Here's your 'demonstration project,' Mr. President -- it's called Mississippi | Washington Examiner

Here's your 'demonstration project,' Mr. President -- it's called Mississippi | Washington Examiner: "Since passing tort reform in 2004, Mississippi has seen the number of medical malpractice claims plummet by 91 percent from its peak. The state's largest medical liability insurer dropped its premiums by 42 percent, and has offered an additional 20 percent rebate each year since tort reform went into effect."

Taking a bite out of climate data � Watts Up With That?

Taking a bite out of climate data � Watts Up With That?: "Imagine if there were no reliable records of global surface temperature. Raucous policy debates such as cap-and-trade would have no scientific basis, Al Gore would at this point be little more than a historical footnote, and President Obama would not be spending this U.N. session talking up a (likely unattainable) international climate deal in Copenhagen in December.

Steel yourself for the new reality, because the data needed to verify the gloom-and-doom warming forecasts have disappeared."

The Free Enterprise Nation .: Educate, Unify, and Advocate :. OH, MY!

The Free Enterprise Nation .: Educate, Unify, and Advocate :. OH, MY!: "As researchers for The Free Enterprise Nation began compiling information about the pay and benefits disparity that exists between government/public education and those who work in the private sector, we'd hear an occasional 'OH, MY GOSH!' or 'OH, MY!' as they found another reference to shocking pay and benefits practices in the public sector. It might have been the first time they saw a State of California pensioner retiring at $500,000 a year...or perhaps the Illinois driver's training teacher earning $170,000 a year and retiring at $130,000 a year...or perhaps the New York City workers who amass more than $100,000 in overtime in their last year before retirement, triggering a pension benefit in excess of their salary."
