It’s a list of changes the health care bill will make through the first 500 pages, which is what | Read More »
Why Not Cap & Trade Everything?
The general logic behind the cap & trade system (explained at great length in my previous post) is that we need x (green energy) but are using y (fossil fuels) because it is currently impossible to gain the same benefits from x at the same efficiency & price as y. Therefore, the free market has failed because it is not developing ways to use x | Read More »
Comprehensive Cap & Trade Primer
When I think about cap & trade, I am reminded of an initiation prank that was played on new Soldiers in my unit during motor pool maintenance. A sergeant would tell a Soldier to get emissions samples from a vehicle and hand them a plastic shopping bag. The Soldier then went and put the bag on the exhaust pipe of a vehicle for a while | Read More »

What the heck does Rush Limbaugh have to do with anything anyway?
Saul Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals , instructed to “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” That’s exactly what Obama and the Democrats are doing right now, and if the Recent Politico.com article is to be believed, they’ve been planning this since October of last year. It wasn’t long after Obama won the election that he stirred the hornets’ nest up | Read More »
Money is the Root of All Evil: An Excerpt
Rearden heard Bertram Scudder, outside the group, say to a girl who made some sound of indignation, “Don’t let him disturb you. You know, money is the root of all evil – and he’s the typical product of money.” “So you think money is the root of all evil?” said Francisco. “Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool | Read More »
Oh yeah, about those tax breaks…
God bless the tireless journalists at the AP. Taking a break from their endless, but vital, Palin-bashing, they’ve now discovered that those tax breaks we’ve heard so much about really aren’t that big of a deal to about 84% of the population. You can read about it here: http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5jye2lJN2jj4Bi5rooDwdJhZ4bsPAD94DFVF00 My favorite part of the article is the quote from this guy:”I don’t think it’s going | Read More »
Gripped by Right-Wing Rage!!!
I’ve heard a lot lately about vicious, right-wing rage popping up since election night. I suppose the idea is that conservatives (i.e. bitter white people) are so racist and such sore losers that they are foaming at the mouth angry to the point of insanity. I even had someone tell me about how right-wingers were rioting in California after the election, but it turns out | Read More »
Finding the Soul of the GOP
Before we have the battle for the future of our country, the GOP is going to have a battle for its soul. The GOP has been using conservatives who were upset with the Democrats for some time now, especially in the South. The thing is, though, the party is not run by real conservatives. It is full of moderates, half-liberals, and people cutting deals with | Read More »
McCain Strikes Out Looking
I hate to be such a downer, but let me announce this now: the election is officially over and Obama, who has never even been a contributing member of the economy, has won. I don’t like it, but McCain just lost his last chance to break away from Obama. One difference between the two is supposed to be that McCain is going to clean up | Read More »
