Monday Highlights

Good morning.

  1. In favor of auto-expire in legislation.
  2. Mr Sullivan’s case considered, more here. The real issue.
  3. One view of the Mr Wilson address outcry kerfuffle.
  4. Philosophy, well, there you go.
  5. Pretty pretty.
  6. Some conservative links.
  7. A stacked deck.
  8. Notes from the tea party. More here and here. And as seen from the other side of the world.
  9. MMA and the gospel, and a question asked.
  10. Of Bangles and bikes (doing “bike like an Egyptian”).
  11. Moving toward a 1 liter (that is 1 liter/100km) car.
  12. On our economic woes.
  13. Untruth in advertising (although it might be noted that it if you take “stoned” literally instead of a figure for execution, it might be true).
  14. Self as illusion, modern science and religion.

  1. In favor of auto-expire in legislation.

    some good points, ‘auto-expire’ clauses are a source of potential mischief (Bush basically set up his tax hikes so as to ‘blame’ the next President) but they also limit costs. The best of both worlds would be one where proposals are set up with auto-expire clauses in order to limit costs but politicians who enact them do not get to blame shift. Hence if Bush is properly blamed for his own tax hikes, all will be well. He should get only credit for enacting a temporary tax cut.

    This is perhaps a test for the blogosphere’s worth. Since its supposed value is the ability to take a multi-facted topic and delve into all its bits and pieces, they should be able to shred such cheap rhetorical games. Will they? It remains to be seen.
