OMGosh, the climate change alarmists have just gotten more ridiculous. Here’s the problem as I see it. Because those who knew the global cooling/warming/climate change science was massively flakey didn’t have a platform to express their horror/dismay/disbelief at the complete crap going into reports like the one produced by Michael Mann, the IPCC and other […]

I signed up for Apple Care, our state’s health care exchange. Until  now I’ve paid for my health care out of pocket and that has worked wonderfully well for me. I’d like to continue to do that and have a high deductible policy that covered me in case of disaster but that’s not available to […]

Apparently Bernie Sanders is advocating a free bachelor’s degree for all and someone on Laissez Faire Capitalism posted a mocking cartoon.  I took exception to Bernie Sanders’ socialistic thinking and posted this: This is so interesting. It speaks to a complete failure to understand economics and the mechanics of supply and demand. The question regarding […]

This morning the Tea Party’s Facebook feed has another “bad Obama” posting.  Various conservative groups run this sort of thing almost weekly.  The latest is a repeat of how “bad” Obama is because he vacations in Hawaii and he’s off to do it again soon and it costs $4 million and “ew, isn’t that horrible”.  […]

Today is Milton Friedman’s 100th birthday.  There are few people for whom I have as much respect, nor any I laud more frequently.  In celebration of his birthday, I’d like to extend this idea. What if, in the process of writing new legislation, a short treatise was required that referenced all the prior related legislation, […]

In my RSS feed (I use Bloglines as I’m still boycotting Google) I have over 30 hard and soft news sources.  I can get away with having this many because most don’t produce a lot of data daily.  For example, one of my favorite singers, Diana Krall, adds concert dates every couple months.  I subscribe […]

Still riding the “ain’t no such thing” global warming horse

The rain can stop any time now. If it doesn’t, I’m considering ark building as a potential hobby. There’s lots going on in the global warming debate. Much of the steam has seeped out of the global warmists’ engine. Poland, among other EU eastern border countries, has told the rest of the EU to eff […]

Have you had days when you didn’t feel particularly nice?  I think we all do. Now that I’m older, I generally try to rein in the chaos-generating waves, where in the past I would have let my pencil fly.  So, here is the kinder, gentler take on Sandra Fluke and the argument she’s put forth. […]

. . . to the man behind the curtain. I’m pretty sure everyone’s seen the ad with the cartoon characters representing the tapped out Federal Reserve with Ben Bernanke and Obama hiding in the vault with all the government IOUs.  You get a real feel for the slight-of-hand going on in our government.  I don’t […]

In my RSS feed this morning was an article by A. Lawrence Chickering about annual get-togethers he had with William F. Buckley Jr. and Milton Friedman on the second weekend in January.  I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for their conversations.  I have no doubt they would have been […]
