Tax Bikes

That’s right, some of Georgia’s supermajority of self-professed small-government, freedom-loving Republicans are actually proposing a scheme to register and tax any  and all bicycles that might be used on the same roads with motor vehicles.

Under virtual one-party rule, it really doesn’t matter who’s in charge or even what economic system is in practice; the net result will always range from mediocrity and incompetence to corruption and abuse.

We the “People”

I don’t know which is worse, admitting I was tipped off by Tim Graham at Newsbusters, or actually following the link to the “People” magazine site. Be that as it may, it would appear that Americans really are more concerned with why Huma stayed than with any of the issues that New York City’s next mayor will need to contend with.

I have my own hypothesis. I may not know the particular arrangements the Weiner household has with that Clinton donor-owned Park Avenue apartment (they say they’re paying “market rate;” sure they are), but I kind of doubt that you or I would get the same deal. Perhaps Huma stayed because she knows, if she wants to move out but still work in the city, the rent is too damn high.
