Maricopa voting data files in a home somewhere in Montana.

https://www.12news.com/article/news/politics/maricopa-county-audit-voting-system-data-was-sent-to-a-lab-in-a-of-montana-and-we-dont-know-why/75-a858a88e-e561-40f3-ba53-d530307c07b8

Apparently a one man company has taken possession of the data files.

“A copy of the election data from Maricopa County’s servers and hard drives was sent by controversial contractor CyberNinjas to the Montana home of a technology company president who accused the county of deleting a voter database.”

No observers allowed. Just an 800 pound man in a bed with voter data files of 2.1 million Americans and bags of Cheetos. 😇

Arizonans can rest easy now. 😇😇😇

Unindicted Co-Conspirators in 1/6 Cases Raise Disturbing Questions of Federal Foreknowledge

This is great. G-Men and military intelligence operatives have been infiltrating radical groups in America since the days of J. Edgar Hoover. Said infiltration is a main reason the Klu Klux Klan, for example, is a non-entity today.

The instant story suggests that the so-called “insurrection” at the Capitol on Jan. 6 may have been organized and led by Federal infiltrators, not by any grass roots radicals.

Make of it what you will.

If this is paywalled for you the headline tells the story . . .

“Judge dismisses lawsuit filed by Houston hospital system employees who refused coronavirus vaccine. “

“Methodist is trying to do their business of saving lives without giving them the covid-19 virus. It is a choice made to keep staff, patients and their families safer. [Plaintiff] Bridges can freely choose to accept or refuse a covid-19 vaccine; however, if she refuses, she will simply need to work somewhere else.”

As a technical matter, a national voter registration database makes sense. Photo-ID would also be needed to validate the database records at the polling place, although an alternative might be to require registration renewal periodically.

As a Constitutional matter, creating, administering and maintaining such a database would have to be the responsibility of the states, not the federal government.

So long as the quality checks are robust and control is decentralized, the proposal sounds like a great idea to me.

Decoding The Malthusian Fallacy

I took heat yesterday for suggesting that the resources needed for the production of goods are not really finite in any practical sense. It was a ham-handed suggestion because, of course, all things are finite. If we could drink the oceans, for example, the oceans would cease to exist.

Republican populism, vaccinations and DeSantis.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/us-policy/2021/06/08/republicans-business-desantis-cruise/

DeSantis sign executive orders and legislative bill to prevent cruise lines from requiring vaccinations for crew and passengers.

“Del Rio ( Norwegian Cruise Lines Holding CEO) told investors that federal law will likely override DeSantis’s refusal to permit businesses to require proof of vaccination. But if it does not, Norwegian may move its ships from Miami to the Caribbean.” Gosh, between tariffs and other anti-business moves, which party is trying to control the means of production.

The article is about the new found populism in the GOP. Hawley (“raised fist approval of 1/6 assault guy”) pushing $15 minimum wages through a federal bill he is sponsoring among other anomalies of the “new” Republican message.

Better than Dr. Seuss whining, I suppose.
