Happy Earth Day: I want my $10,000
Earth Day is the only “holiday” you don’t see advertised in the greeting card aisle. But we should buy our Congressmen and Senators Earth Day cards.
Mine will include a bill.
I figure I’ll charge them $10,000 (which would put the cost of Earth Day at somewhere around $3 trillion over the last 44 years).
Why do we need an Earth Day? The Earth is just fine without it.

Watermelon Environmentalists Cause Global Warming
Brett Stevens was both humorous and thought-provoking when he announced a while back that “Liberalism Caused Global Warming.” I have political evidence that suggests that he may have even had an empirical point. You see there are two types of environmental activists. Honest ones believe that the government should assume greater powers in order to prevent environmental pollution from doing terrible things to people and places they care about. Dishonest environmental activists (AKA Watermelons*) just believe the government should get more power over the lives and wallets of the citizenry. The environment provides an excellent vehicle to usurp power and control the property of other citizens.
United Nations Climate Chief Christiana Figueres is clearly a dishonest environmental activist. She informs us that Communist China, the world’s leading source of CO2 pollution for several consecutive years since 2007, has the right type of governmental system to fight Global Warming. This can only bring me back to questioning why Christiana Figueres calls herself an environmentalist. If she wants to reduce the extent to which human pollution could potentially warm the terrestrial climate, she should not encourage the world emulate a nation that emits 25% of the world’s industrial CO2 pollution on an annual basis. Not only that, they get about 25% as much GDP per ton of CO2 as the United States and about 13% as much GDP per ton of CO2 as Germany or Japan.

The Supreme Court Term in Review
Perhaps one of the biggest criticisms of the Supreme Court under John Roberts as Chief Justice from liberals on and off the Court is the alleged “favoritism” shown towards business interests. Statistically speaking, this Court does take on a large number of cases that involve business. The main criteria used to determine the importance of these interests is how the US Chamber of Commerce performs | Read More »
Senator Sheldon Whitehouse And Lizz Winstead Refuse To Let A Crisis Go To Waste
I apologize. Lizz Winstead is no longer part of The Daily Show. An earlier version of this article strongly implied that she still directed the content of Daily Show jokes. ‘This tornado is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives,’ wrote comedian Lizz Winstead, in a tweet, around 3:30 Monday afternoon. (HT:Daily Mail) Earlier this Spring I pondered why this | Read More »
No Bag for You: The Stupidity of Banning Plastic Bags
I live in Austin, Texas and I love it. It’s the live music capital of the world, has an amazing food culture and is nearly always warm and sunny. It’s a young city and a vibrant one, growing with a constant influx of folks from across the country including a lot of Californians. However, Austin is also something that most of Texas is not – | Read More »
‘Fracknation’ Seeks the Fracking Truth
If you’re a “low-information voter” whose opinions are shaped solely by the mainstream press, you’ll find the Fracknation story shocking indeed!

Indoctrination: Teaching Hate
New video has surfaced about the mob who took over a recent Boulder County Commission meeting and, instead of engaging in civil discourse, bullied and intimidated those with opposing views, as well as the Boulder County Commissioners. But new video has surfaced raising questions about how far these liberal protestors are willing to go to deliver their message. Not only did they drown out the | Read More »
Anti-Fracking ‘Goons’ Bully and Intimidate Opposing View
At a recent Boulder County Commission meeting, liberal environmental groups used “mob harassment, cursing and intimidation” in an attempt to silence opposition to their fringe view on job creation through energy exploration. The Boulder Daily Camera describes the mob scene: “The meeting was held to discuss proposed oil and gas regulations, including those that would govern the drilling technique known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. | Read More »
Debunking Global Warming – A Tool
Man made Global Warming (AGW) is false. In fact it was so one sided once people started looking at evidence the profiteers started calling it Climate Change. Now I have studied the issue at length. I know all the claims, many of the major players, and I have determined it is all false. I have had this view point from 2003 I believe. Now | Read More »

Obama Punts, Delays Pipeline Decision
So this is leadership. Reuters reports that President Barack Obama plans to announce on Thursday that his administration will explore an alternative route for a Canada-Texas oil pipeline, delaying final approval until after the 2012 presidential election. The $7 billion Keystone XL project is designed to carry oil—the equivalent of more than a million barrels of oil per day—from tar fields in Alberta to refineries | Read More »

EPA Continues War on Coal in Texas
Remember when then Senator Barack Obama said in 2008 that electricity rates would “necessarily skyrocket” as a result of his cap and trade system? He predicted at the time that he would also bankrupt the coal industry. So if someone wants to build a coal power plant, they can, it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they are going to be charged a huge | Read More »
$50 Light bulbs! Unfortunately for you, the green in Green Energy is your dollars…
One has to ask the question about Greens, do they even live on this planet they are trying to save? They often seem to be living in a completely different universe if not just a different planet. The most recent example of this is the LED light bulb, the latest answer to Congress’s 2007 energy efficiency mandate – which was regrettably signed by George Bush. | Read More »
It’s All About Energy.
The DeMarxists are fumbling all over themselves to cover for Obama’s growing exposure to the energy disaster that his party and his politics have brought to fruition. Fair enough, he didn’t start it. He has been, and is, the ultra-left radical environmentalists’ poster-boy for advancing their death grip on America, Americans and the American economy. Good gravy, we all saw this stuff happening… at least | Read More »
Liberals see America as a series of problems waiting for government solutions
In some respects liberals and progressives have it easy. All they have to do is look around and they can find problems for government to solve. Kids are too fat? Let’s get the government to decide how restaurants market their offering. Somebody walked away with a bad haircut? Impose government testing and licensing for barbers. Crime getting out of control? Let’s ban all guns. Someone | Read More »
The Failure of the Environmentalist Lobby
argaret Wende has an excellent article in The Globe and Mail that describes the failure of the environmentalist lobby. She first lambasts environmentalists, politicians and journalists who had such high hopes for the United Nations climate summit in Copenhagen earlier this year. The only surprise was that this outcome should have come as a surprise to so many intelligent people. These people actually seemed to | Read More »
