Last month’s Nanny tackled the “scourge” of distracted walking, and this month’s runners-up have their sights set on banning big-leaguers from dipping and toddlers from talking.
But top dishonors go to the nanny from Nevada who’s picking a fight with prostitutes.
Presenting Reason.tv’s Nanny of the Month for February 2011: Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV)!
Approximately 90 [...]
Public school teachers are at the forefront of protests against state budget cuts and restrictions on collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin, New Jersey, Ohio, and elsewhere.
Teachers have a lot to lose. According to Department of Education statistics, in 2007-2008 (the latest year available), full-time public school teachers across the country made an average of $53,230 in [...]

ROBERT GIBBS: Damn the Times! It was supposed to be two sentences on B37. Well, the distraction won’t last forever, sir. It’ll be big news when the courts [...]
Last month Reason.tv recognized 2010’s Nanny of the Year, and now it’s onto a brand new year of nagging nannies.
This month’s slate features heartland regulators targeting drinking games and New Jersey educators drug testing 11-year-olds.
But top dishonors go to the New York pol who’s pushing a bill that would make it illegal to cross the [...]
During Tuesday’s State of the Union address President Obama mentioned the word “jobs” 31 times, topping last year’s tally by two. Back then he promised to make jobs his “number-one focus in 2010″ and then promptly focused on passing ObamaCare, regulating Wall Street, slapping a moratorium on drilling for oil in [...]
President Obama spent last year’s State of the Union address celebrating spending programs past (hooray, stimulus!) and proposing new budget-busters. The shellacking Democrats took during the 2010 midterm elections was supposed to change all that, but at Tuesday night’s SOTU Obama reverted to his “throw-money-at-every-conceivable-problem” self.
