USA Frack Surpassing Saudi Arabia As Glut Producer

s vivid as the gas flares in the Texas sky at night, is America’s new-found love affair with fracking. Environmentalists from both the left and among libertarians warn loudly of water contamination disasters and some home owners speak of being rattled by man-made earthquakes, but there is no giving it up the pace now. It’s a whole different world to 2008, when the US oil production snapshot was at a historical low and Sarah Palin was drawing liberal ire declaring that “Drill, Baby Drill!” was the answer to all of America’s problems. Suddenly she seems to have been right, and...

The Climate Science Debate Is Not Over (Or It Is, And All The President's Men Lost)

"All Al Gore ever wanted was to run his own General Store selling you and me carbon credits, creating habits, retooling our children with common core..." —Gabriel Thy ot by a long shot if you are a cranky unbeliever. Don't let anyone tell you that "the science is settled" and "the debate is over" and it's "beyond any reasonable doubt" when it really isn't. In fact, there are plenty of reasons to be skeptical of the steady parade of alarmist hype and low-level panic about man-made global warming. (You should always be a little skeptical of anything you hear about...


Andrew Jackson Abolishes The Central Bank

One hundred and fourscore years ago this month, President Andrew Jackson gave the following speech stipulating why he was closing the United States Bank. BANK OF THE UNITED STATES is in many respects convenient for the Government and useful to the people.

This Pernicious Affordable Health Care Act

ear Citizen, and I include ALL my Leftist friends who I saw celebrating the Supreme Court’s decision yesterday. Have you even READ the damn thing? Shame on each and every one of you, and if you did, and are still supporting this pernicious bill to stand as the Law of the Land, I guess I have just inherited have a full-blown “enemies list” already built into my own Internet empire, so to speak. I have checked with Scopes on a few on these items, and yes, there is some right wing extrapolation to meet the challenge of left wing sneakiness....


Revisiting The Climate Change Science

ANY OF THE FUNDAMENTAL ASSUMPTIONS driving the global warmists projections of future catastrophe are being debunked on a frequent basis lately. These assumptions include challenges to the theory that the Earth climate system is driven by a "greenhouse" effect, that the Sun and other galactic forces are irrelevant, that mathematics and computer science can "solve" the complex equations that the computer models use, and that the models are reasonably accurate representations of the climate system. These challenges are not being made by "deniers" but by independent and well respected mathematicians and physicists around the world. Facts, however, will not deter...
