard recently, urging graduating students to take on the “world’s deepest inequities [including] world hunger … the scarcity of clean water … children who die from diseases we can cure”. …He told the grads, “The market did not reward saving the lives of [...]

Someone posed a question somewhere about the burdensome Sarbanes-Oxley: Who (besides government) wanted it and why? He couldn’t believe that accounting firms could make the case strong enough to get this piece of law through the pipeline.

Another anti-violence measure coming from the bureaucrats: Kids at Kilmer Middle School in suburban Washington, D.C., are under a zero-tolerance touching policy. They’re banned from poking, prodding, hugging — even high-fiving. Surely all middle school violence will therefore end immediately. Done deal.
