Breyer’s judicial philosophy

Justice Stephen Breyer has a new book coming out. No, you don’t need to read it. I don’t need to read it either. I know exactly what it will say: The constitution means exactly what Breyer wants it to mean – no more, no less. Yesterday’s Washington Post had a short article on Breyer’s new […]

Politics isn’t just for the rich or retired

Former Democrat U.S. Senate candidate from California Mickey Kaus notes that federal law allows candidates to draw a salary from their political campaigns and use that salary to pay their bills. But the regs explicitly allow candidates to pay themselves a salary (as long as it doesn't exceed what they made "as earned income in […]

Politicians at work

At best this is unseemly; at worst, corrupt. Big Government has the rest of the story. So, how’s that “draining the swamp” thing going for you?

On Christine O’Donnell

Christine O’Donnell defeated Mike Castle yesterday in Delaware’s GOP Primary. As I said the day before, I don’t think she’s electable in that blue state. Sen. Jim DeMint might rather have 35 Marco Rubios than 65 Mike Castles – that may make him feel he’s principled, but it’s a Pyrrhic victory. In the latter case, […]

Our stupid Supreme Court Justice

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has been in the news lately. Last week, National Review’s Bench Memos writer Matthew J. Franck reported on an article Breyer wrote for the Journal of Supreme Court History that was riddled with factual errors. The biggest error was that the infamous Dred Scott decision was a 6-3 decision. Any […]

Just like there is no law against recording a city council meeting because they are public servants doing the public’s business. Recording police as they do their duties deserves the same respect and legal protection. Here’s hoping the realization comes to elected officials sooner rather than later.

The Delaware Primary

The number of Hoystory readers who will be voting in tomorrow’s primaries probably approaches zero, but it seems like it’s incumbent upon conservative bloggers to pick a side in the Christine O’Donnell/Mike Castle deathmatch. Vote for Mike Castle. Am I an enthusiastic Castle supporter? Hardly. He’s got a lifetime American Conservative Union rating of 52. […]

She’s making a list…

Insurance premiums are going up. That’s not the way it was supposed to work. Or maybe it would be more accurate to say that’s not the way it was sold. From an Associated Press fact-check of President Obama’s press conference last week: OBAMA: Said he never expected to extend insurance coverage to an additional 31 […]

Sunday books section

I’ve been doing quite a bit of reading lately, so here’s your quick Sunday books section. First, I mentioned Jay Richards’s “Money, Greed and God” last week regarding a quote from Sojourners’ head Jim Wallis. I’ve since finished the book and I strongly encourage people to pick it up. Richards goes through what the Bible […]
