My favorite frenchman was born on this day back in 1801. Here’s what he wrote about "legal plunder" in his wonderful essay, The Law:
Then abolish this law without delay, for it is not only an evil itself, but also it is a fertile source for further evils because it invites reprisals. If such a law — which may be an isolated case — is not abolished immediately, it will spread, multiply, and develop into a system.

Larry offers up some cautionary advice about the latest jobs number. Excerpt:
In fact, while everyone keeps saying that small businesses are getting killed from taxes and regulations out of Washington, the reality is that the Labor Department’s household survey has produced 1.1 million new jobs in the first quarter of 2010, or 371,000 per month. If that continues, the unemployment rate will be dropping significantly.
Additionally, the corporate payroll number increased by 224,000 — not 162,000 — with the prior two months being revised up by 62,000. And if you take out the 48,000 temporary census-worker jobs, it turns out that government employment actually declined in March.
What’s my point? Credibility. Conservative credibility.
