Iowa lawmakers to reconsider judge-selection process

    One News Now: State Representative Dwayne Alons submitted two bills to change the system. “The first one would be to do more of a selection process like the federal model,” he describes, “where the governor would select a name to fill a vacancy on the appellate court as well as the district courts. And then the Senate would confirm with a super majority — two-third’s vote.” . . . The second bill would establish a term limit for judges, plus a retention vote by the public.

Terry Paulson: Facing Public Union Realities

    Terry Paulson writes at Townhall: In cash strapped CA, higher taxes have just stifled the private sector, motivated corporations to leave the state, and strangled job growth. The economic pain is not shared equally. According to the Employment Development Department, while private-sector workers have lost over a million CA jobs since the recession began, CA government employment has increased 1,200 jobs. CA now has over 489,000 state workers who are paid by a million fewer taxpayers, many of whom have seen their incomes compromised.

Traditional Experts

David French: Are Christians Obsessed With Gays and Abortion?

    ADF attorney David French writes at Patheos: I’m a card-carrying member of the professional religious right. No, that’s an understatement. To simply call me a “member” would profoundly understate my antagonistic role in the culture wars. Fans of comic book movies (and all of you should be) may remember a scene in X2, the sequel to X-Men, when Pyro tells a frightened police officer: “You know all those dangerous mutants you hear about in the news? Well I’m the worst one!” and then proceeds to wreak fiery havoc on an entire neighborhood

3% Say Ivy League Schools Produce Better Workers

    Rasmussen: “In fact, only three percent (3%) say individuals who go to Ivy League schools are better workers than those who go to other schools. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds that 79% do not think Ivy League students make better workers. Eighteen percent (18%) are undecided . . . But only 28% of Americans believe that people who work harder generally make more money than others anyway.”

The Role of Culture in State Failure

    NCPA Policy Digest: “The results suggest that culture is more important than formal institutions in explaining differences in the degree to which states fail, according to Claudio D. Shikida and Ari Francisco de Araujo Jr., of Ibmec Minas Gerais, Brazil, and Pedro H. C. Sant’Anna, of Universidad Carlos III, Madrid.”

11th Circuit Obamacare challenge fast tracked

    SCOTUS Blog: The Eleventh Circuit Court agreed Friday to put the health care case on a fast track, and issued a briefing schedule, but said it would keep open for now the question of whether the appeal will be heard initially by the full Court or by a three-judge panel.  The Court said the briefing schedule it had laid out would not be affected by what it decides for or against en banc review.  The briefing will begin April 4 and will be completed on May 25.  That schedule could still allow for an en banc oral argument on June 6, as the challengers requested.
