Climate change update

Posted · Add Comment

The climate continues to change, because that’s what it does. In actual science related news, a satellite designed to find “missing” C02 didn’t quite make it into orbit this week after the payload fairing failed to separate. The fact that this science even needed to be done is evidence that scientists don’t really explain how […]

Adios, Rocky Mountain News

Posted · Add Comment

Today the Rocky Mountain News, Colorado’s oldest newspaper, published its final edition. Despite the government incessant efforts to save America’s car companies, banks, investment houses and a seemingly never-ending parade of special interests, newspapers aren’t in line for rescuing. In the long run, that’s probably a good thing. The way so many in the media […]

Hold on to your wallet

President Barack Obama has unveiled his budget plan, and if you think you’re going to be better off because of it, then you must be on welfare. First, the spending: Obama can complain all he wants about “inheriting” a deficit, but what President Bush gave him was chump change compared to what he’s spending. Second, […]

President Obama's speech

Posted · Add Comment

I didn’t get a chance to listen to all of President Barack Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress last night. In between something I like to call “work” and heading off to see the San Diego State men’s basketball team collapse against BYU, I did manage to catch parts of the speech. Now, […]

Obama, Congress to Constitution: Drop Dead

Posted · Add Comment

Congress appears poised, and President Barack Obama to sign, a law giving District of Columbia delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton a vote in the House. One notable, and foolish, Republican also supports this effort: Sen. Orrin Hatch. Hatch supports the move because it would give Utah an extra representative — for two years. After that, the […]

Cowardice vs. good judgment

Posted · Add Comment

Last week, Attorney General Eric Holder castigated Americans for their cowardice when it came to discussing the issue of race in our society. By the weekend it had become clear to anyone with an ounce of sense that Holder was wrong. New York Post cartoonist Scott Delonas published this commentary on the recently passed stimulus […]

The goal of tax policy

Posted · Add Comment

During the 2008 campaign, then-candidate Barack Obama dismissed tax policy as mainly as a method of getting revenue for the government and more as a way to redistribute wealth by making life more “fair.” Now that Democrats have all the levers of power, you have things like this from Rep. Jerry McNerny (D-Calif.) to look […]

He knows a coward when he sees one

Posted · Add Comment

Attorney General Eric Holder made news this week when he (incorrectly) accused Americans of being too cowardly to talk about race. The real problem is too much talk about race, not too little. As many have noted, and I’ve personally experienced, talking about race can get you in trouble. Lawyers suggest you not take up […]

Libel suit settled

Lobbyist Vicki Iseman has settled her libel suit against the New York Times in return for a dishonest clarification. On Thursday, the two sides released a joint statement saying: “To resolve the lawsuit, Ms. Iseman has accepted The Times’s explanation, which will appear in a Note to Readers to be published in the newspaper on […]

We should've elected his father

Posted · Add Comment

State Sen. Abel Maldonado (R-Tax Hikes) spoke at the GOP convention last year in Denver Minneapolis and told the delegates there that his father, once a sharecropper, knew more about basic economics than Barack Obama. Based on Maldonado’s vote this morning, the voters should’ve elected Abel’s father. (via Patterico)
