Wisconsin

I suspect many NZers would be completely unaware of what’s going on in Wisconsin. I must confess that I’ve only picked up the second half of the story, so was interested to read this article this morning. For in the end, the images and messages tell the story. The showdown in Madison pits pampered public… Continue reading Wisconsin

The Commerce Clause

Interesting analysis by Aaron Worthing on Patterico: So it has to be commerce, and it has to be “among” the states, i.e. interstate.  And that is even more restrictive than it sounds to our modern ears.  For instance in Jacob’s New Law Dictionary, published in 1783, the term commerce was limited to the moving of goods—which doesn’t… Continue reading The Commerce Clause

It made me physically ill to watch corporate reporters abuse the title of “news” in order to prostitute the dead for… Continue reading “The Blame Game”
