Original Article

Posted By:hoosier observer, 11/28/2012 1:07:38 PM

In an unusual step, a U.S. congressman is proposing a two-year ban on all new federal legislation regulating the Internet. Rep. Darrell Issa, a Republican from California who has been an advocate for Internet freedoms, has posted online a draft of his legislation, the Internet American Moratorium Act of 2012. The bill would "create a two-year moratorium on any new laws, rules or regulations governing the Internet."

Comments:
Issa is asking for feedback on this issue

Every newly proposed regulation should be judged with an awareness of fanaticism´s desire to suppress other viewpoints. Technical standards may be needed, so just weed out the bad stuff.

I wonder if it would undo the online Sales Tax bills HR4179 and S1832?

Gov. Mike Pence has signed a bill pulling Indiana from the reading and math education standards adopted by most states around the country. The governor´s office says Pence signed on Monday the proposal approved by legislators requiring the State Board of Education to draft new standards outlining what students should be learning in each grade rather than using the Common Core standards currently in place. Pence said in a statement he believed Indiana´s students are best served by education decisions made at the state and local level.

Pontiac, Mich. -- A mummified body was found in a garage of a Pontiac, Michigan, home. Investigators found her body in a vehicle that was parked in the garage and believe it has been there for at least six years. Even more puzzling is voting records show that the woman voted in November 2010 but investigators believe she died in 2008. The clerk for the city is blaming it on a computer error but her family thinks there was foul play and that she did not die from natural causes.

Indianapolis - Indiana´s House of Representatives has approved a proposal that would place the state´s gay marriage ban in the constitution. The House voted 57-40 Tuesday in favor of the measure. The proposed ban now heads to the Indiana Senate, where members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are set to take up the issue. The vote followed weeks of uncertainty for a measure that swept through the General Assembly with ease just three years ago.

Ukraine´s Interior Ministry said protesters, wearing masks and helmets, used flares, tear gas, baseball bats and stones in clashes with police, breaking doors and windows on police buses and trying to take over government buildings. Video from the scene showed protesters and police squaring off,

A federal judge in South Bend has provided some last minute relief to a host of Catholic entities across northern Indiana. A preliminary injunction blocks enforcement of the so-called “contraceptive mandate” in the federal government’s Affordable Care Act. As a result, the University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne now has what the University of Notre Dame was denied: Court ordered protection for employees from the contraception mandate due to take effect January 1st.

The president of Indiana University is criticizing a decision by the American Studies Association to endorse a boycott of Israeli universities. Michael McRobbie says the university plans to withdraw immediately as an ASA institutional member, saying such boycotts have a profound chilling effect on academic freedom. He says universities must be clear and unequivocal in rejecting them.

Richmond, Va. – The Chesterfield Marine who claimed he was wrongfully detained over posts he made to Facebook has filed a civil rights lawsuit against Chesterfield Police officers and other government workers, according to his attorneys from The Rutherford Institute. They claim Brandon Raub’s First and Fourth Amendment Rights were violated when FBI agents appeared at Raub’s Chesterfield home last summer. Raub claims the agents questioned him about his Facebok postings on the government’s version of 9/11 and the role of the Federal Reserve.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
