Gun Law

The Supreme Court’s 2007 decision of DC vs Heller recognized that the Second Amendment established a right to bear arms in self-defense. But in the years since, the high court has hardly taken any gun rights cases further fleshing out this precedent, allowing restrictions to stand. In a seismic 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court struck down a New York scheme that heavily restricted citizens’ […]

Tough Times

My grandfather was on a tractor on rented land, my father was able to drive his truck to work, my wife is in a Mercedes, my son and daughter will be able to pick the car they desire, and my grandson is going to be in the car they buy for him, but my great grandson will be back fighting […]

The First Labor Day

Having the first Monday in September off from work was significant for American workers in 1894, when Labor Day was declared a national holiday. Working conditions in the country’s factories, railroads, mills, and mines were grim. Employees, including many children, were often required to work 12 hours a day, six days a week, in crowded, poorly ventilated spaces. Supervision was […]

Bald Is Beautiful

In an article I take special interest, it now appears that calling a man a “bald c***” is sexual harassment, an ­employment ­tribunal has ruled in England.  Tony Finn, 64, claimed he had been a victim of sexual harassment when his manufacturing firm colleague said he was a “bald c***”. The panel sitting at Sheffield agreed and compared it to when […]

The Tyranny of Unaccountable, Rogue Bureaucracy

The case in question is West Virginia v. EPA, which was decided in June regarding the Obama-era Clean Power Plan, a 2015 regulatory scheme devised by the EPA. The plan sought to reinterpret a decades-old statute to discover new authority for the EPA to forcibly transition the energy sector so that new coal power plants could not be built.  This “plan” was not […]

Camp Lejeune

Recently, President Biden signed the PACT Act in order to help people living or working at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina between 1953-1987 who were exposed to contaminated water that has caused death, illness, and life-altering chronic health conditions. There were two main Volatile Organic Compounds initially identified in Camp Lejeune’s water supply, a dry-cleaning solvent, and a […]

Respect

Recently there was disturbing footage of a toddler cursing and swinging at cops while adults in the background hurled curse words and slurs in St. Paul, Minnesota, where crime has soared since the killing of George Floyd in 2020. The footage was recorded last week while police were at a home to serve a search warrant in the hunt for a murder […]

Who Can We Trust To Shut-Down Honest Work?

Over-enforcement has become all too common when it comes to youthful attempts at entrepreneurship.  Take for example an for The Telegraph, where a man named Andre Spicer wrote about the experience of his five-year-old daughter who tried to open a small lemonade stand in the family’s East London neighborhood. After about 30 minutes, four local council enforcement officers stormed up to her […]

Medical Malpractice: Medical Mistakes Happen

In July of 2000, JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) published that physician mistakes were the third leading cause of death in the United States.  Thus the question, over the last 20 years and during the Covid Pandemic did the attention to medical errors make the situation better? Deaths Per Year (From 2000) 12,000 — unnecessary surgery 7,000 — medication errors […]

South Carolina & It’s Certificate of Need Laws

In the same year that South Carolina decided to not remove the Certificate of Need requirement for hospitals/medical providers, they have decided just one hospital will be exempted from that need.  Just one. The regulations themselves will remain on the books and will apply to everyone else. The exemption is buried deep within an appropriations bill that reads, “For the current fiscal […]
