San Francisco: Paris Before French Revolution?

quoting Bill Whalen, Carson Brunovia SFgate
Wednesday, May 20, 2015

“I think your city looks like pre-revolutionary France,” Hoover Institution research fellow Bill Whalen told me. Whalen wasn’t talking about street people tearing down Ess Eff edifices. He was talking about housing during a conference call to roll out Hoover’s Golden State Poll on housing in California. The crux of the poll: The California Dream has taken a big hit.

Thursday, May 21, 2015

Here’s something a little outside the normal Lawfare fare but which Lawfare readers might find interesting: A new paper we have written about all the privacy benefits we receive from technologies we typically think of as privacy eroding. When confronted with technologies that give us new privacy with one hand and erode privacy with the other, we tend to pocket the gains without thinking about them while worrying endlessly about the erosions.

According to the Hoover Institution, more than 2.6 million part-time employees are at risk for losing hours and wages. This is especially true in service sector industries with low profit-margins, and the restaurant industry in particular. The employer mandate kicks in for businesses with 50 or more employees, putting many restaurants right around that threshold.

Give Michelle Obama A Break

by Harvey C. Mansfieldvia The Wall Street Journal
Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Conservatives have been giving first lady Michelle Obama a hard time over her commencement speech at Tuskegee University on May 9. They denounce her complaints of continuing racism in America while recalling outrages long past. They wonder why she said nothing of the problem of black criminality.

Charles Murray: Rebuilding Liberty

with David Davenportvia Commonwealth Club
Monday, May 18, 2015

Is American freedom being gutted? Acclaimed social scientist and bestselling author Charles Murray says we can no longer hope to roll back the power of the federal government through the normal political process. By his count, the Constitution is broken in ways that cannot be fixed even by a sympathetic Supreme Court, our legal system is increasingly lawless and unmoored from traditional ideas of “the rule of law,” and the legislative process has become systemically corrupt no matter which party is in control.
