Not So Fast: Stock Market Fall Will End 'California Comeback'--Laffer

Arthur Laffer made his name as the USC professor who helped give credibility to the Reagan Administration’s supply-side economics, based on the idea that higher tax rates inadvertently result in lower taxes collected. But California Governor Jerry Brown’s recent State of the State address claimed raising taxes to the highest level of any state in the nation has led to what Brown calls the “California Comeback.” Laffer has taken to the opinion page of the Orange County Register week to defend supply-side principles and call Brown lucky that a hot stock market and mega-IPOs temporarily postponed California’s road to financial ruin. 22 Oct 2014, 4:43 AM PDT

L.A. City Council Advances GMO Ban, Despite 2012 Vote on Prop 37

Radical environmental activists convinced the Los Angeles city council Tuesday to draft an ordinance banning the production or sale of genetically modified organisms (GMO) within the city limits, less than two years after the voters of California rejected Proposition 37, which would have forced the labeling of GMO foods. The ban flies in the face of scientific evidence that there is no significant public health or environmental hazard from GMO. 22 Oct 2014, 4:42 AM PDT

Change: Among Students, Republicans Crushing Democrats on Social Media

For eight years, Americans have been told that Democrats have a decisive advantage among young people, and especially on the Internet. That might have been true with the rise and re-election of Barack Obama. But as his presidency falters, and as Republicans invest in technology, the tide is rapidly turning. In fact, among students, Republicans are now far ahead of Democrats on social media, winning on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. 21 Oct 2014

Could Spelling Be Latest Victim of Anti-Vaccination Epidemic?

Though some have speculated that former Beverly Hills 90210 actress Tori Spelling, who has been quarantined in a Los Angeles hospital with severe coughing, might have enterovirus-D68 or even Ebola, the symptoms she has shown--especially coughing fits--are more consistent with whooping cough, or pertussis. That disease has exploded in California in recent months, as the wealthy and well-educated have refused pertussis vaccination. 21 Oct 2014

White House Admits U.S. Border Crisis--to Oppose Ebola Travel Ban

One of the best arguments against a travel ban against the African countries where Ebola has broken out is that it would be ineffective, given the porous U.S. borders. Someone determined to travel to the U.S. would find a way. Surprisingly, that is the argument trotted out by White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes to explain why there is no travel ban. Previously, the White House has touted its efforts toward border security. 21 Oct 2014

Central Valley Farmers Refuse to Give up Fight vs. High-Speed Rail

Frank Oliveira says that he and a group of Central Valley farmers who oppose Gov. Jerry Brown's "bullet train" plan are getting really good at playing whack-a-mole. The co-chair of Citizens for California High-Speed Rail Accountability (CCHSRA) says that with every setback they soldier on. Last Wednesday's news that the California Supreme Court declined their petition to review a major case regarding funding for the construction of the $68 billion bullet train project was met with disappointment, but not surprise. 20 Oct 2014
