Abortion-rights protesters gathered outside the Supreme Court building Monday holding signs that read "Birth Control: Not My Boss's Business."
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court this week admonished the Environmental Protection Agency for overreaching in regulating greenhouse gases. The Clean Air Act covers polluters that emit 250 tons per year (or in some cases, 100 tons). This standard makes no sense if applied to greenhouse gases. Thousands of establishments from elementary schools to grocery stores would be, absurdly, covered. So the EPA arbitrarily chose 100,000 tons as the carbon dioxide threshold.
It's a fact of human nature that it's easier to talk about who's to blame for a problem than it is to figure out what to do about the problem.

WASHINGTON - About that stunning defeat.
Hillary Clinton's State Department memoir, "Hard Choices," has just come out, and who among us can contain their excitement?
WASHINGTON - So much for the argument that having more people armed in public places will result in fewer gun deaths.
WASHINGTON - What is it with Susan Rice and the Sunday morning talk shows?
Good for Rick Perry.
There he goes again. At a press conference in Brussels Thursday, President Barack Obama was asked if he was surprised by the controversy over his decision to trade Bowe Bergdahl for five high-ranking Taliban leaders.
WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is highly exercised about "inversion," the practice by which an American corporation acquires a foreign company and moves its headquarters out of the U.S. to benefit from lower tax rates abroad.
WASHINGTON - Baghdad called President Barack Obama's bluff and he came through. He had refused to provide air support to Iraqi government forces until the Iraqis got rid of their divisive sectarian prime minister.
Does the president think the world is a TV show?
I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term "evildoers" to describe al-Qaida and other terrorists. A lot of other people objected as well, but for different reasons.
