Classiness To The Max From Around The Blogosphere.
In a post called "THE TRIUMPH OF THE EMPTY SUITS,"
Explains that Democrats need to think about nominating a candidate with some qualifications, for a change:
"I don't hate Hillary Clinton. But I do find her emblematic of a rather odd phenomenon going on in politics these days, especially among the Democrats....
Although, with regards to Hillary Clinton, how do we know it's not the opposite, that she is the reason for her husband's success? Republican underestimation of Hillary Clinton is not something WILLisms.com wants to be responsible for.
In a post called "Congressional Blogging: A Guide,"
Notes the emergence of blogging amongst elected officials, and offers answers to blog-skeptics, as well as a guide for blogging, answering the following questions:
"What if the Blog is Off-Message?
In a decade or so, the public will expect that every candidate and public official maintain a blog.
In a post titled, "THE CONSEQUENCES OF EMINENT DOMAIN ABUSE,"
Makes the case that eminent domain expansion has broader consequences:
"There are not that many people who in their lifetimes will be in the position occupied by the homeowners in Kelo, though to be sure, it is vital to prevent eminent domain abuse when it comes to real property. But millions of Americans will have their lives directly and negatively impacted by the placement of additional barriers obstructing pharmaceutical research, development and distribution. Those millions of Americans cannot read stories discussing and advocating the taking of a patent for pharmaceutical products and be sanguine about it. And the policy chickens that come home to roost if such takings occur will leave no one in a happy frame of mind."
Property rights are a fundamental building block of a free society, and while eminent domain makes sense sometimes (especially, say, national security reasons, or for ambitious public works projects), but unlimited eminent domain should trouble Americans deeply.
