Really, as much as I didn’t want to hear his name, Graeme Zielinksi was the perfect spokesman for the Wisconsin Democratic Party. A true reflection of the anti-Scott Walker politics practiced in Wisconsin: After a couple of tweets on March 1 comparing Walker to Jeffrey Dahmer, Zielinski is out as spokesman although he’ll…

There is a growing consensus that Obama overplayed his hand in the absurd fear-mongering about the immediate impact of the sequester. While Republican’s did their own share of fear-mongering as to military cuts, and thereby played into Obama’s hand, it still was Obama’s political hand being played. With the acknowledgement in…

California’s “Green Energy” Completely Fails to Power State

Back in the early 2000’s, the Enron scandal lead to California’s rolling blackouts.  As a result, as an environmental health and safety specialist, I began including information on handing power outages into company safety manuals.

In just 30 years, this state-controlled economy became the world’s second largest, deftly managed by government policies and decrees. One sector the authorities concentrated on was real estate and construction. But…
