Our fund raising round was not successful.  As a result, IDB will be going off line and into cold storage.  If our competitors should stumble, I may re-active the site in the future but for now, we're turning out the lights.

I had planned to go off-line on April 4th.  Due to some important and unplanned changes in our maintenance schedule, I am now bumping that up to next Tuesday morning, March 27th, 2018.  PM 'admin' if you need to reach me. 

You should use the next 5 days to find a new home for your community.

Running IDB has been fun over the years and I hope you enjoyed your time here as well.  Sincerely,  Paul

P.S. News on IDB Funding -- this is now on it's own page to clean up the site a bit.

Senate Republicans Filibuster an Anti-Gun Lawyer. No Judgeship. Obama Throws a Tantrum.

teapartyeconomist.com / By Gary North / March 7, 2013

In 2011, President Obama nominated an anti-gun activist lawyer for a federal judge position.

This woman believes that the courts should hold gun manufacturers liable for crimes committed with guns they made. This is judicial activism on a scale rarely seen.

It take 60 votes to stop a filibuster. Democrats could muster only 51 votes yesterday.

This is the second time she has had her appointment blocked. The first time was in December 2011. The Democrats could muster only 55 votes then.

She is falling behind.

This nomination was DOA in 2011.

People For the American Way is outraged, as we can see here. That’s politics, boys. Win some, lose some. They lost.
