What have we learned today, Squidward?

1.  25% of this country has filed suit against the bright, shiny new Patient Protection and Affordable Healthcare Act.

2.  ACORN has given up its voter registration fraud business, but has retained the funds and may pop up later under another name.  They are still in the housing business.

3.  Back when he was Chicago schools chief, the now Secretary of Education Arne Duncan gamed the school placement system to favor powerful political allies.  Nice.

4.  Tocqueville had our future pegged a long time ago.  Rather than falling prey to a jackboot-in-the-face, we are enfolded by a state power that is minute, regular, provident and mild.  Read the whole article, it’s worth it.

5.  Professor Reynolds should apologize to prostitutes.   Extra nice.

6.  Under 13 U.S.C. § 221, you can be fined $100 for refusing to answer any of the census questions.  $500 for providing false information.  If the idea of harrassing census takers entertains you, it may be worth the price . . .
