Even Blind Squirrels Trip On Acorns Now and Then

By Bradley Harrington

“What is prudence in the conduct of every private family can scarce be folly in that of a great kingdom.” — Adam Smith, “The Wealth of Nations,” 1776 —

It isn’t often that our state legislators get it right, but — in the fashion of the proverbial blind squirrel that trips on an acorn every now and then — it DOES happen occasionally:

“After nearly a year of work, Wyoming lawmakers let controversial sales and property tax proposals die silent deaths in less than a minute Wednesday … It was something of an anticlimactic end for the four bills that would increase taxes in an attempt to diversify the state’s revenue streams.” (“Legislative committee won’t sponsor property, sales, tourism, tax bills,” WTE, Feb. 1.) read more

ICC Monopoly and Lawsuits

The reader must understand that by adopting ICC “copyrighted” material prevents the copying and dissemination of this material even though it becomes part of law or regulation that effects citizens. It begs the question, if citizens cannot use ignorance of the law as an excuse for violating them, just how can a citizen know, research, and understand these laws and regulations? Politicians and bureaucrats will tell you that you can visit their offices during open hours, or in some cases, the local library. Really! Why not just have it all on their websites for everyone to see? Well, they won’t, and can’t, because the material they make reference to is copyrighted. read more

ENDOW: Kiss Your Job Goodbye

By Bradley Harrington

“A committee is the only known form of life with a hundred bellies and no brain.” — Robert Heinlein, “Methuselah’s Children,” 1958 —

Wyoming’s “Economically Needed Diversity Options for Wyoming” (ENDOW) bill was signed into law by Gov. Matt Mead back on March 3, and — now, as its first step of operation — its 25-member Council has recently been turned loose to solve our “economic diversity” issues:

“As part of the ENDOW Initiative Executive Council’s first meetings Thursday and Friday at Laramie County Community College, the group identified a number of those potential impediments to growth. It also assigned committees to tackle the problems.” (“ENDOW council identifies impediments to economic diversification,” WTE, May 13.) read more
