Irony lost on Kayaktivists

There's a huge offshore drilling rig currently docked in Seattle, and another on its way, before making their way to their final home off the coast of Alaska. The greens in the Emerald City are outraged and have shown their outrage by attempting to block the rigs using kayaks. Of course, you know what most kayaks nowadays […]

Everything old is new again

Last week someone I follow on Twitter posted a link to this bit of dreck from the young liberal "thinker" Jonathan Chait over at New York magazine. The story is entitled "How Mitch McConnell Hacked American Democracy." I'm guessing that this is a bad thing. The main gist of the piece appears to be that Senate Minority […]

Don't do us any favors

Back at the height of Catastrophic Anthropogenic (human-caused) Global Warming alarmism, our betters in Sacramento passed Assembly Bill 32 which created a carbon marketplace (a concept championed by the likes of Enron) that oil producers and power plant operators would have to participate in by buying credits to offset their carbon dioxide output. After several […]

Politfraud on oil production

In tonight’s debate, Mitt Romney made a claim that’s been a GOP talking point for nearly a year: “Oil production is down 14 percent this year on federal land.” As is typical, this is a completely true statement. Politifraud gives you the numbers in its very fact check. But as is typical for opinion journalists, […]

Chu got to be kidding me

Energy Secretary Steven Chu is a very smart scientist. He’s a piss-poor manager. Just a week after the GAO gave his agency an 85 percent failure rate [PDF Format] when it came to following the proper procedures for awarding loan guarantees to companies such as Solyndra, Beacon Power and EnerDel, Chu was up on Capitol […]

In testimony before Congress yesterday, Energy Secretary Steven Chu, who in the past has advocated European gas price levels of $8+ a gallon, confessed that the Obama administration isn’t interested in lowering gas prices. (I paid $4.17 to fill up […]

Worst President evah!

When I think about President Obama’s decision not to issue a permit for the Keystone XL pipeline that would’ve created thousands (or tens of thousands) of jobs and ensured a low-cost source of energy from a staunch ally, I think that I must be dumb. The media has been telling us for years how brilliant […]

Gas prices

I filled up my gas tank yesterday. The debit card/cash price was $4.23 a gallon at the cheapest place in town. The total bill was $64.25. The good news is that I no longer have a 66-mile round-trip commute to work 5 days a week anymore and that if worst came to absolute worst, I […]

Pain at the pump

My gas tank is nearing empty and only one thing’s for sure: The next time I fill up I’ll be paying more than $4 a gallon. At an appearance earlier this week at a foreign-owned wind turbine plant in Pennsylvania, President Barack Obama was asked about high gas prices. In an AP report that has […]
