Like everyone else, I’m a little slow getting back into the post-Thanksgiving swing of things, so here’s a collection of links:
- Good to see Harry Reid spending all his time
focusing on the economytrying to force right to work states to unionize policemen and firefighters. Because those of us in red states suffer so terribly from a lack of strikes…
- Son of Kyoto is effectively dead, mainly because there’s no way in hell the Senate will approve the U.S. doling out tens of billions of dollars in subsidies for the likes of Iran, Cuba, and North Korea.
- One contributing factor may be than many view the media as hopelessly biased on environmental issues.
- Contrary to popular belief that Arizona’s immigration law would alienate Hispanic voters from the Republican Party, Republicans candidates actually did better among Hispanic voters in 2010, garnering 38% of the vote compared to 29% in 2008 and 30% in 2006. “Many Hispanics indeed voted for the very Republican candidates most identified as having a pro-enforcement or anti-amnesty stance. And these Republicans generally did as well as, or better than, the Republicans running for the same positions in the previous election.”
- I knew about Fredric Wertham’s campaign against “immoral” comic books in the 1950s, but until I read this George Will piece about the current moral panic over video games, I never knew he was a left-winger who named a clinic after Karl Marx’s son-in-law and testified on behalf of Ethel Rosenberg.
- Charles Murray on the new elite. Not sure if I linked to it before, but Murray is always worth a second read.
