The growing police state.

Congress: In a new academic study, four university professors examined investment results on more than 16,000 stock transactions made by 300 House delegates from 1985 to 2001. The result was clear: They beat the market by an average of 0.55% per month, around 6.6% a year. The professors note a previous study showed members of the U.S. Senate did so well they outperformed hedge funds. In fact, if members of Congress didn't beat the market, they'd be bigger morons than you already think they are. Why? Because insider trading laws don't apply to members of Congress…

Yes, liberals I believe Al Franken is on Judiciary Committee: The controversial PROTECT IP Act unanimously passed the Senate Judiciary Committee today.

In 2010 New York had 19 million people. In 1970 Texas had 11 million people. In 2010 Texas had 25 million people. Don't tell me public policy doesn't account for much of the difference."
