This is the whole album, it is worth a listen...

Dixie State University to Revise Policies to Protect Free Speech

Dixie State University, located in St. George, Utah, announced Tuesday it will suspend its unconstitutional speech codes and amend other policies after a lawsuit filed by three students challenged the university and its restriction of their free speech.

Dixie State President Richard Williams announced in an email to the campus community that the university will revise its policies and suspend its speech codes.

“As we work toward writing an updated, comprehensive free speech policy, the administration is mindful of Dixie State’s mission, which is to be ‘a teaching institution that strives to enrich its community and the lives of its students by promoting a culture of learning, values, and community,” Williams wrote.

“Dixie State University is a campus of academic freedom, with the right to inquire broadly and to question, and where even unpopular answers, seemingly absurd ideas, and unconventional thought are not only permitted, but even encouraged,” Williams said.

The First Amendment lawsuit against the university was filed in March after students were banned from handing out promotional flyers for student group Young Americans for Liberty that negatively portrayed Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara.

The flyers were not approved because...

3-D Printed Gun Lawsuit Starts the War Between Gun Control and Free Speech

THIS WEEK MARKS the two-year anniversary since Cody Wilson, the inventor of the world’s first 3-D printable gun, received a letter from the State Department demanding that he remove the blueprints for his plastic-printed firearm from the internet. The alternative: face possible prosecution for violating regulations that forbid the international export of unapproved arms.

Now Wilson is challenging that letter. And in doing so, he’s picking a fight that could pit proponents of gun control and defenders of free speech against each other in an age when the line between a lethal weapon and a collection of bits is blurrier than ever before.

Wilson’s gun manufacturing advocacy group Defense Distributed, along with the gun rights group the Second Amendment Foundation, on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against the State Department and several of its officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry. In their complaint, they claim that a State Department agency called the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) violated their first amendment right to free speech by telling Defense Distributed that it couldn’t publish a 3-D printable file for its one-shot plastic pistol known as the Liberator, along with a collection of other printable gun parts, on its website.

By posting a file online, the DDTC claimed Defense Distributed had potentially violated arms export controls—just as if it had shipped AR-15s to Mexico.

In its 2013 letter to Defense Distributed, the DDTC cited a long-controversial set of ...

After Expanding Under Obamacare, This 123-Year-Old Insurance Company Is Closing Its Doors



After expanding to do business on the Affordable Care Act’s exchanges last year, a Wisconsin-based health insurance company founded in 1892 has announced it will close its doors.

Assurant Inc. announced last week one of its subsidiaries, Assurant Health, an insurance company, will either be sold or shuttered after losing tens of millions of dollars this year. The decision comes 18 months after the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, and industry watchers argue Assurant Health’s end can be attributed to the new health care law.

“The health and employee benefits business segments possess differentiated capabilities in their respective markets, but we do not believe they can meet our return targets at the pace we require,” Alan Colberg, president of Assurant Inc., said in a statement. “While this is a difficult decision, we believe they would be strong assets for new owners that are focused more exclusively on health care and employee benefits.”

In a letter to its shareholders, Assurant Health said it lost money because of...

How Obama’s Recovery Compares to Reagan’s Recovery

Here’s some advice to the White House: it might be time for President Obama to cancel the rest of his
economic “mission accomplished” tour and help figure out how to get the U.S. growing again.

The Department of Commerce delivered the miserable news Wednesday morning that economic growth nearly ground to a halt during the first quarter, up a microscopic 0.2 percent. Even more disturbing, because the population is growing at about 0.8 percent, real per capita GDP is actually negative. Remember we also had an abysmal jobs growth number for March.

Once again economists blamed the frigid and blizzard conditions on the East Coast; and no doubt weather was a factor in the subpar performance.

But this is a long-term pattern under Obama, not a seasonal blip. Back in 2009, Vice President Biden promised us a “Summer of Recovery” and nearly six years later we are all still eagerly waiting for it.

The tepid growth rate so far in 2015 merely extends the track record of the 23 quarter post-Great Recession recovery. The annualized growth rate of 2.24 percent dead last compared to the six other recoveries since 1960, which averaged 3.97 percent after 23 quarters. This translates into nearly $1.7 trillion (in constant 2009 dollars) in absent economic growth.

But the more amazing comparison is that of the Reagan—which trounces this current so-called recovery. That recovery’s sizzling 4.8 percent annualized growth through 23 quarters was more than twice the rate of the current recovery. In other words, for every $1 of economic growth experienced during the present time, the Reagan recovery produced more than $2. As a result, the Reagan recovery gap now stands at a record $2.48 trillion of real annual GDP (in 2009 dollars). The economy is now more than...

Rubio: Central American Leaders Say Human Traffickers Used DACA to Recruit Children to Enter US Illegally

(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said that the Obama administration’s push to give legal status to some illegal aliens is at least in part responsible for the thousands of illegal alien children that have been streaming across the U.S. border with Mexico from Central America over the last couple years.

President Obama’s executive action on immigration “is not just a poison,” Rubio said, “but increasingly put us in a very precarious position, because there is strong evidence backed up by the fact that I’ve had leaders from the northern triangle in Central America – Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador – tell me that DACA was used by trafficking groups in the northern triangle to recruit people to send their children here illegally.”

At the National Review Institute’s summit on Friday in Washington, D.C., Rubio was asked about the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013, which Rubio sponsored. The Senate passed the bill, and if made law, it would give at least 11 million illegal aliens a pathway to citizenship.

Rubio was asked if there was...
