More Diligent Bloggers Than I

First up is Steve Dennis, the guardsman at America’s Watchtower.  He has important information about the EPA, which has quickly shifted from internet regulation to that pesky CO2 regulation:

“The EPA has now announced that they are stepping up the effort and will be clamping down on power plants and oil refineries in an attempt to force these companies to comply with cap and trade legislation that has yet to be implemented.”

Next up is Bella at Can I Just Finish My Waffle.  She has tried to stay on top of the Food Safety Bill, the byzantine path of which is enough to make your head spin:

“I was trying to follow the food safety bill (S510) which was tacked onto the Omnibus bill (HR3082) to get around a constitutional issue – the Omnibus bill that was stopped in the Senate.  It was at this point that I lost track of it.

Take your eyes off the ball for a minute and your can’t even find the ball.  The following is the best I could come up with . . . .  Needless to say, they found a way to pass it.”

Hop on over there to see how the food safety measure finally cleared the Senate.

Last but not least is the Professor at Legal Insurrection, with some Obamacare information I doubt you’ll hear about on Morning Joe, or Nightly News, or whatever old skoolz news you happen to watch:

“This is a textbook example of what I have been warning.  Obamacare simply is the infrastructure.  The details and the demons will be worked out in regulations.

The fact that such a controversial change was kept quiet for so long, and that the Obama administration took steps to keep it quiet, is most troublesome of all.”

Click on over to see about which “controversial change” the Professor is speaking.

Most transparent government EVAH!

Hungary for Net Neutrality?

This is interesting:  Hungary Approves Controversial Media Law.

Apparently, they have already enacted their own form of Net Neutrality. 

It’s interesting because folks like me are all attuned and up-in-arms about the FCC gettin’ that camel’s nose in the door of internet regulation.

In the meantime, Hungary seems to have no problem whatsoever with the camel’s nose, or neck, or humps, or even it’s ass-end.


We’ll see what comes of this.

In the meantime, I’ll be grateful for being born in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Instead of the land of the subjugated by Turkey, then Austria, then Germany, and then the Soviet Union, and only recently the land of the free, until they hand it away.

Unless we hand it away, too.
