DOJ Gives Up On Attempt To Read Your E-mail
previously we read how the DOJ wanted to label opened e-mail unprotected by basic rights and subject to warrantless reading. Seeing the reaction from the media and blogs, reading the likely result from a trial, they have dropped their attempt - at least this one. picked by 2manyusernames 4 months ago

Health Reform bill may have accidentally stripped Congress of health coverage
Unintended Consequences are the bane of many complex or even simple laws. The new Health Reform bill was no exception and one of the first such consequences may include Congress being stripped of their government health plan. They probably regret not reading the bill now.via HotAir which also has more links and comments picked by 2manyusernames 4 months ago

 The Unbelievers: Ministers Who Decide There Is No God
The Unbelievers: Ministers Who Decide There Is No God
Walk into a church on a Sunday and you might find that a few of the people in the pews are atheists — there because they like the old hymns or the comforting murmur of the liturgy or because their spouses insist. Or because, at some level, they’re still pretending they believe. They are spectators, in other words, not participants. picked by Bornbad 4 months ago

 Should Individual Tax Records Be Public Information?
Should Individual Tax Records Be Public Information?
A recent essay in the New York Times raises the question as to whether individual tax payments should be considered public information. It has been suggested that public disclosure of tax payments would create pressure to correct inequalities and loopholes in the current tax system. Surprisingly, strict secrecy regarding tax records is a relatively modern aspect of the system. picked by bingo 4 months ago

 How Insurance Companies May Get Out Of Reforming
How Insurance Companies May Get Out Of Reforming
You may have thought that the health care reform bill will prevent health insurance companies from engaging in the same end run around regulation practiced by the credit card companies. Far be it from insurance companies to spend the next four years until the implementation of health care reform begins figuring out how to work the system to their advantage at your expense. picked by 2manyusernames 4 months ago
