bleg: help stop an anti-gay amendment in North Carolina! (and a few links)

Give to stop an anti-gay amendment in North Carolina! They vote on Tuesday!

The amendment would ban same-sex marriage and civil unions – in marriage map terms that would turn North Carolina from beige to the darkest red. Unfortunately, it has been looking like it’s likely to pass, but polling has been turning towards the “No” side.

(if anyone out there is in North Carolina: please please please vote against Amendment 1!)

Are Apple’s Tax Games Bad for America? – the summary says it perfectly: “The great global tax maze deprives the United States of revenue and jobs. But there’s not much we can do to prevent it.”

– A new study shows all-white juries convict a higher percentage of blacks, and having just one black person on the jury is enough to eliminate the effect.

– Bruce Bartlett (who served under Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and on the staffs of Jack Kemp and Ron Paul) shows yet again that lowering taxes probably won’t increase employment, and the US’s taxes are among the lowest in the world.
