"I don't have a whole lot of problem with 40 to 90% of the human race dying before the end of the year" This is probably the goal of the enviros. They think we're the scourge of the planet, so getting rid of most of us will make things better. I don't agree with you about having no problem with 40%+ of the population dying. The disease won't be selective of the people it kills, so everyone from the welfare recipient to Bill Gates will be on its list. I don't want to imagine how badly society will break down with even a 40% kill ratio. 40% of the doctors who treat diseases (probably more, actually, because they'll be dealing directly with it) will go, along with 40% of power plant operators, 40% of produce drivers, etc, etc.

I think I'd change "awesome government power " to "horrific government power " - it's awesome to civil servants, but horrific to the rest of us...

The original article was on TCSDaily, which no longer exists. So the above is an excerpt from the article. Another excerpt is from here: http://blog.kir.com/archives/2006/12/limited_over_po.asp

Here's a different take, from a different guy with a PhD in economics, as to the motivations of politicians: http://joebuckley.wordpress.com/2008/04/07/money-or-power-decisions-decisions/

Sounds right. Dr. Sowell is assuming that paying more will give us more ethical politicians. I don't think that's the case. I'm going to try digging up an article by Arnold kling, another economist, for other reasons why people become politicians.
Didn't the city approve the sign in the first place?
Probably, but they could be Jewish liberals (good bet that if they're Jewish, they're liberals, in the US). Based on the article, there's not enough information for me to draw any conclusions, except that I don't want to live in that city...
According to the article "A Muslim woman, fond of neither pork nor free speech, complained online, garnering a sufficient contingent of busybodies to pressure the restaurant to take down the sign." So, one Muslim complained, but a bunch of "busybodies" helped. There's no mention of their religion(s). No conclusion can really be drawn about anyone besides the one Muslim woman. Except that if no one else cared, she would've been ignored.

I think if you switch "influence" and "retards" in your first sentence, it will be more accurate :)
