The Crux

The crux of the AGW debate from the POV of “deniers.” With the IPCC now issuing the first segment of its latest mammoth study on the same topic, readers should take the NAS pronouncement with a large grain of salt—and the IPCC report too. This is an attempt to change the subject and ignore the […]

It Continues

Labor Unions

When you’re Obama, and you’ve lost the labor unions, you know that your policy is utterly fucked. Labor unions are among the key institutions responsible for the passage of Obamacare. They spent tons of money electing Democrats to Congress in 2006 and 2008, and fought hard to push the health law through the legislature in […]

This is the administration showing its true colors, taking their ball and going home when they don’t get everything their way. These park closings are nothing more than the administration’s way of making sure that John Q.

Poor Wittle Babies

It looks like somebody’s got their panties in a bunch. WaPo: Don’t call the federal workers waiting to buy lunch from downtown Washington’s food trucks “nonessentials.” It’s like being branded with a scarlet letter N, or ending up the punchline of a late-night comedy bit that’s actually not that funny when there are bills to […]

No It Isn’t

Rational Choices

Even crack addicts make good choices when given choices. “They didn’t fit the caricature of the drug addict who can’t stop once he gets a taste,” Dr. Hart said. “When they were given an alternative to crack, they made rational economic decisions.” When methamphetamine replaced crack as the great drug scourge in the United States, […]
