Google’s Investment in Politics Starts to Pay Dividends

    Breitbart Big Government: Since donating over $1 million to the president’s campaign and building its online presence and fundraising base, the company has reaped continued returns on their investment, so much so, that Google’s former CEO is rumored to be on the shortlist to be the nation’s new Secretary of Commerce.

    Bloomberg: The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that states don’t have “power to enforce its citizens’ rights in respect to their relations with the federal government,” according to today’s filing. The individual-coverage mandate is a legitimate exercise of Congress’s power to regulate the interstate market in health care, the Justice Department said.

The Internet Tax Mirage: Politicians try to drive online commerce—and revenue—out of state.

    Wall Street Journal (via Google): Governor Pat Quinn recently added to his reputation as America’s most taxing politician by signing a law applying the state’s 6.25% sales tax to Internet purchases made in Illinois. Within hours, Amazon, the online book and merchandise seller, announced it would discontinue using any of its 9,000 Illinois small business affiliates to avoid having to collect the tax. Congratulations, Governor.

The Muslim World’s Coming European Revolution

    Philip Jenkins writes at Real Clear Religion: But here’s the problem. In just the last thirty years or so, those very Middle Eastern countries that used to teem with children and adolescents have gone through a startling demographic transformation. Since the mid-1970s, Algeria’s fertility rate has collapsed from over 7 to 1.75, Tunisia’s from 6 to 2.03, Morocco’s from 6.5 to 2.21, Libya’s from 7.5 to 2.96. Today, Algeria’s rate is roughly equivalent to that of Denmark or Norway; Tunisia’s is comparable to France. Counter-intuitively, that remark about “the closer to Rome” also holds good on the southern, Muslim, side of the Mediterranean. Just what is happening here? Everything depends on the changing attitudes and expectation of the women in these once highly-traditional societies.

How Donor Disclosure Hurts Democracy

    James L. Huffman at the Wall Street Journal (via Google): In the debates about campaign-finance regulation and the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision of last year, there seems to be widespread agreement on one thing: Public disclosure of political contributions is a good thing. That was my view as well, until I campaigned as the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate seat in Oregon in 2010. The reality is that public disclosure serves the interests of incumbents running for re-election by discouraging support for challengers. Here’s how it works.
