HONOLULU, Hawaii (Dec. 16, 2017) – During the 2018 legislative session, the Hawaii Senate will take up a bill that would limit the warrantless use of surveillance drones. The legislation would not only establish important privacy protections at the state level, it would also help thwart the federal surveillance state. Rep. Joseph Souki introduced House Bill…
“Tearing down historic monuments because of supposed principles has led to unnecessary and destructive civil unrest. Interestingly, news accounts show that the two groups leading this purge of American history are hate-filled, Hitleresque white suprema…
“Pat Campbell talks with Shawn Jenkins about SQ 788, the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Bill.”
“Sessions noted that more fatal accidents are now caused by drugs than by alcohol, and he said the American Medical Association ‘is crystal clear’ that ‘marijuana is not a healthy substance.’ But when the intern challenged that assertion, Sessions seemed dismissive, addressing the intern as ‘Dr. Whatever Your Name Is.’ ‘I don’t think America’s going to be a better place if marijuana’s sold in every corner grocery store,’ Sessions said.”
“But only if the person who steals the car is a minor. Having the same unlocked car stolen by an adult would not be a criminal offense. Newton insists his bill wouldn’t punish real victims.”

“While U.S. trade policy under the Trump administration has become a confusing mix of bluster, posturing, threats, and uncertainty, China has gone in the other direction, at least incrementally by lowering some of its tariffs unilaterally. On November 24, China’s Ministry of Finance announced that it would cut tariffs on 187 consumer products. The lower duty rate took effect on December 1, so Chinese consumers are now benefitting from more competition and lower prices. This is the fourth tariff cut since 2015.”
“An American visiting the Communist Bloc in the 1980s would be aghast to find most women still doing laundry the way they had in the United States 50 years prior, without washing machines. The communist system didn’t produce machines to make women’s lives easier for the same reason it neglected their other needs and wants. For all the complaints about the profit motive, markets incentivize people to satisfy each other’s preferences through voluntary exchange, while state-run economies provide no such incentive.
