Now that Gov. Rick Scott’s (R-FL) administration has obtained access to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database — records that Florida could have received months ago had it provided the necessary information to DHS — it has officially abandoned the error-riddled original purge list. But this move comes only after local governments were forced to spend thousands purging voters from the rolls. Think Progress

Old Trend: Constitutional Conservatism; New Trend: Pre-Constitutional Conservatism
Amity Shlaes’s latest column for Bloomberg News argues that all federal taxes should instead be collected by the states. This might seem kind of radical, but, Shlaes explains, it has been done before: There will be objections, of course. The first is that states’ collecting the money isn’t our tradition.

Mayberry R.I.P. Declinist panic. Hysterical nostalgia. America may not be over, but it is certainly in thrall to the idea.
Andy Griffith was a genial and gifted character actor, but when he died on Independence Day eve, you’d have thought we’d lost a Founding Father, not a television star whose last long-running series, the vanilla legal drama Matlock, expired in 1995. The public tributes to Griffith were over-the-top in a way his acting never was, spreading treacle from the evening newscasts to the front page of the New York Times. New York Magazine

And it is a revolution, as this manufacturing surge that began in 2007 continues to break records year after year in the total number of large, capital intensive projects. One factor, of course, is that reshoring of facilities back to the U.S. continues to grow each year.
