"U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft wants to scrap an 18th-century law that allows victims of human-rights violations to seek compensatory relief."

"In early May, Ashcroft’s Justice Department asked a federal appeals court to take another look at the Alien Tort Claims Act, a 214-year-old law that allows noncitizens the right to sue in U.S. courts for atrocities committed overseas.
Ashcroft was out to help Unocal, which was sued in 1996 by Burmese villagers, alleging that the oil company should share blame for the rape, murder and acts of forced labor committed by Burmese soldiers providing security for its Yadana Pipeline project."

If you prohibit CHLs from carrying a handgun while on your business premises, you will be rendering useless a lawful act on the part of such persons. Additionally, you will render them unable to protect themselves when the legislature has provided a means for their own self protection."

"Imagine the following scenario: A consumer product is equipped with a miniscule electronic device to help the manufacturer track the article from production to delivery at the retailers, who continue to make use of the tracking device to monitor sales, theft and inventory. So far, perfectly harmless."

"But let’s suppose the retailer fails to disable or remove this device at the checkout counter, and the article and buyer continue to be tracked. This could be quite useful for supplier and retailer in collecting valuable marketing data and targeting marketing campaigns—especially if the article being tracked is an item of clothing."

"However, it also raises the issue of privacy, especially if the wearer is being tracked unwittingly. Furthermore, in the wrong hands, such a device could be used for malicious and nefarious purposes."

Income Taxes - Do the rich really pay their fair share?

"One of the most ignorant things that I've heard is that the rich don't pay their fair share of income taxes. I guess it's proof that if you say something enough times - like global warming, Florida voters being disenfranchised, or that America is a democracy instead of a republic - then people will eventually believe it. The truth of the matter is that those evil, wealthy people who rely more on themselves than the government, who take risks and start businesses that employ millions of Americans, who have the audacity to buy big houses and drive nice cars and keep the economy going, don't pay their fair share. They pay a lot more than their fair share!"
