Round-up: Coke Zero Edition

(1) Fight socialism, drink Coke Zero! Hugo Chavez has banned the tasty beverage from Venezuela for "health" reasons.

(2) Obama is going to take away your gun knife! "They are saying that any knife that you can open quickly or any knife that you can open with one hand is therefore a switchblade."

(3) The obligatory mention.... The AMA has come out against the public health plan option:
"The A.M.A. does not believe that creating a public health insurance option for non-disabled individuals under age 65 is the best way to expand health insurance coverage and lower costs. The introduction of a new public plan threatens to restrict patient choice by driving out private insurers, which currently provide coverage for nearly 70 percent of Americans."

(4) Obama is Mirandizing terror suspects. This used to be a punch line, now it's real.


We're shifting back to a law-enforcement model for terrorism. Awesome. That worked out so well before...

(5) Oh noes! Not a non-binding shareholder vote on compensation!

What a joke! How about fixing corporate governance laws so shareholders can decide this or any other issue without special say-so from the government? This is a band-aid on the gunshot wound of shareholder rights.
