Tech at Night: The Supreme Court lets the government side against Aereo innovation
So the Aereo case went to the Supreme Court, and it’s official: Aereo lost, and may be killed as the result of government. Naturally I agree with the three justice minority of Antonin Scalia, Sam Alito, and Clarence Thomas. Clarence Thomas is the kind of guy that, if he rules against what I thought was right, I’ll doublecheck to see if I was wrong. And he voted with Scalia.
Turns out there’s some real gold in the dissent, too. Justice Scalia could write Tech at Night.

Nobody Expected The Iraq Disintegration. Its Chief Weapon Was Surprise!
Revealing Politics released a new video today that highlights in the starkest possible way the failure of the President’s policies, aims, objectives, and understanding with regard the Middle East and to America’s military needs and national interests overall. The video (and its subjects) speaks for itself. Devastating. .
John Kerry ignored by everyone as Iraq dissolves
Three things have happened in the past weeks that are making it obvious that the nation that has been Iraq since 1919 will soon cease to exist. First, the Turks have spoken in an approving way of the idea of an independent Kurdistan inside of what is now Iraq and has moved to address the issues that have fueled a long running Kurdish insurgency in | Read More »

An Almost High School Dropout
As a parent, when I think of school choice, I naturally think of how it applies to my children. Recently, however, I came across the news that the South Carolina Senate Education Committee passed a bill allowing students to attend public school in another district if they desire. Immediately I was taken back to my own public school experience and the fact that having a choice | Read More »
Employees Behind Failed Cover Oregon Website Getting Nice Bonuses
My fellow Contributor Moe Lane has spent a lot of time covering the absolute fiasco that is Oregon’s Obamacare Exchange. Here’s one more story for the long list of problems: in yet another case of “so tone deaf it has to involve government”, the employees responsible for the Cover Oregon website, unarguably the worst among all state exchanges and so bad that the state has | Read More »
Abolish the IRS
The IRS has lost the trust of the American people. Targeting conservative groups was unacceptable. Pleading the fifth, misleading lawmakers, covering up wrongdoing, throwing away hard drives, and “losing” sensitive emails is even more egregious. Not only did the IRS abuse their power; they spent years lying about it. So Congress has been forced to investigate, and they could have gotten answers for the American | Read More »

Bureau of Economic Analysis Releases Astounding Downward GDP Revision
The BEA has concluded that the U.S. Economy shrunk by almost 3% in the first quarter of 2014 ,which is very bad. This rate of contraction is the worst seen since the first quarter of 2009, which was a very bad economic quarter by any indication. The suggestion that the Obama Administration has achieved even moderate stabilization of the economy is on increasingly thin ice. | Read More »
An Intellectually Honest Media Would Ask This Question
Ignore, for a minute, the IRS targeting of conservative groups and the erasure of seven hard drives at the IRS. Yes, ignore all that for a moment. While the media is doing its best to avoid that subject, with difficulty, it is absolutely and willfully ignoring another IRS scandal that, had it happened in the Bush Administration, would be the lead story of every nightly | Read More »
The Marionettes Remain Uncut
“At some point there will be more people with knives out to cut the strings than there will be puppeteers with checkbooks.” Having been an elected Republican and someone who routinely takes the position of supporting conservatives in primaries and Republicans in general elections, the Mississippi race does crystalize for me the desires of many to start a third party. In essence, tea party activists | Read More »
Looking in Depth at the Kaiser Obamacare Poll
For those of you not aware, the Kaiser Family Foundation released a poll recently on how people who bought insurance under Obamacare are faring. Unsurprisingly, much of the media has portrayed it as showing a generally positive response to the healthcare law. In particular, they emphasized that about 6 in 10 of the enrollees were previously uninsured. This is all, per the poll, true, but | Read More »
Obamacare Causes 2,130 More Insurance Cancellations in Colorado
Today’s bad news for Obamacare comes from Colorado. Thanks to the state GOP’s Tumblr (yes that platform has a real use), we now know that the ACA has caused the cancellation of 2,130 more insurance policies in the state. They note: Colorado’s Department of Insurance (DOI) announced today in a letter to Colorado Senate Republicans that 2,320 more insurance policies in Colorado will be canceled due to | Read More »
