Why is the broadcast lobby palling around with Communists?
The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) is one of my least-favorite industry lobby groups. They claim to support issues like “Protecting the Rights of Journalists,” opposing “advertising restrictions,” and supporting a “competitive marketplace,” but in practice they’re purely a rent-seeking body, completely integrated with the regulatory-industrial complex. There’s no easier way to see this than looking at NAB’s plans to engage with broadcasters in Cuba. | Read More »
White potatoes finally legal for WIC purchase
In the George Bernard Shaw play Pygmalion, more familiar to most as the Broadway play and Hollywood movie “My Fair Lady,” the protagonist, Henry Higgins takes in an underclass Cockney girl and attempts to change her into a proper British lady.

Remember when they could fool solid groups like Gun Owners of America with their dishonest rhetoric?
I mean, they do still have language up that says “Organizations as diverse as the Christian Coalition for America, Moveon.org, the ACLU and the American Library Association have joined in support of Net Neutrality.” But, what? MoveOn, ACLU, and ALA are ‘diverse?’ Get real. Christian Coalition is the only right-wing fig leaf they have left, and Christian Coalition isn’t exactly known as a small-government group, nor a tech policy leader. Come on. I won, they lost. Net Neutrality was exposed as a single-party, left-wing effort, like so many others of the extremist Obama regulators. Time to… Move On.
