WATCH: "Legal encapsulation is not effectively possible. So it's fun to kind of challenge the state to greater and greater levels of its own hyper-statism."

James Bond supervillain Michael Bloomberg has sworn that he's getting a fast-pass through the Pearly Gates because he's decided to amp up his lobbying against gun rights with another $50 million to create "grassroots" anti-gun lobbying.

Not sure how I'd spend the money if I found myself as rich as Bloomberg, but I certainly wouldn't use it to push for depriving people of their civil rights.

I'm against it, as a Canadian. Alberta crude is insanely dirty and polluting like you wouldn't believe. It's irresponsible, ecologically unsustainable, and is rapidly turning Alberta into a dystopian hellscape that won't be able to recover for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. It's poisoning prime agricultural land, and it's virtually certain to destroy massive watersheds. Shale oil has a very poor return on energy investment compared to natural gas.

The Harper government needs to get their collective lips off American cock and nix this travesty as soon as possible.

So, is the appropriate phrase here "Low-hanging fruit" or "soft target"?

The stark fact is that Ukraine is not a place over which the U.S. and NATO should be ready to go to war, and nothing short of going to war will change its fate.

The Second Amendment protects the right to armed self-defense. Does that include the right to carry guns in public?

We were told that there are 30+ million people uninsured in the US. What about the other 20+ million?

It’s a good thing that we have these competing estimates. For one thing, each one provides a check on the other. Both scorekeepers know that their estimates will be checked against the other, so neither wants to go too far out on a limb. This is especially useful for helping check OMB’s natural political incentives for optimism. As part of the White House, there are obvious reasons why OMB tends to see brighter economic futures; CBO’s follow-up score helps make sure that optimism doesn’t get too far out of hand.
Each year the president releases a budget plan, and each year we get two different sets of projections about what the effects of the budget plan would
