Tech at Night: Don’t Break the Net
Don’t break the net. Internet access should not be a public utility. It has nothing to do with Net Neutrality. It would kill investment and expansion of high speed services to more people. More regulations hurt the little guy more than the big guy. Regulations hinder competition. Fast lanes become more likely. Netflix is just playing games to get a competitive advantage just like every other lobbying business. And once this gets in, FCC will go all out, the same way it always does.
This is a good site, covering a number of myths about the proposed Title II Reclassification, a dramatic step the radicals are pushing for the FCC to do, basically overturning a key concept of the bipartisan Telecommunications Act, and re-regulating the Internet as a phone service. It’s a terrible idea.

Oil Simulation, Climate Modeling and the Scientific Method
Part I concerned a WSJ essay by Robert J. Caprara, “Confessions of a Computer Modeler”. In Part II I will share what I know about computer modeling in oil and gas applications, and raise questions about climate modeling. This is a long post, offered for your reading enjoyment this holiday weekend. I’ll start with the conclusions so we can see where we’re going…
One hopes that the viciously-beaten George Galloway is now asking himself, “Why do they hate me?”
What? Surely George Galloway doesn’t *want* my good wishes. After all, I’m a dirty little Zionist lackey and Jew-lover.

Alleged ISIS laptop had a checklist for creating bioweapons.
The details of the materials quoted in that Foreign Policy article are sufficiently detailed that I’m not comfortable repeating them: you never know what foreign bad actors might be trolling this site for intel.

We Are At War With ISIS And They Are A Real, Sophisticated, Threat
Despite comments to the contrary by the White House spokesman, we are at war with ISIS and they are a real and sophisticated threat. The intentions of the Islamic State have been made crystal clear: kill the infidel and establish the caliphate by any means necessary. The escalations in just the last few weeks, specifically the beheadings, have awakened many to the dangers of the | Read More »
Race: A Conservative View
The recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, ought to cause us to pause and reflect on the issue of race in America. It seems like after every incident similar to what is happening in that St. Louis suburb, we hear calls from our friends on the Left for a “national conversation on race”. It is a conversation we have needed to have for decades, and it | Read More »

When Fear Of The Race Card Destroys People
Professor Alexis Jay will probably regret forever accepting the tasker to investigate and author “Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham (1997 – 2013).” Like the PI played by Nicholas Cage in the movie “8MM” she has seen and heard things that cannot be unseen and unheard. Her first two paragraphs in the executive summary of her report are the sort of thing you | Read More »

What Leading From Behind Looks Like
I do not think Barack Obama is a closet sympathizer of muslim Jihadists bent on our destruction, but God help me I suddenly understand how some have arrived at that conclusion. To stand up and tell the world that we are going to do zero to help Ukraine and have no strategy to defeat ISIS is just insane. That the White House staff had to | Read More »
Rep. Annie Kuster (D, New Hampshire-02) can’t find an actual Republican supporter?
Meet Robin Partello. And who is she? Well, she was someone who was featured as a Republican offering praise for Annie Kuster in a recent campaign ad for New Hampshire’s Second District. Just one, small, teeny-tiny problem: Woman in @RepAnnieKuster ad claims to be Republican, but Nashua clerk says she’s undeclared #nhpolitics #nh02 pic.twitter.com/lm9U7nmafG — James Pindell (WMUR) (@JamesPindell) August 27, 2014 That sounded a | Read More »
MT-Sen: Things aren’t going well for Dem Nominee Amanda Curtis
The Montana Senate race has been perhaps the most interesting contest thus far in the 2014 Senate election cycle. Original nominee, and sitting interim Senator, John Walsh was busted for plagiarism on a 14 page (!) Master’s thesis*. Sensing that this might be a liability on the campaign trail, he was replaced with single term Montana State Representative Amanda Curtis. She’s already come under fire | Read More »
The Atlantic’s Factually Challenged Attack on the Supreme Court
Garrett Epps, writing yesterday in The Atlantic, unleashed a nakedly partisan and brazenly inaccurate attack on the Supreme Court that is transparently designed to sway the way the Justices decide the Halbig case. The headline of Epps’ piece blaringly decries “The Extreme Partisanship of John Roberts’ Supreme Court”: “Politics are closely divided,” John Roberts told scholar Jeffrey Rosen after his first term as chief justice. “The same with the Congress. There | Read More »
Rachel Maddow, neocon.
Of course I wrote that with malice aforethought. What’s the point of this gig if I can’t insert a needle here or there? That doesn’t detract from the slightly dark humor coming from this appearance of Maddow on MSNBC *: Rachel Maddow made a rare daytime appearance on MSNBC Wednesday, sitting down with Ezra Klein, who was filling in for Alex Wagner, to talk about the possibility of a Congressional | Read More »
You Will Be Made to Care
Vanderbilt University has decided student groups on campus cannot determine their own leadership. Consequently, a muslim can run the Christian group, a global warming skeptic can run the Earth First group, a Republican can run the College Democrats, etc. You get the idea. The rule came in part because, as you will not be surprised to learn, a Christian fraternity “had expelled several students for | Read More »
