It’s not surprising that politicians plead to stop Standard & Poor’s credit warning, they cannot risk losing their pristine rating. After all, there is now a one-in-three chance that the S&P; will downgrade the US Government’s rating in the next two years. Considering S&P; can’t survive without government, though, I give...

The Hill gave a shot at clarifying the facts behind the partisan rhetoric surrounding the rise in gas prices. I take issue, though, with the heavy reliance the author puts on the Energy Information Agency for his “nonpartisan” numbers. His numbers don’t include oil shale deposits and the areas banned for...

Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal is one of my favorite webcomics. One of their recent entries actually had me laughing out loud:

After seeing this, I double-checked to make sure Newt Gingrich’s PhD was in history, not physics.

Robert Nelson really hit the nail on the head yesterday in the DC with his article “Earth Day — a national establishment of religion.”

As such, issues such as climate change involve more than just “science.” The Bible’s book of Deuteronomy reveals dire consequences for those who seek to “play God.”...

I wish all my apolitical friends could see this:


Or watch an episode of this:


Or even just read this.

Because maybe we’d see less nonsense and more progress.

Apparently one of Ron Paul’s other sons is considering running for the Senate in Texas. While I really have enjoyed Rand Paul’s contributions to our political discourse, Robert Paul should not run in Texas. Since I first looked at the Senate race in Texas, it has become pretty obvious to me...

Did Steve Jobs get killed by creating an iPad? Or did Jesse Jackson Jr. skip reading Bastiat?

Sort of sounds like a regime change to me….

David Cameron, Barack Obama and Nicolas Sarkozy upped the stakes in the Libya conflict last night as they vowed to fight on until Colonel Gaddafi is ousted.

In a joint article, the British, American and French leaders warned that it would be an ‘unconscionable...

New civility means apologizing once you’ve suggested that someone who disagrees with you should have not been born. Keith Olbermann, the most vitriolic Cornell alum I can think of, has been on a roll:

This week has hosted an unusual amount of conservative speakers on the Cornell campus. On Monday, Yuval Levin, of National Affairs fame, addressed the student body through our “Freedom and Free Societies” speaker series. Levin gave a really succinct overview of the implications of Obamacare. Basically, we have an even...

Maddow referred to “nullification” as something only “racist neo-Confederates” would support. Tom Woods makes an apt criticism of this insipid characterization over at Lew Rockwell:

Whatever happened to “small is beautiful,” Rachel? Remember that progressive slogan (along with “question authority,” yet another such slogan to bite the dust)? Some 309 million people...
