CAN STATES have SANCTIONS against IRAN? GENERALLY, NO…

Posted at Virginia Right! - News from Virginia, the US and the World

This was a fascinating article about states have sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran.  I started to see red.  States cannot constitutionally have a foreign policy.  It is clear and here is the Constitutional provision: “No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, orConfederation; …” *** “No State shall, without the Consent of Congress,…enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a for- eign Power,…” Now certainly states can have policies in place so as to implement the economic sanctions.  They are the law

Dreams of my Grandfather

Posted at Virginia Right! - News from Virginia, the US and the World

My Grandfather, Wallace Tucker, remains one of the wisest men I’ve ever known. He was a Merchant Marine and Southern Baptist preacher, and I suppose I absorbed from him some desire to act and to preach. I have never seen a preacher less interested in how his congregation felt about his sermons. The hard truth was all that mattered and he would preach at his congregation with all the passion of a man who wishes, not to save them, but to see them save themselves from themselves. He tackled the hypocrisy of Sunday-Christianity and brought down the gospel to all those who would listen as a plea for obedience, virtue, and joy for the short period of time that we live on this Earth.

TAXING YOUR TV?: State Rep. Art Turner (D-09) proposed a tax on satellite TV that would hurt rural Illinoisans with no other TV options, along with bars and other consumers. By Warner Todd Huston | Watchdog Arena Illinois State Representative Art Turner (D-09) has floated the idea of taxing satellite TV; he insists that a five percent tax would raise upwards of $110 million in new revenue a year. Many Illinoisans, however, are arguing that such a tax would be both illogical and punitive. Satellite service providers say that the tax doesn’t make sense as a “use tax” because their service comes down from the sky using no public resources.

By Greg Markle | Watchdog Opinion A new report reveals that the small Los Angeles County cities of Vernon, Irwindale, Beverly Hills, La Verne, Pomona, and South Gate confiscated a combined $33.7 million worth of assets using a process called civil asset forfeiture. The Los Angeles Times reports: Even tiny cities took in sizable amounts of forfeiture revenue by working with the U.S. Department of Justice. Vernon, with 112 people, took in nearly $1 million; and Irwindale, with fewer than 1,500 residents, received more than $800,000, the report said.

Photo by: Shutterstock By Dr. Gary L. Wolfram | Watchdog Opinion With Senate Bill 248, the Michigan Legislature is attempting to address a number of problems with the auto insurance market in the state. Michigan’s no-fault system creates misaligned incentives, resulting in auto insurance rates that are among the highest in the nation. There is also a larger question of why we treat severe injuries from car accidents differently than we treat the similar injuries from other types of accidents.

Montpelier tax spree is inexcusable

By Wendy Wilton | Watchdog Opinion The 2015 Doyle poll and others leading up to the 2014 election indicated the majority of Vermonters were stretched to their tax limit for property and income taxes. The gubernatorial race was evidence of this outrage. In the last two weeks, the majority of legislators in the Vermont House voted to ignore the concerns of their constituents and went on a taxation spree. This action is inexplicable given the financial predicament of the state due to shrinking revenues and soft economic growth.  It appears the consensus and camaraderie of their committee meant more to them than the fiscal future of the state and its people.

NOTHING NEW: Clark County’s court-appointed guardianship system has led to abuse in its population of more than 8,500 incapacitated adult residents. The Las Vegas Review Journal reports: Grow old, alone and infirm in Southern Nevada and Clark County will help take care of you. If you’re poor, a public guardian will be appointed at county expense to look after you, your money and your property. If you have money, a private guardian could be appointed by the county.

Baltimore Burns: What’s Wrong With Urban Culture?

Posted at Virginia Right! - News from Virginia, the US and the World

The violence in Baltimore and Ferguson have led many to question what’s wrong with “urban culture”; and let’s face it, when we talk about “urban culture”, let’s at least have the courage to admit that we are talking about black culture. “Black Culture” is something that can be seen objectively and first hand, but it also carries with it a stigma and a conspicuous, in your face , level of attention. Why? I recognize that this is a third-rail conversation and that no one likes talking about this, but I feel compelled to try. In America, being “black” is a political designation and carries with it considerable consequences on the American political landscape.

GIVE ME LIBERTY: “Liberty City” legislation is now being considered in Texas for cities seeking policies that limit local government spending and protect residents’ rights. By Lou Ann Anderson | Watchdog Arena Texans take freedom seriously. And despite a penchant for doing things “big,” big, intrusive government is one thing they’ve historically resisted. With this, the growing appeal of “Liberty Cities” – a new municipal government structure based on maintaining limited government, pro-free market policies and protecting the rights of its citizens – is no surprise. “Liberty Cities take an approach of simple, limited-purpose government providing essential services that don’t regulate or tax the heck out of you,” Jess Fields, Texas Public Policy Foundation senior policy analyst, said.

By PA Independent Staff Pennsylvania took over the struggling School District of Philadelphia 14 years ago, hoping to help address poor student performance and sharp budget deficits. INTERVENTION: State Sen. Lloyd Smucker, R-Lancaster, wants to put failing schools under state control. The results have been mixed, but that isn’t stopping one state lawmaker from proposing a plan that would have the state intervene in other failing districts, too, Philadelphia education reporter Evan Grossman writes this week. At the state Capitol, a conservative senator aired a plan to rein in public employee compensation, and it’s already drawing rebuke from one prominent union official.

By Marjorie Haun | Watchdog Arena DENVER, Colo.—The Denver Public School District (DPSD) supports a total of 154 public schools, among which are 50 highly diverse free charter schools. According to its 2013-2014 School Performance Summary, Denver’s public charter schools are, in many cases, out-performing traditional public schools in the same neighborhoods. CHARTERS TAKE CHARGE: In the Denver Public School District, charter schools make up six out of top eight of Denver’s highest performing public schools. Six out of the eight highest performing schools in the Denver Public School District are charter schools, with five out of six of the charter schools belonging to the Denver School of Science and Technology program. The Denver School of Science and Technology (DSST) model is comprised of charter schools focused on “developing core liberal arts skills in reading, writing, mathematics and science.”  Highly structured with college-focused classrooms, clear academic goals, and rigorous behavior expectations appear to support the academic performance of these schools

By Eric Boehm and Steve Greenhut | Watchdog Radio Breaking the Bank is Watchdog.org’s weekly look at the national public pension crisis, how it’s affecting state and city budgets and what can be done — if anything — to fix it. In this week’s episode, hosts Eric Boehm and Steve Greenhut take a break from the pension beat to reflect on the crisis that unfolded over the past two weeks in Baltimore. Everything that there is to say about the protests and riots has already been said, but we turn our focus to another aspect of the city — one that is literally breaking the bank: failed economic development projects that bring tourists and riches to a small part of the city while the rest of Baltimore struggles. Does the city really need to own a $300 million hotel (which lost $5 million last year, alone) or spend $2 billion to redevelop the Inner Harbor while neighborhoods and schools are struggling?  It’s not a problem that is unique to Baltimore — politicians everywhere choose white elephant projects over basic city services — but it’s a problem that is under-reported as we try to understand the crisis in America’s urban communities
