The Dangers of Government Paternalism

Thanks to big government nannies, it's become commonplace for bureaucrats to pick winners and losers by taxing or regulating businesses out of existence.  They identify the product -- sodium, soda, trans fats, foie gras, tobacco, even food trucks -- they deem not good for you or the community and then develop tax codes or regulations to hurt the industry or attempt to curb people's consumption.  In addition to the issue of government interference in the free market is the government's poor record on these matters.

Pigford and Political Correctness

Earlier today on Big Hollywood I wrote about actor Robert Davi and Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's recent tweets about the damage political correctness does.  Davi pointed me to the writings of Philip Atkinson.  Regarding the Pigford cases, I thought this passage was relevant: May 1, 2013 2:42 PM PT

Anti-Fox News Site Smears Robert Davi Sans Facts

Actor/singer Robert Davi is under attack from an anti-Fox News web site, but not for anything he said directly. The site simply puts hateful words into Davi's mouth in an effort to distract from his argument against political correctness. May 1, 2013 9:07 AM PT

Could This End the Media's Love Affair with Psy?

Last Friday evening CBS announced that Psy, the anti-American Korean one-hit wonder ("Gangham Style"), would be their guest at the White House Correspondents Dinner.  Even though Psy apologized for a song where he said that American troops and families should be killed "slowly and painfully" it's dumb that CBS would even open itself up to criticism.  Oh, wait, they aren't receiving any criticism beyond tweets from conservatives like me who still pay attention to celebrities.  At the very least they should be criticized for bringing a has-been.  You're supposed to bring the celebrities who are hot right now -- like the cast of "Duck Dynasty" -- not the guy who is now doing commercials for pistachios.  Did CBS invite Psy because Tan Mom wasn't available?

Summer Reading List

Ok, it's not summer yet, but there are a lot of great books coming out that I can't wait to read.  I readily admit that I'm lacking in the non-fiction/political department.  There's just something about reading on the beach or by the pool that makes me want to read for fun.  Hopefully, other Conversation contributors can make other suggestions if you're looking for a well-rounded list.
