Predictably liberal

Cal Poly's College of Liberal Arts and a group called Citizens Congress 2014 led by San Luis Obispo farmer and former actor William Ostrander held a symposium earlier this evening on "Money In Politics: What Could Go Wrong." While I could only stay for about 75 minutes due to my second and third jobs (the […]

Good Cause Requirements for Speaking in Public

Should any reason for wanting to speak be good enough? Can the government require a person to give reasons before speaking in public? If so, what reasons must it accept? The answers to these questions remain somewhat unclear, but their importance is difficult to overstate.  Licensing requirements for public speaking — especially to large numbers […]

4 lawless justices

Today the Supreme Court released a very brief per curiam opinion that got lost in all the brouhaha surrounding the Arizona Immigration case, which I’ll have some things to day about later. The case is American Tradition Partnership v. Bullock. The case involved some lawless Montana Supreme Court judges who determined that the Citizens United […]

UK Gov, DOJ targeting skeptic blogs

They told me if I voted for John McCain, the government would crack down on free speech and dissent, and they were right!

Google again fails to uphold motto

UPDATE & BUMPED Google’s motto is famously “Don’t Be Evil”—they’re failing miserably. For the record, I chastised Google—civilly—in a response to this thread, which was promptly flushed down the memory hole.  Nitecruzr—whoever he is—has all the makings of a little thug. UPDATE I've apparently paid for my intervention on Althouse's part. Patterico is reporting that […]

Every Democrat has a little fascist in them

I can’t make this stuff up. If Bill Clinton had his way, there would be an Internet agency created by the U.S. government or United Nations to debunk malicious rumors that originate and spread online. "I think it would be a legitimate thing to do," Clinton told CNBC in an interview that aired Friday. He […]

Sharia-compliant Dearborn

Let me preface this by stating a few facts. Terry Jones is a jackass of little note who shouldn’t have a gun. If the media behaved responsibly rather than ginning up controversy, no one would’ve heard of the guy. The media is using Jones to once again portray Christians as instigators and Muslims as victims. […]

Free Speech rights of students

Longtime readers may recall the case of Poway High School student Taylor Harper’s T-shirt protesting the “Day of Silence” pro-gay rights event approved by the school. After years of litigation, the Supreme Court finally got the case, decided it was moot (Harper had graduated), but still vacated the 9th Circuit’s decision upholding the district’s decision […]

Empty gestures

We’ve truly come together as a nation in the wake of last weekend’s tragic shooting that left 6 dead and Rep. Gabrielle Giffords  and others wounded with some bipartisan stupidity on the part of lawmakers. Let’s remember that Jared Loughner, the accused shooter, is a nut. He is not an angry, enraged partisan. He is […]

Honoring a bigot

The Society for Professional Journalists is considering whether or not to remove notorious anti-Semite Helen Thomas’ name from the organization’s Lifetime Achievement Award at its executive committee meeting this weekend. The SPJ’s magazine, Quill, has published pro and con letters on the subject and I wanted to draw attention to Lloyd Weston’s defense of keeping […]

Taped The Argument earlier today, fumbled through some closing remarks; this from @michaelbd is the more eloquent version of what I tried to say:

For some amount of time today, the CA DOJ's new data website leaked name and addresses of people with CCW permits.

Someone PM'd me with video evidence of it (can't share to protect confidential info).

Here is a reddit thread with discussion. https://www.reddit.com/r/CAguns/comments/vm723i/attorney_general_bonta_releases_new_firearms_data?sort=confidence
