I thought that this was an interesting insight into the world of federalism in the U.S. So far, 37 state attorneys general have signed a letter urging the U.S. Senate to support a bill that would shield the media from having to report their sources.Of course, the President of the U.S. thinks it is...
Of all the stories I noticed over the weekend, the Opinion from the Supreme Court of Kansas, (In the Matter of L.M.), struck me as one of the most important decisions to come out of the courts in 2008.It isn't often that you see a state supreme court declare that they don't have to follow U.S....
I'm not sure why everyone is getting so worked up about this statement. Of course it is incredibly stupid, but read in context it isn't all that controversial. Charlie Black is essentially saying that McCain has more knowledge about security issues and any event that allows McCain to show off that...
If you ever wondered who to hire if you need a defense attorney, this may make the decision pretty easy. When the Chief Judge of the Ninth Circuit has decided to hire this guy you probably should as well.Congratulations Mark C. Holscher, you are likely to become the lawyer of the year.From How...
The DOJ hired layers based on their conservative credentials.Is anyone really surprised by these findings? We all know that this type of bis exists. That is why I omit my Federalist Society credentials when applying for a position with a firm or judge that is "liberal" and omit my American...
These videos are certainly not safe for work. Seriously. Don't look at them unless you are prepared to see what can only be classified as pornography. Mostly I get the impression that people want to see them for voyeristic reasons, but there are enough people out there that just want to see for...
Looking for the most unappetising thing on the planet in order to punish your children for not finishing their meals? Well, here you have it. Government tested and prisoner approved; nutri-loaf. This is the food they give to punsh prisoners for not behaving.I found this story on Slate about...
Ok, not really. What we got was a sick man who was committed to a phychiatric unit when he made threats against the president. I'm sure that crazy people rarely threaten to kill famous people.Way to go.From Raw Story:A mentally ill homeless man will serve 57 months in federal prison for threats he...
Who would have thunk it? There maybe actual medical uses for marijuana although our government would probably prefer that you never hear about it.This is a freakishly sad commentary on politics in the U.S. We would rather punish people for recreational drug-use than try and help people dying of...
It used to be that we woul say you were "hiding your head in the sand" if you just tried to ignore the problems that you are facing. Nw we'll have to use a new term; how about "ignoring your email"?Apparently this is a good way to ignore the U.S. Supreme Court.From the NYTimes:The White House in...
