There are few things more dangerous to private enterprise than government bureaucrats with time on their hands. And since most bureaucrats have no legitimate reason for being – they have lots and lots of time on their hands.
In 2009, the federal government had at least 2,748,978 […]
Clint Eastwood’s iconic Dirty Harry Callahan uttered one of the greatest movie lines of all time: “A man’s got to know his limitations.” It would appear no one in Washington, D.C. has ever heard of Harry or his weighty wisdom.
No one in our nation’s capitol seems […]
In his speech of August 3, 2015 President Obama invoked pity for asthmatics in promoting his Clean Power Plan, and did that mainly to forestall criticism of the plan. I am not an asthmatic. But, I am a life-long respiratory-allergy and chronic-sinusitis patient treated by an allergist. So, I do have some empathy with asthmatics; […]
Thank goodness we last November gave the Republicans the Senate majority.
Who besides the GOP would resurrect government money for ridiculous “green” “energy” – which is neither green nor energy? To the tune of tens (if not hundreds) of billions of dollars more down the juice-less […]
Former President Richard Nixon is an ancestral RINO – Republican In Name Only. The wobbly GOP wing that insists on delivering us Diet Democrat policies.
So it was in 1970 when President Nixon signed an executive order creating the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Get that? A unilateral […]
One of the environmental advocates who coined this term recently revealed to Jean Chemnick, a reporter for E&E, one of the Left’s most potent weapons in dominating the policy discourse (even while, often although not always, losing political battles). Call it the “framing war.”
One of the older HAARP transmitters in Alaska. Now what, exactly, does this thing do?
May’s weather in Texas hasn’t just been different, or even record-breaking; it has been unnatural. What are “they” doing now?
It is an empirical fact – a metaphysical certitude. Government overreaches.
And the Barack Obama Administration has the longest, most overactive arms ever. With many, many, MANY power-grabbing hands.
Obama’s Legacy of Overreach

Graph correlating increasing carbon dioxide (CO2) with global cooling.
I seem to find myself amused of late reading frequently-published commentaries by non-certified psychobabblers how “Climate Change skeptics” suffer from mental illness. Apparently, skepticism rather than abstaining from […]
This will be a tough write. But let’s start with the book and the title. The book is At Home by Bill Bryson. And it is about all the changes that took place around the 1850’s. It appears about that time give or take about 30 […]
At a time when South Carolina lawmakers are having trouble getting bills passed, they have an opportunity to prevent tax hikes, unleash the potential of solar power and make those on both sides of the aisle happy.
In 2014 the South Carolina General Assembly passed landmark […]
California – the Golden State that hasn’t been golden in decades. And has for decades been under the near total control of the Democrat Party. These two things are not unrelated.
California has for the Reality-based community long been a perfect reverse barometer. Anything the […]
North Carolina utility monopolies such as Duke Energy Carolinas and Dominion North Carolina Power have planted a poison pill in a piece of legislation designed to provide more energy choice and energy independence in North Carolina.
Publicly, the utilities are opposing the bill to prevent the innovative third-party-owned […]
Mike Shedlock had an intriguing column this last weekend about Detroit (and other major cities) installing streetcar systems, at seriously high costs, while technology marches forward, toward, he suggests, to driverless automobiles which may be the rapid transit of the future.
Whether or not such […]
We are (thank God) in the fourth quarter of the Barack Obama Administration. Our long national nightmare is more than three-quarters over.
That’s the good news. The bad news is – everyone in the Barack Obama Administration knows it too.
This waning Administration is in […]
Most of us have probably been pretty happy about the relatively low gas prices we’ve been enjoying since late last year. Not surprisingly, however, environmentalists driving to the latest Keystone pipeline protest aren’t quite as joyful. Lower gas prices generally mean increased consumption […]
The current presidential administration and State Department have been long touting that global warming/climate change are just as dangerous as Russian bears and Islamic terrorists. In February 2014, Secretary of State John Kerry addressed Asian leaders in Jakarta by informing them, “Climate change can now be considered […]
With the coldest winter since the 1880’s what will the global alarmists think of next. Let’s start with the premise: What is the purpose of the propaganda behind GW&CC (global warming and climate change. The propaganda and almost all propaganda causes a flow of money of sorts […]
