The government should have just taken over the banking sector, so we could avoid things like this, The End Of Free Checking?

On Sat., Oct. 1, new regulations from the Dodd-Frank financial overhaul go into effect on debit cards. Specifically, they impose price controls on “interchange fees,” the fees that banks and...

This could not wait for a bumper sticker post, and anyway, no bumper stickers were involved, Anti-Obama sign in Uptown neighborhood draws controversy (h/t reader Leland):

NEW ORLEANS — There are several political signs attracting all kinds of attention in one Uptown neighborhood.

On Wednesday, crowds gathered at the corner of Calhoun and Coralie streets, looking at several signs depicting President Barack Obama as either a dunce, a puppet or a crying baby in a diaper.


 

Update: Michelle Malkin reminds us that these signs are mild compared to anti-Bush signs; see some examples in my prior post, Because Only The Far Right Incites Violence.

The Obama administration has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the 11th Circuit case which found the Obamacare mandate to be unconstitutional.

There is no absolute right to appeal to the Supreme Court in this case; the Court decides which cases it will take.  Dahlia Lithwick has a round up of...

From Caroline Glick, in a must read post:

It’s my prayer for coming year that US Jewish community will act with the majority of their fellow Americans to defend Israel.

What’s most stunning is that such a prayer even is needed.

Update: I should have pointed out that Glick cites extensively to Matthew Knee’s post...

Obama gave a good speech at the U.N. last week, I credited him with that.

But his Israel policy still encourages Palestinian intransigence, as evidenced by his demands that Israel cease building new housing units in the Jewish neighborhood of Gilo.  Gilo occupies a strategic hill...

My guess is that none of these dancers has ever been a “working people.”  (h/t @jpodhoretz)
