Look at the chart below (click the image for a link to full version). Study it for two minutes.
Great. You are now smarter than every single scientist who has willingly joined the global warming “consensus.” And when I say smarter, I mean smarter. More intelligent. More knowledgeable.
Because no one can look at these temperature data and still be the least bit panicky about global temperature increases. We are, right now, close to the COLDEST we’ve been in 4,000 years. Even if …
And, apparently, porn watching habits can be used to predict elections . . . with reasonable accuracy.
I suppose this should not be a surprise, based on the makeup of red and blue states (differences in age, marital status, attitudes, etc.)
But porn watching may actually be quite dangerous for the watcher. I am not making a moral judgment here. Rather, there is scientific research that appears to indicate that internet porn may be “poison for the brain.” The video below …
Twenty years ago, when I would hear or see people talking about armageddon, it was almost always in the context of Christian eschatology: The End Times, the Rapture, etc.
Today, I hear people talking about a post-civilizational world, but it’s not a religious vision. It’s a world where oppression and fiscal profligacy lead to collapse, revolt, dystopia, etc. And I see it ten times as often as I ever heard the religious version. More than ever before, people are talking about …
Sound boring? Not interested? You should be.
Public choice theory explains why it is that as long as government has the power to feed special interests by redistributing wealth from one entity to another, it can never be good, and politicians can never be trusted to do the right thing.
And this video explains that in a funny way:
The only ones they refuse to provide are the four abortifacients on the list—those that terminate life.

their religious rights are being violated
their freedom of conscience is being violated
their self-ownership is being violated
their right to commerce is being violated
their right to engage in voluntary transactions with other human beings is being violated, and
their property rights are being violated,
and just ask yourself . . .
How creepy is it that the government is so …
House Republicans have had enough of Lois Lerner and the Obama administration’s relentless stonewalling on the IRS scandal. It’s time to have a showdown with Attorney General Eric Holder.
The first shoe dropped Wednesday when the House Ways and Means Committee voted to send a letter to Holder calling for the criminal prosecution of Lerner for violating the civil rights of taxpayers, misleading investigators, and disclosing confidential tax material.
The second shoe will drop Thursday when the House Oversight Committee votes on whether …
It’s Throwback Thursday . . . but I bet Kyrsten Sinema wishes it weren’t.
In the video below, from 2009, Sinema does three things:
She says we need higher taxes in order to get quality healthcare
That’s nonsense, but it’s not surprising she said it.
She brags about her time on the White House task force that helped craft ObamaCare
That’s not something to be proud of, but it’s not surprising that she was, especially back in 2009 before we knew …
