Montanans Must Seek Independence from CSKT Water Compact- Jul 2, 2015
July 4th celebrations are a time for recalling the birth and exceptionalism of our great nation. The United States of America has remained a unique global experiment in which Enlightenment-era principles (political, social, economic, scientific, philosophical and legal) have been deployed to successfully promote and defend our natural rights-based individualism and freedoms, especially private property. This 4th of July is particularly noteworthy, because it is both the 239th year since the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the 800th year since the signing of the English Magna Carta.
The Magna Carta strongly influenced the drafting of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights. Its significance to Americans lies primarily in its guarantee to “We the People” of certain rights and its binding of an oppressive sovereign (government at all levels) to the rule of law. These documents together memorialize the Founding Fathers’ distrust of concentrated political power and confidence that representative government, the idea of a supreme law and independent judicial review can serve as indispensable counterweights to tyranny.
China’s Carbon Prices Collapse- Jul 2, 2015
Beijing has made a lot of headlines recently for its eco-friendly target setting, and central to many of these plans has been the implementation of regional carbon markets, and eventually the creation of a national system. So far things are not going exactly according to plan. Prices in five of China’s carbon markets have fallen sharply. Permits in the biggest pilot exchange in Guangdong have dropped 73 percent.—The American Interest, 1 July 2015
Basing their decision on “inartful drafting” tags the majority as “inartful dodger- Jul 2, 2015
VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia—A majority of the Supreme Court in King v. Burwell got it wrong. Instead of applying the ObamaCare law as written, the 6-3 majority took a bold step and actually rewrote the law.
A key part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) says the subsidies are available only to Americans who enrolled “through an exchange established by the state”—a clear reason, as we argued in our amicus brief, that the subsidies should not be available to those in states without their own exchanges.
‘Waze’ for the sleep-deprived- Jul 1, 2015

Germany’s Green Energy Transition May Be Running Out Of Money, Study Warns- Jul 1, 2015
Germany’s green energy transition has cost more than 100 billion euros so far. It has hit large and small electricity suppliers with force and put traditional business models in question. But 15 years after the start of the transition, experts are asking themselves an anxious question: is the energy transition running out of money?
Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God- Jun 30, 2015
As we celebrate this 4th of July, take a moment to consider and reflect upon some forgotten founding history incorporated into our Declaration of Independence. Genuine American history, having been replaced and obscured by “Social Studies”, is no longer taught in our schools and has long since been lost to our memory, but fortunately that history is preserved in our archives available to anyone with an interest in searching it out.

The politically correct tornado and the Confederate Flag- Jun 29, 2015
I am sad. Just so sad. Some of the very most special people in the world, my southern redneck friends, are coming under assault for displaying the confederate flag.
Fallacy of Gun Free Zones- Jun 29, 2015
The saddest thing about the tragic slaughter of those God-fearin’ folk holding a prayer meeting in Charleston’s “Mother” Emanuel, AME church, is the talk of how those innocent people “gave up their lives.” Nothing could be further from the truth. They didn’t ‘give up’ anything. Everything good that they were or had was ripped violently out of their bodies by a fusillade of bullets delivered by a twitchy little psychopath named Dylan Roof, who in his despotic act proved there was nothing good in his heart or evil brain.

Obamacare has been upheld one more time- Jun 28, 2015

US Lawmakers Vote To Block Obama’s Climate Policy- Jun 25, 2015
The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to delay the Environmental Protection Agency’s climate rule for power plants and let state governors opt out of complying. The bill, passed 247-180, is a major blow to the main pillar of President Obama’s effort to reduce the greenhouse gases that cause climate change, although the White House has promised a veto to protect his legacy.
Overtime proposal would cost the workers it’s meant to help- Jun 25, 2015
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Critics claim retail is an industry of low-wage, part-time jobs.
That’s not true, of course, and recent research from GfK and Oxford Economics provides the facts to prove that retail offers competitive wages and vast opportunities for career advancement, that the majority of retail workers are happy and that those who have moved on say their retail experience helped get them their jobs.
