Did Terry McAuliffe allow GreenTech to keep on fundraising, using his name?
Man, the Washington Post is really setting itself up for some severe criticism when they finally end up endorsing Terry McAuliffe. It’s like they’re providing us with all the information we need to discredit said endorsement ahead of time: …Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe (D), is listed in a recent confidential memorandum to prospective investors as GreenTech Automotive’s “chairman emeritus.” The 70-page document includes photographs | Read More »
How John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are Funding Obamacare
Don’t be fooled by this political theater going on in Washington, DC. The fix is in and both sides are trying to fund ObamaCare while saving face. The whole of House Republican Leadership thinks you are stupid. They have passed a bill that they know will be changed by Harry Reid before it goes back to the House in a few days. The smoking gun | Read More »
Twitchy is aggregating “Hey! Your health care plan got cancelled!” letters. #obamacare
They’re getting quite the collection. Some things to remember: Starting January 1st, 2014, people WILL be required to get health care. Or pay a fine. Starting January 1st, 2014, employers will NOT be required to offer people health care. Barack Obama gave them one year extensions, not individuals.

H.S. Football Games Moved for ‘Environmental’ Reasons. Wait, what?
Tulsa Public Schools administrators moved the venue for two high schools’ future home football games. It’s for the children, after all. Oh, my gosh. We certainly would not want to expose student-athletes to “environmental elements”. The mind reels as it imagines a football pitch-cum-Love Canal poisoned with pesticides, herbicides or (G_d forbid) “fracking chemicals“. As it turns out, this particular football suffered from environmental contamination, alright: | Read More »
How a reporter for the Cleveland Press nearly had YOUR grandfather killed invading Kyushu!
Doesn’t sound so noble that way, huh? Something that strikes me about this piece about the idiot reporter who nearly revealed the Manhattan Project to the Axis – and the commentary to that piece in the Atlantic: neither account takes the time to say, Oh, by the way, this was a hideously irresponsible thing to write and publish while we were in the middle of | Read More »

Tech at Night: MPAA misses the facts on Google. Dish Network wins for innovation.
Are there people who use search services like Google’s to find illegal distributions of works? For some crazy reason, MPAA thinks not. The evidence seems to disagree.
When it comes to arguments about Net Neutrality, attitude is not a substitute for facts and reason. Then again do the Net Neutrality zealots like Susan Crawford even have any?
