Senators from NY stink.

* From Senator Chuck Schumer; 16 seconds of the most sickening display of bravado and scorn.

* Adam Smith is having the last laugh...though he is dead...so that's kind of creepy.
* Robert Higgs tells us that the best alternative to the bailout is to "do nothing".
* The Financial Times of London asks "Has Barack Obama's presidency already failed?" Yes.
* Again with the weird Obama as savior stuff...these people are freaks. By the way don't make fun of the President or you may get in trouble!
* Obama's rhetoric of fear.
* The Genius Milton Friedman on Greed.

* Holy Jack Cafferty, Batman! I believe this may very well be the first time I have ever heard or read anything that Jack Cafferty has said or written that I actually mostly agree with. I do think he takes the Obama "innocence" a little far, but I will not quibble today! Jack Cafferty has actually called out a Democrat! Will wonders never cease?
* Joe Biden gets on his hands and knees in Munich.
* An insightful article on the problem with America's prison system.
* My liberal moment brought to you by Camille Paglia. She is brilliant and though I may disagree with her on a lot of what her latest article is about...her section on the Fairness Doctrine should be posted in the halls of Congress.

"....doing something mainly for the sake of being seen to be doing something – and, of course, enriching politically connected interests in the process."

This is exactly what's going on. The American people are scared and want action, so the gov't decides to take action in the worst way possible. Leave it to the government to screw its people....

" But the bottom line is that government surveillance of the ideological content of talk radio is a shocking first step toward totalitarianism."

Well said. By the way, where's the ACLU or some other "liberty protector" society that should be attacking this legislation with full force?
